MFH Property Preservation Tool - The dashboard has been updated with June 2017 maturing mortgage data, which provides loan-level information on dates when Section 514 and 515 properties are projected to pay off their loans and exit USDA's Multi-Family Housing program. A spreadsheet containing the raw data can be accessed here.
CNA Template (xlsm) - The CNA Template Ver 1.5h should be used in lieu of all previously used versions of CNA Worksheets. The CNA Template Ver 1.5i 52318 contained errors and should not be used. The template documents the findings reached when using RD's published Guidance on the Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) process. It includes updated estimated useful life tables, and incorporates the rehabilitation guidance and miscellaneous format revisions for consistency with current program initiatives. This form has been tested and verified using the standard Windows Microsoft Excel ® (Excel 2013) to resolve compatibility issues previously reported. Use with other operating systems such as those from Apple® or Android®, or those using earlier spreadsheet programs may continue to experience compatibility issues requiring further discussion in the CNA report.

This UL includes general instructions to be used in completing the RD CNA reports, specific instructions on how to use the expected useful life tables, and a set of applicable forms including the Terms of Reference form; Systems and Conditions forms; and Evaluator's Summary forms. This new guide is now comprised of nine main sections: 1) Definitions; 2) Contract Addendum; 3) Requirements and Statement of Work (SOW) for a CNA; 4) The CNA Review Process; 5) Guidance for the Multi-Family Housing (MFH) CNA Recipient Regarding Contracting for a CNA; 6) Revising an Accepted CNA During Underwriting; 7) Updating a CNA; 8) Incorporating a Property’s Rehabilitation into a CNA; and 9) Repair and Replacement Schedule. This entire Unnumbered Letter should be made available to RD MFH property owners, applicants and CNA Providers who are or are planning to submit transactions using the MPR or any other RD RRH or FLH program loan making or servicing authorities. Only CNAs following this guidance will be accepted.
