(a) General. In order to participate in the public housing program, a PHA must be approved as an eligible PHA. HUD will determine eligibility based on a showing that the PHA has the legal authority and local cooperation required by this part.
(b) Legal authority. The PHA must demonstrate that it has the legal authority to develop, own, and operate a public housing project under the Act.
(c) Troubled PHAs. Unless HUD determines that a PHA that has been classified as troubled or modernization-troubled, in accordance with 24 CFR part 901, has adequate capacity to develop public housing units, the PHA so classified shall engage a HUD-approved program manager to develop and implement the PHA's proposal. HUD shall review the solicitation and the selection before award of a contract is made by such a PHA.
(d) Local cooperation. The PHA must provide a cooperation agreement between the PHA and the applicable local governing body for the area in which the public housing project is to be located as evidence that the local governing body will provide the local cooperation required by HUD pursuant to the Act. This local cooperation shall include exemption from real and personal property taxes, acceptance of PHA payments in lieu of taxes, and the provision at no cost or at no greater cost by the local governing body of the same public services and facilities normally furnished to others in the community.
