Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) Training and Technical Assistance; Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)
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 Department of Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, as approved on November 18, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-55, 125 Stat. 552) authorizes HUD to award training and technical assistance contracts on a competitive basis. HUD intends to competitively award training and technical assistance contracts to national and regional nonprofit and for profit entities with demonstrated experience and expertise in the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA). The purpose of the ONAP Training and Technical Assistance program is to improve the quality and quantity of low-income housing in Native American, Alaska Native, and native Hawaiian communities, as funded by Indian Housing Block Grants (IHBG) and Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grants (NHHBG) and authorized by NAHASDA. The regulations for the IHBG program are at 24 CFR part 1000, and for the NHHBG program at 24 CFR part 1006. Successful applicants will have demonstrated training and technical assistance experience and expertise in NAHASDA; low-income housing development, inspection, maintenance, modernization, and operation; admissions and occupancy; procurement; financial and fiscal management; program income; governance and organizational development; leveraged financing, including Low Income Housing Tax Credits; healthy home environments, including mold and air quality issues; homebuyer education; crime prevention; youth activities, including Boys and Girls Clubs; and other topics responsive to low- income housing issues in native communities. Training and technical assistance services will be provided onsite and remotely, on a one-on- one and classroom basis. Respondents to the NOFA will be required to submit a single proposal regardless of the number of programs or areas of expertise for which they offer to provide training and technical assistance. Factors for award include Factor 1: Capacity and Experience, Factor 2: Soundness of Approach, Factor 3: Leveraging, and Factor 4: Achieving Results and Program Evaluation. Narratives addressing Factors 1-4 must be formatted so that the total number of pages submitted is equal to or no more than 25 single-sided pages. The one-page application summary, organizational chart, budget discussion, and required forms are not included in the 25 page limit. Required forms include HUD-2880 (Applicant/Recipient Disclosure Update), HUD- 2993 (Acknowledgement of Application Receipt), HUD-96011 (HUD Facsimile Transmittal), SF-424 (Application for Federal Assistance), and SF-LLL (Disclosure of Lobbying Activities). Applicants must submit their applications electronically to Grants.Gov or request a waiver from HUD. HUD expects to receive 25 applications and select ten awardees to enter in 24-month cooperative agreements, with a 12-month option period.
