The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on October 11, 2017 at 82 FR 47236. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Agencies Service Areas Solicitation of Comments. OMB Approval Number: 2577-New. Type of Request: New Collection. Form Number: Interactive Geospatial tool currently under development and will be available upon completion. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD proposes to use the following information collection methodology to gather Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) service area boundaries. An interactive geospatial tool will be provided by HUD for PHAs to access online. Through this online tool, HUD will present PHAs with estimates of their service area boundaries based on the locations of the PHA’s public housing units and Housing Choice Vouchers in relation to Units of General Local Government. PHAs will be provided an opportunity to revise HUD’s initial estimates using the online tool. The online, interactive tool will provide PHAs with the ability to designate boundaries that more accurately reflect their actual service areas under state and local law. PHAs will be able to do so by identifying Units of General Local Government boundaries that more closely reflect their actual service areas. The United States Housing Act of 1937 (1937 Act) in Section 3(b)(6) PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6209 defines a Public Housing Agency, in part, as: ‘‘Except as provided in subparagraph (b), . . . any State, county, municipality, or other governmental entity or public body (or agency or instrumentality thereof) which is authorized to engage in or assist in the development or operation of public housing.’’ 42 U.S.C. 1437a. The section includes additional provisions related to PHAs operating Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. The 1937 Act therefore includes a reference to applicable state and local laws that PHAs operate pursuant to. HUD’s regulations, at 24 CFR 982.4, defines a PHA’s Jurisdiction as, ‘‘the area in which the PHA has authority under State and local law to administer the program.’’ HUD is proposing an information collection regarding PHAs’ applicable jurisdictions, also known as service areas, in which they are authorized to operate under state and local law. Through the online tool, HUD will present PHAs with estimates of their service area boundaries, based on the locations of the PHA’s public housing unit and Housing Choice Vouchers in relation to Units of General Local Government. HUD is aware that these initial estimates may not reflect the PHA’s defined service area in accordance with State and local law, therefore, PHAs will be provided an opportunity to revise HUD’s initial estimates using the online tool. When revising HUD’s estimates, PHAs will be instructed to include in their revisions the areas in which they are authorized to operate under state and local law, not only the areas in which they currently operate. This means including areas that the PHA may have no public housing developments or HCVs, but where the PHA could operate those programs. If the PHA believes that HUD’s estimate of its service area is accurate, the PHA will be asked to validate or accept HUD’s estimation within the online tool. The information collection described in this Notice will use an online electronic methodology intended to reduce administrative costs for PHAs and the federal government. The information obtained through this information collection is intended to assist in HUD program operations and in providing data to HUD’s program participants, stakeholders, and the. Collecting PHA service area boundaries in a simple electronic format will aid in the provision of data that can be used in conducting the statement of housing needs assessments as required by the PHA Annual Plan pursuant to 24 CFR 903.7. The information will be used by HUD to provide data to PHAs for use E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1
