January 04, 2023 | 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM EST



HUD's Office of HIV/AIDS Housing (OHH) sponsored a webinar explaining the requirements included in Notice CPD-22-15: Carbon Monoxide Alarms or Detectors in Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA)-Assisted Housing (issued December 8, 2022). This webinar provided information about how this requirement applies to the HOPWA-eligible activities listed above and answer several important questions related to carbon monoxide detectors/alarms in HOPWA housing.

Before viewing the webinar, HOPWA grantees and project sponsors are encouraged to review Notice CPD-22-15. Under the new statutory requirement, which takes effect on December 27, 2022, grantees are responsible for ensuring each dwelling unit assisted under the HOPWA program contains installed carbon monoxide alarms or detectors that meet or exceed the standards described in chapters 9 and 11 of the 2018 publication of the 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)).
