Klein Hornig possesses a thorough understanding of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) regulatory landscape and the cross-cutting requirements applicable to HUD programs, including prevailing wage, Section 3, subsidy layering review, environmental review, fair housing, and relocation. We leverage this experience to guide our clients through HUD for matters both novel and routine, facilitating the development and preservation of HUD-financed and HUD subsidized housing nationwide.

  • 2530 Previous Participation Clearance and Transfer of Physical Assets (TPA) procedures;
  • Administrative/enforcement actions initiated by HUD’s monitoring and compliance branches;
