Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection. Form Number: SF–424 Application for Federal Assistance. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting (DRGR) System is a grants management system used by the Office of Community Planning and Development to monitor special appropriation grants under the Community Development Block Grant program. This collection pertains to Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG–DR), Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), Rural Capacity Building (RCB) for Community Development, and Affordable Housing Capacity Building for Affordable Housing and Community Development Program (Section 4 program) grant appropriations. The CDBG program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. Following major disasters, Congress appropriates supplemental CDBG funds for disaster recovery. According to Section 104(e)(1) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, HUD is responsible for reviewing grantees’ compliance with applicable requirements and their continuing capacity to carry out their programs. Grant funds are made available to states and units of general local government, Indian tribes, and insular areas, unless provided otherwise by supplemental appropriations statute, based on their unmet disaster recovery needs. The Rural Capacity Building (RCB) Program enhances the capacity and ability of local governments, Indian tribes, housing development organizations, rural Community Number of respondents Information collection Frequency of response Responses per annum Development Corporations (CDCs), and rural Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs), to carry out community development and affordable housing activities that benefit low- and moderate-income families and persons in rural areas. The original authorizing statute for the RCB program is the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112–55. The Capacity Building for Affordable Housing and Community Development Program, also known as the Section 4 program, was originally authorized under Section 4 of the HUD Demonstration Act of 1993 (Pub. L. 103– 120, 107 Stat. 1148, 42 U.S.C. 9816 note), as amended. The program enhances the capacity and ability of community development corporations (CDCs) and community housing development organizations (CHDOs) to carry out community development and affordable housing activities that benefit low-income persons. Respondents: DRGR is used to monitor CDBG–DR, NSP, NSP–TA, RCB and Section 4 grants, as well as several programs that do not fall under the Office of Block Grant Assistance. Separate information collections have been submitted and approved for these programs. CDBG–DR and NSP grant funds are made available to states and units of general local government, Indian tribes, and insular areas, unless provided otherwise by supplemental appropriations statute. NSP–TA grant funds are awarded on a competitive basis and are open to state and local governments, as well as non-profit groups and consortia that may include for-profit entities. RCB grants are competitively awarded to local governments, Indian tribes, housing development organizations, rural Community Development Corporations (CDCs), and rural Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs). Section 4 grant funds are directly awarded to grantees designated in the authorizing statute and subsequent appropriations.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting 
System.
    OMB Approval Number: 2506-0165.
    Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection.
    Form Number: SF-424 Application for Federal Assistance.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: 
Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting (DRGR) System is a grants management 
system used by the Office of Community Planning and Development to 
monitor special appropriation grants under the Community Development 
Block Grant program. This collection pertains to Community Development 
Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR), Neighborhood Stabilization 
Program (NSP), Rural Capacity Building (RCB) for Community Development, 
and Affordable Housing Capacity Building for Affordable Housing and 
Community Development Program (Section 4 program) grant appropriations.
    The CDBG program is authorized under Title I of the Housing and 
Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. Following major 
disasters, Congress appropriates supplemental CDBG funds for disaster 
recovery. According to Section 104(e)(1) of the Housing and Community 
Development Act of 1974, HUD is responsible for reviewing grantees' 
compliance with applicable requirements and their continuing capacity 
to carry out their programs. Grant funds are made available to states 
and units of general local government, Indian tribes, and insular 
areas, unless provided otherwise by supplemental appropriations 
statute, based on their unmet disaster recovery needs.
    The Rural Capacity Building (RCB) Program enhances the capacity and 
ability of local governments, Indian tribes, housing development 
organizations, rural Community Development Corporations (CDCs), and 
rural Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs), to carry out 
community development and affordable housing activities that benefit 
low- and moderate-income families and persons in rural areas. The 
original authorizing statute for the RCB program is the Consolidated 
and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112-55.
    The Capacity Building for Affordable Housing and Community 
Development Program, also known as the Section 4 program, was 
originally authorized under Section 4 of the HUD Demonstration Act of 
1993 (Pub. L. 103-120, 107 Stat. 1148, 42 U.S.C. 9816 note), as 
amended. The program enhances the capacity and ability of community 
development corporations (CDCs) and community housing development 
organizations (CHDOs) to carry out community development and affordable 
housing activities that benefit low-income persons.
    Respondents: DRGR is used to monitor CDBG-DR, NSP, NSP-TA, RCB and 
Section 4 grants, as well as several programs that do not fall under 
the Office of Block Grant Assistance. Separate information collections 
have been submitted and approved for these programs. CDBG-DR and NSP 
grant funds are made available to states and units of general local 
government, Indian tribes, and insular areas, unless provided otherwise 
by supplemental appropriations statute. NSP-TA grant funds are awarded 
on a competitive basis and are open to state and local governments, as 
well as non-profit groups and consortia that may include for-profit 
entities. RCB grants are competitively awarded to local governments, 
Indian tribes, housing development organizations, rural Community 
Development Corporations (CDCs), and rural Community Housing 
Development Organizations (CHDOs). Section 4 grant funds are directly 
awarded to grantees designated in the authorizing statute and 
subsequent appropriations.
