The Emergency Capital Repair Grants Program is authorized by Section 202(b) of the Housing Act of 1959 (12 U.S.C. 1701q-2). Section 202b was amended to provide grants for “substantial capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects with elderly tenants that are needed to rehabilitate, modernize, or retrofit aging structures, common areas or individual dwelling units.”

On May 22, 2006, at 71 FR 29538, HUD published a notice, entitled “Emergency Capital Repair Grants for Multifamily Housing Projects Designated for Occupancy by the Elderly,” which announced the availability of approximately $30 million in grant funds to make emergency capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects designated for occupancy by elderly tenants. HUD accepted applications on a first-come, first-serve basis and awarded emergency capital repair grants until available amounts were expended. A notice of funding awards announcing Emergency Capital Repair Grant funding decisions made by the Department in Fiscal Year 2006 was published on April 3, 2007, at 72 FR 15896. The amount awarded in FY 2006 was less than the total amount made available in the May 22, 2006, notice, and the Department has continued to make awards on a first-come, first-serve basis in FY 2007. This notice announces the additional funding decisions under the May 22, 2006, notice made by the Department in Fiscal Year 2007.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.315.

The Emergency Capital Repair Grant is designed to provide funds to make emergency capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects owned by private nonprofit entities designated for occupancy by elderly tenants. The capital repair needs must relate to items that present an immediate threat to the health, safety, and quality of life of the tenants. The intent of these grants is to provide one-time assistance for emergency items that could not be absorbed within the project's operating budget and other project resources.

A total of $12,454,999 was awarded to 53 projects and 5,698 units. In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the grantees and amounts of the awards in Appendix A of this document.
