7 CFR 1948.90 - Land transfers.

§ 1948.90 Land transfers.
(a) Transfers of real property acquired by FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354.
(1) A request for FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 acquisition of real property by a Governor of a State constitutes an agreement by that State to receive said real property and to reimburse FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 for the fair market value of said real property for the intended use.
(2) Terms and conditions, including reimbursement terms, for real property transfers shall be set forth in a Real Property Transfer Agreement between the Administrator, FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 and the appropriate Governor. These terms and conditions will be agreed upon by FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 and the State prior to FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 attempting to acquire the property. These agreements shall be prepared after consulting with OGC, and forwarded for prior approval by the FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 National Office.
(3) All funds from real property transfers received by FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 shall be deposited in the U.S. Treasury.
(b) Transfer of real property acquired and/or developed with grant funds from a grant made under this subpart to a person.
(1) Real property acquired and/or developed under this subpart may be transferred to a person for the purposes of construction of privately-owned housing.
(2) All transfers of real property to a person must be approved by the FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 State Director of the appropriate State.
(3) Transfer of real property by a recipient of assistance under this subpart to a person must be by contract which: acknowledges the use of funds provided under this subpart to acquire or develop the site; specifies the date of performance prior to delivery of the deed; provides for FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 concurrence before changes or modifications; and assures FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 that the real property will be used for the purposes under which the grant was made.
(4) Proceeds derived from the sale of land acquired or developed through the use of a grant provided under this subpart must be divided between the grantee and Rural Development on a pro rata basis. A grantee may not recover its cost from sale proceeds to the exclusion of Rural Development. The amount to be returned to Rural Development is to be computed by applying the percentage of the Rural Development grant participation in the total cost of the project to the proceeds from the sale.
(5) All funds received by FmHA or its successor agency under Public Law 103-354 from real property transfers shall be deposited in the U.S. Treasury.
