Owners of eligible HUD-assisted multifamily housing. Eligible housing must meet the following criteria: a. Be assisted or financed through any of the following programs: (1) Section 202 Direct Loan, (2) Project-based Section 8 (including Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation), or (3) Section 221(d)(3) below-market interest rate and Section 236 (insured or assisted). b. Have frail or at-risk elderly residents and/or non-elderly residents with disabilities who together total at least 25 percent of the building’s residents. (For example, if a property has 52 total residents, at least 13 residents must be frail, at-risk, or non-elderly people with disabilities.) c. Were designed or designated for the elderly or persons with disabilities and continue to operate as such. This includes any building within a mixed-use development that was designed for occupancy by elderly persons or persons with disabilities at its inception and continues to operate as such, or consistent with title VI, subtitle D of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-550). If not so designed, a property in which the owner gives preferences in tenant selection (with HUD approval) to eligible elderly persons or nonelderly persons with disabilities for all units in that property. d. If FHA insured or financed with a Section 202 Direct Loan, are current in mortgage payments or are current under a workout agreement. e. Meet HUD’s Uniform Physical Conditions Standards (codified in 24 CFR part 5, subpart G), based on the most recent physical inspection report and responses thereto, as evidenced by a score of 60 or better on the last physical inspection or by an approved plan for properties scoring less than 60. f. Are in compliance with their regulatory agreement, Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contract, and any other outstanding HUD grant or contract document. g. Have no available project funds (i.e., Section 8 operating funds, residual receipts, or excess income) that could pay for a Service Coordinator. (“Available funds” are those that require HUD approval for their use and are not needed to meet critical property needs.) Field office staff will make this determination based on financial records maintained by the Department and information provided by the applicant in the grant application. 3. If your eligibility status changes during the course of the grant term, making you ineligible to receive a grant (e.g., due to prepayment of mortgage, sale of property, or opting out of a Section 8 HAP contract), HUD will terminate your grant.
