AGENCY:

Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing, and Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, HUD.

ACTION:

Notice of a federal advisory committee meeting.

SUMMARY:

This notice sets forth the schedule and proposed agenda of two scheduled meetings of the Moving to Work (MTW) Research Advisory Committee (Committee). The Committee meetings will be held via conference call on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, and Thursday, July 28. The meeting is open to the public and is accessible to individuals with disabilities. Pursuant to 41 CFR 102-3.150, notice for the July 26, 2016, meeting is being published fewer than 15 calendar days prior to the meeting as exceptional circumstances exist. It is imperative that the Committee hold its July 26, 2016, meeting to accommodate the scheduling priorities of key participants so that they may begin the work of the Committee. Given HUD's need for the Committee's advice, and the scheduling difficulties of selecting an alternative date, the agency deems it important for the advisory committee to meet on the July 26, 2016.

DATES:

The teleconference meetings will be held on July 26, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and July 28, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EDT).
