Download as PDF 38732 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 114 / Tuesday, June 14, 2016 / Notices srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES of affordability set forth in HOME program standards at 24 CFR 92.252 (e) and 92.254(a)(4). ‘‘Finally, most program income will be received by CDBG entitlement cities and counties, and by states, which have systems and procedures to manage NSP revenues, which are treated in most respects like CDBG revenues. However, non-profit consortium members in NSP2 grant consortia that receive revenues generated by NSP projects will not have access to the state and municipal CDBG tracking systems. Further, the CDBG regulation and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circular implemented at 24 CFR 84.24(e) or 2 CFR 200.307(f), as applicable, do not require that non-profit grantees continue to treat revenues generated from use of NSP funds and received after grant closeout as federal funds unless HUD regulations or the terms and conditions of the award provide otherwise. Thus, for NSP2 grantees that are not direct formula CDBG grantees (non-profits and non-entitlement local governments, including those that are part of a consortium), HUD is requiring that revenues generated by projects funded before closeout but received within 5 years after grant closeout must be used for NSP-eligible activities and meet NSP benefit requirements, but no other federal requirements would apply. With the exception of income earned from the sale of NSP-assisted real property or loans, any income earned by such postcloseout use of funds would not be governed by any NSP requirements and would be miscellaneous revenues, although HUD encourages such grantees to apply NSP principles to subsequent uses of the funds.’’ 4. The paragraphs in section Z under the ‘‘Requirements’’ subheading are amended to read as follows: ‘‘Requirements ‘‘1. Program Income. Gross revenues received by NSP grantees after closeout will be governed by the following requirements: ‘‘a.i. After notifying HUD in writing and receiving prior written approval, the grantee may receipt the amounts to IDIS (after first revising any DRGR entries related to the funds) and add them to the grantee’s CDBG program income receipts and all relevant CDBG program income requirements shall then apply. HUD will approve a transfer unless the transfer would result in noncompliance with the requirement at 75 FR 64331, paragraph E.2.e based on the use of the NSP funds that would remain after transfer. ‘‘a.ii. If the amounts are not receipted in IDIS, annual amounts of program VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:36 Jun 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 income in excess of $25,000 shall be used in accordance with all NSP requirements for eligible NSP properties, uses, and activities, including new construction, financing mechanisms, and management and disposition of land bank property. ‘‘b. If annual NSP program income does not exceed $25,000, the funds shall be used for general administrative costs related to ensuring continued affordability of NSP units or added to the grantee’s CDBG program income receipts and the CDBG requirements at 24 CFR 570.500(a)(4) shall apply, which may exclude such amounts from the definition of program income. ‘‘c. NSP program income may provide benefit to individuals and families with incomes up to 120 percent of AMI as permitted in NSP under section II.E; ‘‘d. If a grantee’s annual NSP program income exceeds $250,000 (after any transfer of program income to CDBG), 25 percent of the program income shall be used to house individuals or families below 50 percent of AMI; in instances in which a grantee’s annual NSP program income does not exceed $250,000, the requirements of paragraph II.E.2.e do not apply. ‘‘e. NSP2 grantees that are not CDBG entitlement communities or States must use post-closeout revenues generated from NSP-assisted activities funded before closeout for NSP purposes. If the grantee does not have another ongoing grant received directly from HUD at the time of closeout, then in accordance with 24 CFR 570.504(b)(5), income received after closeout from the disposition of real property or from loans outstanding at the time of closeout shall not be governed by NSP or CDBG rules, except that such income shall be used for activities that meet one of the national objectives in 24 CFR 570.208 and the eligibility requirements described in section 105 of the HCD Act. The provisions of 24 CFR 570.504(b)(5) are waived to limit its application to income received within 5 years of grant closeout. Any income received 5 years after grant closeout, as well as program income from funds outlaid after the date of the closeout agreement may be used without restriction. Such grantees are encouraged to use such funds in accordance with the principles above. ‘‘f. States may continue to act directly to implement NSP activities postcloseout. ‘‘g. HUD will provide direction to grantees by the date of closeout on procedures for reporting and tracking NSP program income revenues. Tracking will continue in DRGR until IDIS enhancements to allow NSP PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 property registry and program income tracking are developed and released.’’ Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance numbers for grants made under NSP are as follows: 14.218; 14.225; and 14.228. Paperwork Reduction Act HUD has approval from OMB for information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). OMB approval is under OMB control number 2506–0165. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, HUD may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless the collection displays a valid control number. Environmental Review A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with respect to the environment has been made in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 50, which implement section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Yukon-Kuskokwim (YK) Delta Berry Outlook is a data and 
observer driven ecological monitoring and modeling framework that 
forecasts changes in berry habitat and abundance with climate and 
environmental change. In order to create a monitoring protocol and 
modeling framework we will solicit local knowledge of berry 
distribution and abundance from members of Yukon-Kuskokwim 
communities. Participants from the communities will take part in a 
survey that asks yes or no questions about the timing, abundance, 
and distribution of three types of berries that are important in 
their communities. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will be 
limited to four elements: Names, phone numbers, emails, and the name 
of the village they reside in. This PII will be collected in order 
to communicate project results and solicit feedback on the project 
itself for evaluation purposes. Statistical analysis will be 
performed on the survey responses in order to ascertain if a 
consensus exists among participants within villages and among 
villages. The survey results will be one source of information used 
to create a model forecasting changes in Tribal food sources.
    The USGS mission is to serve the Nation by providing reliable 
scientific information to describe and understand the Earth. This 
project will collect information from individuals to better 
understand the abundance, distribution, and variability of berry 
resources in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of Alaska. The people 
of the YK delta rely on wild berries for a substantial part of their 
diet and hold information about the long term distribution and 
abundance of berries that is useful for understanding current and 
future changes to berry habitat due to climate change impacts that 
will effect both human and wildlife populations of the Yukon Delta 
region and the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge.
