Title of Proposal: HOPWA Annual Performance Reporting Requirements and Competitive/Renewal Grant Budget Summary Forms.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: These forms provide HUD with vital information to assess program evaluation and measure performance outcomes for the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program. Competitive/Renewal grant recipients submit an Annual Progress Report (APR) and Formula grantees submit the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). These annual reports provide HUD with information about program beneficiaries in addition to enabling HUD to assess the success of the HOPWA program through the three performance goals of housing stability, prevention of homelessness, and access to care and support. Information collected in the reports allows HUD to fulfill reporting requirements for internal reporting requirements, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and other entities.
OMB Control number: 2506-0133
Agency form number: HUD-40110-B HOPWA Competitive and Renewal of Permanent Supportive Housing Project Budget Summary; HUD-40110-C Annual Progress Report (APR); and HUD-40110-D Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
Members of affected public: Formula and competitive grant recipients of the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: APR (96 respondents and total annual responses × 55 hours per response = 5,280 hours) + CAPER (124 respondents and total annual responses × 40 hours per response = 4,960 hours) + HOPWA Competitive & Renewal of Permanent Supportive Housing Project Budget Summary (35 respondents and total annual responses × 12 hours per response = 420 hours) + Recordkeeping (255 respondents and total annual responses × 60 hours per response = 15,300) + Grant amendments and extensions (20 respondents and total annual responses × 20 hours per response = 400 hours) + Uniform relocation act appeals process (2 respondents and total annual responses × 8 hours per response = 16 hours) + Environmental Review Recordkeeping (10 respondents and total annual responses × 24 hours per response = 240 hours) = 26,616 hours.
Status of the proposed information collection: Revision of currently approved paperwork collection requirements, OMB number 2506-0133.Start Signature
