SAHF Submits Letter to HUD on PBCA Rebid 2022

October 04, 2022

The Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future submits a letter to HUD respectfully requesting the withdrawal of the draft solicitation 86614622R00001 to more fully engage with stakeholders about the performance-based contract administration (PBCA) program and ensure that any future solicitation(s) recognize the importance of a state-based model.

This letter highlights the concerns that SAHF and its members have with the draft solicitation released on July 27, which moves away from a proven state-based model and instead contemplates the regionalization of PBCA responsibilities, directs HUD administration of some current PBCA roles, and apparently exclude states Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) from bidding. These actions would result in PBCAs without local knowledge or commitment to the communities and could make it more difficult for agencies with resources to identify the need and opportunity to preserve properties with maturing contracts.
