On Friday, U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Wheeler cleared the way for HUD to proceed with its NOFA awards. However, the judge did not address the issue of the in-state PBCA preference within the NOFA. The plaintiff PBCAs regard the in-state preference as an arbitrary and unfair restriction of competition. It is the understanding of the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) that several of the plaintiff PBCAs will file additional motions with the court in hopes of preventing HUD from issuing awards under the NOFA until the court rules on the appropriateness of the in-state preference.
