[[Page 57106]]

Control Grantees Regarding Their Use of Healthy Homes Supplemental 
Funding.
    OMB Control Number: To be assigned.
    Need for the Information and Proposed Use: HUD is interested in 
collecting information on the use of supplemental Healthy Homes Program 
funds by HUD Lead Hazard Control (LHC) Program grantees. LHC applicants 
have been eligible to receive supplemental funding to support modest 
``healthy homes'' interventions in target housing starting in FY 2009. 
The Healthy Homes Program funds can be used by the grantees to mitigate 
priority health and safety hazards that cannot be addressed using Lead 
Hazard Control Program grant funds. Individual grantees were eligible 
to receive the following amounts of supplemental funds in the four 
fiscal years that the supplemental funds have been offered: $75,000 per 
grantee in FY 2009; $100,000 in FY 2010; $150,000 in FY 2011, and 
$200,000 in FY 2012. In FY 2011 and FY 2012, grantees were required to 
use the Healthy Homes Rating System (HHRS) to identify the residential 
hazards to be addressed. Approximately 80 grantees have received the 
healthy homes supplement during the period in which the funds have been 
offered.
    Grantees will be asked the following:
    a. How the LHC grantees have been using the healthy homes 
supplemental funds, and their experience using the HHRS assessment 
tool.
    b. To identify effective healthy homes practices that can be 
summarized and made available to other programs through the development 
of case studies, etc.
    Agency Form Numbers: None.
    Members of Affected Public: HUD Office of Healthy Homes and Lead 
Hazard Control's Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control grantees, and the 
grantees' contractors, where applicable.
