On May 28, 1997 (62 FR 28889), the Secretary delegated to the President, Ginnie Mae the authority to execute in the name of the Secretary certain written instruments relating to Section 312 Rehabilitation Loans, including but not limited to: Deeds of release, quit claim deeds and deeds of reconveyance; substitutions of trustees; compromises; write-offs; close outs; releases related to insurance policies; assignments or satisfactions of notes, mortgages, deeds of trust and other security instruments; and any other 2 written instruments or documents related to, or necessary for, servicing or collection of a Section 312 loan, including any such instrument related to Section 312 loan servicing-related property management and disposition functions that were not delegated to the Assistant Secretary for Housing. The May 28, 1997 delegation of authority also authorized the President, Ginnie Mae, to redelegate this authority.

This notice published in today's Federal Register revokes the delegation of authority to the President, Ginnie Mae, that was published on May 28, 1997 (62 FR 28889). This action is necessary because the Office of Community Planning and Development's Section 312 loans have been sold and the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae) is no longer involved in servicing Section 312 loans.

Today's Federal Register notice does not affect delegations of authority to the Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development and to the Assistant Secretary for Housing—Federal Housing Commissioner.
