Footnotes:

  1. The White House budget states that its $5.035 billion request represents 100 percent proration for the Operating Fund. HUD’s formula uses an unrealistic inflation factor and is based on rents charged, not collected. PHAs have been unable to collect rents at pre-COVID levels and this has greatly affected their ability to operate effectively.
  2. This amount includes administrative fees for renewal vouchers and administrative fees for recommended incremental vouchers.
