Need
  • Only projects in market areas with sufficient
    demand will be rated
  • Projects will receive 10, 5, or 0 points based
    upon the unmet need and unmet needs ratio
    project units as a percent of the unmet need

20
FY2009 Section 202 EMAD Points Awarded for Market
Need
  • Unmet need is the number of one-person renters
    age 75 with very-low incomes and with housing

CPDs Role in 202/811 Application Reviews
  • Three areas of review
  • 1) Acquisition and Relocation
  • 2) Certification of Consistency
  • with the Consolidated Plan
  • 3) RC/EZ/EC-II Bonus Points

77
Acquisition and Relocation
  • Applicants must comply with the Uniform
    Relocation Assistance and Real Property
    Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (URA or Uniform
    Act)

78
The Uniform Act Covers
  • The acquisition of real property
  • (with or without existing structures)
  • The permanent and involuntary displacement, or
    temporary relocation, of both residential and
    non-residential persons

79
Acquisition Exception
  • Sponsors are exempt from complying with Subpart
    B (sections 24.102-24.108) of the Uniform Act
    only if an identified site can be acquired
    voluntarily in accordance with Sec. 24.101 of
    Subpart B
  • A failure to comply with 24.101 can trigger the
    requirements of Subpart B (sections
    24.102-24.108)

80
The Voluntary Process 49 CFR 24.101
  • The buyer is required to inform the Seller, prior
    to executing an agreement to purchase,
  • That it does not have the power of eminent domain
    and, it will not be able to buy the property if
    negotiations fail to result in an amicable
    agreement
  • Of the Sponsors estimate of fair market value of
    the property to be acquired

81
Estimating Fair Market Value (FMV)
  • An appraisal is not required by the URA to
    establish the FMV of a property, but the
    acquiring agencys acquisition file must include
    an explanation, with reasonable evidence, of the
    basis for the estimate
  • If the negotiated price is above the estimate of
    FMV, its best that the above-value difference be
    paid with non-federal funds

82
Application Instructions Acquisition (Exhibit 4)
  • Applications must include evidence of compliance
    with the voluntary acquisition requirements of
    the URA, i.e., the Seller was advised
  • That the Sponsor does not have the power of
    eminent domain and that it will not be able to
    buy the property if negotiations fail to result
    in an amicable agreement
  • Of the Sponsors estimate of fair market value of
    the property to be acquired

83
Exhibit 4 Instructions (contd)
  • HUD requires that the Seller must be offered the
    right to withdraw from any written purchase
    agreement if, before that agreement was executed,
    the Seller was not advised that the acquisition
    is voluntary in nature, and informed of the
    Sponsors estimate of FMV of the property to be
    acquired.

84
Exhibit 4 Instructions (contd)
  • If it was necessary that the Sponsor offer the
    Seller an opportunity to withdraw (in accordance
    with HUDs corrective action instructions), the
    Sponsor is encouraged to include such document(s)
  • Inclusion of such documents can help affirm to
    HUD that the Sponsors firm commitment is valid
    in respect to the voluntary acquisition
    requirements found at 49 CFR 24.101

85
Projects Involving Relocation
  • Owner Occupants Owner occupants who sell their
