HUD is reforming REAC Inspections, updating the inspection protocol to a new set of standards and rules called NSPIRE. The new standards are focused on identifying hazardous conditions with a focus on living conditions in units. Additionally, NSPIRE will add new design requirements, which may require owners to invest in upgrades and new features. Starting in October of 2023, HUD will begin implementing the NSPIRE standards, and in this session, we'll discuss what owners and management agents need to do to prepare for the coming changes.
The standards for NSPIRE are clearer and more direct than the current REAC requirements - UPCS. We'll review some of the most significant changes from the current protocol to the new NSPIRE standards. We'll break down the requirements including photos of examples and references to the underlying code requirements. The session will also review the new scoring method used on NSPIRE inspections, which is more streamlined and easy to understand, but also carries significant penalties and risks for properties that fall to maintain everyday.
In this session, he will discuss:
- New NSPIRE Scoring Methodology
- A Crosswalk Review of Changes from UPCS to NSPIRE
- Practical Examples of Differences in Inspection Standards and Methods
- New Design Requirement Standards
- How to Integrate NSPIRE into Internal Self-Inspections
- Impact of NSPIRE Changes on HOME, LIHTC, and other Programs
- All Programs that are currently subject to an inspection based on REAC standards
