Mark to Market for Owners

Owners of properties with expiring Section 8 contracts initiate the Mark to Market (M2M) process when they request a Section 8 contract renewal and select options in accordance with the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guide Book, last published in 2017, 120 days before Section 8 contract expires.

The owner notifies the HUD Multifamily Program Center or Hub of their renewal selection.

Owners with questions about the status of their M2M properties may e-mail us at or refer to the status reports: PDF format or Excel spreadsheet. Note: Use Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer to View/Open the Excel File
