OCAF Rent Adjustments

Operating Cost Adjustment Factor (OCAF) rent increases are based on the Operating Cost Adjustment Factors released by HUD annually in the Federal Register. Guidance for OCAF Adjustment requests can be found in the Section 8 Renewal Policy.


Eligibility is determined by your HAP contract. If the Rent Adjustment section of your contract refers to Operating Cost Adjustment Factor (OCAF) adjustments, you are eligible to submit an OCAF request. Generally, properties that have renewed under MAHRA are eligible to submit OCAF rent adjustment requests.

Submission Requirements

  • OCAF Worksheet
  • Utility Allowance Analysis (if applicable)
  • Mortgage Statement showing current Debt service
