SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 3601–19 (the Fair Housing Act) provides the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development with responsibility to accept and investigate complaints alleging discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin in the sale, rental, or financing of most housing. In addition, the Fair Housing Act directs the Secretary to coordinate with State and local agencies administering fair housing laws and to cooperate with and render technical assistance to public or private entities carrying out programs to prevent and eliminate discriminatory housing practices. Section 561 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3616, established FHIP to strengthen the Department’s enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and to further fair housing. This program assists projects and activities designed to enhance compliance with the Fair Housing Act and substantially equivalent state and local fair housing laws. Implementing regulations are found at 24 CFR Part 125. For FY 2013, the Department published two Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) NOFAs.

Funding availability for discretionary grants for the FHIP NOFA and CDC NOFA included: the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) ($24,765,000), the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI) ($3,771,575), and the Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI) ($9,940,420). The total available FHOI funding amount also includes the available CDC NOFA funding. This Notice thereby announces grant awards for the FY 2013 FHIP and CDC NOFAs of approximately $38,476,995. For the FY 2013, the Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY 2013 NOFAs. As a result, HUD has funded the applications announced in Appendix A, and in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545).

Background

    Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1505 and Treasury Decision 85-93, published 
in the Federal Register on May 29, 1985 (50 FR 21832), the interest 
rate paid on applicable overpayments or underpayments of customs duties 
must be in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code rate established 
under 26 U.S.C. 6621 and 6622. Section 6621 was amended (at paragraph 
(a)(1)(B) by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act 
of 1998, Public Law 105-206, 112 Stat. 685) to provide different 
interest rates applicable to overpayments: One for corporations and one 
for non-corporations.
    The interest rates are based on the Federal short-term rate and 
determined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Treasury on a quarterly basis. The rates effective for 
a quarter are determined during the first-month period of the previous 
quarter.
    In Revenue Ruling 2014-11, the IRS determined the rates of interest 
for the calendar quarter beginning April 1, 2014, and ending on June 
30, 2014. The interest rate paid to the Treasury for underpayments will 
be the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two percentage points (2%) for 
a total of three percent (3%) for both corporations and non-
corporations. For corporate overpayments, the rate is the Federal 
short-term rate (1%) plus one percentage point (1%) for a total of two 
percent (2%). For overpayments made by non-corporations, the rate is 
the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two percentage points (2%) for a 
total of three percent (3%). These interest rates are subject to change 
for the calendar quarter beginning July 1, 2014, and ending September 
30, 2014.
    For the convenience of the importing public and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection personnel the following list of IRS interest rates
