Collection: Managing Multifamily HAP Contracts


Are you confident that your staff understands the complicated Section 8 project-based renewal process? Early planning and preparation are essential! Don’t miss our newest class, Managing Multifamily HAP Contracts. Nan McKay & Associates is the only training company currently offering this type of training.

Education and preparation are the two key components to ensure a timely and effective contract renewal. Understanding the terms of the initial HAP contract, options available to your specific property, and long term goals for the units are the pillars of a solid contract renewal. Early planning and preparation will provide a seamless and timely submission and review, and will secure a renewed contract without interruption in payments of HAP.

In this class we will cover:

  • What is involved in the renewal process 
  • Submission timing and requirements 
  • Rent comparability studies 
  • Rent adjustments during the contract terms 
  • A detailed review of the six options available to traditional PBRA properties 
  • Termination of the contract and steps involved 
  • Residual receipts 
  • Tenant issues and related required notices 
  • Physical condition requirements 
  • Section 8BB transfer of budget authority 
  • Comparison of the types of assistance at a project
  • Rent adjustments
  • Section 8 bb transfers
  • Tenant issues
  • Program compatibility studies
  • Residual receipt accounts

We will also walk though a case study of a property ready for renewal and discuss: the process for reviewing the original HAP contract, how to determine what options are available, review of budget and property position, long term goals for the property, and what options and terms might be best.
