SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 3, 1999 (64 FR 67982), HUD published a final rule amending its regulations for the Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP). The December 3, 1999 final rule adopted the amendments to the SEMAP regulations made by HUD's July 26, 1999 (64 FR 40496) interim rule. The July 26, 1999 interim rule made various technical amendments to the SEMAP regulations. The public comment period on the interim rule closed on September 24, 1999. No public comments were submitted on the interim rule. Accordingly, the December 3, 1999 final rule adopted the amendments made by the interim rule without change. The final rule became effective on January 3, 2000.

In addition to finalizing the July 26, 1999 interim rule, the December 3, 1999 final rule also made several amendments to conform the SEMAP regulations to HUD's October 21, 1999 (64 FR 56894) final rule implementing the statutory merger of the Section 8 tenant-based certificate and voucher programs into the new Housing Choice Voucher program (the regulations for this new program are codified at 24 CFR part 982).

The purpose of this document is to correct two typographical errors contained in the SEMAP regulations at 24 CFR part 985. Specifically, § 985.3 provides two incorrect percentages in the provisions regarding the rating of public housing agency (PHA) management performance. The corrections were intended to be part of the December 3, 1999 final rule, but were inadvertently omitted from that rule. This document makes the necessary correction to the December 3, 1999 final rule.
