This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: 2011 Rental Housing Finance Survey. OMB Control Number: 0000–0000. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Rental Housing Finance Survey (RHFS) provides a measure of financial, mortgage, and property characteristics of multifamily rental housing properties in the United States. The RHFS focuses on mortgage financing of multifamily rental housing properties, with emphasis on new originations for purchase, capital improvement, refinancing, and the loan terms and property characteristics associated with these originations. The RHFS will collect data on property values of residential structures, characteristics of residential structures, rental status and rental value of units within the residential structures, commercial use of space within residential structures, property management status, ownership status, a detailed assessment of mortgage financing, and benefits received from federal, state, local, and nongovernmental programs. Many of the questions are the same or similar to those found on the 1995 Property Owners and Managers Survey and the rental housing portion of the 2001 Residential Finance Survey. This survey does not duplicate work done in other existing HUD surveys or studies that are pertinent to mortgage finance of multifamily rental properties. Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff can use the survey’s results to advise executive and legislative branches about the mortgage finance characteristics of the multifamily rental housing stock in the United States and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations will also be able to utilize the data to facilitate their research and projects. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) needs the RHFS data for the following two reasons: 1. This is the only data source that provides a comprehensive picture of mortgage financing of the multifamily rental properties with two or more units. 2. With the data, HUD can gain a better understanding of mortgage E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 223 / Friday, November 19, 2010 / Notices origination volumes, loan and property characteristics associated with these originations, and operating cost and revenue characteristics for the multifamily rental housing stock in the United States.

L. 111– 117, approved December 16, 2009, 123 Stat. 3034) (2010 Appropriations Act), which appropriated fiscal year 2010 funds for HUD, among other agencies, appropriated $50 million for an Energy Innovation Fund to enable HUD to catalyze innovations in the residential energy efficiency sector that have the promise of replicability and help create a standardized home energy efficient retrofit market.

Lender participation in the Retrofit Pilot Program is voluntary. To facilitate HUD’s evaluation of lender performance and assessment of the success and replicability of the pilot program, HUD will select lenders to participate in the program.
