Relocation Policy
Policy Statement

DND will ensure that projects receiving federal funds adhere to the requirements of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended (URA).

URA is used to protect residential and non-residential tenants and property owners from being displaced involuntarily as a direct result of federally assisted acquisition, rehabilitation or demolition projects. Sponsors submitting proposals in response to Request for Proposals where temporary relocation is anticipated are required to submit the following information at the time of application submission: 1) Project Information Form, 2) Master Tenant List, 3) General Information Notice, and 4) an Estimated Relocation Budget. Projects that anticipate any permanent displacement must provide additional information. In addition, mixed-use projects must provide information on all tenants - both residential and non-residential.

Additional information and guidance can be found in DND's Tenant Relocation Policies and Procedures for Applicants and Recipients of CDBG and HOME Funds from the Neighborhood Housing Development Division (Effective 11/99).
