Chapter 9 Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook Drafting Table Open

In an effort to ensure that HAP contracts are aligned with market rents and to streamline transactions where a HAP renewal is required, HUD is proposing a set of revisions to the Rent Comparability Study guidance. A revised version of Chapter 9 of the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook has been posted to the Multifamily Housing Policy Drafting Table, and may be reviewed here.
As you review this draft, please document any comments or suggested changes on this response worksheet.
Submit your feedback to HUD via email at
Written comments may be submitted until close of business on May 23, 2022. 
In addition to written comments, Multifamily Housing is planning a listening session where stakeholders may share feedback about the proposed revisions. That listening session will occur during the last week of the comment period. An invitation to that listening session will be sent in early May.
