Secretary Carson announced Friday, August 7, 2020, via HUD No 20-119, that REAC will start inspections on October 5th with the required 14-day notice arriving on or about September 21, 2020.
To ensure residents and staff of HUD properties are kept safe during the inspection process, REAC will prioritize inspections in states and localities based on the latest COVID-19 data. To that end, REAC has developed a heat map that categorizes states and localities into four risk categories.
- Low Risk – Green
- Moderately Low Risk – Yellow
- Moderately High Risk – Orange
- High Risk – Red
REAC will provide a listing on its website of low-risk counties 45 days prior to the start of the physical inspections (county by county risk rating accessible by clicking on REAC’s heat map). At the end of the 45-day period, REAC will notify each property 14 days prior to the actual scheduled inspection.
Again, as we learn more you will be the first to know!
