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.

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.

Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Choice Neighborhoods Evaluation, Phase II. OMB Approval Number: 2528–New. Type of Request: New collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD is conducting an evaluation of the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, focused on PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52353 the initial round of grants funded in August 2011. This evaluation requires the collection of information from households living in the Choice Neighborhoods sites. Phase I, approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 2528– 0286, involved a baseline survey of households (http://www.reginfo.gov/ public/do/PRAViewICR?ref_ nbr=201203-2528-001). Phase II, proposed here, involves tracking baseline survey respondents. The purpose of Phase II tracking is to maintain contact and location information for households that participated in the Choice Neighborhoods Demonstration Studies’ Baseline Survey to analyze household mobility patterns and achieve a strong response rate on any follow up surveys that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) may conduct. The tracking effort relies primarily on passive tracking strategies that use data obtained from HUD’s PIC and TRACS systems, Choice Grantees, National Change of Address (NCOA) Database, and Accurint, to update the contact information for households. Active tracking strategies are used to complement passive strategies. Respondents (i.e. affected public): This information collection will affect approximately 1,697 households that participated in the Choice Neighborhoods Demonstration Studies’ Baseline Survey in 2013–14 in five cities—New Orleans, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, and San Francisco. Affected households include residents of HUDassisted properties targeted by the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative as well as residents in the neighborhoods surrounding those properties. The respondents have all agreed to participate in the study. There are five active tracking strategies that will directly affect Panel members: 1. Three quarters each year, panel members will receive a card/flyer with a toll-free number and Web site address set up for this study that will give respondents the opportunity to update their contact information online or by phone. We estimate that 25 percent of respondents (424) will respond to this flyer and it will take at most 5 minutes. This activity is estimated to result in 424 responses, 101.76 hours, and $1,387 of burden per year. 2. Once a year, the flyer/card will also contain a perforated mailer and a postage-paid business reply envelope, providing more opportunity for each panel member to update their contact information. We estimate that 90 E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1
