Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The information collection burden associated with designated housing is required by statute. Section 10 of the Housing Opportunity and Extension Act of 1996 modified Section 7 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 to require Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) to submit a plan for designation for HUD approval before a project(s) can be designated as either elderly only, disabled only, or elderly and disabled. In this plan, PHAs must document why the designation is needed and provide the following information: 1. Description of the designated housing plan; 2. Justification for the designation; 3. Availability of alternative housing resources for the non-designated population(s); 4. Impact on the availability of accessible housing; 5. A statement that existing tenants in good standing will not be evicted; 6. A statement of the resources that will be made available if the PHA offers voluntary relocation benefits; and 7.

Respondents (i.e. affected public): State, or Local Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 39. Estimated Number of Responses: 1. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Average Hours per Response: 15 hours. Total Estimated Burdens: 585 hours. The previous estimation of 375 annual burden hours has been increased to 585. This change is based on the number of Plans submitted in Calendar Year 2016, and the expectation that the number of respondents will continue to increase based on the upward trend in senior demographics and the increased use of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to finance mixed developments that include senior units by Public Housing Agencies (PHAs).
