Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 54186 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 176 / Thursday, September 11, 2014 / Rules and Regulations J–94: J–94 extends between the Oakland, CA, VORTAC and the Boston, MA, VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The route segment from the Flint, MI, VORTAC to the London, ON, Canada, VOR/DME is removed. J–546: J–546 is removed. J–551: J–551 is removed. J–553: J–553 is removed. V–84: V–84 extends between the Northbrook, IL, VOR/DME and the Syracuse, NY, VORTAC, excluding the airspace within Canada. The route segment between the Flint, MI, VORTAC and the London, ON, Canada, VOR/DME is removed. V–216: V–216 extends between the Lamar, CO, VOR/DME and the Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The route segment between the Janesville, WI, VOR/DME and the Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/DME is removed. V–320: V–320 extends between the Pellston, MI, VORTAC and the Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/DME. The route segment between the Saginaw, MI, VOR/DME and the Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/DME is removed. The navigation aid radials cited in the jet route and VOR Federal airway descriptions are unchanged and stated relative to True north. Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 and VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a), respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes and VOR Federal airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Sep 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it modifies the route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the NAS.

From London, ON, Canada; Buffalo, NY; Albany, NY; to Boston, MA; excluding the airspace within Canada. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. * List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). * * * * * * * * * * * * J–551 [Removed] * * * J–553 [Removed] * * Paragraph 6010 Airways Domestic VOR Federal * * * * * V–84 [Amended] From Northbrook, IL; Pullman, MI; Lansing, MI; to Flint, MI.

SUMMARY: On June, 25, 2014, HUD published a document implementing 
statutory changes made by the Department of Housing and Urban 
Development Appropriations Act, 2014 to certain programs administered 
by HUD's Office of Housing and HUD's Office of Public and Indian 
Housing. In the discussion of implementation of the new definition of 
``extremely low-income'' applicable to multifamily projects 
administered by HUD's Office of Housing, the document referred to 
``contract administrators'' and it should have referenced ``owners.'' 
This document makes that correction.

DATES: Effective Date: September 11, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Claire Brolin, Office of Multifamily 
Housing Programs, Office of Housing, U.S. Department of Housing and 
Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Room 6106, Washington, DC 20410

or speech impairments may access either of these numbers through TTY by

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of June 25, 2014, in 
FR Doc. 2014-14915, beginning on page 39540, the following corrections 
are made:
    1. On page 35942, in the first column, correct the second paragraph 
under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    Beginning with the effective date of this notice, a PHA or owner 
shall meet its targeting requirements through a combination of ELI 
admissions prior to the effective date (using the prior definition) and 
ELI admissions after the effective date (using the new statutory 
definition). Neither a PHA nor an owner may skip over a family on the 
waiting list if that family meets the new definition of ELI as enacted 
by this section.
    2. On page 35942, in the first column, correct the fifth paragraph 
under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    For the multifamily project-based section 8 programs, the owner 
must make available for occupancy by ELI families not less than 40 
percent of the section 8-assisted dwelling units that become available 
for occupancy in any fiscal year.
    1. On page 35942, in the second column, correct the seventh 
paragraph under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    In some communities, the extremely low-income and very low-income 
levels will be identical for some or all household sizes, in which case 
PHAs or owners meet their ELI targeting requirements by serving VLI 
households, since those families meet the new definition of ELI. To 
reduce the work a PHA or owner must do to determine which standard it 
should be using, HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research has 
calculated the new income limits for extremely low-income families, 
taking the previous sentence into account, and has made the new area 
income limits available online at http://www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/il/il14/index.html.
