SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As part of 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 (2 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 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; and

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.

This notice follows procedures provided in HUD's Statement of Policy on Waiver of Regulations and Directives issued on April 22, 1991 (56 FR 16337). This notice covers HUD's waiver-grant activity from April 1, 2002, through June 30, 2002. 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 that appears in title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations and 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 during July 1, 2002, through September 30, 2002.

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 contact person who immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: The State of Wisconsin requested a waiver of the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) Deadline.

Nature of Requirement: Section 91.520(a) requires each grantee to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year. The State of Wisconsin's program year ended on March 31, 2002; thus, its CAPER was due on June 30, 2002. The state requested an extension of its submission deadline until September 30, 2002.

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: June 6, 2002.

Reasons Waived: While HUD desires timely reports, it is also interested in ensuring that the performance reports prepared by grantees are complete and accurate. Therefore, under the authority of 24 CFR 91.600, the requirements of 24 CFR 91.520(a) were waived and the State of Wisconsin was given an extension to September 30, 2002, to submit its 2001 CAPER to HUD.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project/Activity: Washington County Consortium in Texas requested a waiver of the pre-award costs requirements set forth at 24 CFR 92.212(b) of the HOME regulations. Start Printed Page 63203

Nature of Requirements: Section 92.212(b) provides that administrative and planning costs may be incurred at the beginning of the participating jurisdiction's consolidated program year, or the date the Consolidated Plan is received by HUD, whichever is later. Such costs may be charged to the HOME allocation after its award, provided the costs meet the statutory and regulatory requirements of the HOME program.

Granted by: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: April 29, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The Department found that the need of the Washington County Consortium to develop and execute various documents to complete the process of becoming a participating jurisdiction constitutes good cause for a waiver to permit the county to incur pre-award costs for eligible HOME planning and administrative activities. The waiver granted covers those costs incurred in forming the consortium and developing the Consolidated Plan that are incurred after the date the consortium notifies HUD of its intention to participate in the HOME program. The waiver is consistent with the provisions of 24 CFR 570.200(h)(1)(i) of the Community Development Block Grant regulations which authorize new grantees to incur pre-award costs for the development of the first Consolidated Plan.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project Activity: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on behalf of Boston Aging Concerns Young and Old United, Inc. (BAC-YOU) and its “GrandFamilies House” in Dorchester, Massachusetts, requested a waiver of the HOME rent requirements.

Nature of Requirement: Section 92.252(a) provides for the use of Section 8 fair market rents in HOME units if the units are occupied by a head-of-household caring for grandchildren if three conditions are met. First, a qualified family receiving Section 8 tenant-based rental assistance must occupy the unit. Second, the rent for the unit must not exceed the fair market rent for comparable units in the area. Third, additional revenue from the higher rent must be expended for improved affordable housing for the grandfamilies.

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: May 22, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The Department determined that 18 high HOME rent units in the BAC-YOU- GrandFamilies House satisfy the three conditions required by Section 215 of National Affordable Housing Act. Good cause for waiver exists because the revenue generated by the waiver enables BAC-YOU- to enhance the services provided by the GrandFamilies House to its residents. The waiver was granted to permit BAC-YOU- to charge the Section 8 rent in the 18 high HOME rent units in the GrandFamilies House. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requested that the waiver be granted retroactively to the date of the statutory amendment. The Department does not grant retroactive waivers. The waiver was granted prospectively only.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project/Activity: DeKalb County, Georgia, requested a waiver for the City of Decatur of the HOME regulation requiring participating jurisdictions to use the Single Family Mortgage Limits.

Nature of Requirement: Section 92.254(a)(2)(iii) of the HOME regulation requires participating jurisdictions to use the Single Family Mortgage Limits established under Section 203(b) of the National Housing Act to determine maximum after rehabilitation value of the single family homeownership units assisted with HOME funds. As an alternative to the Section 203(b) limits, HOME regulations at 24 CFR 92.254 (a)(2)(iii) allow participating jurisdictions to perform a local market survey to determine 95 percent of the median area purchase price for single-family housing; this figure then serves as the maximum value limit for single family homeownership units.

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: May 10, 2002.

Reasons Waived: Dekalb County requested a waiver to permit it to use the survey data of the City of Decatur to establish 95 percent of median area purchase price for the single-family housing located in the city instead of using county-wide survey data. The remainder of the county will continue to use the Section 203(b) Single Family Mortgage Limit. There is good cause to grant the waiver because DeKalb County has documented a significant disparity in the value of housing between the City of Decatur and the rest of the county. The waiver applies to the City of Decatur's owner occupied rehabilitation program. The county must resubmit a survey of sales prices within the city to HUD annually.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project Activity: The State of Kansas requested a waiver to allow two HOME-assisted Elder Cottage Housing Opportunity (ECHO) units to be relocated to the site of a multifamily housing project for the developmentally disabled.

Nature of Requirement: Section 92.258(a) states that ECHO units are to be designed to be installed adjacent to existing single-family dwellings. The regulations at 24 CFR 92.258(d)(1) also state that, “only one ECHO unit may be provided per host property.”

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Dated Granted: May 10, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The Department found that there was good cause to grant this waiver because doing so will preserve the availability of affordable housing in Kansas. The Department considers this arrangement between the Northeast Kansas Community Action Program and Achievement Services to be acceptable given that eligible persons will occupy the units and the units will maintain their affordability.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project/Activity: The State of Iowa requested waiver of the repayment requirement of the HOME Investment Partnerships Program final rule.

Nature of Requirement: Section 92.503(b) requires that a participating jurisdiction must repay HOME funds invested in housing that does not meet the affordability requirements for the period specified. While the period of affordability for the original house will not be met, the participating jurisdiction is proposing to substitute a larger unit that better suits the needs of the occupants and that satisfies all HOME requirements for the remaining period of affordability.

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: April 9, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The Department determined that there was good cause for the waiver because the interest of the low-income residents will be protected and the objective of the HOME program will continue to be met.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

  • Regulations: 24CFR 570.206(g).

Project/Activity: The City of Moorhead, Minnesota, requested a waiver so that the city could pay eligible administrative costs to facilitate the development of 34 units of affordable rental housing.

Nature of Requirement: Section 570.206(g) provides that assistance under this part of the regulation is limited to units that are identified in the grantee's HUD approved housing assistance plan (HAP). In as much as the Consolidated Plan includes non-housing activities and is not exclusively limited to low- and moderate-income persons, the Department determined that 24 CFR 570.206(g) cannot be read as only allowing a substitution costs related to the Consolidated Plan for costs formerly eligible in connection with the HAP. However, if a specific activity is construed to include a HAP-type of implementing activity for costs statutorily permitted, the Department is willing to consider a waiver of 24 CFR 570.206(g) to permit the expenditure of Community Start Printed Page 63204Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for administrative expenses designed to facilitate the development of housing.

Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: April 12, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The use of CDBG funds in this instance, to pay for pre-development costs related to the development of 34 units of affordable rental housing, is a HAP type of implementing activity for costs statutorily permitted. If a waiver is not approved and the city is unable to raise the funds to provide the required local funding for this project, these affordable rental housing units would be lost. This would create an undue hardship and adversely affect the purposes of the program because there is a need for these housing units for low-and-moderate income households, therefore a waiver was granted.

Contact: Cornelia Robertson-Terry, Office of Community Planning and Development, Room 7152, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-2565, extension 4556.

Project/Activity: Miami Dade Housing Agency (MDHA) and Carrfour Corporation of Miami, Florida, requested a waiver of the current Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Fair Market Rent (FMR) for the Little Haiti Gateway SRO project.

Nature of Requirement: Section 882.408(b) provides that, with Field Office approval, a public housing agency (PHA) may 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: Roy A. Bernardi, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: April 18, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The provision of 24 CFR 882.408(b) which allows pre-agreement exception rents to be approved only on an area-wide basis has been waived. The reasons are: MDHA has been working since 1993, when the project was conditionally approved, to bring this project to completion. The ACC was effective on June 1, l995. During the last six years there have been many obstacles that have caused project delays. The delays included change in owner, change in sites, obtaining financial resources, and change in developer. When the original owner was unable to develop the project, MDHA initiated a request for proposals process for a new owner and Carrfour was selected in March 1997, to develop the Little Haiti project. Carrfour identified a site but the site fell through since the owner of the property, which was occupied, failed to obtain consent of the beneficiaries within the prescribed time frame. Therefore, another site had to be located and this took approximately six months. The change in sites affected the use of acquisition funds allocated by the State for the project. The funds originally set aside for the other proposed site had to be reprogrammed for the new site, which took over two years.

II. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Housing

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

Project/Activity: W.H. Block Building, Indianapolis, IN; Project Number: 073-35552.

Nature of Requirement: Section 200.54(a) establishes the procedures for a pro-rata disbursement of the mortgagor's front money escrow funds and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured mortgage proceeds for the subject property.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: April 9, 2002.

Reason Waived: Since the front money escrow is so large, the insured proceeds would not be disbursed for 6 to 8 months after initial endorsement, resulting in payment of extension fees to the investors who purchased the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA) mortgage-backed securities. Providing a waiver of 24 CFR 200.54(a) will permit the Indianapolis Multifamily Hub to approve a pro-rata disbursement of front money and mortgage proceeds, thereby allowing the mortgagee not to pay GNMA extension fees.

Contact: Michael McCullough, Director, Office of Multifamily Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-1142.

Project/Activity: Clyburn Apartments, Denver, CO; Project Number: 101-35555.

Nature of Requirement: Section 200.54(a) establishes the procedures for a pro-rata disbursement of the mortgagor's front money escrow funds and FHA insured mortgage proceeds for the subject project.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 20, 2002.

Reason Waived: Since the front money escrow is so large, the insured proceeds would not be disbursed for several months, resulting in the payment of extension fees to the investors who purchased the GNMA mortgage-backed securities. Providing a waiver of 24 CFR 200.54(a) will permit the Denver Hub to approve a pro-rata disbursement of front money and mortgage proceeds, thereby allowing the mortgagee not to pay GNMA extension fees.

Contact: Michael McCullough, Director, Office of Multifamily Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-1142.

Project/Activity: The Villas at Metro Center Apartments, Nashville, TN; Project Number: 086-35273.

Nature of Requirement: Section 200.54(a) establishes the procedures for a Pro-rata Disbursement of the Mortgagor's Front Money Escrow Funds and FHA insured mortgage proceeds for the subject property.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: June 21, 2002.

Reason Waived: Since the front money escrow is so large, the insured proceeds would not be disbursed for several months, resulting in payment of extension fees to the investors who purchased the GNMA mortgage-backed securities. Providing a waiver of 24 CFR 200.54(a) will permit the Nashville Multifamily Program Center to approve a pro-rata disbursement of front money and mortgage proceeds, thereby allowing the mortgagee not to pay GNMA extension fees.

Contact: Michael McCullough, Director, Office of Multifamily Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-1142.

Project/Activity: Housing Authority of the City of Spokane (SHA), Spokane, WA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 203.42(a) prohibits the placing of FHA mortgage insurance on any rental property if the property is part of a project, subdivision, or group of rental properties in which the mortgagor has a financial interest in eight or more dwelling units.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 20, 2002.

Reason Waived: The waiver allowed the Housing Authority of the City of Spokane, Washington, to acquire and sell, using FHA mortgage insurance, sixty newly constructed homes to low- and moderate-income homebuyers under a lease purchase option program called “The Welcome Home Program.”

Contact: Vance T. Morris, Director, Office of Single Family Program Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-2121.

Project/Activity: Mortgagee, First Mortgage Corporation of Diamond Bar, California.

Nature of Requirement: Section 203.49(c) provides that lenders may extend the initial interest rate adjustment dates on ARM loans to any time within a 12 to 18 month window thus rendering the loans eligible for placement in GNMA pools. Ineligibility of the loans for delivery to GNMA would result in financial hardship to the mortgagee and will not have an adverse impact on any mortgagors.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 29, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Corporation requested extensions of the initial change date for four ARM loans beyond the 12-18 month window period as required by 24 CFR 203.49(c). Start Printed Page 63205Approving the waiver enabled the lender to scrutinize the loans and rendered them no harm to the borrowers or the Department.

Contact: Vance T. Morris, Director, Office of Single Family Program Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone (202) 708-2121.

Project/Activity: Predatory Lending Assistance/St. Ambrose Housing Aid, Baltimore, MD.

Nature of Requirement: Section 203.674(b) (1) specifies that occupants must make timely request for occupied conveyance. Section 203.675 sets out the requirements for adequate notice to occupants of pending acquisition. Section 203.676 identifies the required time frames for occupants to request occupied conveyance. Section 203.677 pertains to time frames for HUD's written decision to allow occupied conveyance. Section 203.678 references time frames for borrowers to request occupied conveyance.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: April 16, 2002.

Reason Waived: These regulations were waived in order to allow the Department to accept occupied conveyance of up to 20 properties in Baltimore that were determined to be impacted by predatory lending schemes. Occupied conveyance will facilitate and expedite a direct sale of the properties to St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center which will supervise rehabilitation and resell or lease the properties back to borrowers who were victims of predatory lending.

Contact: Joe McCloskey, Director, Office of Single Family Asset Management, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-1672.

Project/Activity: Church Manor, Smithfield, VA; Project Number: 051-35012.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) governs the repayment of assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, requiring that assistance paid to project owners must be repaid at the earlier of the expiration of the term of the mortgage, termination of mortgage insurance, prepayment of the mortgage or at sale of the project.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: June 10, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Richmond Multifamily Program Center requested waiver of this regulation in order to subordinate the Flexible Subsidy financing following the refinancing/rehabilitation of the subject property through Low Income Housing Tax Credits and non-FHA insured loans. The owner requested permission to make a payment toward the Flexible Subsidy loan and the subordinate the remainder following the refinancing/rehabilitation of the property. If the waiver was not granted, the owner would not have funds to repay the Flexible Subsidy loan and would not be able to close on the new financing package, thereby losing the opportunity to improve this much needed affordable rural housing for the low-income citizens of Smithfield.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Nature of Requirement: Single-Purpose Corporation. Section 891.205 requires that Section 202 project owners be single-purpose corporations.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: April 8, 2002.

Reason Waived: The project will be built adjacent to the sponsor's existing Section 202 project and one owner-entity would promote greater service provision as well as coordinated administrative maintenance.

Project/Activity: TWB Residential Opportunities II, Port Jefferson Station, NY; Project Number: 012-HD093/NY36-Q991-004.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulation at 24 CFR 891.310(b)(1) and (b)(2) requires that all entrances, common areas, units to be occupied by resident staff, and amenities must be readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities.

Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: April 30, 2002.

Reason Waived: The project consists of four group homes for the independent living of the chronically mentally ill, each serving three residents. The sites will be designed to allow one bedroom and all common spaces in one home to be fully accessible. To make all 12 units fully accessible for persons with mobility impairments would make the project financially infeasible. The sponsor has indicated that less than 5 percent of the individuals that are served under their programs require accessible housing. Therefore, accessibility of the one site is more than adequate for potential residents.

Project/Activity: Hampton Woods Retirement and Hampton Woods II, Jackson, NC; Project Numbers: 053-EH469 and 053-EE009.

Nature of Requirement: Section 891.410(c) limits occupancy to very low income elderly persons, i.e., households of one or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age at the time of initial occupancy. Section 5.110 relates to admission of families to projects for elderly or handicapped families that received reservations under Section 202 of the Housing Act of 1959 and housing assistance under Section 8 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937.

Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: April 8, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Greensboro Multifamily Hub requested an age waiver for the subject project because the current occupancy level of eligible persons and families does not support successful operation of the projects. This waiver would allow the project owner/management agent to rent units to persons between the ages of 55 and 62 years of age with or without disabilities, thus, allowing the owner flexibility in renting up these vacant units. This waiver is in effect for one year from date of approval.

Project/Activity: Friendship Community Care, Clarksville, AR; Project Number: 082-HD048.

Nature of Requirement: Section 891.410(c) limits occupancy to very low income elderly persons, i.e., households of one or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age at the time of initial occupancy. Section 5.110 relates to admission of families to projects for elderly or handicapped families that received reservations under Section 202 of the Housing Act of 1959 and housing assistance under Section 8 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937.

Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 14, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Little Rock Multifamily Program Center requested waiver of the income requirements for the subject property because the property has only maintained an 88 percent occupancy rate since receiving permission to occupy in December 2000. The project has no waiting list and only 16 of the 18 units are occupied. Granting this waiver would allow flexibility to market to low-income families and enable property management to lease the vacant units and start a waiting list. This waiver is effective for one year from date of approval.

Contact: Beverly J. Miller, Director, Office of Asset Management, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410-7000; telephone: (202) 708-3730.

Project/Activity: Echo Valley Village, Pittsburgh, NH; Project Number: 024-EE040.

Nature of Requirement: Section 891.410(c) limits occupancy to very low-income elderly persons, i.e., households of one or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age at the time of initial occupancy. Section 5.110 relates to admission of families to projects for elderly or handicapped families that received reservations under Section 202 of the Housing Act of 1959 and housing assistance under Section 8 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937.

Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 22, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Manchester Multifamily Program Center requested waiver of the age and income requirements for the subject property. The owner/management agent of the subject project has requested permission to waive the elderly and low-income requirements to alleviate the current occupancy and financial problems the property is experiencing. The property will be allowed to rent to the non-elderly, disabled, and handicapped between the ages of 55 and 62 years and allow the applicants to meet the low-income eligibility requirements. This waiver will attempt to rent up vacant units and allow the property to operate successfully. This waiver is effective for one year from date of approval.

Project/Activity: Sugarloaf Village, Diamond City, AR; Project Number: 082-EE091.

Nature of Requirement: Section 891.401(c) limits occupancy to very low income elderly persons, i.e., households of one or more persons at least one of whom is 62 years of age at the time of initial occupancy. Section 5.110 relates to admission of families to projects for elderly or handicapped families that received reservations under Section 202 of the Housing Act of 1959 and housing assistance under Section 8 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937.

Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing—Federal Housing Commissioner.

Date Granted: May 23, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Fort Worth Multifamily Hub requested an age waiver for the subject project because the current occupancy level will not support the project. Vacant units will be marketed to people between the ages of 55 and 62 with or without disabilities. Providing for a waiver of the elderly and handicapped requirements will allow the owner additional flexibility to rent up units. This waiver is in effect for one year from the date of approval.

Project/Activity: Houma Housing Authority, Houma, LA; LA48DEP0900199/ Public Housing Drug Elimination Program.

Nature of Requirement: Request for waiver of 24 CFR 761.30(b) to allow an extension of time to implement the subject grant activities. Start Printed Page 63217

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: May 13, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Houma Housing Authority (HHA) was designated a troubled performer on December 21, 2001. HHA was transferred to the jurisdiction of the Memphis Troubled Agency Recovery Center (TARC) effective January 25, 2002. Upon being transferred, it was noted that the 1999 Public Housing Drug Elimination Program (PHDEP) Grant funds had not been obligated due to the ongoing investigation by the Local District Attorney and HUD's investigation by the Office of Inspector General hindered the draw down of funds. Medical absences of an Executive Director delayed implementation of selected PHDEP projects. The Executive Director was eventually terminated by the Board of Directors on November 18, 2001.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary, Office of Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: May 1, 2002.

Reason Waived: The waiver was granted to allow the housing authority to use the balance of the grant for reimbursement for services rendered and to cover grant related administrative expenses. There was a misunderstanding of the grant expenditure deadline and requests for draw down of funds from the Line of Credit Control System (LOCCS) were put on HUD Field Office review.

Contact: Sonia L.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: April 16, 2002

Reason Waived: Approval of the waiver was granted to allow a housing choice voucher participant with disabilities to lease her current unit, which rents for an amount that exceeds 120 percent of the fair market rent.

Project/Activity: Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA), Akron, Ohio; Project-based Assistance (PBA) Program. The AMHA requested a waiver of the regulation and an exception to the initial guidance to permit the AMHA to attach PBA to 97 units in Callis Tower, a 277-unit elderly building in a 551-unit Section 236 project, Channelwood. The project is located in a census tract with a poverty rate of 32 percent.

Nature of Requirement: Section 983.7(c)(4) prohibits the use of PBA in a Section 236 project.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Real Estate and Housing Performance Division, Office of Public and Assisted Housing Delivery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 4210, Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-0477.

Project/Activity: New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority (NHHFA), Bedford, New Hampshire; Project-based Assistance Program. The NHHFA requested a waiver of the aforementioned program regulation to allow for the selection of units for project-based assistance that were competitively selected for tax credits and units selected under the NHHFA's Multifamily Housing Production Initiative Program without requiring HUD review and approval of a written selection policy and without advertising for a competitive selection of units under the project-based program.

Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51(a) and (b) require HUD review and approval of a written selection policy and advertisement for the competitive selection of units to receive project-based assistance.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: April 1, 2002.

Reason Waived: The waiver was granted based on the urgent need for affordable rental housing in New Hampshire and the NHHFA's desire to use project-based assistance for high-ranking proposals under its Multifamily Housing Initiative Program and for projects that were competitively selected for low-income housing tax credits.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Real Estate and Housing Performance Division, Office of Public and Assisted Housing Delivery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 4210, Washington, DC 20410; telephone: (202) 708-0477.

Nature of Requirement: Section II subpart F of the initial guidance requires that unless waived, no more than 25 percent of the dwelling units in any building may be assisted under a housing assistance payments (HAP) contract for PBA except for dwelling units that are specifically made available for elderly families, disabled families and families receiving supportive services.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: April 19, 2002.

Reason Waived: The exception was approved to allow for the attachment of project-based assistance to 100 percent of the units.

  • Regulation: Section II subpart E of the January 16, 2001, Federal Register Notice, Revisions to PHA Project-based Assistance Program; Initial Guidance.

Project/Activity: Burlington Housing Authority (BHA), Burlington, Vermont; Project-based Assistance (PBA) Program. The BHA requested an exception to the aforementioned requirement to permit attachment of project-based assistance to units in a census tract with a poverty rate of greater than 20 percent.

Nature of Requirement: Section II subpart E requires that all new PBA agreements or housing assistance payments contracts be for units in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 20 percent.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: June 12, 2002.

Reason Waived: The poverty rate in the census tract at issue is 22 percent. The development is located in the same census tract as the University of Vermont. College students have an over-riding impact on the income characteristics of the census tract. If the college age individuals are excluded from the calculation, the census tract poverty rate drops to approximately 8 percent. In light of the unusual skew in the poverty rate data as a result of the University population living in the census tract, the commitment of public funds, the expansion of housing opportunities, and the education opportunities, the request for an exception was granted.

Project/Activity: Augusta, GA, Housing Authority. A request was made to permit the authority to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments that have resident-paid utilities. The housing authority estimates that it could increase energy savings substantially if it were able to undertake energy performance contracting for both its PHA-paid and resident-paid utilities.

Nature of Requirement: Under 24 CFR Part 990, Operating Fund Formula energy conservation incentive that relates to energy performance contracting currently applies to only PHA-paid utilities. The Augusta Housing Authority has both PHA-paid and resident-paid utilities.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: May 3, 2002.

Reason Waived: In September 1996, the Oakland Housing Authority was granted a waiver to permit the housing authority to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments with resident-paid utilities. The waiver was granted on the basis that the Authority presented a sound and reasonable methodology for doing so. The Augusta Housing Authority requested a waiver based on the same approved methodology. The waiver permits the housing authority to exclude from its Performance Funding System calculation of rental income the increased rental income due to the difference between updated baseline utility allowances (before implementation of the energy conservation measures) and revised allowances (after implementation of the measures) for the project(s) involved for the duration of the contract period, which cannot exceed 12 years.

Project/Activity: Nondalton Tribal Council's submission of an Indian Housing Plan (IHP) for FY 2002 funding made available under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation notifies Indian tribes not located on a reservation, including each Alaska Native village, regional Indian tribe, regional corporation, or its tribally designated housing entity (TDHE) that they must notify HUD in writing by September 15 each year whether it or its TDHE intends to submit an IHP. If an Alaska Native village notifies HUD that it does not intend either to submit an IHP or to designate a TDHE to do so, or if HUD receives no response from the Alaska Native village or its TDHE, the formula data which would have been credited to the Alaska Native village will be credited to the regional Indian tribe, or if there is no regional Indian tribe, to the regional corporation.

Granted By: Mr. Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary, Office of Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: June 7, 2002.

Reason Waived: The Alaska Office of Native American Programs may not have received the Tribe's notification of intent to submit an IHP by the deadline due to the state of affairs surrounding September 11, 2001, and the Tribal Administrator's medical condition.
