The Department is submitting the proposed information collection to OMB for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended).
This Notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Title of Proposal: Multifamily Default Status Report.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0041.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Mortgagees use this information collection to notify HUD that a project owner is more than 30 days past due on a mortgage payment and to elect to assign a mortgage to the Department (per regulations at 24 CFR part 207.256). To avoid an assignment of mortgage to HUD, which costs the Government millions of dollars each year, HUD and the mortgagor may develop a plan for reinstating the loan since HUD uses the information as an early warning mechanism. HUD Field Office and Headquarters staff use the data to (a) monitor mortgagee compliance with HUD's loan servicing procedures and assignments; and (b) avoid mortgage assignments in the future. This information is submitted electronically via the Internet.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-92426.
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 number of burden hours is 1,256. The number of respondents is 63, the number of responses is 7,542, the frequency of response is 120, and the burden hour per response is 10 minutes.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.Start Signature
