Explain and Discuss

The goal of the video series is to explain and discuss common issues and activities that occur post-repositioning.

Understand Responsibilities

Each video will help PHAs understand their asset management and reporting responsibilities in the project-based voucher (PBV) program following repositioning actions leading to PBVs.

Quick Guidance

Each video in the series provides quick guidance on a specific topic and is about ten minutes long.


How to Apply OCAF for RAD PBV

This video specifically addresses a common issue that occurs after a Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) conversion. The video walks you through how to apply the Operating Cost Adjustment Factor (OCAF) to adjust contract rents for RAD PBV units. The video includes a short tutorial on how to use the optional excel-based tool that is available on the RAD Resource Desk.

First Year Funding Overview

This video covers what PHAs should expect with respect to funding in the first full year after a public housing property converts under RAD Component 1 from public housing to PBV. The video discusses the importance of completing and submitting the survey that HUD distributes, in August or September, during the project’s first full year of PBV housing choice voucher (HCV) funding.

Phase-in of Tenant Rents

This video covers the basic requirements that PHAs must follow during a RAD conversion to establish a tenant rent phase-in process. In some circumstances, rents may increase for families when the property converts from public housing to PBV. This video discusses the options PHAs may consider when designing their tenant rent phase-in policy.

Independent Entity (IE) Approval Process

This video covers how a PHA requests HUD approval for an Independent Entity (IE). The video discusses the basics of what an IE is, when it is needed, and the functions an IE can perform. The video also reviews how an IE is approved and highlights things PHAs should consider when selecting an IE.

VMS and PIC Reporting

This video will help PHAs understand post-reporting requirements after a RAD conversion as they move from asset management to the HCV program. The video discusses the two HUD systems where PHAs are required to report RAD PBV data – Public Housing Information Center (PIC) and Voucher Management System (VMS).
