H.R.3745: HUD Inspection Oversight Act of 2019


The HUD Inspection Oversight Act (H.R. 3745) aims to strengthen enforcement of the inspection process for project-based rental assistance housing (PBRA) under section 8 housing law. The bill would create higher physical condition standards for PBRA housing and provide the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with greater enforcement authority to tackle health and safety concerns. HUD would be required to work with tenants to develop public remediation plans and timetables if property owners fail to address issues identified during inspections. HUD could then impose various penalties, such as fines or termination of contracts if owners do not correct the problems. Additionally, HUD would be required to publish a quarterly report of all properties with unsatisfactory reviews to increase transparency.
