On October 24, 2016, HUD published a document advising the public on HUD's implementation plans for the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA) (Pub. L. 114-201). That document inadvertently contained inaccurate implementation information for changes relating to SHOP. This correction replaces that inaccurate information with the corrected information.

Implementation action: This provision was effective upon enactment of HOTMA. The Fiscal Year 2016 SHOP Notice of Funding Availability states that due to this provision, all applicants are strongly encouraged, but not required, to use ENERGY STAR-labeled appliances and products. Applicants are also strongly encouraged, but not required, to meet the standard for ENERGY STAR Certified New Homes (single-family homes and low-rise multifamily properties up to three stories), or for ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise (four or more stories).
