The Asset Management Team of the Mayor’s Office of Housing oversees and monitors the operation and financial performance of the affordable, multifamily rental housing projects that have been developed with financing from this office. As of 2009, our portfolio is comprised of 167 operational developments containing a total of 9,413 housing units, ranging in size from one unit to 341 units and in age from newly constructed to over 100 years old. These projects serve a variety of low-income populations: families, seniors, disabled individuals, veterans, chronically homeless people, transition-age youth, people with HIV/AIDS, among others.
The Asset Management Team's primary responsibility is to service the over 300 loans and grants provided for these projects to 65 non-profit and for profit organizations. The Team is also responsible for monitoring the compliance of each project with a host of obligations that borrowers and grantees agreed to as a condition of MOH’s financing. The Team's goal is to ensure that all projects financed by MOH are:
• serving the intended low-income target populations with affordable rents
• well-managed and provide decent, safe and sanitary housing
• financially sound and sustainable in the long term.
In performing its duties, the Asset Management Team acts as a steward of public resources and and works to mitigate risk to the City’s investments wherever possible. The Team strives to:
• be responsive and fair
• analyze thoroughly and comprehensively
• work collaboratively and transparently
• maximize efficiency
•build the capacity of the people and organizations that MOH supports.
Annual reporting and periodic inspections are the two primary tools that the Asset Management Team uses to monitor projects, assess their performance, and ensure ongoing compliance.
Annual Monitoring Report
The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) collects data about project operations and fiscal performance. The report is required of most projects that have been financed by MOH. (Project owners should check the financing agreement with MOH to determine whether or not the requirement applies to a project.) The report is due on April 30 for projects whose business year ends on 12/31 and on October 31 for projects whose business year ends on 6/30, and it must be submitted in electronic form only to email@example.com. For more information about the AMR, contact Mike McLoone.

The Asset Management Team conducts periodic inspections of projects financed by MOH to determine if they are being operated in compliance with the terms of the MOH financing agreements and applicable City and federal regulations. The inspections entail a physical inspection of the project, as well as an examination of tenant files and property management records.

Affordability Restrictions – Income Limits and Maximum Rents
To ensure that the rental housing financed by MOH is available to and affordable to low-income people, each project is subject to a set of affordability restrictions, which are enforced through a financing agreement and/or a deed restriction, often referred to as a “Declaration of Restrictions.” The affordability restrictions define the income limit(s) that apply to a project and set the maximum rents that can be charged, and among other things, they may also set limits on annual rent increases. Income limits and maximum rents change annually, based on data from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The limits and maximums for 2013 are effective January 1, 2013, see links below:
