OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2539–0015. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This information collection is required in conjunction with the issuance of Notices of Funding Availability for approximately $150,000,000 for Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control Programs that are authorized under Title X of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992, Public Law 102–550, section 1011, and other legislation. After the award of grants, HUD’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control requires its Healthy Homes Demonstration, Healthy Homes Technical Studies grantees, and Lead Technical Studies grantees which are conducting research or significant evaluation activities, to submit a Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) to the Office for approval before they initiate data collection. This requirement also applies to Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control contractors who conduct such research or evaluation activities. This requirement has been established because quality assurance procedures ensure the accuracy and validity of data. The use of quality assurance plan templates helps to ensure that quality assurance activities are well planned and thorough, and standardizes the formatting of the plans, which aids both the respondents in plan development and HUD staff in their review. The use of different templates for technical studies and demonstration projects was designed to reduce respondent burden by requiring more detailed information only for the technical studies (research) projects, consistent with their more rigorous quality assurance requirements. Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD 96008, 96012, 96013, 960014, 96015, and standard grant forms. Total Burden Estimate (annual): Application Development: Number of respondents: 330; frequency of responses: 1; hours per response: 25; burden hours: 8250. E:\FR\FM\06NON1.SGM 06NON1
