REAC Inspections. HUD requires these physical inspections to ensure families have housing that
is decent, safe, sanitary and in good repair. The breadth of these inspections, the complexities of
the scoring criteria and some inconsistencies with inspectors can make it difficult for managers
and owners to stay in compliance.
Inspection Score reports can only be accessed in PASS on the HUD Secure System (also known
as WASS - Web Access Secure System). HUD monitors those scores for ongoing compliance
and asset management oversight.
REAC Scores are also reported when submitting for previous participation approval (via a
HUD 2530). A low REAC Inspection score can result in a Flag, which may prevent an owner
or management agent from being approved to participate in future HUD programs.
The Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV) was put in place by HUD to reduce errors and
streamline income verification at affordable housing communities that have HUD subsidies and
HUD insured loans. Its use became mandatory in 2010.
EIV obtains monthly Social Security (SS) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits data
from the Social Security Administration (SSA), and monthly employer new hires (W-4), quarterly
wage and quarterly unemployment data. This information is reviewed as part of the initial
tenant certification process, at annual re-certification and at other times as regulated by HUD
To insure security and maintain privacy, access to the EIV System is subject to significant
