HUD uses the information on these forms to determine the operating subsidy obligation and proration level for each PHA. The forms HUD 52723 and HUD 52722 will be submitted through templates; form HUD 53087 will be submitted via hard copy.
Agency Form Numbers, if Applicable: HUD-52722, HUD-52723, and HUD-53087.
Members of Affected Public: Public Housing Agencies.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of responses, and hours of response: The estimation number of respondents is 6,997 annually with 1 response per respondent for forms HUD-52722 and HUD-52723 for a total of 13,910 responses; and 1 response per 9 respondents for form HUD-53087 for a total of 9 responses.
