"The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development may not make financial assistance, including assistance under section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937, available for the benefit of citizens of the Freely Associated States (Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Republic of Palau) who have entered the Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands as non-immigrants pursuant to section 141 of the Compact of Free Association. I am replying to your letter of October 3, 1995, in which you inquire whether section 214 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980 (codified as amended at 42 U.S.C. § 1436a) ('section 214') precludes the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from making financial assistance under section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 available for the benefit of citizens of the Freely Associated States (Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Republic of Palau) who are present in the Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands pursuant to section 141 of the Compact of Free Association. We conclude that it does."
