OMB Control Number: 2577-0036.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD needs the information on the Cost Budget/Statement to determine whether PHA expenditures or requests for funds are reasonable in relation to the stage of development so that, if they are not, appropriate action can be taken to prevent budget overruns or excessive financing. PHAs submit the Actual Development Cost Certificate to notify HUD that all development work has been completed, and to report the amount for all costs relating to development. Acquisition and relocation reports enable HUD to determine PHA compliance with acquisition and relocation requirements pursuant to the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property acquisition Policies Act of 1970.
