This Notice Also Lists the Following Information
Title of Proposal: Technical Assistance and Capacity Building under the Transformation Initiative (OneCPD and Core Curricula).
Description of Information Collection:
The Narratives, Matrices and Reporting Requirements associated with the One CPD Technical Assistance (NSPTA) Program will allow CPD to accurately assess the experience, expertise, and overall capacity of applicants for technical assistance under the NSPTA FY 2011 Program NOFA. They will also allow CPD to monitor and evaluate TA progress over the course of each grant and make necessary interventions. The new format for this type of collection also makes it easier for applicants to apply and report by reducing the time required for filling out an application and reporting forms, while retaining the utility of the previous collection methods.
OMB Control Number: 2506-Pending.
Agency Form Numbers: HUD-40040; HUD-40044.
Members of Affected Public: Eligible applicants (states, units of local government, public housing authorities, non-profit organizations, for-profit entities, and consortia).
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of responses, frequency of responses, and hours of responses: For OneCPD TA, total burden for applicants is estimated at 50 applicants × 60 hours. For awardees, the additional burden is estimated at 15 grant recipients × 33 hours for post-award and reporting requirements.
Status of the proposed information collection: New Collection.
