HUD GREEN PHYSICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

  • Follow the requirements and guidelines established by HUD which describes the required approach to GPNAs.
  • Perform interviews as needed with knowledgeable people as to the existing documents, plans, building histories, maintenance records, REAC scores, etc. of each property.
  • Establish a methodology that will sample common lobby areas and corridors.
  • Each area that is designed as part of Sector 504 or American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements will be inspected to assure the components are functioning per their purpose.  Note a regulatory compliance review is not required for these units or areas, just a functionality and EUL assessment.
  • Establish a sampling methodology for units that will include 10% of all units per property.  The sample will include at least 1 of each apartment size in each building type.  Units must be distributed so that a variety of conditions will be evaluated (top floor units, corner units, areas where weathering occurs, etc).  Section 504 units will be included so that they are also represented equitably in the sampling methodology including locations and bedroom sizes.
  • As part of the assessment, each individual component will receive an estimate of Excepted Useful Life (EUL)
  • As part of the assessment, each individual component will be provided with a replacement cost on an individual component and for a total of those components.  (Ex. per window and per window times all similar windows)
  • Identity all development components that will be part of the assessment. 
  • Upon completion of the inspections, a report will be provided to the Agency in narrative and spreadsheet forms that meets HUD and Agency requirements and will be in the both paper and electronic format per the (HUD) requirements.
  • Establish a plan to inspect 100% of site, all systems, paving and grading, building exteriors/envelope, finishes, program areas, offices, basements, utilities, laundry facilities, mechanical areas, sprinklers, emergency systems, security, crawl spaces, etc.
