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 (42 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 July 1, 2000 through September 30, 2000. Additionally, this notice contains one report of a regulatory waiver granted from March 1, 2000 through June 30, 2000 that was inadvertently omitted from the last notice. The report can be found in Section IV of this notice with respect to a waiver granted in connection with 24 CFR 950.980.

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 October 1, 2000 through December 31, 2000.

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

For further information about the following waiver actions, please see the name of the person which immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: Housing rehabilitation and housing acquisition projects, Ohkay Owingeh Housing Authority and the San Juan Pueblo Tribe, San Juan Pueblo, New Mexico.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 58.34(b) states that a recipient does not have to submit a Request for Release of Funds and certification, and that no further approval from HUD will be needed to carry out exempt activities and projects, provided the responsible entity documents its determination that each activity or project is exempt. Start Printed Page 5377Additionally, 24 CFR 58.38 requires the responsible entity to maintain a written record of the environmental review for each project. This document will be designated the Environmental Review Record, which shall contain all environmental review documents, public notices and written determinations or environmental findings required by part 58, decision making and actions pertaining to a particular project.

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

Date Granted: July 28, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Ohkay Owingeh Housing Authority made several errors during the environmental review and clearance process required by 24 CFR part 58 that resulted in the Housing Authority obligating and expending grant funds for the project before a determination by the San Juan Pueblo that the activities were exempt. HUD made a determination that there was no statutory or regulatory provision that would have prevented conversion of these activities to exempt. Therefore, this waiver was needed in order to permit the San Juan Pueblo to complete the environmental review process by documenting that the activities are exempt under 24 CFR part 58, after the obligation of HUD funds. HUD also determined that no environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance and that no mitigation activities would be necessary since no environmental damage or potential problems were identified. Considering the above, HUD determined that a waiver of the regulatory requirements would maintain the integrity of HUD's environmental review process and was consistent with Executive Order 12084 that encourages flexibility in the consideration of waiver requests from tribal governments.

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

Date Granted: August 31, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver since the transaction would assist the City in its effort to provide an affordable unit for a low income family.

Regulation: 24 CFR 92.251.

Project/Activity: North Dakota counties and Indian reservation communities requested a waiver of the HOME provision which requires HOME-assisted housing to meet the applicable codes, standards, and ordinances specified.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 92.251 requires that housing that is constructed or rehabilitated with HOME funds must meet all applicable local codes, rehabilitation standards, ordinances, and zoning ordinances at the time of project completion.

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

Date Granted: August 31, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The State of North Dakota requested this waiver in order to allow for the use of HOME funds for emergency repairs on damaged housing within the disaster area. Funding sources are inadequate to address the housing needs that exist within the disaster area. The State would like to use HOME funds to assist in addressing this need. HUD therefore determined that this provision creates undue hardship for the communities and families in need of disaster-related assistance.

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

Date Granted: July 28, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The City is a new Entitlement community. Failure to grant the waiver would result in undue hardship and affect the benefits to the low- and moderate-income population of the City. Further, the authorization for new grantees to pay for planning and administrative start-up costs with CDBG funds was inadvertently omitted during the November 1995 revision to the CDBG regulations.

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

Date Granted: July 10, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Hennepin County provided documentation to support its claim that alternative funding for rehabilitation, operating costs and other eligible activities is available. The waiver allows Hennepin County to spend up to 100 percent of its FY 1999 and FY 2000 grants on essential services.

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

Date Granted: July 28, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The City experienced unexpected delays in several rehabilitation projects.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 882.408(b) allows a housing agency to approve initial gross rents which exceed the applicable FMR by up to 10 percent for all units of a given size in specified areas.

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

Date Granted: September 5, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Higher rents were necessitated by development obstacles such as change in sites, change in owner/developer and delay in obtaining financial resources.

Project/Activity: The San Francisco, California Housing Authority requested a waiver of the Single Room Occupancy (SRO) requirement on the maximum amount allowed per unit for rehabilitation.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 882.805(d)(1)(ii)(B) allows an SRO recipient to multiply the maximum per unit rehabilitation amount by 2.4 in areas where the Housing Authority has demonstrated to HUD's satisfaction that the increase is reasonable to accommodate special local conditions, including high construction costs. In the case of San Francisco, this would allow a maximum rehabilitation costs of $42,840.

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

Date Granted: August 30, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The City documented the high cost of the project and the difficulty in finding and acquiring suitable properties for the SRO program. The City further stated that the property is almost 90 years old and needs extensive rehabilitation to meet current building and accessibility code standards. The final per unit rehabilitation cost for this project is projected to be $69,311, well above the maximum approvable cost.

II. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Community Planning and Development and the Office of Public and Indian Housing

For further information about the following waiver actions, please see the name of the person which immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Regulation: 24 CFR 50.3(h)(3) and 1000.20(a).

Project/Activity: Acquisition of 10 Operation Walking Shield housing units, Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe and Flandreau Santee Sioux Housing Authority, Flandreau, South Dakota.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at § 50.3(h) requires that for HUD grant programs in which funding approval for an applicant's program must occur before the applicant's selection of properties an applicant must agree to not acquire, rehabilitate, convert, lease, repair or construct property, nor commit or expend HUD or local funds until HUD approval of the property is obtained. HUD's regulation at § 1000.20(a) requires an environmental review be completed for any Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act project not excluded from review before a recipient may acquire, rehabilitate, convert, lease, repair or construct property, or commit HUD or local funds.

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

Date Granted: July 31, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Flandreau Santee Sioux Housing Authority used NAHASDA funds to acquire, rehabilitate and lease the subject Walking Shield units before receiving HUD approval of the property as required by 24 CFR 50.3(h)(3) and before HUD completed an environmental review. HUD has since completed the environmental review for the project. In order to satisfactorily resolve the issue, waivers of the provisions of 24 CFR 50.3(h)(3) and 1000.20(a) are necessary. HUD also determined that no environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance and that no mitigation activities would be necessary since no environmental damage or potential problems were identified. Considering the above, HUD determined that a waiver of the regulatory requirements would maintain the integrity of HUD's environmental review process and was consistent with Executive Order 12084 that encourages flexibility in the consideration of waiver requests from tribal governments.

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

Project/Activity: Construction of 15 housing units with residual 1937 Housing Act funds under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA), Upper Sioux Tribe, Granite Falls, Minnesota.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at § 50.17 requires that an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact or an environmental impact statement be completed before the applicable decision points for projects not exempt or categorically excluded from environmental review requirements. HUD's regulation at § 1000.20(a) requires that an environmental review be completed for any NAHASDA project not excluded from review before a recipient may acquire, rehabilitate, convert, lease, repair or construct property, or commit HUD or local funds.

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

Date Granted: Granted by Mr. Cooper on July 27, 2000 and by Mr. Lucas on July 28, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Upper Sioux Tribe made several errors during the environmental review and clearance process required by 24 CFR part 58 that resulted in the tribe obligating and expending grant funds for the project before HUD's approval of the Request for Release of Funds and Certification, form HUD 7015.15. HUD made a determination based upon these actions to conduct an environmental review according to 24 CFR part 50. A HUD environmental review at this point would be after the execution of the Indian Housing Block Grant Agreement for this project. Therefore, a waiver is Start Printed Page 5384necessary to allow HUD to conduct the review and resolve the issue. HUD also determined that no environmental degradation resulted from the regulatory noncompliance and that no mitigation activities would be necessary since no environmental damage or potential problems were identified. Considering the above, HUD determined that a waiver of the regulatory requirements would maintain the integrity of HUD's environmental review process and was consistent with Executive Order 12084 that encourages flexibility in the consideration of waiver requests from tribal governments.

The consumers served under the sponsor's existing programs did not generally require accessible housing, therefore accessibility of the one site was more than adequate for potential residents.

Contact: Willie Spearmon, Director, Office of Housing Assistance and Grant Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410, telephone: (202) 708-3000.

Project/Activity: Brooklyn Home for Aged People, New York, New York, Project Number: 012-EH059/NY36-T781-032.

Nature Of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 891.165 provides that the duration of a capital advance fund reservation is 18 months from the date of issuance with limited exceptions up to 24 months as approved by HUD on a case-by-case basis.

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

Date Granted: September 8, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The project was beset with problems, including the fact that the contractor took the project to arbitration over the slow rate of progress. The project was scheduled for completion on or before June 1984. In order to complete construction, the original mortgage was increased and the borrower arranged in 1988 for a second general contractor to complete construction. In an attempt to avoid any liability, the borrower filed for bankruptcy in 1989. The bankruptcy agreement stipulated that the supplemental loan be at 0 percent interest and this agreement was binding.

Contact: Willie Spearmon, Director, Office of Housing Assistance and Grant Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410, telephone: (202) 708-3000.

Project/Activity: Northview Apartments, Okemah, Oklahoma, Project Number 117-EH089.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulations at 24 CFR part 891 limit occupancy to very low income (VLI) elderly households where or one or more persons is at least 62 years of age at the time of initial occupancy.

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

Date Granted: July 20, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Kansas City multifamily HUB requested waiver of this regulation due to the limited market of elderly individuals and families. This project is located in a small rural community and has historically been unable to attract elderly families to fill vacancies. This waiver will expand the number of eligible households who can be admitted to the property allowing the owner additional, necessary flexibility in renting up units.

Contact: Frank M. Malone, Director, Office of Asset Management, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-3730.

Project/Activity: IOOF Tower, Salt Lake City, Utah, Project No: 105-EH050.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulations at 24 CFR part 891 limit occupancy to very low income households composed of two or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age or older at the time of initial occupancy.

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

Date Granted: September 12, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Denver multifamily HUB requested an age waiver because the project had been unable to sustain occupancy due to the somewhat depressed surrounding neighborhood and declining demand for very low income elderly housing. The waiver allowed property management to rent up vacant units.

Contact: Frank M. Malone, Director, Office of Asset Management, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-3730.

Project/Activity: Calvary Tower, Salt Lake City, Utah, Project Number: 105-EH048.

Nature Of Requirement: HUD's regulations at 24 CFR part 891 limit occupancy to very low income households composed of two or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age or older at the time of initial occupancy. Start Printed Page 5390

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

Date Waived: September 20, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The Denver Multifamily Hub requested an age waiver for the project due to the soft market for elderly properties in the Salt Lake City area. The surrounding neighborhood of Calvary Tower is somewhat depressed which also contributes to vacancy problems. Even though the property is currently full, any long term vacancies would pose a financial strain on this property and there is only one applicant on the waiting list. Lowering the age requirement from 62 to 55 and older will allow project management flexibility in attempting to alleviate vacancy problems.

Contact: Frank M. Malone, Director, Office of Asset Management, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-3730.

V. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Public and Indian Housing

For further information about the following waiver actions, please see the name of the person which immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: A request was made by the Cheyenne River Housing Authority (CRHA), Eagle Butte, South Dakota, for a one-year extension of their FY 1994 FIC grant to continue support and funding for their Single Mother's Self-Sufficiency Program. Start Printed Page 5395

Nature of Requirement: While no longer in effect, HUD's regulations at 24 CFR 950.980 governed the Family Investment Center (FIC) program at the time of the initial grant award. The FIC program does not have current regulations and the NOFA does not provide guidance on grant term extensions. The application kit states that the grant term will be of three to five years duration, depending upon the activities undertaken.

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

Date Granted: June 19, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The FIC grant awarded to the CRHA has funded the Single Mother's Self-Sufficiency Program which has provided basic life skills, training and transitional housing for many homeless single mothers, as well as educational opportunities to seventy-four young women, thirty-three of which have completed their entire educational plan; forty-one of the participating that have not completed their goals will be able to achieve them during this additional year of operating the program; the success of the program has prompted the Board of Directors to approve a pilot program for single fathers, providing the same services to men in the area; and the CRHA has been highly competent in submitting their annual reports and financial status reports to the Northern Plains ONAP in a timely manner.

Contact: Tracy C. Outlaw, National Office of Native American Programs (ONAP), Department of Housing and Urban Development, 1999 Broadway—Suite 3390, Denver, Colorado 80202, telephone: (303) 675-1600.

Project/Activity: Tampa Housing Authority, Florida, Public Housing Program.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 963.10(d) restricts a public housing agency (PHA) from contracting with a resident-owned business in excess of $1,000,000.

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

Date Granted: July 26, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Approval of the waiver permitted the PHA to exceed the limit for contracting with resident-owned businesses and closed two Regional Inspector General Audit findings against the PHA.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Real Estate and Housing Performance Division, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh St. SW., Washington, DC 20410, telephone: (202) 708-0477.

Project/Activity: Vermont State Housing Authority, Vermont, Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 982.306(d) limits the circumstances under which a public housing agency may approve the leasing of a unit if the owner of the unit is a close relative of the family.

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

Date Granted: August 2, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Approval of the waiver permitted a voucher holder to lease a unit from a relative because of the unavailability of suitable vacant rental housing in the PHA's jurisdiction.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Real Estate and Housing Performance Division, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh St. SW., Washington, DC 20410, telephone: (202) 708-0477.

Project/Activity: Saint Paul Public Housing Agency, Minnesota, Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 982.306(d) limits the circumstances under which a public housing agency may approve the leasing of a unit if the owner of the unit is a close relative of the family.

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

Date Granted: August 7, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Approval of the waiver permitted a large family to find suitable housing to lease under the housing choice voucher program. The availability of vacant units with three or more bedrooms in the PHA's jurisdiction was extremely low. The market area vacancy rate was less than one percent.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Real Estate and Housing Performance Division, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh St. SW., Washington, DC 20410, telephone: (202) 708-0477.

Project/Activity: Northeast Nebraska Joint Housing Authority, Nebraska, Housing Choice Voucher Program

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 982.306(d) limits the circumstances under which a public housing agency (PHA) may approve the leasing of a unit if the owner of the unit is a close relative of the family.

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

Date Granted: August 11, 2000.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 983.4(a)(3) governs HUD approval of PHA submissions of intent to attach Project based assistance to units.

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

Date Granted: July 20, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. Approval of the waiver permitted applicants on the BHA waiting list to be assisted sooner, since BHA will not be required to hold voucher assistance as long for future Project-based use, and the waiver also permitted improved utilization of BHA voucher funding during the ACC terms of voucher increments consistent with HUD policy to fully use units reserved under the ACC and allocated budget authority.

Project/Activity: A request was made by the Match-E-Be-Nash-Shw-Wish band of Pottawatomi Indians (MBPI), Door, Michigan, to submit their Indian Housing Plan (IHP) to the Eastern Woodlands beyond the due date of July 1, 1999. Start Printed Page 5396

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 1000.214 states that IHPs must be initially sent by the recipient to the Area ONAP no later than July 1. Section 1000.216 states that if the IHP is not initially sent by July 1, the recipient will not eligible for IHBG funds for that fiscal year.

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

Date Granted: August 7, 2000.

Reason Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for the waiver. The MBPI was unable to meet the submission date for the FY 2000 IHP due to circumstances beyond their control. The MBPI was federally recognized on August 23, 1999, and has spent most of the last year working to establish the basic elements for the MBPI's government and organization. Healthcare was the MBPI's first priority, so a health program was established. The small staff was unable to work on housing issues in addition to all other activities. The MBPI can now address the housing issues.
