Monitoring and Technical Assistance

HUD reviews the performance of recipients to determine whether they:

HUD monitoring consists of on-site review and off-site (or remote) review of records, reports, and audits. On-site reviews are conducted at the grant recipients' offices and may include visits to housing sites. Grant recipients may be requested to provide additional information to the Area ONAP after completion of the on-site visit and before completion of HUD's review. Unusual situations aside, the Area ONAP will provide written notice and details of the monitoring visit at least 30 days in advance. A remote review consists of a thorough review of all information available in the Area ONAP's files concerning a grant recipient. The Area ONAP may request submission of information from the grant recipient to supplement information available in HUD's records prior to the completion of the review.

Upon completion of either type of review, a draft report will be provided to the grant recipient for comment, per 24 CFR § 1000.528. Once the comment period has expired, HUD will issue a final report that addresses any comments received.

Guide to Self-Monitoring

Self-Monitoring Guidebook (09/2018)
Developed by ONAP to assist Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) recipients meet their self-monitoring responsibilities under NAHASDA. This Guidebook is presented in chapters which address various organizational components of a recipients operation. While the Guidebook is developed for the IHBG program, it can be useful to any grant recipient in establishing a self-monitoring program.

Monitoring Plans for Recipients

ONAP provides IHBG recipients with sample monitoring plans that they may use when conducting self-monitoring, as required under NAHASDA. Use of these sample monitoring plans is optional; however, the plans are designed to provide tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHE) with an effective, structured approach to evaluate performance and determine compliance with program requirements. The sample monitoring plans can also be used to conduct similar reviews of the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG), Rural Housing and Economic Development/Rural Innovation Fund (RHED/RIF), and Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) programs. The plans are “living” documents and may change over time. Always use the plans available at this location. See Program Guidance 2012-03 for more information.
