Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Section 3 Business Registry Pilot Program Participant and Recipients Surveys. OMB Approval Number: 2529–0053. Type of Request: Extension without of a currently approved collection. Form Number: HUD–968, HUD–969. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information collection contains two surveys that will provide insights into the effectiveness of the Section 3 Business Registry and assess potential outcomes. This information may be useful to HUD for developing policies regarding the Section 3 Business Registry. This information collection will be limited to businesses that have self-certified their Section 3 eligibility to HUD and recipients of HUD funding (i.e., Public Housing Authorities and local government agencies). The surveys will be sent electronically to all certified businesses in the Section 3 Business Registry database and HUD funding recipients in an effort to produce the greatest amount of responses. Random sampling will not be used to identify potential respondents. Respondents will have a minimum of 60 days to respond to the surveys. Responding to these surveys is voluntary. Respondents (i.e. affected public): Businesses that are either owned by, or substantially employ, low- or very lowincome persons; low-income persons; developers; members of the general public; public housing agencies; and State and local governments. Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: At this time, there are approximately 800 businesses in the five pilot locations that have selfcertified their eligibility with HUD and 150 HUD-funding recipients in the five pilot areas may complete the Section 3 surveys. It is estimated that each survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete for a total of 475 hours. B.
