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 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 October 1, 2003, through December 31, 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). 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 of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would be listed 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. For example, a waiver of both § 58.73 and § 58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under § 58.73.

Waivers of regulations that involve the same initial regulatory citation are in time sequence beginning with the earliest-dated regulatory waiver.

Should HUD receive additional information about waivers granted during the period covered by this report before the next report is published, the next updated report will include these earlier waivers that were granted, as well as those that occurred during January 1, 2004, through March 31, 2004.

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 regulatory waivers, please see the name of the contact person that immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: Request for extension of the submission deadline for the 2002 program year for the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) of Cook County, Illinois.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation at 24 CFR 91.520 requires each grantee to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year.

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

Date Granted: November 18, 2003.

Reason Waived: Cook County's program year ended on September 30, 2003, and therefore its CAPER was due December 29, 2003. The county experienced a hardship beyond its control. A fire occurred in the county building resulting in the relocation of staff to another site where they shared space with other county employees. Because of the contaminants, the staff did not have ready access to files, documents and most equipment. If an extension of the deadline for submission of the CAPER report had been denied, the county would not have been able to submit a complete and accurate expenditure report on its 2002 program. The performance report provides local residents with information on the county's accomplishments during the year, and the report data goes into Start Printed Page 47251HUD's national database, which is used for various reporting purposes. While HUD desires timely reports, it is also interested in ensuring that the performance reports prepared by grantees are complete and accurate.

Contact: Nanci R. Doherty, Special Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-2565.

Project/Activity: Request for extension of the submission deadline for the CAPER of the city of San Angelo, Texas.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation at 24 CFR 91.520 requires each grantee to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year. The city of San Angelo's program year ended on September 30, 2002, and therefore its CAPER was due December 29, 2003.

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

Date Granted: November 18, 2003.

Reason Waived: The city requested an extension of its submission deadline to February 16, 2004. The resignation of a key staff member responsible for preparing the CAPER and the loss of two other staff members, only one of whom could be replaced, left the city with a staff shortage. In addition, the city spent much time providing information to HUD's Office of Inspector General (OIG) regarding a public housing authority investigation, and the city's Community Development office was asked to prepare a response to the OIG report. The city also was asked to provide information to the Department of Labor concerning a labor investigation. Finally, the city's independent auditor was conducting a compliance audit of the city's HOME and CDBG programs. The time that the city spent cooperating with and gathering information for these investigations and audits was extensive and, combined with the staff losses, resulted in the city being unable to expend the time needed to prepare its CAPER. If the request for extension deadline of submission of the CAPER report had been denied, the city would not have been able to submit a complete and accurate expenditure report on its 2002 program. While HUD desires timely reports, it is also interested in ensuring that the performance reports prepared by grantees are complete and accurate.

Contact: Nanci R. Doherty, Special Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-2565.

Project/Activity: Request for extension of submission deadline for the CAPER of the city of Des Plaines, Illinois.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation at 24 CFR 91.520 requires each grantee to submit a performance report to HUD within 90 days after the close of the grantee's program year. The city's program year ended September 30, 2003. Therefore, its CAPER was due December 29, 2003.

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

Date Granted: December 17, 2003.

Reason Waived: The city's letter of December 5, 2003, requested an extension of its submission deadline to February 27, 2004. The city's Community Development Block Grant Coordinator resigned in September 2003. The position was filled on an interim basis in October, but the city required additional time to complete the CAPER because of this change. If an extension of the deadline for submission of the CAPER had been denied, the city would not have been able to submit a complete and accurate performance report on its 2002 program. While HUD desires timely reports, it is also interested in ensuring that the performance reports prepared by grantees are complete and accurate.

Contact: Nanci R. Doherty, Special Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-2565.

Project/Activity: City of Springfield, Ohio—Investment of HOME Funds.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation at 24 CFR 92.502(d)(2) prohibits the investment of additional HOME funds in a project after one year has passed from the date of project completion. The purpose of the prohibition is to ensure that projects are brought up to all applicable standards at the time the HOME-funded work is performed and that HOME funds are not used for on-going maintenance or replacement costs.

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

Date Granted: December 12, 2003.

Reason Waived: Chronic under-occupancy and lack of improvements to the property resulted in multiple sales and eventual foreclosure of the property. The most recent purchaser was willing to rehabilitate and maintain all the HOME-assisted units as affordable units. At HUD's request, the city extended the period of affordability by five years although the additional funding requested in combination with the original investment did not trigger the longer affordability period. The city's efforts to restore the viability of this project over several years, in light of the fact that the regulations permit the restrictions to lapse in the event of foreclosure, constituted good cause for a waiver.

Contact: Nanci R. Doherty, Special Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-2565.

Project/Activity: State of Colorado—Repayment of HOME Funds.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation at 24 CFR 92.503(b) requires the repayment of HOME funds in the event a property does not meet the HOME affordability requirements for the period of time specified in 24 CFR 92.252 or 92.254.

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

Date Granted: October 6, 2003.

Reasons Waived: Due to insufficient rents, the owner was forced to sell a property containing two HOME-assisted units to stabilize the financial viability of its remaining properties. In an effort to avoid repayment of the entire initial HOME investment, the state of Colorado requested the owner to substitute two one-bedroom units in another property, which was not federally subsidized, at rents significantly below the HOME maximum rent for the area. The proposed units were found to be acceptable comparable unit substitution in lieu of repayment, which also advanced HUD's efforts to preserve the availability of affordable housing in the state of Colorado.

Project/Activity: The 400 Apartments, Bismarck, ND; Project Number: 094-35043.

Nature of Requirement: Section 883.606(b) establishes the procedures by which a state agency is entitled to a reasonable fee, determined by HUD, for administering a contract on newly constructed or substantially rehabilitated units, provided there is no override on the permanent loan granted by the agency to the owner for a project containing assisted units.

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

Date Granted: November 4, 2003.

Reason Waived: The North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (Issuer) used override revenue to provide very low-income housing assistance in accordance with its refunding agreement under the McKinney-Vento Act. This revenue is pledged to the bondholders of the Series 1993 Multifamily Mortgage Revenue Refunding bonds as a source of additional security for timely payment of bond principal and interest until the bonds are paid in full. It was determined to be in the public interest and consistent with the Secretary's objectives to waive the appropriate regulation in order to enable the Issuer to continue to pledge fee revenues to its bonds and to rely on these revenues to support its publicly chartered affordable housing operations. The Issuer was therefore permitted to continue to collect override and contract administration fees in connection with its outstanding Series 1993, which were issued with HUD's approval.

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

Date Granted: November 4, 2003.

Reason Waived: The New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority (NHHFA) relied on HUD's approval of proposed bond financing terms submitted by NHHFA in 1991, which terms included permission to collect both override and contract administration fees. Subsequently, Series 1991 Multifamily Start Printed Page 47264Housing Refunding Bonds (the Bonds) were issued pursuant to HUD's financing adjustment factor (FAF) procedures and Section 1012 of the McKinney-Vento Act, which authorizes equal sharing between HUD and housing finance agencies of debt service savings and housing subsidy provided by the housing assistance payments (HAP) contract. It was determined to be in the public interest and consistent with the Secretary's objectives to waive the appropriate regulations in order to enable the Issuer to continue to pledge fee revenues to its bonds and to rely on these revenues to support its publicly chartered affordable housing operations. The Issuer was permitted to continue to collect override and contract administration fees in connection with its outstanding Series 1991 bonds, which were issued with HUD's approval.

III. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Public and Indian Housing

For further information about the following regulatory waivers, please see the name of the contact person that immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

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

Date Granted: November 6, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority requested an extension of time to file a technical review/database adjustment (TR/DBA). The housing authority's Board of Commissioners exercised a 60-day termination clause in its Executive Director's employment contract and terminated the Director's employment with the housing authority.

It was subsequently discovered that the request had not been submitted. An extension of time was therefore granted.

Project/Activity: Jesup Housing Authority, GA066, Jesup, GA.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation establishes certain reporting compliance dates. In accordance with the Single Audit Act and OMB Circular A-133, unaudited financial statements are required to be submitted two months after the fiscal year end of a public housing agency (PHA), and audited financial statements are required no later than 9 months after the PHA's fiscal year ends.

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

Date Granted: November 6, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority did not perform a financial audit for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2002, because the auditor cancelled the audit. The cancellation was attributed to an investigation of the housing authority's former Executive Director by HUD's Office of the Inspector General (OIG). HUD's OIG had the financial data needed for the audit to be submitted. Additional time was needed to complete the audit.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority requested an extension of time to submit its unaudited financial data. The housing authority's Executive Director had misfiled the notification letter stating that the unaudited submission had been rejected and that the authority had until June 26, 2002, to resubmit corrected unaudited financial data. Consequently, it was not until September 2003 that the housing authority realized it had received a late penalty fee for failing to resubmit a corrected unaudited submission and must resubmit its unaudited financial data.

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

Reason Waived: The housing authority requested an extension of time to file its financial data. The housing authority advised that it did not complete the 2002 audited financial resubmission, due on January 23, 2003, because the auditor had retired due to illness.

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

Date Granted: November 19, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority did not fully understand the filing requirements for the financial audited information, because this was its first time filing an audited submission. Therefore, the housing authority failed to complete the submission process by the due date and additional time as needed.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority was unaware that it had to submit audited financial statements, separate from those of the City of Albemarle. This was the first year in which the audited financial submission was due for the housing authority. The housing authority submitted unaudited financial submissions on a timely basis for fiscal years ending 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority did not submit its audited financial statements, because its newly hired accountant was not familiar with the final step in the submission process. The housing authority thought that the audited report had been successfully transmitted in a timely fashion, but later learned that it had not been submitted.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: On April 1, 2003, the housing authority procured auditors for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2003, which was long before the audit due date of December 31, 2003. However, in October 2003, the auditors informed the housing authority that they would be unable to perform the audit. The housing authority needed to procure a new auditor and additional time for the audit to be performed.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

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

Date Granted: November 4, 2003.

Reason Waived: Eleven days prior to the audited submission due date, the Executive Director was asked to resign by the housing authority's Board of Directors because of alleged contract violations among other factors. Because this matter may potentially have affected the housing authority's financial position and operating results for Fiscal Year (FY) 2002, the interim Executive Director and the auditors requested additional time to investigate the matter and to report the housing authority's financial posture for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2002.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

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

Date Granted: November 4, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority requested an indefinite extension of time to submit its audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2002. The housing authority requested an extension of time because of an on-going OIG investigation in which the Texas State Office of Public Housing obtained the housing authority's financial records on March 26, 2003, and turned them over to the OIG on June 27, 2003.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

In accordance with the Single Audit Act and OMB Circular A-133, unaudited financial statements are required to be submitted two months after the fiscal year end of a public housing agency (PHA), and audited financial statements are required no later than 9 months after the PHA's fiscal year ends.

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

Date Granted: December 17, 2003.

Reason Waived: The housing authority requested an extension of time. A new finance officer, who had began employment with the housing authority only a short time before the submission due date, was new to the housing industry and was not familiar with HUD processes. Therefore, the office did not complete the final step in the submission process.

Contact: Judy Wojciechowski, Director, Office of Troubled Agency Recovery, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-4932.

Project/Activity: Garden Homes Estates-Phase I HOPE VI Project, GA06URD002I100/Savannah, GA.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation requires that if the partner or owner entity (or any other entity with an identity of interest with such party) wants to serve as a general contractor for a project or development, the partner or owner entity may award itself the construction contract only if it can demonstrate to HUD's satisfaction that its bid is the lowest submitted in response to a public request for bids.

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

Date Granted: October 31, 2003.

Reason Waived: The waiver of the public bidding requirement was approved in order for Integral Building Group, LLC, whose members are affiliates of Integral Properties, LLC, the project's developer, to complete Phase 1 of the Garden Homes project. The Savannah Housing Authority (SHA) submitted an independent third party cost estimate for the work to be performed by Integral Building Group on Phase 1, which totaled $15,407,230.

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

Date Granted: December 2, 2003.

Reason Waived: The waiver of the public bidding requirement was approved in order for Integral Building Group, LLC, to complete this project.

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

Date Granted: December 3, 2003.

Reason Waived: The waiver of the public bidding requirement cases was approved in order for Thrush Construction, Inc., to serve as General Contractor of the Jazz on the Boulevard project.

Project/Activity: Pershing Court, Phase 1A (formerly Stateway Gardens) Mixed Finance Project No. IL06-P002-223/Chicago, IL.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation requires that if the partner and/or owner entity (or any other entity with an identity of interest with such parties) wants to serve as a general Start Printed Page 47279contractor for a project or development, the partner or owner entity may award itself the construction contract only if it can demonstrate to HUD's satisfaction that its bid is the lowest submitted in response to a public request for bids.

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

Date Granted: December 17, 2003.

Reason Waived: The waiver of the public bidding requirement was approved in order for Walsh Construction Company to serve as General Contractor for Phase 1A of the Pershing Court project. The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) submitted an independent third party cost estimate from Tishman Construction Corporation for the work, which totaled $11,647,000.

Contact: Milan Ozdinec, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Public Housing Investments, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 401-8812.

Project/Activity: Dallas, Texas, FY1998 Roseland Homes HOPE VI Grant, Phase IX, Hall Street Corridor.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation requires that a public housing authority use an open and competitive process to select a partner or owner entity to develop a mixed-finance project containing public housing units.

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

Date Granted: December 11, 2003.

Reason Waived: Dallas Housing Authority (DHA) presented compelling arguments that the development effort would be greatly enhanced by involvement of the selected non-profit partner. DHA demonstrated that the award of a contract through competitive means would be infeasible, because the item is available only from a single source. DHA would be unable to procure any other developer with similar experience and commitment to the Roseland community or who would be able to offer site control of the land parcels providing essential links within the community.

Project/Activity: Boston Housing Authority (BHA), Boston, MA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability.

Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary For Public And Indian Housing.

Date Granted: December 22, 2003.

Reason Waived: The BHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation in order to select homeless persons who have a serious and persistent mental illness that is severe enough to interfere with one or more activities of daily living to occupy units that will receive project-based voucher assistance for occupancy of a project at 34 Algonquin Street. The waiver was granted because the BHA demonstrated that separate housing and services provided at 34 Algonquin Street would enable the target population to have the same opportunity as others to enjoy the benefits of secure affordable housing. Without units designated for members of the target population, they would not be able to maintain their position on BHA's tenant-based or project-based waiting list, because they do not have a fixed address, do not understand materials sent to them, and are frequently hospitalized. The target population also would not be successful in the housing search process, even if a voucher were issued, due to the stigma inappropriately associated with mental illness and the need for supportive services.

Contact: Gerald Benoit, Director, Housing Vouchers Management and Operations Division, Office of Public Housing and Voucher Programs, Office of Public and Indian Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 4210, Washington, DC 20410-5000, telephone (202) 708-0477.

Project/Activity: Huntsville Housing Authority (HHA), Huntsville, AL.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability.

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

Date Granted: December 22, 2003.

Reason Waived: HHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation to select persons with mental illness or mental retardation, as verified by a health care professional, to occupy units that will receive project-based voucher assistance at Castlewood Apartments. In 2001 and 2002, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit State Qualified Allocation Plans administered by the Alabama Housing Finance Authority (AHFA) required that a project receiving a tax credit allocation would designate no fewer than 10 percent of the units for individuals with mental illness or mental retardation (with additional points for 15 percent or more). This requirement stemmed from a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between AHFA and the Department of Mental Health/Mental Retardation (DMH/MR) in which the agencies agreed to require this designation in any project that received an allocation of tax credits from AHFA in 2001 and 2002. The MOU was a result of the settlement by the state of Alabama of a lawsuit entitled Wyatt v. Sawyer in which the state agreed to eliminate approximately 600 long-term care beds from DMH/MR facilities for the treatment of mental illness or mental retardation. DMH/MR's remedy to replace those beds was the preference requirement for such individuals in projects receiving tax credit allocations from AHFA. The waiver was limited to no more than 15 percent (rounded up) of the units, equivalent to six of the 37 existing units in the project.

Project/Activity: Eufaula Housing Authority (EHA), Eufaula, AL.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability.

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

Date Granted: December 12, 2003. Start Printed Page 47280

Reason Waived: EHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation to select persons with mental illness or mental retardation, as verified by a health care professional, to occupy units that will receive project-based voucher assistance at Covington Way and Carrington Place. In 2001 and 2002, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit State Qualified Allocation Plans administered by AHFA required that a project receiving a tax credit allocation would have no less than 10 percent of the units designated for individuals with mental illness or mental retardation (with additional points for 15 percent or more). This requirement stemmed from an MOU between AHFA and DMH/MR in which the agencies agreed to require this designation in any project that received an allocation of tax credits from AHFA in 2001 and 2002. The MOU was a result of the settlement by the state of Alabama of a lawsuit entitled Wyatt v. Sawyer in which the state agreed to eliminate approximately 600 long-term care beds from DMH/MR facilities for the treatment of mental illness or mental retardation. DMH/MR's remedy to replace those beds was the preference requirement for such individuals in projects receiving tax credit allocations from AHFA. The waiver was limited to no more than 15 percent (rounded up) of the units, or two of the 10 units of new construction in each project.

Project/Activity: BHA, Boston, MA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability, such as HIV/AIDS.

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

Date Granted: December 11, 2003.

Reason Waived: BHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation in order to select families eligible for Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) families to occupy units at Seton Manor. Since by law only persons with HIV/AIDS may occupy units developed with HOPWA funds, a public housing agency may only authorize occupancy of such units by persons with HIV/AIDS, even if the units also receive project-based voucher assistance. Therefore, in selecting families to refer to the owner for occupancy of these units, BHA would have had to pass over persons on its waiting list until it reached a person with HIV/AIDS interested in moving into one of the units at Seton Manor.

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

Date Granted: December 12, 2003.

Reason Waived: HHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation to select persons with mental illness or mental retardation, as verified by a health care professional, to occupy units designated for project-based voucher assistance at Sunrise Garden Apartments. In 2001 and 2002, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit State Qualified Allocation Plans administered by AHFA required that a project receiving a tax credit allocation would have no less than 10 percent of the units designated for individuals with mental illness or mental retardation (with additional points for 15 percent or more). This requirement stemmed from an MOU between AHFA and DMH/MR in which the agencies agreed to require this designation in any project that received an allocation of tax credits from AHFA in 2001 and 2002.

DMH/MR's remedy to replace those beds was the preference requirement for such individuals in projects receiving tax credit allocations from AHFA. The waiver was limited to no more than 15 percent (rounded up) of the units, or two of the eight units of new construction in the project.

  • Regulation: 24 CFR 982.207(b)(3) and Section II, subpart E, of the January 16, 2001, Federal Register notice, Revisions to PHA Project-Based Assistance (PBA) Program; Initial Guidance.

Project/Activity: BHA, Boston, MA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant-selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability.

Section II, subpart E, of the January 16, 2001, Federal Register notice, Revisions to PHA Project-Based Assistance (PBA) Program; Initial Guidance, requires that all new project based assistance agreements or HAP contracts be for units in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 20 percent. The law requires that a contract for project-based assistance only be approved by a PHA if it is consistent with the goal of deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic opportunities.

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

Date Granted: December 22, 2003.

Reason Waived: BHA requested a waiver of the selection preference requirements in 24 CFR 982.207(b)(3) in order to select homeless persons who have a serious and persistent mental illness that is severe enough to interfere with one or more activities of daily living to occupy units that will receive project-based voucher assistance at 131 Ziegler Street. BHA demonstrated that separate housing and services provided at 131 Ziegler Street would enable the target population to have the same opportunity as others to enjoy the benefits of secure affordable housing. Without units designated for members of the target population, they would not be able to maintain their position on the BHA's tenant-based or project-based waiting list because they did not have a fixed address, did not understand materials sent to them, and were frequently hospitalized. The target population also would not be successful in the housing search process, even if a voucher were issued, due to the stigma inappropriately associated with mental illness and the need for supportive services.

Approval of the exception to deconcentration was granted, since the project is located in a HUD-designated Empowerment Zone, the purpose of which is to open new businesses, and create jobs, housing, and new educational and healthcare opportunities for thousands of Americans.

  • Regulation: 24 CFR 982.207(b)(3) and Section II, subpart E, of the January 16, 2001, Federal Register notice, Revisions to PHA Project-Based Assistance (PBA) Program; Initial Guidance.

Project/Activity: St. Paul Public Housing Agency (SPPHA), St. Paul, MN.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3), which governs tenant selection under the project-based voucher program, states that a housing agency may adopt a preference for admission of families that include a person with disabilities, but may not adopt a preference for persons with a specific disability. Section II, subpart E, of the initial guidance requires that in order to meet the Department's goal of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic opportunities, the projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 20 percent.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: SPPHA requested a waiver of the selection preference regulation in order to select families eligible for Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) to occupy units that will receive PBA at Martin Luther King Court, as well as an exception to the initial guidance, since the project is located in census tracts with poverty rates of 20.66 percent, 20.72 percent, and 22.75 percent. Start Printed Page 47284

Approval to waive selection preference requirements was granted since eight units in this project were developed with HOPWA funds and none will receive rental or operating subsidy under the HOPWA program. Since by law only persons with HIV/AIDS may occupy units developed with HOPWA funds, a public housing agency may only authorize occupancy of such units by persons with HIV/AIDS, even if the units also receive PBA.

Approval of the exception for deconcentration was granted since the first two duplexes are in the St. Paul Enterprise Community and the last duplex is less than one block from its southern border and should derive the same benefits. The purpose of establishing enterprise communities is to open new businesses and create jobs, housing, and new educational and healthcare opportunities for thousands of Americans. These goals are consistent with the goal of deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic opportunities.

Project/Activity: Fall River Housing Authority (FRHA), Fall River, MA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.505(d) allows a PHA to approve a higher payment standard within the basic range for a family that includes a person with a disability as a reasonable accommodation in accordance with 24 CFR part 8.

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

Date Granted: November 26, 2003.

Reason Waived: FRHA requested a special exception payment standard that exceeds 120 percent of the fair market rent as a reasonable accommodation for a disabled housing choice voucher program participant. The waiver was granted to allow two disabled housing choice voucher participants to lease in place because they had established relationships with neighbors and friends who had been supportive. Building management had also been supportive by building a handicap ramp, establishing automatic door openers with personalized controllers, and installing low pile carpeting to make movement of their wheelchairs less burdensome in their apartments. If they had been required to move, it would have been extremely disruptive, not only to their personal and support connections, but also to their physical and mental well-being.

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

Date Granted: December 8, 2003.

Reason Waived: HAWC requested a special exception payment standard that exceeds 120 percent of the fair market rent as a reasonable accommodation for a disabled housing choice voucher program participant. The waiver was granted to allow a disabled housing choice voucher participant to lease the proposed unit because her doctors believed that the proposed apartment unit would best accommodate her disabilities, based on environmental surroundings, familiarity, security, and its larger size. The participant was struggling to maintain her personal independence while caring for herself, and her doctors believed that the apartment unit would allow her to preserve and improve her quality of life.

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

Date Granted: December 10, 2003.

Reason Waived: CHA requested an exception payment standard that exceeds 120 percent of the fair market rent as a reasonable accommodation for a housing choice voucher participant for a manufactured home space rental. The participant suffers from a mental condition that causes severe depression and paranoia. The waiver was granted to allow the housing choice voucher participant to remain at her current location, to maintain a stable lifestyle, and live independently.

Nature of Requirement: Section 982.505(d) allows a PHA to approve a higher payment standard within the basic range for a family that includes a person with a disability as a reasonable accommodation in accordance with 24 CFR part 8.

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

Date Granted: December 12, 2003.

Reason Waived: HCHC requested an exception payment standard that exceeds 120 percent of the fair market rent as a reasonable accommodation for a housing choice voucher participant with a disability who relies on a wheelchair. The Housing Choice Voucher program participant was the head of the household and was a person with a disability who relies on a wheelchair. The unit in question was wheelchair accessible. According to the Commission only three percent of the units in this area were accessible. In addition, the Commission had been advised by the participant's doctor that relocation from his current unit would be detrimental to his health and possibly cause life-threatening deterioration.

Project/Activity: El Dorado County Housing Authority (EDHA), Placerville, CA.

Nature of Requirement: Section 983.3(a)(2) requires that the units to be project-based not be under a tenant-based or project based housing assistance payments (HAP) contract or otherwise committed, e.g., vouchers issued to families searching for housing or units under a HAP contract.

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

Date Granted: November 19, 2003.

Reason Waived: EDHA requested a waiver of requirements regarding the availability of vouchers for project-based assistance, so that it could enter into an agreement for a HAP contract for White Rock Village. At the time EDCHA had a turnover rate of approximately eight vouchers per month. There were 42 vouchers that had project-based assistance attached at White Rock Village. EDCHA's intention was to stop issuing turnover vouchers in the six months immediately preceding the date anticipated for HAP contract execution to ensure that vouchers would be available for this project and that over-leasing will not occur.

Project/Activity: Housing Authority of the City of Tampa (HACT), Tampa, FL.

Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II, subpart E, of the initial guidance requires that, in order to meet the Department's goal of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic opportunities, the projects be in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 20 percent.

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

Date Granted: October 20, 2003.

Reason Waived: HACT requested a waiver of the competitive selection of owner proposals and an exception to the initial guidance to permit it to attach project-based assistance to the Oaks at Riverview located in a census tract with a poverty rate of 34 percent. Approval to waive competitive selection was granted, since the owner/developer, a team of three firms (Mid City Urban, Henson Development company and Russell New Urban Development), was competitively selected by the HACT to develop its HOPE VI units. Approval of the exception for deconcentration was granted, since the project will be a 250-unit new construction development that is part of a HOPE VI revitalization plan to replace 360 demolished public housing units of Riverview Terrace and Tom Dyer Homes. Of the 250 units at the Oaks at Riverview, 45 will receive project-based assistance and 205 units will be public housing. In addition to the units at Oaks at Riverview, the revitalization plan for the site consists of 96 homeownership units, of which 36 will be marketed to families participating in the housing choice voucher homeownership program and 60 will be market rate.

Project/Activity: Harrisburg, PA, Housing Authority.

Nature of Requirement: Under 24 CFR 990.107 and 990.109, the Operating Fund Formula energy conservation incentive, which relates to energy performance contracting, applies to only PHA-paid utilities.

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

Date Granted: October 31, 2003.

Reason Waived: The Harrisburg Housing Authority has resident-paid utilities. The housing authority requested permission to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments that have resident-paid utilities. The housing authority estimated that it could increase energy savings substantially, if it were able to undertake energy performance contracting for its resident-paid utilities. In September 1996, the Oakland Housing Authority was granted a waiver to permit the authority to benefit from energy performance contracting for developments with resident-paid utilities. The waiver was granted on the basis that the authority had presented a sound and reasonable methodology for doing so. In 2003, the Harrisburg Housing Authority requested a waiver based on the same approved methodology. The waiver permits the housing authority to exclude from its 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.
