Document Number: 2011-291
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-01-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This survey provides the data necessary to measure the rate at which different types of new rental apartments and new condominium apartments are absorbed, that is, taken off the market, usually by being rented or sold, over the course of the first twelve months following completion of a building. The data is collected at quarterly intervals until the twelve months expire or until the units in a building are completely absorbed. The survey also provides estimates of the characteristics of apartments being absorbed, and provides a basis for analyzing the degree to which apartment-building activity is meeting the present and future needs of the public. Data are collected under Title 12, U.S.C. Sec. 1701Z-1 and 2.

Document Number: 2011-289
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-01-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. The Housing Discrimination Information Form (HUD-903.1) is necessary for the collection of pertinent information from persons or entities who wish to file housing discrimination complaints with HUD under the Fair Housing Act of 1968 (Act), as amended [42 U.S.C. 3601 et seq.]. The Housing Discrimination Information Form (``Form'') provides for uniformity and easy use by the person filing the complaint. The Form is used to collect information needed to contact aggrieved persons, and for verifying HUD's authority [``jurisdiction''] to investigate complaints under the Act. This information is subsequently used to notify persons or entities that have been accused of engaging in discriminatory housing practices [``respondents''], as required under 42 U.S.C. 3610(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, and under 24 CFR 103.202(a) of HUD's Regulation implementing the Act. The Form may be submitted to HUD by mail, electronically via the Internet, or presented in person to HUD's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO). HUD/FHEO staff uses this information collection as a source of pertinent data for the Title Eight Automated Paperless Office Tracking System (``TEAPOTS''), HUD's automated Fair Housing Act complaint processing database. FHEO staff will use the information provided to contact aggrieved persons; to make initial assessments regarding HUD's authority (jurisdiction) to investigate allegations of unlawful housing discrimination; to formally notify any persons and entities who have been accused of violating the Act; and to prepare for conducting administrative complaint investigations.
