Need for Correction

Correction of Publication
In the interim rule document published November 26, 2004, (69 FR 69032-69176), make the following correction.
On page 69034, third column, revise the “Discussion of the Interim Final Rule” section to read as follows:
Discussion of the Interim Final Rule
This interim final rule combines the provisions of the Streamlining and Consolidation of the sections 514, 515, 516, and 521 Multi-Family Housing (MFH) Programs Proposed Rule published on June 2, 2003, and the Operating Assistance for Off-Farm Migrant Farmworker Projects Proposed Rule published on November 2, 2000.
RHS is issuing this regulation as an interim final rule, with an effective date 90 days after publication in the Federal Register, given that these regulatory changes are very extensive, affect all aspects of the programs, and seek to achieve significant streamlining of the programs' regulatory provisions. Delaying implementation of the rule to allow more time for further consideration would not be in the best interest of the direct MFH program or its recipients. All provisions of this regulation are adopted on an interim final basis, are subject to a 30-day comment period, and will remain in effect until the Agency adopts a final rule.Start Signature
