BROADCAST EMAIL – Regulatory Update

On April 23, 2021, Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge announced that on June 1, 2021, HUD will resume Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspections. The Secretary also issued a letter to all Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and Multifamily property owners/agents (POAs) regarding the importance of HUD physical inspections for ensuring the whole health and well-being of the households they serve.

HUD’s REAC will notify PHAs and POAs of its detailed plans for increasing inspections of both Public Housing and Multifamily properties.
