APPLICATION AND AWARD PROCESS:
Pre-application Coordination:   Applicant submits a request for a Preliminary Letter of Acceptance (PLA) to HUD. The PLA is HUD's concurrence to proceed with the Title VI application. The PLA is not an approval of the Title VI application or a commitment to approve or guarantee the Title VI loan. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.

Application Procedure:   Eligible lenders are detailed in the statute. The lender assembles the Title VI application package and submits it to HUD. HUD will review the application for compliance with Title VI of NAHASDA and the implementing regulations.

Award Procedure:   HUD issues a Letter of Firm Commitment to the lender when HUD approves the Title VI application. The lender then closes the loan and submits the closing package to HUD for review. Following a successful review, HUD issues a Certificate of Loan Guarantee to the lender.

Deadlines:   None.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time:   The Title VI regulation at 24 CFR 1000.430(a) states that HUD will make every effort to approve an application within 30 days of the receipt of a completed application, and if HUD is unable to do so, will notify the lender (the applicant via the lender) within the 30 day time frame of the need for additional time to process the application and/or if additional information is required.

Appeals:   HUD will notify the lender in writing that the application has been reduced or disapproved and the specific reasons for the reduction or the disapproval. The lender may submit additional documentation to reverse the HUD decision.

Renewals:   Not applicable.

ASSISTANCE CONSIDERATIONS:

Formula and Matching Requirements:   Borrowers may be required to pledge security in addition to IHBG funds.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance:   The term of the loan may exceed 20 years, as approved by HUD. The lender and applicant shall determine the terms of the repayment for each project, subject to HUD approval.

Audits:   Participating lenders and closed loan files are reviewed to assure compliance with the program's requirements.
