Section 6.1: Record-keeping Requirements

HUD requires that Shelter Plus Care grantees retain and provide access to program records as outlined in 24 CFR (85.42). Program records include all financial and programmatic records, supporting documents, and statistical records.

In most cases, the records must be kept for three years after the last expenditure report is submitted. If there is pending litigation, an audit, or other action at the end of the three years, grantees must retain the records until the issues are resolved.

The Federal Freedom of Information Act (5 USC 552) does not apply to S+C program records. Unless required by other Federal, State or local law, grantees are not required to permit public access to their records.
