For properties that are identified as unsuitable, there is a 20-day holding period from the date of the listing to allow homeless service providers the opportunity to appeal HUD's unsuitable determination.
Organizations may submit appeal packages using one of the following three options:
HUD will immediately contact the landholding agency regarding the appeal request and direct the agency to refrain from initiating disposal procedures until HUD has completed its reconsideration of its unsuitability determination and request additional information about the property.
HUD will act on all appeals within 30 days of receipt of the landholding agency's response and will notify the representative of the homeless and the landholding agency in writing of its decision.
If HUD determines that the property is suitable as a result of the appeal review, HUD will request the landholding agency's determination of availability in accordance with §581.7(a). Upon receipt of the landholding agency’s availability, HUD will post the determination on the HUD Exchange. If the determination of unsuitability stands, HUD will inform the representative of the homeless of its decision.
