HUD Regulatory Compliance

A HUD audit is conducted to ensure that recipients of HUD funding comply with federal regulations and use funds appropriately. Housing Authorities and participants in HUD and HFA programs in the insured multi-family housing program must prepare annual financial reports according to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) guidelines. The financial reports must follow generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The reports must also be submitted to HUD electronically through their online Real Estate Assessment Center system (REAC) for processing within 90 days of their fiscal year-end for review and inspection from the Multi-Family Assessment Center. We assist with the submission of these required reports and forms through REAC. HUD uses these submissions to assess each HUD property’s financial strength and regulatory compliance.

Our Process & Approach


Relatively few CPAs are qualified and experienced to audit Housing Authorities, HUD programs, and LIHTC projects. HUD audits are complex, specialized, and require certain specific disclosures. LIHTC projects must maintain compliance or risk losing their tax credits. Our real estate professionals focus on HUD and LIHTC projects, including housing authorities, enabling us to excel at performing audit, tax, and consulting services effectively and affordably. Our firm is peer-reviewed every 3 years, and we remain current on new standards, regulations, and trends through continuing education and peer-to-peer relations. We impart knowledge to avoid pitfalls affecting your project’s development and continuing operations. We will help you comply with HUD and Section 42 requirements to avoid penalties, sanctions, and termination from HUD and LIHTC programs.
