Previous Participation Reporting / HUD 2530 / APPS

The Previous Participation Certification process was put in place by HUD to ensure that companies and individuals who wish to participate in HUD's multifamily housing programs have an acceptable history of carrying out their past financial, legal, and administrative obligations.

HUD requires prospective owners, developers, managers, and general contractors who want to participate in properties that are utilizing HUD mortgage insurance programs, direct loans or tenant subsidy programs to file the HUD 2530 Previous Participation form, to gain HUD's approval. Additionally, any time principals change (general partners, limited partners, owners, management agents or board members) a new 2530 must be submitted for approval.

The APPS System (HUD's secure internet-based 2530 submission vehicle) is an important reporting tool for both HUD and program participants. With an APPS submission, applicants have the ability to identify (and mitigate) HUD's critical and non-critical 2530 findings before the 2530 is ever submitted to HUD. Properly completed APPS submissions streamline the review work and save HUD a significant amount of processing time.
