This Notice also lists the following information:

Title of Proposal: Admission to, and Occupancy of Public Housing.

OMB Control Number: 2577-0220.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Statute 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 housing program for admission and occupancy. PHAs must develop and keep on file the admission and occupancy policies and the PHA must include in the annual plan or supporting documents the number and location of the units to be occupied by police officers, and the terms and conditions of their tenancies; and a statement that such occupancy is needed to increase security for public housing residents. PHA compliance will support the statute; and HUD can ensure that the low-income character of the project and sound management practices will be followed.

Agency form number, if applicable: Not applicable.

Members of affected public: State, Local or Tribal Government.

Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including respondents: The estimated number of respondents is 3,278 annually with one response per respondent. The average number for each response is 60 hours, for a total burden of 196,680.

Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of currently approved collection.
