SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 26, 2001 (66 FR 11638), HUD published its Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 Super Notice of Funding Availability (SuperNOFA) for HUD's Housing, Community Development, and Empowerment Programs and Section 8 Housing Voucher Assistance. The FY 2001 SuperNOFA announced the availability of approximately $2.75 billion in HUD program funds covering 45 grant categories within programs operated and administered by HUD offices and Section 8 housing voucher assistance.

This notice published in today's Federal Register makes certain corrections and clarifications to the General Section of the SuperNOFA and to the funding availability announcements of the following programs: Economic Development Initiative (EDI); Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI); HOPE VI; Housing Counseling; Youthbuild; Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency (ROSS) Program, Assisted Living Conversion Program, Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program and Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Program.

Summary of Technical Corrections

A summary of the technical corrections that will be made by this document are as follows: The page numbering shown in bracket identifies where the individual funding availability announcement that is being corrected can be found in the February 26, 2001 SuperNOFA, and the page numbering in parentheses identifies where the specific language that is being corrected can be found in the February 26, 2001 SuperNOFA.

General Section of SuperNOFA [Page 11636]

HUD corrects the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Numbers (CFDA) for the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program on the chart at page 11643 and the Healthy Homes Demonstration and Education Program at page 11644. The CFDA for the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program should be 14.900. The CFDA for the Healthy Homes Demonstration and Education Program should be 14.901.

HUD also amends Section II (Requirements and Procedures Applicable to All Programs) by adding paragraph (L) to make the SuperNOFA consistent with Executive Order 13202 entitled, “Preservation of Open Competition and Government Neutrality Towards Government Contractors' Labor Relation on Federal and Federally Funded Construction Projects” (page 11652).

HUD also corrects Appendix A-2, List of EZs, ECs, Urban Enhanced Enterprise Communities, Strategic Planning Communities, (page 11658) to accurately reflect an Empowerment Zone in Upper Manhattan/Bronx (the Empowerment Zone was included, and the address was correct but was not identified as “Upper Manhattan/Bronx”) and to add the Strategic Planning Community in Brooklyn (page 11661). A certification that should have been filed with an application for this strategic planning community may still be filed and will be treated as a technical deficiency. Start Printed Page 27988

Housing Counseling [Page 11841]

HUD amends paragraph (A)(2) of Section VIII (Application Submission Requirements) to correct the fiscal year referenced in the section. More specifically, HUD is requesting information for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 1999 and ending September 30, 2000. (See page 11849). This section is also being corrected to note that applicants that did not participate in the Housing Counseling program during FY 2000 should report their counseling workload during this period. (See page 11849). HUD is also correcting paragraph (A)(3) of Section VIII (Application Submission Requirements) to inform applicants that they do not need to use the budget worksheet that HUD has provided in the past to submit their proposed budgets. (See page 11849).

HOPE VI [Page 11913]

HUD corrects the cross reference in paragraph (B)(2)(b)(ii) of Section II (Amount Allocated). (See page 11917). HUD amends Rating Factor 2, paragraph (2)(a) of Section VI (Revitalization Application Selection Process) in which the maximum number of points under the Impact on Neighborhoods was correctly listed as totaling 7 points, but the discussion of the factor indicates that the maximum number of points “you will receive is 4 to 6 points.” (See page 11931). HUD also amends Rating Factor 3, paragraph (7) of Section VI (Revitalization Application Selection Process) to make it consistent with Executive Order 13202 entitled, “Preservation of Open Competition and Government Neutrality Towards Government Contractors' Labor Relation on Federal and Federally Funded Construction Projects.” Specifically, HUD is eliminating the current reference to union sponsored apprenticeship programs and substituting “registered apprenticeship programs.” The correction also defines registered apprenticeship programs as programs that have been “registered with either a State Apprenticeship Agency recognized by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT) or, if there is no recognized State agency, by the BAT.” (See page 11934).

Economic Development Initiative (EDI) [Page 12015]

HUD corrects Rating Factor 2, paragraph (2)(b)of Section V (Application Selection Process) in which the maximum number of points under the Unemployment sub-factor were correctly listed as totaling 15 under “Rating Factor 2: Distress/Extent of the Problem”, but the examples that followed incorrectly totaled a maximum of 10 points. (See page 12023).

Brownfields Economic Development Initiative (BEDI) [Page 12033]

HUD corrects section identifier errors in Rating Factor 2, Section V (The Application Selection Process) at page 12040. HUD also corrects Rating Factor 2, paragraph (2)(b) of Section V (Application Selection Process) in which the maximum number of points under the Unemployment sub-factor were correctly listed as totaling 15 under “Rating Factor 2: Distress/Extent of the Problem”, but the examples that followed incorrectly totaled a maximum of 10 points. (See page 12040).

Youthbuild [Page 12055]

HUD corrects the asterisked footnote to line 12 of exhibit 4A, Total Youthbuild Grant Budget, (page 12071) to note that administrative costs, consistent with Section III (A)(7) of the Youthbuild NOFA (page 12058), may not exceed 10 percent of the grant award. HUD also corrects Form 2C 13a: Housing Project Certification for Residential Rental Units, cited in Section IV(E) (Application Selection Process), to publish both pages of this required form. (See page 12075).

Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency (ROSS) Program [Page 12081]

HUD extends the due date for Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) applying for funding under the ROSS Capacity Building and Conflict Resolution initiative to June 20, 2001. HUD also clarifies the eligibility requirements for Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) applying for funding under the ROSS Capacity Building and Conflict Resolution initiative at page 12082.

Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance [Page 12207]

HUD corrects the chart in Appendix A that addresses “Eligible Populations” under the Section 8 SRO program. (See, page 12218). The chart should delete the second bullet providing “Section 8 eligible current occupants.” This correction conforms the program to the McKinney-Vento Act, which limits eligibility to homeless individuals, and Section IV (A)(1) (Program Requirements) of the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance NOFA at page 12212.

Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) [Page 12223]

HUD amends Section VI(A) (Application Submission Requirements) to correct a typographical error. Item 10 should read “Enter 14-241” and not “Enter 14-21.” (See page 12235). HUD also corrects Appendix D, the HOPWA Project Information Form, to reflect the 2001 Continuum of Care competition and not the 2000 competition. (See page 12255). Specifically, Part B of the HOPWA Project Information Form requires an applicant or project sponsor to indicate whether it is seeking funding under this HOPWA competition for an activity that is duplicated in an application under the HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance 2001 competition. Additionally, HUD corrects paragraph 3 of Appendix D, HOPWA Applicant Certifications to provide that “It will not acquire, rehabilitate, convert, lease, repair or construct property to provide housing or commit HUD, State, local or other funds to program activities with respect to any eligible property until it has obtained HUD approval of form HUD-7015.15, “Request for Release of Funds and Certification” of compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and implementing regulations at 24 CFR part 58 (Environmental Review Procedures for Entities Assuming HUD Environmental Responsibilities) or, in cases where HUD has performed the environmental review, the Applicant has obtained HUD approval of the site following HUD's completion of form HUD-4128.” (See page 12265).

Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Program [Page 12267]

HUD adds to the list of deficiencies that will be considered curable in a Section 202 application, the Exhibit 7(j), Certification of Consistency with the EZ/EC Strategic Plan (Form HUD 2990), but only in connection with applications involving sites in Brooklyn, New York, in the jurisdiction of the New York Multifamily Hub (see “Exhibits” under Section V on page 12276.) This change is necessary since Brooklyn was not included in the list of EZs, Ecs, Urban Enhanced Enterprise Communities, and Strategic Planning Communities for New York, New York in Appendix A-2 to the General Section of the SuperNOFA. As a result, applicants, proposing sites in this location will not otherwise have had sufficient time to obtain the necessary signature on Exhibit 7(j) in advance of the application deadline date. (See “Exhibits” under Section V on page 12276.) Start Printed Page 27989

Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons With Disabilities [Page 12301]

HUD adds to the list of deficiencies that will be considered curable in a Section 811 application, the Exhibit 7(j), Certification of Consistency with the EZ/EC Strategic Plan (Form HUD 2990), but only in connection with applications involving sites in Brooklyn, New York, in the jurisdiction of the New York Multifamily Hub (see “Exhibits” under Section V on page 12310.) This change is necessary since Brooklyn was not included in the list of EZs, Ecs, Urban Enhanced Enterprise Communities, and Strategic Planning Communities for New York, New York in Appendix A-2 to the General Section of the SuperNOFA. As a result, applicants, proposing sites in this location will not otherwise have had sufficient time to obtain the necessary signature on Exhibit 7(j) in advance of the application deadline date.

Assisted Living Conversion Program (ALCP) for Eligible Multifamily Projects [Page 12339]

HUD corrects the e-mail address for a contact persons on page 12341, second column, under the fifth full paragraph. HUD also amends paragraph (B)(11) of Section III (Program Description: Eligible and Ineligible Applicants, Developments and Activities) for clarity. (See page 12343). HUD also corrects paragraph (D) of Section III (Program Description: Eligible and Ineligible Applicants, Developments and Activities) to clarify the eligibility of Section 236 developments. (See page 12343).

Applicants may also provide data for the overall jurisdiction alongside comparable jurisdictions in the county and state, as appropriate to the activity, in order to demonstrate the various levels of distress in context. This means that an application that provides data that show levels of distress in the project area and the jurisdiction expressed as a percent greater than the national average will be rated higher under this Factor.
