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, with change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
Form Number: N/A.
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 tenant who occupies a Public Housing unit. Also, both PHAs and tenants are required to follow the protocols set forth in the grievance procedures stated in their respective leases for both an informal and formal grievance hearing. This information collection is a reinstatement, with change, of the previous approved collection which has expired. The change is due to an update to the burden and cost estimate.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 821,741.
Estimated Number of Responses: 1,150,437.
