On Aug 19, NAHRO submitted comments to HUD regarding their 30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection on Executive Compensation Information and HUD Form 52725. The letter states that although NAHRO understands HUD’s statutory requirement to collect information on executive compensation, we remain concerned about the usefulness and relevance of this data collection and its implications regarding the value and merit of operating a PHA, an increasingly difficult and understaffed job. HUD Form 52725 erases meaningful differences among executive roles at varying PHAs, and assumes organizational and governance structures of PHAs are the same across the country.
In this time of budget cuts and ever-increasing regulatory and funding uncertainty, NAHRO is particularly disappointed that the Department continues to devote its oversight resources to efforts such as this that have little or no value rather than focusing on pursuing meaningful regulatory reform that will streamline the delivery of housing and services to low-income Americans.
