OMB Control Number: To be assigned.

Need For the Information and Proposed Use: This information collection is required in connection with the management of grants or cooperative agreements related to evaluation and control of housing based hazards, funded by HUD as part of the Healthy Homes Initiative. Healthy Homes is authorized by the Housing Development Act of 1970. To date, seven programs have received FY 1999 funding totaling $8.5 million. HUD anticipates that this level of grant activity will continue in FY 2000 and succeeding years.

This activity should contribute to reducing housing based hazards and improving the health and safety of children and their families.
