Download as PDF 54632 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 197 / Thursday, October 10, 2019 / Notices lesser of (a) the family’s TTP, less the Utility Allowance, or (b) any applicable maximum rent under LIHTC regulations. During any period when the family’s TTP falls below the gross rent, normal PBV rules shall apply. 6. Under-Occupied Unit. Provision affected: 24 CFR 983.260. Waiver: HUD is waiving this provision in order to allow the family to remain in the underoccupied unit until an appropriate-sized unit becomes available in the Covered Project. 7. Establishment of a Waiting List. Provision affected: 24 CFR 983.251(c)(2). Alternative Requirement: HUD is specifying an alternative requirement in order to ensure that applicants on the PHA’s community wide public housing waiting list have been offered placement on a Covered Project’s site-based PBV waiting list. In addition, this notice announces two other waivers and alternative requirements: 1. Jobs Plus. Provision affected: Jobs Plus provisions in the ‘‘Public Housing Capital Fund’’ of Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 (Pub. L. 113– 76) or future appropriations acts. Waiver and Alternative Requirement: HUD is waiving the provision in the appropriation acts for FY14 and future years that limits Jobs Plus funds to provide grants to help public housing residents obtain employment and increase earnings. This waiver is necessary for the continued administration of the Jobs Plus grant at a target project after conversion. Jobs Plus grantees awarded FY14 and future funds that convert the Jobs Plus target projects(s) under RAD will be able to finish out their Jobs Plus period of performance unless significant relocation and/or change in building occupancy is planned. However, Jobs Plus target public housing projects must enroll public housing residents into the Jobs Plus rent incentive, JPEID, prior to conversion. Any resident of the Covered Project that had not enrolled prior to conversion is not eligible to enroll in JPEID but may utilize Jobs Plus services that predominantly benefit the former public housing residents who resided at the target project at the time of RAD conversion. 2. Relocation requirements under Section 18 of the Act. Provision affected: Sections 18(a)(4) and 18(g) of the Act and 24 CFR 970.21. Waiver and Alternative Requirement: Where a PHA is combining the use of RAD and Section 18 at a project, HUD is waiving the relocation requirements governing Section 18 and applying the RAD relocation requirements to affected residents. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:50 Oct 09, 2019 Jkt 250001 V. Revised RAD Notice Availability The Revised RAD Notice (PIH–2019– 23 (HA)/H–2019–09, REV–4) can be found on RAD’s website, www.hud.gov/ RAD. VI. Impact on 2015 Davis-Bacon Notice On March 9, 2015 at 80 FR 12511 (the ‘‘March 9, 2015 Notice’’), HUD published a notice in the Federal Register with details on how the DavisBacon requirements interact with the PBV program. The notice particularly addressed the applicability of DavisBacon requirements to projects selected as ‘‘existing housing’’ 2 under the PBV program, including PBV existing housing under the second component of RAD (sometimes referred to as ‘‘RAD 2’’), which was covered in section II.C. HUD’s General Counsel issued a legal opinion on August 13, 2019 (the ‘‘2019 Opinion’’), concluding that Davis-Bacon requirements are not triggered by the rehabilitation of previously assisted units occurring in connection with a conversion of assistance under the second component of RAD. The 2019 Opinion superseded a 2014 opinion (the ‘‘2014 Opinion’’) from the Office of General Counsel regarding the applicability of Davis-Bacon wage rates to PBV existing housing under RAD 2. The 2019 Opinion noted that the 2014 Opinion did not give proper consideration to statutory text and was a departure from longstanding HUD interpretation and practice. The 2019 Opinion concluded that rehabilitation of already-assisted units and associated common areas that occur in connection with PBV and PBRA provided under RAD 2 does not constitute ‘‘development’’ of a new Section 8 project that would trigger the application of Davis-Bacon requirements under section 12(a) of the United States Housing Act of 1937. Instead, RAD 2 transactions in which the assisted units remain the same as those under the prior form of projectbased assistance constitute a mere extension of existing assistance. The 2019 Opinion also noted that to the extent that construction or rehabilitation is performed on nine or more units that will be newly assisted with PBVs or PBRA under RAD 2 (including through transfer of assistance), this work would constitute development of an expanded project that would trigger the application of Davis-Bacon to the same extent that it would apply to the nonRAD provision of PBVs or PBRA to projects that include units not assisted under a previous contract. Accordingly, 2 Existing PO 00000 housing is defined in 24 CFR 983.3. Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 section II.C. of the March 9, 2015 Notice is withdrawn. The guidance in the remainder of the March 9, 2015 Notice remains applicable to the rehabilitation of nine or more newly assisted existing units under RAD 2. VII. Environmental Review A Finding of No Significant Impact with respect to the environment has been completed in accordance with HUD regulations in 24 CFR part 50 that implement section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C)). The Finding is available for public inspection during regular business hours in the Regulations Division, Office of General Counsel; Department of Housing and Urban Development; 451 7th Street SW, Room 10276; Washington, DC 20410– 0500.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this Disclaimer of Interest is to remove a cloud on the title of a mineral interest of a parcel of land situated in Tarrant County, Texas. The BLM received an application for a Disclaimer of Interest from the heirs of Virginia C. Yeager and Opal Keating for the mineral estate of land lying near the U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers’ (Corps) Benbrook Lake in Tarrant County, Texas. This is a subsequent application from these applicants and pertains to a second mineral interest lying adjacent to the mineral estate that was the subject of the applicants’ initial Disclaimer of Interest. The mineral estate subject to the initial application is identified as Tract C–214 and a portion of Tract C– 215 located within the John T. Gilliland Survey (A–610) and the William Hunter Survey (A–734). The resulting Disclaimer of Interest disclaimed any interest the United States may have had in Tract C–214 and a portion of Tract C– 215. This Disclaimer of Interest, issued in 2016, was executed by the BLM based upon the opinions of the U.S. Attorney General, Corps, and the BLM acknowledging the minerals underlying the Hunter and Gilliland surveys were severed from the surface estate in 1922 via the mineral deed from J.W. Corn to Virginia C. Yeager and Opal Keating as recorded in Volume 745, Page 578, Tarrant County, Texas; and the mineral interest under the Hunter and Gilliland surveys was never acquired by the Corps. The pending second application from the heirs of Yeager and Keating addresses the mineral estate under the Hunter and Gilliland surveys within Corps Tract B–115. Tract B–115 is located within seven separate surveys and has multiple, complex chains of title for the various parcels making up Tract B–115. The applicants’ second application seeks a Disclaimer of Interest for the western portions of Tract B–115 that are within the Gilliland and Hunter surveys only. The applicants are E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1
