    Title of Proposal: OneCPD Technical Assistance and Capacity 
Building Needs Assessment.
    Description of the need for the information proposed: The OneCPD 
Needs Assessment will enhance a grantee's awareness of their functional 
capacity to effectively and efficiently administer and manage programs 
funded by CPD and enable HUD and the TA provider to better understand 
the scope of assistance needed by each grantee and to target 
appropriate TA resources to grantees. It will also enable HUD to 
identify trends in TA needs across grantees and assist in prioritizing 
the development of tools, products and group learning activities to 
benefit CPD grantees and subrecipients.
    Members of the affected public: Grantees and subrecipient 
organizations receiving funding to operate and manage programs 
administered by the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD).
    Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the 
information collection including number of respondents, frequency of 
response, and hours of response: 180 respondents x 176.4 average hours 
per response = 31,752 hours annually.
    Status of proposed information collection: New Collection.

    Authority: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
44 U.S.C Chapter 35, as amended.
