OCI revises capital fund guidebook

This week on the Office of Capital Improvements (OCI) website, HUD posted a revised version of the Capital Fund Guidebook. The new, undated version replaces the original guidebook, which was dated August 2015. While the 2015 version was numbered “Handbook 7600.1,” the new version does not have a handbook number.

The following brief announcement was posted to the OCI home page:

The capital fund guidebook details the requirements contained under the public housing capital fund program final rule, including but not limited to eligible and ineligible activities and cost limits; decoupling of the capital fund from the PHA plan submission; replacement housing factor grants (RHF) and demolition and disposition transitional funding (DDTF); changes in obligation and expenditure end dates and close-out requirements; emergency, non-presidentially declared natural disaster, and safety and security grant program requirements; streamlined mixed-finance and other public housing modernization and development requirements; changes to demonstration programs such as RAD and MTW; and capital fund rule impact on security interests and financing activities.
