The Green Physical Needs Assessment (GPNA) training course is designed to educate PHAs and home inspectors on using the GPNA tool to measure the impact of funding and develop management practices to implement capital towards the most effective energy efficiency solutions. Completion of this training is highly recommended for home inspectors, and upon completing our training course you will receive instructions on how to obtain a list of the HUD Facilities in your area.

  

What is the new Green Physical Needs Assessment (GPNA) Rule?

Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) receive over $2 billion each year to develop and modernize public housing. But until this point, there was no way to measure the effectiveness of these funds, especially with energy efficiency. Because of this, HUD has released a Green Physical Needs Assessment (GPNA) tool to assess the life cycle needs of public housing units and buildings. This tool will enable HUD and PHAs to measure the impact of funding and develop management practices to implement capital towards the most effective energy efficiency solutions.

  

Can I use my own staff to do the GPNA or must I contract it out? If I can do it myself, what are the qualifications for the person performing the GPNA?

Yes, you can use your own staff if they collectively meet the qualifications as defined in the rule, including having at least one team member with 5 years experience performing physical property inspections and cost estimating; demonstrated knowledge of applicable building standards and codes; demonstrated knowledge of energy efficiency practices; and a working knowledge of commonly used computer technology (MS Excel, Office, etc.). PHAs do need to be aware that if they are planning to use this PNA to support future transactions such as financing, the terms of that transaction may require a third party to perform the PNA. Some PHAs may also find it more objective to obtain a third party opinion as to the condition of its property.

 

What are the HUD Obligations?

PNA Submissions to HUD must be done through the new PNA tool
PHAs will have one year to submit PNAs and energy audits using the new tool
Previous HUD requirements exempted small PHAs. All PHAs must now use the new tool
HUD data must be fully reviewed, edited, and accurate down to the building and unit level detail (before the assessment can be started)
The new HUD PNA tool requires using an approved cost index

What is the New Green PNA Rule?
Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) receive over $2 billion each year to develop and modernize public housing. But until this point, there was no way to measure the effectiveness of these funds, especially with energy efficiency.

 

Because of this, HUD has released a Green Physical Needs Assessment (GPNA) tool to assess the life cycle needs of public housing units and buildings.

This tool will enable HUD and PHAs to measure the impact of funding and develop management practices to implement capital towards the most effective energy efficiency solutions. It is important that PHAs receive the proper GPNA training to be able to fulfill their HUD obligations.

There are 3,500 housing authorities within the US with about 3.5 million single units. All of these units MUST be inspected within a year from 7/1/2013 when the new law goes into effect.

This is a major market for home inspectors. Upon completing our training course you receive a list of HUD facilities who will be in need of certified GPNA inspectors. The project is set to begin within 4 months of this law going into effect as there are not enough inspectors trained to conduct these inspections.

A typical inspection will consist of 800 – 5,000 units and in most cases you will only have to actually inspect 10% if all units are built the same But you get paid for 100% of units. Average time per inspection is 20 minutes per unit. Typical charge is $55 - $75 per unit. And the inspection has to be repeated again in 5 years.


With the growing number of HUD properties this type of inspection could triple your yearly revenue for the rest of your life.
