Background Seventy-five million dollars in Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program funding will provide rental assistance under a supportive housing program for homeless veterans authorized by section 8(o)(19) of the United States Housing Act of 1937, 42 U.S.C. 1437f(o)(19). The VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:11 May 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 initiative is known as the HUD–VASH program and was authorized pursuant to Division K, Title II, of The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110– 161) (‘‘2008 Appropriation Act’’) enacted on December 26, 2007 (see proviso (7) under the heading ‘‘TenantBased Rental Assistance’’). The HUD– VASH program combines HUD HCV rental assistance for homeless veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at its medical centers and in the community. Ongoing VA case management, health, and other supportive services will be made available to homeless veterans at as many as 132 VA Medical Center (VAMC) supportive services sites across the nation. The 2008 Appropriation Act required HUD to ‘‘make such funding available, notwithstanding section 204 (competition provision) of this title, to public housing agencies (PHAs) that partner with eligible VA Medical Centers or other entities as designated by the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, based on geographical need for such assistance as identified by the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, public housing agency administrative performance, and other factors as specified by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in consultation with the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.’’ Based on this language, the VA, in consultation with HUD, identified 132 VAMCs that will participate with the program. In doing so, the VA took into account the population of homeless veterans needing services in the area, the number of homeless veterans served by the homeless programs at each VAMC during Fiscal Years 2006 and FY 2007, geographic distribution, and VA case management resources. There will be at least one site in each of the 50 states and in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. HUD, in consultation with the VA, and in consideration of a PHA’s administrative performance, identified eligible PHAs located in the jurisdiction of the VAMCs and invited them to apply for HUD–VASH vouchers. The number of HUD–VASH vouchers awarded to each PHA was determined by HUD and the VA. Approximately 35 rental vouchers were awarded for each professional, full-time HUD–VASH case manager at the local VAMC. HUD– VASH vouchers may be reallocated in the future based on need and usage. A PHA that participates in the HUD– VASH program must partner with their VASH VAMC. Additional information on program requirements and PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 procedures may be found on HUD’s Web site at www.HUD.gov. II. Special Rules for the HUD–VASH Voucher Program This section sets forth the design features of the HUD–VASH vouchers, including the eligibility of families, portability, case management, and the turnover of these vouchers. The 2008 Appropriation Act states ‘‘that the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development may waive, or specify alternative requirements for (in consultation with the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs), any provision of any statute or regulation that the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development administers in connection with the use of funds made available under this paragraph (except for requirements related to fair housing, nondiscrimination, labor standards, and the environment) upon a finding by the Secretary that any such waivers or alternative requirements are necessary for the effective delivery and administration of such voucher assistance: Provided further, That assistance made available under this paragraph shall continue to remain available for homeless veterans upon turnover.’’ This notice outlines, below, the waivers or alternative requirements determined by the Secretary to be necessary for the effective delivery and administration of the HUD–VASH program. These waivers or alternative requirements are exceptions to the normal HCV requirements, which otherwise govern the provision of HUD– VASH assistance. In addition, a PHA may request additional statutory or regulatory waivers that it determines are necessary for the effective delivery and administration of the program. These requests may be submitted to the Secretary for review and decision through the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing. HUD–VASH vouchers under this part are administered in accordance with the HCV tenant-based rental assistance regulations set forth at 24 CFR part 982. In the HCV program, the PHA pays monthly rental subsidies so that eligible families can afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing. HUD provides housing assistance funds to the PHA, as well as funds for PHA administration of the program. Under the HCV tenant-based program, families select and rent units that meet program housing-quality standards. If the PHA approves a family’s unit and tenancy, the PHA contracts with the owner to make rent subsidy payments (housing assistance payments) directly E:\FR\FM\06MYN1.SGM 06MYN1
