What is UPCS-V?
HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) launched an Oversight and Evaluation Division (OED) in 2015, which is currently revising HUD’s methods for overseeing inspections in the housing choice voucher (HCV) program.
REAC plans to replace the current housing quality standards (HQS) with a new inspection protocol called UPCS-V (with the V signifying “voucher”).
As UPCS-V is still in the planning stages, we are monitoring its development carefully and will immediately implement any new requirements as soon as they are announced.
