Emergency Capital Repair Grants for Multifamily Housing Projects Designated for Occupancy by the Elderly; Revised Eligibility Requirements
On May 22, 2006, HUD published a notice entitled, ``Emergency Capital Repair Grants for Multifamily Housing Projects Designated for Occupancy by the Elderly,'' which announced the availability of approximately $30 million in grant funds to make emergency capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects designated for occupancy by elderly tenants. The notice published in today's Federal Register revises the May 22, 2006 notice to expand the eligibility requirements to include those eligible projects located in presidentially declared disaster areas regardless of when final closing occurred. Those projects not located in presidentially declared disaster areas must have had final closing on or before January 1, 1999.
