Public Housing Administrative Reform Initiative

The Public Housing Administrative Reform Initiative is intended to identify administrative requirements and related processes that can be streamlined while still allowing the Department to maintain its essential oversight responsibilities.

As part of this initiative, the Department has received input from industry partners, participating in thirteen focus groups. Over the past few months, participants examined regulations, notices, and other process requirements for topics affecting public housing agencies, particularly in the context of transitioning to asset management. It was not the intention for each focus group to come up with "consensus" recommendations, but rather seek input from all group members. These groups have provided their final reports regarding current non-statutory administrative requirements that might be streamlined to (1) better support and/or facilitate the transition to asset management, and (2) ensure consistency with norms in multifamily housing, where appropriate.

The study groups' final reports, each of which has different recommendations, are below.

On September 27, 2007, the study group members will meet in Washington, D.C., to hear HUD's preliminary read on their recommendations and to discuss their impact on each of the study areas.

The meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. and adjourn at 4:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the 10th floor auditorium at the

Potomac Office Center
550 12th Street SW,
Washington DC. 20410

To prepare for the meeting, please read each group's final reports.

If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Teninga at (202)-475-8815.
