SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department will submit the proposed information collection to OMB review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended) This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. The notice also lists the following information:

Title of Proposal: Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan.

OMB Control Number: 2577-0226.

Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: This proposed rules extends the use of the previously OMB approved template for the Public Housing Five-Year and Annual Plan. Public housing Agencies (PHAs) submit an annual plan for each fiscal year for which the PHA received tenant-based assistance and public housing operating subsidy. This plan provides a framework for local accountability and to the extent possible, an easily identifiable source by which public housing residents, participants in the housing choice voucher program, and other members of the public may locate housing and services. The PHA plan is a Web-based application (allowing PHAs to retrieve the applicable templates) that allows PHAs to provide their plans to HUD via the Internet. The system allows HUD to track plans every year with limited reporting and any changes from the previous submission.

Agency Form Number: HUD-50075, HUD-50075 SA, HUD-50075 SF.

Members of the Affected Public: State or local government.
