Open Meeting of the OTS Minority Depository Institutions Advisory Committee, 9871 [E9-4814]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 43 / Friday, March 6, 2009 / Notices Commitment for Use Deadline Section 1339(h)(4) of the Act states: ‘‘Amounts made available for grants under this section shall be committed for use within 2 years of the date of such allocation.’’ The CDFJ Fund welcomes comments regarding how the term ‘‘committed’’ should be defined, and how it can be verified, for the purposes of this requirement. Prohibited Uses Section 1339(h)(5)–(6) of the Act lists prohibited uses with respect to grants awarded under this program. Are there any additional prohibitions or limitations that should be applied? For example, there are no stated limitations regarding the portions of Capital Magnet Fund grants that may be retained by the awardee to cover operating costs. Should the CDFJ Fund permit a set portion of awards to cover operating costs? If so, what percentage of the funds should be allowed? Should awardees be restricted in the level of fees they charge to sub recipients/endusers? mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Section 1339(h)(8) of the Act provides for accountability standards with respect to tracking the use of award dollars, as well as remedies in the event that an awardee misuses funds. The CDFI Fund welcomes comments on how to administer awards and monitor the deployment of funds awarded under the Capital Magnet Fund, particularly with respect to the following questions: (a) What documentation should be required to demonstrate that funds awarded under the Capital Magnet Fund have been committed? (b) What types of documentation should be required to demonstrate completion of projects? (c) What types of documentation should be required to demonstrate satisfaction of the affordability requirement related to housing developed, preserved, rehabilitated, or purchased with the support of Capital Magnet Fund awards? (d) What support, if any, would applicants and awardees like to see from the CDFI Fund at the post-award stage? (e) What specific industry standards for impact measures (units produced, percentage of units affordable to lowincome persons; time to complete; etc.) should the CDFI Fund adopt for evaluating and monitoring projects funded under the Capital Magnet Fund? 16:20 Mar 05, 2009 Jkt 217001 Authority: 12 U.S.C. 4569.
