       (1) the implementation of any tax or fee in connection with

     States Code; and
       (2) any system to implement subsection 922(t) of title 18, 
     United States Code, that does not require and result in the 
     destruction of any identifying information submitted by or on 
     behalf of any person who has been determined not to be 
     prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm no more 
     than 24 hours after the system advises a Federal firearms 
     licensee that possession or receipt of a firearm by the 
     prospective transferee would not violate subsection (g) or 
     (n) of section 922 of title 18, United States Code, or State 
     law.
       Sec. 512.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law,

     shall not be available for obligation until the following 
     fiscal year.
       Sec. 513.  None of the funds made available to the 
     Department of Justice in this Act may be used to discriminate 
     against or denigrate the religious or moral beliefs of 
     students who participate in programs for which financial

     legal guardians of such students.
       Sec. 514.  None of the funds made available in this Act may

     transfer made by, or transfer authority provided in, this Act 
     or any other appropriations Act.
       Sec. 515.  Any funds provided in this Act used to implement 
     E-Government Initiatives shall be subject to the procedures

       Sec. 516. (a) Tracing studies conducted by the Bureau of 
     Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are released 
     without adequate disclaimers regarding the limitations of the 
     data.
       (b) The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives 
     shall include in all such data releases, language similar to 
     the following that would make clear that trace data cannot be 
     used to draw broad conclusions about firearms-related crime:
       (1) Firearm traces are designed to assist law enforcement 
     authorities in conducting investigations by tracking the sale 
     and possession of specific firearms. Law enforcement agencies 
     may request firearms traces for any reason, and those reasons 
     are not necessarily reported to the Federal Government. Not 
     all firearms used in crime are traced and not all firearms 
     traced are used in crime.
       (2) Firearms selected for tracing are not chosen for 
     purposes of determining which types, makes, or models of 
     firearms are used for illicit purposes. The firearms selected 
     do not constitute a random sample and should not be 
     considered representative of the larger universe of all 
     firearms used by criminals, or any subset of that universe. 
     Firearms are normally traced to the first retail seller, and 
     sources reported for firearms traced do not necessarily 
     represent the sources or methods by which firearms in general 
     are acquired for use in crime.
       Sec. 517. (a) The Inspectors General of the Department of 
     Commerce, the Department of Justice, the National Aeronautics 
     and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, 
     and the Legal Services Corporation shall conduct audits, 
     pursuant to the Inspector General Act (5 U.S.C. App.), of 
     grants or contracts for which funds are appropriated by this 
     Act, and shall submit reports to Congress on the progress of 
     such audits, which may include preliminary findings and a 
     description of areas of particular interest, within 180 days 
     after initiating such an audit and every 180 days thereafter 
     until any such audit is completed.
       (b) Within 60 days after the date on which an audit 
     described in subsection (a) by an Inspector General is 
     completed, the Secretary, Attorney General, Administrator, 
     Director, or President, as appropriate, shall make the 
     results of the audit available to the public on the Internet 
     website maintained by the Department, Administration, 
     Foundation, or Corporation, respectively. The results shall 
     be made available in redacted form to exclude--
       (1) any matter described in section 552(b) of title 5, 
     United States Code; and
       (2) sensitive personal information for any individual, the 
     public access to which could be used to commit identity theft 
     or for other inappropriate or unlawful purposes.
       (c) A grant or contract funded by amounts appropriated by 
     this Act may not be used for the purpose of defraying the 
     costs of a banquet or conference that is not directly and 
     programmatically related to the purpose for which the grant 
     or contract was awarded, such as a banquet or conference held 
     in connection with planning, training, assessment, review, or 
     other routine purposes related to a project funded by the 
     grant or contract.
       (d) Any person awarded a grant or contract funded by 
     amounts appropriated by this Act shall submit a statement to 
     the Secretary of Commerce, the Attorney General, the 
     Administrator, Director, or President, as appropriate, 
     certifying that no funds derived from

[[Page S6538]]

     the grant or contract will be made available through a 
     subcontract or in any other manner to another person who has 
     a financial interest in the person awarded the grant or 
     contract.
       (e) The provisions of the preceding subsections of this 
     section shall take effect 30 days after the date on which the 
     Director of the Office of Management and Budget, in 
     consultation with the Director of the Office of Government 
     Ethics, determines that a uniform set of rules and 
     requirements, substantially similar to the requirements in 
     such subsections, consistently apply under the executive 
     branch ethics program to all Federal departments, agencies, 
     and entities.
       Sec. 518.  None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made 
     available under this Act may be used to issue patents on 
     claims directed to or encompassing a human organism.
       Sec. 519.  None of the funds made available in this Act 
     shall be used in any way whatsoever to support or justify the 
     use of torture by any official or contract employee of the 
     United States Government.
       Sec. 520. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law or 
     treaty, none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made 
     available under this Act or any other Act may be expended or 
     obligated by a department, agency, or instrumentality of the 
     United States to pay administrative expenses or to compensate 
     an officer or employee of the United States in connection 
     with requiring an export license for the export to Canada of 
     components, parts, accessories or attachments for firearms 
     listed in Category I, section 121.1 of title 22, Code of 
     Federal Regulations (International Trafficking in Arms 
     Regulations (ITAR), part 121, as it existed on April 1, 2005) 
     with a total value not exceeding $500 wholesale in any 
     transaction, provided that the conditions of subsection (b) 
     of this section are met by the exporting party for such 
     articles.
       (b) The foregoing exemption from obtaining an export 
     license--
       (1) does not exempt an exporter from filing any Shipper's 
     Export Declaration or notification letter required by law, or 
     from being otherwise eligible under the laws of the United 
     States to possess, ship, transport, or export the articles 
     enumerated in subsection (a); and
       (2) does not permit the export without a license of--
       (A) fully automatic firearms and components and parts for 
     such firearms, other than for end use by the Federal 
     Government, or a Provincial or Municipal Government of 
     Canada;
       (B) barrels, cylinders, receivers (frames) or complete 
     breech mechanisms for any firearm listed in Category I, other 
     than for end use by the Federal Government, or a Provincial 
     or Municipal Government of Canada; or
       (C) articles for export from Canada to another foreign 
     destination.
       (c) In accordance with this section, the District Directors 
     of Customs and postmasters shall permit the permanent or 
     temporary export without a license of any unclassified 
     articles specified in subsection (a) to Canada for end use in 
     Canada or return to the United States, or temporary import of 
     Canadian-origin items from Canada for end use in the United 
     States or return to Canada for a Canadian citizen.
       (d) The President may require export licenses under this 
     section on a temporary basis if the President determines, 
     upon publication first in the Federal Register, that the 
     Government of Canada has implemented or maintained inadequate 
     import controls for the articles specified in subsection (a), 
     such that a significant diversion of such articles has and 
     continues to take place for use in international terrorism or 
     in the escalation of a conflict in another nation. The 
     President shall terminate the requirements of a license when 
     reasons for the temporary requirements have ceased.
       Sec. 521.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no 
     department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States 
     receiving appropriated funds under this Act or any other Act 
     shall obligate or expend in any way such funds to pay 
     administrative expenses or the compensation of any officer or 
     employee of the United States to deny any application 
     submitted pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 2778(b)(1)(B) and qualified 
     pursuant to 27 CFR section 478.112 or .113, for a permit to 
     import United States origin ``curios or relics'' firearms, 
     parts, or ammunition.
       Sec. 522.  None of the funds made available in this Act may

     Singapore Free Trade Agreement;
       (2) paragraph 4 of article 17.9 of the United States-

       (3) paragraph 4 of article 15.9 of the United States-
     Morocco Free Trade Agreement.
       Sec. 523.  None of the funds made available in this Act may 
     be used to authorize or issue a national security letter in 
     contravention of any of the following laws authorizing the 
     Federal Bureau of Investigation to issue national security 
     letters: The Right to Financial Privacy Act; The Electronic 
     Communications Privacy Act; The Fair Credit Reporting Act; 
     The National Security Act of 1947; USA PATRIOT Act; and the 
     laws amended by these Acts.
       Sec. 524.  If at any time during any quarter, the program 
     manager of a project within the jurisdiction of the 
     Departments of Commerce or Justice, the National Aeronautics 
     and Space Administration, or the National Science Foundation 
     totaling more than $75,000,000 has reasonable cause to 
     believe that the total program cost has increased by 10 
     percent, the program manager shall immediately inform the 
     Secretary, Administrator, or Director. The Secretary, 
     Administrator, or Director shall notify the House and Senate 
     Committees on Appropriations within 30 days in writing of 
     such increase, and shall include in such notice: the date on 
     which such determination was made; a statement of the reasons 
     for such increases; the action taken and proposed to be taken 
     to control future cost growth of the project; changes made in 
     the performance or schedule milestones and the degree to 
     which such changes have contributed to the increase in total 
     program costs or procurement costs; new estimates of the 
     total project or procurement costs; and a statement 
     validating that the project's management structure is 
     adequate to control total project or procurement costs.
       Sec. 525.  Funds appropriated by this Act, or made 
     available by the transfer of funds in this Act, for 
     intelligence or intelligence related activities are deemed to 
     be specifically authorized by the Congress for purposes of 
     section 504 of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C.

     available by this Act may be used to enter into a contract in 
     an amount greater than $5,000,000 or to award a grant in

     grantee certifies in writing to the agency awarding the

     belief, the contractor or grantee has filed all Federal tax 
     returns required during the three years preceding the 
     certification, has not been convicted of a criminal offense 
     under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and has not, more 
     than 90 days prior to certification, been notified of any

     installment agreement or offer in compromise that has been 
     approved by the Internal Revenue Service and is not in 
     default, or the assessment is the subject of a non-frivolous

     workers, agricultural producers, and firms can compete fully 
     on fair terms and enjoy the benefits of reciprocal trade

 commission on wartime relocation and internment of latin americans of 
                            japanese descent

       Sec. 541. (a) Findings.--Based on a preliminary study 
     published in December 1982 by the Commission on Wartime 
     Relocation and Internment of Civilians, Congress finds the 
     following:
       (1) During World War II, the United States--
       (A) expanded its internment program and national security 
     investigations to conduct the program and investigations in 
     Latin America; and
       (B) financed relocation to the United States, and 
     internment, of approximately 2,300 Latin Americans of 
     Japanese descent, for the purpose of exchanging the Latin 
     Americans of Japanese descent for United States citizens held 
     by Axis countries.
       (2) Approximately 2,300 men, women, and children of 
     Japanese descent from 13 Latin American countries were held 
     in the custody of the Department of State in internment camps 
     operated by the Immigration and Naturalization Service from 
     1941 through 1948.
       (3) Those men, women, and children either--
       (A) were arrested without a warrant, hearing, or indictment 
     by local police, and sent to the United States for 
     internment; or
       (B) in some cases involving women and children, voluntarily 
     entered internment camps to remain with their arrested 
     husbands, fathers, and other male relatives.
       (4) Passports held by individuals who were Latin Americans 
     of Japanese descent were routinely confiscated before the 
     individuals arrived in the United States, and the Department 
     of State ordered United States consuls in Latin American 
     countries to refuse to issue visas to the individuals prior 
     to departure.
       (5) Despite their involuntary arrival, Latin American 
     internees of Japanese descent were considered to be and 
     treated as illegal entrants by the Immigration and 
     Naturalization Service. Thus, the internees became illegal 
     aliens in United States custody who were subject to 
     deportation proceedings for immediate removal from the United 
     States. In some cases, Latin American internees of Japanese 
     descent were deported to Axis countries to enable the United 
     States to conduct prisoner exchanges.
       (6) Approximately 2,300 men, women, and children of 
     Japanese descent were relocated from their homes in Latin 
     America, detained in internment camps in the United States, 
     and in some cases, deported to Axis countries to enable the 
     United States to conduct prisoner exchanges.
       (7) The Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of 
     Civilians studied Federal actions conducted pursuant to 
     Executive Order 9066 (relating to authorizing the Secretary 
     of War to prescribe military areas). Although the United 
     States program of interning Latin Americans of Japanese 
     descent was not conducted pursuant to Executive Order 9066, 
     an examination of that extraordinary program is necessary to 
     establish a complete account of Federal actions to detain and 
     intern civilians of enemy or foreign nationality, 
     particularly of Japanese descent. Although historical 
     documents relating to the program exist in distant archives, 
     the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of 
     Civilians did not research those documents.
       (8) Latin American internees of Japanese descent were a 
     group not covered by the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 (50 
     U.S.C. App. 1989b et seq.), which formally apologized and 
     provided compensation payments to former Japanese Americans 
     interned pursuant to Executive Order 9066.
       (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this section is to establish a 
     fact-finding Commission to extend the study of the Commission 
     on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians to 
     investigate and determine facts and circumstances surrounding 
     the relocation, internment, and deportation to Axis countries 
     of Latin Americans of Japanese descent from December 1941 
     through February 1948, and the impact of those actions by the 
     United States, and to recommend appropriate remedies, if any, 
     based on preliminary findings by the original Commission and 
     new discoveries.
       (c) Establishment of the Commission.--
       (1) In general.--There is established the Commission on 
     Wartime Relocation and Internment of Latin Americans of

     Transportation shall--
       (1) not distribute from the obligation limitation for 
     Federal-aid highways amounts authorized for administrative 
     expenses and programs by section 104(a) of title 23, United 
     States Code; programs funded from the administrative takedown 
     authorized by section 104(a)(1) of title 23, United States 
     Code (as in effect on the date before the date of enactment 
     of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
     Equity Act: A Legacy for Users); the highway use tax evasion 
     program; and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics;
       (2) not distribute an amount from the obligation limitation 
     for Federal-aid highways that is equal to the unobligated

     highways and highway safety programs for previous fiscal 
     years the

[[Page S6544]]

     funds for which are allocated by the Secretary;
       (3) determine the ratio that--
       (A) the obligation limitation for Federal-aid highways, 
     less the aggregate of amounts not distributed under 
     paragraphs (1) and (2), bears to
       (B) the total of the sums authorized to be appropriated for 
     Federal-aid highways and highway safety construction programs 
     (other than sums authorized to be appropriated for provisions 
     of law described in paragraphs (1) through (9) of subsection 
     (b) and sums authorized to be appropriated for section 105 of 
     title 23, United States Code, equal to the amount referred to 
     in subsection (b)(10) for such fiscal year), less the 
     aggregate of the amounts not distributed under paragraphs (1) 
     and (2) of this subsection;
       (4)(A) distribute the obligation limitation for Federal-aid 
     highways, less the aggregate amounts not distributed under

     the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
     Equity Act: A Legacy for Users; sections 117 and section 
     144(g) of title 23, United States Code; and section 14501 of 
     title 40, United States Code, so that the amount of 
     obligation authority available for each of such sections is 
     equal to the amount determined by multiplying the ratio 
     determined under paragraph (3) by the sums authorized to be 
     appropriated for that section for the fiscal year; and
       (B) distribute $2,000,000,000 for section 105 of title 23, 
     United States Code;
       (5) distribute the obligation limitation provided for 
     Federal-aid highways, less the aggregate amounts not 
     distributed under paragraphs (1) and (2) and amounts 
     distributed under paragraph (4), for each of the programs 
     that are allocated by the Secretary under the Safe, 
     Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A 
     Legacy for Users and title 23, United States Code (other than 
     to programs to which paragraphs (1) and (4) apply), by 
     multiplying the ratio determined under paragraph (3) by the 
     amounts authorized to be appropriated for each such program 
     for such fiscal year; and
       (6) distribute the obligation limitation provided for 
     Federal-aid highways, less the aggregate amounts not 
     distributed under paragraphs (1) and (2) and amounts 
     distributed under paragraphs (4) and (5), for Federal-aid 
     highways and highway safety construction programs (other than 
     the amounts apportioned for the equity bonus program, but 
     only to the extent that the amounts apportioned for the 
     equity bonus program for the fiscal year are greater than 
     $2,639,000,000, and the Appalachian development highway 
     system program) that are apportioned by the Secretary under 
     the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
     Equity Act: A Legacy for Users and title 23, United States 
     Code, in the ratio that--
       (A) amounts authorized to be appropriated for such programs 
     that are apportioned to each State for such fiscal year, bear 
     to
       (B) the total of the amounts authorized to be appropriated 
     for such programs that are apportioned to all States for such 
     fiscal year.
       (b) Exceptions From Obligation Limitation.--The obligation 
     limitation for Federal-aid highways shall not apply to

     authority was made available under the Transportation Equity

       (11) under section 1603 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
     Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, to 
     the extent that funds obligated in accordance with that 
     section were not subject to a limitation on obligations at 
     the time at which the funds were initially made available for 
     obligation.
       (c) Redistribution of Unused Obligation Authority.--
     Notwithstanding subsection (a), the Secretary shall, after 
     August 1 of such fiscal year, revise a distribution of the

     able to obligate amounts in addition to those previously 
     distributed during that fiscal year, giving priority to those 
     States having large unobligated balances of funds apportioned 
     under sections 104 and 144 of title 23, United States Code.
       (d) Applicability of Obligation Limitations to 
     Transportation Research Programs.--The obligation limitation 
     shall apply to transportation research programs carried out 
     under chapter 5 of title 23, United States Code, and title V 
     (research title) of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
     Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, 
     except that obligation authority made available for such 
     programs under such limitation shall remain available for a 
     period of 3 fiscal years and shall be in addition to the 
     amount of any limitation imposed on obligations for Federal-
     aid highway and highway safety construction programs for 
     future fiscal years.
       (e) Redistribution of Certain Authorized Funds.--
       (1) In general.--Not later than 30 days after the date of

     by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics from the sale of 
     data products, for necessary expenses incurred pursuant to 49 
     U.S.C. 111 may be credited to the Federal-aid Highways

     long-term renewable use and affordability restrictions for 
     assisted units, and may allow ownership to be transferred to

     education (as defined under section 102 of the Higher 
     Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002));
       (2) is under 24 years of age;
       (3) is not a veteran;
       (4) is unmarried;
       (5) does not have a dependent child;
       (6) is not a person with disabilities, as such term is 
     defined in section 3(b)(3)(E) of the United States Housing 
     Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437a(b)(3)(E)) and was not receiving

     who, individually or jointly, are not eligible, to receive 
     assistance under section 8 of the United States Housing Act 
     of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437f).
       (b) For purposes of determining the eligibility of a person 
     to receive assistance under section 8 of the United States 
     Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437f), any financial 
     assistance (in excess of amounts received for tuition) that 
     an individual receives under the Higher Education Act of 1965 
     (20 U.S.C. 1001 et seq.), from private sources, or an 
     institution of higher education (as defined under the Higher 
     Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002)), shall be considered 
     income to that individual, except for a person over the age 
     of 23 with dependent children.
       Sec. 216.  Notwithstanding the limitation in the first 
     sentence of section 255(g) of the National Housing Act (12 
     U.S.C. 1715z-g), the Secretary of Housing and Urban 
     Development may, until September 30, 2012, insure and enter 
     into commitments to insure mortgages under section 255(g) of 
     the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1715z-20).
       Sec. 217.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in 
     fiscal year 2011, in managing and disposing of any 
     multifamily property that is owned or has a mortgage held by 
     the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and during 
     the process of foreclosure on any property with a contract 
     for rental assistance payments under section 8 of the United 
     States Housing Act of 1937 or other Federal programs, the 
     Secretary shall maintain any rental assistance payments under 
     section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 and other 
     programs that are attached to any dwelling units in the 
     property. To the extent the Secretary determines, in 
     consultation with the tenants and the local government, that 
     such a multifamily property owned or held by the Secretary is 
     not feasible for continued rental assistance payments under 
     such section 8 or other programs, based on consideration of 
     (1) the costs of rehabilitating and operating the property 
     and all available Federal, State, and local resources, 
     including rent adjustments under section 524 of the 
     Multifamily Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 
     1997 (``MAHRAA'') and (2) environmental conditions that 
     cannot be remedied in a cost-effective fashion, the Secretary 
     may, in consultation with the tenants of that property, 
     contract for project-based rental assistance payments with an 
     owner or owners of other existing housing properties, or 
     provide other rental assistance. The Secretary shall also 
     take appropriate steps to ensure that project-based contracts 
     remain in effect prior to foreclosure, subject to the 
     exercise of contractual abatement remedies to assist 
     relocation of tenants for imminent major threats to health 
     and safety after written notice to and informed consent of 
     the affected tenants and use of other available

[[Page S6558]]

     remedies, such as partial abatements or receivership. After 
     disposition of any multifamily property described under this 
     section, the contract and allowable rent levels on such 
     properties shall be subject to the requirements under section 
     524 of MAHRAA.
       Sec. 218.  During fiscal year 2012, in the provision of 
     rental assistance under section 8(o) of the United States 
     Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437f(o)) in connection with a 
     program to demonstrate the economy and effectiveness of 
     providing such assistance for use in assisted living 
     facilities that is carried out in the counties of the State 
     of Michigan notwithstanding paragraphs (3) and (18)(B)(iii) 
     of such section 8(o), a family residing in an assisted living 
     facility in any such county, on behalf of which a public 
     housing agency provides assistance pursuant to section 
     8(o)(18) of such Act, may be required, at the time the family 
     initially receives such assistance, to pay rent in an amount 
     exceeding 40 percent of the monthly adjusted income of the 
     family by such a percentage or amount as the Secretary of 
     Housing and Urban Development determines to be appropriate.
       Sec. 219.  The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development 
     shall report quarterly to the House of Representatives and

     source contracts, including terms of the contracts, cost, and 
     a substantive rationale for using a sole-source contract.
       Sec. 220.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the 
     recipient of a grant under section 202b of the Housing Act of 
     1959 (12 U.S.C. 1701q) after December 26, 2000, in accordance 
     with the unnumbered paragraph at the end of section 202(b) of 
     such Act, may, at its option, establish a single-asset 
     nonprofit entity to own the project and may lend the grant 
     funds to such entity, which may be a private nonprofit 
     organization described in section 831 of the American 
     Homeownership and Economic Opportunity Act of 2000.
       Sec. 221. (a) The amounts provided under the subheading 
     ``Program Account'' under the heading ``Community Development 
     Loan Guarantees'' may be used to guarantee, or make 
     commitments to guarantee, notes, or other obligations issued 
     by any State on behalf of nonentitlement communities in the 
     State in accordance with the requirements of section 108 of 
     the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 in fiscal 
     year 2012 and subsequent years:  Provided, That, any State 
     receiving such a guarantee or commitment shall distribute all 
     funds subject to such guarantee to the units of general local 
     government in nonentitlement areas that received the 
     commitment.
       (b) Not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of

     all that follows through the period at the end and inserting 
     ``fiscal year 2012.''; and
       (2) in subsection (o), by striking ``September'' and all 
     that follows through the period at the end and inserting 
     ``September 30, 2012.''.

     or fewer public housing units may elect to be exempt from any 
     asset management requirement imposed by the Secretary of 
     Housing and Urban Development in connection with the 
     operating fund rule:  Provided, That an agency seeking a 
     discontinuance of a reduction of subsidy under the operating 
     fund formula shall not be exempt from asset management 
     requirements.
       Sec. 224.  With respect to the use of amounts provided in

     impose any requirement or guideline relating to asset 
     management that restricts or limits in any way the use of 
     capital funds for central office costs pursuant to section 
     9(g)(1) or 9(g)(2) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 
     (42 U.S.C. 1437g(g)(1), (2)):  Provided, That a public 
     housing agency may not use capital funds authorized under 
     section 9(d) for activities that are eligible under section 
     9(e) for assistance with amounts from the operating fund in 
     excess of the amounts permitted under section 9(g)(1) or 
     9(g)(2).
       Sec. 225.  No official or employee of the Department of 
     Housing and Urban Development shall be designated as an 
     allotment holder unless the Office of the Chief Financial 
     Officer has determined that such allotment holder has 
     implemented an adequate system of funds control and has 
     received training in funds control procedures and directives. 
     The Chief Financial Officer shall ensure that, not later than 
     90 days after the date of enactment of this Act, a trained 
     allotment holder shall be designated for each HUD subaccount 
     under the heading ``Administration, Operations, and 
     Management'' as well as each account receiving appropriations 
     for ``Program Office Salaries and Expenses'' within the 
     Department of Housing and Urban Development.
       Sec. 226.  The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development 
     shall report quarterly to the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations on the status of all section 8 project-based 
     housing, including the number of all project-based units by

     housing being refinanced under the Mark-to-Market program. 
     The Secretary shall in the report identify all existing units 
     maintained by region as section 8 project-based units and all 
     project-based units that have opted out of section 8 or have 
     otherwise been eliminated as section 8 project-based units. 
     The Secretary shall identify in detail and by project all the 
     efforts made by the Department to preserve all section 8

     which opted out or otherwise were lost as section 8 project-
     based units. Such analysis shall include a review of the 
     impact of the loss of any subsidized units in that housing 
     marketplace, such as the impact of cost and the loss of 
     available subsidized, low-income housing in areas with scarce 
     housing resources for low-income families.

     competitively awarded. Notwithstanding any other provision of 
     law, for fiscal year 2012 and subsequent fiscal years, the 
     Secretary may make the NOFA available only on the Internet at 
     the appropriate Government Web site or through other 
     electronic media, as determined by the Secretary.
       Sec. 229.  No property identified by the Secretary of 
     Housing and Urban Development as surplus Federal property for 
     use to assist the homeless shall be made available to any 
     homeless group unless the group is a member in good standing 
     under any of HUD's homeless assistance programs or is in good 
     standing with any other program which receives funds from any 
     other Federal or State agency or entity:  Provided, That an 
     exception may be made for an entity not involved with Federal 
     homeless programs to use surplus Federal property for the 
     homeless only after the Secretary or another responsible 
     Federal agency has fully and comprehensively reviewed all 
     relevant finances of the entity, the track record of the 
     entity in assisting the homeless, the ability of the entity 
     to manage the property, including all costs, the ability of 
     the entity to administer homeless programs in a manner that 
     is effective to meet the needs of the homeless population 
     that is expected to use the property and any other related 
     issues that demonstrate a commitment to assist the homeless:  
     Provided further, That the Secretary shall not require the 
     entity to have cash in hand in order to demonstrate financial 
     ability but may rely on the entity's prior demonstrated fund-
     raising ability or commitments for in-kind donations of goods 
     and services:  Provided further, That the Secretary shall 
     make all such information and its decision regarding the 
     award of the surplus property available to the committees of 
     jurisdiction, including a full justification of the 
     appropriateness of the use of the property to assist the 
     homeless as well as the appropriateness of the group seeking 
     to obtain the property to use such property to assist the 
     homeless:  Provided further, That, this section shall apply 
     to properties in fiscal years 2011 and 2012 made available as

     appropriation for salaries and expenses in any such account 
     or set-aside shall be increased or decreased by more than 5 
     percent or $5,000,000, whichever is less, without prior 
     written approval of the House and Senate Committees on 
     Appropriations.

     the program up to three Public Housing Agencies that are High 
     Performing Agencies under the Public Housing Assessment 
     System (PHAS) or the Section Eight Management Assessment 
     Program (SEMAP). No PHA shall be granted this designation 
     through this section that administers in excess of 10,000 
     aggregate housing vouchers and public housing units. No PHA 
     granted this designation through this section shall receive 
     more funding under sections 8 or 9 of the United States 
     Housing Act of 1937 than they otherwise would have received 
     absent this designation. In addition to other reporting 
     requirements, all Moving-to-Work agencies shall report 
     financial data to the Department of Housing and Urban 
     Development as specified by the Secretary, so that the effect 
     of Moving-to-Work policy changes can be measured.
       Sec. 235.  Of the unobligated balances remaining from funds 
     appropriated under the heading ``Tenant-Based Rental 
     Assistance'' under the ``Full-Year Continuing Appropriations 
     Act, 2011'', $750,000,000 are rescinded from the 
     $4,000,000,000 which are available on October 1, 2011:  
     Provided, That such amounts may be derived from reductions to 
     public housing agencies' calendar year 2012 allocations based 
     on the excess amounts of public housing agencies' net 
     restricted assets accounts, including the net restricted 
     assets of MTW agencies (in accordance with VMS data in 
     calendar year 2011 that is verifiable and complete), as 
     determined by the Secretary:  Provided further, That in 
     making such adjustments, the Secretary shall preserve public 
     housing authority reserves at no less than one month, to the 
     extent practicable.

     1437) is amended--
       (1) in section 3(a)(1) by inserting before the period at 
     the end of the second sentence the following: ``, except in 
     the case of any family with a fixed income, as defined by the 
     Secretary, after the initial review of the family's income, 
     the public housing agency or owner shall not be required to 
     conduct a review of the family's income for any year for 
     which such family certifies, in accordance with such 
     requirements as the Secretary shall establish, that 90 
     percent or more of the income of the family consists of fixed 
     income, and that the sources of such income have not changed 
     since the previous year, except that the public housing 
     agency or owner shall conduct a review of each such family's 
     income not less than once every 3 years'';
       (2) in section 3(b)(2) by inserting after the second

     and Human Services under the authority of section 673(2) of 
     the Community Services Block Grant Act (42 U.S.C. 9902(2)), 
     applicable to a family of the size involved; or (B) 30 
     percent of the median family income for the area, as 
     determined by the Secretary, with adjustments for smaller and 
     larger families, except that the Secretary may establish 
     income ceilings higher or lower than 30 percent of the median 
     for the area on the basis of the Secretary's findings that 
     such variations are necessary because of unusually high or 
     low family incomes, and except that clause (A) of this 
     sentence shall not apply in the case of public housing 
     agencies located in Puerto Rico or any other territory or 
     possession of the United States.'';
       (3) in paragraph (2) of section 3(b) by adding at the end

       (A) in clause (i) by striking ``$400'' and inserting in 
     lieu thereof ``$675''; and

     fair market rentals in the Federal Register, and such fair 
     market rentals shall become effective no earlier than 30 days 
     after the date of such publication. The Secretary shall 
     establish a procedure for public housing agencies and other 
     interested parties to comment on such fair market rentals and 
     to request, within a time specified by the Secretary, 
     reevaluation of the fair market rental in a jurisdiction. The 
     Secretary shall publish for comment in the Federal Register 
     notices of proposed material changes in the methodology for 
     estimating fair market rentals and notices specifying the 
     final decisions regarding such proposed substantial 
     methodological changes and responses to public comments.'';

     section at the time the fair market rental was reduced. The 
     Secretary shall allow public housing agencies to request

     subject to criteria and procedures established by the 
     Secretary'';
       (7) in subparagraph (D) of section 8(o)(1) by inserting

     public housing agency may establish a payment standard of not 
     more than 120 percent of the fair market rent, where 
     necessary, as a reasonable accommodation for a person with a 
     disability, without approval of the Secretary. A public 
     housing agency may seek approval of the Secretary to use a 
     payment standard greater than 120 percent of the fair market 
     rent as a reasonable accommodation for a disabled family or 
     other family with a person with a disability. In connection 
     with the use of any increased payment standard established or 
     approved pursuant to either of the preceding two sentences as 
     a reasonable accommodation for a person with a disability, 
     the Secretary may not establish additional requirements 
     regarding the amount of adjusted income paid by such person 
     for rent'';
       (8) in section 16(a)(2)(A) by striking ``families whose 
     incomes'' and all that follows through ``low family incomes''

                 Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation

          payment to the neighborhood reinvestment corporation

       For payment to the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation 
     for use in neighborhood reinvestment activities, as 
     authorized by the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation Act 
     (42 U.S.C. 8101-8107), $135,000,000, of which $5,000,000 
     shall be for a multi-family rental housing program:  
     Provided, That in addition, $65,000,000 shall be made 
     available until expended to the Neighborhood Reinvestment 
     Corporation for mortgage foreclosure mitigation activities, 
     under the following terms and conditions:
       (1) The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (``NRC'') 
     shall make grants to counseling intermediaries approved by 
     the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) (with 
     match to be determined by the NRC based on affordability and 
     the economic conditions of an area; a match also may be 
     waived by the NRC based on the aforementioned conditions) to 
     provide mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance primarily 
     to States and areas with high rates of defaults and 
     foreclosures to help eliminate the default and foreclosure of 
     mortgages of owner-occupied single-family homes that are at 
     risk of such foreclosure. Other than areas with high rates of 
     defaults and foreclosures, grants may also be provided to 
     approved counseling intermediaries based on a geographic 
     analysis of the Nation by the NRC which determines where 
     there is a prevalence of mortgages that are risky and likely 
     to fail, including any trends for mortgages that are likely 
     to default and face foreclosure. A State Housing Finance 
     Agency may also be eligible where the State Housing Finance 
     Agency meets all the requirements under this paragraph. A 
     HUD-approved counseling intermediary shall meet certain 
     mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance counseling 
     requirements, as determined by the NRC, and shall be approved 
     by HUD or the NRC as meeting these requirements.
       (2) Mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance shall only 
     be made available to homeowners of owner-occupied homes with 
     mortgages in default or in danger of default. These mortgages 
     shall likely be subject to a foreclosure action and 
     homeowners will be provided such assistance that shall 
     consist of activities that are likely to prevent foreclosures 
     and result in the long-term affordability of the mortgage 
     retained pursuant to such activity or another positive 
     outcome for the homeowner. No funds made available under this 
     paragraph may be provided directly to lenders or homeowners 
     to discharge outstanding mortgage balances or for any other 
     direct debt reduction payments.
       (3) The use of Mortgage Foreclosure Mitigation Assistance 
     by approved counseling intermediaries and State Housing 
     Finance Agencies shall involve a reasonable analysis of the 
     borrower's financial situation, an evaluation of the current 
     value of the property that is subject to the mortgage, 
     counseling regarding the assumption of the mortgage by 
     another non-Federal party, counseling regarding the possible 
     purchase of the mortgage by a non-Federal third party, 
     counseling and advice of all likely restructuring and 
     refinancing strategies or the approval of a work-out strategy 
     by all interested parties.
       (4) NRC may provide up to 15 percent of the total funds 
     under this paragraph to its own charter members with 
     expertise in foreclosure prevention counseling, subject to a 
     certification by the NRC that the procedures for selection do 
     not consist of any procedures or activities that could be 
     construed as an unacceptable conflict of interest or have the 
     appearance of impropriety.
       (5) HUD-approved counseling entities and State Housing 
     Finance Agencies receiving funds under this paragraph shall 
     have demonstrated experience in successfully working with 
     financial institutions as well as borrowers facing default, 
     delinquency and foreclosure as well as documented counseling 
     capacity, outreach capacity, past successful performance and 
     positive outcomes with documented counseling plans (including 
     post mortgage foreclosure mitigation counseling), loan 
     workout agreements and loan modification agreements. NRC may 
     use other criteria to demonstrate capacity in underserved 
     areas.
       (6) Of the total amount made available under this 
     paragraph, up to $3,000,000 may be made available to build 
     the mortgage foreclosure and default mitigation counseling 
     capacity of counseling intermediaries through NRC training 
     courses with HUD-approved counseling intermediaries and their 
     partners, except that private financial institutions that 
     participate in NRC training shall pay market rates for such 
     training.
       (7) Of the total amount made available under this 
     paragraph, up to 4 percent may be used for associated 
     administrative expenses for the NRC to carry out activities 
     provided under this section.
       (8) Mortgage foreclosure mitigation assistance grants may 
     include a budget for outreach and advertising, and training, 
     as determined by the NRC.
       (9) The NRC shall continue to report bi-annually to the 
     House and Senate Committees on Appropriations as well as the 
     Senate Banking Committee and House Financial Services 
     Committee on its efforts to mitigate mortgage default.
