[Docket No. FR-4936-N-03]


Notice of Regulatory Waiver Requests Granted for the Third 
Quarter of Calendar Year 2004

AGENCY: Office of the General Counsel, HUD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 106 of the Department of Housing and Urban Development 
Reform Act of 1989 (the HUD Reform Act) requires HUD to publish 
quarterly Federal Register notices of all regulatory waivers that HUD 
has approved. Each notice covers the quarterly period since the 
previous Federal Register notice. The purpose of this notice is to 
comply with the requirements of section 106 of the HUD Reform Act. This 
notice contains a list of regulatory waivers granted by HUD during the 
period beginning on July 1, 2004, and ending on September 30, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general information about this 
notice, contact Aaron Santa Anna, Assistant General Counsel for 
Regulations, Room 10276, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 
451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-0500, telephone (202) 
708-3055 (this is not a toll-free number). Persons with hearing-or 
speech-impairments may access this number through TTY by calling the 
toll-free Federal Information Relay Service at 800-877-8339.
    For information concerning a particular waiver that was granted and 
for which public notice is provided in this document, contact the 
person whose name and address follow the description of the waiver 
granted in the accompanying list of waivers that have been granted in 
the third quarter of calendar year 2004.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act added a 
new section 7(q) to the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act 
(42 U.S.C. 3535(q)), which provides that:
    1. Any waiver of a regulation must be in writing and must specify 
the grounds for approving the waiver;
    2. Authority to approve a waiver of a regulation may be delegated 
by the Secretary only to an individual of Assistant Secretary or 
equivalent rank, and the person to whom authority to waive is delegated 
must also have authority to issue the particular regulation to be 
waived;
    3. Not less than quarterly, the Secretary must notify the public of 
all waivers of regulations that HUD has approved, by publishing a 
notice in the Federal Register. These notices (each covering the period 
since the most recent previous notification) shall:
    a. Identify the project, activity, or undertaking involved;
    b. Describe the nature of the provision waived and the designation 
of the provision;
    c. Indicate the name and title of the person who granted the waiver 
request;
    d. Describe briefly the grounds for approval of the request; and
    e. State how additional information about a particular waiver may 
be obtained.
    Section 106 of the HUD Reform Act also contains requirements 
applicable to waivers of HUD handbook provisions that are not relevant 
to the purpose of this notice.
    This notice follows procedures provided in HUD's Statement of 
Policy on Waiver of Regulations and Directives issued on April 22, 1991 
(56 FR 16337). This notice covers waivers of regulations granted by HUD 
from July 1, 2004, through September 30, 2004. For ease of reference, 
the waivers granted by HUD are listed by HUD program office (for 
example, the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office 
of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, the Office of Housing, and the 
Office of Public and Indian Housing, etc.). Within each program office 
grouping, the waivers are listed sequentially by the regulatory section 
of title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) that is being 
waived. For example, a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 58 would be 
listed before a waiver of a provision in 24 CFR part 570.
    Where more than one regulatory provision is involved in the grant 
of a particular waiver request, the action is listed under the section 
number of the first regulatory requirement that appears in 24 CFR and 
that is being waived. For example, a waiver of both Sec.  58.73 and 
Sec.  58.74 would appear sequentially in the listing under Sec.  58.73.
    Waiver of regulations that involve the same initial regulatory 
citation are in time sequence beginning with the earliest-dated 
regulatory waiver.
    Should HUD receive additional information about waivers granted 
during the period covered by this report (the third quarter of calendar 
year 2004) before the next report is published, HUD will include any 
additional waivers granted for the third quarter as well as those that 
occur during the fourth quarter of calendar year 2004 (October 1, 2004 
through December 31, 2004).
    Accordingly, information about approved waiver requests pertaining 
to HUD regulations is provided in the Appendix that follows this 
notice.

    Dated: December 28, 2004.
Kathleen D. Koch,
Deputy General Counsel.

Appendix--Listing of Waivers of Regulatory Requirements Granted by 
Offices of the Department of Housing and Urban Development July 1, 
2004, Through September 30, 2004

    Note to Reader: More information about the granting of these 
waivers, including a copy of the waiver request and approval, may be 
obtained by contacting the person whose name is listed as the 
contact person directly after each set of regulatory waivers 
granted.

    The regulatory waivers granted appear in the following order:

I. Regulatory waivers granted by the Office of Community Planning 
and Development
II. Regulatory waivers granted by the Office of Housing
III. Regulatory waivers granted by the Office of Public and Indian 
Housing

I. Regulatory Waivers Granted by the Office of Community Planning and 
Development

    For further information about the following regulatory waivers, 
please see the name of the contact person that immediately follows the 
description of the waiver granted.
     Regulation: 24 CFR 51.202 and 24 CFR 51.205.
    Project/Activity: Tellurian UCAN, Inc. of Madison, Wisconsin, 
proposed to expand an existing mixed-use residential and office 
building. The existing building is a two-story brick structure with 
office space on the first floor and seven single room occupancy (SRO) 
units on the second floor.
    Nature of Requirements: The proposed site is located approximately 
450 feet from a 30,000-gallon, above ground liquid petroleum gas (LPG) 
storage tank used for fueling taxi fleet. HUD's Environmental Review 
regulations in 24 CFR part 51 indicates that acceptable separation 
distance (ASD) for a project in proximity to a 30,000 gallon LPG tank 
is 660 feet. Tellurian engaged the engineering services of a consulting 
firm to evaluate and recommend mitigation measures that would provide 
adequate blast protection for a building proposed within 450 feet of 
the 30,000 gallon LPG tank. The firm concluded that the required 0.5 
psi value could be safely reduced to 0.14 psi by utilizing a brick 
veneer and concrete masonry unit (CMU) backup on the front of the 
proposed building.
    Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Deputy Secretary.

[[Page 2219]]

    Date Granted: September 28, 2004.
    Reasons Waived: Section 51.202 of HUD's regulations provides that 
``the Department will not approve an application for assistance for a 
proposed project located at less than the acceptable separation 
distance from a hazard unless appropriate mitigating measures, as 
defined in Sec.  51.205.'' The waiver of this regulation was granted on 
the basis of the engineering recommendations of the firm for blast over 
pressure, by having the existing LPG tank constructed to meet the 
requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 58-Gas 
Code Handbook) and the State of Wisconsin LPG Code, and by observing 
that the LPG tank is not in direct line of sight to the proposed 
structure.

Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban 
Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410-7000, 
telephone (202) 708-2565.
     Regulations: 24 CFR 92.503(b), 24 CFR 92.252 and 24 CFR 
92.254.
    Project/Activity: The State of Oklahoma requested that HUD grant 
waivers requiring repayment of HOME funds in the event a property does 
not meet the HOME affordability requirements for the period specified.
    Nature of Requirements: The Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) 
proposed to impose HOME requirements on a non-assisted unit for the 
remaining affordability period of the property that is out of 
compliance with the HOME final rule. Because the period of 
affordability established in 24 CFR 92.254 has not been met, OHFA would 
be required to repay the initial HOME investment amount to the HOME 
account from which it was drawn, pursuant to 24 CFR 92.503(b).
    Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Deputy Secretary.
    Date Granted: July 7, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency requested to 
substitute the HOME assisted unit lost through the fire with the new 
unit of 1828 South 5th Street. According to the information provided by 
OHFA, the proposed substitute unit is an eligible property type as 
described in 92.254(a)(1), met the modest housing requirements at Sec.  
92.254(a)(2)(i), will be the principal residence as required by Sec.  
92.254(a)(3) and will meet the property standards required by Sec.  
92.251(a)(2). The new unit will also be required to remain affordable 
for the balance of the original five-year period of affordability per 
Sec.  92.245(a)(4).
    Contact: Lisa Newman, Office of Field Management, Office of 
Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban 
Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW, Washington, DC 20410-7000, 
telephone (202) 708-2565.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 92.503(b), 24 CFR 92.254, 24 CFR 
92.503(b)(1), and 24 CFR 92.252
    Project/Activity: The State of Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) 
requested waiver of the HOME Program of repayment requirement for 
foreclosed properties established at 24 CFR 92.503(b)(1).
    Nature of Requirements: The Kentucky Housing Corporation follows 
the HOME policy guidance provided by the June 2003 HOMEfires regarding 
the repayment requirements for foreclosed HOME-assisted homebuyer 
properties that have not met the affordability requirements specified 
in Sec.  92.254 of the HOME rule. June 2003 HOMEfires explains, if a 
participating jurisdiction was unaware that the design of its homebuyer 
program obligated it, in the event of foreclosure, to repay funds in 
excess of what would be available through the foreclosure, and the 
participating jurisdiction has since changed its program design to base 
recapture amounts on net proceeds, a waiver of the repayment 
requirement under original program design is possible.
    Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Deputy Secretary.
    Date Granted: July 7, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The Kentucky Housing Corporation changed its 
recapture provisions for its homebuyer program. Permitting substitution 
of comparable units in lieu of repayment when a project fails to meet 
HOME requirements for the affordability period will maintain the number 
of affordable housing units available in the community. The proposed 
unit was determined an acceptable substitution for the HOME unit lost 
through the fire and subsequent sale of the original HOME-assisted 
unit. The unit is not a federally assisted unit, but will meet the HOME 
requirements for the balance of the period of affordability. The 
proposal will transfer the HOME restrictions from the original HOME-
assisted unit to the substitute unit, fulfilling the original HOME 
requirements.
    Contact: Lisa Newman, Office of Field Management, Office of 
Community Planning and Development, Department of Housing and Urban 
Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW, Washington, DC 20410-7000, 
telephone (202) 708-2565.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 570.208(a)(3) and 24 CFR 570.5.
    Project/Activity: The City of Asheville, North Carolina, has 
requested the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to 
acquire and improve a seven-acre site on Brotherton Avenue for the 
construction of 32 units of co-housing as a mixed community.
    Nature of Requirements: The regulations at 24 CFR 570.208(a)(3) 
require 51 percent of the units in a multi-unit structure must be 
occupied by low- and moderate-income households. Based on the proposed 
design, three units in each four-plex building and four units in each 
six-plex building, for a total of 22 of the 32 units, must be occupied 
by low- and moderate-income households. The regulations allow some 
flexibility for meeting this national objective when the CDBG 
assistance supports the new construction of non-elderly rental units 
and housing units for which funds are obligated during a program year 
in a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area.
    Granted By: Roy A. Bernardi, Deputy Secretary.
    Date Granted: July 6, 2004.
    Reason Waived: This waiver allowed the city to aggregate the units 
in the development, and this, in turn, will allow 56 percent of the 
units to be occupied by low- and moderate-income households. Further 
approval of the waiver resulted in the development of new affordable 
housing and increase homeownership for low- and moderate households.

cooperation with the process in a timely manner.
    Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 22, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The projects listed above were FHA insured and 
incentives were necessary to encourage cooperation.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 290.30(a).
    Project/Activity: 658 Montgomery Street, Project Number: 012-35199.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 290.30(a) requires that HUD-held 
multifamily mortgages be sold on a competitive basis, except for 
certain ``negotiated'' sales to state or local governments.
    Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: July 30, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The project owner requested prepayment of the 
mortgage. However, in lieu of paying off the mortgage directly, the 
borrower requested that the HUD loan secured by the project be assigned 
to Washington Mutual Bank for mortgage tax savings purposes. Washington 
Mutual Bank agreed to this assignment and to pay the full amount of the 
HUD loan.

    Nature of Requirement: Section 290.30(a) requires that HUD-held 
multifamily mortgages be sold on a competitive basis, except for 
certain ``negotiated'' sales to state or local governments.
    Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 13, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The project owner requested prepayment of the 
mortgage. However, in lieu of HUD entering into a non-competitive loan 
sale arrangement, the non-profit sponsor requested a negotiated sale 
for a price equal to the outstanding mortgage balance. The negotiated 
sale was determined more beneficial to the community than a competitive 
note sale to the highest bidder because the sponsor's purchase of the 
note ensures a local, continuing involvement in this facility.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 291.210(a).
    Project/Activity: Single Family Property Disposition.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 291.210(a) permits direct sales 
without mortgage insurance to governmental entities and private 
nonprofit organizations at deep discounts off the list price of 
properties sold for use in HUD and local housing or homeless programs. 
Section 291.210(c) permits HUD to dispose of HUD-owned single family 
properties through direct sales to other individuals or entities that 
do not meet any of the categories specified in this section, if a 
finding is made by the Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing 
Commissioner, or his or her designee, in writing, that such sales would 
further the goals of the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) 
and would be in the best interest of the Secretary.
    Granted by: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: September 29, 2004.
    Reason Waived: A waiver of the requirements of 24 CFR 291.210 (a) 
was needed in order to provide authority for governmental entities, 
school districts and private nonprofit organizations to purchase 
properties offered with mortgage insurance on a direct sales basis and 
to provide discounts of 50 percent for use in the Teacher Next Door 
Initiative. Based on HUD's experience with REO sales, it would not be 
detrimental to the insurance fund to permit governmental entities, 
school districts, and private nonprofit organizations to purchase 
properties offered with mortgage insurance on a direct sales basis or 
to provide discounts of 50 percent on properties sold for use in the 
Teacher Next Door Initiative. These sales will be upon such terms and 
conditions as the Secretary may prescribe. This finding applies to the 
direct sale of HUD-owned properties to teachers in designated 
revitalization areas. The Teacher Next Door Initiative gives teachers 
the opportunity to live and work in communities where they are most 
needed. The integration of teachers, who are role models and mentors, 
into a community enhances the community's quality of life. To date, the 
program has enabled the Department to dispose of 3,700 properties from 
its inventory, while providing homeownership to an equivalent number of 
qualified buyers and supporting residency of employed,

     Regulation: 24 CFR 401.461.
    Project/Activity: The following projects requested waivers to the 
simple interest requirement on the second mortgage to allow compound 
interest at the applicable federal rate.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
07235081...........................  Bissel Apartments.  IL
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Nature of Requirement: Section 401.461 requires that the second 
mortgages have an interest rate not more than the applicable federal 
rate. Section 401.461 (b)(1) states that interest will accrue but not 
compound. The intent of simple interest instead of compound interest is 
to limit the size of the second mortgage accruals to increase the 
likelihood of long-term financial and physical integrity.
    Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-
Federal Housing Commissioner.
    Date Granted: August 17,2004.
    Reason Waived: This regulatory restriction would be construed as a 
form of federal subsidy, thereby creating a loss of tax credit equity. 
This loss would adversely affect the ability to close the Restructuring 
Plan and could cause the loss or deterioration of these affordable 
housing projects. Therefore, compound interest was necessary for the 
owner to obtain Low Income Housing Tax Credits under favorable terms 
and in order to maximize the savings to the Federal Government.

restructuring process.
    Granted By: John C. Weicher, Assistant Secretary for Housing-

    Reason Waived: The projects listed above were not assigned to the 
participating administrative entities (PAEs) in a timely manner and 
therefore the restructuring analysis was unavoidably delayed due to no 
fault of the owner.

    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 7, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The PHA received less than $300,000 in federal 
funds. Therefore, the PHA was not required to

[[Page 2236]]

submit an audit. However, the PHA did not submit its unaudited

    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian

2004, to complete and submit the audited financial information.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 941.606(n)(1)(ii)(B).
    Project/Activity: Metropolitan Gardens, Phase II HOPE VI Project 
AL09URD001I197, Birmingham, AL.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 941.606(n)(1)(ii)(B) requires that 
if the partner and/or owner entity (or any other entity with an 
identity of interest with such parties) wants to serve as a general 
contractor for the project or development, it may award itself the 
construction contract only if it can demonstrate to HUD's satisfaction 
that its bid is the lowest submitted in response to a public request 
for bids.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing
    Date Granted: August 9, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The Housing Authority of the Birmingham District 
(HABD) requested the waiver to use Integral/Doster Metropolitan Gardens 
Company Incorporated, a joint venture of the Integral Building Group, 
LLC and Doster Construction Partnership, Inc., as the General 
Contractor for Phase II. The HABD procured Metropolitan Gardens 
Developer, LLC, comprised of the Integral Properties, LLC and Sloss 
Real Estate Group, Inc., as the Master Developer for the revitalization 
of Metropolitan Gardens. The Integral Building Group is an affiliate of 
Integral Properties, LLC. Integral/Doster Metropolitan Gardens 
Construction LLC did not bid to become the general contractor, as 
specified in the provision of the mixed financed regulation, but HABD 
provided a demonstration that the construction costs were reasonable 
and are within HUD requirements. The HABD submitted a third party cost 
estimate of $14,156,885. The construction cost provided by Integral/
Doster was $14,086,530, and was $70,355 lower than the third party 
estimate. As the construction contract is less than or equal to the 
independent cost estimate, the Department granted the waiver.

    Granted By: Michael M. Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and 
Indian Housing.
    Date Granted: September 23, 2004.
    Reason Granted: The housing authority sought additional time for

residents who had started their own businesses.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 983.3(a)(2).
    Project/Activity: Clay County Housing and Redevelopment Authority

vouchers to a combined 38-unit project (an 8-unit of supportive housing 
project and a 30-unit town house project) along with the Moorhead 
Public Housing Agency.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.3(a)(2) requires that the number 
of units to be project-based must not be under a tenant-based or 
project based housing assistance payments (HAP) contract or otherwise 
committed, e.g., vouchers issued to families searching for housing or 
units under an agreement to enter into a HAP contract (AHAP).
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 1, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The regulation was waived because it was confirmed 
through the CCHRA's submission of its most recent Voucher Management 
System report and self-reported leasing data for May and June 2004 that 
unit-months leased were declining. Additionally, the Public Housing

[[Page 2237]]

Information Center (PIC) data verified adequate turnover to support the

     Regulation: 24 CFR 983.203(a)(3).
    Project/Activity: Indianapolis Housing Authority (IHA), 
Indianapolis, IN. The IHA requested a waiver so that it could maintain 
separate waiting lists for each of its project-based voucher (PBV) 
projects.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.203(a)(3) requires that a public 
housing agency (PHA) may use the tenant-based waiting list, a merged 
waiting list, or a separate PBV waiting list for admission to the PBV 
program. If a PHA opts to have a separate PBV waiting list, it may use 
a single waiting list for all PBV projects or may use a separate PBV 
waiting list for an area not smaller than a county or municipality.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 21, 2004.
    Reason Waived: The waiver was granted because section 8(o)(13)(J) 
of the United States Housing Act of 1937 allows, subject to a PHA's 
waiting list policies and selection preferences, the maintenance of 
separate waiting lists for PBV structures as long as all families on 
the PHA's waiting list for PBV assistance can place its name on any of 
the separate PBV waiting lists. The request was consistent with the 
statute.

    Project/Activity: Detroit Housing Commission (DHC), Detroit, MI. 
The DHC requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner proposals 
and deconcentration requirements to permit it to attach PBA to 50 units 
at Woodbridge Estates.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II 
subpart E of the Initial Guidance requires that in order to meet the 
Department's goal of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic 
opportunities, the projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates 
of less than 20 percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 6, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection was granted 
for this project since the project underwent a competitive process and 
was awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits through the Michigan State 
Housing Development Authority. An exception to the deconcentration 
requirements was granted since Woodbridge Estates will be located on 
the former site of Jeffries Homes that had 2,170 public housing units 
of which 1,873 were demolished. The redeveloped site, which will 
include Woodbridge Estates, will have 767 units of mixed-income 
housing. Another 142 units will be developed in areas adjacent to the 
site. Of the redevelopment units, approximately 30 percent will be 
market rate and 70 percent will be for low-income families. A 
commercial component is planned for the site that will include up to 
40,000 square feet of retail space for small commercial businesses. The 
significant decrease in the number of assisted units at this HOPE VI 
site and planned on-site commercial development are consistent with the 
goal of deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic 
opportunities.

    Project/Activity: Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), Chicago, IL. The 
CHA requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner proposals and 
deconcentration requirements to permit it to attach PBA to 16 units at 
Liberty Square.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II 
subpart E of the Initial Guidance requires that in order to meet the 
Department's goal of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic 
opportunities, the projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates 
of less than 20 percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 14, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection was granted 
for this project since it underwent a competitive process for Low 
Income Housing Tax Credits through the Illinois State Housing 
Development Authority and Tax Increment Financing through the City of 
Chicago's Department of Housing and the Chicago City Council. An 
exception to the deconcentration requirements was granted since all of 
the sites of Liberty Square are within one block of the HUD-designated 
Empowerment Zone and should derive its benefits. The purpose of 
establishing empowerment zones is to open new businesses, and create 
jobs, housing, and new educational and healthcare opportunities for 
thousands of Americans. Just south of the Liberty Square sites, a newly 
constructed shopping center with a major supermarket and ten-screen 
Cineplex movie theatre has been developed. The drop in the poverty rate 
of East Garfield Park between 1990 and 2000 and the goals of an 
Empowerment Zone are consistent with the goal of deconcentrating 
poverty and expanding housing and economic opportunities.

    Project/Activity: Warwick Housing Authority (WHA), Warwick, RI. The 
WHA requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner proposals 
under the project-based program for the Newport Heights project. The 
WHA also requested an exception to the initial

[[Page 2238]]

guidance for the Newport Heights project that is located in a census 
tract with a poverty rate greater than 20 percent.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a PHA's HUD-approved 
advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II subpart E of the 
Initial Guidance requires that in order to meet the Department's goal 
of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic opportunities, 
the projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 
20 percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 21, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection and related 
requirements was granted for this project since the developer/partner 
of the project was competitively selected for two previous federal 
programs. Approval of the exception for deconcentration was granted 
since the area of the city where the units would be located has been 
targeted for revitalization and will be a mixed income, privately 
managed community. The units are part of a 329-unit HOPE VI site and 70 
of the 329 units will be market rate units that are targeted to 
households earning above 80 percent of area median income. The 
revitalization plan for the neighborhood in which the units will be 
located includes the construction of a college and day care center. 
Additionally, a 14-acre mall has been developed near the Newport 
Heights site, which has created 400 new jobs available to area 
residents.

    Project/Activity: Housing Authority of the City of Tampa (HACT), 
Tampa, FL. The HACT requested a waiver of competitive selection of 
owner proposals and deconcentration requirements to permit it to attach 
PBA to 66 units at Belmont Heights Estates Phase III.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II 
subpart E of the Initial Guidance requires that in order to meet the 
Department's goal of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic

of less than 20 percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 27, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection was granted 
for this project since the developer/partner of this project 
participated in a competitive process for bond financing and low income 
housing tax credits that required stringent selection criteria. An 
exception to the deconcentration requirements was granted since Belmont 
Heights Estates Phase III will be located on the former site of 
adjacent public housing projects, Ponce de Leon Courts and College Hill 
Homes, which had 1,300 units, all of which were demolished. The 
redeveloped site, which will include Belmont Heights Estates Phase III, 
will have 825 rental units of which 57 will be market rate. The 
decrease of 532 assisted units at this HOPE VI site along with newly 
developed mixed-income housing, are consistent with the goal of 
deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic 
opportunities.

    Project/Activity: Goshen Housing Authority (GHA), Goshen, IN. The 
GHA requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner proposals and 
the 25 percent cap on the number of units in a building that can have 
PBA attached to permit it to attach PBA to nine units at Lincoln Avenue 
Apartments.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Section II, 
Subpart F of the Initial Guidance requires that no more than 25 percent 
of the dwelling units in any building may be assisted under a housing 
assistance payments (HAP) contract for PBA except for dwelling units 
that are specifically made available for elderly families, disabled 
families and families receiving supportive services. Until regulations 
are promulgated regarding the category of families receiving supportive 
services, Headquarters has been authorizing implementation of this 
aspect of the law on a case-by-case basis.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: August 9, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection was granted 
for this project since it was competitively awarded funding by the 
Indiana Housing Finance Authority and the Federal Home Loan Bank of 
Indianapolis. An exception to the unit cap was granted since the GHA 
proposed to provide the following supportive services to families 
living in Lincoln Avenue Apartments: financial literacy; nutrition; 
family interaction; government and community awareness; job training; 
and increased health care awareness.

    Project/Activity: Richmond Housing Authority (RHA), Richmond, CA. 
The RHA requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner proposals 
and deconcentration requirements to permit it to attach PBA to 62 units 
at the Easter Hill HOPE VI Project.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Portions of 
Sec. Sec.  983.55(a) and (d) for new construction projects require 
compliance with PHA selection criteria. Section II, Subpart E of the

and economic opportunities, the projects must be in census tracts with 
poverty rates of less than 20 percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: September 8, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection and related 
requirements was granted for this project since it underwent a 
competitive process when the RHA selected its HOPE VI development 
partner. An exception to the deconcentration requirements was granted 
since within the past ten years, approximately 2,200 new market rate 
residential units have been built in the census tract and last year, 
the seven-acre Harbor Gate Shopping Center was completed. South of the 
Easter Hill site the State Department of Health Services is developing 
a research facility projected to house 1,000 employees. Another 
economic development project will be the conversion of the former Ford 
assembly plant for commercial and industrial use. These activities are 
consistent with the goal of deconcentration, and expanding housing and 
economic opportunities.

    Project/Activity: St. Louis Housing Authority (SLHA), St. Louis, 
MO. The SLHA requested a waiver of competitive selection of owner 
proposals, deconcentration, and waiting list requirements to permit it 
to attach PBA to 38 units at the Blumeyer Homes HOPE VI Revitalization 
Project Phase 2.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.51 requires competitive 
selection of owner proposals in accordance with a housing authority's 
HUD-approved advertisement and unit selection policy. Portions of 
Section 983.55(a) and (d) for new construction projects requires

of deconcentration and expanding housing and economic opportunities, 
the projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 
20 percent. Section 983.203(a)(3) requires that a public housing agency 
(PHA) may use the tenant-based waiting list, a merged waiting list, or 
a separate PBV waiting list for admission to the PBA program. If a PHA 
opts to have a separate PBA waiting list, it may use a single waiting 
list for all PBA projects or may use a separate PBA waiting list for an 
area not smaller than a county or municipality
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: September 24, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval to waive competitive selection and related 
requirements was granted for this project since the developer/partner 
of the two projects was competitively selected by the SLHA as the HOPE 
VI partner in accordance with 24 CFR 941.602(d)(1) which requires 
competitive proposal procedures for qualifications-based procurement. 
An exception to the deconcentration requirements was granted since the 
overall revitalization plan for this HOPE VI project was to replace 
1,162 public housing units with 229 replacement public housing units, 
112 non-public housing Low Income Housing Tax Credit units, 174 market 
rate rental units and 300 homeownership units for an overall reduction 
of 521 assisted, low-income units in the census tract. Approval to 
waive waiting list requirements was granted since Section 8(o)(13)(J) 
of the U. S. Housing Act of 1937 allows, subject to a PHA's waiting 
list policies and selection preferences, the maintenance of separate 
waiting lists for PBA structures as long as all families on the PHA's 
waiting list for PBA can place their names on any of the separate PBA 
waiting lists.

regulation in order to select Housing Opportunities for Persons with 
AIDS (HOPWA)-eligible families to occupy ten of the 28 units that will 
receive project-based voucher assistance at the Clare Apartments.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 982.207(b)(3) states that a housing

with a specific disability, such as HIV/AIDS
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: August 12, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Since by law persons with HIV/AIDS only may occupy 
units developed with HOPWA funds, a public housing agency may only 
authorize occupancy of such units that also receive project-based 
voucher assistance by persons with HIV/AIDS. Therefore, in selecting 
families to refer to the owner for occupancy of these units, the MPHA 
will have to pass over persons on its waiting list until it reaches a 
person with HIV/AIDS who is interested in moving into one of these 
units at the Clare Apartments.

to permit it to attach project-based assistance (PBA) under the Housing 
Choice Voucher program to 100 scattered site units as part of the St. 
Thomas HOPE VI development.
    Nature of Requirement: Section 983.256(c)(1)(i) states that to 
determine that the initial rent to owner is reasonable, the housing 
agency must use a qualified State-certified appraiser who has no direct 
or indirect interest in the property or otherwise. Section 
983.256(c)(1)(ii) requires that appraisers complete a comparability 
analysis on HUD-Form 92273.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian

    Date Granted: September 28, 2004.
    Reason Waived: HANO contracted with Applied Real Estate Analysis, 
Inc. (AREA) to complete a comprehensive rent reasonableness study to 
ensure that the rents for Section 8 units are reasonable. The 
methodology used to develop the study is consistent with regulations 
governing rent reasonableness and equals or exceeds what is normally 
done by State-certified appraisers. The rent figure is based on 
specific comparable units and on market-defined values for the 
differences between the comparable units and the unit being leased.

    Project/Activity: Bangor Housing Authority (BHA), Bangor, ME. The 
BHA requested that a waiver to the shared housing regulations to permit 
the use of the payment standard for a one-bedroom unit rather than the 
pro-rata portion of the payment standard for a three-bedroom unit as a 
reasonable accommodation for the voucher participant with a disability. 
The participant currently has a one-bedroom voucher and has been 
renting a bedroom in a three-bedroom house owned by a friend, who also 
lives there. The owner of the house wants more than the maximum amount 
of rent that the shared housing regulations allow. The participant has 
been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and Intermittent Explosive 
Disorder. These conditions are exacerbated by living in an apartment 
complex with its constant interactions with other tenants. The 
participant's therapist believes that it would be beneficial for him to 
live in a single-family home with a person he trusts and with whom he 
can feel safe and secure.

[[Page 2241]]

    Nature of Requirement: Section 982.617(c)(2) states that the rent 
to the owner for a family may not exceed the pro-rata portion of the 
payment standard amount for the size of the shared housing unit.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: August 11, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval of the waiver was granted to allow a

     Regulation: Section II, subpart E of the January 
16, 2001, Federal Register Notice, Revisions to PHA Project-Based 
Assistance (PBA) Program; Initial Guidance (Initial Guidance).
    Project/Activity: Myrtle Beach Housing Authority (MBHA), City of 
Myrtle Beach, SC. The MBHA requested an exception to the initial 
guidance since the Alliance Inn was located in a census tract with a 
poverty rate of 25 percent.
    Nature of Requirement: Section II, Subpart E of the initial 
guidance requires that in order to meet the Department's goal of 
deconcentration and expanding housing and economic opportunities, the 
projects must be in census tracts with poverty rates of less than 20 
percent.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: July 8, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Approval of the exception for deconcentration was 
granted because since 2000 there has been investment of $109,350,000 in 
housing, commercial and retail projects in downtown Myrtle Beach. These 
projects include: Corporate Center I and II office park; Horry State 
Bank Myrtle Beach Headquarters; 84 Lumber; Quality Collision auto 
repair facility; United Equipment Rentals; three hotels; and three 
condominium/hotels. As a result, 500 jobs have been created in the 
census tract and it is anticipated that an additional 1,300 jobs will 
be created by the end of the decade. The new housing and economic 
development activity in census tract 506 was consistent with the goal 
of deconcentrating poverty and expanding housing and economic 
opportunities.

     Regulation: 24 CFR 990.107(f) and 990.109.
    Project/Activity: Rochester, NY, Housing Authority. A request was 
made to permit the Rochester Housing Authority to benefit from energy 
performance contracting for developments that have resident-paid 
utilities. The Rochester Housing Authority estimates that it could 
increase energy savings substantially if it were able to undertake 
energy performance contracting for its resident-paid utilities.
    Nature of Requirement: Under 24 CFR part 990, Operating Fund 
Formula energy conservation incentive that relates to energy 
performance contracting currently applies to only PHA-paid utilities. 
The Rochester Housing Authority has resident-paid utilities.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: August 27, 2004.
    Reason Waived: In September 1996, the Oakland Housing Authority was 
granted a waiver to permit the Authority to benefit from energy 
performance contracting for developments with resident-paid utilities. 
The waiver was granted on the basis that the Authority presented a 
sound and reasonable methodology for doing so. The Rochester Housing 
Authority requested a waiver based on the same approved methodology. 
The waiver permits the Authority to exclude from its Performance 
Funding System (PFS) calculation of rental income the increased rental 
income due to the difference between updated baseline utility 
allowances (before implementation of the energy conservation measures) 
and revised allowances (after implementation of the measures) for the 
project(s) involved for the duration of the contract period, which 
cannot exceed 12 years.

for the submission of an Indian Housing Plan.
    Granted By: Michael Liu, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian 
Housing.
    Date Granted: September 30, 2004.
    Reason Waived: Due to tribal elections not occurring until June 19, 
2004, and other pressing matters, the Kiowa Tribe did not have time to 
review the IHP prepared by the previous administration before 
submission. In addition, the Tribe did not yet have in place an 
official authorized to sign the Indian Housing Plan.
