This notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Public Housing Operating Subsidy—Stop-Loss and Appeals. OMB Control Number: 2577–0246. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: PHAs that will experience a reduction in subsidy will have their subsidy reduction phased in over a five-year period. PHAs that elect to stop the phase in of the decrease in their subsidy are required to demonstrate to HUD a successful conversion to asset management, as provided in the operating fund final rule. A PHA with a reduction in subsidy may make this demonstration to HUD in order to ‘‘stop its losses’’ during any one of the five years over which HUD phases in the reduction. Under the operating fund final rule, PHAs that elect to file an appeal of their subsidy amounts are required to meet the appeal requirements set forth in subpart G of the operating fund final rule. The final rule establishes five grounds for appeals in 24 CFR § 990.245 and they are the: (a) Streamlined appeal; (b) appeal of formula income for economic hardship; (c) appeal for specific local conditions; (d) appeal for changing market conditions; and (e) appeal to substitute actual project cost data. To stop the phase-in of the reduction in the amount of subsidy a PHA receives under the new operating fund formula, PHAs submit a ‘‘stop-loss’’ package to HUD demonstrating conversion to asset management. To appeal the amount of subsidy on any one of the permitted bases of appeal, PHAs submit an appeal request to HUD. Agency form number, if applicable: N/A. Members of affected public: PHAs, state or local government. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents: The estimated number of respondents is an annual average of 146 PHAs that submit one request for stoploss and an annual average of 176 PHAs that submit an appeal of the amount of operating subsidy, for a total 322 PHAs that submit annually. The average number for each PHA response varies by size of the PHA, with a total reporting burden of 5,168 hours: An average of 21.7 hours per respondent for stop-loss; E:\FR\FM\02SEN1.SGM 02SEN1
