Specifically, the notice: (1) Clarifies the requirement for applicants to reduce energy costs, (2) clarifies the requirement for font size; (3) clarifies the requirement that the page limit is four pages for rating factor 2, and (4) corrects a posting error that resulted in the Tables 1 and 2 being misprinted in the posted document. The notice making these corrections is available on Web site​apply/​forms_​apps_​idx.html. A link to is also available on the HUD Web site at​offices/​adm/​grants/​fundsavail.cfm.

To permit applicants time to prepare applications that take into account these changes, HUD is extending the application submission deadline for the FY2009 SHOP NOFA until September 28, 2009.
