A

The "Buy American" provision (FAR 52.225) of NSP2 only applies to construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of public buildings and public works. This provision is not applicable to construction projects involving private residential dwellings, and does not apply when funds are used solely for land acquisition. However, HUD has interpreted "public buildings" to include public housing and other structures that will remain in public ownership.
