SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act added a new section 7(q) to the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 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 waivers of regulations granted by HUD from April 1, 2003, through June 30, 2003. 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 regulatory section of title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that is 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 24 CFR 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, 2003, through September 30, 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: Ramsey County, MN, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.

Waiver Request: A waiver to allow Ramsey County to provide CDBG funds to Beaver Creek Carriage Homes for the rehabilitation of the exterior of the buildings in the complex.

Nature of Requirement: Section 570.208(a)(3) provides that eligible activities carried out for the purpose of providing or improving permanent residential structures will be considered to benefit low- and moderate-income households to the extent they are occupied by such households.

Granted By: Nelson A. Bregon, General Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Date Granted: June 26, 2003.

Reasons Waived: Information provided by Ramsey County concludes that after conducting a survey of the residents in the complex, from the data collected, more than 51 percent of the units in these multiple residential buildings, that are not rental buildings, are occupied by low- and moderate-income households. Therefore, HUD allowed a waiver under the authority of 24 CFR 5.110 based on a determination of good cause to waive the requirement Start Printed Page 63915at 24 CFR 570.208(a)(3) to allow the county to use CDBG funds for a loan to the Beaver Creek Carriage Homes Association for the rehabilitation of the exterior and common area of three non-rental residential buildings under common ownership and management, 62 percent of which are occupied by low- and moderate-income households. The funds for the low-interest loan will minimize the cost to the unit owners and the association to complete the major improvements necessary to maintain the safety, integrity, and habitability of these housing units.

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: All Officer Next Door/Teacher Next Door (OND/TND) program participants who have been called to active duty status nationwide.

Nature of Requirement: The Department of Housing and Urban Development is permitting a special accommodation relative to its OND/TND program. The program provides police officers and teachers the opportunity to purchase HUD-owned homes at a significant discount. Among the conditions for participation, police officers and teachers must agree to occupy the property as their primary residence for a mandatory three-year period following the closing date of the sale. Under the terms of the OND/TND contract, participants who do not satisfy the residency requirement must refund a prorated portion of the discount to HUD. Those OND/TND borrowers who are called to active duty at posts outside the commuting area of their hometowns may be unable to satisfy the occupancy requirement. For these individuals, HUD will credit all time served on active duty against the three-year occupancy period. Any person in the “military service” as defined in the determined to be eligible for relief under the provisions of the “Sailors and Soldiers Civil Relief Act of 1940,” may request the special accommodation.

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

Date Granted: June 25, 2003.

Reason Waived: The waiver provides authority to provide a credit of time for participants in the OND/TND Program, reducing the program occupancy requirement to the time served on active duty military service at a post outside the program participants' hometown commuting area. This waiver recognizes the importance of the service rendered by our military personnel as well as the impossibility of performance of the occupancy period when a military service member is ordered to a post away from home.

Project/Activity: Sphinx at Murdeaux Villas, Dallas, TX; Project Number: 113-35188.

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 proceeds for the subject property.

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

Date Granted: April 17, 2003.

Project/Activity: Airport Road Townhomes, Snohomish County, WA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 203.43f of HUD's regulations sets forth the eligibility criteria for mortgages covering manufactured homes. Section 234 of HUD's regulations sets forth the eligibility requirements for insurance of individual units in a condominium project. Section 234.1(a) incorporates by reference various provisions of 24 CFR part 203 Subpart A, of the regulations concerning the eligibility requirements of mortgages covering one-to-four-family dwellings under Section 203 of the National Housing Act. Section 234.1(a) also lists specific provisions that are not applicable to mortgages insured under Section 234. Section 203.43f, related to the insurance of mortgages on manufactured homes, is one of the exclusions listed under section 234.1(a).

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

Date Granted: May 2, 2003.

Reason Waived: Among the primary reasons manufactured homes were initially excluded from eligibility for mortgage insurance as part of condominium projects were concerns about the durability of individual homes and the product's inconsistency with traditional configurations of the early condominium projects (typically garden or high-rise construction). The homes to be developed at Airport Road Townhomes have undergone extensive engineering analyses, first to comply with the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards and then to obtain HUD approval of an Alternate Construction request, which was granted to the manufacturer on December 11, 2000. With the current state of the art and the extensive engineering review, concerns about the durability of this product is minimal.

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

Date Granted: April 18, 2003.

Reason Waived: The HA requested a waiver (extension of time) to submit its audited financial data. The Bernalillo County Housing Department is a component of Bernalillo County.

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

Date Granted: June 9, 2003.

Reason Waived: HA requested a waiver (extension of time) to file its Management data. HA received a Late Presumptive Failure (LPF) score of zero out of 30 points and Troubled Designation. The HA's request indicates that significant criminal activity on the premises caused on August 22, 2002, and November 26, 2002, created a distraction during the period the Management Operations Assessment Sub System (MASS) submission was due. HA also indicated that it changed its email addresses, but did not notify REAC of the change and did not receive late notices sent by REAC.

Granted By: Paula Blunt, General Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.

Date Granted: June 9, 2003.

Reason Waived: The HA's appeal request was treated as a waiver (extension of time) to file its financial data.

The audited financial data was due September 30, 2002, but submitted to REAC on November 13, 2002. A memorandum from the external auditor to REAC indicated that while the HA fully cooperated during the course of the audit, the auditor was at fault for the late filing.

Granted By: William Russell, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Housing and Voucher Programs.

Date Granted: June 23, 2003.

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