First, the researchers will administer twenty five on-site interviews over two day periods, conducting an average of six interviews at each site visit with Executive Directors, public housing directors, Housing Choice Voucher directors, staff that determine eligibility and tenant rents, and two local housing market experts. Each interview performed is expected to last up to one hour. An additional 180 phone surveys will be conducted with a nationally representative sample of PHA staff across the country. Each phone survey is expected to last 60 minutes. Interviews with PHA staff will provide information on their waiting lists, experience with the current system, experience with rent flexibility and related efforts, and views on alternative rent structures. Additionally, up to 1,500 interviews with eligible participants on the waiting list and/or those recently admitted into the program will be completed. These interviews are expected to last approximately three-quarters of an hour and will provide insight into how they are or would be affected by the current system and the proposed alternatives. Lastly, up to 470 follow-up interviews with PHA staff and households may be completed with each interview lasting from three-quarters of an hour to one hour each.
