The Operating Cost Adjustment Factors (OCAFs) for fiscal year (FY) 2020 were published on November 22, 2019 in the Federal Register. These factors are used for adjusting or establishing Section 8 rents under the Multifamily Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 1997 (MAHRA), as amended, for projects assisted with Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments. The factors are effective February 11, 2020.
