The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on November 18, 2015 at 80 FR 72097. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Agency (PHA) 5-Year and Annual Plan. OMB Approval Number: 2577–0226. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. Form Number: HUD–50075–5Y, HUD–50075–ST, HUD–50075–SM, HUD–50075–HCV, HUD–50075–HP, HUD–50077–CR, HUD–50077–SL, HUD–50077–CRT–SM, HUD–50077– ST–HCV–HP, HUD–50070, HUD–50071. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan was created by section 5A of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437c–1). There are two different PHA Plans: the Five-Year Plan and the Annual Plan. The Five-Year Plan describes the agency’s mission and longrange goals and objectives for achieving its mission over a five-year period, and their approach to managing programs and providing services for the upcoming year. The Annual PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to PHA policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals. The PHA Plans informs HUD, residents, and the public of the PHA’s mission for serving the needs of low, very low-income, and extremely lowincome families and its strategy for addressing those needs. This information helps provide accountability to the local community for how PHAs spend their funding and implement their policies. Also, PHA PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 plans allow HUD to monitor the performance of programs and the performance of public housing agencies that administer them. HUD’s most recent action in October 2015 was to post a version of this collection which OMB approved as a full revision incorporating public comments in 2013, and with minor changes in late 2014. Public commenters urged HUD to return to earlier multiple versions of PHA Plan templates by specific PHA type instead of a ‘‘One-Size Fits All’’ form. With this current proposed information collection, HUD intends to further modify the HUD–50075–5Y, HUD– 50075–ST, HUD–50075–SM, HUD– 50075–HCV, HUD–50075–HP templates and HUD–50077 Civil Rights, PHA Plan, Related Regulations, and Consistency with State/local Consolidated Plan certifications in the following manner as needed without a major overhaul as was done for the 2013 approval: (1) Additional instructions will be provided to PHA’s planning to convert all ACC units to Project-Based Assistance under RAD resulting in the removal of all ACC units from the PHAs public housing inventory. These PHA’s will be required to provide a plan for disposition of remaining public housing property, (2) Incorporating mandatory RAD information into the existing PHA Plan templates to improve, streamline, and provide clarity to the RAD significant amendment process, (3) Modify all forms as needed to reference or otherwise address the new requirements of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Rule published July 16, 2015, (4) Re-introduce as a submission requirement ‘‘Challenged Elements,’’ (5) Remove obsolete references to OMB circulars that were replaced by OMB’s Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements in 2 CFR 200, (6) Expand the Civil Rights certification to include equal access to all housing regardless of LGBT and marital status and prohibit inquiries made of applications or occupants concerning sexual orientation or gender identification and, (7) Replacing the 50077 form with customized versions to align with streamlined requirements of 24 CFR 903. Finally, due to the de-coupling of Capital Fund Program activities from PHA Plan submissions, the HUD– 50075.1 and HUD–50075.2 Capital Fund Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report and 5-Year Action Plan forms and associated burden hours (10,070) will be removed from the approval for the PHA Plan under OMB no. 2577–0226 and added to the E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 36 / Wednesday, February 24, 2016 / Notices approval for the Capital Fund Program under OMB no. 2577–0157.

PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9215 Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Public Housing Capital Fund Program Final Rule (24 CFR 905) was published in the Federal Register October 24, 2013 (Docket No. 5236–F–02) and was effective on November 25, 2013. The new Capital, Fund Rule de-coupled the capital funding annual performance and evaluation reports (HUD form 50775.1) and 5-Year Action Plan (HUD Form 50075.2) submissions that were formerly combined with the PHA Plan submissions. The HUD–50075.1 and HUD–50075.2 Capital Fund Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report and 5-Year Action Plan forms and associated burden hours (10,070) are being removed from the approval for the PHA Plan under OMB no. 2577– 0226 and added to the approval for the Capital Fund Program under OMB no. 2577–0157. The revision to PHA Plan information collection, OMB No. 2577– 0226, is being submitted concurrently with this submission. HUD is in the process of moving to an electronic submission of the information collected with forms HUD–50075.1 and HUD– 50075.2 under the Activity Planning Module of the Energy and Performance Information Center (EPIC) System. HUD began beta testing of the Activity Planning Module in EPIC in August of 2015. Once beta testing is complete, HUD will begin roll out of the submission of the HUD–50075.1 and HUD–50075.2 data to EPIC in lieu of using the paper forms for submission. The hours for the electronic collection of that information will then be moved from Capital Fund Information Collection, OMB No. 2577–0157 to the EPIC Information Collection—OMB No. 2577–0274.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Agency (PHA) 5-Year 
and Annual Plan.
    OMB Approval Number: 2577-0226.
    Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
    Form Number: HUD-50075-5Y, HUD-50075-ST, HUD-50075-SM, HUD-50075-
HCV, HUD-50075-HP, HUD-50077-CR, HUD-50077-SL, HUD-50077-CRT-SM, HUD-
50077-ST-HCV-HP, HUD-50070, HUD-50071.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan was created by section 5A of the 
United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437c-1). There are two 
different PHA Plans: the Five-Year Plan and the Annual Plan. The Five-
Year Plan describes the agency's mission and long-range goals and 
objectives for achieving its mission over a five-year period, and their 
approach to managing programs and providing services for the upcoming 
year. The Annual PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to PHA policies, 
programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs 
and goals.
    The PHA Plans informs HUD, residents, and the public of the PHA's 
mission for serving the needs of low, very low-income, and extremely 
low-income families and its strategy for addressing those needs. This 
information helps provide accountability to the local community for how 
PHAs spend their funding and implement their policies. Also, PHA plans 
allow HUD to monitor the performance of programs and the performance of 
public housing agencies that administer them.
    HUD's most recent action in October 2015 was to post a version of 
this collection which OMB approved as a full revision incorporating 
public comments in 2013, and with minor changes in late 2014. Public 
commenters urged HUD to return to earlier multiple versions of PHA Plan 
templates by specific PHA type instead of a ``One-Size Fits All'' form. 
With this current proposed information collection, HUD intends to 
further modify the HUD-50075-5Y, HUD-50075-ST, HUD-50075-SM, HUD-50075-
HCV, HUD-50075-HP templates and HUD-50077 Civil Rights, PHA Plan, 
Related Regulations, and Consistency with State/local Consolidated Plan 
certifications in the following manner as needed without a major 
overhaul as was done for the 2013 approval: (1) Additional instructions 
will be provided to PHA's planning to convert all ACC units to Project-
Based Assistance under RAD resulting in the removal of all ACC units 
from the PHAs public housing inventory. These PHA's will be required to 
provide a plan for disposition of remaining public housing property, 
(2) Incorporating mandatory RAD information into the existing PHA Plan 
templates to improve, streamline, and provide clarity to the RAD 
significant amendment process, (3) Modify all forms as needed to 
reference or otherwise address the new requirements of the 
Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Rule published July 16, 
2015, (4) Re-introduce as a submission requirement ``Challenged 
Elements,'' (5) Remove obsolete references to OMB circulars that were 
replaced by OMB's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, 
and Audit Requirements in 2 CFR 200, (6) Expand the Civil Rights 
certification to include equal access to all housing regardless of LGBT 
and marital status and prohibit inquiries made of applications or 
occupants concerning sexual orientation or gender identification and, 
(7) Replacing the 50077 form with customized versions to align with 
streamlined requirements of 24 CFR 903.
    Finally, due to the de-coupling of Capital Fund Program activities 
from PHA Plan submissions, the HUD-50075.1 and HUD-50075.2 Capital Fund 
Annual Statement/Performance and Evaluation Report and 5-Year Action 
Plan forms and associated burden hours (10,070) will be removed from
