Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
Document Number: E7-24908
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-12-27
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Following publication of a March 23, 2007, proposed rule, this final rule relocates HUD's regulations governing nonprocurement debarment and suspension to a new part in title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The relocation is part of a governmentwide initiative to create one location where the public can access both the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance for grants and agreements and the associated Federal agency implementing regulations. The new part adopts the OMB guidance on nonprocurement debarment and suspension and supplements it with HUD-specific clarifications and additions. The rule also makes conforming changes to HUD regulations referencing the nonprocurement debarment and suspension regulations. This regulatory action is an administrative simplification that would make no substantive change in HUD policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. This final rule takes into consideration the one public comment received on the March 23, 2007, proposed rule. To conform the rule to reflect the establishment of HUD's Office of Hearings and Appeals and more closely track the language of the OMB guidelines, this final rule adopts the proposed rule with minor changes.

Conformity Determination for the East River Waterfront Esplanade and Piers Project City of New York, New York County, NY
Document Number: E7-23832
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-12-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
In accordance with the federal Clean Air Act General Conformity rule, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) has prepared a general conformity determination (Conformity Determination) for the East River Waterfront Esplanade and Piers Project (the Selected Project) pursuant to the October 2007 National Environmental Policy Act Record of Decision and Lead Agency Findings Statement (ROD). LMDC is a subsidiary of the Empire State Development Corporation (a political subdivision and public benefit corporation of the State of New York) and is responsible, pursuant to federal statute 42 U.S.C. 5304(g) as the recipient of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant program funds, for conducting reviews of projects receiving HUD funds in accordance with 24 CFR part 58, as well as other laws and regulations. These responsibilities include compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq. (particularly sections 7506(c) and (d)), in accordance with 24 CFR 58.4 and 58.5. The Selected Project will improve a two mile portion of the East River waterfront in Manhattan and create a City-owned public open space. The area of the Selected Project will generally encompass the waterfront, the upland area adjacent to and under the elevated FDR Drive and South Street extending from the Whitehall Ferry Terminal and Peter Minuit Plaza on the South to East River Park on the North, as well as Pier 15, the New Market Building pier, Pier 35, Pier 36, and Pier 42. The Selected Project is fully described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the East River Waterfront Esplanade and Piers Project. The Selected Project is located in Manhattan, New York County, which has been designated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a moderate non-attainment area for particulate matter less than 10 micrometers in aerodynamic diameter (PM10), a non-attainment area for particulate matter less than 2.5 micrometers in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5), and a moderate non-attainment area for the 8-hour ozone standard. New York County was previously designated by the EPA as a severe non-attainment area for the 1-hour ozone standard. The area is in attainment for all other criteria pollutants: Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), lead, sulfur dioxide (SO2), and carbon monoxide (CO). MDC's review has been conducted consistent with the requirements of 40 CFR Part 93, Subpart B: ``Determining Conformity of Federal Actions to State or Federal Implementation Plans'' issued on November 30, 1993 (as amended on July 17, 2006, to address PM2.5 emissions). LMDC has determined that, during the peak construction year of 2008, potential emissions for all the criteria pollutants would be below the de minimis thresholds established under federal regulations at 40 CFR 93.153(b) which are currently applicable in New York County. Nonetheless, the construction emissions could exceed the 25 tons per year (tpy) annual nitrogen oxides (NOX) threshold for severe ozone non- attainment areas, which was applicable to New York County under the previous 1-hour ozone standard designation. Accordingly, LMDC has prepared its Conformity Determination to demonstrate that the federally-funded portion of the Selected Project will conform with the 1-hour ozone State Implementation Plan (SIP). Pursuant to the requirements of 40 CFR 93.153(h)(4), this notice lists the activities that are presumed to conform to the New York ozone SIP. The Draft Conformity Determination for the Proposed East River Waterfront Esplanade and Piers Project was made available for public review beginning May 18, 2007. Notices of its availability were published in the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Environmental Notice Bulletin and newspapers of general circulation on May 30, 2007. The Draft Conformity Determination was also published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2007. No comments on the Draft Conformity Determination were received.

Based on statutory changes and HUD's technical operational experience in administering the program, this final rule implements a number of changes to the Mark-to-Market (M2M) program, HUD's mortgage restructuring program for FHA-insured projects with project-based Section 8 assistance, to facilitate processing. Unlike the M2M proposed and final rules addressing renewal of expiring Section 8 project-based assistance contracts that HUD published on January 12, 2006, this rule addresses a range of administrative and programmatic issues other than the project-based assistance contracts.
