LSHR Toolkit: Prepare

Prepare to Administer or Own a PBA Project

Owners and administrators must create and maintain records to document compliance. Use the tools here as a guide through the process.

Check for Exemptions: Some properties and situations create exemptions to various parts of the rules for the property or a repair project.

Tool Name Description
LSHR Screening on Exemption or Limited Exemption Determines if all assisted units are partially or fully exempt. Complete and retain in records.

Unless the unit is exempt, the rules for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) apply to assisted units occupied by children under the age of 6 years old. The basic approach is to assure units are inspected, paint is properly maintained, and to respond if a child has an EBLL. Being familiar with the rules and keeping good records of all measures from prior to and during occupancy is essential. These tools will help guide and document the process.
