SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

The Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-372, approved January 4, 2011) (Section 202 of 2010 Act) authorizes HUD to provide SPRACs with 20-year terms to prevent displacement of elderly residents of certain projects assisted under HUD's Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program (Section 202 program) in the case of refinancing or recapitalization and to further preserve and maintain affordability of Section 202 Direct Loan projects. General authority for a Section 202 Direct Loan is provided by Section 811 of the American Homeownership and Economic Opportunity (AHEO) Act of 2000, as amended by the Section 202 of 2010 Act (12 U.S.C. 1701q note). Pursuant to this authority, SPRAC assistance may be provided to Section 202 properties with original interest rates of 6 percent or less (financed prior to 1974), when the property is refinanced to make capital repairs and the owner does not anticipate debt service savings from the refinance. In FY 2012, $16 million was made available for SPRAC funding.

II. This Notice—Solicitation of Comment

This notice advises of HUD's intent to award SPRACs through the proposed application process described in this notice. HUD is soliciting comments on Start Printed Page 1225the proposed process for awarding SPRACs and the associated criteria for establishing eligibility to apply for a SPRAC. Specifically, HUD requests comment on the following sections of this notice:

Eligibility Criteria

1. Are any additional eligibility criteria necessary to ensure those elderly residents most at risk of displacement receive SPRAC assistance?

2. Should any of the eligibility criteria be removed or modified?

3. Is eligibility criterion six—a seven percent or below vacancy rate—realistic for Section 202 properties with interest rates of 6 percent or less financed prior to 1974? If not, why not (please provide any data you have supporting your comments)?

Award Process

1. Is the SPRAC award process an effective and efficient means of providing rental assistance to elderly residents at risk of displacement? Should HUD modify the award process? If so, how?

2. Is separating qualified Owner-applicants into two pools based on willingness to target very low income elderly tenants an effective means of serving the population most in need? If so, how? If not, why (please provide any data or information you have supporting your comments)?

HUD will take all comments into consideration and issue a final notice that will provide threshold criteria for Owner-applicant eligibility and final details of the FY 2012 SPRAC award process.

III. Proposed SPRAC Application and Award Process

Purpose of the Program

The Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-372, approved January 4, 2011) (Section 202 of 2010 Act) authorizes HUD to provide SPRACs to unassisted Section 202 units. The SPRAC contracts will have 20-year terms, with funding subject to annual appropriations. The purpose of SPRACs is to prevent displacement of income-eligible elderly residents of Section 202 Direct Loan properties with original interest rates of 6 percent or less, when the property is refinanced and the Owner does not anticipate debt service savings from the refinance. General authority for a Section 202 Direct Loan is provided by Section 811 of the American Homeownership and Economic Opportunity (AHEO) Act of 2000, as amended by the Section 202 of 2010 Act (12 U.S.C. 1701q note). In order to be income-eligible to receive SPRAC assistance, household income must be 80 percent or below area median income (AMI).

In addition to protecting elderly residents from displacement, SPRAC assistance is also intended to further preservation and affordability of these pre-1974 Section 202 Direct Loan projects. The mortgages on these properties, originally for 40 or 50-year terms, are reaching their maturity dates. When mortgages mature, the use and affordability restrictions of these properties expire, putting the long term affordability of this senior housing at risk. Very low-income elderly tenants of maturing mortgage properties are at the most immediate risk of displacement. The award process described in this notice will target these maturing mortgage properties by ranking qualified applications received by mortgage maturity date. Properties with mortgage maturity dates that predate the SPRAC application deadline, and properties with maturity dates sooner than 60 days following the SPRAC application deadline will not be eligible for SPRAC awards.

HUD oversees a portfolio of 209 Section 202 properties with original interest rates of six percent or less. All were financed prior to 1974. Many pre-1974 Section 202 Direct Loan properties have never completed a rehabilitation effort and are in need of significant capital repairs. Owners may wish to prepay the existing Section 202 Direct Loan in order to obtain new financing to address the physical needs of the project. Even in a time of historically low interest rates, however, it is unlikely that the refinancing of an eligible Section 202 Direct Loan would result in a reduction in debt service.

The anticipated increase in debt service from the Section 202 refinance places unassisted elderly residents in danger of displacement. Tenants may be at risk as Owners seek additional income to pay the increased debt service. The majority of pre-1974 Direct Loan projects are “partially assisted,” meaning that some, but not all units receive Section 8 Project Based Rental assistance. Under AHEO, as amended, the Owner may qualify to receive a Section 8 rent adjustment on the Section 8 units, which could bring additional income to cover the increased debt service requirement. However, it is unlikely that this income will be sufficient to pay the increased debt service. The Owner may look to the unassisted households of the project to pay a rent increase to cover the costs of the new loan. The imposition of a rent increase places unassisted elderly residents at risk of possible displacement. SPRAC assistance will provide rental assistance on previously unassisted units. In addition, this assistance may provide revenue that could offset the cost of a service coordinator or other operating costs. This assistance eliminates the need for Owners to impose rent increases on these vulnerable households.

The provision of SPRACs is contingent on HUD approval of the Section 202 Direct Loan prepayment. As a matter of policy, HUD has determined that the amount of proposed repairs must rise to the level of substantial rehabilitation as defined in the HUD Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide, 4430-G, Rev-1. Otherwise, the transaction could have the effect of merely trading low interest debt for higher interest debt.[1] The substantial rehabilitation must be in compliance with the Section 504 accessibility requirements described in 24 CFR part 8. HUD applies the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) through its regulations under part 8. The prepayment, in conjunction with the substantial rehabilitation of the project and the provision of SPRAC, will facilitate the improvement of the project and the long-term preservation of the project as housing affordable to current and future elderly households.

The HUD Section 202 Direct Loan portfolio includes 18,600 unassisted units. To receive SPRAC assistance for these unassisted units, the project Owner must meet all SPRAC Notice requirements, and all prepayment requirements of AHEO. Over the next decade, an average of 2,000 unassisted units per year risk losing affordability due to maturing Section 202 loans.

The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-55, approved November 18, 2011) makes funds available to fund the first year of assistance for 20-year project-based rental assistance contracts for unassisted units in qualifying Section 202 projects. The precise number of units/households to receive assistance will be determined based on the availability of funds.

SPRACs are not Section 8 project based rental assistance Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contracts. However, pursuant to the Section 202 of 2010 Act, HUD will administer SPRACs under the same requirements governing project-based rental assistance made Start Printed Page 1226available under section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1473f), and implemented through the regulations at 24 CFR part 883. To be eligible for SPRAC assistance, residents must be income-eligible (at-or-below 80 percent of AMI). SPRAC assistance will only be provided to units occupied by income-eligible households at the time the SPRAC is executed. Initial SPRAC rents will be established based on market comparables. Over the 20-year term of the SPRAC, contracts will be administered using the processes described in the HUD Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook, under Option 1: Mark up to Market. Rents will be adjusted annually using the Operating Cost Adjustment Factor (OCAF) described in the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook. An updated Rent Comparability Study (RCS) will be required every five (5) years. At the end of the 20-year term, subject to the availability of appropriations, HUD may renew the SPRAC for an additional 20-year term. Please note that though SPRACs will be administered under Section 8 guidance, this does not mean that SPRACs are a form of Section 8 rental assistance. SPRACs will be administered in accordance with the current Section 8 regulations until HUD publishes regulations to govern SPRACs in the near future.

I. Available Funds

HUD is making $16 million in FY 2012 funds available to fund the initial year of SPRAC units for selected properties. HUD anticipates this could fund up to 2,000 unassisted units. Funding for future contract years are subject to appropriations. HUD may make new SPRAC contract awards in future funding rounds if and when appropriations are available for this purpose.

Award Process

The proposal is to award SPRAC requests through an application process, open to those projects electing to prepay and refinance the Section 202 Direct Loan under the terms of AHEO and HUD guidance provided in Housing Notice 12-08 for Section 202 Direct Loan prepayment requirements.[2]

Section 202 projects that apply and meet eligibility criteria will be separated into two pools:

(1) Pool One—those Owner-applicants that commit to use SPRAC assistance for existing low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of AMI) upon unit turnover; and

(2) Pool Two—those Owner-applicants that do not commit to use SPRAC assistance exclusively for low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of AMI) upon unit turnover, but rather for tenants at or below 80 percent of AMI.

All qualified Owner-applicants and the respective properties in both Pool One and Pool Two will be ranked by mortgage maturity date. Beginning with those in Pool One, SPRAC awards will be made based on the mortgage maturity date of each property. HUD will select the property with the earliest chronological maturity date first, the property with the second earliest maturity date second, and so forth, until funding is exhausted. If there are not enough qualified Owner-applicants in Pool One to exhaust available SPRAC funding, those qualified Owner-applicants in Pool Two will become eligible for SPRAC awards. The process for award will be identical to that for Pool Two and will be based on mortgage maturity date. Properties with mortgage maturity dates that predate the SPRAC application deadline will not be eligible for SPRAC awards.[3] There is no maximum award ceiling per project.

HUD will not make partial awards. HUD will only select projects that can be fully funded with available SPRAC funds. For example, if the next eligible project on the list (ranked by mortgage maturity date) includes 100 unassisted income-eligible units, HUD will only select this project for funding if there are sufficient SPRAC resources to fund all 100 income-eligible units. If resources are not sufficient, HUD will select the next eligible project that can be fully funded or will close the award process until further notice. (Following public comment on this notice and incorporation of these comments, a SPRAC Housing Notice will establish minimum basic eligibility criteria for Owner-applicants to apply by a certain deadline, which will be provided in the final notice that follows and takes into consideration public comment on this notice.)

Eligibility Criteria

Eligible Owner-applicants will own properties that meet the following criteria:

1. Their property must be a Section 202 property with an original interest rate of six percent or less (funded prior to 1974) and with unassisted units.

2. Their most recent Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) score at the property must be 60 or above, and the property must have no open Exigent Health and Safety findings.

3. Their most recent Management and Occupancy Review score at the property must be satisfactory or higher.

4. Their property must have no open referrals to the Departmental Enforcement Center.

5. The Owner-applicant must intend to refinance under the terms and conditions of AHEO, as amended, with no anticipated debt service savings from the refinance. A purchase/acquisition transaction is also eligible if the project will not experience debt service savings as a result of the transaction. (In the case of an acquisition, the current Owner must submit the SPRAC request but may provide evidence in the form of a purchase/sale agreement that the prepayment will include an acquisition.) The Owner-applicant must demonstrate that without SPRAC the rents for unassisted elderly tenants will be raised to compensate for the increased debt service costs resulting from prepayment at a higher interest rate. Rent increases will place unassisted elderly tenants at high risk of displacement.

6. Their property vacancy rate must be seven percent or lower for the 24 month period prior to application or the Owner-applicant must intend to convert efficiency units to one-bedroom units in accordance with Housing Notice 2011-03.[4] In order to convert efficiency units to one-bedroom units, the Owner-applicant must demonstrate an average vacancy rate in the efficiency units of at least 25 percent for at least 24 months or documentation must be shown that supports that the proposed conversion units are functionally obsolete.

7. Their property is proximate to the amenities and services needed by elderly residents.

8. The Owner-applicant is not eligible to request assistance if such owner:

i. Has been charged with a systemic violation of the Fair Housing Act or received a cause determination from a substantially equivalent state or local fair housing agency concerning a systemic violation of a substantially Start Printed Page 1227equivalent state or local fair housing law proscribing discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or familial status;

ii. Is a defendant in a Fair Housing Act lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice alleging a pattern or practice of discrimination or denial of rights to a group of persons raising an issue of general public interest pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 3614(a);

iii. Has received a letter of findings identifying systemic noncompliance under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, or Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974;

iv. Has received a cause determination from a substantially equivalent state or local fair housing agency concerning a systemic violation of provisions of a state or local law proscribing discrimination in housing based on sexual orientation or gender identity; or

v. Has received a cause determination from a substantially equivalent state or local fair housing agency concerning a systemic violation of a state or local law proscribing discrimination in housing based on lawful source of income; and

vi. If applicable, has not resolved to HUD's satisfaction, the charge, lawsuit, letter of findings or cause determination referenced in subparagraphs (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) or (v) and/or is not in current compliance with any agreement or consent order resolving the matter.

Award Process

Funding for SPRAC awards is extremely limited and a significant number of equally worthy projects are expected to compete for SPRAC funding. To allocate these scarce resources effectively, HUD proposes to make SPRAC awards using an application process where applications are separated into two pools:

(1) Pool One—those Owner-applicants that commit to use SPRAC assistance for existing low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of Area Media Income) upon unit turnover; and

(2) Pool Two—those Owner-applicants that do not commit to use SPRAC assistance exclusively for low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of AMI) upon unit turnover, but rather for tenants at or below 80 percent of AMI.

Both Pools will be ranked by mortgage maturity date, and beginning with Pool One, projects will be awarded SPRAC in chronological order until funding is exhausted. If funding is not exhausted from Pool One, awards will be made in chronological order of mortgage maturity date for Pool Two. HUD believes all pre-1974 Section 202 properties that meet the eligibility requirements are in need of preservation, and all unassisted residents of these properties are potentially vulnerable to rent increases or displacement. Elderly tenants of properties with imminent mortgage maturity dates are at greatest risk of displacement because those properties are closer to terminating their relationship with HUD. As the mortgage matures, the property is no longer obligated to operate as housing affordable to very low, low, and/or moderate-income elderly households.

HUD's top priority is protecting very low income unassisted elderly tenants from displacement and providing assistance to this population in the future. Therefore, HUD will give priority to those qualified Owner-applicants that commit to target 100 percent of SPRAC assistance to very low-income and low income elderly residents residing in the project at the time of the Direct Loan prepayment, and exclusively to very low income tenants at unit turnover. These projects will go into Pool One for SPRAC awards. Households that currently reside in unassisted units at the Section 202 Direct Loan project, and that meet the low income eligibility criteria (at or below 80 percent of AMI) will be eligible to receive SPRAC assistance. However, upon unit turnover, the Owner-applicants will commit to make the vacant units available exclusively to very low income households.

To determine very low income thresholds, the Owner-applicant should determine annual income by following the income verification process described in HUD Handbook 4350.3, Occupancy Requirements of Subsidized Multifamily Housing Programs.[5] The Owner-applicant must compare the household's annual income with HUD's current FY low income limits. For this comparison, Owner-applicants must know the size of the household (e.g., 1 person household). Owner-applicants may find HUD's low income limits by visiting http://www.huduser.org/​portal/​datasets/​il/​il12/​index_​il2012.html. At this site, Owner-applicants click “Click Here for FY 2012 IL Documentation.” The Owner-applicant then selects the state and county in which the property is located, and clicks “Next Screen.” The relevant information is located in the row labeled “Very Low (50%) Income Limits.” If the household's annual income is greater than the very low-income limit found in this row, the household does not qualify as a very low income household for the purposes of SPRAC eligibility.

Qualified Owner-applicants in Pool One will be ranked by project mortgage maturity date, and those projects will be funded based on chronological maturity date, with the earliest maturity date selected first, until all SPRAC funds are exhausted. Properties with mortgage maturity dates that predate the SPRAC application deadline will not be eligible for SPRAC awards. This approach allows HUD to target those properties with imminent maturing mortgages to meet the statutory intent to protect unassisted elderly residents from displacement.

If two properties have the same mortgage maturity date, projects in low-vacancy areas [6] will be given priority, because residents in these areas would have the most difficulty securing affordable housing if they did not have access to rental assistance. To determine if a project is in a low-vacancy area, please see Attachment 1. If none of the projects with the same mortgage maturity date are in a low-vacancy area, the project with the greatest number of unassisted units will be funded within the limitation of available funds, in order to reach the greatest number of impacted elderly residents.

If there are not enough qualified Owner-applicants in Pool One to utilize all available SPRAC funding, qualified Owner-applicants that meet the threshold criteria but do not commit to use SPRAC assistance for existing low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of AMI) upon unit turnover, but rather tenants at or below 80 percent of AMI (Pool Two) will become eligible. The award process for Pool Two Owner-Start Printed Page 1228applicants will be identical to that for Pool One.

Properties selected via the outlined application process will receive a preliminary notification of SPRAC award. Final SPRAC awards will be contingent on the property successfully receiving HUD approval to prepay the Section 202 Direct Loan under the requirements of AHEO and any standing or subsequent HUD guidance related to Section 202 Direct Loan prepayments.

HUD is proposing a six-stage process for the award of SPRACs:

(1) Submission by the Owner-applicant of an Expression of Interest Letter (an Expression of Interest is not being solicited at this time);

(2) Separation of qualified Owner-Applicants into Pool One and Pool Two based on Owner-applicant commitment to target very low income elderly residents;

(3) Ranking of Applications by Mortgage Maturity Date;

(4) Notification to Proceed;

(5) Completion of Prepayment Request and Approval; and

(6) Fund Reservation and Obligation.

Stage 1: Owner Submits an Expression of Interest Letter

An Owner-applicant must first determine that the 202 Direct Loan property meets the above basic eligibility criteria for SPRAC award. An interested and eligible Owner-applicant will then submit an Expression of Interest Letter for SPRAC award to HUD. HUD proposes the following information should be included in or with the Expression of Interest Letter:

1. Project name and FHA number.

2. Statement that the Owner-applicant plans to refinance and does not anticipate debt service savings from the refinance, and must plan repairs that rise to the level of substantial rehabilitation.

3. Statement that the Owner-applicant will commit to target SPRAC assistance exclusively for existing low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of Area Media Income) upon unit turnover (if applicable).

4. Rent rolls from the 3 months preceding the Letter of Intent, verifying that the property has a vacancy rate of seven percent or lower.

or

The Owner-applicant must include a statement of intent to convert efficiency units to one-bedroom units in accordance with Housing Notice 2011-03. In order to convert efficiency units to one-bedroom units, the property rent roll must demonstrate that average vacancy rate in the efficiency units is at least 25 percent for at least 24 months or the Owner-applicant must provide a letter from a licensed appraiser or a licensed architect indicating that the efficiency units proposed for conversion are functionally obsolete.

5. Rent Comparability Study (RCS), commissioned by the Owner, to estimate the approximate amount of SPRAC funding needed to provide assistance at market rent levels for the unassisted units. The RCS must be completed in accordance with Chapter 9 of the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook (http://portal.hud.gov/​hudportal/​documents/​huddoc?​id=​DOC_​14528.pdf). If the property has a Section 8 HAP contract and the Owner has commissioned an RCS within the last five years, the RCS may be used per the guidelines of Chapter 9 of the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook. HUD will use the RCS to approximate the SPRAC contract rents based on comparable market rents.[7]

6. The Owner-Applicant must submit one of the following to demonstrate the property is proximate to amenities and services needed by the elderly residents:

A. Submit a letter, signed by the Housing, Planning, or Community Development office of the local municipality verifying that:

(i) This Section 202 property is proximate to social, recreational, educational, commercial, and health facilities and services, and other municipal facilities and services; or

(ii) If the Section 202 property is not currently proximate to social, recreational, educational, commercial, and health facilities or services, the preservation of this Section 202 property is an integral part of a concerted community revitalization plan.

or

B. Provide a certification from the Designated Point of Contact for the designated Preferred Sustainability Status Community where the property is located, using form HUD2995. A list of Preferred Sustainability Status Communities and the corresponding points of contact can be found here: http://portal.hud.gov/​hudportal/​HUD?​src=​/​program_​offices/​administration/​grants/​nofa11/​psscontacts. The form will certify the nexus between the proposed preservation of the Section 202 property by the owner applicant and the Livability Principles as they are being advanced in the Preferred Sustainability Status Community. This certification must be signed and dated anytime from the date of the publication of the SPRAC Final Notice to the deadline date of the SPRAC funding opportunity. Any certifications signed before or after those dates will not be acceptable.

8. Statement certifying that the Owner-applicant is in compliance with the civil rights threshold requirements set forth under “Eligibility Criteria” in this Notice.

Note:

HUD will remove the application from the pool and notify those Owner-applicants who do not meet the qualifications for a SPRAC award.

Stage 2: Separation of Applications by Very low Income Targeting into Pool One and Pool Two

Those qualified Owner-Applicants that include a statement of commitment to use SPRAC assistance for existing low income and very low income tenants residing at the property at the time of the 202 Direct Loan prepayment, and for new very low income tenants (50 percent of AMI) upon unit turnover will be placed in Pool One and those qualified Owner-applicants that do not include a statement of commitment will be placed in Pool Two. Once all qualified Owner-applicants in Pool One have received SPRAC assistance, awards will begin for Pool Two.

Stage 3: Ranking of Applications by Mortgage Maturity Date

Upon the submission deadline for the Expression of Interest Letter and the separation of qualified Owner-applicants into Pool One and Pool Two, HUD will rank the qualified Owner-applicants and corresponding projects by mortgage maturity date. If two or more qualified applicants have the same mortgage maturity date, the project(s) in low-vacancy areas listed in the appendix to this Notice will be given priority. If none of the projects with the same mortgage maturity date are in low-vacancy areas, the project with the most unassisted units will be selected within limitations of funding.

Beginning with Pool One, HUD will allocate SPRAC funding in chronological order of mortgage maturity date, using the RCS, the number of unassisted units, and contract cost information in comparable properties to estimate needed funding, Start Printed Page 1229until all SPRAC funds are exhausted. HUD will not make partial awards. HUD will only select projects that can be fully funded with available SPRAC funds. For example, if the next project on the list includes 100 unassisted units HUD will only select this project for funding if there are sufficient SPRAC resources to fund all 100 units under the contract. If resources are not sufficient, HUD will select the next eligible project that can be fully funded or will close the award process until further notice.

Once all qualified Owner-applicants in Pool One have been funded, HUD will award SPRAC to those qualified Owner-applicants in Pool Two chronologically by mortgage maturity date. Awards made to Pool Two Owner-applicants will follow the same procedures outlined above for Pool One.

Stage 4: Notification to Proceed

Upon selection, the Owner-applicant will receive a Notification to Proceed letter confirming the project was selected to receive a SPRAC award. This Notification will specify that SPRAC assistance will only be provided for unassisted units occupied by income-eligible residents (at or below 80 percent of AMI) at the time of execution of the SPRAC. The Notification to Proceed letter will not guarantee funding, as the Owner-applicant will need to meet all criteria and complete the Section 202 prepayment process successfully before receiving funds. The Notification to Proceed letter will include an estimated dollar amount for potential SPRAC assistance, determined by the required RCS submitted by the Owner-applicant. This amount is subject to change based on the determination of the number of income-eligible unassisted units at the property and market comparable rents using the RCS. The Owner-applicant will be required to verify tenant incomes to determine the number of income-eligible households (at 80 percent AMI or below) residing in unassisted units at the time the SPRAC is executed.

The Notification to Proceed letter will be conditioned on HUD approval of a prepayment request and the closing of the proposed refinance. The Owner-applicant must submit a complete prepayment request to the Multifamily Hub/PC office within 60 days of the date of receipt of the Notification to Proceed letter. The prepayment request must include all information required by Housing Notice 12-08. Failure to submit the prepayment request within 60 days of the date of receipt of the Notification to Proceed letter will nullify the Notification to Proceed and the Owner-applicant's eligibility for SPRAC for this round of funding. The Notification to Proceed letter will be valid for no more than 180 days (six months). During this 180 day period, the Owner-applicant will finalize and submit the prepayment request and secure the refinance loan. If the prepayment approval is not granted in that time, and/or if the Owner-applicant does not close the refinancing in this time period, the project's selection in the lottery will be cancelled and the corresponding funds released.

If the Owner-applicant is planning to use FHA financing, HUD will extend the Notification to Proceed to accommodate the timeline for FHA application reviews, provided that the Owner-applicant submits evidence of submission of an FHA insured loan application. HUD may also consider extending the Notification to Proceed if the Owner-applicants pursues Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs), either in the form of 9 percent or 4 percent LIHTCs. The Owner-applicant must submit evidence of tax credit application in order to receive an extension. If the project is selected and issued a Notification to Proceed and the Owner-applicant proposes to use 9 percent tax credits, the Owner-Applicant will have one opportunity to apply for the 9 percent tax credits in the next scheduled application round administered by the state or local issuing agency. If 9 percent tax credits cannot be secured during that first application cycle, the Notification to Proceed will be cancelled unless the Owner can demonstrate feasibility to meet Section 202 prepayment requirements without tax credits.

Stage 5: Prepayment Request and Approval

1. Submission of Prepayment request to Hub/PC within 60 days of receipt of the Notification to Proceed letter. The Owner-applicant will submit a Section 202 Direct Loan prepayment request to the Hub/PC. The Hub/PC will screen, review and process the application to ensure it meets the requirements of Housing Notice 12-08 and any subsequent guidance on Section 202 Direct Loan prepayments.[8] The review will ensure compliance with all applicable statutes, regulations and policies. The review will include an environmental review by HUD Multifamily Development staff pursuant to the requirements at 24 CFR Part 50. Guidance for completion of this review may be found in Chapter 9 of the Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) Guide. The review will include an assessment to verify the proposed repairs rise to the level of substantial rehabilitation and the proposed refinance will result in an increase in debt service, placing unassisted elderly residents at risk of increased rents and concomitantly displacement. If there is no anticipated increase in debt service, the project will not be eligible for SPRAC and the Notification to Proceed will be revoked. The Hub/PC Director will forward recommendations for Direct Loan prepayment approval to HUD Headquarters Office of Asset Management. Upon receipt of the Hub/PC recommendation, the Office of Asset Management will review the prepayment request and, within 30 days of the date of receipt of the Hub/PC recommendation, will make a determination of prepayment approval and notify the Hub/PC and the Owner-applicant.

2. Rent Comparability Study and Contract Request.[9] After receiving the Notification to Proceed letter, and while the prepayment application is completed, the Owner-applicant will be required to submit a copy of the Rent Comparability Study submitted with their Letter of Intent, that meets the requirements of the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook. The Owner-applicant should also submit income verification information and a Contract Renewal Request Form (HUD Form 9264) [10] requesting a 20-year contract under Option 1: Mark up to Market. The Hub/PC will determine the rents for the project for the units occupied by income-eligible residents (those at or below 80 percent of AMI), and prepare the SPRAC for execution.

Stage 6: Fund Reservation and Obligation

Upon approval of the prepayment request by HUD headquarters Office of Asset Management, HUD will issue an official fund reservation for the final SPRAC funding amount for that project. Once the fund reservation is complete, HUD will execute the SPRAC.

On the date of closing, the owner will execute the required Use Agreement and other loan documents as well as the SPRAC. Upon closing, HUD will obligate the SPRAC funds. Following Start Printed Page 1230the closing, the SPRAC will be administered under the rules and terms of the Section 8 Renewal Policy Guidebook by the PBCA and the HUD field office staff.

Note:

A property meets the low-vacancy threshold if it is located in a county that was below the national rental vacancy rate for units affordable to low-income households in 2000 (7.3 percent) and was within the 80th percentile of low-income rental vacancy rates (8.7 percent) as measured by the 2009 5 year ACS (meaning that 80 percent of counties had a vacancy rate below 8.7 percent in the 2009 5 year ACS).

3.  Pursuant to AHEO, SPRAC awards must be linked to a qualifying mortgage prepayment, not a mortgage maturity. Therefore a property will not receive SPRAC if the mortgage matures before the Direct Loan prepayment is completed.

6.  “Low-vacancy area” was defined for the purposes of this assistance as a county that currently and historically demonstrates a moderate to tight rental housing market for low-income renters. HUD determined this definition with two thresholds. First, the county must be below the national vacancy rate for units affordable to low-income household in 2000, which is 7.3 percent.
