Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Rent Reform Demonstration (Task Order 1). OMB Approval Number: 2528–New. Type of Request: New collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Department is conducting this study under contract with MDRC and its subcontractors (Branch Associates, The Bronner Group, Quadel Consulting Corporation, and the Urban Institute). The project is a random assignment trial of an alternative rent system. Families will be randomly assigned to either participate in the new/alternative rent system or to continue in the current system. For voucher holders, outcomes of the alternative system are hypothesized to be increases in earnings, employment and job retention, among others. Random assignment will limit the extent to which selection bias drives observed results. The demonstration will document the progress of a group of housing voucher holders, who will be drawn from current residents. The intent is to gain VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:40 Sep 02, 2014 Jkt 232001 an understanding of the impact of the alternative rent system on the families as well as the administrative burden on Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). PHAs currently participating in the Moving to Work (MtW) Demonstration are being recruited to participate in the demonstration. Data collection will include the families that are part of the treatment and control groups, as well as PHA staff. Data for this evaluation will be gathered through a variety of methods including informational interviews, direct observation, surveys, and analysis of administrative records. The work covered under this information request is for the baseline survey. Work funded by subsequent task orders will be covered under a separate information collection request. B.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This information collection is necessary to determine applicant eligibility to receive mortgage relief assistance under the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program. This Notice informs the public that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to OMB, an information collection package with respect to implementing the Emergency Homeowners’ Loan Program targeted to borrowers facing foreclosure. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111–203, approved July 21, 2010, Sec 1496) appropriated $1billion to HUD to establish an Emergency Homeowner’s Relief Fund, pursuant to section 107 of the Emergency Housing Act of 1975, that will provide emergency mortgage assistance to homeowners that are at risk of foreclosure due to involuntary unemployment or underemployment due to an adverse economic or medical condition. Accordingly, HUD is implementing the Emergency Homeowners Loan Program (EHLP) that is designed to offer a declining balance, deferred payment ‘‘bridge loan’’ (nonrecourse, subordinate loan with zero interest) for up to $50,000 to assist eligible homeowners with payments of arrearages, including delinquent taxes and insurance. Additionally, EHLP may be used to assist eligible homeowners with up to 24 months of monthly payments on their mortgage principal, interest, mortgage insurance premiums, taxes, and hazard insurance. Assistance will not exceed $50,000 per eligible homeowner. HUD will use two approaches to implement EHLP: (1) Provide allocations to States that currently have substantially similar programs to administer their mortgage relief funds directly; and (2) delegate key administrative functions to third party entities that will assist HUD with program implementation. The third party entities will be primarily E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1
