HUD Issues Notice H-2015-03 to Correct and Amend HUD Notice H-2014-14

Friday, April 10, 2015

On April 3, 2015, HUD issued Notice H-2015-03, to correct and amend language found in HUD Notice H-2014-14: Transferring Budget Authority of a Project-Based Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Contract under Section 8(bb)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937.

 

Section VII(B)(1) of Notice H-2014-14 currently misstates the standard for eligibility of a displaced person under the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (“URA”). URA implementing regulations at 49 CFR part 24 provide that a displaced person is a person that moves from real property or moves personal property from real property as a direct result of acquisition, rehabilitation or demolition for a project. The term “project” in this context refers to an activity or series of activities undertaken with Federal financial assistance. In discussing the standard for URA eligibility as a displaced person, Notice H-2014-14 provides that “any residents that move as a result of acquisition, rehabilitation or demolition or an activity or series of activities” may qualify. The phrase “or an activity or series of activities” is corrected to state “for an activity or series of activities,” which is the same as the phrase “for a project” in the URA regulations.

 

This correction conforms the existing language at Section VII(B)(1) to the URA standard that Notice H-2014-14 was intended to convey.
