Criteria for selecting proposals...

Interested parties should visit the urban EZ/EC website (www.hud.gov/cr) and the rural EZ/EC website (www.ezec.gov) periodically for updated information. The following describes criteria used for selecting Round III EZ applicants and what could be required for future rounds. In choosing among nominated urban areas eligible for designation, the Secretary shall consider: (1) The quality of the strategic plan in accordance with the key principles and evaluative criteria set forth in subsection 598.215. (2) The effectiveness of the assurance made that the strategic plan will be implemented. (3) The extent to which an application proposes activities that are creative and innovative in comparison to other applications. (4) Such other factors established by HUD. Such factors include, but are not limited to, the degree of need demonstrated by the nominated area. HUD, in its discretion, may choose to select for designation a lower rated approvable application over an otherwise higher rated application in order to increase the level of geographic diversity of designations made under the program.
