Title: Grants to States for Low-Income Housing Projects in lieu of Tax Credits.
Abstract: Authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) (Pub. L. 111-5), the Department of the Treasury implemented several provisions of the Act, more specifically Division B—Tax, Unemployment, Health, State Fiscal Relief, and Other Provisions. Among these components is a program which requires Treasury to make payments, in lieu of a tax credit, to state housing credit agencies. State housing credit agencies use the funds to make subawards to finance the construction or acquisition and rehabilitation of qualified low-income buildings. The collection of information from the agencies is necessary to properly monitor compliance with program requirements.
Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 55.
Estimated Annual Hours per Response: 0.50.
Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 57.
Request For Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. The public is invited to submit comments concerning: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
