Title of proposal: Multifamily Financial Management Template.
OMB control number: 2502-0551.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Uniform Financial Reporting Standards (UFRS) for HUD housing programs requires multifamily housing program participants to submit financial data electronically, using generally accepted accounting principles, in a prescribed format. HUD will continue to use the financial information collected from multifamily property owners to evaluate their financial condition. Requiring multifamily property owners to report electronically has enabled HUD to provide a more comprehensive financial assessment of the multifamily property owners receiving Federal funds.
Agency form number, if applicable: None.
Members of affected public: Multifamily property owners.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents: The estimated total number of annual hours needed to prepare the information collection is 53,784; the number of respondents is 20,774, generating 20,774 annual responses; the frequency of response is annually; and the number of hours per response is approximately 7.25 hours.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of currently approved collection.Start Signature
