Description of the need for information and proposed use: The Department is conducting this study under contract with MDRC and its subcontractors (Branch Associates, The Bronner Group, Decision Information Resources, Quadel Consulting Corporation, and the Urban Institute). The project is a random controlled trial of a new alternative rent system. Families will be randomly assigned to either participate in the new/alternative rent system or to continue in the current system. Outcomes of the alternative system are hypothesized to be increases in earnings, more accurate reporting of earnings, and job retention. Random assignment will limit the extent to which selection bias drives observed results. The demonstration will document the progress of a group of Voucher holders, who will be drawn from both the current residents and new enrollees. The intent is to gain an understanding of the impact of the alternative rent system on the families as well as the administrative burden on Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). PHAs currently participating in the Moving to Work (MtW) Demonstration are being recruited to participate in this demonstration. Data collection will include the families that are part of the treatment and control groups, as well as PHA staff. Data will be gathered through a variety of methods including informational interviews, direct observation, surveys, and analysis of administrative records. The work covered under this information request is for interviews and the baseline survey. Additional work will be undertaken in subsequent task orders and covered under a separate information collection request.
