The National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), Project-Based Voucher (PBV) and Public Housing is in effect. The rule is applicable to all PHAs, including PHAs participating in the Moving to Work (MTW) program. The final NSPIRE Standards, including an updated list of Life-Threatening conditions (LT) under the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA), contain information about how each standard applies to the HCV and PBV programs and whether the condition is a pass or fail for occupancy.

We all have vital roles to ensure HUD residents live in safe homes. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with HUD with the NSPIRE for Housing Choice Voucher program. Our continued diligence and partnership will strengthen our work to improve the lives of the families we serve each day.
