This notice informs the public that HUD has submitted to OMB a request for approval of the information collection described in Section A. The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on April 30, 2013.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: HUD Standard Grant Application Forms: Detailed Budget Form (HUD-424-CB), Budget Worksheet (HUD-424CBW), Application for Federal Assistance (SF-424), and the Third-Party Documentation Facsimile Transmittal Form (HUD-96011).

Type of Request: Reinstatement, without change of a previously approved collection.
Form Number: HUD-424CB and HUD-424CBW.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The use of the Third-Party Documentation Facsimile Transmittal Form allows the Department to collect the same information electronically as we would for a paper-based application. It also produces an electronic version of the document that will be matched with the electronic application submitted through grants.gov to HUD. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: An estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the forms for each grant application is 5 minutes per response, however, the burden will be assessed against each individual grant program submission under the Paperwork Reduction Act; number of respondents is 33,000 frequency of response is on the occasion of application for benefits.
