 Multifamily Asset Management Update

Revisions to HAP Assignment Form

The Office of Asset Management and Portfolio Oversight (OAMPO) has made revisions to the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Assignment form in order to clarify the roles of the various signatories in the HAP Assignment process. Going forward, the revised form must be used for all HAP Assignments, including those processed under Notice H 2012–25. Click below to view the revised form.

HUD will continue to process HAP Assignments that are under way. Note that if the contract being assigned is administered by a Contract Administrator, HUD will require that the Contract Administrator sign the HAP Assignment form prior to HUD doing so.

If you have questions about the HAP Assignment process, contact your HUD account executive or resolution specialist office.
