HUD’s Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) recognizes that, in addition to providing and maintaining affordable housing, Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities are coordinating emergency health services, emergency housing services, law enforcement, and other essential governmental services in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. ONAP also recognizes that these services are being provided while offices are closed, or staff is significantly reduced or teleworking.
In an effort to provide some relief for Tribes impacted by COVID-19, ONAP is extending the due dates for certain reports. Effective immediately, ONAP is extending, by 90 calendar days, the original due date for the following:
· IHBG Annual Performance Reports
· Quarterly and Final Federal Financial Reports (SF-425) for all ONAP managed grants:
– IHBG Formula and Competitive
– ICDBG and ICDBG IT
– Tribal HUD VASH
· Tribal HUD VASH Reports (HUD-50058)
· ICDBG Closeouts and Final Status and Evaluation Reports
· Responses to open findings for Monitoring and Audits
The 90-days extension currently applies to original due dates through June 30, 2020.
ONAP is taking these actions pursuant to a March 19, 2020, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-20-17, entitled, “Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) due to Loss of Operations.”
Through this memo, OMB has also automatically extends the due date for audits required by Single Audit Act (chapter 75 of title 31, United States Code), implemented by 2 C.F.R. part 200, subpart F, by six (6) months from the normal due date. This applies to grantees that have fiscal year-ends through June 30, 2020.
If your Tribe or Tribally Designated Housing Entity has questions regarding the status of any of the above-referenced reports, please contact your Area ONAP for further direction.
