Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 99 / Tuesday, May 22, 2018 / Notices by HUD, HUD is authorized to terminate, reduce, or limit the availability of the tribe/TDHE’s grant funds under this program. HUD may use its discretion to reallocate the grant funds resulting from such reduction or termination, to any other tribe/TDHE that is in compliance with program requirements and is not deemed to be a poor performer, and that still has a need to house Homeless Native veterans. Grant funds may be reallocated among tribe/TDHEs within the same ONAP region, or among tribes/TDHEs in different ONAP regions, based on administrative capacity, the utilization of previously awarded Tribal HUD– VASH assistance, and current geographic need as determined by the VA and HUD. To the extent that any provision of Title VI of NAHASDA or any implementing regulation at 24 CFR part 1000 conflicts with the appeal process described above including, but not limited to, the opportunity for an administrative hearing, the provisions of this Notice will apply. U. Nondiscrimination Requirements The Tribal HUD–VASH program is administered in accordance with applicable civil rights and fair housing laws and requirements. Tribes/TDHEs shall be subject to all nondiscrimination requirements that are applicable under NAHASDA and the IHBG regulations at 24 CFR part 1000 and in particular 24 CFR 1000.12 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 V. Electronic Submission Requirement For the demonstration program, HUD waived the requirement to submit applications for grant funding through www.grants.gov, as required in 24 CFR 5.1005. Considering the statutory deadline to publish the October 21, 2015 Notice and begin the process of awarding funding, and the limited amount of available funds under this program, HUD determined that allowing the submission of paper applications was less burdensome and allowed HUD to make awards in a timelier manner. Subject to the availability of appropriations, applicants for this program should submit applications in accordance with the requirements outlined in any future Federal Register or Public and Indian Housing (PIH) Notices issued by HUD.
