TSA uses the information to conduct STAs of persons on these flights to protect against and mitigate threats to transportation or national security. TSA collects information from applicants applying for a waiver or flight authorization either online via https://waivers.faa.gov, or by completing a waiver or flight authorization form, which can be requested via facsimile. To ensure adequate time to process the information and obtain approval, TSA recommends that applicants submit the request electronically within five business days before the start-date of the flight. The type of information collected depends upon the purpose of the application. Both waiver and flight authorization requests must include the purpose of the flight, the aircraft type and registration number, including aircraft operator’s company name and address, and the proposed itinerary. When applying for a waiver, the aircraft operator must submit the above information about the flight and provide the names, dates and places of birth, and Social Security or passport numbers for all passengers and crew on board the flight for TSA to perform a STA on each individual. Likewise, to obtain a flight authorization, the aircraft operator must submit the same information as for when applying for waiver on all passengers and flight crews, and as well as for armed security officers on board each flight for TSA to perform a namebased STA on each individual. The information collected about passengers, crew, and armed security officers, as applicable, must include names, dates and places of birth, and Social Security or passport numbers. The estimated number of respondents is 8,801, and the annual reporting burden is 6,785 hours. Dated: September 15, 2021. Christina A.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: 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: October 20, 2021. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:49 Sep 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 ADDRESSES: Title of Information Collection: HOME Investment Partnerships Program. OMB Approval Number: 2506–0171. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The information collected through HUD’s Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS) (24 CFR 92.502) is used by HUD Field Offices, HUD Headquarters, and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) Participating Jurisdictions (PJs). The project-specific property, tenant, owner, and financial data is used to compile annual reports to Congress required at Section 284(b) of Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12721 et seq.) (the Act) as well as to make program management PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 decisions about how well PJs are achieving the statutory objectives of the HOME Program. Program management reports are generated by IDIS to provide data on the status of PJs’ HOME grants and projects including the commitment and disbursement of HOME funds. These reports are provided to HUD staff as well as to HOME PJs. Management reports required in conjunction with the Annual Performance Report (24 CFR 92.509) are used by HUD Field Offices to assess the effectiveness of locally designed programs in meeting specific statutory requirements and by Headquarters in preparing the Annual Report to Congress. Specifically, these reports permit HUD to determine compliance with the requirement that PJs provide a 25 percent match for HOME funds expended during the Federal fiscal year (Section 220 of the Act) and that program income be used for HOME eligible activities (Section 219 of the Act), as well as the Women and Minority Business Enterprise requirements (24 CFR 92.351(b)). Financial, project, tenant and owner documentation are used to determine compliance with HOME Program cost limits (Section 212(e) of the Act), eligible activities (24 CFR 92.205), and eligible costs (24 CFR 92.206), as well as to determine whether PJs are complying with the income targeting and affordability requirements of the Act (Sections 214 and 215 of the Act). Other information collected under Subpart H of Part 92 (Other Federal Requirements) is primarily intended for local program management and is only viewed by HUD during routine monitoring visits. The written agreement with the owner for long-term obligation (24 CFR 92.504) and tenant protections (24 CFR 92.253) are required to ensure that the property owner complies with these important elements of the HOME Program and are also reviewed by HUD during monitoring visits. HUD reviews all other data collection requirements during monitoring to assure compliance with the requirements of the Act and other related laws and authorities. HUD tracks PJ performance and compliance with the requirements of 24 CFR parts 91 and 92. PJs use the required information in the execution of their program, and to gauge their own performance in relation to stated goals. E:\FR\FM\20SEN1.SGM 20SEN1
