Background
    This notice is revising section II.M of the Unified NSP Notice to 
include providing for corrective action(s) or sanctions among HUD's 
remedial actions for failure of NSP1 grantees to meet the 4 year 
expenditure requirement. As provided in the ``Background'' of section M 
of the Unified NSP Notice, HUD intended that recapture, corrective 
actions or sanctions be among the available remedies for all NSP 
grantees. However, two of these remedies were inadvertently omitted 
from the requirement. This revision adds the omitted language.
Revised Requirement
    Section II.M.2 of the Unified NSP Notice is revised to read:
    Timely expenditure of NSP1 funds. The timely distribution or 
expenditure requirements of sections 24 CFR 570.494 and 570.902 are 
waived to the extent necessary to allow the following alternative 
requirement: All NSP1 grantees must expend on eligible NSP activities 
an amount equal to or greater than the initial allocation of NSP1 funds 
within 4 years of receipt of those funds or HUD will recapture and 
reallocate the amount of funds not expended or provide for other 
corrective action(s) or sanction.
