Title 12 published on 2015-12-05
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 12 CFR Part 1807 after this date.
On February 8, 2016, the Department of the Treasury published an interim rule (hereafter, the interim rule) implementing the Capital Magnet Fund (CMF), administered by the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund). The interim rule incorporates updates to the definitions, requirements and parameters for CMF implementation and administration. This document extends the comment period on the interim rule to May 8, 2016.
The Department of the Treasury is issuing an interim rule implementing the Capital Magnet Fund (CMF), administered by the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund). This interim rule incorporates updates to the definitions, requirements and parameters for CMF implementation and administration. In addition, sections of the CMF interim rule regarding certain definitions and project level requirements are revised in order to facilitate alignment with other federal housing programs and ease of administration. These revisions are modeled after the credit requirements for Low Income Housing Credits (LIHTCs) under section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the program requirements of the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME Program) authorized under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act, as amended, and the HOME Program final rule published on July 24, 2013. This interim rule also reflects requirements set forth in a final rule, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, adopted by the Department of the Treasury on December 19, 2014 (hereafter referred to as the Uniform Administrative Requirements). The Uniform Administrative Requirements constitute a government-wide framework for grants management codified by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), combining several OMB grants management circulars aimed at reducing the administrative burden for Recipients, and reducing the risk of waste, fraud and abuse of Federal financial assistance. The Uniform Administrative Requirements establish financial, administrative, procurement, and program management standards with which Federal award-making programs, including those administered by the CDFI Fund, and Recipients must comply. Accordingly, this interim rule includes revisions necessary to implement the Uniform Administrative Requirements, as well as to make certain technical corrections and certain programmatic updates, as well as provide clarifying language to existing program requirements.
