A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Community Development Block Grant Entitlement Program.
OMB Approval Number: 2506-0077.
Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
Form Numbers: N/A.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request identifies the estimated reporting burden associated with information that CDBG entitlement grantees will report in IDIS for CDBG-assisted activities, recordkeeping requirements, and reporting requirements. Grantees are encouraged to update their accomplishments in IDIS on a quarterly basis. In addition, grantees are required to retain records necessary to document compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements, Executive Orders, applicable OMB Circulars, and determinations required to be made by grantees as a determination of eligibility. Grantees are required to prepare and submit their Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports, which demonstrate the progress grantees make in carrying out CDBG-assisted activities listed in their consolidated plans. This report is due to HUD 90 days after the end of the grantee's program year. The information required for any particular activity is generally based on the eligibility of the activity and which of the three national objectives (benefit low- and moderate-income persons; eliminate/prevent slums or blight; or meet an urgent need) the grantee has determined that the activity will address.
Respondents: Grant recipients (metropolitan cities and urban counties) participating in the CDBG Entitlement Program.
Estimation Number of Respondents: 1,164.
Estimation Number of Responses: The proposed frequency of the response to the collection is on an annual basis.
Frequency of Response: Annually.
Total Estimated Burdens: The total estimated burden is 544,984.
