DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR STATE HOME CONSTRUCTION AND ACQUISITION GRANTS - POST-GRANT REQUIREMENTS
The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 requires us to notify you that this information collection is in accordance with the clearance requirements of section 3507 of this Act. The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 6 hours per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. We may not collect or sponsor and you are not required to respond to, a collection unless it has a valid OMB Control Number. This collection of information is collected under the authority of 38 U.S. Code Sections 8133(a) and 8135(a). VA will use this information, along with other documents submitted by the States to determine the feasibility of the projects for VA participation, to meet VA requirements for a grant award and to rank the projects in establishing the annual fiscal year priority list. Although response is voluntary, VA will be unable to authorize a grant without a complete package. Your failure to furnish this information will have no effect on any of other benefits to which you are entitled.

A separate, complete itemized list to include fixed and other equipment (not including equipment in the construction contract) by category with the cost, quantity, and placement in accordance with the final drawings, but not including consumable goods or office supplies. (NOTE: if no equipment is involved in the project, a statement to that effect should be included in the request for the final architectural/engineering inspection.) This equipment list must be approved by VA prior to final claim payment.
A request in writing for the final grant program review, including the name and telephone number of the local point of contact for the project.
