On page 27316, Section VI.C.1, second and third paragraphs, center column, HUD is clarifying the recording requirements using the Logic Model.

On page 27316, Section VI.C.1., second and third paragraphs, center column, HUD is clarifying the recording requirements using the Logic Model to read as follows:

“1. The Program Outcome Logic Model (Form HUD-96010) must be completed indicating the proposed measures against the proposed activities/output and proposed outcome(s) for the appropriate year. The proposed measures should be entered in the “Pre” column of the form. The Logic Model has been designed to clearly identify the stages of the development process and it must present a realistic annual projection of outputs and outcomes that demonstrates your full understanding of the development process. Using the “Year One” through “Year Three” tabs on the Logic Model, you must demonstrate your ability to ensure that the proposed measures will result in the timely development of your project. To provide for greater consistency in reporting, you must include all activities and outcomes excepted per year of the period of performance. Note: The reported outcome of an identified activity/output may be realized in a different year.

The Logic Model will capture information in two stages. Stage one will demonstrate your ability to develop the project within the required timeframe. This stage will capture data that relates to initial closing, construction, and final closing. Stage one will require the submission of a completed form HUD-96010, Logic Model on an annual basis, beginning with the date of the Agreement Letter and concluding with the date of Final Closing. At the time of the Project Planning Conference, HUD and the applicant will finalize the services and activities in association with this Logic Model and the development timeline. On an annual basis, applicants will report against the finalized logic model by documenting the achieved measures in the “Post” column. (Note: Applicants are not required to complete the YTD (year-to-date) column.) The final reporting requirement for the Logic Model will require that the applicant use the “Total” worksheet to fully document the activities and outcomes as well as the associated measures that have occurred during the period of performance. In addition, a response to each of the program management evaluation questions is required at time of final report.

The second stage will require the Owner to submit a completed form HUD-96010, Logic Model on an annual basis, beginning one year after the date of the final logic model submission that was required in stage one and concluding at the conclusion of the mortgage. Stage two will require the Owner to document the services/activities that are made available to Start Printed Page 32594tenants and the expected outcomes and measures of such services.”
