Focused Topics

There’s much more to affordable housing than just eligibility, rent calculations, and EIV. PMCS recognizes other critical operational tasks that managers must oversee to maintain compliance. Whether it’s mandatory changes to existing procedures, implementation of new requirements, or adaptation to a new HUD initiative, the industry’s obligation to react, can influence, and often shift, the training needs of the industry to topics that go beyond the fundamentals. This training series focuses on these “hot topic issues” that affect a broad array of properties. Classes in this category are relevant for all – from new managers through advanced industry veterans.

TRACS 203A

Prerequisite: None

HUD is implementing a new TRACS software, version TRACS 203A, which is scheduled to roll out February 1, 2018. Are you ready? Attend this PMCS webinar and gain insight into the upcoming TRACS 203A changes. This is a must attend webinar for ALL site personnel who do tenant recerts and/or anyone who creates, reviews or sends the voucher MAT files to TRACS.

There are other changes in this release; but the major change is to the Repayment Schedule, Part 6 of the voucher. If you have any open, unpaid repayment agreements (for current or moved out tenants who are still making payments) a new baseline file of your repayment agreements must be created and transmitted to your TCA/PBCA/HUD, where applicable before you transmit your first voucher in the new TRACS 203A format.
There is a 4-month transition period for Owner/Agents to convert their compliance software from TRACS 202D to 203A – February 1, 2018 thru May 31, 2018. All MAT file transmissions must be in the new 203A format by May 31, 2018.

Our trainer, Jeanette Claus, CPA, COS, TaCCs, PMCS Director, is back with another class to help you understand the upcoming TRACS 203A changes and how those changes will affect you and your property.

This class includes a review of the new Race and Ethnicity categories/sub-codes and a major revision to Part 6 (MAT30 Section 7) of the Voucher which is being renamed ‘Repayments and Escrows’ Several fields are being added to this section of the voucher to better report and track these transactions by your CA, HUD and the OIG. Be ready for this big change – current specs require the entire voucher to be rejected when there are repayment agreement errors. Contract Administrators are not allowed to make the changes/corrections to the data submitted on the voucher!

MORs Part I – Understanding the Mechanics of a HUD MOR

This class is perfect for new managers who have never undergone a MOR or seasoned managers that want an overview of how the process has changed since 2012. Because the majority of HUD’s multifamily properties have not undergone a MOR in nearly five years, the May 2016 nationwide reinstatement of PBCA-conducted MORs has many asking: What exactly happens during a review? How is my score determined? How often will these MORs occur?

In Part I of this two-part series, participants will learn about each of the four stages of the MOR, new elements of the HUD Form 9834, the scoring methodology, and HUD’s risk-based approach to scheduling.

Once participants complete Part I, they are encouraged to register for Part II, which focuses on specific leasing and occupancy assessments that must be complete to be compliant and ready.

Think you don’t have time for webinar training on MORs? Can you afford not to? Investment for training now could yield a significant amount of time and monetary savings for you in post-MOR remedies.
