Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Statute requires HUD to ensure the low-income character of public housing projects and to assure sound management practices will be followed in the operation of the project. Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) entered 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 public housing program for admission and occupancy. PHAs must develop and keep on file admission and occupancy policies including the plan for eligibility of police officers which is approved by HUD. PHA compliance will support the statute; HUD can ensure that the low-income character of the project and that sound management practices will be followed.
Agency form number: None.
Members of affected public: State, Local government; Resident Organizations.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 3,300 respondents, 1 response per respondent, 3,300 total responses, 344,800 (3.300x10.4 hours) total burden hours.
