I. Background

On November 1, 2006 (71 FR 64422), HUD published a final rule establishing regulations for the Good Neighbor Next Door (GNND) Sales Program. The GNND Sales Program seeks to improve the quality of life in distressed urban communities by encouraging law enforcement officers, teachers, and firefighters/emergency medical technicians, whose daily responsibilities and duties reflect a high level of public service commitment and represent a nexus to the needs of the community, to purchase and live in homes in these communities. The November 1, 2006, final rule, codified the GNND Sales Program regulations at 24 CFR part 291, subpart F.

II. Need for Correction

It has come to HUD's attention that the regulatory text of the November 1, 2006, final rule contained a typographical error regarding properties available for sale under the GNND Sales Program. The preamble to the final rule correctly makes clear that occupied properties, properties located in Asset Control Areas, and properties that HUD determines will be sold through an alternative sales method will not be made available for purchase under the GNND Sales Program (see 61 FR 64422, third column). However, due to typographical error regarding the closing of a parenthetical, § 291.510(b) of the regulatory text (entitled “Eligible properties”) incorrectly provides that:

Under the GNND Sales Program, single-unit properties acquired by HUD located in HUD-designated revitalization areas (except occupied properties), those located in Asset Control Areas, or those that HUD has determined will be sold through an alternative sales method will be made available to interested law enforcement officers, teachers, and firefighters/emergency medical technicians prior to listing the properties for sale to other purchasers.

Rather than ending after the phrase “occupied properties,” the parenthetical should close at the end of the list of excluded properties after the phrase “those that HUD has determined will be sold through an alternative sales method.” The purpose of this document is to make the necessary correction to § 291.510(b).
