This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: StatutorilyMandated Collection of Information for Tenants in LIHTC Properties. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Section 2835(d) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, or HERA, (Pub. L. 110– 289, approved July 30, 2008) amends Title I of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437 et seq.) (1937 Act) to add a new section 36 (to be codified as 42 U.S.C. 1437z-8) that requires each state agency administering tax credits under section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (low-income housing tax credits or LIHTC) to furnish HUD, not less than annually, information concerning the race, ethnicity, family composition, age, income, use of rental assistance under section 8(o) of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 or other similar assistance, disability status, and monthly rental payments of households residing in each property receiving such credits through such agency. New section 36 requires HUD to establish standards and definitions for the information to be collected by state agencies and to provide states with technical assistance in establishing systems to compile and submit such information and, in coordination with other federal agencies administering housing programs, establish procedures to minimize duplicative reporting requirements for properties assisted under multiple housing programs. In 2010, OMB approved the first collection instrument used for the collection of LIHTC household information (OMB Approval No. 2528–0165, expiration date 05/31/2013). HUD used the previously approved form to collect data on LIHTC tenants in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Renewal of this form is required for HUD to remain in compliance with the statute. OMB Approval Number: 2528–0165. Agency form numbers: None. Members of Affected Public: There are sixty state and local housing finance agencies which allocate low-income housing tax credits and conduct program compliance. HERA directs these agencies to submit the requested data to HUD. PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: This data collection includes two forms, one requesting data on properties placed in service in a single calendar year and a second requesting data on all tenants in LIHTCsubsidized units, and will be conducted annually. HUD expects completion of the properties placed in service form to average approximately eight personhours per respondent. HUD expects completion of the tenant form to average approximately forty person-hours per respondent. In combination, the overall response burden totals 48 person-hours per respondent. The total estimated annual burden across all respondents for this data collection is 2,880 hours (60 respondents × 48 hours per respondent). Status of the proposed information collection: Pending OMB approval.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB Title of Proposal: Implementation of the Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995 (HOPA). Office: Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. OMB Control Number: 2529–0046. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Fair Housing Act [42 U.S.C. 3601 et seq.], prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, occupancy, advertising, insuring, or financing of residential dwellings based on familial status (individuals living in households with one or more children under 18 years of age). However, under § 3607(b)(2) of the Act, Congress exempted three (3) categories of ‘‘housing for older persons’’ from liability for familial status discrimination: (1) Housing provided under any State or Federal program which the Secretary of HUD determines is ‘‘specifically designed and operated to assist elderly persons (as defined in the State or Federal program)’’; (2) housing ‘‘intended for, and solely occupied by persons 62 years of age or older’’; and (3) housing ’’intended and operated for occupancy by at least one person 55 years of age or older per unit [‘55 or older’ housing]’’. In December 1995, Congress passed the Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995 (HOPA) [Public Law 104–76, 109 STAT. 787] as an amendment to the Fair Housing Act. The HOPA modified the ‘‘55 or older’’ housing exemption provided under § 3607(b)(2)(C) of the Fair Housing Act by eliminating the requirement that a housing provider must offer ‘‘significant facilities and services specifically designed to meet the physical or social needs of older persons.’’ In order to qualify for the HOPA exemption, a housing community or facility must meet each of the following criteria: (1) E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1
