DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Background Expansion of Global Entry Pilot Program The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the United States Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), issued a joint final rule (72 FR 3492; January 25, 2007) pursuant to the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064 (November 25, 2002), and the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act), Public Law 109–347 (October 13, 2006). This rule requires all credentialed merchant mariners and individuals with unescorted access to secure areas of a regulated facility or vessel to obtain a TWIC. In this final rule, on page 3510, TSA and Coast Guard stated that a phased enrollment approach based upon risk assessment and cost/benefit would be used to implement the program nationwide, and that TSA would publish a notice in the Federal Register indicating when enrollment at a specific location will begin and when it is expected to terminate. This notice provides the start date for TWIC initial enrollment at the Port of American Samoa on August 20, 2008. The Coast Guard will publish a separate notice in the Federal Register indicating when facilities within the Captain of the Port Zone Guam including those in the Port of American Samoa must comply with the portions of the final rule requiring TWIC to be used as an access control measure. That notice will be published at least 90 days before compliance is required.

AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:38 Aug 12, 2008 Jkt 214001 SUMMARY: On July 10, 2008, HUD published in the Federal Register the NOFA for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Program. Through this NOFA, HUD is making available approximately $1.42 billion in Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 for the CoC program. The purpose of the CoC program is to reduce the incidence of homelessness in communities by assisting homeless individuals and families to move to self sufficiency and permanent housing. Today’s publication establishes the deadline date for the submission of applications and corrects or clarifies portions of the CoC NOFA published on July 10, 2008. DATES: The application submission date for applications is September 26, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Individuals may direct questions regarding the CoC NOFA to the HUD Field Office serving their area, at the telephone numbers shown in HUD’s Notice of Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA); Policy Requirements and General Section to HUD’s FY2008 NOFAs for Discretionary Programs (General Section) published on March 19, 2008 (73 FR 14883), or may contact the e-snaps Help Desk at 1– 877–6esnaps (1–877–637–6277). Individuals who are hearing- or speechimpaired should use the Information Relay Service at 1–800–877–8339 (these are toll-free numbers). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 30, 2008 (73 FR 23483), HUD published its Notice of FY2008 Opportunity to Register and Other Important Information for Electronic Application Submission for Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs (CoC Early Registration Notice). The CoC Early Registration Notice alerted the public that HUD would require Continuums of Care to submit applications electronically, using esnaps, an electronic system separate from Grants.gov. On July 10, 2008 (73 FR 39840), HUD published its CoC NOFA, making available approximately $1.42 billion in FY 2008 for the CoC program. The purpose of the CoC program is to reduce the incidence of homelessness in communities by assisting homeless individuals and families to move to self sufficiency and permanent housing. In the July 10, 2008, CoC NOFA, HUD stated that the application portion of the e-snaps system had not yet been launched and that HUD, as a result, was unable to establish a due date for the FY2008 CoC competition. HUD stated, however, that it would announce the application due date for the program through separate Federal Register notice. Today’s PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47205 publication establishes the deadline date for the submission of applications. Today’s publication also corrects or clarifies the CoC NOFA published on July 10, 2008. Deadline for Applications 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. Summary of Technical Corrections Today’s publication also corrects or clarifies a number of sections of the July 10, 2008, CoC NOFA. These corrections and clarifications are listed below by page and section. On page 39840, Overview Information, Section F., first column, entitled ‘‘Dates,’’ HUD is revising this section to conform to the deadline date for applications established by today’s publication. HUD had hoped to establish a deadline date at least 60 days from the publication date of today’s publication. While the deadline date established by today’s publication falls short of meeting this goal, HUD has attempted to provide potential CoC applicants 60 days notice of the deadline date by posting the deadline date for applications at http:// www.hud.gov/esnaps. On page 39845, Section III.A.1., HUD is correcting the eligibility chart, fourth column under ‘‘Section 8 SRO’’ to note that homeless individuals eligible for SRO need not be disabled. On page 39851, Section V.1.e., third column, entitled ‘‘Emphasis on Housing Activities,’’ HUD is correcting this paragraph to note that HUD will award points based on the relationship between funds requested for housing activities and funds requested for supportive services activities among both new and renewal projects. On page 39854, Section VI.B.1.a., second column, HUD inadvertently indicated that it will use five measurable indicators related to the Continuum of Care homeless assistance programs based on the Government Performance and Results Act. In fact, HUD will use four indicators. Accordingly, the Notice of HUD’s Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Program, published on July 10, 2008, beginning at 73 FR 39840, is corrected as follows: E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1
