The country of origin of the remanufactured toner cartridges for purposes of U.S. Government procurement is Japan. We find that the image drums are substantially transformed into products of the United States when they undergo the described remanufacturing operations in the United States. Therefore, the country of origin of the remanufactured image drums is the United States. Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Any party-at-interest may, within 30 days after publication of the Federal Register notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

In the May 13, 2009, notice, HUD announced that it would begin soliciting applications beginning on June 15, 2009. This notice announces that, based on the funds remaining available, HUD will cease accepting applications as of November 18, 2009.

Background Title XII of Division A of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–5) (Recovery Act) authorizes funding for GRP, a Recovery Act program by which HUD makes loans and grants and takes a variety of other actions to facilitate utility-saving retrofits and other retrofits that produce environmental benefits, in certain existing HUD-assisted multifamily housing. The funding provided for retrofits is designed to result in property that reduces energy demand, costs less to operate, improves the residents’ quality of life, and reduces its impact on the environment. By notice issued May 13, 2009, HUD announced the availability of funding GRP. (See http://www.hud.gov/offices/ adm/hudclips/notices/hsg/files/09– 02HSGN.pdf). In the May 13, 2009, notice, HUD announced that GRP would be administered by the Office of Affordable Housing Preservation. In the May 13, 2009, notice, HUD also announced that it would begin accepting applications for GRP funding on June 15, 2009, on a first come, first serve basis, and would continue to accept applications subject to the availability of funding. In this notice, HUD announces that, based on remaining GRP funds available, HUD will cease accepting applications as of November 18, 2009. Dated: November 9, 2009. Theodore K. Toon, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Affordable Housing Preservation. [FR Doc. E9–27416 Filed 11–13–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4210–67–P 58973 SUMMARY: On May 4, 2009, HUD posted its NSP2 NOFA at http://www.hud.gov/ nsp and announced the availability of the NOFA on May 7, 2009 (74 FR 21377). The NSP2 NOFA announced the availability of approximately $1.93 billion available in competitive grants authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–5, approved February 17, 2009). The NSP2 NOFA was corrected by Notice posted on the HUD website and announced on June 11, 2009 (74 FR 28715). Today’s Federal Register publication announces that HUD has posted a notice making further corrections to the NSP2 NOFA. Specifically, the Notice (1) corrects an inconsistency in the NSP2 NOFA regarding when the lead member of a consortium must enter into consortium funding agreements with consortium members; and (2) extends the deadline for submitting such agreements to HUD to January 29, 2010. This notice only affects applications for funding that have already been submitted to HUD by consortium applicants. HUD notes that the deadline for applications was July 17, 2009, and, as a result, will not accept new applications for funding. The notice correcting the NSP2 NOFA is available on the HUD Web site at http://www.hud.gov/recovery.
