Title of Proposal: HUD-Owned Real Estate—Dollar Home Sales Program.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-NEW.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This collection was formerly part of a collection titled Single Family Housing Property Disposition and Acquisition (Conveyance) of Mortgaged Properties. HUD published a Federal Register notice soliciting public comments on April 17, 2006 (Vol. 71, No. 73, pages 19746-19746). No comments were received. Since that publication, however, the information collection request for the Dollar Home Sales Program has been disaggregated. This revision now presents only documents related to the Dollar Home Sales Program. Among the information collections are a local government's notification to HUD of disposition strategies and public purpose goals; affirmation that all profits from re-sales of these Dollar Homes will go to support local housing/community development initiatives; identification of specific programs or uses any profits will support; identification of an agency of government to act as the local government's agent to purchase Dollar Homes; recordkeeping; and an annual report to HUD.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: None.
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 number of burden hours needed to prepare the information collection is 688 hours; the number of respondents is approximately 110, generating approximately 825 annual responses; the frequency of response is “on occasion” and annually; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response varies from 30 minutes to one hour per response.
Status of the proposed information collection: This is a request for a new collection to disaggregate only those information collection requirements of the Dollar Home Sales Program.Start Signature
