Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request is for the clearance of survey instruments designed to provide statistically accurate information on the outcomes realized by clients of HUDapproved counseling agencies seeking assistance to either purchase a home (pre-purchase clients) or to resolve or prevent mortgage delinquency (postpurchase clients). Fourteen-hundred and thirty counseling clients have already been recruited to voluntarily participate in the study. In granting their informed consent to participate in the study, these counseling clients agreed to be contacted by telephone 12 months following the receipt of counseling to complete a survey about their counseling experience and their current housing situation. The purpose of this survey is to gather information needed to both document the share of clients realizing different outcomes following counseling and to analyze how these outcomes vary with the characteristics of clients and the services they receive. OMB Approval Number: Pending. Agency form numbers: None. Members of Affected Public: Fourteenhundred and thirty housing counseling clients. Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The average time per client for completing the telephone survey is one-half hour. Of the fourteenhundred and thirty clients in the study, 978 are expected to complete the survey. Thus, total burden hours are 489 hours for counseling clients. Status of the proposed information collection: Pending OMB approval. Authority: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended. Dated: February 21, 2010.
