HUD NSP3 Response Worth a Laugh.

I recently submitted a question to Hqs HUD NSP staff in which I pointed out that legislation required HUD to publish the allocation formula within 30 days of enactment on July 21st, which would have meant publication by August 20th. 

The response I received made me laugh out loud:
The bill required that the Department establish a formula “not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment”, which the department has established.
The response goes on to say:
In the upcoming weeks, HUD will be releasing notices regarding NSP 3. These notices will include a formula allocation that describes how funds will be allocated as well as a program description that provides detailed information about the program guidelines.

So... while HUD could apparently "establish" the deadline date [aka count 30 days on a calendar from the day the President signed the bill into law], it could not actually meet the deadline.
