To help assure a balanced utilization of revitalization tools and the long-term economic viability of revitalized projects, the MPR underwriting guidelines include, but are not limited to the following: (i) The maximum bullet loan is limited to no more than $5,000 per unit, (ii) The total assistance provided from a revitalization grant, rehabilitation loan, and/or a bullet loan is limited to $10,000 per unit, (iii) The maximum Section 515 one percent loan is limited to no more than $20,000 per unit, (iv) Properties receiving tax credits are expected to have sufficient funding sources and generally will receive debt deferral only. (4) Properties with more than 75 percent of the units receiving deep tenant subsidy such as Rural Development rental assistance or HUDfunded tenant subsidy will be supplemented with rehabilitation loans and Section 515 loans before grant and bullet loans are considered, (5) Grants will be limited to $5,000 per unit, (6) Any rent increases that may be necessary will not exceed 10 percent in any one year, (7) The approved MPR transaction will include projected revenue sufficient to cover a 10 percent Operations and Maintenance increase in the second year after the transaction, (8) Full return to owner will be budgeted pursuant to the Loan Agreement, (9) Budgeted increases to reserve deposit will not exceed 3 percent per annum, (10) The remaining reserve balance at the end of the 20-year analysis period should be at least 2.0 times the average annual needs, including inflation, over the 20-year analysis period. These guidelines have been developed based on experience in the FY 2005 and FY 2006 Demonstrations. The Agency believes that these guidelines will be appropriate for typical transactions. However, the Agency reserves the right to waive any VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:27 Apr 27, 2007 Jkt 211001 of the guidelines if, in the Agency’s judgment, doing so would further the objectives of the Demonstration and is in the best interest of the Government. The Agency expects that some of the transactions proposed by selected preapplicants will prove to be infeasible. The applicant entity may be determined to be ineligible under Section III of this Notice. If a proposed transaction is determined infeasible or the applicant determined ineligible, the Agency will then select the next highest ranked project for processing. Each MPR offer will be approved by the Revitalization Review Committee chaired by the Deputy Administrator for Multi-Family Housing or an agencyauthorized delegate. Approved MPR offers will be presented to applicants who will then have up to 15 calendar days to accept or reject the offer in writing. Offers will expire after 15 days. The Agency will replace expired applications by selecting the next highest ranked project. Closing of MPR offers will occur within 90 days of acceptance by the applicant unless extended by the Agency. IX. Funding Restrictions Applicants will be selected in accordance with selection criteria and the five-step process identified in Section VII of this Notice. Once selected to proceed, the Agency will provide additional guidance to the applicant and request information and documents necessary to complete the underwriting and review process. Since the character of each application may vary substantially depending on the type of transactions proposed, information requirements will be provided as appropriate. Complete project information must be submitted as soon as possible but in no case later than 45 days from the date of Agency notification of the applicant’s selection for further processing or September 1, 2007, whichever occurs first. Failure to submit the required information in a timely manner may result in the Agency discontinuing the processing of the request. Funding under this NOFA will be obligated to selectees that finish the processing steps outlined above first within each of the 3 funding queues described in Section VII of this Notice PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and to result in a ratio as close as possible to 30 percent portfolio sale transactions, 50 percent complex transactions, and 20 percent simple transactions. X. Application Review A review committee will make recommendations for final decision regarding funding to the appropriate Rural Development State Director based on the selection criteria contained in this NOFA. XI. Appeal Process All adverse determinations regarding applicant eligibility and the awarding of points as a part of the selection process are appealable. Instructions on the appeal process will be provided at the time an applicant is notified of the adverse action. Dated: April 20, 2007 Russell T. Davis, Administrator, Rural Housing Service. [FR Doc.
