Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 116 / Thursday, June 16, 2011 / Notices srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES administrative fees with a larger sample of PHAs. OMB Approval Number: Pending. Agency Form Numbers: None. Members of Affected Public: Up to 250 PHA staff persons across up to 10 PHAs. Estimation of the Total Number of Hours Needed To Prepare the Information Collection Including Number of Respondents, Frequency of Response, and Hours of Response: We plan to conduct the pretest at 5 to 10 PHAs across the country. The pretest will involve a combination of on-site and telephone data collection from PHA staff through interviews, observation, and self-reporting of time spent working on the HCV program via timesheets and other methods. There are five data collection activities that involve PHA staff. First, at each pretest site, PHA staff will spend up to 32 hours assembling data for the study and being interviewed by the study team (32 hours × 10 sites = 320 hours). Second, at each site up to 15 staff will be observed in their work for up to four weeks (28 working days). These staff will engage with the researchers for approximately 15 minutes per day, for a total of 7 hours per staff over four weeks (7 hours × 15 staff × 10 sites = 1,050 hours). Third, at each site up to 15 staff will complete timesheets or respond to messages via a SmartPhone for a period of approximately two months (45 working days). These activities will take approximately 15 minutes per day, for a total of 11.25 hours per staff over the two-month period (11.25 hours × 15 staff × 10 sites = 1,688 hours). Fourth, all staff involved in time measurement activities will participate in up to 2 hours of training or preparation activities (2 hours × 30 staff × 10 sites = 600 hours). Fifth, an average of 10 PHA staff per site will spend approximately 60 minutes debriefing with the research team about their experiences with the pretest (1 hour × 10 staff × 10 sites = 100 hours). The total estimated burden across all proposed data collection activities is 3,758 hours. Status of the Proposed Information Collection: Pending OMB approval. Authority: U.S. Code 12, 1701z–1, Research and demonstrations. Dated: June 9, 2011. Raphael W. Bostic, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research.

These actions address goals to: Prevent and end homelessness; increase the supply of affordable housing; and increase the coordination of mainstream housing resources and other health and human services. The HOPWA NOFA announces funds available for projects that address both: (1) Direct housing assistance and service delivery to low income persons and families living with HIV/AIDS, including homeless individuals and families; and (2) comprehensive planning and coordination of local resources in meeting housing and service needs of the population. As a result of project efforts, communities will be assisted in the development and use of an Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan (IHHP) to be issued at the end of the third year of operation. The IHHP is an administrative function and should demonstrate local system changes in the delivery of housing and services. Grantees are expected to provide housing assistance to eligible persons in their communities while concurrently examining and comprehensively integrating local services for coordinating and streamlining where possible the delivery of those services in your community.
