HUD announced it has made technical corrections to the PBCA NOFA, including a two month extension to the application deadline and estimated start date. The new PBCA NOFA application deadline is June 11, 2012 and award announcements will be made on August 31, 2012. The PBCA transition period will last from September 1 through November 30. The estimated start date of the Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) is December 1, 2012, which will still have a term of 24 months.
HUD plans to have an interim 2 month contract extension for incumbent PBCAs operating under the limited ACC from October 1 through November 30.
The technical corrections notice also makes changes to the tiebreaker methodology and corrects a typo in the definition of full time equivalent (FTE) hours.
