HOME Monitoring of Units
Monitoring enables Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) to assess HOME Program performance and ensure that all HOME funds are spent in accordance with the laws and regulations governing the HOME Program.
At a minimum, active and ongoing monitoring is critical to ensuring compliance by a PJ whether the PJ is implementing its HOME-funded activities with its own staff exclusively or utilizing outside subrecipients, state recipients, developers, and/or contractors to do so.
Regulations require that the performance of each contractor and subrecipient receiving HOME funds must be reviewed by PJs. In addition, PJs must also monitor projects throughout the affordability period for applicable HOME compliance area and conduct additional oversight of rental projects by analyzing the projects for financial stability, management capacity and other long-term viability issues.
The three primary goals of monitoring are to:
- Ensure production and accountability
- Ensure compliance with HOME and other Federal requirements
- Evaluate organizational and project performance as well as project viability (financial health, management capacity, etc)
Periodically, documents and forms are required for monitoring and may be downloaded from HOME Documents and Forms. Information such as Utility Allowances and Home Quality Standard requirements may also be downloaded as well.
