SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 24, 2000 (65 FR 9322), HUD published its Fiscal Year (FY) 2000 Super Notice of Funding Availability (SuperNOFA) for HUD's Housing, Community Development, and Empowerment Programs and Section 8 Housing Voucher Assistance. The FY 2000 SuperNOFA announced the availability of approximately $2.424 billion in HUD program funds covering 39 grant categories within programs operated and administered by HUD offices and Section 8 housing voucher assistance. The FY 2000 SuperNOFA included HUD's funding availability announcement for the Economic Development Initiative (EDI). The EDI section of the SuperNOFA announced the availability of approximately $24.1 million in EDI funds to stimulate economic development by local governments and private sector parties.

This document extends the application due date to apply for funding for regional economic development projects under the Economic Development Initiative (EDI) to July 14, 2000. This application due date extension is only for regional economic development project applications. It has been brought to HUD's attention that the amount of time necessary to collect and compile the information necessary for a regional economic development project application is more time consuming than that required for general economic development project applications. Accordingly, HUD is providing additional time to prepare and submit regional economic development project applications. (Please note that the EDI application due was extended previously to June 13, 2000, for all applications by notice published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2000 (65 FR 26844).)

Please note that applicants that already submitted applications for regional economic development projects by the June 13, 2000, application due date, need not resubmit a new application and need not amend their applications. Applicants that already submitted applications for regional economic development projects, however, may submit new or amended applications if they choose to do so. Applicants that already submitted applications and plan to submit new or amended applications should clearly identify whether the information submitted is new and replaces a previously submitted application in its entirety or is an addendum or amendment to the previously submitted application.

The funding availability announcement for EDI is found at page 9787 of the February 24, 2000 SuperNOFA. The original announcement contains all the information with respect to EDI application contents and where to submit EDI applications. This notice only provides the extended due date for Start Printed Page 36838regional economic development project applications.

Therefore, in the Super Notice of Funding Availability for Housing, Community Development, and Empowerment Programs and Section 8 Housing Voucher Assistance for Fiscal Year 2000, notice document 00-4123, beginning at 65 FR 9322, in the issue of Friday, February 24, 2000, the following clarification is made:
