United Airlines, Inc., 973 F. Supp. 1004, 1008 (D. Colo. 1997) (“Just enter into a service contract with the government, does not provide for federal funding” for the purposes of the Rehabilitation Act. Indeed, existing federal laws expressly exclude contracts from the definition of federal financial assistance. See 32 C.F.R. 56.3 (b).

To the extent that Fort Gordon Housing, LLC entered into a lease agreement with the federal government in Fort Gordon, the applicant has not demonstrated that the property is leased at a sub-fair value. In addition, the applicant has not demonstrated that Balfour Beatty Communities, LLC, acquired its 10% interest in Fort Gordon Housing, LLC in a manner that would constitute federal financial assistance.
