FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding the CDFI Fund and the Capital Magnet Fund may be downloaded from the CDFI Fund’s Web site at http://www.cdfifundgov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Capital Magnet Fund was established through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, which added Section 1339 of the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992 (the Act), 12 U.S.C. 4569. Through the Capital Magnet Fund, the CDFI Fund will carry out a competitive grant program for CDFIs and nonprofit organizations (if one of their principal purposes is the development or management of affordable housing) to attract private capital for and increase investment in the development, preservation, rehabilitation, and purchase of affordable housing for primarily extremely low-, very low-, and lowincome families; and economic development activities or community service facilities (such as day care centers, workforce development centers, and health care clinics) which in conjunction with affordable housing activities will implement a concerted strategy to stabilize or revitalize a lowincome area or underserved rural area. Section 1339 established the Capital Magnet Fund as a program that will be administered by the CDFI Fund. The CDFI Fund invites and encourages comments and suggestions germane to the mission, purpose, and implementation of the Capital Magnet Fund. The CDFI Fund is particularly interested in comments in the following areas: Eligible Use of Funds Section 1339(c) of the Act states that Capital Magnet Fund grants shall be used to attract private capital for and increase investment in: (a) The development, preservation, rehabilitation, or purchase of affordable housing for primarily extremely low-, very low-, and low-income families; and (b) economic development activities or PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9869 community service facilities, such as daycare centers, workforce development centers, and health care clinics, which in conjunction with affordable housing activities implement a concerted strategy to stabilize or revitalize a lowincome area or underserved rural area. Section 1339(f) of the Act states that grant amounts awarded from the Capital Magnet Fund may be used in furtherance of the purposes above, including for the following eligible uses: (1) To provide loan loss reserves; (2) To capitalize a revolving loan fund; (3) To capitalize an affordable housing fund; (4) To capitalize a fund to support economic development activities or community service facilities, as described in Section 1339(c)(2) of the Act; and (5) For risk-sharing loans. The CDFI Fund welcomes comments on issues relating to the eligibility of certain activities, particularly with respect to the following questions: (a) What definition should the CDFI Fund use to assess what constitutes ‘‘affordable housing?’’ What affordability thresholds or restrictions (if any) should the Fund require, and for how long a period should these be in place? (b) How should ‘‘primarily’’ be defined, as such term is used in Section 1339(c)(l)? What are the appropriate minimum levels of targeting that each project should be required to achieve (e.g., 50 percent of housing units are affordable to low-income persons, 20 percent of housing units are available to extremely low-income persons, etc.)? (c) How should ‘‘preservation’’ be defined, as such term is used in Section 1339(c)(1)? Should it include the refinancing of single- or multi-family mortgages as eligible activities? (d) How should ‘‘rehabilitation’’ be defined, as such term is used in Section 1339(c)(1)? (e) Capital Magnet Fund grants may be used to finance economic development activities and/or community service facilities ‘‘in conjunction with affordable housing activities.’’ (i) What restrictions (if any) should the CDFI Fund place on the percentage of award dollars that an awardee may apply towards economic development activities and/or community service facilities (e.g., no more than 20 percent of a total award)? (ii) Should the CDFI Fund support economic development activities/ community service facilities in conjunction with affordable housing activities financed by sources other than E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1
