Using HUD's UPCS Inspection Protocol on HOME & Tax Credit Properties. Applying HUD's standards to Meet Tax Credit and HOME Requirements.

Effective UPCS Compliance Inspections for HOME & LIHTC Properties | Webinar with Scott Precourt and Amanda Gross

The IRS requires that Tax Credit monitoring agencies use the UPCS Inspection Protocol to monitor the physical standards of LIHTC and HOME properties. Using HUD’s inspection protocol for tax credit properties is more than just doing a REAC Inspection. There are subtle differences between doing a REAC Inspection and doing a UPCS Compliance inspection. In this one-day online course, we’ll cover what Tax Credit professionals need to know to perform effective compliance inspections.

The UPCS Inspection Protocol for LIHTC and HOME

As part of REAC Inspections, HUD dictates rules of behavior and conduct for their inspectors. Many of those rules are about handling issues with the REAC scoring process, but with LIHTC compliance inspections, scoring is not a consideration. The IRS provides instructions in the 8823 Audit Guide which states that LIHTC agencies are to use the UPCS Protocol, but do not have to apply the HUD operational rules.


Learn How to Perform UPCS Inspections

Scott Precourt has developed an online training workshop that takes you through the protocol and shows attendees how to understand the requirements and perform effective inspections.

Scott will be joined by Amanda Lee Gross to review the inspection requirements and how they fit with Tax Credit and HOME properties.

This is what we cover during this vital online workshop:

  • Learn how to properly categorize deficiencies
  • How to assign site-related issues to 8823s
  • How to specify UPCS Severity Standards
  • What are Life-Threatening 24-Hour Issues
