What is the New Green PNA Rule?

Housing Authorities (PHAs) receive over $2 billion each year to develop
and modernize public housing. But until this point, there was no way to
measure the effectiveness of these funds, especially with energy


of this, HUD has released a Green Physical Needs Assessment (GPNA) tool
to assess the life cycle needs of public housing units and buildings.

tool will enable HUD and PHAs to measure the impact of funding and
develop management practices to implement capital towards the most
effective energy efficiency solutions. It is important that PHAs receive
the proper GPNA training to be able to fulfill their HUD obligations.

There are 3,500 housing authorities within the US with about 3.5
million single units. All of these units MUST be inspected within a year
from 7/1/2013 when the new law goes into effect.

This is a
major market for home inspectors. Upon completing our training course
you receive a list of HUD facilities who will be in need of certified
GPNA inspectors. The project is set to begin within 4 months of this law
going into effect as there are not enough inspectors trained to conduct
these inspections.

A typical inspection will consist of 800 –
5,000 units and in most cases you will only have to actually inspect 10%
if all units are built the same But you get paid for 100% of units.
Average time per inspection is 20 minutes per unit. Typical charge is
$55 - $75 per unit. And the inspection has to be repeated again in 5

With the growing number of HUD properties this type of inspection could triple your yearly revenue for the rest of your life.
