Event Details

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.

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 rule has minimum GPNA Training and qualification requirements
  • The new HUD PNA tool requires using an approved cost index


What You'll Learn

Our two day GPNA training prepares participants to conduct assessments using the new Green PNA tool.

The course covers all the requirements needed in order to conduct a proper GPNA, including: Identifying and prioritizing work to be performed using Capital Funds, making long-term strategic decisions regarding housing portfolios, and evaluating decisions on the developmental level.

Trainees will learn how to use the GPNA tool to prepare for an assessment, conduct a PNA, review and revise their data. Inspectors who take this course will be able to identify the four main Needs Components which include replacement needs, sustainability needs, marketability/livability needs, and accessibility needs.
