Reconstruction with Elevation homeowners that have DOB higher than their grant award based on the first grant award calculation may have a housing discrimination issue to file against HUD.

FAQ#: 111 published 3-28-2019

Solution 2 Reconstruction with Elevation homeowners that have DOB higher than their grant award based on the first grant award calculation may have a housing discrimination issue to file against HUD.
 
Background: Homeowners who elevated using SBA grants were not afforded the offset costs of elevation as identified July 13, 2018 in APA 9. The elevation allowances were never applied to homeowners during the initial grant award process which would have lowered the DOB to include accounts with SBA loans. The state has instructed these homeowners to wait for an SBA fix. The state has been informed of the issue and has yet to respond.
 
The research has been completed, if you can complete the spreadsheet I've linked here and show you are eligible for a grant once you add your elevation costs you may have a solid case to file with HUD OIG this week. I will coach and offer the reporting process to those penalized by the first grant calculation method that omitted unmet needs, unforeseen costs, and elevation costs.
 
Complete the Spreadsheet and PM me a copy, I will be attaching them to a report I will be publishing and you will need to submit it to HUD OIG with your report.
