Download as PDF 35904 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 118 / Monday, June 20, 2011 / Notices Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill directed the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to ‘‘undertake research to ascertain the impact of various service and housing interventions in ending homelessness for families.’’ In response to this directive, HUD awarded an Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) to Abt Associates, Inc. in September 2008 to conduct a study entitled The Impact of Housing and Services Interventions on Homeless Families. The study will compare several combinations of housing assistance and services in a multi-site experiment, to determine which interventions work best to promote housing stability, family preservation, child well-being, adult well-being, and self-sufficiency. The study has begun enrolling families and administering the baseline survey. The follow-up survey enables collection of data on the outcomes of interest from families who have participated in the study; the survey will permit the research team to track participants and measure the outcomes of participants 18 months after assignment to one of the study’s interventions. Interviews with key informants will enable the study team to collect cost information so that it is possible to assess the costs of the interventions and services provided to homeless families. Members of affected public: Households.

This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Section 8 Random Digit Dialing Fair Market Rent Surveys. OMB Control Number: 2528–0142. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD is evaluating alternative survey methodologies to collect gross rent data for specific areas in a relatively fast and accurate way that may be used to estimate and update Section 8 Fair Market Rents (FMRs) in areas where FMRs are believed to be incorrect and data from the American Community Survey is not available at the local level. Section 8(C)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 requires the Secretary to publish Fair Market Rents (FMRs) annually to be effective on October 1 of each year. FMRs are used for the Section 8 Rental Certificate Program (including space rentals by owners of manufactured homes under that program); the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program; housing assisted under the Loan Management and Property Disposition programs; payment standards for the Rental Voucher program; and any other programs whose regulations specify their use. Random digit dialing (RDD) telephone surveys have been used for many years to adjust FMRs and will be evaluated for continued use. These surveys are based on a sampling procedure that uses computers to select statistically random samples of telephone numbers to locate certain types of rental housing units for surveying. Cell phone surveys will be incorporated into this methodology and comprise roughly one-third of the sample. In addition HUD will collect survey data using web-based and mail systems. Initially, as the methodology is being refined, HUD will conduct surveys of up to 4 individual FMR areas in a year to test the accuracy of their FMRs. Up to 5 individual FMR area will be surveyed after the new methodology is determined. Members of affected public: Individuals or households living in areas surveyed.
