The Rural Housing and Economic Development program was authorized by the Department of Veteran's Affairs, Housing and Urban Development and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 1999. The competition was announced in the SuperNOFA published February 26, 2001 (66 FR 12187). Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in that Notice.

The Rural Housing and Economic Development Program is designed to build capacity at the State and local level for rural housing and economic development and to support innovative housing and economic development activities in rural areas. Eligible applicants are local rural non-profit organizations, community development corporations, Indian tribes, and State housing finance agencies. The funds made available under this program will be awarded competitively, through a selection process conducted by HUD in consultation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Prior to the rating and ranking of this year's applications, Butler County Rural Electric Cooperative in Allison, Iowa was awarded $600,000 as a result of a funding error during the previous year's funding. For the Fiscal Year 2001 competition, a total of $24,042,487 was awarded to 111 projects nationwide.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.250.

In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987. 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the grantees and amounts of the awards in Appendix A to this document.
