30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: HUD Certified Housing Counselor Registration-Office of Housing Counseling; OMB #2502-0614, 5228-5229 [2020-01556]

Download as PDF lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 5228 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 19 / Wednesday, January 29, 2020 / Notices reporting data for program types other than public housing. HUD Response: REAC has added this unique identifier data element to PIC initially for public housing because PIC already has unit numbers and address information through the building entrances that the units are attached to. It will be created for other program types based on the unit address information provided on the Form50058 MTW Expansion that will be geocoded, so that each unit address will have its own unique identifier. Comment: A commenter stated that without a copy of the Technical Reference Guide (TRG) it is difficult to fully understand what will need to be submitted by MTW Expansion PHAs and what errors are going to be enforced. HUD Response: HUD is currently working to conclude work on the first release for MTW Expansion. As part of this, REAC is working on the TRG and will provide it to the software vendors once it is completed. Comment: A commenter noted that previous listening sessions and conferences had appeared to indicate that the PIC–NG would utilize a single Form-50058 format for all PHAs. HUD Response: Since MTW Expansion PHAs will be the first to use PIC–NG and all other PHAs will not be moved over until some point after that, HUD is not able to move to using a single Form-50058 at this time. Comment: A commenter noted that for consistency with other program codes, the ‘‘Local, Non-Traditional Tenant-Based’’ program code of LN should instead be LT. HUD Response: As mentioned in the previous publication, HUD is utilizing the program codes from the Form-50058 MTW with some exceptions. Since LN is one of the codes on the MTW form, it will be retained on the MTW Expansion form as well. Comment: A commenter expressed concerns about lines for assets and allowances of the Form-50058 MTW Expansion that mention ‘‘annual’’ since those items may be biennial or triennial. HUD Response: HUD clarified this comment with the commenter and confirmed that the form and upgraded PIC system, called PIC–NG, will allow for biennial and triennial recertifications. Line 5i, Date of Last Annual HQS Inspection, was also mentioned during the conversation. We have removed the word annual from this line’s label in response. Comment: A commenter stated that line 8u, Deductions and allowances not reflected above, would be more useful if PHAs could report information with VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Jan 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 more flexibility in other areas of Section 8 of the form and utilize this line for items not addressed elsewhere. Line 8x could then be used to total lines 8e, 8n, 8p, 8s, 8t, and 8u and no change would be needed for line 8y. HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that lines for alternate HAP to owner and alternate prorated tenant rent appeared to be missing from the form in Sections 11 and 12, which would allow HUD to get similar information for alternate rent as is collected for the standard rent calculation. HUD Response: HUD acknowledges that these lines were omitted from the form in error and has added them to the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that lines 11d through 11f are needed to report information on tenants that have ported into a receiving PHA’s jurisdiction after being housed under a tenant-based voucher in the initial PHA’s jurisdiction. HUD Response: HUD acknowledges that these lines were omitted from the form in error and has added them back to the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that if a family can participate in FSS or MTW self-sufficiency, but not both, then both programs should be able to share the family services table in line 17i. HUD Response: HUD clarified this comment with the commenter and stated that a household can participate in both programs. Therefore, separate family services tables are needed to be able to identify which needs are being met through FSS and which are being met through MTW self-sufficiency. Dated: January 10, 2020.
