HUD Opens CSP Round Five with Reduced Reimbursements for Senior Housing

HUD has opened the fifth and final round of COVID-19 Supplemental Payments (CSPs) for MFH providers. CSPs help housing providers address operating cost increases incurred by owners to prevent, prepare for, or respond to COVID-19 at their properties. The request deadline is February 21, 2023 for expenses incurred through January 31, 2023 through a reimbursement. Following advocacy from LeadingAge, the fifth round continues to support reimbursement for the previously eligible operating costs, like staffing, security, and cleaning, as well as for the previously eligible capital costs, like internet infrastructure installation and backup generator installation.

In addition, HUD added two eligible uses for reimbursement: resident training on use of technology to access on-line property management portals and supportive services, as an eligible Category A, operational cost; and costs to enhance outdoor seating spaces that support gatherings, as an eligible Category B, capital cost. However, as expected, there is less CSP funding available for Section 202 properties this round. 

As a result, there is less than $2 million available for Section 202 properties in round five, compared to almost $140 million available for projected-Based Section 8 properties. HUD will prioritize funding operational expenses over capital expenses.
