TITLE 42 - THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE

CHAPTER 131 - HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERSONS WITH AIDS

-HEAD-

Sec. 12903. General authority

-STATUTE-

(a) Grants authorized

The Secretary shall, to the extent of amounts approved in

to States, units of general local government, and nonprofit

organizations.

(b) Implementation of eligible activities

A grantee shall carry out eligible activities under section 12904

of this title through project sponsors. Any grantee that is a State

that enters into a contract with a nonprofit organization to carry

out eligible activities in a locality shall obtain the approval of

the unit of general local government for the locality before

entering into the contract.

(c) Allocation of resources

(1) Formula allocation

The Secretary shall allocate 90 percent of the amounts approved

in appropriation Acts under section 12912 of this title among

States and cities whose most recent comprehensive housing

affordability strategy (or abbreviated strategy) has been

approved by the Secretary under section 12705 of this title. Such

amounts shall be allocated as follows:

(A) 75 percent among -

(i) cities that are the most populous unit of general local

government in a metropolitan statistical area having a

population greater than 500,000 and more than 1,500 cases of

acquired immunodeficiency syndrome; and

(ii) States with more than 1,500 cases of acquired

immunodeficiency syndrome outside of metropolitan statistical

areas described in clause (i); and

(B) 25 percent among cities that (i) are the most populous

unit of general local government in a metropolitan statistical

immunodeficiency syndrome.

A single city may receive assistance allocated under subparagraph

(A) and subparagraph (B). For purposes of allocating amounts

under this paragraph for any fiscal year, the number of cases of

acquired immunodeficiency syndrome shall be the number of such

cases reported to and confirmed by the Director of the Centers

(2) Minimum grant

Subject only to the availability of amounts pursuant to

appropriations Acts under section 12912 of this title, for each

receive funding according to its proportionate share of the

total, except that each entity shall receive a minimum allocation

of $200,000 from subparagraphs (A) and (B) of paragraph (1)

combined, and any increase this entails from the formula amount

will be deducted from all other allocations exceeding $200,000 on

a pro rata basis. If allocation under subparagraph (A) of

paragraph (1) would allocate less than $200,000 for any State,

the allocation for such State shall be $200,000 and the amount of

the increase under this sentence shall be deducted on a pro rata

basis from the allocations of the other States, except that a

reduction under this subparagraph may not reduce the amount

allocated to any eligible entity to less than $200,000.

not qualify for allocation of amounts under paragraph (1);

and

(ii) States, units of general local government, and

nonprofit organizations, to fund special projects of national

significance.

In selecting projects under this paragraph, the Secretary

shall consider (i) relative numbers of acquired

immunodeficiency syndrome cases and per capita acquired

eligible persons in the community; (iii) extent of local

planning and coordination of housing programs for eligible

persons; and (iv) the likelihood of the continuation of State

and local efforts.

(C) National significance projects

For the purpose of subparagraph (A)(ii), in selecting

projects of national significance the Secretary shall consider

(i) the need to assess the effectiveness of a particular model

for providing supportive housing for eligible persons; (ii) the

innovative nature of the proposed activity; and (iii) the

potential replicability of the proposed activity in other

similar localities or nationally.

(d) Applications

Funds made available under this section shall be allocated among

applications submitted by applicants and approved by the Secretary.

Applications for assistance under this section shall be submitted

by an applicant in such form and in accordance with such procedures

as the Secretary shall establish. Such applications shall contain -

(1) a description of the proposed activities;

(2) a description of the size and characteristics of the

population that would be served by the proposed activities;

(3) a description of the public and private resources that are

expected to be made available in connection with the proposed

purchased, leased, rehabilitated, renovated, or converted with

assistance under this section shall be operated for not less than

10 years for the purpose specified in the application, except as

otherwise specified in this chapter;

(5) evidence in a form acceptable to the Secretary that the

proposed activities will meet urgent needs that are not being met

by available public and private sources; and

(6) such other information or certifications that the Secretary

determines to be necessary to achieve the purposes of this

section.

(e) Additional requirement for metropolitan areas

In addition to the other requirements of this section, to be

eligible for a grant to a metropolitan area under this section, the

major city, urban county, and any city with a population of 50,000

or more in that metropolitan area shall establish or designate a

governmental agency or organization for receipt and use of amounts

received from a grant under this section and shall submit to the

Secretary, together with the application under subsection (d) of

this section a proposal for the operation of such agency or

organization.

(f) Additional requirement for city formula grantees

In addition to the other requirements of this section, to be

eligible for a grant pursuant to subsection (c)(1) of this section,

a city shall provide such assurances as the Secretary may require

that any grant amounts received will be allocated among eligible

activities in a manner that addresses the needs within the

metropolitan statistical area in which the city is located,

including areas not within the jurisdiction of the city. Any such

city shall coordinate with other units of general local government

located within the metropolitan statistical area to provide such

assurances and comply with the assurances.
