Title of Proposal: Information on the Current Status of Homebuyers Assisted through the HOME and American Dream Downpayment Initiative (ADDI) Programs.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request is for the clearance of a survey on a sample of homebuyers assisted through the HOME and ADDI programs during calendar years 2000 through 2005. The purpose of the survey is to provide a statistically reliable estimate of the incidence of payment delinquency and foreclosure experienced by these homebuyers in response to a request from Congress for this information. The survey will select a sample of city, county, and state governmental organizations that participate in the HOME and ADDI programs (“Participating Jurisdictions” or “PJ”) in each year from 2000 to 2005 to provide information on up to 50 homebuyers assisted in that year. The information will supplement information routinely reported to HUD on the homebuyers characteristics and will indicate whether the PJ has had any indication that the homebuyer has experienced payment delinquency and/or foreclosure. A total of 33 PJs will be sampled for each of these years to provide information on up to 50 assisted homebuyers. Since PJs may be selected for more than one year, a total of 129 PJs are to be sampled out of a total of 423 PJs eligible for the survey.
OMB Approval Number: Pending.
Agency Form Numbers: None.
Members of Affected Public: City, County and State governmental organizations receiving funding through the HOME and ADDI programs.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 129 Participating Jurisdictions will be surveyed and asked to provide information on a total of 6,539 homebuyers assisted through the HOME and ADDI programs. Average time to complete the survey will be 12.0 hours (720 minutes) per respondent. Respondents will only be contacted once. Total burden hours are 1,548.
Status of the proposed information collection: Pending OMB approval.Start Signature
Dated: February 23, 2007.
