Earlier this year the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed (by a vote of 427 Yeas to 0 Nays) H.R. 3700, “Housing Opportunity through Modernization Act” (HOTMA). HOTMA proposes the first major reform to the federal rental assistance program in eighteen years. The bill eases administrative burdens for housing agencies and owners, while delivering more efficient and flexible assistance to low-income households and helping to preserve public housing.
