SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When did the Secretary extend the TPS designation for Haiti? On October 1, 2012, the Secretary extended the TPS designation for Haiti for a period of 18 months by notice in the Federal Register. See 77 FR 59943. The extension is effective from January 23, 2013 through July 22, 2014. Why is the Secretary extending the reregistration period for Haitian TPS beneficiaries? Due to the disruptive effects of Hurricane Sandy across the Northeastern region of the United States, DHS is extending the reregistration period through January 29, 2013. DHS recognizes that Haitian TPS beneficiaries affected by the hurricane may require additional time to prepare a re-registration application and to gather either the funds to cover the reregistration fees or the documentation to support a fee waiver request.

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.
