The U.S. Department of Energy forecasts a three-year high in 2022 for average residential utility costs across the U.S. that may affect families who pay for some or all of their household’s utility bills.

In response, the Office of Multifamily Housing has developed this flyer that includes helpful resources for owners and agents to maintain compliance with HUD’s utility allowance calculation requirements and to improve energy efficiency at Multifamily properties.

For more information, please contact your local HUD office or Contract Administrator with questions about utility allowances.
