In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), HUD received approval on January 9, 2018 to continue collecting information for the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) program under OMB Control Number 2506-0133. Minor revisions and technical edits to the forms HUD-40110-B (HOPWA Competitive Application & Renewal of Permanent Supportive Housing Project Budget Summary), HUD-40110-C (Annual Progress Report (APR) for competitive and renewal grantees), HUD-40110-D (Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for formula grantees) occurred through this recent approval. A complete list of technical edits incorporated into forms covered by this recent approval include the following.

    1. Cover page description. The statement, “Selections of applications for funding under the HOPWA Program are based on the rating factors set forth in the SuperNOFA for Housing and Community Development Programs and the criteria established in the annual HOPWA renewal notice for those permanent supportive housing grantee’s seeking renewal funding.” changed to, “Selections of applications for funding under the HOPWA Program are based on the rating factors set forth in the published NOFA and the criteria established in the annual HOPWA renewal notice for eligible permanent supportive housing grantees seeking renewal funding.” This edit reflects a change in Departmental process that now each program office releases a NOFA when funding is available to be awarded.
