Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD previously amended this information collection to consolidate all information that PHAs are required to submit to HUD in connection with their contractual duties to operate and remove public housing dwelling units and other real property under the United States Housing Act of 1937 (1937 Act) (42 U.S.C § 1437g).

The Secretary is required to embody the provisions for such payments in an agreement (i.e., ACC). The purpose of the ACC is to establish the grant agreement between each Public Housing Agency (PHA) and HUD. The ACC establishes the basic terms and conditions for the PHA’s public housing program and requires the PHA to manage and operate all of its public housing properties in accordance with the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 and all applicable HUD Requirements. This collection amends this ACC document by merging the current HUD–53012–A and HUD–53012–B forms into one document and adding requirements applicable to mixed-finance public housing development and making minor clarifications and updates, based on applicable statutes and regulations, on the contractual agreement.

This collection makes a small change to the Notice provision of the GDA to require VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Sep 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 that notice be implemented by the Depository within 24 hours of receipt.

The purpose of the Inventory Removal Application (HUD– 52860) is to ensure PHAs comply with the statutory and regulatory requirements when removing public housing projects and other real property subsidized by HUD from their inventory through various programs, including Sections 18, 22, 33, 32 of the 1937 Act and eminent domain settlement agreements and retentions under 2 CFR 200.311.

This collection makes formatting and instructional changes and refers users to the applicable HUD notice for more guidance. Homeownership Addendum (HUD– 52860–C). This information is required for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose a homeownership program under 24 CFR part 906. This collection makes formatting, instructional and other changes to provide clearer direction and to ensure PHAs are fully complying with the requirements of 24 CFR part 906. Required Conversion Addendum (HUD–52860–D). This information is required for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose a required conversion under 24 CFR 972-Subpart A.

Such removal may be through any available law or HUD program, which may include Sections 18, 22, 33, 32 of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 or the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program). This form will alert HUD about its future plans for either termination of the public housing ACC or development of new dwelling units. HUD will use this information to provide targeted technical assistance, to ensure HUD has an accurate database of federal public housing inventory and assets, and to monitor PHA compliance with the ACC and applicable federal laws and regulations. Capital Fund Program Amendment to the ACC (HUD–52840–A). This form amends a PHA’s ACC each time HUD provides Capital Fund Program (CFP) assistance to a PHA for capital and management activities of PHA developments. This collection amends this form to change its format from PDF/ Word to Excel only.

Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The information collection burden associated with designated housing is required by statute.

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.

between each Public Housing Agency (PHA) and HUD. The ACC establishes 
the basic terms and conditions for the PHA's public housing program and 
requires the PHA to manage and operate all of its public housing 
properties in accordance with the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 and all 
applicable HUD Requirements. This collection amends this ACC document 
by merging the current HUD-53012-A and HUD-53012-B forms into one 
document and adding requirements applicable to mixed-finance public 
housing development and making minor clarifications and updates, based 
on applicable statutes and regulations, on the contractual agreement.
    Declaration of Trust (DOT) (HUD-51290). The purpose of the 
Declaration of Trust (DOT) is to require PHA's to remain seized of the 
title of public housing projects and other real property and to refrain 
from transferring, conveying, assigning, leasing, mortgaging, pledging, 
or otherwise encumbering or permitting or suffering any transfer, 
conveyance, assignment, lease, mortgage, pledge or other encumbrance of 
said property or any part thereof, appurtenances thereto, or any rent, 
revenues, income, or receipts therefrom or in connection therewith, or 
any of the benefits or contributions granted to it by or pursuant to 
the ACC. This collection amends this ACC document by merging the 
current HUD-51290-A (development) and HUD-51290-B (modernization) 
forms, into one document, as well as adding the Declaration of 
Restrictive Covenants (DORC) document for mixed-finance public housing 
developments into one form.
    General Depository Agreement (GDA) (HUD-51999). The purpose of the 
General Depository Agreement (GDA) is to ensure PHAs use all program 
receipts received from HUD or otherwise associated with public housing 
funds for purposes of public housing, by requiring such financial 
assistance to be deposited into interest-bearing accounts at financial 
institutions whose deposits or accounts are insured by the Federal 
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or the National Credit Union Share 
Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). This collection makes a small change to the 
Notice provision of the GDA to require that notice be implemented by 
the Depository within 24 hours of receipt. The GDA is an agreement 
between the PHA and the Depository and establishes the terms and 
conditions dictating the investment policies for the PHAs deposits.
    Inventory Removal Application (HUD-52860). The purpose of the 
Inventory Removal Application (HUD-52860) is to ensure PHAs comply with 
the statutory and regulatory requirements when removing public housing 
projects and other real property subsidized by HUD from their inventory 
through various programs, including Sections 18, 22, 33, 32 of the 1937 
Act and eminent domain settlement agreements and retentions under 2 CFR 
200.311. This application and approval process also ensures an accurate 
and up-to-date building and unit count for the PHA. HUD uses the PHA's 
inventory of buildings and units for various purposes, such as funding 
and property inspections. This collection modifies this form to make it 
a better-tailored ``global'' form that applies to all removal actions. 
It is required in addition to the addendum related to the specific 
removal program.
    Demolition/Disposition Addendum (HUD-52860-A). This collection adds 
this new addendum to specifically address the requirements of 24 CFR 
part 970 for demolition and disposition removals. These requirements 
were previously included in the global HUD-52860.
    Total Development Cost (TDC) and Rehab Cost Estimate Addendum (HUD-
52860-B). This information is required for all Inventory Removal 
Applications that propose a demolition under 24 CFR 970.15 or a 
disposition under 24 CFR 970.17 based on physical obsolescence. This 
collection makes formatting and instructional changes and refers users 
to the applicable HUD notice for more guidance.
    Homeownership Addendum (HUD-52860-C). This information is required 
for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose a homeownership 
program under 24 CFR part 906. This collection makes formatting, 
instructional and other changes to provide clearer direction and to 
ensure PHAs are fully complying with the requirements of 24 CFR part 
906.
    Required Conversion Addendum (HUD-52860-D). This information is 
required for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose a required 
conversion under 24 CFR 972-Subpart A. This collection makes minor 
formatting, instructional and other changes to provide clearer 
direction and to ensure PHAs are fully complying with the requirements 
of 24 CFR part 972 Subpart-A.
    Voluntary Conversion Addendum (HUD-52860-E). This information is 
required for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose a required 
conversion under 24 CFR 972-Subpart B. This collection makes minor 
formatting, instructional and other changes to provide clearer 
direction and to ensure PHAs are fully complying with the requirements 
of 24 CFR part 972 Subpart-B.
    Eminent Domain Addendum (HUD-52860-F). This information is required 
for all Inventory Removal Applications that propose settlement 
agreement (in lieu of court proceedings) for public housing projects 
and other public housing property that taking entity proposes to 
condemn through eminent domain proceedings under applicable state law. 
This collection makes minor formatting, instructional and other changes 
to provide clearer direction and to ensure PHAs are fully complying 
with the requirements of PIH Notice 2012-8.
    Retention Addendum (HUD-52860-G). This collection adds a new form 
that applies to PHAs who are requesting to retain certain public 
housing property in accordance with 2 CFR 200.311(c) and PIH Notice 
2016-20.
    Notification of Closeout or Future Public Housing Development (HUD-
5837). This collection adds a new form that applies to PHAs who are 
intending to remove all dwelling units in their portfolio from their 
inventory. This is notification to HUD of a PHA's intention to either 
closeout from the public housing program or develop new public housing 
units. Such removal may be through any available law or HUD program, 
which may include Sections 18, 22, 33, 32 of the U.S. Housing Act of 
1937 or the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program). This form 
will alert HUD about its future plans for either termination of the 
public housing ACC or development of new dwelling units. HUD will use 
this information to provide targeted technical assistance, to ensure 
HUD has an accurate database of federal public housing inventory and 
assets, and to monitor PHA compliance with the ACC and applicable 
federal laws and regulations.
    Capital Fund Program Amendment to the ACC (HUD-52840-A). This form 
amends a PHA's ACC each time HUD provides Capital Fund Program (CFP) 
assistance to a PHA for capital and management activities of PHA 
developments. This collection amends this form to change its format 
from PDF/Word to Excel only.
