Section by Section Summary of the 2013 HOME Final Rule: Subpart L - Performance Reviews and Sanctions

§92.551 Corrective and Remedial Actions

§92.551(c)(1) is revised to add to the possible remedial actions available to HUD to impose on a PJ in order to correct, mitigate, or prevent performance deficiency. These additional remedial actions include:

  • Establishing procedures to ensure compliance with HOME requirements

  • Establishing a remedial action plan to make up a match contribution deficit (added to the existing requirement for requiring match contributions be made)

  • For a metropolitan city, forming a consortium with the urban county if the urban county is willing to implement the HOME program in the metropolitan city.

§92.551(c)(2) is amended to broaden HUD’s rights to take corrective action in regards to the payment process. The pre-2013 Rule gives HUD the right to change how it pays the PJ (changing from an advance payment system to a reimbursement system). This section is amended to give HUD the right to require submission of supporting documentation before payment is made and to determine that the PJ is high-risk and impose special conditions or restrictions on the next year’s allocation, in accordance with 24 CFR 85.12.
