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 August 19, 2016 at 81 FR 55472.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP).
OMB Approval Number: 2577-0215.
Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
Form Number: HUD-52658.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: On an annual basis (or every two years for small agencies) PHAs are required to submit a SEMAP certification (form HUD-52648) electronically into the Information Management System/Public and Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC). There is a maximum of 15 indicators that are either verified through PIC data or an on-site or off-site confirmatory review. HUD uses the PHA's SEMAP certification, together with other available data, to assess PHA management capabilities and deficiencies, and to assign an overall performance rating to each PHA administering a HCV program. HUD rates a PHA on each SEMAP indicator, completes a PHA SEMAP profile identifying any program management deficiencies and assigns an overall performance rating. A PHA's written report of correction of a SEMAP deficiency is used as documentation that the PHA has taken action to address identified program weaknesses. Where HUD assigns an overall performance rating of troubled, the PHA's corrective action plan is used to monitor the PHA's progress on program improvements.
Respondents (i.e. affected public): Public Housing Agencies.
Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burden:
|Information collection||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Total annual responses||Hours per response||Total hours||Regulatory reference|
|Corrective Action Plan||80||1||80||10||800||985.107(c)|

(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;
