    Estimation of the Total Numbers of Hours Needed to Prepare the

    HUD estimates that each applicant spends approximately 41.25 
person-hours to complete an application. Almost all of this time is 
invested by a researcher, expert, analyst. HUD estimates the mean 
hourly rate at $30. For 10 applications, the computation is as follows: 
10 applications x 41.25 hours x $30 per hours = $12,375.

(2) Post-Award:

    HUD estimates that each grantee will spend approximately 6 hours a 
year maintaining records. HUD also estimates that each grantee will 
spend approximately 4 hours a year preparing monitoring reports. 
Clerical staff and faculty/supervisory staff will share this burden. 
HUD estimates the applicable hourly rate at $15. The computation is as 
follow: 2 grantees x 10 hours x $15 an hour = $300.
