Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Rural Housing Service, USDA.

ACTION:

Interim final rule; delay of effective date.

SUMMARY:

The Rural Housing Service is delaying implementation of selected sections of the interim final rule published on November 26, 2004 (69 FR 69032-69176). The interim final rule contains requirements regarding citizenship eligibility about which the Agency received several comments. The comments suggested that Agency procedures unnecessarily imposed more requirements than those required under the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) procedures for similar programs. As a result the Agency has decided to delay implementation of the sections listed below in order to harmonize its procedures with HUD under 42 U.S.C. 1436a.

DATES:

The effective date for §§ 3560.152(a)(1), 3560.154(a)(7), 3560.156(c)(12), and 3560.254(c)(3) are delayed indefinitely from February 24, 2005, until the Agency publishes an effective date in a future Federal Register.
