Agencies selected as part of the MTW expansion must be high performers, meet certain site selection requirements as described below, and represent geographic diversity across the country. The key principles for the expansion of the MTW demonstration are to: Simplify, learn, and apply. The vision for the MTW expansion is to learn from MTW interventions in order to improve the delivery of federally assisted housing and promote self-sufficiency for low-income families across the nation. In developing the framework for the MTW expansion, HUD will balance the deregulation desired by the industry SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with the need for a strong evaluative component. Certain MTW flexibilities will be provided to all new MTW PHAs when they are designated. Other MTW flexibilities will only be available to specific cohorts, depending on which policy will be tested and evaluated by that cohort. In order to inform the MTW expansion, HUD published a Notice to solicit feedback on the policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation in the Federal Register on April 4, 2016 (81 FR 19233) and anticipates posting a summary of the comments on its Web site in Spring 2016. Today’s Federal Register Notice announces the establishment of the Committee, as described below, and HUD plans to hold two conference calls with the Committee throughout this Summer, and will have one in-person meeting in late-Summer 2016. HUD plans to post a Notice to solicit applications for the first cohort of the MTW Expansion in the Fall of 2016. This Notice will include all of the policies to be studied throughout the MTW expansion. The initial cohort of new MTW PHAs will be announced in the Spring/Summer 2017, and additional cohorts will be added through 2020 through additional notices. Background and Authority for the Committee: Establishment of the Committee implements a statutory requirement of Public Law 114–113. The Committee is governed by the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2), which sets forth standards for the formation and use of advisory committees. The Committee shall advise HUD on specific policy proposals and methods of research and evaluation related to the expansion of the MTW demonstration to an additional 100 high-performing PHAs. The Committee shall advise HUD, at the request of the Secretary, on the following: Specific policy proposals and evaluation methods for the MTW demonstration; rigorous research methodologies that will effectively E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1
