minimum time periods required by regulation prior to submission of a Request for Release of Funds
and Certification [form HUD-7015.15] to HUD/State. The Responsible Entity may choose to allow
a longer comment period. The fifteen-day objection period following submission of the request is a
statutory requirement. The objection period follows the submission date specified in the Notice or
the actual date of receipt by HUD, whichever is later. Following completion of the comment period
recipients may FAX the form HUD7015.15 to HUD together with a copy of the public notice and a
cover letter stating whether comments were received and, if so, how the recipient responded to the
comment. The Request for Release of Funds and Certification should not be submitted before the

to HUD. The date of receipt by FAX will be counted as the submission date. However, HUD will not
issue the 7015.16 “Authority to Use Grant Funds” until after the original signed form is received.
