This Notice informs the public that HUD is delaying the effective date of the rule entitled, "Refinement of Income and Rent Determination Requirements in Public and Assisted Housing Programs" published in the Federal Register on January 27, 2009. This rule, which was originally scheduled to become effective on March 30, 2009, (except for the mandatory use of EIV for Multifamily which was originally scheduled to become effective on September 30, 2009) will become effective on September 30, 2009, including the mandatory use of EIV for Multifamily.

This Notice informs the public of HUD's intent to enter into a new computer matching program with SSA in May 2009. HUD will obtain the SSA data and make it available, in part, to 1) owners and management agents (O/As) responsible for managing and operating multifamily housing properties, 2) contract administrators (CAs) responsible for overseeing O/A management and operation of multifamily housing properties, and 3) independent public auditors (IPAs) responsible for auditing both public housing agencies (PHAs) and O/As.
