The four OUP programs are: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU); Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities (HSIAC); Alaskan Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communities (ANNHIAC); and Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP). These programs were designed to encourage and expand the growing number of partnerships formed between colleges and universities and their communities. Program grants are used to fund community development activities in disadvantaged communities and to encourage minority- serving colleges and universities to contribute their technical expertise, organizational capacity, and resources to local community development efforts. There has been no prior evaluation of the outcomes or impacts of activities funded through OUP grants, which have an average annual value of $25 million. Therefore, this evaluation will be the first to systematically document program outcomes and to explore how factors such as partnership structure or the types of activities completed with grant funds affect outcomes for OUP grants. In addition, the study will help the Office of University Partnerships better understand the challenges that grantees face in implementing grant-funded activities. The results of the evaluation will assist the Department in designing grant programs in the future. This request is for data collection through a web survey and telephone interviews with 67 OUP grant recipients. The web survey instrument and telephone interview protocol are provided in Appendices 5 and 6, respectively. Together, the web survey and telephone interviews will be used to collect in-depth information about the activities funded with OUP grants. The web survey will be used to develop a comprehensive list of activities undertaken by grantees, and to document the partners and additional funding used to support OUP-funded activities. The telephone interviews will focus on two non-trivial activities per grantee (an activity will be considered non-trivial if more than 20 percent of grant funds from a given OUP grant were dedicated to it). The evaluation team will use the telephone interviews to collect more detailed information on the goals, accomplishments, and beneficiaries of the activities, as well as the partnership structures used to implement funded activities.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Appraiser Roster: Appraiser Qualifications for Placement on the FHA Appraiser Roster
Document Number: 2011-17498
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-14
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule updates HUD's regulations to conform to the statutory requirement that appraisers must be certified, rather than licensed, by a state appraisal licensing board in order to appear on the FHA Appraiser Roster. This requirement was established by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. Although current HUD practice is in compliance with the statutory mandate, the regulations reflect outdated prior policy of permitting state-licensed appraisers to be listed on the FHA Appraiser Roster. In addition, HUD has taken this opportunity to update the FHA Appraiser Roster by replacing the obsolete references to the Credit Alert Interactive Voice Response System with references to its successor, the online-based Credit Alert Verification Reporting System.
