Section 516 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998

Housing Mortgages and Security Interest, to the United States Housing 
Act of 1937 (1937 Act) (42 U.S.C. 1437z-2). Section 30 authorizes the

approve a Housing Authority's (HA) request to mortgage public housing 
real property or grant a security interest in other tangible forms of 
personal property if the proceeds of the loan resulting from the 
mortgage or security interest are used for low-income housing uses.
    Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) must provide information to HUD for 
approval to allow PHAs to grant a mortgage in public housing real 
estate or a security interest in some tangible form of personal 
property owned by the PHA for the purposes of securing loans or other 
financing for modernization or development of low-income housing. The 
title of the information collection has been changed to be more clearly 
descriptive of the range of transactions that would be reviewed under 
this collection for compliance with Section 30. There are several 
circumstances other than a mixed finance transaction that would 
potentially trigger this collection. For example, most recently Energy 
Performance Contract (EPC) transactions that provide for a security 
interest in energy improvements have been reviewed for approval under 
Section 30.
    Agency Form Numbers, if Applicable: N/A.
    Members of Affected Public: Business or other for-profit, State, 
Local Government.
    Estimation of the Total Number of Hours Needed To Prepare the

    Status of the Proposed Information Collection: This is a revision 
of a currently approved request for collection.
