Section 108 Community Development Loan Guarantee Program: Participation of States as Borrowers Pursuant to Section 222 of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009
Document Number: E9-17326
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-07-22
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This interim rule implements section 222 in Division I of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 111-8 (2009 Appropriations Act). Section 222 authorizes HUD, to the extent of Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 loan guarantee authority, to provide community development loan guarantees, under section 108 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (HCD Act), to states borrowing on behalf of local governments in nonentitlement areas (governments that do not receive annual Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) from HUD). Section 108 authorizes HUD to guarantee notes issued by such nonentitlement local governments or their designated public agencies supported by the respective state's pledge of its CDBG funds. Prior to the enactment of section 222, HUD lacked authority to guarantee notes issued by states on their behalf. State officials interested in applying for a loan guarantee commitment pursuant to this new authority should take note that HUD's authority to issue such commitments will expire on September 30, 2010 (and could be fully utilized by other borrowers before that date), unless the provision continues to be included in future appropriations acts. The interim rule, however, contains language that will make the provisions implementing this new authority continue to apply, in the event that provisions equivalent to section 222 are included in future appropriations acts. Because the provisions of section 222 expand, rather than replace, existing Section 108 authority, HUD will also continue to accept nonentitlement local government issuers' state-supported applications for loan guarantee commitments.

Date: 2009-07-22
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice announces changes in the interest rates to be paid on debentures issued with respect to a loan or mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration under the provisions of the National Housing Act (the Act). The interest rate for debentures issued under section 221(g)(4) of the Act during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2009, is 3\3/8\ percent. The interest rate for debentures issued under any other provision of the Act is the rate in effect on the date that the commitment to insure the loan or mortgage was issued, or the date that the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or initially endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for insurance, whichever rate is higher. The interest rate for debentures issued under these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or endorsed during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2009, is 4\1/8\ percent. However, as a result of an amendment to section 224 of the Act, if an insurance claim relating to a mortgage insured under sections 203 or 234 of the Act and endorsed for insurance after January 23, 2004, is paid in cash, the debenture interest rate for purposes of calculating a claim shall be the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years.
