ADDRESSES: asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Elements for the Annual MTW Plan and Annual MTW Report. OMB Approval Number: 2577–0216. Type of Request: Revision to currently approved collection. Form Number: 50900. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: All Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are required to submit a five (5) Year Plan and Annual Plans as stated in Section 5A of the 1937 Act, as amended; however, for PHAs with specific types of Moving to Work (MTW) demonstration agreements (39 at the time of submission of this request) the Annual MTW Plan and Annual MTW Reports are submitted in lieu of the standard annual and 5 year PHA plans. The MTW Demonstration was authorized under Section 204 of the Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–134, 110 Stat 1321), dated April 26, 1996. The original MTW Demonstration statute permitted up to 30 PHAs to participate in the demonstration VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:18 Feb 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 program. Nineteen PHAs were selected for participation in the MTW demonstration in response to a HUD Notice published in the Federal Register on December 18, 1996 and five of the 30 slots were filled through the Jobs-Plus Community Response Initiative. Additional MTW ‘slots’ have been added by Congress over time through appropriations statutes. Two PHAs were specifically named and authorized to join the demonstration in 1999 under the VA, HUD, and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 1999 (Pub. L. 105–276, 112 Stat. 2461), dated October 21, 1998. A Public and Indian Housing Notice (PIH Notice 2000–52) issued December 13, 2000, allowed up to an additional 6 PHAs to participate in the MTW demonstration. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110–161, 121 Stat. 1844) added four named PHAs to the Moving to Work demonstration program. Subsequent appropriations acts for 2009, 2010, and 2011 authorized a total of 12 additional MTW slots. As part of HUD’s 2009 budget appropriation (Section 236, title II, division I of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, enacted March 11, 2009), Congress directed HUD to add three agencies to the MTW program. As part of HUD’s 2010 budget appropriation (Section 232, title II, division A of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, enacted December 16, 2009), Congress authorized HUD to add three agencies to the MTW demonstration. In 2011, Congress again authorized HUD to add three MTW PHAs pursuant to the 2010 Congressional requirements. A Standard MTW Agreement (Standard Agreement) was developed in 2007, and was transmitted to the existing MTW agencies in January, 2008. As additional MTW PHAs were selected they too were provided with the Standard Agreement. All 39 existing MTW agencies operate under this agreement, which authorizes participation in the demonstration through each agency’s 2018 fiscal year. HUD is currently working on an extension of the Standard Agreement to 2028, as required by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016. Under the Standard Agreement, all MTW sites are authorized to combine their operating, modernization and housing choice voucher funding into a single ‘‘block’’ grant. Because they cannot conform with the requirement for the regular PHA annual and 5 year plans, and because HUD requires different information from these PHAs for program oversight purposes, these sites are required to submit an annual PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 MTW Plan and an annual MTW Report in accordance with their MTW Agreement, in lieu of the regular PHA annual and 5 year plans. Through the MTW Annual Plan and Report, each MTW site will inform HUD, its residents and the public of the PHA’s mission for serving the needs of low-income and very low-income families, and the PHA’s strategy for addressing those needs. The MTW Annual Plan, like the Annual PHA Plan, provides an easily identifiable source by which residents, participants in tenantbased programs, and other members of the public may locate policies, rules, and requirements concerning the PHA’s operations, programs, and services. Revisions are being made to this 50900 form to improve its usability and to address minor issues identified by HUD and the MTW PHAs over time. Examples of these minor refinements include: Additional entries in the ‘‘General Information’’ section to improve clarity, elimination of the requirement to submit tables in multiple formats, layout improvements to sections/tables to improve readability, and text corrections to improve term consistency. Respondents: The respondents to this PRA are the 39 Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that currently have the MTW designation. Estimated Number of Respondents: 39. Estimated Number of Responses: 468. There are 7 sections associated with this Form requiring response. All 7 sections are completed with the first annual submission (Plan), and 5 of the 7 are completed with the second annual submission (Report). This results in a total of 12 total responses per PHA, or 468 total responses per year across all 39 affected PHAs. Frequency of Response: MTW PHAs complete requirements associated with this Form twice per year (Plan and Report). In the Plan, the PHA completes all 7 sections of the Form. In the Report, the PHA completes only 5 of the 7 sections of the Form. Average Hours per Response: The estimated average burden is 40.5 hours per response (or 81 total hours per year). Total Estimated Burdens: 4,680 hours. B.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD is 
seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in 
Section A.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Elements for the Annual MTW Plan 
and Annual MTW Report.
    OMB Approval Number: 2577-0216.
    Type of Request: Revision to currently approved collection.
    Form Number: 50900.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: All 
Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are required to submit a five (5) 
Year Plan and Annual Plans as stated in Section 5A of the 1937 Act, as 
amended; however, for PHAs with specific types of Moving to Work (MTW) 
demonstration agreements (39 at the time of submission of this request) 
the Annual MTW Plan and Annual MTW Reports are submitted in lieu of the 
standard annual and 5 year PHA plans.
    The MTW Demonstration was authorized under Section 204 of the 
Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Act of 1996 (Pub. 
L. 104-134, 110 Stat 1321), dated April 26, 1996. The original MTW 
Demonstration statute permitted up to 30 PHAs to participate in the 
demonstration program. Nineteen PHAs were selected for participation in 
the MTW demonstration in response to a HUD Notice published in the 
Federal Register on December 18, 1996 and five of the 30 slots were 
filled through the Jobs-Plus Community Response Initiative.
    Additional MTW `slots' have been added by Congress over time 
through appropriations statutes. Two PHAs were specifically named and 
authorized to join the demonstration in 1999 under the VA, HUD, and 
Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 1999 (Pub. L. 105-276, 112 
Stat. 2461), dated October 21, 1998. A Public and Indian Housing Notice 
(PIH Notice 2000-52) issued December 13, 2000, allowed up to an 
additional 6 PHAs to participate in the MTW demonstration. The 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110-161, 121 Stat. 1844) 
added four named PHAs to the Moving to Work demonstration program.
    Subsequent appropriations acts for 2009, 2010, and 2011 authorized 
a total of 12 additional MTW slots. As part of HUD's 2009 budget 
appropriation (Section 236, title II, division I of the Omnibus 
Appropriations Act, 2009, enacted March 11, 2009), Congress directed 
HUD to add three agencies to the MTW program. As part of HUD's 2010 
budget appropriation (Section 232, title II, division A of the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010, enacted December 16, 2009), 
Congress authorized HUD to add three agencies to the MTW demonstration. 
In 2011, Congress again authorized HUD to add three MTW PHAs pursuant 
to the 2010 Congressional requirements.
    A Standard MTW Agreement (Standard Agreement) was developed in 
2007, and was transmitted to the existing MTW agencies in January, 
2008. As additional MTW PHAs were selected they too were provided with 
the Standard Agreement. All 39 existing MTW agencies operate under this 
agreement, which authorizes participation in the demonstration through 
each agency's 2018 fiscal year. HUD is currently working on an 
extension of the Standard Agreement to 2028, as required by the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016.
    Under the Standard Agreement, all MTW sites are authorized to 
combine their operating, modernization and housing choice voucher 
funding into a single ``block'' grant. Because they cannot conform with 
the requirement for the regular PHA annual and 5 year plans, and 
because HUD requires different information from these PHAs for program 
oversight purposes, these sites are required to submit an annual MTW 
Plan and an annual MTW Report in accordance with their MTW Agreement, 
in lieu of the regular PHA annual and 5 year plans.
    Through the MTW Annual Plan and Report, each MTW site will inform 
HUD, its residents and the public of the PHA's mission for serving the 
needs of low-income and very low-income families, and the PHA's 
strategy for addressing those needs. The MTW Annual Plan, like the 
Annual PHA Plan, provides an easily identifiable source by which 
residents, participants in tenant-based programs, and other members of 
the public may locate policies, rules, and requirements concerning the 
PHA's operations, programs, and services. Revisions are being made to 
this 50900 form to improve its usability and to address minor issues 
identified by HUD and the MTW PHAs over time. Examples of these minor 
refinements include: Additional entries in the ``General Information'' 
section to improve clarity, elimination of the requirement to submit 
tables in multiple formats, layout improvements to sections/tables to 
improve readability, and text corrections to improve term consistency.
    Respondents: The respondents to this PRA are the 39 Public Housing 
Authorities (PHAs) that currently have the MTW designation.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 39.
    Estimated Number of Responses: 468.
    There are 7 sections associated with this Form requiring response. 
All 7 sections are completed with the first annual submission (Plan), 
and 5 of the 7 are completed with the second annual submission 
(Report). This results in a total of 12 total responses per PHA, or 468 
total responses per year across all 39 affected PHAs.
    Frequency of Response: MTW PHAs complete requirements associated 
with this Form twice per year (Plan and Report). In the Plan, the PHA 
completes all 7 sections of the Form. In the Report, the PHA completes 
only 5 of the 7 sections of the Form.
    Average Hours per Response: The estimated average burden is 40.5 
hours per response (or 81 total hours per year).
    Total Estimated Burdens: 4,680 hours.

B. Solicitation of Public Comment

    This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and 
affected parties concerning the collection of information described in 
Section A on the following:
