Q: “Are prevailing wages required to be paid on maintenance work?”
A: No. HUD issued and FAQ on June 19, 2015 stating that Davis-Bacon prevailing wages do not apply to the HTF program. (NLHIC is disappointed that Davis-Bacon wages will not apply. Yes, decent wages raise the cost of developing affordable housing. However, it seems counterproductive to pay wages that might make the workers extremely low income and therefore eligible to live in a HTF home.)
