Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Manufactured Housing Survey. OMB Approval Number: 2528–0029. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. Form Number: C–MH–9A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Manufactured Housing Survey collects data on new manufactured homes that are sold or leased for residential use. The survey tracks shipments of manufactured homes to dealers and the sales price and characteristics of sampled units. Beginning in fiscal year 2015, dealers are contacted once to obtain sales price and characteristics of the unit. If the unit has been placed by the time Census contacts the dealer, additional placement data are collected. Other selected housing characteristics collected include size, location, and titling. HUD uses the statistics to respond to a Congressional mandate in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. 5424 note, which requires HUD to collect and report manufactured home sales and price information for the nation, census regions, states, and selected metropolitan areas and to monitor whether new manufactured homes are being placed on owned rather than rented lots. HUD also uses these data to monitor total housing production and its affordability. Furthermore, the Manufactured Housing Survey serves as the basis for HUD’s mandated indexing of loan limits. Section 2145 (b) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008 requires HUD to develop a method of indexing to annually adjust Title I manufactured home loan limits. This index is based on manufactured housing price data collected by this survey. Section 2145 of the HERA of 2008 also amends the maximum loan limits for manufactured home loans insured under Title I. HUD implemented the revised loan limits, as shown below, for all manufactured home loans for which E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1 9213 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 36 / Wednesday, February 24, 2016 / Notices Estimated Number of Responses: 4,860.
