A few weeks ago, members of Berkadia FHA/HUD attended and spoke at the Eastern Lenders Association regional conference. Matt Sato, VP and Deputy Chief Underwriter of Berkadia FHA/HUD provided an update on the Northeast HUD Region Construction Administration with a concentration on the Heavy 223(F) program. Due to roadblocks encountered by HUD as it relates to recent Heavy F submissions, the panel provided direct guidance to the pertinent MAP Guide Chapters and industry best practices.

All Eyes on Affordable:

A key takeaway from the Eastern Lenders Association was the focus on the demand for Affordable and middle-income Housing. HUD is focused on the production of more sub-rehab of existing Affordable deals and new construction of Affordable and middle-income projects throughout the region.

What’s Next: Rent and Income Limits Forecast

Each year, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases Multifamily Tax Subsidy Project (MTSP) Income Limits for each county across the country which plays a critical role in determining the rent and limits for assisted housing programs.

This year, HUD intends to release 2023 median family incomes along with the Multifamily Tax Subsidy Rent and Income Limits on or around May 15, 2023. Berkadia’s Research experts explored projected 2023 Rent and Income Limits in 10 key markets ahead of the announcement.
