Download as PDF 47206 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 157 / Wednesday, August 13, 2008 / Notices On page 39840, Overview Information, Section F., first column, entitled ‘‘Dates,’’ HUD is revising this section to read as follows: F. Dates: The application deadline date for the CoC NOFA is September 26, 2008. Electronic applications must be received by e-snaps by 4 p.m. eastern time on the deadline date. HUD will close e-snaps at 4:01 p.m. eastern time. Similarly, paper applications from applicants granted a waiver from the electronic application submission requirement must be received by HUD by 4 p.m. eastern standard time on the deadline date. On page 39845, Section III.A.1., HUD is correcting the eligibility chart, fourth column under ‘‘Section 8 SRO,’’ to read as follows: Elements Section 8 SRO Authorizing Legislation ............................................................................. Section 441 of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 11401. 24 CFR part 882, subpart H, except that all persons receiving rental assistance must meet the McKinney-Vento definition of homelessness. • PHAs. • Private nonprofit organizations. • SRO housing. • Rental assistance. • Homeless individuals. • N/A. • 10 years. Implementing Regulations ........................................................................ Eligible Applicant(s) .................................................................................. ebenthall on PRODPC60 with NOTICES Eligible Component(s) .............................................................................. Eligible Activities, See footnotes 1, 2, and 3 ........................................... Eligible Populations, See footnote 2 ........................................................ Populations Given Special Consideration ................................................ Initial Term of Assistance, See footnote 4 ............................................... On page 39851, Section V.1.e., third column, entitled ‘‘Emphasis on Housing Activities,’’ HUD is correcting this paragraph to read as follows: e. Emphasis on Housing Activities: HUD will award 18 points based on the relationship between funds requested for housing activities (i.e., transitional and permanent) and funds requested for supportive service activities. Housing emphasis will be calculated on eligible new and renewal projects within FPRN. HUD will count as housing activity all approvable requests for funds for rental assistance and approvable requests for acquisition, rehabilitation, construction, leasing and operations when used in connection with housing. HMIS costs and administrative costs will be excluded from this calculation. CoCs are not required to have 100 percent housing activities to receive the full 18 points for this scoring criteria. On page 39854, Section VI.B.1.a., second column, HUD is correcting this paragraph to read as follows: a. The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requires Federal agencies to measure the performance of their programs. HUD captures this information not only from monitoring visits and APRs, but also on the data gathered in annual competitions. For example, the description of methods used in determining the project priority order submitted in Exhibit 1 provides verification that projects are performing satisfactorily and are effectively addressing the needs for which they were designed. HUD’s homeless assistance programs are measured in 2008 by the objective to ‘‘end chronic homelessness and to move homeless families and individuals to permanent housing.’’ This objective has a number of measurable indicators, four of which VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:38 Aug 12, 2008 Jkt 214001 relate directly to the Continuum of Care homeless assistance programs. These four indicators, as described below, will be collected in Exhibit 1: (1) At least 415 functioning CoC communities will have a functional Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) by Fiscal Year 2008. (2) The percentage of formerly homeless individuals who remain housed in HUD permanent housing projects for at least 6 months will be at least 71.5 percent. (3) The percentage of homeless persons who have moved from HUD transitional housing into permanent housing will be at least 63.5 percent. (4) The employment rate of persons exiting HUD homeless assistance projects will be at least 19 percent. Dated: August 6, 2008. William H. Eargle, Jr., Deputy Assistant Secretary for Operations, Community Planning and Development. [FR Doc.
