Small Public Housing Authorities Paperwork Reduction Act Introduced

Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 3:45PM

Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., yesterday introduced legislation that would reduce excessive paperwork and reporting requirements for small public housing authorities (PHAs), allowing them to focus more energy on their mission to provide affordable housing in the communities they serve. Under S. 2707, the “Small Public Housing Authorities Paperwork Reduction Act,” PHAs with 500 or fewer public housing units would be exempt from the requirement of submitting an annual plan to the Department of Housjoying and Urban Development (HUD). Only those PHAs that have demonstrated previous compliance with HUD regulations would be eligible for the exemption.
