Title of Proposal: Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP).
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0485.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Completion of the Annual Report by grantees provides HUD with essential information about who the grant is serving and what sort of services the individual receive through the use of grant funds. The Summary Budget is a matrix of budgeted yearly costs, which shows the services funded through the grant and demonstrates how matching funds, participants fees, and grant funds will be used in tandem to operate the grant program. Field staff approve this annual budget and request annual extension funds according to the budget. Field staff can also determine if grantees are meeting statutory and regulatory requirements through the evaluation of this budget. HUD will use the Payment Voucher to monitor the use of grant funds for eligible activities over the term of the grant. The Grantee may similarly use the Payment Voucher to track and record their request for payment reimbursement for grant-funded activities over the term of the grant. The grantee may similarly use the Payment Voucher to track and record their request for payment reimbursement for grant-funded activities.
Agency from numbers, if applicable: HUD-90006, HUD-90198, HUD-91180-A.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The estimated number of respondents is 81, the frequency of responses is annually, estimated time to compete is approximately 4 hours for HUD-90006; .25 hours for HUD-90198; 3.5 hours for HUD-91180-A; and 2 hours for SF-269, and the total annual burden hours requested for this collection is 1,013.
