HOTMA Final Rule

The Latest on HOTMA

Moving Forward Together

Keeping you updated on Sections 102 and 104 of HOTMA

Welcome to our resource page for the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA). As HUD continues to develop and update HOTMA and its implementation plan, NMA is hard at work to keep our trainings, our products, and your PHA updated as well. 

HUD is discussing the feasibility of delaying the compliance date for Sections 102 and 104 of HOTMA in part to allow for HOTMA-compliant 2024 versions of the 50058 forms to be developed in HIP. As you know, under the current requirements, PHAs must set a compliance date no later than January 1, 2025.

Latest news:

  • In a letter to executive directors on June 17, 2024, HUD announced that the HIP implementation timeline has been postponed; HUD has not yet announced a new implementation schedule.
  • Please note, HUD guidance on unemployment income has changed. See our June 3 FAQ.
  • Review what your PHA needs to do to get ready for HOTMA in a two-hour, online HOTMA Action Plan Session.

When do you need to comply with HOTMA? NMA's latest guidance on when your PHA needs to start implementing HOTMA is this article by Samantha Sowards from Feb. 29, 2024.
