SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with 24 CFR part 581 and 
section 501 of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (42 
U.S.C. 11411), as amended, HUD is publishing this Notice to identify 
Federal buildings and other real property that HUD has reviewed for 
suitability for use to assist the homeless. The properties were 
reviewed using information provided to HUD by Federal landholding 
agencies regarding unutilized and underutilized buildings and real 
property controlled by such agencies or by GSA regarding its inventory 
of excess or surplus Federal property. This Notice is also published in 
order to comply with the December 12, 1988 Court Order in National 
Coalition for the Homeless v. Veterans Administration, No. 88-2503-OG 
    Properties reviewed are listed in this Notice according to the 
following categories: Suitable/available, suitable/unavailable, and 
suitable/to be excess, and unsuitable. The properties listed in the 
three suitable categories have been reviewed by the landholding 
agencies, and each agency has transmitted to HUD: (1) Its intention to 
make the property available for use to assist the homeless, (2) its 
intention to declare the property excess to the agency's needs, or (3) 
a statement of the reasons that the property cannot be declared excess 
or made available for use as facilities to assist the homeless.
    Properties listed as suitable/available will be available 
exclusively for homeless use for a period of 60 days from the date of 
this Notice. Where property is described as for ``off-site use only'' 
recipients of the property will be required to relocate the building to 
their own site at their own expense. Homeless assistance providers 
interested in any such property should send a written expression of 
interest to HHS, addressed to Theresa Ritta, Ms. Theresa M. Ritta, 
Chief Real Property Branch, the Department of Health and Human 
Services, Room 5B-17, Parklawn Building, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, 
MD 20857, (301) 443-2265 (This is not a toll-free number.) HHS will 
mail to the interested provider an application packet, which will 
include instructions for completing the application. In order to 
maximize the opportunity to utilize a suitable property, providers 
should submit their written expressions of interest as soon as 
possible. For complete details concerning the processing of 
applications, the reader is encouraged to refer to the interim rule 
governing this program, 24 CFR part 581.
    For properties listed as suitable/to be excess, that property may, 
if subsequently accepted as excess by GSA, be made available for use by 
the homeless in accordance with applicable law, subject to screening 
for other Federal use. At the appropriate time, HUD will publish the 
property in a Notice showing it as either suitable/available or 
    For properties listed as suitable/unavailable, the landholding 
agency has decided that the property cannot be declared excess or made 
available for use to assist the homeless, and the property will not be 
    Properties listed as unsuitable will not be made available for any
