The course includes a breakdown of the origins of NSPIRE, the differences between UPCS, HQS, and NSPIRE. This includes a breakdown of the new severity ratings, the new pass or fail ratings, and the applicability of the rules for HCV, PBV, HUD CPD Programs, and REAC agency inspections from Multifamily Section 8, Public Housing, and LIHTC.

The course reviews the procedures required to close out findings in REAC’s new online system after REAC Inspections, and the expectations of close out procedures. US Housing Consultants will discuss new procedures for REAC Appeals, consequences for non-compliance, and new oversight processes from both HUD and REAC. They will discuss the REAC NSPIRE scoring methodology; break down the formula used for scoring, and then explain how it works and show a number of examples and comparisons between the new scoring and the old system.

US Housing Consultants will review the NSPIRE standards, and then show how to understand the requirements and the underlying codes that much of these standards are based upon.
