Notice of Final Fair Market Rents (FMRs) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2009, technical correction.
On September 29, 2008, the Department published its FY2009 Final FMRs for the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program. In that notice, HUD incorrectly identified Schedule B as proposed FY2009 FMRs when the rents published were in fact the final FY2009 Final FMRs. Today's Federal Register notice corrects the title of Schedule B to “FY2009 Final Fair Market Rents For Existing Housing.”
Effective Date: October 1, 2008.Start Further Info

On September 29, 2008 (73 FR 56638), the Department published its FY2009 Final Fair Market Rents for the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program. As required by section 8(c)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937, the September 29, 2008, notice provided final FY2009 FMRs for all areas that reflect the estimated 40th and 50th percentile rent levels trended to April 1, 2009, using the 2006 American Community Survey data, and more recent Consumer Price Index rent and utility indexes. In that notice, HUD incorrectly identified Schedule B as proposed FY2009 FMRs when the rents published were in fact the final FY2009 Final FMRs. To avoid any confusion, the Department is publishing today's notice to correct the title of Schedule B to “FY2009 Final Fair Market Rents for Existing Housing.” Only the title of the Schedule B is changed by today's notice: the FMRs published on September 29, 2008, are the final FY2009 FMRs.
Accordingly, the document published on September 29, 2008 (73 FR 56638) is corrected to change the title of all pages of the table in Schedule B to “FY2009 Final Fair Market Rents For Existing Housing”.Start Signature
