SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department will submit the proposed information collection to OMB for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended).

This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Study of Rents and Rent Flexibility. OMB Control Number: 2577–pending. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The Department is conducting, under contract with Abt Associates and its PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 partners, Applied Real Estate Analysis Inc. (AREA) and the Urban Institute, an exploration into alternative rent structures to the current income-based system used in the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs. These two programs serve over 3 million low-income and extremely lowincome families. They are programs that have steadily increased in complexity and costs. Because these programs shape who is assisted (and who is not), what they pay, what they earn, and how long they stay, it is important to understand three important elements of program administration. Those components are eligibility preferences based on extremely low-income standards, tenant contributions based primarily on 30 percent of adjusted reported incomes, and (in the voucher program) the payment standard that caps the gross rent and helps determine how much of the gross rent is the tenant’s responsibility and how much is the Housing Authority’s. This study will review possible reforms and alternative rent structures to the current incomebased approach for calculating rental subsidies in these two programs. Through a combination of on-site and phone interviews the contractors will research the current components of income used for determining eligibility and income-based tenant rents, alternative subsidy structures, possible effects of reform regarding level of subsidy, availability of possible additional subsidies to needy, but unassisted populations. The data collected through the interviews will describe the current system and key issues including, administration, tenant income/data collection accuracy and if the current distribution of assistance is equitable. Interviews will also yield important information regarding thoughts on proposed alternative systems and how they may be advantageous or detrimental to the success of the PHA. In summary, the data collected via interviews will be used in determining the impacts of alternative rent structures if implemented in the public housing and housing choice voucher program in comparison with the current incomebased system. Agency form number, if applicable: Not applicable. Members of affected public: Staff from Public Housing Authorities included in the sample and waiting list and recent admission households into either the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher program.
