On July 2, 2014, HUD published a notice that made final an earlier notice published on December 16, 2013, for public comment. The December 16, 2013, notice was entitled ``Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Interim Scoring Notice: Reinstitution of Five Points for Occupancy Sub-Indicator and Request for Comment.'' These notices pertain to the scoring of PHAs by HUD and have the effect of reinstating, temporarily, the automatic award of 5 points for the occupancy sub-indicator of the Capital Fund Program Indicator to all PHAs that passed a basic threshold scoring level for the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Program Indicator. However, in the July 2, 2014, notice HUD inadvertently failed to revise the title of the notice by replacing ``interim'' with ``final'' and by removing the phrase ``and Request for Comment.'' Since the July 2, 2014, notice is final and does not request public comments, the title may be misleading to the public. HUD, therefore, is publishing today's notice to correct its July 2, 2014, notice.

Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice announces changes in the interest rates to be paid on debentures issued with respect to a loan or mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration under the provisions of the National Housing Act (the Act). The interest rate for debentures issued under section 221(g)(4) of the Act during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2014, is 2\3/8\ percent. The interest rate for debentures issued under any other provision of the Act is the rate in effect on the date that the commitment to insure the loan or mortgage was issued, or the date that the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or initially endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for insurance, whichever rate is higher. The interest rate for debentures issued under these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or endorsed during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2014, is 3\1/4\ percent. However, as a result of an amendment to section 224 of the Act, if an insurance claim relating to a mortgage insured under sections 203 or 234 of the Act and endorsed for insurance after January 23, 2004, is paid in cash, the debenture interest rate for purposes of calculating a claim shall be the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years.

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule amends HUD's regulations governing the eligibility for FHA insurance of mortgages used for the purchase or refinancing of existing multifamily housing projects. Although the statutory language authorizing such insurance does not distinguish between rental or cooperative multifamily projects, HUD's regulations limit FHA insurance to existing rental projects. Given the significant needs identified for multifamily cooperative financing, the Department determined that it was appropriate to reconsider the regulatory imposed limitation. Accordingly, this rule revises HUD's regulations to enable existing multifamily cooperative project owners to obtain FHA insurance for the refinancing of existing indebtedness.

Through this rule, HUD removes regulations for the HOPE for Homeowners Program. The statutory authority for this program expired September 30, 2011. Because these regulations are no longer operative, they are being removed by this final rule. To the extent that local programs are still ongoing under the following repealed parts, the removal of these regulations does not affect the requirements for transactions entered into when the regulations were in effect. Loans made under the HOPE for Homeowners Program that are presently insured will continue to be governed by the regulations that existed immediately before the effective date of this final rule.

Document Number: 2014-16151
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-07-11
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would revise HUD's public housing agency (PHA) consortium regulations. These regulations provide the procedures by which PHAs may choose to administer their public housing and Section 8 programs. The changes proposed are intended to increase administrative efficiencies associated with forming a consortium and to help ensure maximum family choice in locating suitable housing. The proposed rule focuses mainly on establishing a new category of consortia for administration of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. This type of consortium would be comprised of multiple PHAs that would become a single PHA, with a single jurisdiction and a single set of reporting and audit requirements, for purposes of administering the Section 8 HCV program. This type of consortium would be in addition to the consortium structure established in current consortium regulations which the Department is referring to as multiple-ACC consortium in this proposed rule. The proposed rule would also revise the categories of Section 8 programs eligible to be administered under a consortium, and establish new requirements regarding the timeframes for the establishment and dissolution of a consortium. Further, HUD has taken the opportunity afforded by this proposed rule to make several technical, nonsubstantive changes to improve the clarity and organization of the consortia regulations. HUD has also taken the opportunity afforded by this proposed rule to amend the definition of ``public housing agency'' to be consistent with amendments to the United States Housing Act of 1937 (1937 Act), as provided for in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014.

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On June 18, 2014, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) issued Mortgagee Letter 2014-11, announcing a limit on the insurability of fixed interest rate mortgages under the HECM program to mortgages with the Single Disbursement Lump Sum payment option. FHA issued this Mortgagee Letter pursuant to the authority granted to it in subsections 202(a) and 255(c) of the National Housing Act and in the Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act of 2013 to make this change to the HECM program. The limitation on the eligibility for insurance of fixed interest rate mortgages is necessary in order to ensure the financial viability of the HECM program and the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund (Fund). These changes took effect for case numbers assigned on or after June 25, 2014. This notice solicits comment for a period of 30 days on the new requirements announced in Mortgagee Letter 2014-11.

Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-02
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice makes final a prior notice reinstating, temporarily, the award of 5 points for the occupancy sub-indicator of the Capital Fund Program Indicator to all PHAs for the PHAS Capital Fund Program Indicator. This award of points is provided as regulatory relief from a non-statutory element of PHAS and intended to help lessen the impact of decreases in funding in recent appropriations acts. Adding automatic points for the occupancy sub-indicator will allow PHAs to focus on the statutory criteria for assessing performance under the Capital Fund Indicator, which is timely obligation of the Capital Funds and will in no way limit HUD's oversight and monitoring of PHAs. This notice, in order to ensure there is no confusion on this point, is explicit about the fact that the remainder of the Capital Fund Scoring Notice of February 23, 2011 remains in effect and unchanged by this notice, and if the PHA receives 0 points for the timeliness of obligation subindicator, it is not eligible for points for the occupancy subindicator.

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HERA, enacted into law on July 30, 2008, made comprehensive and significant reforms to several HUD programs, including HUD's Public Housing, Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher, and Project-Based Voucher programs. On November 24, 2008, HUD published a notice that provided information about the applicability of certain HERA provisions to these programs. The notice identified: those statutory provisions that are self-executing and required no action on the part of HUD for the program changes made by HERA to be implemented; and those statutory provisions that require new regulations or regulatory changes by HUD for the HERA provisions to be implemented. The notice also offered the opportunity for public comment on the guidance provided. HUD followed the November 2008 notice with a May 15, 2012, rule that proposed to establish, in regulation, the reforms made by HERA solely to the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Project-Based Voucher programs as discussed in the November 2008 notice, to make other related changes to the regulations, and to further solicit public comment. This final rule conforms the regulations of the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Project-Based Voucher programs to the statutory program changes made by HERA, makes other related changes to these regulations as discussed in the May 2012 proposed rule, and makes further changes to the two voucher program regulations as a result of issues raised by public comment or as a result of further consideration by HUD of issues pertaining to these programs.

Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-19
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HUD's civil money penalty regulations currently provide that the Director of HUD's Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, or the Director's designee, may initiate a civil money penalty action against any person who knowingly violates the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992. HUD's Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention regulation identifies the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control as the approval authority, after consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, for lead-safe work practices courses that may qualify supervisors and workers to perform interim controls of lead-based paint hazards. Because HUD has changed the name of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control to the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes, this final rule conforms HUD regulations to reference this new name. This final rule also provides a savings provision that preserves under the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes all actions taken under the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.

On March 23, 2012, HUD published a notice, effective as of March 23, 2012, that established the policies and procedures for the administration of tenant-based Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance under the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. The March 23, 2012, notice was an update of a HUD- VASH program notice first published by HUD on May 6, 2008. It was recently brought to HUD's intention that one of the HUD regulations that requires waiver in order to allow HUD-VASH families to live on the grounds of a VA facility in units developed to house homeless veterans was not referenced in either the May 6, 2008, notice or the March 23, 2012, notice. Although HUD has waived the requirement since the issuance of the May 6, 2008, notice, the regulatory requirement was inadvertently omitted from the notice. This notice corrects that omission.

Through this rule, HUD removes its regulations previously authorized under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA), the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act), and the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act (ILSFDA). Responsibility for administration of these statutes, including authority to issue regulations, was transferred to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) pursuant to title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). Accordingly, HUD's regulations for these statutes are no longer operative, and are being removed by this final rule.
