HUD requires a copy of the IRS letter your organization received that granted your agency 501(c) status and identifies your organization as a proper recipient of tax exempt, charitable contributions. The IRS letter should also contain a designation of your official taxpayer identification number. HUD requires a copy of the letter because many entities that seem to have a charitable purpose are not officially recognized by the IRS as a 501(c) entity.
