Housing and Urban Development Multifamily Properties Eligible for Weatherization Assistance

On January 25, 2010, the Department of Energy (DOE) implemented a new rule 71-CFR-3847 for its Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Under the new rule, if a public housing, assisted multi-family or Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) building is identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and included on a list published by DOE, that building meets certain income eligibility and may meet other WAP requirements without the need for further evaluation or verification.

Final Rule on Amending Eligibility Provisions to Multifamily Buildings for the Weatherization Assistance Program
Weatherization Program Notice 10-15 is in effect since March 2, 2010.

HUD Data on Properties Eligible for Weatherization Assistance
HUD provides more detail on its lists of eligible properties (see above), criteria for state prioritization, and additional DOE requirements; March 5, 2010. More information about these data can be found on the HUD Recovery Act Web page. You can direct questions about the list via email to HUD Energy Action.

A minimum requirement for inclusion on these lists is that at least two-thirds of the residents of the building (50% for 2–4 unit buildings) must meet DOE's income eligibility requirement, which is currently set at 200% of the federal poverty level.

Note that a public housing, assisted housing, and LIHTC building that does not appear on the list using HUD records may still qualify for the WAP. Income eligibility can be made on an individual basis by the local WAP service provider that implements the Program based on information supplied by property owners and the families.

State Discretion and Authority

The rule expressly indicates that income qualified public housing, assisted housing, and LIHTC properties may be eligible recipients of WAP funds. The rule does not, however, require states or local WAP service providers to set aside WAP funds for these properties. The state and/or the local service provider retain the authority to set priorities for the use of WAP funds in their service areas. Funding for individual projects will be a function of state or local program priorities and funding availability. You can find WAP information and contacts in your state.
