NEW! September 18, 2023. The GRRP applications have been updated with the changes listed below. The updated Elements application is now available.
- Updated the “program assisted under” dropdown to present a more streamlined set of choices (Section 8 PBRA, Section 202, Section 811, Section 236, Other)
- Fixed an issue where applicants who entered a Zip Code with a leading zero received an error message and were unable to input their Zip code.
- Changed the size of the tooltip on the Census Tract look up, so applicants can see the full tool tip and access the link to the site to look up the correct Zip Code.
- Fixed an issue where Census Tracts with a leading zero were unable to be entered.
- Fixed leading zero errors in iREMs and Assistance Contract # cells (we have not received reports of errors for these yet, this change is proactive).
- Fixed an issue where applicants were unable to enter a HEROs submitter name because formatting was set to dates only.
*GRRP Elements application tools are part of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) collection under OMB control number 2502-0624. Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 45 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Comments regarding the accuracy of this burden estimate and any suggestions for reducing this burden can be sent to the Reports Management Officer, REE, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th St SW, Room 4176, Washington, DC 20410-5000. When providing comments, please refer to OMB Approval No. 2502-0624. This information is required to obtain benefits. HUD may not collect this information, and you are not required to complete this form, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. This information is being collected under Title III of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, H.R. 5376 (IRA), section 30002 titled “Improving Energy Efficiency or Water Efficiency or Climate Resilience of Affordable Housing,” authorizes the Green and Resilient Retrofit Program (GRRP). The program provides grants or loans for building retrofits to HUD-assisted multifamily projects with utility efficiency or climate resilience needs. The Elements cohort of the program targets properties currently undergoing a recapitalization or other transaction with HUD and offers owners a menu of green and resilient building design features for reimbursement. This information collection is used to determine eligibility of HUD-assisted multifamily properties for participation in the GRRP Elements program and the terms on which participation should occur. The purpose of the program is to fund projects that improve energy or water efficiency, enhance indoor air quality or sustainability, implement the use of zero-emission electricity generation, low-emission building materials or processes, energy storage, or building electrification strategies, or address climate resilience, of an eligible property. While no assurances of confidentiality are pledged to respondents, HUD generally discloses this data only in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
