FEMA announces a technical correction to 44 CFR 206.435. The final rule entitled Disaster Assistance; Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (Subpart N) was published on August 30, 1990, at 55 FR 35532. Changes to the rule at § 206.434 were subsequently published on February 26, 2002, at 67 FR 8844. These changes resulted in § 206.434 redesignating Minimum project criteria from paragraph (b) to (c).
