The evaluation includes: (a) A review of the relevant economic development, performance measurement, and tax credit literature; (b) interviews with key NMTC stakeholders; (c) an analysis of NMTC administrative data; (d) the development of a typology of NMTC projects; and (e) an examination of secondary public and private data. To address the key evaluation issues noted above, new data must be gathered about NMTC projects beyond what is already being collected by the CDFI Fund. Clearance is requested for the following new data collection efforts: (1) Casestyle data collection related to approximately 80 randomly sampled NMTC projects that will consist of semistructured telephone interviews with approximately 80 CDEs, 80 QALICBs, 80 investors, and 80 other key project stakeholders; (2) a web-based, predominantly closed-ended survey of representatives of approximately 380 QALICBs; and (3) a web-based, predominantly closed-ended survey of approximately 380 local community/ economic development officials. Toward this end, clearance is requested for four topical discussion guides, a data sheet for CDEs, a data sheet for QALICBs, and two survey instruments. Respondents are CDEs that received NMTC allocation authority and used these credits to finance qualified investments, QALICBs that received equity or debt investments using NMTCs, investors in projects that include NMTCs, local community and economic development officials or other stakeholders in NMTC projects, such as accountants, attorneys, or local organizations involved in the projects. Estimated Number of Respondents: 890. Number of Responses per Respondent: In general, it is expected that each CDE will respond only once. Some CDE representatives may be requested to respond more than once because they may have provided allocations for more than one project in the sample selected. Estimated Time per Response: All burden estimates include respondents’ time to prepare for and complete surveys, information sheets (where applicable) and interviews. Estimated times are as follows: QALICB survey: 30 minutes; Local Community/Economic Development Officials’ Survey: 20 minutes; CDE and QALICB Telephone Interviews: 60 minutes; Investor and VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:31 Feb 03, 2010 Jkt 220001 Local Stakeholder Interviews: 45 minutes; and CDE and QALICB Data Sheet: 30 minutes.
