The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on July 25, 2014.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program: Annual Grantee Performance Reporting Requirements and Competitive/Renewal Grant Project Budget Summary.
OMB Approval Number: 2506-0133.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection, without change.
Form Number: HUD-40110-B, HUD-40110-C; and HUD-40110-D.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The HOPWA Competitive Application and Renewal of Permanent Supportive Housing Project Budget Summary, HUD-40110-B, is a grant applicant submission requirement for new competitive grant applications solicited through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) and for all annual expiring renewal grant reviews. The budget form enables an evaluation of competitive grant applications to determine if the proposed project activity is feasible within the context of the overall program design inclusive of proposed planned and actual accomplishments. The Annual Progress Report (APR), HUD-40110-C, for competitive grantees, and the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), HUD-40110-D, for formula grantees, are critical reporting requirements necessary to aggregate individual and national performance data, both program output data and program beneficiary outcomes to inform HUD's strategic management plan goals including requested reports to Congress. The data collection informs local communities on the use of these federal resources and in planning and coordination with other leveraged and available resources.
Respondents: HOPWA program formula and competitive grant recipients and competitive/renewal grant applicants.
