PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB Approval Number: 2506–0133. 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 reporting, recording keeping, and application requirements for both the HOPWA formula and competitive grant programs. This revision applies to reporting requirements for all HOPWA grantees. For annual reporting, HOPWA grantees complete reporting forms by providing information on activities undertaken, number of clients served, funds expended, and accomplishments achieved. This information supports program evaluation and the ability to measure program beneficiary outcomes related to: maintaining housing stability; preventing homelessness; and improving access to care and support. Grantees are required to report on the activities undertaken only, thus there may be components of these reporting requirements that may not be applicable to every grantee. The data elements in this submission represent the new annual reporting requirements for both HOPWA formula and competitive grantees, and represent a consolidation of the data elements in HUD–40110–C and HUD–40110–D. Compared to the HUD–40110–C and HUD–40110–D, the data elements in this submission represent data additions, deletions, and modifications that further clarify reporting requirements. The addition of new data elements will allow OHH to better respond to data calls from Congress and to make better programmatic decisions based on more relevant grantee annual data. HUD systematically reviews and conducts data analysis in order to prepare national and individual grantee performance profiles that are not only used to measure program performance against benchmark goals and objectives, but also to communicate the program’s achievement and contributions towards E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1 68913 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 211 / Friday, October 30, 2020 / Notices Departmental strategic goals.
