HUD is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the information collection described below. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, HUD is requesting comment from all interested parties on the proposed collection of information. The purpose of this notice is to allow for 30 days of public comment. SUMMARY: DATES: Comments Due Date: April 19, 2019. Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding this proposal. Comments should refer to the proposal by name and/or OMB Control Number and should be sent to: HUD Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; fax: 202–395–5806, Email: OIRA Submission@omb.eop.gov.

Copies of available documents ADDRESSES: Information Collection Number of respondents A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Manufactured Housing Survey. OMB Approval Number: 2528–0029. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Form Number: Form—C–MH–9A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Manufactured Housing Survey collects data on the characteristics of newly manufactured homes placed for residential use. Key data collected includes sales price and the number of units placed and sold within 4 months of shipment. 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 Frequency of response Responses per annum Burden hour per response selected metropolitan areas and to monitor whether new manufactured homes are being placed on owned rather than rented lots. HUD also used 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 applications are received on or after March 3, 2009. Method of Collection: The methodology for collecting information on new manufactured homes involves contacting dealers from a monthly sample of new manufactured homes shipped by manufacturers. The units are sampled from lists obtained from the Institute for Building Technology and Safety. Dealers that take shipment of the selected homes are mailed a survey form four months after shipment for recording the status of the manufactured home.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A. The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at 83 FR 45955. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: 2019 American Housing Survey. OMB Approval Number: 2528–0017. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The purpose of the American Housing Survey (AHS) is to supply the public with detailed and timely information about housing quality, housing costs, and neighborhood assets, in support of effective housing policy, programs, and markets. Title 12, United States Code, Sections 1701Z–1, 1701Z–2(g), and 1710Z–10a mandates the collection of this information. Like the previous surveys, the 2019 AHS will collect ‘‘core’’ data on subjects, such as the amount and types of changes in the housing inventory, the physical condition of the housing inventory, the characteristics of the occupants, housing costs for owners and renters, the persons eligible for and beneficiaries of assisted housing, remodeling and repair frequency, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Mar 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 reasons for moving, the number and characteristics of vacancies, and characteristics of resident’s neighborhood. In addition to the ‘‘core’’ data, HUD plans to collect supplemental data on post-secondary education, modifications made to assist occupants living with disabilities, and information on people’s concerns regarding the availability and affordability of food. The AHS national longitudinal sample consists of approximately 85,200 housing units, and includes oversample from the largest 15 metropolitan areas, and approximately 5,200 HUD-assisted housing units. In addition to the national longitudinal sample, HUD plans to conduct 10 additional metropolitan area longitudinal samples, each with approximately 3,000 housing units (for a total 30,000 metropolitan area housing units). The 10 additional metropolitan area longitudinal samples were last surveyed in 2015. To help reduce respondent burden on households in the longitudinal sample, the 2019 AHS will make use of dependent interviewing techniques, which will decrease the number of questions asked. Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff use AHS data to advise executive and legislative branches about housing conditions and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations also use AHS data in efforts of specific interest and concern to their respective communities. HUD needs the AHS data for two important uses. 1. With the data, policy analysts can monitor the interaction among housing needs, demand and supply, as well as changes in housing conditions and costs, to aid in the development of housing policies and the design of housing programs appropriate for different target groups, such as first-time home buyers and the elderly. 2. With the data, HUD can evaluate, monitor, and design HUD programs to improve efficiency and effectiveness. In addition to the core 2019 AHS, HUD plans to collect supplemental data on housing insecurity in a follow-on survey to the AHS. Housing insecurity is defined as a significant lapse for a given household of one or more elements of secure housing. These elements include affordability, stable occupancy, and whether the housing is decent and safe. ‘‘Affordability’’ implies that shelter costs are manageable over the long term without severely burdening or compromising other consumption that normally is essential for health and well-being. The second PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10321 element, ‘‘stable occupancy’’, implies that the household does not face substantial risk of involuntary displacement for economic or noneconomic reasons. The final element, ‘‘decent and safe’’, implies that a unit has physical attributes that satisfy functional needs for well-being related to health, security, and support for activities of daily living. Such attributes include appropriate facilities for excluding external threats, providing climate control, storing and preparing food, maintaining physical and mental hygiene, and developing human potential. Not included are aspects of the neighborhood or environment that one encounters beyond the confines of the structure or property. HUD plans to conduct the Housing Insecurity Follow-On survey concurrently with the 2019 AHS. Respondents who meet certain criteria based on their responses to the 2019 AHS will be recruited at the end of the production questionnaire and offered an incentive of $40 to participate. Of the respondents who agree to participate in the follow-on survey, a total of 4,000 responses will be collected via telephone. Once the follow-on interview has been completed, respondents will receive the incentive for their participation. Data collected from this follow-on survey will be used for research and scale development purposes. HUD needs the AHS Housing Insecurity Follow-On data for two important uses. With the data: 1. HUD can evaluate the feasibility of collecting data on housing insecurity and better define housing insecurity. 2. HUD can measure the quality of the questions asked regarding housing insecurity and develop a composite housing insecurity scale. HUD intends to test the use of incentives to reduce non-response bias in the AHS. The proposed incentive project will test whether offering incentives in geographic areas with a high risk of non-response can successfully increase responses from communities that would otherwise be underrepresented, resulting in lower non-response bias. Conditions will be compared to determine sensitivity to the amount of the incentive in motivating response compared to a no-incentive control. The incentive project will address the following research questions: 1. Can incentives reduce nonresponse bias in the AHS? 2. Where is the inflection point for diminishing marginal returns for monetary incentives? E:\FR\FM\20MRN1.SGM 20MRN1 10322 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 54 / Wednesday, March 20, 2019 / Notices 3.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: 2019 American Housing Survey.
    OMB Approval Number: 2528-0017.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Form Number: None.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
purpose of the American Housing Survey (AHS) is to supply the public 
with detailed and timely information about housing quality, housing 
costs, and neighborhood assets, in support of effective housing policy, 
programs, and markets. Title 12, United States Code, Sections 1701Z-1, 
1701Z-2(g), and 1710Z-10a mandates the collection of this information.
    Like the previous surveys, the 2019 AHS will collect ``core'' data 
on subjects, such as the amount and types of changes in the housing 
inventory, the physical condition of the housing inventory, the 
characteristics of the occupants, housing costs for owners and renters, 
the persons eligible for and beneficiaries of assisted housing, 
remodeling and repair frequency, reasons for moving, the number and 
characteristics of vacancies, and characteristics of resident's 
neighborhood. In addition to the ``core'' data, HUD plans to collect 
supplemental data on post-secondary education, modifications made to 
assist occupants living with disabilities, and information on people's 
concerns regarding the availability and affordability of food.
    The AHS national longitudinal sample consists of approximately 
85,200 housing units, and includes oversample from the largest 15 
metropolitan areas, and approximately 5,200 HUD-assisted housing units. 
In addition to the national longitudinal sample, HUD plans to conduct 
10 additional metropolitan area longitudinal samples, each with 
approximately 3,000 housing units (for a total 30,000 metropolitan area 
housing units). The 10 additional metropolitan area longitudinal 
samples were last surveyed in 2015.
    To help reduce respondent burden on households in the longitudinal 
sample, the 2019 AHS will make use of dependent interviewing 
techniques, which will decrease the number of questions asked. Policy 
analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff 
use AHS data to advise executive and legislative branches about housing 
conditions and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic 
researchers and private organizations also use AHS data in efforts of 
specific interest and concern to their respective communities.
    HUD needs the AHS data for two important uses.

housing needs, demand and supply, as well as changes in housing 
conditions and costs, to aid in the development of housing policies and 
the design of housing programs appropriate for different target groups, 
such as first-time home buyers and the elderly.
    2. With the data, HUD can evaluate, monitor, and design HUD 
programs to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
    In addition to the core 2019 AHS, HUD plans to collect supplemental 
data on housing insecurity in a follow-on survey to the AHS. Housing 
insecurity is defined as a significant lapse for a given household of 
one or more elements of secure housing. These elements include 
affordability, stable occupancy, and whether the housing is decent and 
safe. ``Affordability'' implies that shelter costs are manageable over 
the long term without severely burdening or compromising other 
consumption that normally is essential for health and well-being. The 
second element, ``stable occupancy'', implies that the household does 
not face substantial risk of involuntary displacement for economic or 
non-economic reasons. The final element, ``decent and safe'', implies 
that a unit has physical attributes that satisfy functional needs for 
well-being related to health, security, and support for activities of 
daily living. Such attributes include appropriate facilities for 
excluding external threats, providing climate control, storing and
