Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2011 / Notices • Regulation: 24 CFR 983.51. Project/Activity: Walworth County Housing Authority (WCHA), Walworth County, WI. Nature of Requirement: This regulation requires competitive selection of owner proposals for projectbased voucher (PBV) assistance unless the units were competitively selected under a similar competitive process for local, state or federal funds. Granted By: Sandra B. Henriquez, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing. Date Granted: February 7, 2011. Reason Waived: Hartwell Apartments serves single, disabled individuals who were chronically homeless. The project was funded under the Continuum of Care (COC) Homeless Assistance Program; however, in 2008 no funds could be requested under the COC for leasing or operations which greatly impacted the fiscal health of the building. A waiver was granted so that rental assistance could be funded through the PBV program for this unique project with its vulnerable population.
