At HDS, our primary goal is to ensure that our NextGen Software Solutions and Services meet and exceed the business objectives of our HFA Agency partners while remaining on time and within budget. 

To that aim, we host the HDS NextGen Working Group Series on the second Tuesday of every month. Our Software team meets with our Agency partners and their staff to discuss new and upcoming items, as well as premiere product enhancements and modifications. Through these monthly sessions, we have the opportunity further to understand your Agency’s ongoing evolving needs and requirements. We always approach your goals as if they were our own; after all, your success is our success. 

During our July Working Group, we reviewed the recently published MOR Rule and Notice that will go into effect on September 26, 2022. The notice can be found in the Federal Register at Management and Occupancy Review (MOR) Rule and Notice. 

The MOR Rule establishes a frequency for the completion of MORs based upon a project’s previous MOR score and the project’s rating under HUD’s risk-based asset management model. HUD believes that moving to a risk-based MOR schedule will enhance the Department’s oversight of the Section 8 HAP program to improve overall program effectiveness and advance HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. 

We thank everyone who joined our HDS NextGen July Working Group Series. Feedback from clients, content recommendations, and queries are always appreciated. Please send your feedback to Charlene Vassil at charlene.vassil@hdfsoftware.com
