NSPIRE Demonstration Extended Through April 2023
On September 28, 2021, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a Federal Register notice, Notice of Continuation of Demonstration To Assess the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate and Associated Protocols (86 FR 53570), which extends the NSPIRE Demonstration (84 FR 43536) through April 30, 2023.
This extension comes as HUD, public housing agencies (PHAs), and property owners and agents (POAs) restart inspections and resume operations that had been halted during the COVID pandemic. The extension will allow time for HUD to test the standards in the field, refine inspection protocols, and establish business processes and supporting technology.
While HUD is extending the duration of the Demonstration, all other requirements highlighted in August 21, 2019, notice will continue to apply. Additionally, even though HUD has achieved its goal of 4,500 volunteer properties for the Demonstration, HUD has opened a waitlist in the event additional spots become available.
