Depends. If it is a newly reported property where the landholding agency notified HUD that there is currently some existing federal need, the property is suitable and unavailable. However, the agency must notify HUD when there is no federal need and HUD will repost the property as suitable and available. Homeless service providers will have 30 days from the date posted on the HUD Exchange to contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of their interest.
If it is a previously reported property where the landholding agency initially notified HUD that there was no existing federal need and that property went through the 30-day holding period. However, no homeless service providers express an interest to HHS or homeless service providers expressed interest but HHS did not convey the property and the agency moved forward with the disposal process. Landholding agencies may choose to maintain the property as suitable and unavailable until it completes the disposal action. In some cases, agencies will notify HUD that the property is available again for homeless service providers. In such cases, HUD will repost the property as suitable and available with a 30-day holding period from the date posted on the HUD Exchange to allow homeless service providers the opportunity to contact HHS to express interest.
