The Single Family Property Disposition Program is the marketing and sale of one to four unit properties acquired by HUD after foreclosure of an FHA-insured mortgage. Within the general program there are special disposition programs through which a portion of the property inventory is sold. These programs are referred to collectively as the Good Neighbor

Initiatives and include the Officer Next Door Program, Teacher Next Door Program, Discount Sales to Nonprofits and Local Governments program and $ HOME to Local Governments Sales program. Information for each of these programs is covered separately. The majority of foreclosed one to four unit properties are sold through the general disposition program. HUD contracts with private management companies to manage and market the properties. Properties are listed for sale by each company for the company's contract area; generally, a state. The listings may be viewed by going directly to the contractor's website or visiting HUD's website at http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh/reo/goodn/dhmabout.cfm, where you will be directed to the listings for your site. The listings provide the appraised value of the property, the property address, a brief description of the property and access to a Property Condition Report prepared by the contractor. Complete information explaining the sales process and earnest money requirements is also available. Bids must be submitted electronically by a real estate broker. An earnest money deposit is required with each bid submitted. Special opportunities are available for bidders who intend to occupy the purchased property as their personal residence. Properties not purchased during this Exclusive Listing Period are then available for the general public, including investors, during an Extended Listing Period. FHA financing may be available for purchasing many homes, including the FHA 203(k) and 203 Special (k) program providing a loan to purchase a property and pay for repairs or improvements as permitted by FHA rules.

ALFs must provide support services such as personal care, transportation, meals, housekeeping, and laundry. Typical funding will cover basic physical conversion of existing project units, common and services space. The ALCP provides funding for the physical costs of converting some or all of the units of an eligible development into an ALF, including the unit configuration, common and services space and any necessary remodeling, consistent with HUD or the State's statute/regulations (whichever is more stringent). There must be sufficient community space to accommodate a central kitchen or dining facility, lounges, recreation and other multipleareas available to all residents of the project, or office/staff spaces in the ALF. Funding for the supportive services must be provided by the owners, either directly or through a third party. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

Applicant Eligibility:

Only private nonprofit owners of eligible multifamily assisted housing developments specified in Section 683(2)(B), (C), (D), (E), and (F) (Section 202 projects for the elderly, Rural Housing Section 515 projects receiving Section 8 rental assistance, projects receiving project-based rental assistance under Section 8, projects financed by a below-market interest rate loan or mortgage insured under Section 221(d)(3) of the Housing Act, or housing financed under Section 236 of the National Housing Act) that have been in occupancy for at least five years are eligible for funding. To be eligible, owners must meet the following criteria: (1) Must be in compliance with Loan Agreement, Capital Advance Agreement, Regulatory Agreement, Housing Assistance Payment Contract, Project Rental Assistance Contract, Rent Supplement or LMSA Contract, or any other HUD grant or contract document; (2) Must be in compliance with all fair housing and civil rights laws, statutes, regulations, and executive orders a enumerated in 24 CFR 5.105(a). Beneficiary Eligibility:

Eligible residents who meet the admissions/discharge requirements as established for assisted living by State and local licensing, or HUD frailty requirements under 24 CFR891.205 if more stringent. The residents must be able to live independently but may need assistance with activities of

daily living (e.g., assistance with eating, bathing, grooming, dressing and home management activities).

Credentials/Documentation:

ALF facility must be licensed and regulated by the State (or if there is no State law providing such licensing and regulation, by the municipality or other subdivision in which the facility is located). The application must include a firm commitment for the supportive services to be offered at the ALF as part of the application. Applicants are provided all other necessary information to apply for the grants in the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).

APPLICATION AND AWARD PROCESS:

Preapplication Coordination:

Applicants must have contacted the State licensing agency for such a project to determine if the proposed project will meet state licensing requirements. A Supportive Services Plan (SSP) for the services and coordination of the supportive services which will be offered in the ALF must be developed and submitted to the appropriate State or local organization. Applicants must comply with all applicable statutory requirements and statutory requirements under Section 232(b)(6) prior to application submission. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

Application Procedure:

Applicants should ensure that their application is complete before submitting it to HUD. Applications must be submitted in accordance with requirements of the NOFA published in the Federal Register. All applications received by the deadline will be screened for curable deficiencies. After the completeness review, HUD's Hub staff will review the applications to determine whether the application meets the threshold requirements. Only if applications meet all of the threshold requirements are they eligible to be rated and ranked. Applications submitted in response to the NOFA that are eligible, pass threshold and have the minimum score, as stated in the NOFA (or more) are eligible for ranking and selection. Applications for commercial properties will not be ranked but will be submitted to Headquarters for selection on a first-come, first-served basis. Award Procedure:

HUD Hub staff teams, in each of the 18 Hub Offices, will review each application that it determines meets the requirements of the NOFA. At the end of the technical review, all applications will be either rated or technically rejected. If an application meets all program eligibility requirements after completion of the technical review, it will be rated according to the rating selection factors. The number of points that an application receives will depend on the extent to which the application is responsive to the information requested in the selection criteria. The maximum number of points an application may receive under this program is 100. After all application ratings have been finalized, they will be placed in rank order within that Hub. From this rank order, Hub staff teams in each of the 18 Hubs will select the highest ranking applications that can be funded from the dollars available within that Hub. After making the initial selections, however, the Hub may use any residual funds to select the next rank-ordered application by reducing the dollars requested by no more than 10 percent and reducing the number of units proposed, but in no case reducing the number of units below the financial threshold feasibility of five ALF units. Funds remaining after these processes are completed will be returned to HUD Headquarters. HUD will use these funds to restore units to any project reduced as a result of using the residual grant funds in a Hub. Secondly, HUD will use these funds for selecting additional applications based on the Hub ratings and rankings, beginning with the highest rated application within the 18 Hubs. Only one application will be selected per Hub from the national residual amount. If there are no approvable applications in other Hubs, the process will begin again with the selection of the next highest rated application within the remaining Hubs. This process will continue until all approvable applications are selected using the available remaining funds. If there is a tie between two or more applications, and there are insufficient residual funds to cover all tied applications, HUD Headquarters staff will choose the winning application(s) by lottery and/or reduction of grant request consistent with the reduction method described above. Deadlines:

Deadlines are specified in the NOFA. The application deadline is firm as to date and hour. In the interest of fairness to all competing applicants, the Department will treat as ineligible for consideration any application that is received after the e deadline. Applicants should take this practice into

account and make early submission of their materials to avoid risk of loss of eligibility brought about by any unanticipated or delivery-related problems. A FAX is not acceptable.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time:

A processing schedule is developed for each funding round.

Appeals:

An applicant will have fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of HUD's written notice to appeal a technical rejection to the Multifamily Hub where the applications were sent originally. HUD will make a determination on an appeal before finalizing selection recommendations. Renewals:

None.
