SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Nov 18, 2014 Jkt 235001 DATES: Title of Information Collection: Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Grant Application—Continuum of Care Registration. OMB Approval Number: 2506–0182. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Form Number: Not Applicable. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The regulatory authority to collect this information is contained in 24 CFR part 579, and the HEARTH Act. The CoC Homeless Assistance Application Registration (OMB 2506–0182) is the first part of the information collection process to be used in HUD’s annual competitive homeless assistance program, the CoC Program, authorized by the HEARTH Act. It is separate from the annual CoC Homeless Assistance Consolidated Application, which contains the CoC Application and the Project Applications that are covered under the approved PRA package 2506– 0112. This separation is necessary due in to the fact that the CoC Registration occurs several months before collection of the CoC Homeless Assistance Consolidated Application and that the PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68907 information collected during CoC Registration does not frequently change. The annual CoC Registration comprises the first phase of the combined CoC Homeless Assistance information collection form. During this phase, HUD collects the contact information of the collaborative applicant for the CoC, and the HMIS Lead Agency as well as the geographic areas served by the CoC applicant. Additionally, CoCs approve their preliminary pro-rata need and affirm their annual renewal demand, and HUD collects information regarding the CoC’s board structure and the capacity of the CoC to carry out the various activities outlined in the program regulations. The registration information is necessary to assist in the selection of project proposals submitted to HUD (by State and local governments, public housing authorities, and nonprofit organizations) for the awarded funds during the annual CoC competition because it provides vital information about the CoC applicants. All collaborative applicants are required to register their CoCs in the esnaps electronic grants management system prior to the opening of the CoC Homeless Assistance competition. The registration requirements include a basic description of the CoC’s lead organization, contact information, and geographic area. The information to be collected by HUD will be used to determine eligibility for CoC Homeless Assistance and establish grant amounts. To determine the total amount a CoC may request for renewal funding, collaborative applicants will list their Continuum’s programs on a Grant Inventory Worksheet (GIW) that will allow HUD to accurately assess individual project applications during the CoC Application process. The information from the GIW is essential for operation of the CoC competition. For the CoC, the GIW allows each CoC to see all the project grants side-by-side that will be eligible for competition in the annual competition. This then allows them to determine, in communication with HUD, the total amount of funding (the annual renewal demand or ARD) that their CoC has available in a given competition year, which then allows them to make informed planning decisions about which project grants they want to prioritize, reduce or eliminate in the actual CoC Homeless Assistance Program Application. In turn, the program details in the GIW allow HUD to conduct an accurate assessment of renewal project applications and to determine in the aggregate what the total renewal demand for all CoCs will E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
