Marketing Our Section 8 Property Using Concessions

It’s not allowed! We recently did a file audit on a HUD Section 8 property and discovered that they were giving concessions to section 8 residents for resident referrals. That might be a great idea for the Conventional applicants but it does not apply to HUD Section 8. I vaguely remembered that it was not […]

TRACS 202 D and Extenuating Circumstances

What happens when an affordable housing tenant is unable to sign the HUD 50059? Let’s just say a tenant has been in the hospital, in/out of intensive care since the middle of Sept. His AR is due 12/1/2014. As per his brother, it is unlikely the tenant will be able to sign or understand what […]

How to Correct a Move-Out in TRACS 202D

What happens when we processed a Move-Out (50059-A) for a tenant for the wrong date? How can we fix this? Once a Move-Out (MAT40) transaction for a household has been processed, the ‘Move-Out Code’ can be corrected by submitting a subsequent Move-Out (MAT40) transaction for the same effective date

Foster Adults and Foster Children in Section 8

The discussion of Foster Adults and Foster Children has come up a lot in recent affordable housing conversations. The confusion stems from the changes in policy as we transition from TRACS 202C to the TRACS 202D release. I have found that in some of my classes when I have asked my attendees if any income […]

TRACS 202D and Repayment Agreements

Although I have previously written an article on this subject before it wasn’t until now that there was some more clarity from TRACS 202D and the impending TRACS release in September. Through this release we now have a recovery system in place through a new Section 7 of the MAT 30 record. However the question […]

When the Contract Administrator’s Software Can’t Handle a Certification That TRACS Will Accept

What do you do when the Contract Administrator’s (CA’s) software has limitations in processing a particular certification but the site software has complete functionality? This has been an ongoing issue for many years. The CA imposes their limitations and expects the site to work around it. It’s always good to try and work things out, […]

Just Some of the New TRACS 202D Changes

The most recent TRACS 202d Industry meeting held on March 13th & 14th was two days of great information. HDS Software was nice enough to sponsor the first unsanctioned HUD meeting where we covered the TRACS 202d Final Specifications.
