Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection Revision to OMB
Title: Fair Housing Initiatives Program SuperNOFA Application Kit and Reporting/Recordkeeping Requirements Revision.
OMB Approval Number: 2529-0033.
Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: The information required by this certification will enable the Department to determine that selected agencies are using FHIP funds as intended (to prevent and eliminate discriminatory housing practices). These grants are authorized under Section 561 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1987 (42 U.S.C. 3616 note, established the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) and the implementing regulations are found at 24 CFR Part 125.
Agency form numbers: SF-269A, SF-424/A/B/M: SF-LLL, HUD 2880, HUD 2992, HUD50070, HUD-50071:
Members of Affected Public: 400.
Reporting Burden: The Department estimates that the application kit, Certificate, quarterly report, final report, and enforcement log, will have the following reporting burdens:
|Application||Number of respondents||Frequency||Hours per response||Burden hours|
|The number of respondents is based on the total number of applications received under all initiatives. The number of hours per response is an average based on grantee estimates of time to review instructions, search existing data sources, prepare required responses to the application kit, and assemble exhibits.|
Estimates are based on 70 of 400 applications funded, thus, 70 respondents will file a Certification for Recipients of FHIP Funds, at least twice. In addition, respondents will report 4 times annually on program performance and financial status. Approximately one-half of the funded recipients will be requested to complete the enforcement log. Hours per response are averages based on grantee estimates of time to review instructions, search existing data sources, gather and maintain the needed data, and complete or respond to the requested information. Actual time may vary because of differences in grant activities, size, or complexity, and depending on whether the grantee automates the format.
