OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0447.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD evaluates the grant applications (SF-424 and related documents) for the need and proposed use of grant funds and owners' ability to administer awarded funds of the Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program. HUD staff will use requests for extensions to evaluate anticipated program costs and the continued need for the program. The semi-annual Performance Reports will be used to determine how well grant funds met stated program goals. Grantees will also be able to retain data on the effectiveness of the program and how well the public was served. The Payment Voucher is used to monitor grant funds for eligible costs over the term of the grant, and the granted may similarly use this voucher to track and record their requests for payment reimbursement for grant-funded expenses.
