HUD (Finally) Issues Housing Choice Voucher Admin Fee Study.

HUD began this study in 2010.

HUD PR of study results is HERE.

Web page for admin fee study materials is HERE.  In reviewing the detailed report on this page, it appears that NONE of the 60 surveyed PHA's were from Oregon. 

As of the moment no detailed information about gainers and losers under the proposed formula change is provided so it is not clear how Oregon PHA's would be impacted by a change in admin fee calculations. I anticipate this information will be available once the study is published for formal public comment.

Registration for a related Friday April 17 web conference is HERE.

Map [and Excel file] of Oregon HUD/FHA Multifamily Insured Loans: 2010-2014. $1.2 Billion, 14,500+ Units; Health Care Loans Were 33% of Total.

Using Portland based Batchgeo.com, I created a Google map HERE below and embedded below showing all 127 Oregon HUD/FHA insured MF projects that were insured from 2010 to 2014; if you would like to download a link to the Google Earth KML file with this information you can do so HERE

Health Care Related Loans, 1/3rd of Oregon Total
HERE is a link to the Excel file with more project level details, including lender, length of loan, interest rate, etc. That file opens to a pivot table showing unit and mortgage totals by Oregon city.  

This Excel file also has a worksheet and pivot table with only health care related loans (assisted living, nursing homes, and hospitals). Those health care related loans [including refinances] represented 1/3rd of HUD/FHA Oregon multifamily units /$$ insured by HUD/FHA during this 5 year period.

HUD's national database of active FHA MF loans is available HERE
