Description of the Need for the Information and Its Proposed Use: The Statue 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 public housing program for admission and occupancy. PHAs must develop and keep on file the admission and occupancy policies including the plan for eligibility of police officers, which is approved by HUD. PHA compliance will support the stature; HUD can ensure that the low-income character of the project and that sound management practices will be followed.

Respondents: Individuals or households, State, Local or Tribal Government.
