SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Secretary has delegated to the Assistant Secretary for FHEO the authority to act as “responsible civil rights official” and “reviewing civil rights official” under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and HUD's implementing regulations in 24 CFR part 8. The Assistant Secretary for FHEO redelegated the authority to act as the “responsible civil rights official” to the General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO, who in turn, redelegated that authority to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs, Director of the Office of Enforcement, Director of the Office of Systemic Investigations, and the FHEO Region Directors. The Assistant Secretary for FHEO also redelegated the authority to act as “reviewing civil rights official,” in accordance with 24 CFR 8.56(h), to the General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO, who in turn further redelegated that authority to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs, the Director of the Office of Enforcement, and the Director of the Office of Systemic Investigations. The Assistant Secretary for FHEO therefore now supersedes those prior redelegations and retains and redelegates authority as follows:

The General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO retains and further redelegates the authority to act as the “responsible civil rights official” to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs, Director of the Office of Systemic Investigations, Director of the Office of Enforcement and the FHEO Region Directors. The General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO retains and further redelegates the authority to act as “reviewing civil rights official,” in accordance with in 24 CFR 8.56(h), to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs, Director of the Office of Enforcement and the Director of the Office of Systemic Investigation. The authority redelegated to the General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO to act as the “responsible civil rights official” when undertaking procedures to effect compliance pursuant to 24 CFR 8.57 is only redelegated to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Programs and may not be redelegated.

Section B. Authority Excepted

The authority redelegated from the Assistant Secretary for FHEO does not include the authority to issue or waive regulations. The authority redelegated from the Assistant Secretary for FHEO to the General Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO does not include the authority to further redelegate.

Section C. Authority Superseded
