SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

HUD's BEDI program provides Federal support to CDBG entitlement and non-entitlement units of general local government to enhance the security of loan guaranteed by HUD under Section 108 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, (42 U.S.C. 5308(q)) as amended, for the same brownfields economic development project, or to improve the viability of a brownfields economic development project financed with the Section 108-guaranteed loan, in order to stimulate economic development by local governments and private sector parties at brownfields sites and to return those sites to productive economic use.

On April 8, 2009, (FR-5300-N-08) HUD published a NOFA announcing the availability of approximately $20,000,000 in FY 2009 funds for the BEDI program.
