HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) has announced the availability of four new reports to assist PHAs in administering the community service and self-sufficiency requirement (CSSR). Plans for release of the reports were announced in Notice PIH 2015-12, published in August 2015. The notice and the new reports were issued to assist PHAs’ understanding and administration of the CSSR and in response to an audit report from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) issued in February 2015.
The new reports, which will be provided to PHAs quarterly, include:
- A CSSR summary report
- A list of household members listed as noncompliant in HUD’s Inventory Management System/Public and Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC)
- A list of “potentially misreported exempt tenants—non-disabled”
- A list of “potentially misreported exempt tenants—disabled”
The announcement notes that the third and fourth reports do not necessarily point to problems requiring correction. They are provided to assist PHAs in identifying potentially misreported tenants.
Instructions for accessing the reports are provided in the announcement. PHAs must save the reports to a local server by February 12. The web page will no longer be available after that date.
