SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

On July 16, 2001 (66 FR 37098), HUD published a notice announcing its intent to establish a negotiated rulemaking committee for the purpose of negotiating a proposed rule that would revise the allocation formula used under the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Program. The establishment of the committee will offer Indian tribal governments the opportunity to have input into any changes determined to be necessary to improve the distribution of funds under the IHBG Program. Section IV. of the July 16, 2001 notice (entitled “Tentative Schedule”) contained a typographical error regarding the tentative date and locale of the first negotiated rulemaking committee meeting. Specifically, the notice contained a notation to insert the approximate date and location of the meeting, but did not provide the necessary information. The purpose of this document is to make the necessary correction.

At this time, HUD has not yet determined the date or location of the first committee meeting. Once determined, HUD will provide advance notice of the meeting through Federal Register notice. All meetings of the negotiated rulemaking committee will be open to the public without advance registration. Public attendance may be limited to the space available. Members of the public will be provided the opportunity to make statements during the meeting, to the extent time permits, and file written statements with the committee for its consideration. In the event that the date and time of these meetings are changed, HUD will advise the public through Federal Register notice.
