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 October 1, 2009 through December 31, 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 fourth quarter of calendar year 2009) before the next report is published (the first quarter of calendar year 2010), HUD will include any additional waivers granted for the fourth quarter in the next report.

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

I. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Community Planning and Development

For further information about the following regulatory waivers, please see the name of the contact person that immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: Beyond Housing of St. Louis, MO, advised of using HUD Economic Development Initiative Special Project (EDI-SP) funds to implement the Pagedale Community Development Initiative, the initial phase of which consists of construction of a 17,000 square foot grocery store, related site improvements, and, in early 2010, construction of a 4-story building that will have 10,000 square feet of retail space and 40 units of senior housing. The development site (approximately 2.7 acres) will require demolition of six single-family houses, three businesses and one church. All structures are currently vacant. Subsequent to the March 11, 2009 appropriation containing the EDI-SP, but prior to the release of funds from HUD, Beyond Housing and/or its development partners undertook multiple, legal commitments for acquisition, demolition and leasing.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation in 24 CFR 58.22(a) requires that an environmental review be performed and a Request for Release of Funds be completed and certified prior to the commitment of non-HUD funds to a project using HUD funds.

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

Date Granted: November 19, 2009.

Reason Waived: The waiver was granted based on the following findings: the above project will further the objective of providing community development; no HUD funds were committed; and based on the environmental assessment and HUD field inspection, granting a waiver will not result in any unmitigated, adverse environmental impact provided that Beyond Housing implements the conditions described in the St. Louis County's Environmental Assessment and the project obtains an approved release of funds.

Contact: Danielle Schopp, Office of Environment and Energy, Office of Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 7250, Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 402-4442.

Project/Activity: Cowlitz Indian Tribe of Longview, WA submitted an application for Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) funds in June, 2007 to demolish an existing health clinic facility and construct a new health clinic. After submission of the ICDBG application, but prior to release of funds by HUD, the Cowlitz Indian Tribe demolished the existing structure and entered into a construction contract for the new facility.

Nature of Requirement: The regulation in 24 CFR 58.22(a) requires that an environmental review be performed and a Request for Release of Funds be completed and certified prior to the commitment of non-HUD funds to a project using HUD funds.

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

Date Granted: October 13, 2009.

Reason Waived: The waiver was granted based on the following findings: the above project will further the HUD program goal, specifically the expansion of affordable health care for low-income tribal members; the errors made in the environmental process for the commitment of non-HUD funds were made in good faith and Cowlitz Indian Tribe did not willfully violate the applicable regulations; no HUD funds were committed; and, based on the environmental assessment and the HUD field inspection, granting a waiver will not result in any unmitigated, adverse environmental impact.

Contact: Danielle Schopp, Office of Environment and Energy, Office of Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 7250, Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 402-4442.

Project/Activity: AIDS Alabama in Birmingham, AL sought to sell two properties that were plagued with vandalism. The organization reported that the cost of the repairs would exceed the value of the properties and a more cost effective use of such resources has been identified. The organization reported that disposition proceeds from the sale of the two properties would be retained and used to meet the critical housing needs of HOPWA eligible clients at other project sites.

Nature of Requirement: Section 84.32 of HUD's regulation prescribes requirements for recipients concerning the use and disposition of real property acquired in whole or in part under funding awards. A waiver of 84.32, or more specifically 84.32(c), which specifies HUD's disposition requirements, was required because the nonprofit did not wish to compensate HUD under paragraphs (c)(1) or (c)(2), or to transfer title under paragraph (c)(3). Whenever real property is no longer needed, the disposition requirements of paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(3) come into play and the sales proceeds from those properties go into a miscellaneous Treasury account. Since AIDS Alabama wanted to retain the sales proceeds to fill a local HIV/AIDS housing need, the funds would not be used to “compensate” HUD within the meaning of 84.32(c).

Granted By: Mercedes Márquez, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning & Development.

Date Granted: October 26, 2009.

Reason Waived: The structures were no longer needed to carry out the objectives of the original HOPWA projects for which they were acquired. Pursuant to this waiver, disposition proceeds from the sale of the two properties are to be retained by the HOPWA service provider, AIDS Alabama, and used to meet the critical housing needs of HOPWA eligible clients in the Alabama Rural AIDS project. This funding is to be reported, utilized and dedicated to the project in a manner consistent with HOPWA program, as defined at 24 CFR 84.24.

Contact: David Vos, Director, Office of HIV/AIDS Housing, Office of Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 7276, Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-1590.

Project/Activity: The Kansas Housing Resources Corporation of Topeka, KS requested a waiver to permit it to provide additional HOME funds to rehabilitate three previously assisted projects that fell into physical disrepair due to capacity problems with the nonprofit owner.

Nature of Requirement: The HOME regulations at 24 CFR 92.214(a)(6) prohibit, except for the 12 months following project completion, the provision of additional HOME assistance to projects that were previously assisted with HOME funds during the period of affordability established by the participating jurisdiction.

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

Date Granted: December 17, 2009.

Reason Waived: HUD approved the waiver request because it determined that the Participating Jurisdiction exercised due diligence in addressing compliance issues and because the additional HOME investment would ensure the long-term viability of the project as affordable housing.

Contact: Ms. Virginia Sardone, Deputy Director, Office of Affordable Housing Programs, Office of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 7164, Washington, DC 20410-7000, telephone (202) 708-2470.

Project/Activity: The City of Cincinnati, OH requested a waiver to invest additional HOME funds in a project previously-assisted with HOME funds and to reduce the period of affordability for the project. The City originally imposed a period of affordability of 31.5 years, of which nearly 22 years remained. The project was undergoing Start Printed Page 12779financial restructuring through the Mark-to-Market process. The City proposed investing an additional $1,000,000 of HOME funds to rehabilitate the 651-unit project and impose a new affordability period of 5 years.

Nature of Requirement: The HOME regulations at 24 CFR 92.214(a)(6) prohibits, except for the 12 months following project completion, the provision of additional HOME assistance to projects that were previously assisted with HOME funds during the period of affordability established by the participating jurisdiction.

Granted By: Mercedes Márquez, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning & Development.

Date Granted: November 3, 2009.

Reason Waived: In 1998, the City provided a $1,000,000 HOME rehabilitation loan to Fay Apartments. The written agreement designated 651 HOME-assisted units and imposed a period of affordability of 31.5 years, which exceeded the 5-year minimum required by the HOME regulations. HUD approved the waiver request because it determined that the additional HOME investment would stabilize the HOME-assisted units and ensure the long-term viability of the project as affordable housing. However, HUD did not approve the City's request to reduce the affordability period to 5 years. The City must maintain HOME affordability restrictions on the property for the remainder of the original 31.5-year affordability period.

II. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Housing—Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

For further information about the following regulatory waivers, please see the name of the contact person that immediately follows the description of the waiver granted.

Project/Activity: This waiver was granted for new construction properties located in the following Boroughs in the State of Alaska; Juneau, Mantanuska-Susitna, Anchorage, Bethel, North Slope (Barrow), Fairbanks (North Star and Southeast), and the Kenai Peninsula that utilize alternative water supply systems, such as Cisterns used in conjunction with hauled/purchased water.

Nature of Requirement: FHA's Minimum Property Standards (MPS) regulations governing new construction for single-family dwellings, found at 24 CFR 200.926d(f)(1)(i) and (2)(i) provide that to be eligible for FHA insurance, each living unit within a newly constructed single-family residential property should be capable of delivering a flow of 5 gallons per minute (gpm) over a 4-hour period in order to provide a continuing and sufficient supply of safe water under adequate pressure and appropriate quality for household use. Under these regulatory requirements water supply systems that utilize water holding tanks, cisterns, and similar alternative devices are not considered acceptable.

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

Date Granted: November 6, 2009.

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver enabled lenders to provide FHA financing to homebuyers of new construction single family housing in the boroughs Juneau, Mantanuska-Susitna, Anchorage, Bethel, North Slope (Barrow), Fairbanks (North Star and Southeast), and the Kenai Peninsula where it is not feasible to procure water from conventional water supply systems.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) of HUD's regulations govern the repayment of operating assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, and 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.

Date Granted: November 10, 2009.

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver allowed the owner to amortize the flexible subsidy debt with a newly financed mortgage.

The existing Flexible Subsidy loans were recast and are to be repaid over the 30-year term of the new financing from available surplus cash. Granting the waiver allowed the property to be recapitalized, thereby maintaining the preservation of 150 units of affordable housing.”

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

Date Granted: October 22, 2009.

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver permitted the repayment of the existing Section 236(e)(2) mortgage with a new permanent first mortgage and capitulation of the Interest Reduction Payment subsidy which will provide funds to rehabilitate and service the loan, pay the principal portion of the Residual Receipts note and assume the balance plus accumulated accrued interest.

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

Date Granted: December 14, 2009.

Contact: Robert G. Iber, Acting Director, Office of Asset Management, Office of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410-8000, telephone (202) 708-3730.

Project/Activity: Rich Park Apartments, Raleigh, North Carolina—FHA Project Number 053-35011. The project owner requested deferment of repayment of the Flexible Subsidy loans on this project because the project had not generated sufficient cash flow to pay off the loan when the mortgage matures.

Project/Activity: Birch Run Cooperative, Romulus, Michigan—FHA Project Number 044-55178/79. The project owner requested deferment of repayment of Flexible Subsidy loans on this project because the project had not generated sufficient cash flow for repayment of the loan upon its impending maturity.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) of HUD's regulations governs the repayment of operating assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, and 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.”

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver allowed the owner to prepay the existing mortgage, obtain financing to improve and repair the property and allow the amortization of the Flexible Subsidy loan with the new mortgage.

Contact: Robert G. Iber, Acting Director, Office of Asset Management, Office of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410-8000, telephone (202) 708-3730.

Project/Activity: High Park Terrace Apartments, Newark, New Jersey—FHA Project Number 031-55032. The project owner requested deferment of repayment of Flexible Subsidy loans. The project was unable to meet its obligations as of the date of the request. Waiver of the regulation would avoid foreclosure of the project.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) of HUD's regulations governs the repayment of operating assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, and 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.

Date Granted: October 21, 2009.

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver of this regulation allowed the owner to prepay the existing mortgage, obtain financing to carry on its current obligations, improve and repair the property and allow the amortization of the Flexible Subsidy loan with the new mortgage. Granting the waiver also allowed the property to remain a well-maintained source of affordable housing for the Newark, New Jersey area.

Project/Activity: Des Moines Area Council of Church Homes, Des Moines, Iowa—FHA Project No. 074-35003-LPA-NP-SUP-R. The project owner requested deferment of the repayment of the Flexible Subsidy Operating Assistance loans on this property because the property did not possess resources to repay the loan upon its maturity.

Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) of HUD's regulations governs the repayment of operating assistance provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior to May 1, 1996, and 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.

Date Granted: November 10, 2009.

Reason Waived: Granting the waiver permitted the owner to prepay the existing mortgage, sell the project and obtain financing to rehabilitate the property and allow the repayment of the Flexible Subsidy loans over the term of the new mortgage loan. Granting the waiver also allowed the property to continue as a well-maintained source of affordable housing.

Project/Activity: Central Tampa Assisted Living, Tampa, Florida.

Nature of Requirement: HUD's regulations at 24 CFR 232.3 provide that not less than one full bathroom must be provided for every four residents of a board and care home or assisted living facility, and the bathroom access from any bedroom or sleeping area must not pass through a public corridor or area.

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

Date Granted: December 7, 2009.

Reason Waived: In this project, resident bathing is accomplished utilizing bathing aides and a shower schedule. Due to their dementia diagnosis, residents can be resistive to care, but with the assistance of bathing aides and a regular shower schedule, the facility is able to ensure that residents are receiving the proper care. The shower rooms feature individual private cubicles and are used to bathe residents with assistance of aides on a daily basis. The administrator reported that the number of existing showers is sufficient for residents to bathe, and that it is a top priority to ensure that residents are clean and healthy.

The current design and bathroom layout do not appear to present a marketing concern for the facility. As of the request of the waiver, the facility reported 93.0 percent occupancy as of October 21, 2009, and historical occupancy was consistently been above 90.0 percent.

Project/Activity: Cokesbury Gardens Apartments, Greenwood, South Carolina—FHA Project Number 054-44037. The owner requested permission to waive the definition of family in the regulation to permit rental of 15 vacant units at the property to a local university.

Nature of Requirement: Section 236.2 of HUD's regulations, as preserved in 1995, governs the leasing of available units to qualified tenants, and states in part: “Family. Two or more persons related by blood, marriage, or operation of law, who occupy the same dwelling unit.” The units will be occupied by unrelated parties.”

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

Date Granted: December 7, 2009.

Reason Waived: The property was experiencing a high vacancy rate of 28 percent and cash flow problems, with no waiting list. The local university proposed to rent the 15 vacant units at the market rate. Waiver of this regulation allowed the project to rent to students, thereby allowing it to operate successfully and achieve full occupancy. Had the waiver not been granted, the property would have defaulted on its mortgage.
