This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A.
The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on March 4, 2016 at 81 FR 11584.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Agency (PHA) Lease and Grievance Requirements.
OMB Approval Number: 2577-0006.
Type of Request: Reinstatement of currently approved collection.
Form Number: None.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Public Housing lease and grievance procedures are a recordkeeping requirement on the part of Public Housing agencies (PHAs) as they are required to enter into and maintain lease agreements for each individual or family that occupies a Public Housing unit. Also, both PHAs and tenants are required to follow the protocols set forth in the grievance procedures for both an informal and formal grievance hearing. This information collection is a revision of the previous submission. The reduction in burden hours is attributable to a fewer number of tenants in public housing covered by these lease and grievance procedures.
Respondents (i.e., affected public): Public Housing Authorities (PHAs).
Estimated Number of Respondents: 945,539.
Estimated Number of Responses: 1,359,284.
Frequency of Response: 1.
Average Hours per Response: .25.
Total Estimated Burden: 330,939 hours.
B. Solicitation of Public Comment
This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following:
(1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;
(2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information;
(3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions.
