Download as PDF 62194 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 200 / Thursday, October 16, 2014 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES • For the third round of CDBG–DR funding for Sandy recovery, HUD includes four additional sources of information: 1. US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Infrastructure Resilience Coordination (extracted June 2013). Many USACE Sandy projects require very high local cost shares. However, Federal requirements only allow grantees to no more than $250,000 of CDBG– DR funding towards local match requirements for these projects. As such, this calculation only includes $250,000 per USACE project where local match is higher than that amount. 2. DOT, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Sandy Recovery Grants—Emergency Relief (ER) (extracted June 2013). We include an estimate of the local cost share from this program. To calculate this estimate, we only include 20% of non-quick release Sandy ER project estimates as of July 2013. 3. DOT, Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Transit Emergency Relief (ER) (extracted June 2013). We include the 10% local cost share for these transit projects. Note, since much of the New York City transit damage is owned by a state organization, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, New York State receives the vast majority of need from this grant. Also note that the State of New Jersey receives 66% of the local match requirement from the Port Authority’s match requirement; New York State receives 34% of the Authority’s match requirement. 4. USDA Emergency Watershed Repair Program (extracted May 2014). For most impacted disasters in 2011, 2012, and 2013 that have not received supplemental funding to address watershed repairs, HUD includes the estimated unmet repair costs calculated by USDA in the unmet repair needs calculation. Calculating Economic Revitalization (Small Business) Needs • Based on SBA disaster loans to businesses (extracted January 2014), HUD used the sum of real property and real content loss of small businesses not receiving an SBA disaster loan. This is adjusted upward by the proportion of applications that were received for a disaster that content and real property loss were not calculated because the applicant had inadequate credit or income. For example, if a state had 160 applications for assistance, 150 had calculated needs and 10 were denied in the pre-processing stage for not enough income or poor credit, the estimated unmet need calculation would be increased as (1 + 10/ 160) * calculated unmet real content loss. • Because applications denied for poor credit or income are the most likely measure of needs requiring the type of assistance available with CDBG–DR funds, the calculated unmet business needs for each state are adjusted upwards by the proportion of total applications that were denied at the pre-process stage because of poor credit or inability to show repayment ability. Similar to housing, estimated damage is used to determine what unmet needs will be counted as severe unmet needs. Only properties with total real estate and content loss in excess of $30,000 are considered severe damage for VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:19 Oct 15, 2014 Jkt 235001 purposes of identifying the most impacted and distressed areas. Æ Category 1: real estate + content loss = below $12,000 Æ Category 2: real estate + content loss = $12,000 to $30,000 Æ Category 3: real estate + content loss = $30,000 to $65,000 Æ Category 4: real estate + content loss = $65,000 to $150,000 Æ Category 5: real estate + content loss = above $150,000 To obtain unmet business needs, the amount for approved SBA loans is subtracted out of the total estimated damage. CDBG Disaster Recovery Funds are often used to not only support rebuilding to prestorm conditions, but also to build back much stronger. For the disasters covered by this Notice, HUD has required that grantees use their funds in a way that results in rebuilding back stronger so that future disasters do less damage and recovery can happen faster. To calculate these resiliency costs, HUD multiplied it estimates of total repair costs for seriously damaged homes, small businesses, and infrastructure by 30 percent. Total repair costs are the repair costs including costs covered by insurance, SBA, FEMA, and other federal agencies. The resiliency estimate at 30 percent of damage is intended to reflect some of the unmet needs associated with building to higher standards such as elevating homes, voluntary buyouts, hardening, and other costs in excess of normal repair costs. Note that because FEMA Public Assistance does not include the estimated cost to repair Public Housing that is covered by private insurance, HUD adds to its resiliency calculation 30 percent times the insurance payment for Public Housing repairs. Housing and Small Business Construction Cost Adjustment Prior to making this final allocation, HUD staff carefully reviewed the housing programs being operated by New York City and New Jersey. Out of this analysis came the observation that higher construction costs in New York and New Jersey were not being adequately accounted for in HUD’s base formula for determining relative share of funding among the 2011, 2012, and 2013 disasters. As a result, for this allocation, HUD has increased its estimate of severe unmet housing and business repair and resiliency needs to account for these higher construction costs. To do this, HUD used the same Marshall & Swift regional cost adjustment multipliers used for HUD’s annual calculation of Total Development Costs developed for HUD’s public housing repair programs. The specific construction cost multiplier used for adjusting the above calculations of unmet housing and business needs for each grantee was as follows: Connecticut: 1.19 Maryland: 1.00 New York State: 1.44 New York City: 1.45 New Jersey: 1.34 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 [FR Doc. 2014–24662 Filed 10–15–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4210–67–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Office of the Secretary Invasive Species Advisory Committee Office of the Secretary, Interior.
