REAC Inspections Will Resume
HUD will resume Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspections of HUD properties and units under strict safety protocols during the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. REAC intends to resume inspections on or around Monday, October 5, 2020, with the required 14-day notification period to begin on or around Monday, September 21, 2020. Please note that Minnesota Housing is continuing to postpone physical inspections and site visits until further notice.
To keep the residents and staff of HUD properties safe during the inspection process, REAC will prioritize inspections in states and localities based on the latest COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University and health risk scoring methodology from the Harvard Global Health Institute. REAC will provide a listing on its website of low-risk counties 45 days prior to the start of physical inspections. At the end of the 45-day period, REAC will provide a 14-day notification to priority properties in that county to inform families that an inspection will take place.
