Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The information collection burden associated with designated housing is required by statute.

In this plan, PHAs must document why the designation is needed and what additional housing resources will be available to the non-designated group.
Agency form number: None.
Members of affected public: State or Local government.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents: 176 respondents; one response per respondent annually; 21 hours average per response, 3,358 total reporting burden hours per year.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a previously approved collection.Start Signature
