Title of Proposal: Standardized Form for Collecting Information Regarding Race and Ethnic Data.
OMB Control Number if applicable: 2535-0113.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD's standardized form for the Collection of Race and Ethnic Data complies with OMB's revised standards for Federal Agencies issued, October 30, 1997. These standards apply to HUD Program Office and partners that collect, maintain, and report Federal Data on race and ethnicity for program administrative reporting.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-27061.
Members of Affected Public: Individuals or households, Business or other-for-profit, Not-for-profit institutions, State, Local or Tribal Government.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of responses, frequency of responses, and hours of responses: This proposal will result in no significant increase in the current information collection burden. An estimation of the total number of hours needed to provide the information for each grant application is 1 hour; however, the burden will be assessed against each individual grant program submission under the Paperwork Reduction Act; number of respondents is an estimated 11,000; 60% of responses will be quarterly and 40% annually.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.
