Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 41 / Wednesday, March 3, 2010 / Notices system as it is not used by many States, unless it could be modified to allow XML upload and aggregate-only data. Response: XML is beneficial since it is a commonly used method of electronically encoding documents, usable over the Internet, and compatible with many programming interfaces that can be used to extract data. HUD will be using a system similar to TRACS to accept data files from the State housing finance agencies. This system accepts a variety of file formats, including XML. HUD plans to modify the system for this data collection effort to ensure that it accepts the requested file formats. Comment: HUD should make clear that responses to race, ethnicity, and disability status data are voluntary; whether the requirement to collect data exists for the 15-year tax credit compliance period or the extended period as well, arguing that the data collection should not apply after the initial 15 year period; and that, since there is no built-in enforcement mechanism, a good-faith effort to collect the data should suffice for compliance. One commenter stated that HUD should address how the data collection methodology will be coordinated with the authority HERA grants for State tax credit agencies to waive annual recertification requirements. Response: Data collection will include all low-income units monitored for compliance as long as they remain in the program, including those in the extended-use period. Tying the collection of information to the actual technical use of the credit makes little sense as most tax-credit owners actually sell or syndicate their credits at the outset. The key, rather, is that the units have received the benefit of tax credits and continue to remain in the program as low-income units, and it is those complying units that Congress seeks information about. Data collection will be consistent with new HERA re-certification rules for 100 percent low-income unit properties. As to the race, ethnicity, and disability questions, a household cannot be forced to provide this information. If the household does not provide the information, the State agency shall make its best efforts to report the information based on observation or derived from other sources. Comment: Commenters stated that HUD should make available a guidebook, procedures manual, or other informational guidance. Response: HUD is specifying the data it is collecting in this notice and in the paperwork approval request published in the Federal Register. In addition, the information contact listed in this rule VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:08 Mar 02, 2010 Jkt 220001 can provide copies of the actual revised notices. HUD may publish additional guidance in the near future. Comment: HUD should make development-level data available as soon as possible after it is collected so that it can be analyzed, for example, to determine Fair Housing Act compliance or whether families with incomes below the poverty line are being served. Response: The statute requires HUD to compile and make the information collected available ‘‘not less than annually.’’ HUD plans to fulfill that statutory requirement. Comment: One commenter stated that data elements should be precisely defined so there is no variability from State to State. For example, all States should follow the same rounding rules. Response: HUD believes that most of the data being collected, such as age, ethnicity, family composition, disability status and age, is expressible in whole integers and will not require rounding. If it appears that rounding rules could affect the data in a statistically significant way, HUD may provide further guidance as needed. Comment: One commenter sought additional data collections for civilrights related purposes. This commenter stated that HUD should collect racial and ethnic data on applicants for LIHTC housing to better assess affirmative marketing compliance. This commenter also stated that when initial data is released, HUD should contract with ‘‘reputable and independent research organizations to analyze the civil rights performance of LIHTC State agencies and project managers/developers’’ to identify possible patterns of civil rights violations for further action by HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. This commenter states that there has been a ‘‘longstanding failure’’ to collect racial and ethnic data in the LIHTC program. Response: HUD does not have statutory authority to collect data on applicants. While generally HUD supports improved civil rights performance in assisted housing, this particular statute is limited to collecting specified information. This information includes race, ethnicity, and disability status on households residing in properties receiving credits under the low-income housing tax credit program. Congress has not currently provided HUD with the authorization or funding to conduct the study suggested. Comment: Some commenters state that there should be transition periods of various times to give State agencies time to launch their new systems. Commenters also stated that compliance costs would be significant and that HUD PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9611 should provide or petition Congress to provide additional funding to cover the extra costs. Response: HUD understands that States may encounter difficulty in completing the data collection requests. HUD will address on a State-by-State basis the need for additional time and is procuring services to assist States in their transition. However, while Congress has authorized funds for this data collection, funds were not appropriated for this specific purpose in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009. The authorized funding amounts are limited to $2,500,000 for FY 2009 and $900,000 for each of FYs 2010 through 2013. States should be aware of this limited funding. III.
