B. Burden Estimates

    FHFA estimates the total annualized hour burden imposed upon 
respondents by this information collection to be 318 hours (14 hours

the following calculations:

I. Applicants

    FHFA estimates that the total annual average number of entities 
applying to be certified as a Housing Associate over the next three 
years will be one, with one response per applicant. The estimate for 
the average hours per application is 14 hours. Therefore, the estimate 
for the total annual hour burden for all applicants is 14 hours (1 
applicant x 1 response per applicant x 14 hours = 14 hours).

II. Current Housing Associates

Housing Associates over the next three years will be 76, with one
