HUD Seeks Comments on Housing Notice for Revitalization Area Designation Criteria
HUD published a Federal Register (FR) Notice (Docket No. FR-6040-N-01) to solicit public comments on the proposed criteria for designating revitalization areas, which clarifies the general statutory criteria under Section 204(h) of the National Housing Act. Opportunity Zones may overlap areas designated by HUD as revitalization areas. HUD will consider these comments as it develops a future Housing Notice on revitalization area designation criteria as part of its policy of promoting the revitalization of certain communities by providing expanded homeownership opportunities.
Comments are due May 30, 2019, and must be submitted through the formal methods detailed in the FR Notice. View Federal Register Notice (Docket No. FR-6040-N-01).
