Eligibility Conditions

Image of Styled Text: Revised


Another revised definition relates to eligibility.

Key provision is (D) where supplemental information in the appendix identifies that temporary relocations extending beyond 12 months trigger full relocation benefits for the displaced person.

This situation is encountered as rehabilitation projects and also when persons have been evacuated for environmental cleanup.

In (K), additional wording adds that an agency can provide advisory services to unlawful occupants.

"Unlawful occupant is a person who occupies without property right, title or payment of rent or a person legally evicted, with no legal rights to occupy a property under State law. An agency, at its discretion, may consider such person to be in lawful occupancy." This definition gives an agency the option to provide all benefits.

Item (M) is new and refers to tenants required to move as the result of the sale of the dwelling they occupy to a person receiving down payment assistance under the American Dream Down Payment Initiative - SEE Pub. L. 108-186.
