SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As part of the Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (the “HUD Reform Act”), the Congress adopted, at HUD's request, legislation to limit and control the granting of regulatory waivers by HUD. Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act added a new section 7(q) to the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (2 U.S.C. 3535(q)), which provides that:

1. Any waiver of a regulation must be in writing and must specify the grounds for approving the waiver;

2. Authority to approve a waiver of a regulation may be delegated by the Secretary only to an individual of Assistant Secretary rank or equivalent rank, and the person to whom authority to waive is delegated must also have authority to issue the particular regulation to be waived;

3. Not less than quarterly, the Secretary must notify the public of all waivers of regulations that HUD has approved, by publishing a notice in the Federal Register. These notices (each covering the period since the most recent previous notification) shall:

a. Identify the project, activity, or undertaking involved;

b. Describe the nature of the provision waived, and the designation of the provision;

c. Indicate the name and title of the person who granted the waiver request;

d. Describe briefly the grounds for approval of the request;

e. State how additional information about a particular waiver grant action may be obtained.

Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act also contains requirements applicable to waivers of HUD handbook provisions that are not relevant to the purpose of this notice.

Today's document follows publication of HUD's Statement of Policy on Waiver of Regulations and Directives issued by HUD on April 22, 1991 (56 FR 16337). This notice covers HUD's waiver-grant activity from October 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999. Additionally, this notice contains several reports of regulatory waivers granted during September of 1999, but that were not included in HUD's Federal Register notice of waiver grant activity from July 1, 1999 to September 30, 1999.

For ease of reference, the waivers granted by HUD are listed by HUD program office (for example, the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Housing, the Office of Public and Indian Housing, etc.). Within each program office grouping, the waivers are listed sequentially by the section of title 24 being waived. For example, a waiver-grant action involving the waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would come before a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 570.

Where more than one regulatory provision is involved in the grant of a particular waiver request, the action is listed under the section number of the first regulatory requirement in title 24 that is being waived as part of the waiver-grant action. For example, a waiver of both § 58.73 and § 58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under § 58.73.

Waiver-grant actions involving the same initial regulatory citation are in time sequence beginning with the earliest-dated waiver grant action.

Should HUD receive additional reports of waiver actions taken during the period covered by this report before the next report is published, the next updated report will include these earlier actions, as well as those that occurred between January 1, 2000 through March 30, 2000.

Accordingly, information about approved waiver requests pertaining to HUD regulations is provided in the Appendix that follows this notice.

I. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Community Planning and Development

For Items 1 Through 3, Waivers Granted for 24 CFR Parts 50 and 1000, Contact: Bruce Knott, National Office of Native American Programs, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 1999 Broadway, Suite 3390, Denver, CO 80201; telephone (303) 675-1600 (this is not a toll-free number). Hearing or speech-impaired persons may access this number via TTY by calling the toll-free Federal Information Relay Service at 1-800-877-8391.

1. Regulation: 24 CFR 50.17 and 1000.20(a).

Project/Activity: White Mountain Apache Tribe; Apache Dawn Phase One project.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 50.17 provides that the required environmental reviews must be completed before the decision points specified by the regulation. HUD's regulation at § 1000.20(a) provides that a HUD environmental review must be completed for Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program activities not excluded from review under 24 CFR 50.19(b) before a recipient may commit HUD funds used in conjunction with IHBG program assisted activities.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development; Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: November 30, 1999.

Reasons Waived: A request was made by the White Mountain Apache Tribe for HUD to perform the environmental review under 24 CFR part 50 for the Apache Dawn Phase One Project. The tribally designated housing entity (TDHE) made several errors during the 24 CFR part 58 environmental review and clearance process for the project (to be financed with Section 184/Ginnie Mae collateralized tax-exempt bonds), resulting in the TDHE obligating Section 184 Loan Guarantee proceeds and Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) funds prior to HUD Start Printed Page 14717approval of a Request for a Release of Funds and Certification. The Tribe and TDHE acted in good faith in trying to comply with HUD's environmental review and clearance process. No environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance identified. The errors committed under 24 CFR part 58 would have delayed the bond closing resulting in the cancellation of the project.

2. Regulation: 24 CFR 50.17 and 1000.20(a).

Project/Activity: The Quileute Tribe and its housing authority were provided grant funds to develop 15 houses on the Indian reservation. Prior to the obligation of funds, the Tribe is required to complete an environmental assessment under 24 CFR part 58 or HUD is required to complete the environmental assessment under 24 CFR part 50. The Tribe elected to comply with the part 58 requirements. However, HUD discovered procedural errors during a post review of the environmental record.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at § 50.17 provides that the required environmental reviews must be completed before the decision points specified by the regulation. HUD's regulation at § 1000.20(a) provides that a HUD environmental review must be completed for Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program activities not excluded from review under 24 CFR 50.19(b) before a recipient may commit HUD funds used in conjunction with IHBG program assisted activities.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development; Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: December 6, 1999.

Reason Waived: Based on the information that was provided by the Tribe, the documentation that was received by HUD, and a determination by HUD that no environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance, HUD believed that there was good cause to waive the requirements of §§ 1000.20(a) and 50.17.

3. Regulation: 24 CFR 50.17 and 1000.20(a).

Project/Activity: The Coeur D'Alene Tribe and its housing authority were provided grant funds to develop 5 houses on the Indian reservation. Prior to the obligation of funds, the Tribe is required to complete an environmental assessment under 24 CFR part 58 or HUD is required to complete the environmental assessment under 24 CFR part 50. The Tribe elected to comply with the part 58 requirements. However, HUD discovered procedural errors during a post review of the environmental record.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at § 50.17 provides that the required environmental reviews must be completed before the decision points specified by the regulation. HUD's regulation at § 1000.20(a) provides that a HUD environmental review must be completed for Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program activities not excluded from review under 24 CFR 50.19(b) before a recipient may commit HUD funds used in conjunction with IHBG program assisted activities.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development; Mr. Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: December 6, 1999.

Reason Waived: Based on the information that was submitted by the Tribe, the documentation that was received by HUD, and a determination by HUD that no environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance, HUD believed that there was good cause to waive the requirements of §§ 1000.20(a) and 50.17.

For Items 4 Through 10, Waivers Granted for 24 CFR Parts 91, 92, 570 and 576 Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW, Room 7152, Washington, DC 20410; telephone (202) 708-2565 (this is not a toll-free number). Hearing or speech-impaired persons may access this number via TTY by calling the toll-free Federal Information Relay Service at 1-800-877-8391.

4. Regulation: 24 CFR 91.520(a).

Project/Activity: Harris County, Texas requested a waiver of the submission deadline for the County's 1998 program year CAPER.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 91.520(a) requires each grant recipient to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: October 19, 1999.

Reasons Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The County requested an extension because staff is addressing concerns raised by HUD regarding the County's data collection methods during a recent monitoring visit. This additional time helped to ensure that the data reported in the CAPER was accurate and complete.

5. Regulation: 24 CFR 91.520(a).

Project/Activity: The County of Onondaga, New York requested a waiver of the submission deadline for the County's 1998 program year CDBG Performance Annual Evaluation Report (CAPER).

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 91.520(a) requires each grant recipient to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: November 24, 1999.

Reasons Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The County had experienced difficulties as a result of staff illness and the installation of new computer equipment.

6. Regulation: 24 CFR 92.500(d)(1)(C).

Project/Activity: The City of Santa Monica, California requested a waiver to extend the deadline for disbursement of HOME program disaster grant funds.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 92.500(d)(1)(C) requires grantees to disburse HOME program funds within five years of the time HUD makes them available.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: October 25, 1999.

Reasons Waived: The project experienced delay due to inclement weather and restrictions on site access. The loss of the funds committed to a project already under construction would constitute a hardship to the City of Santa Monica. HUD determined that there was good cause for a waiver and allowed the City until February 29, 2000 to expend its remaining HOME disaster grant funds.

7. Regulation: 24 CFR 570.200(h)(1)(i).

Project/Activity: The City of Berwyn Illinois and the Village of Palatine, Illinois requested a waiver of the requirement governing reimbursement for CDBG pre-award costs.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program regulations at 24 CFR 570.200 (h)(1)(i) provide that, before the effective date of the CDBG grant agreement, a recipient may incur costs for activities included in a Consolidated Plan Action Plan, or an amended Consolidated Plan and then reimburse itself after the grant is received.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: December 13, 1999.

Reasons Waived: The two communities that requested this waiver are new entitlements and do not have Consolidated Plans in place. In order for these communities to incur costs to carry out these activities and reimburse themselves for such costs after their CDBG grants are awarded, a waiver of 24 CFR 570.200(h)(1)(i) was necessary. HUD may waive any requirement, not specifically required by law, upon determination of good cause, if undue hardship would result from applying the requirement. It is not HUD's intention to put the financial burden for program start-up costs on local resources by prohibiting reimbursement from CDBG program funds. This could negatively impact the implementation of the City's and Village's CDBG programs and their ability to effectively carry-out activities that will benefit low- and moderate-income residents.

8. Regulation: 24 CFR 570.200(h)(1)(i).

Project/Activity: The City of Auburn, Alabama requested a waiver of the requirement governing reimbursement for CDBG pre-award costs.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program regulations at 24 CFR 570.200 (h)(1)(i) provide that, before the effective date of the CDBG grant agreement, a recipient may incur costs for activities included in a Consolidated Plan Action Plan, or an amended Consolidated Plan and then reimburse itself after the grant is received.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: December 13, 1999.

Reasons Waived: The community that requested the waiver is a new entitlement, and does not have a Consolidated Plan in place. In order for this community to incur Start Printed Page 14718costs to carry out activities and reimburse itself for such costs after its grant is awarded, a waiver of 24 CFR 570.200(h)(1)(i) was necessary. HUD may waive any requirement, not specifically required by law, upon determination of good cause, if undue hardship would result from applying the requirement. It is not HUD's intention to put the financial burden for program start-up costs on local resources by prohibiting reimbursement from CDBG program funds. This could negatively impact the implementation of the City's CDBG program and its ability to effectively carry-out activities that will benefit low-and moderate-income residents.

9. Regulation: 24 CFR 576.21.

Project/Activity: The County of Onandaga, NY requested a waiver of the Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) program regulations at 24 CFR 576.21.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 576.21 state that recipients of ESG grant funds are subject to the limits on the use of assistance for essential services established in section 414(a)(2)(B) of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11374(a)(2)(B)). Essential services are commonly defined as services that provide health, employment, drug abuse, and education to homeless persons.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: October 20, 1999.

Reasons Waived: Under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act, amended by the National Affordable Housing Act the 30 percent cap on essential services may be waived if the grantee “demonstrates that the other eligible activities under the program are already being carried out in the locality with other resources.” A letter from the County Administrator to HUD documented that other resources were being used to address homeless needs. Therefore, HUD allowed the County to expend 32.57 percent of its FY 1998 ESG funds for this expenditure category.

10. Regulation: 24 CFR 576.35(b)(2)(ii).

Project/Activity: The State of Tennessee requested a waiver of the 180-day month expenditure deadline.

Nature of Requirement: The ESG program regulation at 24 CFR 576.35(b)(2)(ii) requires State recipients using ESG funds for homeless prevention activities to expend those funds within 180 days of the date on which grant amounts were made available.

Granted by: Cardell Cooper, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: November 2, 1999.

Reasons Waived: The State requested approval to use ESG homeless prevention funds during the first 365 days of the ESG grant term. The waiver was requested to help ensure that the State would not experience a shortfall of resources during the wintertime, when a large number of requests for assistance with rent and utility arrearages are received. HUD recognized the State's need to be able to provide assistance beyond the 180 days allowed in the regulation.

Project/Activity: Corinthian Mortgage Corporation requested a waiver of the requirements of 24 CFR 203.49(c) to extend the initial adjustment dates for adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) loans beyond the 12 to 18 month window currently provided for in the regulation.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation requires that interest rate adjustments for ARMs must occur on an annual basis, except that the first adjustment may occur no sooner than 12 months nor later than 18 months from the date of the mortgagor's first debt service payment.

Granted by: William C. Apgar, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Granted by: William C. Apgar, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: September 30, 1999.

Reason Waived: The project is modest in design, comparable in costs to other similar projects, and the Sponsors were not able to raise any additional funds nor do they have the capacity to provide the funds.

15. Regulation: 24 CFR 891.100(d) and 891.165.

Project/Activity: Mt. Zion Baptist Church, St. Louis, Missouri, Project Number: 085-EE038/MO36-S971-005.

16. Regulation: 24 CFR 891.100(d).

Project/Activity: Reisterstown Village Senior Housing, Reisterstown, Maryland, Project Number: 052-EE025/MD06-S981-002.

Project/Activity: Omaha, Nebraska (Richland Apartments—Project Number 103-HD105). The Kansas City Multifamily Hub has requested a waiver to allow an ineligible family admitted erroneously to this Section 811 project to remain temporarily to avoid a potential hardship if the family were immediately displaced.

Nature of Requirement: The HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 891 define a disabled household as “one or more persons at least one of whom is an adult (18 years or older) who has a disability.” The regulations also require that an owner is to determine eligibility in selecting tenants.

Granted by: William C. Apgar, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: October 12, 1999.

Reason Waived: The Assistant Secretary granted this waiver based on the special circumstances of this case in which management did not focus on the eligibility limitations of the section 811 program. This waiver allowed the family to stay for the remaining term of their lease or one year, whichever was less. Further, the project was required to bear the costs of the family's relocation. The waiver applied solely to the subject household.

In this case the waiver will be extended to her 62nd birthday, so that she may remain in the project. These measures are being taken to restore the project to a 202/PRAC for the elderly over time.

Project/Activity: San Francisco Housing Authority, California; Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 982.303(a) provides for an initial voucher term of 60 days. HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 982.503(c)(4)(ii) provides that HUD will only approve an exception payment standard above 120 percent of the fair market rent (FMR) after six months from the date of HUD approval of an exception payment standard implementing 120 percent payment standards.

Granted by: Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Pubic and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: December 27, 1999.

Reason Waived: Approval of the waiver was necessary to allow an initial term of six months and thereby provide a longer initial search time for families to find housing under the program in the extremely tight San Francisco rental market. The waiver also immediately increased the payment standards above 120 percent to ensure that families were not required to pay more than 40 percent of their income for rent.

94. Regulation: 24 CFR 982.312. Start Printed Page 14727

Project/Activity: Cumberland County Housing Authority, Pennsylvania; Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Granted by: Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Pubic and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: December 17, 1999.

For Item 95, Waiver Granted for 24 CFR Part 990, Contact: Stephen Sprague, Funding and Financial Management Division, Office of Public and Indian Housing, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW, Room 4216, Washington, DC 20410; telephone (202) 708-1872 (this is not a toll-free number).

95. Regulation: 24 CFR 990.107(f) and 990.109.

Project/Activity: Housing Authority of San Joaquin, CA.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulations at 24 CFR part 990 establish the policies and procedures governing the Performance Funding System (PFS). The PFS regulations at §§ 990.107(f) and 990.109 provide that the energy conservation incentive that relates to energy performance contracting applies to only PHA-paid utilities. The Housing Authority of San Joaquin has both PHA-paid and tenant-paid utilities.

Granted by: Harold Lucas, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: October 12, 1999.

Reason Waived: A request was made to permit the Authority to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments which have tenant-paid utilities. The PHA estimates that it could increase savings substantially if it were able to undertake energy performance contracting for both PHA-paid and tenant-paid utilities. In September 1996, the Oakland Housing Authority was granted a waiver to permit the Authority to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments with tenant-paid utilities. The waiver was granted on the basis that the Authority presented a sound and reasonable methodology for doing so. The Housing Authority of San Joaquin requested a waiver based on the same approved methodology. The waiver permits the PHA to exclude from its PFS calculation of rental income, increased rental income due to the difference between updated baseline utility (before implementation of the energy conservation measures) and revised allowances (after implementation of the measures) for the project(s) involved for the duration of the contract period, which cannot exceed 12 years.
