Revised RAD Notice…

Given the labyrinth of clearing a HUD—or really any federal government—notice within the agency and OMB, it’s not unexpected that projected release dates tend to slip beyond reliable prediction. Nonetheless, HUD now anticipates the target release window for RADRev4 to be at the end of July into early August.

When published in the Federal Register, HUD will announce the posting via a RADBlast! It’s then planning to conduct webinars and other forums for general review. The Collaborative will augment those forums with deeper dives into RADRev4 for interested parties.

A timely and good in-depth opportunity to explore features of RADRev4 directly with Recap Office and other HUD senior staff will be the Collaborative’s Southeast Regional Convening in early September in Greensboro, NC—as below.


RAD Collaborative Southeast Regional Convening

Greensboro, NC—September 11-12, 2019


Hold the Date—Registration to Open Week of 7/15. Join our Fall 2019 Southeast Regional Convening in Greensboro, September 11-12. It will be an early chance to learn about HUD’s latest RAD notice revisions (RADRev4) directly from the Recap Office and other top HUD officials—and the latest RAD practices and tips from PHAs at all stages of RAD conversions.

Our Agenda: Extensively engage with:
  • Our local host—the Greensboro Housing Authority—an early RAD adopter now completing the conversion of its entire public housing portfolio to the Section 8 platform—along with other PHAs at all stages of RAD conversions.
  • HUD’s Tom Davis and Greg Byrne/Recap Office and Jane Hornstein, Director/Special Application Center (aka Section 18 shop) will orient us to RADRev4 and how to best tap Section 18 in portfolio repositioning efforts and deeper-needs projects.
  • Relocation partners with significant RAD and Section 18-related relocation experience discussing how to best plan and carry-out temporary relocation efforts.
  • Both PHAs with substantial RAD and Section 18 experience and those seeking to augment their capacity discussing what’s available and what’s needed.
  • Industry partners sharing insights on everything from smart capital needs assessment approaches, tapping new state resources and supports for self-developing PHAs, to taking advantage of low-interest FHA financing, new LIHTC flexibilities and RAD+ opportunities.   
Who Should Attend: PHAs staff and board members, developer partners, lenders/investors, property & asset managers, housing officials, legal counsel, multifamily owners/developers and other transactional providers. Whether working on a current, next or potential first RAD transaction and/or comprehensive redevelopment initiative, there will be plenty of experience and discussion to tap into.
