                 Title of Collection: Account Level Data Collection from PACE
                Program Administrators.
                 OMB Control Number: 3170-0032.
                 Type of Review: Request for approval of a Generic Information
                Collection under an existing Generic Information Collection Plan.
                 Affected Public: Private and Public sector PACE loan providers.
                 Estimated Number of Respondents: 8.
                 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 320.
                 Abstract: Section 307 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief,
                and Consumer Protection Act mandates that the Bureau prescribe certain
                regulations relating to Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)
                financing. In order to better understand the PACE financing market and
                the unique nature of PACE financing, the Bureau issued an Advance
                Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on March 4, 2019. To further inform the
                development of the Bureau's proposed PACE rulemaking, the Bureau is
                requesting that PACE providers respond to a voluntary request for
                information relating to PACE applications and assessments.
                 Request for Comments: The Bureau is publishing this notice and
                soliciting comments on: (a) Whether the collection of information is
                necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau,
                including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The
                accuracy of the Bureau's estimate of the burden of the collection of
                information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions
                used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
                information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the
                collection of information on respondents, including through the use of
                automated collection techniques or other forms of information
                technology. Note that although the Bureau is requesting comments at
                this time, the Bureau will not proceed with the collection or request
                any responses until such time as the Bureau determines it will not
                impose an undue burden on respondents as they respond to the COVID-19
                pandemic. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be
                submitted to OMB as part of its review of this request. All comments
                will become a matter of public record.
                 Dated: June 4, 2020.
