Notice of HUD's Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) Policy Requirements and General Section to the FY2007 SuperNOFA for HUD's Discretionary Programs
Document Number: 07-131
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-18
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice provides prospective applicants for HUD competitive funding with the opportunity to become familiar with the General Section of HUD's FY2007 SuperNOFA, in advance of publication of the FY2007 SuperNOFA. HUD plans to publish its annual SuperNOFA early in 2007. Early publication of the General Section is one of several steps instituted to improve the funding process for the grantee community. Early publication of the General Section gives prospective applicants additional time to become familiar with and address provisions in the General Section, which constitute part of almost every individual program application. HUD will publish with the SuperNOFA any changes to this General Section made after today's publication. HUD will continue to require that applicants submit their applications electronically via Grants.gov. To submit an application via Grants.gov, new users will be required to complete a five-step registration process, which can take 2 to 4 weeks to complete. The process includes ensuring that information provided by your organization to Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) matches information previously provided by your organization and contained in Internal Revenue Service (IRS) records. If there is a discrepancy in the information, the registration cannot be completed until discrepancy issues are resolved. Applicants that are already registered have to update the information previously provided in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). During the update process, the CCR will check the D&B information against the IRS records for your organization. If there are discrepancies, the update cannot be completed until the discrepancies are resolved. Please allow adequate time to resolve any registration issues. To submit an application to HUD, the Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) must be able to make a legally binding agreement for the organizational entity. Please see detailed registration instructions in Section IV.B. of this notice. For FY2007, the Continuum of Care applications are the lone SuperNOFA paper applications that HUD will accept without first granting a waiver. Continuum of Care applicants should be aware that HUD intends to have the Continuum of Care applicants applying via Grants.gov no later than FY2008. Therefore, it is in the interest of Continuum of Care applicants to complete the Grants.gov registration process in anticipation of moving to electronic application submission in 2008. Continuum of Care agencies would benefit from becoming familiar with the Grants.gov filing requirements so that they do not limit their ability to apply for funding from federal sources. HUD recommends that all prospective applicants take the time to carefully read the Federal Register notice published on October 31, 2006, entitled ``Notice of Opportunity to Register Early and other Important Information for Electronic Application Submission via Grants.gov'' and register prior to the publication of the Program Sections of the FY2007 SuperNOFA. The early registration notice can be found on HUD's Web site at http://www.hud.gov/offices/[fxsp0]adm/grants/fundsavail.cfm.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Implementation of the Violence Against Women (VAWA) and Justice Department Reauthorization Act of 2005
Document Number: 07-53
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval, as required by the paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This is a request for information collection that will be used by PHAs and owners to request that an individual, in response to an incident or incidents of actual or threatened domestic violence, dating violence or stalking that may affect a tenant's participation in the housing program to request in writing that an individual complete, sign and submit within 14 business days of the request, a HUD-approved certification form. On the form, the individual certifies that he/she is a victim of domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, and that the incident or incidences in question are bona fide incidences of such actual or threatened abuse. On the certification form, the individual must provide the name of the perpetrator. PHAs are instructed that the delivery of the certification form to the tenant in response to incident via mail may place the victim at risk, e.g., the abuser may monitor the mail; consequently, PHAs, owners and managers may require that the tenant come into the office to pick up the certification form. PHAs and owners are also encouraged to work with tenants to make delivery arrangements that do not place the tenant at risk. If the individual does not provide the certification form or alternate documentation that may satisfy the certification requirements by the 14th business days or after any extension of that date provided by the PHA, owner or manager, none of the protections afforded to the victim of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking by sections 606 or 607 will apply. The PHA, owner or manager would therefore be free to evict, or terminate assistance, in the circumstances authorized by otherwise applicable law and lease provisions, without regard to the amendments made by section 606 and 607.

Community Development Block Grant Program; Small Cities Program; Proposed Rule
Document Number: E6-22502
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-01-03
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would amend HUD's regulations governing the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program for non-entitlement areas in the state of Hawaii. Pursuant to statutory authority, the state of Hawaii has elected not to administer funds to units of general local governments located in non-entitlement areas within the state. The statute provides that if Hawaii opts to not assume responsibility for the program, then the Secretary of HUD will make grants to the units of general local government located in Hawaii's non-entitlement areas, employing the same distribution formula as was used under prior regulations. This proposed rule would modify HUD's regulations to clarify how the CDBG program will be implemented in the non-entitlement areas of Hawaii. HUD has also taken the opportunity afforded by this proposed rule to update and streamline the subpart F regulations, particularly with regard to the HUD-administered Small Cities program in New York, which awarded its last competitive grant in Fiscal Year (FY) 1999.
