SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 11, 1995, HUD published a final rule (60 FR 47260) that removed from Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations any regulation determined unnecessary or obsolete. Among the numerous changes, HUD removed Appendix A from 24 CFR part 1. The regulations in 24 CFR part 1 implement the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d—2000d-7), which provides that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Appendix A was a list of HUD's programs that provide federal financial assistance and, therefore, are subject to the nondiscrimination provisions of Title VI and 24 CFR part 1.

In the September 11, 1995, final rule, HUD determined that Appendix A was unnecessary because no regulatory requirement is included in Appendix A and because the information can be provided through other non-rulemaking means. To that end, HUD is publishing, and will publish periodically, a list of HUD programs that are subject to the provisions of Title VI. In November 2004, when HUD most recently republished the List of Federally Assisted Programs, a reference to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (23 U.S.C.) was not included. Section 504 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability and is being included in this new publication because all of the programs listed herein are also subject to Section 504. This notice is provided for information and reference; therefore, applicability of Title VI and Section 504 and the Title VI and Section 504 implementing regulations is not affected by inclusion in or omission from this list.
