Subpart C—Disposition of Property

erty. All office equipment, supplies, materials, and other personal property, purchased in whole or in part with grant funds and used for the administration of the program or in the administration of a project or activity operated by the city, shall be the sole property of the city. Final disposition of personal property, as described above, in the hands of a non-city operating agency shall be a contract matter between the city and the operating agency. § 580.13. Assets held by economic and

housing development corporations. Investment assets derived from the use of grant funds, such as loan notes, collateral in a guarantee fund and real property, are the property of the city or the development corporation, depending upon the contract between them. When such investment assets return to liquid form upon the completion of their specific investment purpose, the proceeds will belong to the city or the development corporation, depending upon the contract between them. Income derived from investment assets shall also belong to the city or the development corporation, depending upon the contract between them. If the ownership of investment assets and the income derived therefrom is not otherwise specified by contract or law, the city shall be the sole owner of such assets and income. § 580.14 Disposition of real property.

Following HUD approval of the certificate of program completion, HUD concurrence in the transfer of title to real property shall no longer be required.
