A. Overview of Information Collection

  • Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Capital Fund Program.
     
  • OMB Approval Number: 2577-0157.
     
  • Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection and one new Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) added after the 60-day comment period.
     
  • Form Numbers: HUD Form 50075.1, HUD-5084, HUD-5087, HUD-51000, HUD-51001, HUD-51002, HUD-51003, HUD-5104, HUD-51915, HUD-51915-A, HUD-51971-I-II, HUD-52396, HUD-52427, HUD-52482, HUD-52483-A, HUD-52484, HUD-52485, HUD-52651-A, HUD-52829, HUD-52830, HUD-52833, HUD-52845, HUD-52846, HUD-52847, HUD-52849, HUD-53001, HUD-53015, HUD-5370, HUD-5370EZ, HUD-5370C, HUD-5372, HUD-5378, HUD-5460, HUD-52828, 50071, 5370-C1, 5370-C2.
     
  • Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Each year Congress appropriates funds to approximately 3,015 Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) for modernization, development, financing, and management improvements. The funds are allocated based on a complex formula. The forms in this collection are used to appropriately disburse and utilize the funds provided to PHAs. Additionally, these forms provide the information necessary to approve a financing transaction in addition to any Capital Fund Financing transactions. Respondents include the approximately 3,015 PHA receiving Capital Funds and any other PHAs wishing to pursue financing.
     
  • This proposed information collection has been revised to include the following changes below:
    1. HUD has removed all of the hours for the annual submission of form HUD-50075.2 and reduced the hours for HUD-50075.1. HUD is now collecting that information electronically thru the Energy Performance Information Center (EPIC) system. These hours were transferred to OMB No. 2577-0274 Energy Performance Information Center (EPIC). HUD will continue to use the HUD-50075.1 for the Capital Fund set aside grant programs, Lead Based Paint, Emergency Safety and Security, and Emergency and Disaster. Only those hours remain in 2577-0157.1. As a result, the burden hours were decreased 9,260 hours
       
    2. Due to conversion of Public Housing to the Section 8 thru the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program, the number of PHAs receiving Capital Funds has been reduced from 3,100 to 3,015. This has reduced the number of hours by 3,774.
       
    3. The total reduction in in burden hours are 13,034.
