Important Deadline: TRACS Certification

In 2017, HUD implemented the requirement for all external users of HUD’s TRACS system to be recertified on an annual basis. This year, all users must be recertified in TRACS no later than November 30, 2018. If your properties submit TRACS vouchers and tenant files (HUD-50059/50059A), please be aware that users who have not been recertified by their organization’s TRACS coordinator will not be able to log into the TRACS system, which could cause a delay in submitting your properties’ TRACS files and delay the payment of HAP (Housing Assistance Payments).

For more information about recertifying your TRACS users, please visit HUD’s TRACS website: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/housing/mfh/trx/trxsum 

The official TRACS External User Recertification Notification can be found here: https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/Housing/documents/TRACS_External_User_Rec.pdf 

The TRACS Recertification User’s Guide can be found here: https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/TRACSRECERTGUIDE.PDF 

If you have any questions regarding this requirement, please contact HUD at 1.800.767.7588 or TRACS@hud.gov.
