HUD Resources and Updates
CoC and ESG Virtual Binders cover foundational topics from the Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) programs, with the goal to transfer basic knowledge to grantees in order to more successfully administer their projects. Each binder reflects a range of learning styles and offers a variety of ways to interact with the topics.
INSPIRE Implementation Update-October 2, 2023
The implementation date for NSPIRE has been delayed from October 1, 2023 to October 1, 2024, giving grantee’s an additional year to prepare for this new physical condition standard. Specially, HUD is extending the compliance date for the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Housing Trust Fund (HTF), Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Solution Grants (ESG) and Continuum of Care (COC) programs until October 1, 2024. HUD is taking this action to allow jurisdictions, participants, and grantees additional time to incorporate HUD’s NSPIRE standards specific to their own programs and the flexibility to transition to NSPIRE under their own timelines.
What’s NSPIRE again? It’s the new National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate. The Notice delaying implementation was published on 9/18/2023 and is available here.
