The Housing Opportunity through Modernization Act (HOTMA) has made numerous changes to the Housing Choice Voucher program and Public Housing.

This class will view HOTMA through the lens of how it affects different program aspects at the micro and macro levels. We will review the optional and required policy decisions PHAs must make to comply with HOTMA.

We will provide scenarios on how HOTMA will be changing the way we calculate, adjust, and determine income and eligibility.

Focusing on the following three sections of HOTMA:

  • Section 102 – Income Reviews
  • Section 103 – Over-Income Tenants of Public Housing (in effect)
  • Section 104 – Asset Limitations


  • Identify regulatory changes in eligibility and annual income for applicants and participant families.
  • Understand where the program has changed.
  • Determine Administrative Plan/ACOP Revisions to existing and new policies.
  • Update knowledge on what is considered income and what is excluded.
  • Calculate rents and apply correct allowances at initial, new admission, interim, and annual re-examination.
  • Operationalize the phase-in and hardship clauses built within the changes to limit impacts on families.
  • Obtain knowledge on when to process interim re-examinations and determine the effective dates.
  • Refresh knowledge of the student rule.
  • Pre-emptively celebrate the end of EID, which is within two years of the final rule.
