The Houston Housing Authority retained Econometrica to appeal the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-published fair market rents (FMRs).. Econometrica was tasked to complete a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development approved rental survey in submission-ready format; obtain rental cost data that are statistically representative of the FY 2020 HUD Metropolitan Fair Market Area for Houston; and demonstrate whether a change is warranted from the proposed FY 2020 HUD FMRs. Econometrica was responsible for producing a survey acceptable to HUD and carrying out all aspects of the survey effort.
