This guidance will help grantees prepare and complete the closeout process.
Before any grantee begins the closeout process, it should consider the follow questions:
- Are virtually all funds drawn from the Line of Credit?
- Have all projects that have any Line of Credit Funds in them met a National Objective? (Typically this means an eligible person or family is living in the unit or house)
- Has an amount equal to at least 25% of the original grant been spent on housing individuals at or below 50% of the Area Medium Income?
- Do all NSP properties have mechanisms in place (such as liens) to ensure continued affordability?
- Is DRGR in order and does it tell a complete and accurate story?
And if you have a Land Bank:
- Do you have a Land Bank Plan to obligate each Land Bank property for a specific, eligible redevelopment that meets NSP requirements within 10 Years?
