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.

GPNA Software Tool

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

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.

  • 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 PIC data must be fully reviewed, edited, and accurate down to the building and unit level detail (before the assessment can be started)
  • The new rule has minimum GPNA Training and qualification requirements
  • The new HUD PNA tool requires using an approved cost index
