This Notice also lists the following information:

Title of Proposal: Eligibility of a Nonprofit Corporation/Housing Consultant Certification.

OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0057.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Department wants to prevent incidences in which nonprofit transactions are actually controlled by a profit motivated entity rather than a nonprofit sponsor/mortgagor. The Department is required to make a determination that the nonprofit sponsor/mortgagor is acting on its own behalf and is not, either knowingly or unwittingly under the influence, control, or direction of any outside party seeking to derive a profit or gain from the proposed project. Additionally, the Department must determine if Housing Consultants hired by the sponsor/mortgagor are acting independently. The Department must also determine if the proposed services are sufficient to permit development, completion, and successful operation of the project, and if the proposed fees charged by the Housing Consultants are reasonable.

Agency form number, if applicable: HUD-3433, HUD-3434, HUD-3435, and HUD-92531.

Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The estimated total number of annual hours needed to prepare the information collection is 115; the number of respondents is 320 generating 320 annual responses; the frequency of response is on occasion or once during the application period; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response varies from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.

Status of the proposed information collection: Revision of a currently approved collection.
