Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Public Housing lease and grievance procedures are a recordkeeping requirement on the part of Public Housing agencies (PHAs) as they are required to enter into and maintain lease agreements for each individual or family that occupies a Public Housing unit. Also, both PHAs and tenants are required to follow the protocols set forth in the grievance procedures for both an informal and formal grievance hearing. This information collection is a revision of the previous submission. The reduction in burden hours is attributable to a fewer number of tenants in public housing covered by these lease and grievance procedures.

The Initiative’s goal is to increase access to capital for affordable housing, business lending and community facilities in the chronically underserved and undercapitalized U.S./Mexico border region. Specifically, it will provide direct investment and technical assistance to community development lending and investing institutions that focus on affordable housing, small business and community facilities to benefit the residents of colonias. HUD, USDA–RD and the CDFI Fund have all identified lack of capacity among organizations serving the colonias and similar persistent poverty communities as a limiting factor in the effectiveness of federal programs. Inconsistent availability of limited public funding in any one region or community plays a role in this, because organizations specializing in affordable housing, small business support and community facilities cannot sustain themselves and grow.

Conversely, highercapacity organizations working along the border consistently cite lack of access to capital as a major barrier to expansion. The Border Initiative focuses on improving colonias communities and creating asset building opportunities for colonias residents by helping local financial institutions improve their capacity to raise capital, and to lend and invest it in their communities.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Border Community Capital 
Initiative.
    OMB Approval Number: 2506-0196.
    Type of Request: Extension of Collection.

    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
Border Community Capital Initiative (``Border Initiative'') is a 
collaborative effort among three federal agencies--the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of the Treasury--
Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) and the 
Department of Agriculture--Rural Development (USDA-RD). The 
Initiative's goal is to increase access to capital for affordable 
housing, business lending and community facilities in the chronically 
underserved and undercapitalized U.S./Mexico border region. 
Specifically, it will provide direct investment and technical 
assistance to community development lending and investing institutions 
that focus on affordable housing, small business and community 
facilities to benefit the residents of colonias.
    HUD, USDA-RD and the CDFI Fund have all identified lack of capacity 
among organizations serving the colonias and similar persistent poverty 
communities as a limiting factor in the effectiveness of federal 
programs. Inconsistent availability of limited public funding in any 
one region or community plays a role in this, because organizations 
specializing in affordable housing, small business support and 
community facilities cannot sustain themselves and grow. All of the 
agencies recognize that the targeted border communities and populations 
receive insufficient services because they lack organizations with the 
capacity to effectively respond to community needs. Conversely, higher-
capacity organizations working along the border consistently cite lack 
of access to capital as a major barrier to expansion.
    The Border Initiative focuses on improving colonias communities and 
creating asset building opportunities for colonias residents by helping 
local financial institutions improve their capacity to raise capital, 
and to lend and invest it in their communities. Strengthening local 
community development lenders and investors will also widen the 
channels through which larger private institutions and federal agencies 
can reach potential home owners, renters, business owners, facilities 
operators and service providers who need their support.
