Title 24—Chapter III

a proposal to build in accordance with plans and specifications prepared by his own architect and the usual commercial standards of quality and workmanship. If the proposal is acceptable, they will then enter into a contract under which the Local Authority agrees to purchase the completed property. This contract is backed by HUD's financial assistance commitment to the Local Authority, thereby enabling the developer to secure commercial construction financing in his usual manner. The “turnkey” technique may also be used in the rehabilitation of existing housing; instead of a Local Authority itself acquiring and rehabilitating existing dwellings, the Local Authority, under the “turnkey” approach, can contract with a private builder or rehabilitator to purchase from him certain dwellings which he has acquired and rehabilitated to HUD standards.

(c) Joint enterprise between Local Authorities and private organizations may consist, for example, of joint undivided ownership of housing by the Local Authority and a private organization, with moderate-income families housed in units used by the private organization and low-income tenants housed in other units with the aid of HUD annual contributions channeled through the Local Authority. Another form of joint enterprise would be for a private organization having full ownership of housing to use a portion of its units to house moderate-income families with the remaining units leased for occupancy by low-income families with the aid of HUD subsidy channeled through the Local Authority. § 1520.7 Applications; information.

(a) A Local Authority applying for financial assistance should submit its ap

plications and all related documents to the appropriate HUD Regional Office. Application forms and other forms, procedures, policy statements, and materials issued by HUD for the use or guidance of Local Authorities may be obtained through the appropriate HUD Regional Office; however, after approval of its application, a Local Authority will be sent copies of all relevant materials without specific request.

(b) Information with respect to methods of providing low-rent housing with private participation may be obtained from the Local Authority in the locality or from the appropriate HUD Regional Office. Information may also be obtained from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Washington, D.C. 20410.
