4. Be cleared from Federal Disbarment Status (SAM); and
5. Comply with Section 504 (Section 504 states that "no qualified individual with a disability in the United States shall be excluded from, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under" any program or activity that receives Federal financial assistance.)

Meeting a HUD National Objective: For CDBG funding consideration, the project must be designed to meet the following HUD national objective and the proposer must provide supporting documentation to demonstrate how the project will comply.
