This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A.
Title of Information Collection: Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2) Reporting.

Type of Request: Extension of previously approved collection.
Form Number: N/A.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This information describes the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2). The data required includes program level, project level and beneficiary level information collected and reported on by NSP2 grantees. The data identifies who benefits from the NSP2 program and how statutory requirement are satisfied. The respondents are State, local government, non-profit and consortium applicants.
Respondents (i.e. affected public): NSP2 grantees are units of state and local governments, non-profits and consortium members.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 62.
Estimated Number of Responses: 62.
Frequency of Response: Annually.
Average Hours per Response: 2923.
Total Estimated Burdens: 2,923.
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the Information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response:
The following tables demonstrate the estimated paperwork burden for recipients in the reporting processes. The deadline for the expenditure of NSP2 funds equivalent to the original award amount is February 11, 2013. Following the expenditure deadline, grantees will have the option of requesting closeout of their grant. Post-closeout, grantees will be required to report annually on affordability restriction certifications and program income (PI), if more than $250,000 of PI is generated in a program year. The following three tables show burden hours based on HUD's estimates of grantees requesting and completing closeout, and thus, reflect different burden hours for each of the three fiscal years covered by this collection. The total annualized burden hours requested are 6,082.
