SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 15, 1999, HUD published a final rule (64 FR 50140) that implements sections 1012 and 1013 of the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 (42 U.S.C. 4851 et seq.). The purpose of the rule is to ensure that Federally-owned or assisted housing does not pose lead-based paint hazards to young children. The majority of the provisions contained in the final rule will become effective on September 15, 2000 (one year following the date of publication). This document corrects two typographical errors contained in the September 15, 1999 final rule that regard the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program (codified at 24 CFR part 982) and the Section 8 Project-Based Certificate program (codified at 24 CFR part 983). The corrections made by this document are as follows:

1. Correction to § 982.305 (PHA approval of assisted tenancy). This document corrects a typographical error contained in § 982.305(b) of the September 15, 1999 final rule. The September 15, 1999 final rule amended paragraph (b)(3) of § 982.305 to reference the lead-based disclosure information required under 24 CFR 35.92(b). This reference is more appropriately set forth in paragraph (b)(1)(ii) of § 982.305. This document makes the necessary correction. As corrected by this document, 982.305(b)(1)(ii) provides that, before the beginning of the initial term of the lease for the unit, the landlord and the tenant must have executed the lease (including the HUD-prescribed tenancy addendum, and the lead-based paint disclosure information as required in 24 CFR 35.13(b)).

2. Correction to § 983.1 (Purpose and applicability). This document corrects a typographical error contained in § 983.1 of the September 15, 1999 final rule. Paragraph (b) of § 983.1 describes the provisions of 24 CFR part 982 that apply to the Section 8 Project-Based Certificate program. The September 15, 1999 final rule amended § 983.1(b) by adding a citation to § 982.401(j). However, the citation did not explain to readers that § 982.401(j) contains applicable lead-based paint requirements. This document adds a parenthetical after the citation to clarify this point.
