This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On January 22, 2007, HUD published in the Federal Register (72 FR 2732) final guidance to help recipients of federal financial assistance take reasonable steps to meet their regulatory and statutory obligations to ensure that LEP persons have meaningful access to HUD programs and activities (LEP Final Guidance). Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI) and its implementing regulations, recipients of federal financial assistance have a responsibility to ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by LEP persons.
In the preamble to the Final Guidance, which provided responses to public comments received on the proposed guidance, HUD provided the Web site to demographic information based on 2000 Census or other data (see page 2736, third column and continuing on page 2737, first column). Since publication of the Final Guidance, HUD has been advised that the Web site provided in the Final Guidance is no longer active. This notice provides the updated Web site. The demographic information based on 2000 Census or other data can be found at the following Web site: http://www.census.gov/cac/www/007578.html.
In addition to this correction, on February 14, 2007, the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) published in the Federal Register a correction to HUD's Final Guidance that corrected a printing error made by the OFR in publishing HUD's Final Guidance on January 22, 2007 (See 72 FR 7134.) On February 16, 2007, HUD published a notice that moved the effective of the Final Guidance from February 21, 2007, to March 7, 2007.
HUD's Final Guidance, which incorporates these corrections, can be found at: http://www.hud.gov/offices/fheo/promotingfh/lep.cfm.Start Signature
