2. An institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized; or
3. A public or private sleeping place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
An inadequate nighttime residence shall be limited to those residences exhibiting one or more of the following conditions: overcrowding (1.01 or more persons per room); lack of complete plumbing for exclusive use (indoor flush toilet, piped hot and cold water, and bathtub or shower); lack of heat (during cold weather). The potential for these conditions to exist does not constitute inadequate housing.

“Termination” means permanent withdrawal of the eligible entity’s authority to obligate funds before that authority would otherwise expire. If an eligible entity’s authority to obligate funds is terminated, no funds may be obligated by the eligible entity after the effective date of the termination. It may also mean the voluntary relinquishment of this authority by the eligible entity.
