The Office of Recap has created the attached “Overview of RAD CHAP Amendments” guide to assist PHAs who wish to make changes to their initial RAD CHAP award. The purpose of the guide is to provide an overview of the CHAP amendment process, a comprehensive listing of reasons CHAPs might be amended, including permitted changes to contract rents, updating utility allowances, and modifying the units that will be converted. It also provides additional clarity regarding the information the PHA must include in their amendment request in order for the amendment to be processed. HUD’s intent in producing this document is to ensure that PHAs are fully aware of the options available to them and to reduce the overall number of instances in which a CHAP may need to be amended.
All CHAP amendment requests must be submitted via email to your assigned RAD Transaction Manager 60 days prior to your Financing Plan submission. Waiting to submit a CHAP amendment request after this time may result in significant processing delays.
We encourage you to continue to work closely with your assigned RAD Transaction Manager on any changes to the proposed conversion.
