ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: On September 9, 2010 (75 FR 54902), HUD published a notice designating ‘‘Difficult Development Areas’’ (DDAs) for 2011. HUD makes new DDA designations annually for purposes of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) under Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC) (26 U.S.C. 42). HUD’s September 9, 2010, notice also provided that designations of ‘‘Qualified Census Tracts’’ (QCTs) under IRC Section 42 published October 6, 2009 (74 FR 51304), remain in effect. HUD’s September 9, 2010, notice included a summary of the LIHTC and an explanation of HUD’s methodology in designating DDAs. HUD’s September 9, 2010, notice, however, inadvertently omitted the tables listing the metropolitan and nonmetropolitan DDAs for 2011. For the convenience of the public, today’s Federal Register notice republishes HUD’s DDA notice in its entirety, and includes the tables listing metropolitan and nonmetropolitan DDAs. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions on how areas are designated and on geographic definitions, contact Michael K. Hollar, Senior Economist, Economic Development and Public Finance Division, Office of Policy Development and Research, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 8234, Washington, DC 20410–6000; telephone number 202–402–5878, or send an email to Michael.K.Hollar@hud.gov. For specific legal questions pertaining to Section 42, contact Branch 5, Office of the Associate Chief Counsel, Passthroughs and Special Industries, Internal Revenue Service, 1111 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20224; telephone number 202–622– 3040, fax number 202–622–4753. For questions about the ‘‘HUB Zones’’ program, contact Mariana Pardo, Assistant Administrator for Procurement Policy, Office of Government Contracting, Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street, SW., Suite 8800, Washington, DC 20416; telephone number 202–205– SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57481 8885, fax number 202–205–7167, or send an e-mail to hubzone@sba.gov. A text telephone is available for persons with hearing or speech impairments at 202–708–8339. (These are not toll-free telephone numbers.) Additional copies of this notice are available through HUD User at 800–245–2691 for a small fee to cover duplication and mailing costs. Copies Available Electronically: This notice and additional information about DDAs and QCTs are available electronically on the Internet at http:// www.huduser.org/datasets/qct.html. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Document This notice designates DDAs for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The designations of DDAs in this notice are based on final Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Fair Market Rents (FMRs), FY2010 income limits, and 2000 Census population counts, as explained below. In accordance with the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 (GO Zone Act) (Pub. L. 109–135, approved December 21, 2005), as amended by the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans’ Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act of 2007, (Pub. L. 110–28, approved, May 25, 2007), GO Zone DDAs expire on December 31, 2010. Thus, this notice does not designate GO Zone DDAs. 2000 Census Data from the 2000 Census on total population of metropolitan areas and nonmetropolitan areas are used in the designation of DDAs. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) first published new metropolitan area definitions incorporating 2000 Census data in OMB Bulletin No. 03–04 on June 6, 2003, and updated them periodically through OMB Bulletin No. 09–01 on November 20, 2008. The FY2010 FMRs and FY2010 income limits used to designate DDAs are based on these new metropolitan statistical area (MSA) definitions, with modifications to account for substantial differences in rental housing markets (and, in some cases, median income levels) within MSAs. Background The U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and its Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are authorized to interpret and enforce the provisions of the IRC, including the LIHTC found at Section 42. The Secretary of HUD is required to designate DDAs and QCTs by IRC Section 42(d)(5)(B). In order to assist in understanding HUD’s mandated E:\FR\FM\21SEN1.SGM 21SEN1
