NEW! Consultation on HUD’s Draft Departmental Policy for Addressing Radon in the Environmental Review Process Notice

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is in the process of developing a departmentwide radon policy to fully   HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes that provide a healthy place to live and thrive. HUD’s FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan recognizes housing’s essential role in the health of residents and identifies minimizing residential radon exposure as one of the strategies for improving health outcomes for residents of HUD-assisted housing.

HUD recognizes that each Tribe has its own unique circumstances and that they have utilized a variety of actions to address radon. HUD welcomes discussion on those activities and comments on the potential impacts (positive and negative) of HUD’s radon policy on, whether the proposed strategies for considering radon are implementable, what are roadblocks to success, and any other concerns related to radon in Indian country that can inform and help develop a radon policy that can be successfully implemented under a variety of circumstances. HUD is specifically interested in:

  • What concerns do you have about implementing the proposed radon policy?
  • What specific guidance would help you successfully identify and mitigate radon?

Consultation session 1 is scheduled for Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 3:00 pm ET:  https://ems8.intellor.com/login/845425

Consultation session 2 is scheduled for Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 4:00 pm ET:  https://ems8.intellor.com/login/845426

The U.S. Department of Treasury (Treasury) has released updates to the frequently asked questions (FAQs) of the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) Final Rule, authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

This update includes a number of new and revised FAQs.

Specifically for Tribal governments, affordable housing projects are eligible uses of SLFRF funds if they would be eligible for funding under the Indian Housing Block Grant program, the Indian Community Development Block Grant program, or the Bureau of Indian Affairs Housing Improvement Program.

Alongside this guidance, Treasury is releasing an Affordable Housing How-To Guide, a simplified summary of SLFRF guidance on affordable housing and examples of how recipients can layer funds with federal resources.

Details for webinar briefings on the final rule FAQs, including one specifically on the topic of affordable housing development, will be forthcoming in the following weeks.

This notice provides updated information to Indian tribes, tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs), and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) on the reporting requirements for the Federal Financial Report (FFR) - Standard Form 425 (SF-425). This notice supersedes Program Guidance 2014-07 and 2015-04, as well as any conflicting guidance with respect to SF-425 forms in all, applicable program Notices and applicable program NOFOs.  

Effective Immediately - starting with the period ending 06/30/2022, for the most part, grantees will only submit one SF-425 per open grant at the end of the grantee’s program/fiscal year.  Exception: Grantees approved to invest IHBG formula program funds will continue to submit quarterly SF-425s on IHBG formula grants (55IT/IH) whether you are actively investing or not.  ROSS grants will continue to follow the current reporting schedule.  Please contact ROSS-PIH@hud.gov with any questions related to ROSS financial reporting.

IMPORTANT:  To the extent the terms and conditions of the Federal award (i.e., the Funding Approval/Agreement—Form HUD 52734-A or B, the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), or the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)) require a frequency of SF-425 submissions that conflicts with the provisions of Notice PIH 2022-15, ONAP intends to refrain from enforcing those conflicting terms and conditions of the Federal award SF-425 submission requirements if the grantee follows the requirements of Notice PIH 2022-15.

Dear Tribal Leader Letter - Tribal Housing and Related Infrastructure Interagency Task Force (THRIITF)

HUD is seeking elected or appointed officers or authorized designees of tribal governments to join the Tribal Housing and Related Infrastructure Interagency Task Force (THRIITF). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is the lead agency in the federal effort to develop a coordinated environmental review process for housing and housing-related infrastructure in Indian Country. Congress directed HUD to establish THRIITF to address and implement the working group recommendations to continue the review of related environmental laws and authorities to identify opportunities for greater efficiencies; explore whether environmental reviews could be expedited if agencies which fund similar types of projects developed aligned categorical exclusions; and identify specific regulatory and policy improvements. THRIITF will be addressing and implementing the recommendations of the 2015 Coordinated Environmental Review Process, which can be found at: https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/COORENVIRREVIEW.PDF.

Dear Tribal Leader Letter- Tribal Consultation for Housing Counselor Certification Requirements

In 2010, Section 106 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (Section 106) was amended by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd Frank Act) to require, in part, that any homeownership counseling or rental housing counseling required under, or provided in connection with, any HUD program must be provided only by organizations or counselors certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as competent to provide such counseling.

We believe that these statutory changes have implications for certain HUD Native American programs. HUD is committed to the government-to-government relationship between the Federal government and tribes and engaging tribal leaders through consultation on such matters. Accordingly, HUD is conducting tribal consultation to determine how to best implement the Section 106 statutory requirements as applied to the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program and the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program, and is soliciting Tribal feedback to determine how best to apply the housing counseling program and certification requirements in Section 106 to these programs.

HUD has determined that it will award the entire $100 million of ICDBG-CARES funds on a first-come, first-serve basis

On March 27, 2020, the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which included $100 million for the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG-CARES) program. Subsequently, HUD published the ICDBG-CARES Implementation Notice (Notice PIH 2020-11) providing instructions on how to apply for ICDBG-CARES funding. The Implementation Notice indicated that the first $80 million of funding would be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis with HUD reserving the right to distribute up to $20 million based on other award criteria.

The response to ICDBG-CARES funding announcement was overwhelming, demonstrating urgent need requiring expediency in response. As such, HUD has determined that it will award the entire $100 million of ICDBG-CARES funds on a first-come, first-serve basis. HUD is proceeding with reviewing and approving ICDBG-CARES applications in accordance with the Implementation Notice.

HUD will continue accepting applications. While we are still accepting applications, we have a universe of applications that if fundable would consume the full $100 million. Applicants are encouraged to thoroughly review the Implementation and Waiver Notices in their entirety to ensure that a complete application is sent to ICDBGCARES@hud.gov. HUD has worked to streamline the application process as much as possible, while ensuring that all ICDBG-CARES funds will be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19, as required under the CARES Act. The Implementation and Waiver Notices and ICDBG-CARES Implementation Training Slides can be found at: www.hud.gov/coronavirus and www.hud.gov/codetalk.
