60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Community Challenge Planning Grant Program
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 60 days of public comment. The Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (Pub. L. 112-10, approved April 15, 2011) (Appropriations Act), provided a total of $100,000,000 to HUD for a Sustainable Communities Initiative to improve regional planning efforts that integrate housing and transportation decisions, and increase the capacity to improve land use and zoning. Of that total, $70,000,000 is available for the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program, and $30,000,000 is available for the Community Challenge Planning Grant Program. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117, December 16, 2009), provided a total of $150 million in fiscal year 2010 to HUD for a Sustainable Communities Initiative to improve regional planning efforts that integrate housing and transportation decisions, and increase the capacity to improve land use and zoning. HUD is seeking renewal of its Community Challenge Planning Grant Program. The changes of this renewal from its original approval will be a reduction in burden hours. This reduction is due to no new award funds for the program; thus, form HUD-96011 and form HUD-2880 are no longer needed. Those two forms were utilized during the awarding process of the program. With no new award funds expected, these forms will be no longer needed for this program. Only form HUD-424-CBW will continue to be needed as this form is used to record and manage detailed budgetary expenditures and projections of HUD award funds and match funds spent toward grant activities.
