FY 2023 Capital Fund at Risk/Receivership/Substandard/Troubled Program

Program Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity is to provide funds for costs associated with public housing asset improvement to Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) that are either in receivership, designated troubled or substandard, or otherwise at-risk. For this NOFO, asset improvement means capital improvements. Use of funding provided under this NOFO is focused on improving public housing asset management project (AMP) performance in two core areas:

  • Physical Condition: Improve the physical condition of public housing. Successful applicants must demonstrate a comprehensive strategy on how the funds will provide residents access to safe, accessible, and decent public housing through improved public housing assets.
  • Management: Increase occupancy and reduce long-term vacancies through capital investment and affirmative marketing.

Applicants may submit a maximum of one application with only one AMP, which may include multiple properties or scattered sites. The application must adhere to the application submission requirements in this NOFO, including the required narrative demonstrating how use of the funding at the identified AMP will improve the targeted AMP and all additional narratives listed in Section IV.B. Grantees must submit obligation documents (signed contracts) and expenditure documentation (e.g., invoices) to the local field office. The field office will review the documentation to ensure compliance with the conditions of the award and approve the payment requests through HUD's electronic Line of Credit Control System (eLOCCS). To measure the effectiveness of funding, HUD will assess physical inspection scores and occupancy data at the designated AMP.

Available Funds: Funding of approximately $12,500,000 is available through this NOFO. Additional funds may become available for award under this NOFO consistent with Section VI.A.2.e., Adjustments to Funding. Use of these funds is subject to statutory constraints. All awards are subject to the funding restrictions contained in this NOFO.
