SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Notice informs the public that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to OMB, for emergency processing, a proposed information collection that requires the addition of four new input fields within the Voucher Management System (VMS). The VMS is currently used by Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) to report their monthly leasing and expense information in connection with the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. The VMS collects data on monthly leasing activities and costs for the HCV program via mandatory PHA reporting. It is a critical data system that is used for a variety of major functions, including budget formulation, utilization analysis, and funding allocations. As such, accuracy of the data is extremely important. The system is periodically enhanced to provide new flexibilities or features for improved ease and accuracy of reporting and use of the data. Accordingly, the new VMS reporting fields are designed to provide greater effectiveness in monitoring the PHAs’ financial data and to provide a more complete picture of the PHAs’ funding and resources. The reporting enhancements are expected to assist HUD’s goal of achieving improved financial accountability by the PHAs and greater recognition of potential shortfalls that may impede the PHAs’ ability to assist as many families and individuals as possible while staying within their budget. Title of Proposed Notice: Housing Choice Voucher Program (Voucher Management System Enhancements and Reporting Requirements.) Description of Information Collection: This is a revision of a previously approved information collection. The Department of Housing and Urban Development is seeking emergency review of the Paperwork Reduction Act E:\FR\FM\26MRN1.SGM 26MRN1
