Overview and Purpose:
The March 2013 Federal Register Notice
requires that grantees under P.L. 113-2 undertaking new construction or substantial rehabilitation of housing unit activities meet a green building certification standard. HUD has created a new performance measure in DRGR to allow grantees to report the implementation of this requirement. Grantees must now select the “# of Substantially Rehabilitated Units” for all applicable activities. All units reported as being substantially rehabilitated (in addition to new construction units reported in the system) must comply with the green building certification standard requirement.
Action Item: For all grantees receiving funds under the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (P.L. 113-2), select the “# of Substantially Rehabilitated Units” performance measure in the DRGR Action Plan and enter the projected number of units for each applicable activity.
Instructions for how to report on this performance measure are contained in the DRGR Guidance on Reporting Green Substantial Rehabilitation Units.
