30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: 2018 Rental Housing Finance Survey (RHFS), 60757-60758 [2017-27626]

Download as PDF 60757 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 245 / Friday, December 22, 2017 / Notices CFR 214.2(w)(1)(v). When a beneficiary is granted CW–1 status, the adjudicating officer is granting admission and status to the beneficiary without requiring the beneficiary to depart the CNMI, obtain a visa abroad, and seek admission with CBP. Because we are granting the CW– 1 status to the beneficiary, we use biometrics to make a determination of admissibility prior to adjudicating the Form I–129CW petition. The checks are used to confirm identity and ensure that CW–1 status is not granted to anyone who is inadmissible. As the CW program progresses, the need to take biometrics in most cases has diminished, as the Form I–129CW is increasingly used for extension of status of persons who had already had their biometrics taken at the initial grant stage rather than for initial grants of status in the CNMI, but the authority will continue to be used in those initial grant cases that do arise. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: The estimated total number of respondents for the information collection Form I–129CW is 3,749 and the estimated hour burden per response is 3 hours. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total estimated annual hour burden associated with this collection is 11,247 hours. (7) An estimate of the total public burden (in cost) associated with the collection: The estimated total annual cost burden associated with this collection of information is $459,252.50.

Agency Form Numbers: No agency forms will be used.

RHFS focuses on Frequency of response 10,000.00 Jkt 244001 Notice. 1.00 PO 00000 Frm 00062 Responses per annum Burden hour per response 10,000.00 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1.00 mortgage financing of rental housing properties, with emphasis on new originations for purchase-money mortgages and refinancing, and the characteristics of these new originations. The RHFS will collect data on property values of residential structures, characteristics of residential structures, rental status and rental value of units within the residential structures, commercial use of space within residential structures, property management status, ownership status, a detailed assessment of mortgage financing, and benefits received from Federal, state, local, and nongovernmental programs. Many of the questions are the same or similar to those found on the 1995 Property Owners and Managers Survey, the rental housing portion of the 2001 Residential Finance Survey, the 2012 Rental Housing Finance Survey, and the 2015 Rental Housing Finance Survey. This survey does not duplicate work done in other existent HUD surveys or studies that deal with rental units financing. Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff can use the survey’s results to advise executive and legislative branches about the mortgage finance characteristics of the rental housing stock in the United States and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations will also be able to utilize the data to facilitate their research and projects. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) needs the RHFS data for the following two reasons: 1. This is the only source of information on the rental housing finance characteristics of rental properties. 2. HUD needs this information to gain a better understanding of the mortgage finance characteristics of the rental housing stock in the United States to evaluate, monitor, and design HUD programs.
