OMB Control Number: 2528-pending. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This information collection will support research that will explore and document how public housing agencies (PHAs) currently serve and interact with homeless households, to achieve the following: (1) Establish a baseline level of PHAs’ current engagement in serving homeless households, (2) document the practices of PHAs that have an explicit preference for homeless households; (3) explore PHA perceptions of barriers to, or concerns about, increasing the number of homeless households served or targeting homeless households for priority housing assistance; and (4) identify mechanisms to address or eliminate barriers to serving homeless households in mainstream housing assistance, with a focus on the housing choice voucher (HCV) program and public housing. Findings of this study will enable the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 55489 (HUD), which funds PHAs, to develop strategies to expand access to mainstream housing opportunities for homeless households that are rooted in evidence and informed by the PHAs themselves. This proposed data collection consists of a telephone survey to be administered to a purposeful sample of 125 public housing agencies. Members of affected public: Public housing agencies.

This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Site Visit Protocols for Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP2) Evaluation; Second Round. OMB Control Number: Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is conducting an important national study of the PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), with a particular focus on the round of funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), known as ‘‘NSP2.’’ This information collection will constitute the second round of site visits and interviews of NSP2 grantees, as well as collection of grantees’ property-level data on NSP2 activities conducted. The information collected will be used to describe how program implementation occurred in practice, gather views of what program outcomes and impacts have occurred, and explore factors that contributed to program outcomes. Agency Form Numbers: Members of the Affected Public: A total of 29 NSP2 grantees (25 local and 4 national) and 50 partner agencies will be part of the study. Staff of these grantees will be asked to participate in interviews with HUD’s contractor and to provide HUD’s contractor with access to their records for tracking program activity. Local interviews will take approximately 2 hours per person and will be administered to approximately 4 staff per NSP2 grantee and 4 additional staff among partner agencies. Interviews with national grantees will be administered to approximately 2 staff per NSP2 grantee. Property-level data will be compiled either by grantee representatives or by a HUD contractor. Approximately onehalf of the 29 grantees (or 14 grantees) and 25 partner organizations will likely chose to report the required data themselves via the study’s preformatted spreadsheet. HUD estimates that each spreadsheet will take one person about 1.5 working days (12 hours) to complete, on average. For the remaining 15 grantees and 25 partner organizations, the data will be compiled by the research team with the support of local representatives. The majority of this effort will be conducted E:\FR\FM\10SEN1.SGM 10SEN1
