NSPIRE Demonstration Approval of Information Collection Released

On May 23, HUD will release a Notice of Emergency Approval of an Information Collection on the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) Demonstration in the Federal Register. The Notice is related to HUD’s new NSPIRE Demonstration, which will replace UPCS for agencies that opt to participate in the demonstration, however the notice does not detail the demonstration itself. More information on the actual demonstration will be forthcoming.

HUD’s Emergency Approval of an Information Collection lists the information that PHAs participating in the demonstration will be required to submit to HUD. This includes: an annual self-inspection report or work order receipts, a property profile, copies of building system certificates, local code violations over the rolling calendar year, and participation in feedback sessions.

Comments on the Notice are due 14 days after the publication of the Notice in the Federal Register.
