A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Transfer and Consolidation of 
Public Housing Programs and Public Housing Agencies.
    OMB Approval Number: 2577-New.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Form Number: No form is used to collect this information. Forms 
collected with information incidental to this collection are: HUD-
52190-A, HUD-53012-A, HUD 53012-B, HUD-52722, HUD-52723, HUD-51999, SF-
1199A, HUD-27056, HUD-27054A, HUD-52540.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: State 
legislatures or other local governing bodies may from time to time 
direct or agree that the public interest is best served if one public 
housing agency (PHA) cedes its public housing program to another PHA, 
or that two or more PHAs should be combined into one 
multijurisdictional PHA. This proposed information collection serves to 
protect HUD's several interests in either transaction: (1) Insuring the 
continued used of the property as public housing; (2) that HUD's 
interests are secured; and (3) that the operating and capital subsidies 
that HUD pays to support the operation and maintenance of public 
housing is properly paid to the correct PHA on behalf of the correct 
properties. In addition to submitting documentation to HUD, PHAs are 
required to make conforming changes to HUD's Public Housing Information 
Center (PIC).
