Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Public Housing Authority Executive Compensation Information
Document Number: 2013-07517
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-04-01
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. HUD is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. Pursuant to PIH Notice 2011-48, HUD has been collecting information on the compensation provided by public housing authorities (PHAs) to their five most highly compensated employees, similar to the information that nonprofit organizations receiving federal tax exemptions are required to report to the IRS annually. Since PHAs receive significant direct federal funds, such compensation information has been collected by HUD to enhance oversight by HUD and by state and local authorities. After HUD began this information collection, Congress included a provision in its fiscal year 2012 appropriations legislation that placed a specific cap on the use of Section 8 and Section 9 funds to pay the salaries of PHA officials. To obtain information that will help HUD determine PHA compliance with this and future legislation, and to achieve the same overall objectives of the original information collection, HUD is revising the data collection instrument to collect information on base salary, and bonus and incentive compensation, and the extent to which such payments are made with federal funds. Changes include obtaining data on total cash compensation paid for with Section 8 and Section 9 funds. The new elements replace several segments such as ``Reportable Compensation from PHA and Related Organizations'' and ``Contributions to Employee Benefit Plans and Deferred Compensation from the PHA and Related Organizations and ``Contributions to Employee Benefit Plans and Deferred Compensation from the PHA and Related Organizations''.

Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing: Rural Housing Stability Assistance Program and Revisions to the Definition of “Chronically Homeless”
Document Number: 2013-06521
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-03-27
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act), enacted into law on May 20, 2009, consolidates three of the separate homeless assistance programs administered by HUD under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act into a single Continuum of Care program, revises the Emergency Shelter Grants program and renames this program the Emergency Solutions Grants program, and creates the Rural Housing Stability Assistance program to replace the Rural Homelessness Grant program. The HEARTH Act also directs HUD to promulgate regulations for these new programs and processes. This proposed rule would provide for the establishment of regulations to implement the new Rural Housing Stability Assistance program. In addition to proposing the regulatory framework for the new Rural Housing Stability Assistance program, this rule also proposes to establish a definition for ``chronically homeless'' that includes a definition of ``homeless occasion'' that better targets persons with the longest histories of homelessness and the highest level of need.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB: Low Income Housing Tax Credit Database

The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. HUD is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. Section 2835(d) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, or HERA, (Pub.

(1937 Act) to add a new section 36 (to be codified as 42 U.S.C. 1437z-8) that requires each state agency administering tax credits under section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (low-income housing tax credits or LIHTC) to furnish HUD, not less than annually, information concerning the race, ethnicity, family composition, age, income, use of rental assistance under section 8(o) of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937 or other similar assistance, disability status, and monthly rental payments of households residing in each property receiving such credits through such agency. New section 36 requires HUD to establish standards and definitions for the information to be collected by state agencies and to provide states with technical assistance in establishing systems to compile and submit such information and, in coordination with other federal agencies administering housing programs, establish procedures to minimize duplicative reporting requirements for properties assisted under multiple housing programs. In 2010, OMB approved the first collection instrument used for the collection of LIHTC household information (OMB Approval No. 2528-0165, expiration date 05/31/2013). HUD used the previously approved form to collect data on LIHTC tenants in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Renewal of this form is required for HUD to remain in compliance with the statute.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB: Community Development Block Grant Recovery (CDBG-R) Program
Document Number: 2013-05085
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-05
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This request identifies the estimated reporting burden associated with the reporting of CDBG-R assisted activities as they are completed and closing out the CDBG-R program. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) appropriated $1 Billion in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to states and local governments that received CDBG funding in Fiscal Year 2008 to carry out, on an expedited basis, eligible activities under the CDBG program. The purpose of the CDBG-R funding was to stimulate the economy through measures that modernized the Nation's infrastructure, improved energy efficiency, and expanded educational opportunities and access to health care. All CDBG-R funds were required to be expended by September 30, 2012. Any CDBG-R funds remaining after that date were recaptured by HUD and returned to Treasury. The Recovery Act did not specify a requirement regarding the date for completion of CDBG-R assisted activities, although grantees were required to give preference to activities that could be started and completed expeditiously. While the CDBG-R expenditure deadline has passed, all CDBG-R assisted activities have not been completed. New activities were added over time when grantees amended their 2008 substantial amendments to add such activities because previously identified activities came in under budget, were identified as imprudent, or did not meet the purposes of the Recovery Act. Once CDBG-R assisted activities meet a national objective and are physically complete, grantees may proceed in closing out their CDBG-R programs. Grantees must complete their final reports in federalreporting.gov before closing out their CDBG-R grants. HUD expects grantees to be ready to begin closing out their grants by March 31, 2013. Once final reports are completed in federalreporting.gov, grantees may begin the process of closing out their CDBG-R grants. This process requires grantees to submit their final federalreporting.gov report and prepare and submit a CDBG-R Program Grantee Closeout Certification, a CDBG-R closeout checklist, Grant Closeout Agreement, and a Federal Financial Report (SF 425) to local HUD Field Offices. The Recovery Act requires that not later than 10 days after the end of each calendar quarter, each recipient that received recovery funds from a federal agency shall submit a report to that agency that contains: (1) The total amount of recovery funds received from that agency; (2) the amount of recovery funds received that were expended or obligated to projects or activities; and (3) a detailed list of all projects or activities for which recovery funds were expended or obligated, including (A) the name of the project or activity; (B) a description of the project or activity; (C) an evaluation of the completion status of the project or activity; (D) an estimate of the number of jobs created and the number of jobs retained by the project or activity; and (E) for infrastructure investments made by State and local governments, the purpose, total cost, and rationale of the agency for funding the infrastructure investment with funds made available under the Recovery Act and name of the person to contact at the agency if there are concerns with the infrastructure investment. An update of the status of activities identified here must be reported quarterly in federalreporting.gov. In addition, not later than 30 calendar days after the end of each calendar quarter, each agency that made Recovery Act funds available to any recipient shall make the information in reports submitted publicly available by posting the information on a Web site. Grantees that have ongoing CDBG-R assisted activities are required to continue reporting quarterly on those activities until they are completed. Information must be submitted using HUD's IDIS system and in federalreporting.gov. Pursuant to Section 1512 of the Recovery Act, CDBG-R grantees must enter the data into IDIS on a quarterly basis for generation of reports by HUD or other entities. In addition, grantees are required to submit reports in federalreporting.gov on a quarterly basis. Grantees will report in IDIS and federalreporting.gov for CDBG-R assisted activities, recordkeeping requirements, and reporting requirements. The Recovery Act imposes additional reporting requirements including, but not limited to, information on the environmental review process, the expected completion of the activity, the type of activity, and the location of the activity.

L. 105-276, 112 Stat. 2518, approved October 21, 1998), which amended the United States Housing Act of 1937. QHWRA made comprehensive changes to HUD's public housing, Section 8 programs. Some of the changes made by the 1998 Act (i.e., QHWRA) affect public housing only and others affect the Section 8 and public housing programs. These changes cover choice of rent, community service and self-sufficiency in public housing; and admission preferences and determination of income and rent in public housing and Section 8 housing assistance programs.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB: FHA Insured Mortgage Loan Servicing Involving the Loss Mitigation Programs
Document Number: 2013-05075
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-05
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. FHA insurance is an important source of mortgage credit for low and moderate-income borrowers and neighborhoods. Providing assistance, as needed, to enable families to cure their delinquencies and retain their homes stabilizes neighborhoods that might otherwise suffer from deterioration and problems associated with vacant and abandoned properties. Avoidance of foreclosure and the resultant costs also serve to further stabilize the mortgage insurance premiums charged by FHA and the Federal budget receipts generated from those premiums. The information collection request for OMB review seeks to extend OMB 2502- 0589, a currently established OMB collection, for an additional three years. Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-1 Settlement Statement, HUD-27011 Single Family Application for Insurance Benefits, HUD-90035 Information/Disclosure, HUD-90041 Request for Variance, Pre-foreclosure sale procedure, HUD-90045 Approval to Participate, HUD-90051 Sale Contract Review, HUD-90052 Closing Worksheet, HUD-PA-426 How to Avoid Foreclosure.
