NCHM - National Center for Housing Management

NCHM - National Center for Housing Management The National Center for Housing Management provides in-depth training, education and certifications for property and housing managers throughout the US.
(35)

The National Center for Housing Management (NCHM) was founded in 1972 by Presidential Executive Order #11668. We take our role as the only private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) training and education organization in the housing industry with a great sense of pride and responsibility. Our mission, vision, and values statements reflect this sense of duty in our commitment to our customers in the field of housing. Vision Statement Our vision for the future is one in which the housing industry of the United States is marked by excellence at all levels of management. At the core of this vision is the belief that the housing industry maintains one of the most fundamental resources in our society: shelter. We believe that the long term strategic development and maintenance of this resource cannot be successful unless all housing professionals are held to a level of excellence and accountability through education and certification requirements. Only the National Center for Housing Management, as the independent leader of the housing industry since 1972, has the resources and will to make this vision a reality.

Mission: The National Center for Housing Management's mission is taken directly from our constituting document. NCHM's mission is "to provide objective and independent leadership at the national level in helping meet the Nation's housing management and training needs…" (Presidential Executive Order 11668, signed April 21, 1972). NCHM's bold and innovative strides toward this organizational mission can be experienced most directly in the development of comprehensive training and certification programs. NCHM's management improvement services, ranging from compliance and performance education to technical support and consulting, provide housing industry organizations with the very independent leadership and support NCHM was called upon to provide three decades ago.

Don't Forget! FAST Act Interim Final Rule is Effective March 12, 2018.

On December 12, 2017, HUD published an interim final rule in the Federal Register that amends the regulatory language for PIH and Multifamily Housing rental assistance programs. This interim rule went into effect on March 12, 2018. The rule aligns the current regulatory flexibilities with those provided in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. In addition, it extends two of the administrative streamlining changes that were adopted in 2016 for the Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing programs to Multifamily programs.

The interim final rule implements FAST Act provisions that allow public housing agencies (PHAs) and multifamily housing owners to conduct full income recertification for families with 90 percent or more of their income from fixed-income sources every three years instead of annually. This interim final rule also aligns the current regulatory flexibilities with those provided in the FAST Act by modifying the earlier streamlining regulations. This makes the procedures for families meeting the fixed-income threshold as similar as possible to families who do not have 90 percent or more of their income from fixed sources, but still have some fixed income.

In addition to streamlining fixed income stipulations, the interim final rule also indicates that an owner may:
• Make utility reimbursements of $45 or less per quarter
($15 a month) on a quarterly basis.

• Accept family declaration of assets under $5,000.
Third-party verification of all family assets will be required
every 3 years.

Use of streamlined procedures authorized by the rule are all at the option of the owner and not required.

A FAQ file is available on HUD.gov. Additional FAQ’s and a supporting Housing Notice are currently being developed. Project owners are encouraged to submit any questions to their assigned Contract Administrator or local HUD office.

The Office of Multifamily Housing Programs has released an updated Resident Rights and Responsibilities brochure on March 7, 2018.

It is available to download and print at:

https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/Housing/documents/resident_rights_brochure_8.pdf

This document provides a summary of key resident rights and responsibilities for tenants living in Multifamily assisted housing along with resources and contact information for tenants needing assistance. Owners must provide applicants and tenants with a copy of the Resident Rights and Responsibilities brochure at move-in and annually at recertification.

The Office of Multifamily Housing Programs encourages owners and management agents to distribute this brochure electronically, in addition to having printed copies available for tenants who prefer hardcopies.

Translation of the updated brochure to other languages is currently pending and will be posted to HUD's Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity website at https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/fair_housing_equal_opp, once complete.

Printed copies are not currently available from the Multifamily National Clearing House but may be available in limited quantities later this year.

Some of the greatest people come from Maryland; our COS Baltimore students particularly agree!

One Marylander in particular, Frederick Douglass, was born on this day 200 years ago! We're spending his birthday in our training room, tackling #TheNewCOS! Coincidentally, the training room was named after him!

Students are feeling the love and the serendipity today, and they're excited to carry on the legacy of amazing Marylanders. 🦀💛🖤

BREAKING NEWS: HUD Publishes Interim Final Rule on Streamlining Administrative Regulations and Implementing Family Income Reviews Under the FAST Act - December 12, 2017.

The interim final rule implements FAST Act provisions that allow public housing agencies (PHAs) and multifamily housing owners to conduct full income recertification for families with 90 percent or more of their income from fixed-income every three years instead of annually. This interim final rule also aligns the current regulatory flexibilities with those provided in the FAST Act by modifying the earlier streamlining regulations. This would make the procedures for families meeting the fixed-income threshold as similar as possible to families who do not have 90 percent or more of their income from fixed sources, but still have some fixed income.

In addition to streamlining fixed income stipulations, the interim final rule also indicates that an owner may:

o Make utility reimbursements of $45 or less per quarter
($15 a month) on a quarterly basis.

o Accept family declaration of assets under $5,000.
Third-party verification of all family assets will be required
every 3 years.

Although HUD is issuing these changes as an interim final rule, the Department has delayed the effective date for a period of 90 days (March 12, 2018). This allows participants in Multifamily housing programs and other interested parties to submit comments during the first 30-day period following publication of the interim rule. HUD will take any comments received by January 11, 2018 into consideration and determine whether any further changes should be made before publication of a final rule. Directions on the submission of comments may be found in the Federal Register.

This past week, NCHM - National Center for Housing Management held its first class in San Juan, Puerto Rico since the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

To this day, there are still hundreds of thousands without power and other basic necessities. Aside from training brought to these smiling faces, NCHM was also fortunate enough to donate batteries, radios and flashlights to some of those in the mountain areas still without power.

It's not much, but every little donation is a step in the right direction to get Puerto Rico back to business.

Multifamily Utility Allowance Factors | HUD USER

2018 Operating Cost Adjustment Factors (OCAFs) and Utility Allowance Factors Now Available.

The Operating Cost Adjustment Factors (OCAF) for 2018 were published today in the Federal Register. These factors are used for adjusting or establishing Section 8 rents under the Multifamily Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 1997 (MAHRA), as amended, for projects assisted with Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments. The factors are effective February 11, 2018 and can be found at https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-11-02/pdf/2017-23901.pdf.

Utility Allowance Factors for 2018, which may be used to adjust baseline utility allowances prepared in accordance with Housing Notice 2015-04, are also now available on HUDUser at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/muaf.html.

Note to PBCAs and HUD staff processing rents adjustments using Auto OCAF: As of today, the 2018 Factors are updated in iREMS. Please delete any Amend Rents records effective 02/11/2018 and beyond that were created either automatically or manually with the old 2017 Factors. A new record will automatically generate with the new 2018 Factor. Neither PBCAs, nor submitting owners, should be penalized by HUD for delays related to the late release of 2018 factors.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Housing permits owners/agents to use Utility Allowance Factors (UAFs) for projects subject to the requirements found in Housing’s Utility Analysis Notice. The notice describes when owners/agents of Multifamily Housing properties that receiv...

As we began our TCS class on Wednesday, we were greeted with contrasting views: a serene DC skyline and an entanglement of DC traffic! TCS class is a lot like that scene! We start from the ground up, trying to untangle the complicated rules of tax credit compliance, and our students leave the class with the serenity of having those rules arranged nicely within their minds.

Who says compliance can't be fun?

Well...just about everyone...but here's the attendees at our #COS program in Syracuse, New York, they must not have gotten the memo. Here they are in silly glasses, which they all put on before taking today's exam. Now that's one way to avoid test-day anxiety!

Good luck to everyone taking an NCHM exam today!

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey, including those still facing a historic flooding event.

Once the weather threat has subsided in your area, be sure to use extreme caution when doing your damage assessments.

Even areas with little damage can have damaged utility transmission lines or other life-threatening dangers. Safety first!

BELFOR Property Restoration, the company that helps us recover from disasters, has arrived at Live Oak Village in Aransas Pass, TX, located adjacent to Rockport, TX, where Hurricane Harvey came on shore. They are at work tarping roofs, boarding windows and securing vulnerable areas. Thank goodness, none of our residents in Texas are hurt!
