In order to give high quality owners more flexibility, CHA offers the Inspection Excellence Program, an incentive program for owners to pass inspections on the first attempt. (This program takes the place of the Owner Excellence Program.)
Benefits will be in two tiers and will apply to units, not owners.
- Requirement: unit must pass two inspections in a row (initial and/or annual) on the first try.
- Benefits: biennial inspections (every two years rather than every year), self-certification by owner and tenant for minor fails, and a Home Depot discount card for owner.
- Requirements: unit must qualify for Tier 1 and pass an enhanced inspection with revised criteria.
- Benefits: biennial inspections, self-certification by owner and tenant for minor fails, vacancy payments and Home Depot discount card for owner.
Units that have met these requirements in their last two inspections in 2014 and 2015 will receive these benefits immediately. Owners will be notified if one or more of their units qualify for the program.
