HUD/PIH RIN: 2577-AC82 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Demolition and/or Disposition of Public Housing Program (FR-5399) 

This final rule revises the HUD regulation governing the demolition and/or disposition of public housing projects (dwelling units, non-dwelling structures, and vacant land). This rule governs the process and requirements that public housing agencies (PHAs) must follow should they choose to voluntarily request HUD approval to demolish or dispose of a public housing project (other than demolitions through the HOPE VI or Choice Neighborhood program). This rule clarifies existing requirements and includes more detail to assist PHAs in carrying out their responsibilities under the demolition/disposition program. The areas addressed by this rule include: PHA application submission requirement; resident consultation and relocation requirements; fair housing and civil rights requirements; acceptable justifications for demolition and/or disposition; methods of disposition; use of proceeds; and future use restrictions on former public housing property. The rule also adds a new subpart that provides instructions to PHAs when they propose to retain ownership of a project or other real property without public housing DOT and ACC use restrictions. The new subpart is an alternative to selling or otherwise transferring projects or other real property under the disposition requirements of section 18.
