HUD Implementation of Fiscal Year 2014 Appropriations Provisions 
on Public Housing Agency Consortia, Biennial Inspections, Extremely 
Low-Income Definition, and Utility Allowances; Technical Correction

AGENCY: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing 
Commissioner, HUD.

ACTION: Notice of statutory changes; correction.


[[Page 54187]]

SUMMARY: On June, 25, 2014, HUD published a document implementing 
statutory changes made by the Department of Housing and Urban 
Development Appropriations Act, 2014 to certain programs administered 
by HUD's Office of Housing and HUD's Office of Public and Indian 
Housing. In the discussion of implementation of the new definition of 
``extremely low-income'' applicable to multifamily projects 
administered by HUD's Office of Housing, the document referred to 
``contract administrators'' and it should have referenced ``owners.'' 
This document makes that correction.

DATES: Effective Date: September 11, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Claire Brolin, Office of Multifamily 
Housing Programs, Office of Housing, U.S. Department of Housing and 
Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Room 6106, Washington, DC 20410

or speech impairments may access either of these numbers through TTY by 
calling the toll-free Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Federal Register of June 25, 2014, in 
FR Doc. 2014-14915, beginning on page 39540, the following corrections 
are made:
    1. On page 35942, in the first column, correct the second paragraph 
under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    Beginning with the effective date of this notice, a PHA or owner 
shall meet its targeting requirements through a combination of ELI 
admissions prior to the effective date (using the prior definition) and 
ELI admissions after the effective date (using the new statutory 
definition). Neither a PHA nor an owner may skip over a family on the 
waiting list if that family meets the new definition of ELI as enacted 
by this section.
    2. On page 35942, in the first column, correct the fifth paragraph 
under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    For the multifamily project-based section 8 programs, the owner 
must make available for occupancy by ELI families not less than 40 
percent of the section 8-assisted dwelling units that become available 
for occupancy in any fiscal year.
    1. On page 35942, in the second column, correct the seventh 
paragraph under section ``C. Extremely Low-Income'' to read:
    In some communities, the extremely low-income and very low-income 
levels will be identical for some or all household sizes, in which case 
PHAs or owners meet their ELI targeting requirements by serving VLI 
households, since those families meet the new definition of ELI. To 
reduce the work a PHA or owner must do to determine which standard it 
should be using, HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research has 
calculated the new income limits for extremely low-income families, 
taking the previous sentence into account, and has made the new area 
income limits available online at http://www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/il/il14/index.html.

    Dated: September 4, 2014.
Carol J. Galante,
Assistant Secretary for Housing--Federal Housing Commissioner.
