HUD Issues NSPIRE National Standards for Comment – NAHRO provides in depth analysis 

HUD recently published its Request for Comments: National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) and Associated Protocols in the Federal Register. The request for public comment is focused specifically on the inspection standards associated with the new NSPIRE inspection protocol. HUD informed NAHRO that the Department will begin implementing NSPIRE for public housing in April 2023. NSPIRE aims to create a unified assessment of housing quality through inspections across multiple HUD programs. 

Comments are due Aug. 1 and NSPIRE will apply to the Public Housing program, Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) units, Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) units, and Project-Based Voucher (PBV) programs. Certain HUD Community Planning and Development (CPD) programs will be required to adopt these standards. These programs include the HOME Program, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program, and Continuum of Care (CoC). More resources on NSPIRE below:
