Title of Proposal: Police Department Accreditation under the PHDEP.

OMB Control Number: 2577-0124.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) that intend to use PHDEP funds to support their police activities must be accredited by their State accreditation program, if one exist, or receive accreditation nationally from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). New and existing PHA police departments who have not been approved and want to use PHDEP funds for police services must submit a letter and supporting documents to HUD for approval.

Agency form number: None.

Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 13 PHA police departments are currently established, accreditation certification/letter, 25 minutes per response, total burden hours 3.25; HUD expects that no more than seven new PHA police departments will be established. Seven responses, annually, two hours per response, total burden hours 14. Total reporting burden for new and established PHA police departments will be 17.25 hours.

Status of the proposed information collection: Revision.
