In accordance with 24 CFR 982.552 and 960.203, the PHA may deny admission to a housing program if the family is not suitable for tenancy for reasons such as, but not limited to: Unacceptable past performance in meeting financial obligations, history of criminal activity, eviction from Federally assisted housing in the last five years, family has committed fraud, bribery, or any other corrupt or criminal act in connection with any Federal housing program, or if a family currently owes rent or other amounts to the PHA or to another PHA in connection with a Federally assisted housing program under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937. Within the scope of this collection of information, HUD seeks to collect from all PHAs, the following information: 1. If applicable, amount of debt owed by a former tenant to a PHA; 2. If applicable, indication of executed repayment agreement; 3. If applicable, indication of bankruptcy filing; 4.

This national 57461 repository is available within the EIV system for all PHAs to access during the time of application for rental assistance. PHAs are able to access this information to determine a family’s suitability for rental assistance, and avoid providing limited Federal housing assistance to families who have previously been unable to comply with HUD program requirements. If this information is not collected, the Department is at risk of paying limited Federal dollars on behalf of families who may not be eligible to receive rental housing assistance. Furthermore, if this information is not collected, the public will perceive that there are no consequences for a family’s failure to comply with HUD program requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 12, 2019 (84 FR 8888), HUD initiated the process to renew approval of information collection 2502–0005 by publishing a 60-day notice in the Federal Register. HUD’s collection sought a revision to OMB’s approval of 2502–0005 that expired on August 31, 2019. Specifically, the proposed revisions aligned the recertification statements with the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1701, et seq) and clarified HUD requirements. Additionally, the revisions combined multiple statements to reflect statute, regulations and Handbook and sought to remove inapplicable language in statements for Government and Investing lenders or mortgagees. On August 14, 2019 (84 FR 40436), HUD published its 30-day notice requesting OMB approval of this information collection. In addition to its 30-day notice, HUD provided the public the opportunity to review and comment on its FHA Annual Lender Certification through its FHA Office of Single Family Housing ‘‘Drafting Table.’’ https:// www.hud.gov/program_offices/housing/ sfh/SFH_policy_drafts. HUD received positive feedback with minor suggestions regarding the proposed changes to FHA’s Annual Certification. The commenters recommended that HUD: (1) Immediately implement the proposal (2) capitalize the word Sanction to align with the HUD’s Single E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
