HUD Hosts Conference call on Wednesday

U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD): Retrospective Review - Improving the Previous Participation Reviews of Prospective Multifamily Housing and Healthcare Program Participants

HUD has alerted AHCA/NCAL that 80 FR 54579 was published in the Federal Register yesterday announcing that it will hold a conference call to discuss the department's previous participation review process and solicit feedback on how that process can be improved. Since some AHCA/NCAL members either are involved or may become involved in skilled nursing or assisted living facilities financed with HUD/FHA-insured financing, we wanted to ensure everyone has this information.

Individuals who plan to participate in the call must register here by next Tuesday, September 15. Conference call information will be provided to meeting attendees via e-mail after they register.

Details for the conference call:

Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Time: 11:30 AM - 1 PM Eastern Time


The proposed rule FR-5850-P-01 Retrospective Review - Improving the Previous Participation Reviews of Prospective Multifamily Housing and Healthcare Program Participants is available here . According to the HUD summary, this proposed rule would "revise HUD's regulations for reviewing the previous participation in federal programs of certain participants seeking to take part in multifamily housing and healthcare programs administered by HUD's Office of Housing. Specifically, the proposed rule would clarify and simplify the process by which HUD reviews the previous participation of participants that have decision-making authority over their projects as one component of HUD's responsibility to assess financial and operational risk to the projects in these programs. The proposed rule would clarify which individuals and entities will be reviewed, HUD's purpose in conducting such review, and describe the review to be undertaken. By targeting more closely the individuals and actions that would be subject to prior participation review, HUD not only brings greater certainty and clarity to the process but provides HUD with flexibility as to the necessary previous participation review for entities and individuals that is not possible in a one-size fits all approach. Through this rule, HUD proposes to replace the current previous participation regulations in their entirety."

If you have any questions relating to this call or have any comments/concerns you would like AHCA/NCAL to share on the proposed rule, please contact Dana Halvorson, AHCA Senior Director of Not for Profit and Constituent Services, and Meg LaPorte, NCAL Senior Director of Assisted Living Policy. Comments on the proposed rule are due to HUD by Friday, October 9, 2015.
