Clarendon Awarded Connecticut Contract


Clarendon has been awarded a contract with the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) to provide Reviews of HUD Section 8 Rent Comparability Studies (RCS) for the State of Connecticut.

Section 8 laws and administrative procedures require HUD to obtain and review Rent Comparability Studies (RCS) when initially renewing most Section 8 contracts and when processing some rent increase using the Annual Adjustment Factors. The market rents resulting from these studies determine the rents owners can receive and, hence greatly influence whether an owner will renew and continue providing assisted housing or optout of the Section 8 contract and convert to unassisted, market rent housing. The market rents set in these studies also drive HUD’s outlays for Section 8 project-based subsidy.
