Register Today: Carbon Monoxide Alarms or Detectors in HOPWA-Assisted Housing: Notice CPD-22-15: Office Hour – March 15, 2023 – 3:30 PM EDT

March 07, 2023 Print ShareThis

HUD's Office of HIV/AIDS Housing (OHH) is sponsoring a follow-up office hour session regarding Notice CPD-22-15: Carbon Monoxide Alarms or Detectors in Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA)-Assisted Housing (released December 8, 2022). This office hour session will review Notice CPD-22-15, answer some common questions, detail when CO detection requirements apply to Permanent Housing Placement, and review technical assistance materials to assist with operationalizing this requirement.

Under this new statutory requirement, which took effect on December 27, 2022, grantees are responsible for ensuring each dwelling unit assisted under the HOPWA program contains installed carbon monoxide (CO) alarms or detectors that meet or exceed the standards described in Chapters 9 and 11 of the 2018 International Fire Code, as published by the International Code Council.

HOPWA grantees and project sponsors must ensure CO alarms or detectors are installed as required in all HOPWA-assisted units. This includes units assisted with acquisition, rehabilitation, conversion, lease, and repair of facilities to provide housing and services (24 CFR 574.300(b)(3)); new construction (24 CFR 574.300(b)(4)); project or tenant-based rental assistance (24 CFR 574.300(b)(5)); short-term rent, mortgage, and utility payments (24 CFR 574.300(b)(6)); permanent housing placement (24 CFR 574.300(b)(7)); and operating costs (24 CFR 574.300(b)(8)).

Before this webinar begins, HOPWA programs are encouraged to review Notice CPD-22-15 and the Notice CPD-22-15: Carbon Monoxide Alarms or Detectors in HOPWA-Assisted Housing Webinar that was held on January 11, 2023.
