Federal Real Property Assistance Program
The HHS Federal Real Property Assistance Program oversees government-wide requirements of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, and monitors and oversee the proper use of the property after it is transferred.
PSC, in coordination with the General Services Administration (GSA), administers the Federal Real Property Assistance Program for HHS. Under the authority of the Title 40 U.S.C. 550, GSA identifies real property no longer needed within the federal government for disposal. Under this authority and Title V of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, as amended (see 42 U.S.C. 11411), HHS may transfer federal surplus real property to approved applicants for both public health and homeless assistance purposes. Approved uses include homeless shelters, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, hospitals, clinics, research, and water systems.
States, local units of government, and 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations.
