This notice covers waivers of regulations granted by HUD from July 1, 2009 through September 30, 2009. For ease of reference, the waivers granted by HUD are listed by HUD program office (for example, the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, the Office of Housing, and the Office of Public and Indian Housing, etc.). Within each program office grouping, the waivers are listed sequentially by the regulatory section of title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that is being waived. For example, a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would be listed before a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 570. Where more than one regulatory provision is involved in the grant of a particular waiver request, the action is listed under the section number of the first regulatory requirement that appears in 24 CFR and that is being waived. For example, a waiver of both § 58.73 and PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4703 § 58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under § 58.73.

Project/Activity: Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) grantee, the Town of Union, New York, requested a waiver of the resubmission deadline. Nature of Requirement: Section IV.F.2 of the HPRP Notice provides that each eligible HPRP grantee may revise and resubmit an application that HUD has disapproved within 15 days of the date that it was notified of the disapproval. Granted By: Mercedes Marquez, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development. Date Granted: August 12, 2009. Reason Waived: The Town of Union requested an additional 15 days to submit a new application meeting HUD’s program requirements. HUD determined that there was good cause for waiving the 15-day resubmission deadline based on the following: The Town of Union submitted a Substantial Amendment by the May 18, 2009, application submission deadline, which proposed using all HPRP funds to purchase furnaces for low-income elderly homeowners. On May 14, 2009, the Town of Union also requested a waiver of any prohibition on funding this kind of activity. On July 2, 2009, HUD wrote to the Town of Union indicating that its request for a waiver of the eligible activities under the Notice was still under review. On July 9, 2009, the Town of Union requested an additional 15 days to resubmit an approvable application containing eligible activities should HUD both disapprove its application and deny its waiver request. On July 14, 2009, HUD: (1) Disapproved the HPRP application based upon the ineligibility of the proposed funding of furnaces for elderly E:\FR\FM\31DEN2.SGM 31DEN2 erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES2 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 250 / Thursday, December 31, 2009 / Notices people; and (b) denied the request for a waiver of the Notice’s eligible activity standards to permit the funding of furnaces for elderly persons. The timing of HUD’s application disapproval and the denial of the waiver request came too late for the Town of Union to effectively revise and resubmit a new HPRP application within the remaining time available under the original 15-day resubmission period.

The City of Seattle had expressed an interest in purchasing the property. Waiver of this regulation allowed the sale of this delinquent, unsubsidized mortgage to the City of Seattle. Nature of Requirement: FHA’s regulations governing the sale of HUD– Held mortgages are set forth in 24 CFR part 290, subpart B. Section 290.30(a) of those regulations state that ‘‘[e]xcept as otherwise provided in Section 290.31(a)(2), HUD will sell HUD–Held multifamily mortgages on a competitive basis.’’ Section 290.31(a)(2) permits ‘‘negotiated’’ sales to State or local governments for mortgage loans that are current and secured by subsidized projects, provided such loans are sold with FHA insurance. Section 290.35(b)(2) governs the sale of delinquent mortgages securing subsidized projects, ‘‘(1) However, delinquent mortgages will not be sold if: (1) HUD believes that foreclosure is unavoidable; and (2) the project securing the mortgage is occupied by very low-income tenants who are not receiving housing assistance and would be likely to pay rent in excess of 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income if HUD sold the mortgage.’’ Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing— Federal Housing Commissioner. Date Granted: September 24, 2009. Reason Waived: This regulation was waived in order to allow the noncompetitive sale of John C. Cannon House Apartments to the City of Seattle. Waiver of this requirement would produce budget savings by generating proceeds to the U.S. Treasury, reduce the number of notes in the HUD–Held mortgage inventory and prevent the loss of assisted living units for families that might take place if a profit-motivated investor were to buy the note and foreclose.

Project/Activity: Woodside Village, Danville, Virginia—Section 8 Number: VA36–H027–081. This non-insured subsidized property had not undergone significant rehabilitation since it was constructed. Waiver of this regulation allowed for much needed repairs of the property. Nature of Requirement: HUD’s regulation at 883.205(c) concerns adjustments to reflect the actual cost of permanent financing. After the project is permanently financed, the HFA shall submit a certification as to the actual financing terms. Subsection (1) relates to the actual debt service under the permanent financing. If the actual debt service under the permanent financing is lower than the anticipated debt service on which the Contract Rents were based, the initial Contract Rents or the Contract Rents currently in effect shall be reduced commensurately, and the amount of savings shall be credited to the project account. Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing— Federal Housing Commissioner. Date Granted: August 4, 2009. Reason Waived: This regulation was waived in order to permit the Section 8 contract rents to remain at the current levels in order to allow the owner to obtain financing at a lower interest rate to rehabilitate the property. The proposed rehabilitation is to be funded through Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC). An affordability use restriction is to accompany an award of the LIHTC, preserving the property as a long-term, well-maintained source of affordable housing. Contact: Howard D.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 106 of the Department of Housing and Urban Development 
Reform Act of 1989 (the HUD Reform Act) requires HUD to publish 
quarterly Federal Register notices of all regulatory waivers that HUD 
has approved. Each notice covers the quarterly period since the 
previous Federal Register notice. The purpose of this notice is to 
comply with the requirements of section 106 of the HUD Reform Act. This 
notice contains a list of regulatory waivers granted by HUD during the 
period beginning on July 1, 2009 and ending on September 30, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general information about this 
notice, contact Camille E. Acevedo, Associate General Counsel for 
Legislation and Regulations, Office of General Counsel, Department of 
Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street, SW., Room 10282, 
Washington, DC 20410-0500, telephone 202-708-1793 (this is not a toll-
free number). Persons with hearing- or speech-impairments may access 
this number through TTY by calling the toll-free Federal Information 
Relay Service at 800-877-8339.
    For information concerning a particular waiver that was granted and 
for which public notice is provided in this document, contact the 
person whose name and address follow the description of the waiver 
granted in the accompanying list of waivers that have been granted in 
the third quarter of calendar year 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act added a new section 7(q) to the 
Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(q)), 
which provides that:
    1. Any waiver of a regulation must be in writing and must specify 
the grounds for approving the waiver;
    2. Authority to approve a waiver of a regulation may be delegated 
by the Secretary only to an individual of Assistant Secretary or 
equivalent rank, and the person to whom authority to waive is delegated 
must also have authority to issue the particular regulation to be 
waived;
    3. Not less than quarterly, the Secretary must notify the public of 
all waivers of regulations that HUD has approved, by publishing a 
notice in the Federal Register. These notices (each covering the period 
since the most recent previous notification) shall:
    a. Identify the project, activity, or undertaking involved;
    b. Describe the nature of the provision waived and the designation 
of the provision;
    c. Indicate the name and title of the person who granted the waiver 
request;
    d. Describe briefly the grounds for approval of the request; and
    e. State how additional information about a particular waiver may 
be obtained.
    Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act also contains requirements 
applicable to waivers of HUD handbook provisions that are not relevant 
to the purpose of this notice.
    This notice follows procedures provided in HUD's Statement of 
Policy on Waiver of Regulations and Directives issued on April 22, 1991 
(56 FR 16337), as revised and updated by the notice issued on December 
17, 2008 (73 FR 76674). In accordance with those procedures and with 
the requirements of section 106 of the HUD Reform Act, waivers of 
regulations are granted by the Assistant Secretary with jurisdiction 
over the regulations for which a waiver was requested. In those cases 
in which a General Deputy Assistant Secretary granted the waiver, the 
General Deputy Assistant Secretary was serving in the absence of the 
Assistant Secretary in accordance with the office's Order of 
Succession.
    This notice covers waivers of regulations granted by HUD from July 
1, 2009 through September 30, 2009. For ease of reference, the waivers 
granted by HUD are listed by HUD program office (for example, the 
Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Fair 
Housing and Equal Opportunity, the Office of Housing, and the Office of 
Public and Indian Housing, etc.). Within each program office grouping, 
the waivers are listed sequentially by the regulatory section of title 
24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that is being waived. For 
example, a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would be listed 
before a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 570.
    Where more than one regulatory provision is involved in the grant 
of a particular waiver request, the action is listed under the section 
number of the first regulatory requirement that appears in 24 CFR and 
that is being waived. For example, a waiver of both Sec.  58.73 and 
Sec.  58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under Sec.  58.73.
    Waiver of regulations that involve the same initial regulatory 
citation are in time sequence beginning with the earliest-dated 
regulatory waiver.
    Should HUD receive additional information about waivers granted 
during the period covered by this report (the third quarter of calendar 
year 2009) before the next report is published (the fourth quarter of 
calendar year 2009), HUD will include any additional waivers granted 
for the second quarter in the next report.
    Accordingly, information about approved waiver requests pertaining 
to HUD regulations is provided in the Appendix that follows this 
notice.

    Dated: December 23, 2009.
Helen R. Kanovsky,
General Counsel.

    Project/Activity: The City of Port Arthur, Texas requested a waiver 
of its June 30, 2009, deadline for expending more than $31,000 of HOME 
Investment Partnerships program funds. Disruptions caused by hurricanes 
Rita and Ike caused delays in committing and expending HOME funds.
    Nature of Requirement: The HOME regulations at 24 CFR 
92.500(d)(1)(C) require that a participating jurisdiction (PJ) expend 
its annual allocation of HOME funds within five years after HUD 
notifies the PJ that HUD has

[[Page 69469]]

executed the jurisdiction's HOME Investment Partnerships Agreement.
    Granted By: Mercedes M. M[aacute]rquez, Assistant Secretary for 
Community Planning and Development.
    Date Granted: September 25, 2009.
    Reason Waived: The waiver of the City's FY 2004 HOME expenditure 
deadline ensures that funds necessary for recovery from two major 
disasters are not deobligated.

     Regulation: Notice of Allocations, Application Procedures, 
and Requirements for Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing 
Program Grantees under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 
2009 (Recovery Act), issued March 19, 2009 (HPRP Notice).
    Project/Activity: Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing 
Program (HPRP) grantee, the City of Jamestown, New York, requested a 
waiver of the application deadline.
    Nature of Requirement: Section IV.E.3 of the HPRP Notice provides 
that each eligible HPRP grantee must ensure that its complete 
application is postmarked no later than May 18, 2009, in order to 
receive funding.
    Granted By: Nelson R. Bregon, General Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Community and Planning Development.
    Date Granted: June 25, 2009.
    Reason Waived: HUD approved the waiver because an extension of the 
application deadline would enable the City of Jamestown to fully 
develop an HPRP program by involving the local Continuum of Care 
partners through the Chautauqua County Homeless Coalition and providing 
adequate notice and opportunity for citizen participation in finalizing 
the Substantial Amendment.

Program (HPRP) grantee, the City of Columbia, South Carolina, requested 
a waiver of the application deadline.
    Nature of Requirement: Section IV.E.3 of the HPRP Notice provides

receive funding.
    Granted By: Nelson R. Bregon, General Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Community Planning Development.
    Date Granted: June 25, 2009.
    Reason Waived: Due to a recent reorganization of the City's 
Community Development Department, the City was unable to submit a 
Substantial Amendment to its 2008 Consolidated Action Plan by May 18, 
2009, deadline. HUD approved this waiver because the need for the 
waiver was due to an unavoidable administrative barrier. The City hand-
delivered its Amendment to the local Field Office on May 19, 2009.

Programs, Office of Community Planning and Development, Department of

    Reason Waived: On June 18, 2009, HUD disapproved the City's 
submission of the Substantial Amendment to the Consolidated Plan 2008 
Action Plan for HPRP because it was not responsive to one question. The 
revision was due on July 3, 2009, but the City indicated that the mayor 
is the authorized representative for the application and was 
unavailable to sign the grantee's revised Substantial Amendment for 
HPRP by the due date of July 3, 2009. The city submitted its revision 
on July 8, 2009. HUD approved this waiver because the need for the 
waiver was due to an unavoidable administrative barrier.

    Project/Activity: Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing 
Program (HPRP) grantee, the Town of Union, New York, requested a waiver 
of the resubmission deadline.
    Nature of Requirement: Section IV.F.2 of the HPRP Notice provides 
that each eligible HPRP grantee may revise and resubmit an application 
that HUD has disapproved within 15 days of the date that it was 
notified of the disapproval.
    Granted By: Mercedes Marquez, Assistant Secretary for Community 
Planning and Development.
    Date Granted: August 12, 2009.
    Reason Waived: The Town of Union requested an additional 15 days to 
submit a new application meeting HUD's program requirements. HUD 
determined that there was good cause for waiving the 15-day 
resubmission deadline based on the following: The Town of Union 
submitted a Substantial Amendment by the May 18, 2009, application 
submission deadline, which proposed using all HPRP funds to purchase 
furnaces for low-income elderly homeowners. On May 14, 2009, the Town 
of Union also requested a waiver of any prohibition on funding this 
kind of activity. On July 2, 2009, HUD wrote to the Town of Union 
indicating that its request for a waiver of the eligible activities 
under the Notice was still under review. On July 9, 2009, the Town of 
Union requested an additional 15 days to resubmit an approvable 
application containing eligible activities should HUD both disapprove 
its application and deny its waiver request. On July 14, 2009, HUD: (1) 
Disapproved the HPRP application based upon the ineligibility of the 
proposed funding of furnaces for elderly

[[Page 69473]]

people; and (b) denied the request for a waiver of the Notice's 
eligible activity standards to permit the funding of furnaces for 
elderly persons. The timing of HUD's application disapproval and the 
denial of the waiver request came too late for the Town of Union to 
effectively revise and resubmit a new HPRP application within the 
remaining time available under the original 15-day resubmission period.

    Project/Activity: Property Flipping, Atlanta, GA.
    Nature of the Requirement: FHA's property flipping regulation 
restricts the eligibility for FHA mortgage insurance, for those 
properties purchased and re-sold within 90 days. The regulation exempts 
government entities and nonprofits approved to purchase HUD real estate 
owned (REO) properties; however, the restriction still exists for 
private entities and especially those working on behalf of local 
governments under the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The waiver 
request is to exempt a private entity working on behalf of a local 
government for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
    Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing--
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 14, 2009.
    Reason Waived: The regulation was waived to allow for purchase and 
resale of REO properties within 90 days under the Neighborhood 
Stabilization Program, which furthers the purposes of this program

[[Page 69475]]

designated Flood Hazard Areas in the State of Louisiana.
    Nature of the Requirement: The National Flood Insurance Program 
(NFIP) installation requirements for manufactured homes and the flood 
hazard regulations for one and two single family dwellings are less 
onerous than the flood hazard regulations for manufactured homes found 
at 24 CFR 203.43f, which specify that the finished grade beneath the 
manufactured home must be at or above the 100 year return frequency 
flood elevation. Extending the waiver to 24 CFR 203.43f permits 
manufactured homes that are located in FEMA designated flood hazard 
areas to be in compliance with the less onerous NFIP requirements and 
serves to assist in the reconstruction of homes impacted by Hurricane 
Katrina in the State of Louisiana.
    Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing--
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: August 11, 2009.
    Reason Waived: Extending the waiver to 24 CFR 203.43f permits

areas to be in compliance with the less onerous NFIP requirements and 
serves to assist in the reconstruction/replacement of homes impacted by 
Hurricane Katrina in the State of Louisiana with an affordable housing 
type.

Washington, DC 20410-8000, telephone 202-402-2137.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 206.32(a).
    Project/Activity: The waiver is applicable to certain borrowers in 
the State of Maine under FHA's Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) 
Program.
    Nature of Requirement: FHA's regulation 24 CFR 206.23(a) require 
that there be no outstanding or unpaid obligations, incurred by the 
HECM mortgagor, in connection with the HECM transaction. The borrowers 
obtained a negotiated short payoff on their forward mortgage from their 
existing lender, CitiFinancial. They are seeking HECM financing which 
will be used to satisfy their existing mortgage and outstanding 
judgments. The HECM lender, American Home Bank, worked with Maine 
Stream Finance, a Community Development Financial Institution, in order 
for the homeowners to obtain subordinate financing, enabling them to 
satisfy certain financial obligations, and, in turn, close the HECM 
transaction and save their home from foreclosure.
    Granted By: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing--
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 10, 2009.
    Reason Waived: The regulation was waived to prevent the borrowers

    Contact: Kathy Hardy, Home Valuation Policy Division, Office of 
Single Family Program Development, Office of Housing, Department of 
Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 9241, 
Washington, DC 20410-8000, telephone (202) 708-2121.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 219.220(b)(1995), 24 CFR Part 
219.320(1995) and 24 CFR 219.335(a) (1995).
    Project/Activity: Lakeview Towers, Chicago, Illinois--FHA Project 
Number 071-10021/071-35743. The property has 500 units comprised of two 
25-story high rise towers. The property is in need of rehabilitation to 
continue as a well-maintained source of affordable housing.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 219.220(b) (1995) of FHA's 
regulations, which governs the repayment of operating assistance 
provided under the Flexible Subsidy Program for Troubled Projects prior 
to May 1, 1996, states: ``Assistance that has been paid to a project 
owner under this subpart must be repaid at the earlier of the 
expiration of the term of the mortgage, termination of these actions 
would typically terminate FHA involvement with the property, and the 
Flexible Subsidy loan would be repaid, in whole, at that time.''
    Section 219.320 (1995) of FHA's regulation entitled ``Loan terms 
and conditions'' will continue to govern the rights and obligations of 
housing owners, tenants and [HUD] with respect to units and projects 
assisted under the Flexible Subsidy Program * * *'' The regulation 
applies to capital improvement loans made pursuant to Section 201(k) of 
the Housing and Community Development Amendments of 1978.
    Section 219.335(a) (1995) of FHA's regulation entitled 
``Operations'' provides that interest on the capital improvement loan 
starts to accrue and the loan amortization period begins when the loan 
proceeds have been spent.
    Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing--
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: August 24, 2009.
    Reason Waived: This regulatory waiver was granted to preserve this 
much needed affordable housing. The owners of Lakeview Towers proposed 
to extend the term for repayment of the Flexible Subsidy loans for 3 
years to match the term of the new section 241(a) loan and make capital 
improvements to the property. These waivers were allowed because, 
without them, the owner would not have had the necessary funds to 
perform needed fa[ccedil]ade repairs and rehabilitation of a portion of 
the kitchen and bathrooms in the property. Providing these waivers 
allowed the owner to obtain financing to perform substantial 
rehabilitation of the property and allow the amortization of the 
flexible subsidy loan with the new section 241(a) loan.
    Contact: Howard D. Mayfield, Deputy Director, Office of Asset 
Management, Office of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban 
Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410-
8000, telephone (202) 708-3730.

     Regulation: 24 FR 290.30(a).
    Project/Activity: Park Lee Apartments, Phoenix, Arizona--FHA 
Project Number 123-35418. This insured loan went into default and was 
assigned to HUD. Waiver of this regulation allowed the City of Phoenix 
to purchase this defaulted, unsubsidized mortgage loan on a 
noncompetitive basis.
    Nature of Requirement: FHA's regulations governing the sale of HUD-
Held mortgages are set forth in 24 CFR part 290, subpart B. Section 
290.30(a) of those regulations state that ``[e]xcept as otherwise 
provided in Section 290.31(a)(2), HUD will sell HUD-Held multifamily 
mortgages on a competitive basis.'' Section 290.31(a)(2) permits 
``negotiated'' sales to State or local governments for mortgage loans 
that are current and secured by subsidized projects, provided such 
loans are sold with FHA insurance.
    Granted by: Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing--
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: July 7, 2009.
    Reason Waived: This regulation was waived in order to allow the 
sale of Park Lee Apartments to the City of Phoenix, thereby preventing 
foreclosure of the property. The city plans to become the managing 
member of the current owner entity and work with it to infuse funds to 
complete rehabilitation, thus making the property an asset to the 
community and preserving its affordability.

Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 6160, Washington, DC 20410-

that are current and secured by subsidized projects, provided such 
loans are sold with FHA insurance.
    Granted by: Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing--

``negotiated'' sales to State or local governments for mortgage loans 
that are current and secured by subsidized projects, provided such 
loans are sold with FHA insurance.
    Section 290.35(b)(2) governs the sale of delinquent mortgages 
securing subsidized projects, ``(1) However, delinquent mortgages will 
not be sold if: (1) HUD believes that foreclosure is unavoidable; and 
(2) the project securing the mortgage is occupied by very low-income 
tenants who are not receiving housing assistance and would be likely to 
pay rent in excess of 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income if 
HUD sold the mortgage.''
    Granted by: David H. Stevens, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 24, 2009.
    Reason Waived: This regulation was waived in order to allow the 
noncompetitive sale of John C. Cannon House Apartments to the City of 
Seattle. Waiver of this requirement would produce budget savings by

units for families that might take place if a profit-motivated investor 
were to buy the note and foreclose.

Held mortgages are set forth in 24 CFR part 290, subpart B. Section 
290.30(a) of those regulations state that ``[e]xcept as otherwise 
provided in Section 290.31(a)(2), HUD will sell HUD-Held multifamily 
mortgages on a competitive basis.'' Section 290.31(a)(2) permits 
``negotiated'' sales to State or local governments for mortgage loans 
that are current and secured by subsidized projects, provided such 
loans are sold with FHA insurance.
