Solicitation of Public Comment VerDate Sep<11>2014 targets PHAs with the lowest Public Housing reserves. Funding is allocated to raise PHAs’ reserves to two months of expenses. The calculation that determines this value is outlined in Section 4 of the Shortfall Notice: PIH– 2021–12. Along with the infusion of funds, PHAs create Improvement Plans to improve their financial situation and address financial issues. However, without a Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) approved information collection, it is difficult to monitor the PHAs financial changes and successes in an expeditious way. OMB requested that PIH begin to collect enough information from PHAs to evaluate the efficacy of the program in improving PHA’s financial situation. This PRA information collection is being submitted to improve the effectiveness of the program (through monitoring and risk management) which ultimately helps the PHAs reach sustainable financial success. This PRA information collection will include a short-form Jkt 253001 HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions. C.
