A. Overview of Information Collection

Title of Information Collection: Allocation of Operating Subsidies under the Operating Fund Formula: Data Collection.

OMB Approval Number: 2577-0029.

Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collections.

Form Number: HUD-52722 and HUD-52723.

Respondents: State, Local or Tribal Government, Public Housing Agencies (PHAs).

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) use this information in budget submissions which are reviewed and approved by HUD field offices as the basis for obligating operating subsidies. This information is necessary to calculate the eligibility for operating subsidies under the Operating Funding Program regulations, as amended. The Operating Fund is designed to provide the amount of operating subsidy needed for well-managed PHAs. PHAs submit the information electronically with these forms.

Three changes occurred with the form HUD-52723. First, respondents requested to provide the total number of units for all projects under the Annual Contributions Contract (ACC). Second, aligned the requirements for Limited Vacancy (Section 2, Line 14) to 24 CFR 990.150. Finally, respondents may enter the Resident Paid Utilities benefits for Energy Performance Contracts in a separate line (Section 3, Part B, Line 02). There is one change to the HUD-52722, HUD eliminated the Frozen Rolling Base checkbox in Section 1 and instead the respondents indicate a Rolling Base Consumption Level Category for each utility.
