Final Rule and Processing Guide

HUD has now published a Final Rule, available here, that revises HUD's regulations for reviewing the previous participation in federal programs of certain participants seeking to take part in multifamily housing and healthcare programs administered by HUD's Office of Housing. The Final Rule clarifies and simplifies the process by which HUD reviews the previous participation of participants that have decision-making authority over their projects.  The Final Rule, together with an accompanying Processing Guide:
  • Clarifies which individuals and entities will undergo review,
  • Clarifies HUD's purpose in conducting such review, and
  • Describes the review to be undertaken. 
 The Processing Guide is now available on HUDCLIPS as Housing Notice 2016-15  Through this guidance, HUD replaces the current previous participation regulations in their entirety.  The Rule and accompanying Participation Guide will become effective on November 14, 2016.
HUD is offering training on the Rule and the Processing Guide on November 7, 2016 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  The training will be via webcast and will also be archived for later viewing.  No registration is necessary to participate.
