L. 105–276, 112 Stat. 2518, approved October 21, 1998), and the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA), section 103, which amends the United States Housing Act of 1937.

The purpose of the admission and occupancy policy requirement is to ensure that public housing agencies have written documentation of their respective admission and occupancy policies for both the public and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Public housing authorities must have on hand and available for inspection, policies related to admission and occupancy, to respond to inquiries from tenants, legal-aid services, HUD, and other interested parties informally or through the Freedom of Information Act of policies relating to eligibility for admission and continued occupancy, local preferences, income limitations, and rent determination. HOTMA now requires PHAs to make a one-time update to their Admission and Occupancy policy to apply local over-income limits, and annually report on the number of overincome families living in their public housing units as well as the number of families on the public housing waiting list. Revisions are made to this collection to reflect adjustments in calculations based on the total number of current, active public housing agencies (PHAs) to date. The number of active public housing agencies has changed from 3,946 to 2,897 since the last approved information collection which inadvertently also included voucher only PHAs. In general, the number of PHAs can fluctuate due to many factors, including but not limited to the merging of two or more PHAs or the termination of the public housing programs due to the Rental Assistance Demonstration.

    This collection of information implements changes to the admission 
and occupancy requirements for the public housing program made by the 
Quality Housing and Work Responsibility (QHWRA) Act of 1998 (Title V of 
the FY 1999 HUD appropriations Act, Pub. L. 105-276, 112 Stat. 2518,

Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA), section 103, which amends the United 
States Housing Act of 1937. Both QHWRA and HOTMA made comprehensive 
changes to HUD's public housing program. These changes include defining 
an `over-income family' as one having an annual income 120 percent 
above the median income for the area for two consecutive years and 
includes new mandatory annual reporting requirements on the number of
