Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB Public Housing Admissions/Occupancy Policies

Action

Notice.

Summary

The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.

Correction

The Statute requires HUD to ensure the low-income character of public housing projects and to assure that sound management practices will be followed in the operation of the project. Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) enter into an Annual Contribution Contract (ACC) with HUD to assist low-income tenants. HUD regulations, Part 960, provide policies and procedures for PHAs to administer the low-income housing program for admission and occupancy. Statutory and regulatory authority grants PHAs flexibility to structure admission and occupancy policies. PHAs must develop and keep on file the admission and continued occupancy policies and include this information in their Administrative Plan. PHA compliance will support the statute; and, HUD can ensure that the low-income character of the project and sound management practices will be followed.
