HUD Programs: Violence Against Women Act Conforming Amendments
Document Number: 2010-26914
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-27
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule follows a November 28, 2008, interim rule that conformed HUD's regulations to those provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), as enacted in January 2006, and subsequently amended in August 2006, that were determined to be self-implementing.

Such protections apply to families receiving rental assistance under HUD's public housing and tenant-based and project-based Section 8 programs. This rule adopts as final the regulations in the November 28, 2008, interim rule, along with certain clarifying changes made in response to public comment, and with some restructuring of the regulations to improve organization within the Code of Federal Regulations.

Notice of Availability: Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Program; Technical Correction
Document Number: 2010-27015
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-25
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On September 20, 2010, HUD posted on http://www.Grants.gov and http://www.hudhre.info its Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for HUD's FY2010 Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Program. Today's Federal Register publication announces that HUD has posted on http:// www.Grants.gov and http://www.hudhre.info a technical correction that corrects Appendix A of the NOFA. Appendix A of the NOFA, the ``List of Counties Defined as Rural for the FY2010 Selection Criteria,'' inadvertently omitted listing six counties. As provided in the FY2010 CoC NOFA, counties listed on Appendix A and otherwise meeting the criteria described in Section III.C.2.a.(5) of the NOFA, are eligible for consideration for the selection priority described in Section V.B.2 of the NOFA. In addition, HUD determined that five counties not meeting the definition of rural county used in the FY2010 CoC NOFA were inadvertently included on the list of rural counties in Appendix A. As a result, HUD has corrected Appendix A. The revised CoC NOFA along with the corrected Appendix A can be found and downloaded from http://www.grants.gov and http:// www.hudhre.info. This correction does not change the application deadline date which remains November 18, 2010.

Use of Public Housing Capital Funds for Financing Activities
Document Number: 2010-26404
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-21
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule implements a program to allow public housing agencies (PHAs) to use proceeds of their Capital Fund program for financing activities, including payment of debt service and housing development and modernization activities. A PHA may grant a security interest in future Capital Fund grants, subject to the appropriation of those funds by Congress. This final rule follows a July 18, 2007, proposed rule that addressed the use of public housing Capital Funds and Operating Funds for financing activities, and takes into consideration the public comments received on that rule. This final rule addresses only the use of public housing Capital Funds for financing activities. Given the public comment received on the proposed rule, HUD determined that further consideration must be given to HUD's proposal for use of operating funds for financing activities. The final rule makes changes to the proposed rule in response to public comments, including a streamlined approval process for standard and high-performing PHAs that have borrowings against their Capital Funds within certain limits, or that propose to use their Capital Fund financing proceeds in a mixed-finance development. The final rule, also in response to comment, provides greater specificity than the proposed rule with respect to submission requirements for requests for Capital Fund financing transactions.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Single Family Lender Insurance Process: Eligibility, Indemnification, and Termination
Document Number: 2010-25441
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-10-08
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Through this proposed rule, HUD continues its efforts to improve and expand the risk management activities of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The proposed regulatory changes will update and enhance the Lender Insurance process through which the majority of FHA-insured mortgages are endorsed for insurance. Most significantly, the proposed rule would provide additional guidance on HUD's regulations implementing the statutory requirements regarding mortgagee indemnification to HUD of insurance claims in the case of fraud, misrepresentation, or noncompliance with applicable loan origination requirements. The proposed rule also provides that mortgagees must continually maintain the acceptable claim and default rate required for eligibility to initially be delegated Lender Insurance authority, in order to retain such authority. In addition, this proposed rule also provides that HUD will review Lender Insurance mortgagee performance on a continual basis. HUD also proposes to revise the methodology for determining acceptable claim and default rates, to more accurately reflect mortgagee performance, and to streamline the approval process for Lender Insurance mortgagees that have undergone a corporate restructuring. The Department has also taken the opportunity afforded by this proposed rule to make two technical corrections to the regulations and to solicit public comment on whether FHA mortgagees should be required to submit mortgage loan case binders to HUD electronically.

Final Fair Market Rents for Fiscal Year 2011 for the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program
Document Number: 2010-24465
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-04
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Section 8(c)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (USHA) requires the Secretary to publish FMRs periodically, but not less than annually, adjusted to be effective on October 1 of each year. The primary uses of FMRs are to determine payment standards for the Housing Choice Voucher program, to determine initial renewal rents for some expiring project-based Section 8 contracts, to determine initial rents for housing assistance payment (HAP) contracts in the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program (Mod Rehab), and to serve as rent ceilings in the HOME program. Today's notice provides final FY 2011 FMRs for all areas that reflect the estimated 40th and 50th percentile rent levels trended to April 1, 2011. The FY 2011 FMRs are based on 2000 Census data updated with more current survey data. For FY 2011, FY 2010 FMRs are updated using 2008 American Community Survey (ACS) data, and Consumer Price Index (CPI) rent and utility indexes through the year end of 2009. HUD continues to use ACS data in different ways according to how many two-bedroom standard-quality and recent-mover sample cases are available in the FMR area or its Core- Based Statistical Area (CBSA). As proposed in the August 4, 2010, notice (75 FR 46958), this notice establishes FY 2011 Small Area FMRs for the Housing Choice Voucher program in the Dallas, TX HUD Metropolitan FMR Area (HMFA). All Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) operating in the 8-county HMFA must use the Small Area FMRs from Schedule B Addendum (listed by county and ZIP code) for the voucher program. All other programs that use FMRs will continue to use area- wide FMRs shown in Schedule B for Dallas, TX HMFA.
