HUD has announced that PHAs must use HUD’s Operating Fund (OpFund) Web Portal to access the CY 2019 Excel Tools for Forms HUD-57223 and HUD-52722 to determine PHA operating subsidies. These forms will only be made available to PHAs on the OpFund Web Portal, the department’s evolving web-based platform. HUD publicly released the Portal’s first PHA driven module – the PHA Form 52723/52722 Reporting Module – last year. The module allows PHAs, including PHA fee accountants and IT providers, access to their data to:
- Review and download historical HUD-52723 (3 years) and HUD-52722 (2 years)
- Print paper versions of final the HUD-52723 and HUD-52722
- Review and download the authority’s CY 2019 Pre-Pop data
- Work with data provided visually that can be filtered and downloaded and manipulated
HUD will publish the CY 2019 Excel Tools for the Forms HUD-57223 and HUD-52722 on or before March 19, 2019 and PHAs must submit their Tools to their Field Office by April 9, 2019. If you don’t have access to the OpFund Web Portal, contact your Authority’s WASS coordinator. Your WASS coordinator can provide you and your staff with access. Once in the Portal, users must create and validate their user profile in order to navigate the Portal. You can find the user profile guide and WASS role assignment guide at the URL: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/public_indian_housing/programs/ph/am/webportal
