Download as PDF pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 190 / Friday, October 2, 2009 / Notices published in the Federal Register on January 27, 2009 at 74 FR 4832, processing entities that administer the Public Housing, Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Moderate Rehabilitation programs are required to use HUD’s Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system to verify employment and income information of program participants and to reduce administrative and subsidy payment errors. The EIV system is a system of records owned by HUD, as published in the Federal Register on July 20, 2005 at 70 FR 41780 and updated on August 8, 2006 at 71 FR 45066. The Department seeks to identify families who no longer participate in a HUD rental assistance program due to adverse termination of tenancy and/or assistance, and owe a debt to a Public Housing Agency (PHA). In accordance with 24 CFR 982.552 and 960.203, the PHA may deny admission to a program if the family is not suitable for tenancy for such reasons (but not limited to): unacceptable past performance in meeting financial obligations, history of criminal activity, eviction from Federally assisted housing in the last five years, family has committed fraud, bribery, or any other corrupt or criminal act in connection with a Federal housing program, or if a family currently owes rent or other amounts to the PHA or to another PHA in connection with a Federally assisted housing program under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937. Within the scope of this new collection of information, HUD seeks to collect from all PHAs, the following information: 1. Amount of debt owed by a former tenant to a PHA; 2. If applicable, indication of executed repayment agreement; 3. If applicable, indication of bankruptcy filing; 4. If applicable, the reason for any adverse termination of the family from a Federally assisted housing program. This information will be collected electronically from PHAs via HUD’s EIV system. This information will be used by HUD to create a national repository of families that owe a debt to a PHA and/or have been terminated from a Federally assisted housing program. This national repository will be available within the EIV system for all PHAs to access during the time of application for rental assistance. PHAs will be able to access this information to determine a family’s suitability for rental assistance, and avoid providing limited Federal housing assistance to families who have previously been unable to comply with HUD program VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:40 Oct 01, 2009 Jkt 220001 requirements. If this information is not collected, the Department is at risk of paying limited Federal dollars on behalf of families who may not be eligible to receive rental housing assistance. Furthermore, if this information is not collected, the public will perceive that there are no consequences for a family’s failure to comply with HUD program requirements. Agency Form Numbers: N/A.
