HUD Publishes New 2022 Limits for HOME Maximum Per-Unit Subsidies

In accordance with Section 206A of the National Housing Act, HUD has adjusted the basic statutory mortgage limits for Multifamily Housing Programs for calendar year 2022. These limits are effective for the HOME Program on March 17, 2022, until such date that the basic statutory mortgage limits for Multifamily Housing Programs for calendar year 2023 are published in the Federal Register.

View the 2022 Section 234 limits and guidance on the HOME maximum per-unit subsidy limits.

Due to the discontinuation of the Section 221(d)(3) mortgage insurance program, alternate maximum per-unit subsidy limits must be used for the HOME Program. HUD is required to undertake rulemaking to establish new maximum per-unit subsidy limits for the HOME Program because it is no longer updating and publishing limits for the Section 221(d)(3) mortgage insurance program.

Until a new rule can be published, HUD published CPD Notice 15-003: Interim Policy on Maximum Per-Unit Subsidy Limits for the HOME Program establishing an interim policy that Field Office staff and Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) must follow directing PJs to use the Section 234-Condominium Housing basic mortgage limits, for elevator-type projects, as an alternative to the Section 221(d)(3) limits in order to determine the maximum amount of HOME funds a PJ may invest on a per-unit basis in HOME-assisted housing projects. This interim policy remains in effect until the effective date of the new final rule provisions, amending the existing provisions of 24 CFR 92.250(a).

HUD also issued HOMEfires - Vol. 12, No. 1: Guidance on Using the Base City High Cost Percentages to Determine the Maximum Per-Unit Subsidy Limits for HOME. The HOMEfires provides guidance on if HUD will allow a PJ that is not listed on the published list of "Base City High Cost Percentages" to use the high-cost percentage of its HUD Multifamily Hub to determine the maximum per-unit subsidy limits for HOME.
