SUBJECT: Additional Administrative Fees for HUD-VASH 

1. PURPOSE
This notice describes the process for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and their software vendors to transition from the Inventory Management System/Public and Indian Housing (PIH) Information Center (IMS/PIC) to the Housing Information Portal (HIP).

With this notice, HUD is announcing that PHAs will no longer be able to access IMS/PIC as of a “Transition Date” anticipated to be in late Summer 2024. Following the Transition Date, PHAs should expect a “Transition Period” before the HIP system will be available for their use. HUD
anticipates that HIP's “Opening Date” will be in Fall 2024.

This notice provides details on the transition process, including actions that PHAs must take prior to the Transition Date, during the Transition Period, and following the HIP Opening Date, to support the orderly shift to HIP and sunset of IMS/PIC as the PIH system of record. The HIP system will be the official system of record that HUD will use to determine Public Housing Capital Fund and Operating Fund grant amounts and to assess statutory and regulatory compliance in the Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher, and Mod Rehab programs. 

2. APPLICABILITY

This notice applies to Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) administering the Low-Rent Public Housing (PH) program; Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher programs (HCV), including TenantBased Vouchers, Project-Based Vouchers (PBVs), and Homeownership Vouchers; and the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab) program. It applies to PHAs that participate in the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration and non-MTW PHAs.

This notice does not apply to Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) that use the Tribal HUD-VASH module in HIP. HUD's Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) will issue a separate notice about reporting in this module.
