This Notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Title of Proposal: Mortgage Credit Analysis Worksheet for Native American Loan Guarantee Program and Transmittal for Loan Guarantee Fee.
OMB Control Number: 2577-0200.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The information is required by section 184 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1994, as amended by section 701 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 and implementing regulations at 24 CFR section 1005. HUD has the authority to guarantee loans for the construction, acquisition, rehabilitation or refinance of 1- to 4-family homes to be owned by Native Americans in restricted Indian lands or service areas. Mortgage lenders approved by HUD provide borrower and lender information to HUD for guarantee of the loan. If the information were not provided on Forms HUD-53036 and HUD-53038, HUD would be unable to guarantee loans and as a result lenders would be unable to provide financing to Native Americans.
Agency form number: HUD-53036 and HUD-53038.
Members of affected public: Businesses or Other For-profit.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 2,000 responses (1,000 × 2 forms), on occasion, fifteen minutes to prepare HUD-53036, five minutes to prepare HUD-53038, 334 hours total reporting burden.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of currently approved collection.
The information is currently collected manually in the Office of Loan Guarantee. Statutory mandates and Federal program requirements would not be met if the collection is not conducted, or is conducted less frequently.Start Signature
