HUD Exchange has posted an article this week on the CPD HOTMA Guidance. As you know, the announcement on extending the HOTMA Final Rule’s compliance date to January 1, 2025, significantly impacts Community Planning and Development (CPD) programs. This extension affects programs under HUD’s 24 CFR Part 5 income regulations.

Key Updates for CPD Grantees

  1. Transition Period: HUD acknowledges the complexities of implementing the HOTMA final rule. Due to the pending provision of detailed guidance and necessary software updates, CPD grantees may struggle to comply with the HOTMA final rule requirements immediately.
  2. Flexible Compliance Date: Recognizing these operational challenges, CPD grantees can set their own compliance dates within a specified window. This period ranges from as early as January 1, 2024, to no later than January 1, 2025.
  3. Continued Use of Prior Regulations: Until their chosen compliance date, CPD grantees may continue to implement the requirements of their program’s previous regulations, as well as regulations outlined in 24 CFR 5.603, 5.609, 5.611, and 5.617, as applicable.
