Dungannon; (b) the Town of Dungannon has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD
regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or
incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 Section 58.761 before approval of a release of funds by DHCD; or

unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance
with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to DHCD at: Director, Virginia Department of
