Title of Proposal: Optional Relocation Payment Claim Forms.

OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2506-0016.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Application for displacement/relocation assistance for persons (families, individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations and farms) displaced by, or temporarily relocated for, certain HUD programs. No changes are being made for Forms HUD-40054, HUD-40055, HUD-40056, HUD-40057, HUD-40058, HUD-40061, and HUD-40072.

A new form HUD-40030, “Claim for Temporary Relocation Expenses (Residential Moves)” has been added based on requests from HUD program participants for such a form to help them calculate payments. Revised government-wide URA regulations were published by the Department of Transportation on January 4, 2005 (effective February 3, 2005). Under the regulations, agencies are required to reimburse residential occupants of a dwelling who will not be permanently displaced for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with temporary relocation. These expenses may include moving expenses and increased housing costs during the temporary relocation (49 CFR 24.2(9)(ii)(D), Appendix A).

Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-40030, HUD-40054, HUD-40055, HUD-40056, HUD-40057, HUD-40058, HUD-40061, and HUD-40072.
