                      continue to provide assistance under the contract, 
                      for a reasonable period not exceeding 60 days, for

                      owner take every reasonable action to minimize the

                      owner to fill a vacant unit, no eligible family 
                      has agreed to rent the unit within 120 days after 
                      the owner has notified the agency of the vacancy, 
                      the agency may reduce its housing assistance 
                      payments contract with the owner by the amount 
                      equivalent to the remaining months of subsidy

                      deobligated pursuant to such a contract provision 
                      shall be available to the agency to provide

                subparagraph.''.
