Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance IV. Finding of No Significant Impact I. CDBG–MIT Allocations I.A. Background The Further Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2018 (Division B, Subdivision 1 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115–123, approved February 9, 2018) (the ‘‘Appropriations Act’’), made available $28 billion in Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery (CDBG–DR) funds, and directed HUD to allocate not less than $12 billion for mitigation activities proportional to the amounts that CDBG– DR grantees received for qualifying disasters in 2015, 2016, and 2017. A Federal Register Notice published by the Department on August 30, 2019 (84 FR 45838), allocated $6.875 billion of CDBG–MIT funds to 14 state and local governments and described the grant requirements and procedures, including waivers and alternative requirements applicable to CDBG–MIT funds (‘‘the CDBG–MIT Notice’’). The CDBG–MIT Notice recognizes that CDBG–MIT funds are to be used for distinctly different purposes than CDBG–DR funds and that the level of funding and nature of programs and projects that are likely to be funded requires all CDBG–MIT grantees and their subrecipients to strengthen their program management capacity, financial management, and internal controls. Under the CDBG–MIT Notice, each grantee is required to strengthen its internal audit function, specify the criteria for subrecipient selection, increase subrecipient monitoring, and establish a process for promptly identifying and addressing conflicts under the grantee’s conflict of interest policy. The CDBG–MIT Notice also states the Department’s intent to establish special grant conditions for individual CDBG–MIT grants based upon the risks posed by the grantee, including risks related to the grantee’s capacity to carry out the specific programs and projects proposed in its action plan. These conditions are designed to provide additional assurances that mitigation programs are implemented in a manner to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse and that mitigation projects are effectively operated and maintained. The CDBG–MIT Notice acknowledges the governance and financial management challenges of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. For all CDBG–MIT grantees, the CDBG–MIT PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Notice references the Department’s expectation that grantees will take steps to set in place substantial governmental policies and organizational structure to enhance the impact of HUD-funded investments. For the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, this goal may be achieved through reforms in land ownership records and addressing the occurrence of informal housing, while enhancing the safety of the Commonwealth’s residents. The CDBG–MIT Notice also notes that it is imperative that all CDBG–MIT grantees collect and supply sufficient revenues for future operation and maintenance costs of programs and projects funded with this CDBG–MIT grant. Additionally, prior to 2017, the Department of Housing of Puerto Rico (PRDOH), who has been designated as the entity responsible for administering the CDBG–DR allocations in response to Hurricanes Irma and Maria, had not previously administered CDBG–DR funds. Because PRDOH does not have previous experience managing CDBG– DR funds, HUD has reviewed the Commonwealth’s Staffing Analysis Worksheet and determined that PRDOH must continue to secure staff and contractors to build its capacity and knowledge of federal requirements, including civil rights related program requirements. These considerations emerge as particular unmitigated risks for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, in light of the substantial amount of CDBG–MIT funding allocated under this notice and the general fiscal condition of the Commonwealth. Accordingly, to further reduce the specific potential risks associated with the above challenges, this notice builds upon the requirements of the CDBG– MIT Notice and establishes additional grant conditions to reduce risk and support the successful implementation of this CDBG–MIT allocation by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. These measures are designed to augment and support HUD’s continual technical assistance and monitoring efforts, undertaken in partnership with the grantee. This notice allocates $8.285 billion in CDBG–MIT funds to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for mitigation activities in accordance with the Appropriations Act and the CDBG–MIT Notice. The grantee receiving an allocation of funds under this notice is subject to the requirements of the CDBG–MIT Notice, including waivers and alternative requirements, and any additional requirements imposed by this or future Federal Register notices.
