Applicable regulations are 24 CFR 941 for public housing development and 24 CFR 969 for continued operation of low-income housing after completion of debt service. This collection also covers Public Housing Authority (PHA) submissions under Sections 18, 22, 33 and 32 that involve the authority of the HUD Secretary to approve PHA requests to remove certain public housing property from their inventories through demolition, disposition, voluntary conversion, required conversion or homeownership conveyance.
