Budget Based Rent Adjustments (BBRA) for Mark-to-Market (M2M) Properties



BBRAs are available for existing M2M properties that lack sufficient project income to operate and maintain the property on a sustainable basis for the long-term. BBRAs are to increase housing assistance payment contract (HAP) rents to levels that can support property expenses, including debt service coverage and deposits into a reserve for replacements. Properties will be prioritized based on its condition and the relationship between the property’s contract rents and the Fair Market Rent, due to limited funding.
