This information collection allows HUD to determine whether an applicant qualifies as a homeless provider for the purpose of lease or purchase of a HUD-acquired property. Without the information, the Department would be unable to establish eligibility. Eligible applicants, including State and local governments, may apply to HUD to become approved as homeless providers. Such approval permits the applicant to lease a HUD-owned single family home with an option to purchase, for use in housing the homeless.
