60-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Exigent Health and Safety Deficiency Correction Certification; OMB Control No.: 2577-0241, 55313-55314 [2020-19609]

Download as PDF 55313 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 173 / Friday, September 4, 2020 / Notices address minor issues identified by HUD and the MTW PHAs over time, including the following: 1. Simplification of information submitted annually by the PHA. 2. Clarification and reimagining of the information to be reported, annually, that will lead to the ability to ‘‘tell the story’’ of the Moving to Work demonstration as a whole. 3. Addition of language regarding unspent Operating and Voucher Reserves to increase the transparency locally and the planned use of the funds. 4. Support and increase local communities’ knowledge and understanding of the MTW Program by requiring the inclusion of the PHA’s Hardship Policy as an appendix to the MTW Annual Plan. Program information Respondents HUD is very interested in feedback from the interested stakeholders, MTW PHAs, and the community on this Form 50900 and the proposed revisions as presented. Respondents: The respondents to this PRA are the 39 Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) that had MTW designation as of December 15, 2015 and potential applicants that may be submitting applications to participate in the program. Estimated Number of Respondents: The estimated number of respondents is 39. Estimated Number of Responses: There are 78 submissions per year, reflecting the 39 PHAs. Each submission is comprised of 7 sections each requiring a response. All 7 sections are completed with the first annual Annual responses per respondent Total responses per year Burden per year per respondent submission (Plan), and 5 of the 7 sections are completed with the second annual submission (Report). This results in a total of 2 submissions per PHA, across all 39 affected PHAs or 78 total responses, that include 468 sections. Frequency of Response: MTW PHAs complete requirements associated with this Form twice per year (Plan and Report). In the Plan, the PHA completes each of the 7 sections of the Form. In the Report, the PHA completes only 5 of the 7 sections of the Form. Average Hours per Response: The estimated average burden is 40.5 hours per response (or 81 total hours per year). Total Estimated Burdens: The total estimated burdens are 81, given each PHA completes the form twice per year (Plan and Report).
