Overview of Significant Changes Made to the Form-50058 MTW Expansion The following represents the most notable changes to the Form-50058 MTW Expansion. However, other changes may have also been made which may not be identified below. The PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Form-50058 MTW Expansion should be reviewed in its entirety to determine the exact nature and scope of these revisions. A copy of the revised Form50058 MTW Expansion can be obtained per the information provided earlier in this notice under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, or on the HUD Moving to Work website at https://www.hud.gov/ mtw. • The response codes for line 2w, End of Participation reasons, were updated to reflect feedback from commenters. • Line 2x, Interim Reexamination reasons, was added to allow HUD to know why a PHA is using action type 3, Interim Reexamination. This includes changes associated with rent hardship requests and stepped rents. • Line 3r, Average number of hours worked per week, was one of two lines E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1 lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 19 / Wednesday, January 29, 2020 / Notices added to this section of the form to assist with capturing information about work requirements. • Line 3s, Work requirement compliance, is the second line that was added in this section to assist with capturing information about work requirements. • Line 5i, Date of last Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection, was updated to remove the word ‘‘annual’’ from the label since PHAs may perform inspections at intervals other than annual (e.g., biennial). • Line 7h, Prior year or current year/ anticipated income, replaces the line 7h that was previously marked as ‘‘Reserved’’. This line was added to capture whether a PHA is reporting prior year or current year/anticipated income for the household. The prior year provision is in the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA) and, while all PHAs will need to complete it, PHAs in cohort 2 that will study rent reform may also need to reflect ‘‘prior year’’ income is being used. • The title of Section 8 of the form was changed from ‘‘Expected Income Per Year’’ to ‘‘Deductions and Allowances’’ to better reflect the content of the section. This change is cosmetic and does not affect submission of data to the PIH Information Center (PIC). • Line 8u, Deductions and allowances not reflected above, was changed to clarify that it will capture any deductions and allowances not captured on other lines above this line in this section. It is still intended to also be used for Local, Non-Traditional Property-Based and Local, NonTraditional Tenant-Based programs. • Line 8x, Total allowances, was updated to reflect that line 8u will be used in the calculation to determine the value for this line. • Line 8y, Adjusted annual income, has been changed so that it is now the same as the Form-50058. • Lines 10u, 11u, 11ap, 12x, and 12ak were updated to reflect the updated response code labels for the MTW alternate rent types so that it is clearer that they are for MTW. This will also make it clearer when looking at the data in reports, etc. • Lines 11d, 11e, and 11f for projectbased voucher (PBV) portability have been restored to the form. They are to be used to reflect that a household that was a tenant-based voucher (TBV) participant at the initial PHA has ported to the receiving PHA and received a PBV. • Lines 11v and 12y, Alternate HAP to owner, had been omitted and have been added to collect this information VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Jan 28, 2020 Jkt 250001 when one of the alternate rent types is utilized. • Lines 11w and 12z, Alternate tenant rent, were updated to change the word ‘‘or’’ to ‘‘including’’ to clarify that they will be completed when a selection is made in 11u and when the program type is Local, Non-Traditional PropertyBased and Local, Non-Traditional Tenant-Based. • Lines 11ar and 12an, Alternate prorated tenant rent, had been omitted and have been added to collect this information when one of the alternate rent types is utilized. • Line 12ap, Additional financial support for tenant-based voucher family, and line 12aq, Financial incentive for property owner, were added to assist in data collection when landlord incentives are utilized. E. Summary of Form-50058 MTW Expansion Comments and HUD Responses Comment: A commenter stated that HUD needs to be able to track rent hardship requests, especially, but not necessarily limited to, the MTW Expansion cohort 2 PHAs, which will evaluate rent reform. Further, HUD needs to be able to track stepped rent increases. HUD Response: HUD has added line 2x, Interim Reexamination reasons, and has identified ‘‘Alternate rent hardship request’’ and ‘‘Stepped rent update without income reexamination’’ as two of the response codes. Other common reasons for the action type of Interim Reexaminations were also provided. Comment: Commenters encouraged HUD to further refine the End of Participation reason response codes so that they are more accurate and eliminate the overlap among some of the reasons in the initial list. HUD Response: HUD worked with existing MTW PHAs and internally with PD&R (Policy Development and Research) and has updated the list of response codes on the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that PHAs need to be able to reflect if prior year or current year income is entered on the form. It was stated that this MTW Expansion cohort 2 PHAs may need this and that it is also referred to in HOTMA. HUD Response: HUD has incorporated this change into the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that in order to track information about households subject to a work requirement, HUD should add data elements for average number of hours worked per week, over the past year, PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5227 and for household compliance with a PHA’s work requirement policy. HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter stated that in order to track information about landlord incentives, HUD should add data elements for additional financial support for tenant-based voucher families and financial incentive for property owner. HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter suggested clarifying the labels for the MTW alternate rent types listed Sections 10, 11, and 12 of the form so that it is clearer that they are tied to the MTW program. HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised draft of the form. Comment: A commenter expressed concern about the required data collection for Local, Non-Traditional Tenant-Based and Local, NonTraditional Property-Based assistance. They were concerned about the ability to be able to submit this data due to the different types of local, non-traditional programs that exist and the administrative burden it could cause to PHAs and partner agencies to try to collect and submit this data on the Form-50058 MTW Expansion. Finally, the commenter stated that partner agencies may already be submitting data in other HUD systems. HUD Response: HUD understands the concerns expressed; however, due to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) audit finding HUD must begin to collect data for households assisted through local, non-traditional activities. HUD will ensure flexibilities are built into the PIC system so that an agency will be able to provide the information they do have but will not receive fatal errors for information that cannot be provided. Comment: A commenter stated that current MTW agencies continue to experience issues with submitting Form-50058 MTW data to PIC, specifically with the system not identifying the source of an error and recommend changes be made to the system so that this information will be known. HUD Response: PIH is working with REAC (Real Estate Assessment Center) to ensure that the upgrade to PIC includes this information. Comment: A commenter asked for clarification on line 1h, Unit Real Estate ID Number, and how it will affect E:\FR\FM\29JAN1.SGM 29JAN1 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.

D. Overview of Significant Changes Made to the Form-50058 MTW Expansion

    The following represents the most notable changes to the Form-50058 
MTW Expansion. However, other changes may have also been made which may 
not be identified below. The Form-50058 MTW Expansion should be 
reviewed in its entirety to determine the exact nature and scope of 
these revisions. A copy of the revised Form-50058 MTW Expansion can be 
obtained per the information provided earlier in this notice under For 
further information, or on the HUD Moving to Work website at https://www.hud.gov/mtw.
     The response codes for line 2w, End of Participation 
reasons, were updated to reflect feedback from commenters.
     Line 2x, Interim Reexamination reasons, was added to allow 
HUD to know why a PHA is using action type 3, Interim Reexamination. 
This includes changes associated with rent hardship requests and 
stepped rents.
     Line 3r, Average number of hours worked per week, was one 
of two lines

[[Page 5227]]

added to this section of the form to assist with capturing information 
about work requirements.
     Line 3s, Work requirement compliance, is the second line 
that was added in this section to assist with capturing information 
about work requirements.
     Line 5i, Date of last Housing Quality Standards (HQS) 
inspection, was updated to remove the word ``annual'' from the label 
since PHAs may perform inspections at intervals other than annual 
(e.g., biennial).
     Line 7h, Prior year or current year/anticipated income, 
replaces the line 7h that was previously marked as ``Reserved''. This 
line was added to capture whether a PHA is reporting prior year or 
current year/anticipated income for the household. The prior year 
provision is in the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 
2016 (HOTMA) and, while all PHAs will need to complete it, PHAs in 
cohort 2 that will study rent reform may also need to reflect ``prior 
year'' income is being used.
     The title of Section 8 of the form was changed from 
``Expected Income Per Year'' to ``Deductions and Allowances'' to better 
reflect the content of the section. This change is cosmetic and does 
not affect submission of data to the PIH Information Center (PIC).
     Line 8u, Deductions and allowances not reflected above, 
was changed to clarify that it will capture any deductions and 
allowances not captured on other lines above this line in this section. 
It is still intended to also be used for Local, Non-Traditional 
Property-Based and Local, Non-Traditional Tenant-Based programs.
     Line 8x, Total allowances, was updated to reflect that 
line 8u will be used in the calculation to determine the value for this 
line.
     Line 8y, Adjusted annual income, has been changed so that 
it is now the same as the Form-50058.
     Lines 10u, 11u, 11ap, 12x, and 12ak were updated to 
reflect the updated response code labels for the MTW alternate rent 
types so that it is clearer that they are for MTW. This will also make 
it clearer when looking at the data in reports, etc.
     Lines 11d, 11e, and 11f for project-based voucher (PBV) 
portability have been restored to the form. They are to be used to 
reflect that a household that was a tenant-based voucher (TBV) 
participant at the initial PHA has ported to the receiving PHA and 
received a PBV.
     Lines 11v and 12y, Alternate HAP to owner, had been 
omitted and have been added to collect this information when one of the 
alternate rent types is utilized.
     Lines 11w and 12z, Alternate tenant rent, were updated to 
change the word ``or'' to ``including'' to clarify that they will be 
completed when a selection is made in 11u and when the program type is 
Local, Non-Traditional Property-Based and Local, Non-Traditional 
Tenant-Based.
     Lines 11ar and 12an, Alternate prorated tenant rent, had 
been omitted and have been added to collect this information when one 
of the alternate rent types is utilized.
     Line 12ap, Additional financial support for tenant-based 
voucher family, and line 12aq, Financial incentive for property owner, 
were added to assist in data collection when landlord incentives are 
utilized.

E. Summary of Form-50058 MTW Expansion Comments and HUD Responses

    Comment: A commenter stated that HUD needs to be able to track rent 
hardship requests, especially, but not necessarily limited to, the MTW 
Expansion cohort 2 PHAs, which will evaluate rent reform. Further, HUD 
needs to be able to track stepped rent increases.
    HUD Response: HUD has added line 2x, Interim Reexamination reasons, 
and has identified ``Alternate rent hardship request'' and ``Stepped 
rent update without income reexamination'' as two of the response 
codes. Other common reasons for the action type of Interim 
Reexaminations were also provided.
    Comment: Commenters encouraged HUD to further refine the End of 
Participation reason response codes so that they are more accurate and 
eliminate the overlap among some of the reasons in the initial list.
    HUD Response: HUD worked with existing MTW PHAs and internally with 
PD&R (Policy Development and Research) and has updated the list of 
response codes on the revised draft of the form.
    Comment: A commenter stated that PHAs need to be able to reflect if 
prior year or current year income is entered on the form. It was stated 
that this MTW Expansion cohort 2 PHAs may need this and that it is also 
referred to in HOTMA.
    HUD Response: HUD has incorporated this change into the revised 
draft of the form.
    Comment: A commenter stated that in order to track information 
about households subject to a work requirement, HUD should add data 
elements for average number of hours worked per week, over the past 
year, and for household compliance with a PHA's work requirement 
policy.
    HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised 
draft of the form.
    Comment: A commenter stated that in order to track information 
about landlord incentives, HUD should add data elements for additional 
financial support for tenant-based voucher families and financial 
incentive for property owner.
    HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised 
draft of the form.
    Comment: A commenter suggested clarifying the labels for the MTW 
alternate rent types listed Sections 10, 11, and 12 of the form so that 
it is clearer that they are tied to the MTW program.
    HUD Response: HUD has incorporated these changes into the revised 
draft of the form.
    Comment: A commenter expressed concern about the required data 
collection for Local, Non-Traditional Tenant-Based and Local, Non-
Traditional Property-Based assistance. They were concerned about the 
ability to be able to submit this data due to the different types of 
local, non-traditional programs that exist and the administrative 
burden it could cause to PHAs and partner agencies to try to collect 
and submit this data on the Form-50058 MTW Expansion. Finally, the 
commenter stated that partner agencies may already be submitting data 
in other HUD systems.
    HUD Response: HUD understands the concerns expressed; however, due 
to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) audit finding HUD must 
begin to collect data for households assisted through local, non-
traditional activities. HUD will ensure flexibilities are built into 
the PIC system so that an agency will be able to provide the 
information they do have but will not receive fatal errors for 
information that cannot be provided.
    Comment: A commenter stated that current MTW agencies continue to 
experience issues with submitting Form-50058 MTW data to PIC, 
specifically with the system not identifying the source of an error and 
recommend changes be made to the system so that this information will 
be known.
    HUD Response: PIH is working with REAC (Real Estate Assessment 
Center) to ensure that the upgrade to PIC includes this information.
    Comment: A commenter asked for clarification on line 1h, Unit Real 
Estate ID Number, and how it will affect

[[Page 5228]]

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 Form-50058 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 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.
