Title of Proposal: Submission Requirements for the Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly and the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities Capital Advance Programs.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0470.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This submission, for which the Department is requesting clearance, is to permit the continued processing of all Sections 202 and 811 capital advance projects that have not yet been finally closed. The submission includes processing of the application for firm commitment to final closing of the capital advance. The information collection is needed to assist HUD in determining the Owner's eligibility and capacity to finalize the development of a housing project under the Section 202 and Section 811 Capital Advance Programs. A thorough evaluation of an Owner's capabilities is critical to protect the Government's financial interest, and to mitigate any possibility of fraud, waste and mismanagement of public funds.
