Further, ICF will coordinate the development and delivery of rent comparability studies to establish appropriate rent ceilings for the vouchers.
"The award of this contract continues ICF's strong history supporting USDA Rural Development in its efforts to preserve and extend the availability of affordable rental housing in rural areas and build healthy rural communities," said Eric Oetjen, senior vice president for ICF International.
