Department Announces HIP Implementation Delay

In a June 17 email to HA Executive Directors, HUD General Deputy Assistant Secretary Dominique Blom announced a delay in onboarding agencies to the Housing Information Portal (HIP), the successor system to PIC. This email rescinds the HIP implementation timeline published in Notice PIH 2024-12 and discussed in a recent edition of the Advocate.

The email does not provide a revised timeline for the HIP transition, instead noting that “the schedule… will be revised in the coming weeks as HUD is not ready for the transition and critical dates will be extended.”

Blom also notes that HUD is considering delaying the compliance date for Sections 102 and 104 of the Housing Opportunity through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA), which is currently January 1, 2025. As a reminder, HAs cannot implement Sections 102 and 104 until they transition to HIP. In a recent meeting with Acting HUD Secretary Adrianne Todman, PHADA and the other industry groups urged the Department to delay this compliance date so that HUD, HAs, and software vendors have ample time to acclimate to the new HIP system.

Finally, the email notes that the planned closure of the Special Applications Center (SAC) will be delayed. HAs will not have to submit demolition/disposition applications by July 1, 2024. The Department will provide updated dates for the SAC closure once it finalizes the new HIP timeline.

PHADA will provide additional analysis of this notice in the next edition of the Advocate.
