SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 October 1, 2002, through December 31, 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 January 1, 2003, through March 31, 2003.

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: A recipient of grant funds from HUD's Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) requested a waiver of the conflict of interest disclosure provision.

Nature of Requirement: This provision requires the grantee to disclose the nature of the conflict of interest, accompanied by an assurance that there has been public disclosure of the conflict and a description of how the public disclosure was made. This provision requires the grantee to publish the name of the person seeking the assistance and confidential health records regarding the individual.

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

Date Granted: October 28, 2002.

Reasons Waived: HUD determined that there was good cause for granting the waiver to protect the name of the person seeking the assistance and the confidential medical information regarding the person seeking assistance. However, HUD did not waive the other factors/requirements in 24 CFR 574.625(b)(1) that must be considered prior to granting the exception. In addition, Section 7(q)(3) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act requires HUD to Start Printed Page 16903publish notice in the Federal Register of all waivers of regulations approved by HUD. Because of the possibility that the publication of this waiver could be used to identify the affected individual, HUD will publish the waiver request without identifying the grantee.

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 city of Clinton, IA, requested a waiver of the provisions governing the obligation and expenditure of Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) funds.

Nature of Requirement: Section 576.35(a)(1) requires each state to make available to its state recipients all emergency shelter grant amounts that it was allocated within 65 days of the date of the grant award by HUD. Funds set aside by a state for homeless prevention activities must be made available to state recipients within 180 days of the grant award. Section 576.35 (a)(2)(i) requires each state recipient of ESG funds to have its grant funds obligated within 180 days of the date on which the state made the grant amounts available to state recipients. In the case of grants for homeless prevention activities, state recipients are required to obligate grant amounts within 30 days of the date on which the state has made the grant amount available. Section 576.35(a)(2)(ii) requires each state recipient to spend all of its grant amounts within 24 months of the date on which the state made the grant amounts available to the state recipient. In the case of grants for homeless prevention activities, state recipients must spend such sums within 180 days of the date on which the state made the grant amount available.

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

Date Granted: November 22, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The state suspended the city of Clinton's receipt of ESG funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 and FY 2002 to prevent any reoccurrences of violations by the Victory Center Rescue Mission. This delayed the program until HUD could determine that the recipient could continue to receive ESG funding with the state's continued oversight.

Project/Activity: Alameda County, CA, requested a waiver of the eight percent administrative cap for its 1996 Shelter Plus Care grant.

Nature of Requirement: Section 582.105(e) allows the grantee to expend up to eight percent of the grant amount to pay the costs of administering the housing assistance.

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

Date Granted: November 18, 2002.

Reasons Waived: The waiver is granted because the county will be able to serve the same number of households that was originally anticipated for an additional period of time with no increase in funds. The county will be allowed to expend an additional five percent for a total of thirteen percent of its grant for administrative costs. The grant was expected to assist 35 households at a time. However, the grant has assisted approximately 63 households over the course of the grant. The county intends to serve the same number of households that was originally anticipated for an additional period of time with no increase in funds.
