recognized Indian tribe or TDHE that is either a beneficiary or

by Tribal and TDHE resolutions.
The applicant must provide the lender the documentation detailed
in the "Title VI Application Process", including the certifications
required under 24 CFR Section 1000.424(d) that the applicant possesses
the legal authority to pledge, and that it will, if approved,
make the pledge of IHBG funds required by section 602(a)(2) of
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
and Matching Requirements: Borrowers may be
required to pledge security in addition to IHBG funds.
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.
The lender will provide HUD a quarterly report on the guaranteed
loan, including the status of the guaranteed loan, the current principal
balance, and the amount collected during the quarter just ended.
Participating lenders and closed loan files are reviewed to assure
compliance with the program's requirements.
Copies of loan files are maintained by HUD. The originating lender
must maintain a copy of the loan file for 2 years after loan is
guaranteed. The servicing lender must maintain a loan file for
the line of the loan plus 3 years.
