HUD Review Process

During 2004, the process used to submit and review HUD undertakings was streamlined through a weeklong Kaizen event. As part of that work, the Request for SHPO Comment on a Project Form was tailored specifically for HUD projects and guidance was prepared to facilitate submittal and review. A Programmatic Memorandum of Understanding (PMOU) was prepared for projects funded through the Iowa Department of Economic Development (IDED), and a number of HUD entitlement communities. If your project falls under one of these PMOUs, be sure to reference the agreement before submitting anything to our office. For additional information on history, architectural history, archaeology, preservation, and Section 106, in general, please review our Technical Assistance web pages.
