SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act added a new section 7(q) to the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(q)), which provides that:

1. Any waiver of a regulation must be in writing and must specify the grounds for approving the waiver;

2. Authority to approve a waiver of a regulation may be delegated by the Secretary only to an individual of Assistant Secretary or equivalent rank, and the person to whom authority to waive is delegated must also have authority to issue the particular regulation to be waived;

3. Not less than quarterly, the Secretary must notify the public of all waivers of regulations that HUD has approved, by publishing a notice in the Federal Register. These notices (each covering the period since the most recent previous notification) shall:

a. Identify the project, activity, or undertaking involved;

b. Describe the nature of the provision waived and the designation of the provision;

c. Indicate the name and title of the person who granted the waiver request;

d. Describe briefly the grounds for approval of the request; and

e. State how additional information about a particular waiver may be obtained.

Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act also contains requirements applicable to waivers of HUD handbook provisions that are not relevant to the purpose of this notice.

This notice follows procedures provided in HUD's Statement of Policy on Waiver of Regulations and Directives issued on April 22, 1991 (56 FR 16337), as revised and updated by the notice issued on December 17, 2008 (73 FR 76674). In accordance with those procedures and with the requirements of section 106 of the HUD Reform Act, waivers of regulations are granted by the Assistant Secretary with jurisdiction over the regulations for which a waiver was requested. In those cases in which a General Deputy Assistant Secretary granted the waiver, the General Deputy Assistant Secretary was serving in the absence of the Assistant Secretary in accordance with the office's Order of Succession.

This notice covers waivers of regulations granted by HUD from July 1, 2009 through September 30, 2009. For ease of reference, the waivers granted by HUD are listed by HUD program office (for example, the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, the Office of Housing, and the Office of Public and Indian Housing, etc.). Within each program office grouping, the waivers are listed sequentially by the regulatory section of title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that is being waived. For example, a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would be listed before a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 570.

Where more than one regulatory provision is involved in the grant of a particular waiver request, the action is listed under the section number of the first regulatory requirement that appears in 24 CFR and that is being waived. For example, a waiver of both § 58.73 and § 58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under § 58.73.

Waiver of regulations that involve the same initial regulatory citation are in time sequence beginning with the earliest-dated regulatory waiver.

Should HUD receive additional information about waivers granted during the period covered by this report (the third quarter of calendar year 2009) before the next report is published (the fourth quarter of calendar year 2009), HUD will include any additional waivers granted for the second quarter in the next report.

Accordingly, information about approved waiver requests pertaining to HUD regulations is provided in the Appendix that follows this notice.

Granted By: Mercedes Marquez, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.

Reason Waived: The Town of Union requested an additional 15 days to submit a new application meeting HUD's program requirements.

On May 14, 2009, the Town of Union also requested a waiver of any prohibition on funding this kind of activity. On July 2, 2009, HUD wrote to the Town of Union indicating that its request for a waiver of the eligible activities under the Notice was still under review. On July 9, 2009, the Town of Union requested an additional 15 days to resubmit an approvable application containing eligible activities should HUD both disapprove its application and deny its waiver request. On July 14, 2009, HUD: (1) Disapproved the HPRP application based upon the ineligibility of the proposed funding of furnaces for elderly Start Printed Page 69473people; and (b) denied the request for a waiver of the Notice's eligible activity standards to permit the funding of furnaces for elderly persons. The timing of HUD's application disapproval and the denial of the waiver request came too late for the Town of Union to effectively revise and resubmit a new HPRP application within the remaining time available under the original 15-day resubmission period.

Project/Activity: Lakeview Towers, Chicago, Illinois—FHA Project Number 071-10021/071-35743. The property has 500 units comprised of two 25-story high rise towers. The property is in need of rehabilitation to continue as a well-maintained source of affordable housing.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) (1995) of FHA's regulations, which governs the repayment of operating assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, states: “Assistance that has been paid to a project owner under this subpart must be repaid at the earlier of the expiration of the term of the mortgage, termination of these actions would typically terminate FHA involvement with the property, and the Flexible Subsidy loan would be repaid, in whole, at that time.”

Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing—Federal Housing Commissioner.

Providing these waivers allowed the owner to obtain financing to perform substantial rehabilitation of the property and allow the amortization of the flexible subsidy loan with the new section 241(a) loan.
