SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

By previous delegation, the Secretary of HUD delegated to the Assistant Secretary of FHEO, with certain exceptions, the authority to act under Title I, Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5309). (See 41 FR 15359, April 12, 1976.) The provisions of Section 109 are implemented through HUD's regulations in 24 CFR part 6. (See also 24 CFR 6.3, in which the “Responsible Official” is defined as the Assistant Secretary for FHEO (or the Assistant Secretary's designee)).

On August 4, 2003, the Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) redelegated the Assistant Secretary's authority under Section 109, as provided in 24 CFR 6.10 and 6.11, to the General Deputy Assistant Secretary of FHEO. The General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO further redelegated these authorities to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs, Director of the Office of Enforcement, and to the FHEO Hub Directors. Since then, FHEO has created an Office of Systemic Investigations. Further, the FHEO Hub Directors' titles have been changed to FHEO Region Directors.

Accordingly, in this redelegation, the Assistant Secretary for FHEO revokes the August 4, 2003 and all other previous delegations and retains and redelegates the authority to act as the “Responsible Official” under Title I Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, and its implementing regulations subject to certain exceptions.
