Title of Proposal: Public Housing Occupancy Data.

OMB Approval Number: 2577-0028.

Form Number: HUD-50058.

Description of the need for the information and its proposed use: Housing Agencies (HAs) are required to submit occupancy information electronically to HUD through the Form 50058 module of the Public and Indian Housing (PIH) Information Center (PIC). The information to be collected provides occupancy information to monitor units that are or will be vacant, demolished, boarded-up, under repair/modernization rehabilitation, or converted to a non-dwelling status. These unoccupied units represent a serious waste of program resources that could be averted by HUD attention and intervention. The information on the Form 50058 is verified electronically before it is accepted in the PIC system. The information is used to prepare input to reports on Presidential and Congressional needs.

Members of Effected Public: Individuals or households, State, Local, or Tribal Government.
