L. 105-276, approved October 21, 1998; 112 Stat. 2461, 2475) (the “FY 1999 HUD Appropriations Act”) made $24 million in FY 1999 funds available for competitive funding under the Rural Housing and Economic Development program.

The amount of unobligated funds from this source is $3 million. Therefore, the total amount of funding made available under the NOFA was $27 million. The competition was announced in the NOFA published in the Federal Register on March 8, 1999 (64 FR 4483). Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in that Notice.

A total of $27 million was awarded to 91 projects nationwide.
