Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program-Required Data Elements Collection
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. HUD is implementing a mortgage relief program entitled the Emergency Homeowners Loan Program. The program will offer a declining balance, deferred payment ``bridge loan'' (non-recourse, subordinate loan with zero interest) for up to $50,000 to assist eligible homeowners with payments of arrearages, including mortgages, delinquent taxes, insurance premiums, condominium or homeowners association fees; late fees; and certain foreclosure-related attorney's fee. In addition to payment of arrearages, EHLP funds may also be used to assist eligible homeowners to make up to 24 months of mortgage payments on their mortgage principal, interest, taxes and insurance (PITI), as well as condominium/homeowner association fees, as applicable.
