A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Delegated Processing for Certain Capital Advance Projects.
OMB Approval Number: 2502-0590.
OMB Expiration Date: 09/30/2016.
Type of Request: Reinstatement, with change, of previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
Form Number: HUD-90000, HUD-90001, HUD-90002.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This collection was discontinued in 2016 due to no funding being appropriated since 2011 for Section 202 and 811 capital advances or new Project Rental Assistance Contracts. Both Section 202 and 811 programs received new funding in 2018, therefore the collection is now being reinstated. The Delegated Processing Agreement establishes the relationship between the Department and a Delegated Processing Agency (DPA) and details the duties and compensation of the DPA. The Certifications form provides the Department with assurances that the review of the application was in accordance with HUD requirements. The Schedule of Projects form provides the DPA with information necessary to determine if they wish to process the project and upon signature commits them to such processing. Staff of the Office of Housing Assistance and Grant Administration, Multifamily Housing Office will use the information to determine if a housing finance agency wishes to participate in the program and obtain certifications that the review of the application was in accord with HUD requirements.
