Model policy revisions now available online

Posted by NMA on Jul 23, 2018 9:22:10 AM

Our writing team has been working hard to make our policy updates available immediately, so our revision services customers don't have to wait to receive a CD with updates in the mail. (And a lot of our customers don't even have CD drives anymore to access the files with!)

With that in mind, we've created a new site where agencies who have signed up for policy updates can access the files as soon as we upload them. If you're a subscriber, you should have received an email with your login information. If you haven't, please contact revisions@nanmckay.com.

The new site will include policy updates for the following products:

It will also provide:

  • Our searchable and updated CFRs as a free service for all revisions subscribers
  • Two years of back policies for subscribers who may need to catch up
  • A hands-on video to help you step-by-step through the download process

If you're a subscriber to our model admin plan updates, you can get on the site now and download the brand-new 2018 revision! The model plan has been brought current with all recent HUD requirements and guidance, including the following:

  • Changes to account for the updated administrative guidance for the effective and mandated use of the EIV system, as outlined in Notice PIH 2017-12
  • Updates concerning Notice PIH 2017-13, which discusses the Lead Safe Housing Rule as it relates to elevated blood lead levels (EBLLs) in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Project-Based Voucher (PBV) programs
  • Revisions for the implementation guidance on the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA) HCV and PBV provisions described in Notice PIH 2017-21
  • Modifications pertaining to the interim final rule published December 12, 2017, which implemented the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, slightly revising some of the streamlining options allowable under the streamlining final rule from March 2016
  • Changes for guidance set forth in Notice PIH 2018-01 on recent changes in Fair Market Rent (FMR) payment standard, and rent reasonableness requirements

The 2018 model ACOP revisions will be posted in a few weeks.
