Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The current Paperwork Reduction Act approval under OMB Control No. 2506– 0133 covers both the HOPWA formula and competitive grant programs. The competitive grant program includes new competitive grants and renewal grants. This revision would only apply to reporting requirements for new competitive Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) grants. The current approval covers reporting for new competitive SPNS grants through HUD–40110–C, the HOPWA Annual Performance Report (APR). This submission requests to add four data elements to be reported annually through the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model Report to be submitted annually and the Housing as an Intervention to Fight AIDS (HIFA) report to be submitted at the end of the grant period of performance. The additional reporting will allow HOPWA to share lessons learned and promising practices with the public, and uphold the purpose of SPNS grants to be replicable in other similar localities or nationally. The data elements in the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model Report follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) definitions for the HIV Care Continuum and will allow SPNS grantees to collect standardized project data that can be used to compare outcomes with other projects. The HIV Housing Care Continuum Model report will require grantees to collect four client-level data elements for each person with diagnosed HIV receiving HOPWA assistance by type of assistance received through this NOFA. The data elements include: 1. Receipt of Care. Receipt of care is measured as a person with diagnosed HIV receiving HOPWA assistance under this NOFA who had at least one CD4 or viral load test during the operating year. 2. Retained in Care. Retained in care is measured as a person with diagnosed HIV receiving HOPWA assistance under this NOFA who had two or more CD4 or viral load tests, performed at least three months apart during the operating year. E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1 16644 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 57 / Tuesday, March 24, 2020 / Notices 3. Viral Suppression. Viral suppression is measured as a person with diagnosed HIV receiving HOPWA assistance under this NOFA who had a viral load test result of <200 copies/mL at the most recent viral load test during the operating year. 4. Type of HOPWA assistance received. The type of HOPWA assistance received by the person with diagnosed HIV includes any HOPWA assistance for housing or supportive services funded through this NOFA. This data element will provide the denominator for the variety of HIV Housing Care Continuums created through the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model Report. Grantees will be required to separately report receipt of care, retained in care, and viral suppression for persons with diagnosed HIV receiving the following categories of type of HOPWA assistance under this NOFA: Any eligible HOPWA assistance; Housing assistance only; Supportive Services only; Both Housing assistance and Supportive Services; Tenant-based Rental Assistance (TBRA) and Master Leasing only; TBRA, Master Leasing, and Supportive Services; Facility-based Housing only; Facility-based Housing and Supportive Services; Short-term Rent, Mortgage, and Utilities (STRMU) only; STRMU and Supportive Services; Other Housing Activities only; and Other Housing Activities and Supportive Services. Each annual submission of the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model report will cover only the data from the program year covered. The client-level data elements should be collected at minimum annually and at the following times: Client Intake, HOPWA Assistance Ends, Type of HOPWA Assistance Changes, or Recertification for HOPWA Assistance.

    Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
    Form Number: HUD-40110-B, HUD-40110-C, HUD-40110-D, SF-424, SF-LLL, 
and HUD-2991.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
current Paperwork Reduction Act approval under OMB Control No. 2506-
0133 covers both the HOPWA formula and competitive grant programs. The 
competitive grant program includes new competitive grants and renewal 
grants. This revision would only apply to reporting requirements for

grants.
    The current approval covers reporting for new competitive SPNS 
grants through HUD-40110-C, the HOPWA Annual Performance Report (APR). 
This submission requests to add four data elements to be reported 
annually through the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model Report to be 
submitted annually and the Housing as an Intervention to Fight AIDS 
(HIFA) report to be submitted at the end of the grant period of 
performance. The additional reporting will allow HOPWA to share lessons 
learned and promising practices with the public, and uphold the purpose 
of SPNS grants to be replicable in other similar localities or 
nationally.
    The data elements in the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model Report 
follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) definitions for the HIV Care 
Continuum and will allow SPNS grantees to collect standardized project 
data that can be used to compare outcomes with other projects. The HIV

test during the operating year.
    4. Type of HOPWA assistance received. The type of HOPWA assistance 
received by the person with diagnosed HIV includes any HOPWA assistance 
for housing or supportive services funded through this NOFA. This data 
element will provide the denominator for the variety of HIV Housing 
Care Continuums created through the HIV Housing Care Continuum Model 
Report. Grantees will be required to separately report receipt of care, 
retained in care, and viral suppression for persons with diagnosed HIV 
receiving the following categories of type of HOPWA assistance under 
this NOFA: Any eligible HOPWA assistance; Housing assistance only; 
Supportive Services only; Both Housing assistance and Supportive 
Services; Tenant-based Rental Assistance (TBRA) and Master Leasing

grant period; successes and challenges in using housing as a structural 
intervention to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic; client outcomes related to 
health and housing stability including a summary of HIV Housing Care 
Continuum results and, if applicable, employment and income growth. 
Health outcome measures will include eligible program beneficiary CD4 
count, viral load, and perceived health. This data will be provided in 
the aggregate. Each HIFA Model will be shared with the public, and 
lessons learned through these grantee efforts will help inform national 
and community policy and actions.

    Renewal grants are awarded for a three-year operating period. 
Currently, there are 82 eligible renewal grantees. The number of 
respondents listed for HOPWA renewal applications represents one-third 
of the renewal grantees, or the estimated number of grantees projected 
to renew HOPWA grants each year. The number of respondents listed for 
HOPWA competitive applications represents the number of respondents 
expected to submit an application. Form HUD-40110-C, the APR is 
submitted by all renewal and competitive grantees on an annual basis. 
The number of respondents for the APR include 82 renewal grantees, 
eight (8) current HOPWA competitive grantees, and 26 expected new 
competitive SPNS grantees.
    HOPWA grantees and applicants may be required to respond to more 
than one piece of information collection. The total number of 
respondents include: 82 renewal grantees, eight (8) current HOPWA 
competitive grantees, 26 expected new competitive SPNS grantees, 40 
potential competitive applicants, and 128 current HOPWA formula 
grantees. The total of 638 total annual responses captures each unique 
response from the 284 respondents. All annualized costs reflect staff 
time spent on tasks in the table. The hourly rate is based on a GS-9 
for Rest of United States. 30,228 hours * $25.44 = $769,000.32.
