RAD Q&A

This week via “RADBlast!” HUD released new guidance on the closing process for units converted to the rental assistance demonstration (RAD) program. The guidance is a result of feedback HUD received earlier this year.

The first change involves effective dates for HAP contracts following completion of the closing process. Effective immediately, project owners may now select the effective date of the HAP contract as the first day of either of the two months following the completed closing. For example, if the project closes on October 20, 2017, the HAP contract can be effective on either November 1, 2017 or December 1, 2017. HUD expects that the change will allow PHAs and project owners to better prepare for funding in the initial year and also allow for more time and flexibility to complete administrative functions such as executing new tenant leases.
