NMA Model Administrative Plan and Guide 

2017: The bulk of the changes for the second revision for 2017 of the NMA Model Administrative Plan and Guide are due to the issuance of Notice PIH 2017-08, which provided guidance on the implementation of the VAWA 2013 final rule. This affected multiple chapters and required extensive revisions throughout the plan. In addition, the Model Administrative Plan has also been brought current with all recent HUD requirements and guidance, including the following:

  • Changes with respect to the alternative requirements set forth in FR Notice 12/29/14, which prohibited denial of assistance or termination for failure to comply with the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) contract of participation
  • Additional changes with respect to the Lead-Based Paint final rule, particularly as it relates to housing quality standards (HQS)
  • Updates to the policies and procedures regarding hearings and rehearings to clarify and more closely match regulations
  • Other clarifications and corrections to bring the content current with HUD regulations and guidance

NMA Model Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP) and Guide 

2017: The bulk of the changes for the second revision for 2017 of the NMA Model Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP) and Guide are due to the issuance of Notice PIH 2017-08, which provided guidance on the implementation of the VAWA 2013 final rule.
