The purpose of this Notice is to provide guidance to HUD and PHA staff in the application of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (URA), as amended, in HOPE VI projects. While the Department of Transportation (DOT) has lead responsibility for the URA, each Federal agency assumes responsibility for the implementation and enforcement of the URA relative to its programs. In HUD, the Office of Community Planning and Development working in conjunction with all HUD program areas, has overall responsibility for the administration of the URA which includes policy, procedures, enforcement, and monitoring. This Notice will outline URA requirements and issues relative to the HOPE VI Program and has been developed by the Office of Community Planning and Development in conjunction with the Office of Public and Indian Housing. This Notice will provide guidance and assistance for program staff, address key issues, and outline good practice when funding development which causes the relocation of residents based on past experience with HOPE VI projects.
