The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. The mission of HUD’s Healthy Homes Program is ‘‘To reduce health and safety hazards in housing in a comprehensive and cost effective manner, with a particular focus on protecting the health of children and other sensitive populations in low income households.’’ (Leading Our Nation to Healthier Homes: The Healthy Homes Strategic Plan, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, 2010, p. 7.) An evaluation and summarization of grants awarded under the program was last completed in 2005 (‘‘An Evaluation of HUD’s Healthy Homes Initiative: Current Findings and Outcomes,’’ Healthy Housing Solutions, March 5, 2007). The objectives of the Healthy Homes Demonstration (HHD) grants that will be evaluated through the effort described in this notice include: • Carrying out direct remediation where housing-related hazards may contribute to injury or illness, with a focus on children’s health; • Delivering education and outreach activities to protect children from housing-related hazards; and • Building capacity to increase the probability that aspects of grant- VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:14 Mar 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 supported Healthy Homes programs are sustained. OHHLHC intends to administer an online questionnaire for up to 30 HHD grantees. This questionnaire will capture key project information to supplement information already available in reports and manuscripts from the approximately 54 HHD grants that were awarded from fiscal years 2005 to 2009, including any 2004 grant not included in the earlier evaluation, and any more recent grantee whose grant ends this fiscal year. OHHLHC is especially interested in determining whether any of the grantee’s data sets (i.e., resulting from project evaluation) would be of value to OHHLHC for additional analyses. After a review of available reports and manuscripts, OHHLHC anticipates roughly half of these grantees (up to 30) will be asked to complete the online questionnaire. OHHLHC will target those grantees that have carried out the greatest number of interventions, collected the most detailed evaluation data on cost, health and housing impacts and outcomes, and can demonstrate significant capacitybuilding and sustainable approaches to guide policy development and guidance for future healthy homes efforts. A questionnaire was developed for the 2005 evaluation that captured key information about recruitment/ enrollment, assessment, interventions, skills training, and community education/outreach in HHI grantee projects. This questionnaire will be modified for this new data collection effort. The online questionnaire will be administered through a secure Web site. DATES: Comments Due Date: April 4, 2013. Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding this proposal. Comments should refer to the proposal by name and/or OMB approval Number (2539–New) and should be sent to: HUD Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; fax: 202–395–5806.

[Docket No. FR-5683-N-15]


Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB: 
Survey and Collection of Information From HUD Healthy Housing 
Demonstration Grantees

AGENCY: Office of the Chief Information Officer, HUD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The proposed information collection requirement described 
below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department 
is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.
    The mission of HUD's Healthy Homes Program is ``To reduce health 
and safety hazards in housing in a comprehensive and cost effective 
manner, with a particular focus on protecting the health of children 
and other sensitive populations in low income households.'' (Leading 
Our Nation to Healthier Homes: The Healthy Homes Strategic Plan, U.S. 
Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Healthy Homes and 
Lead Hazard Control, 2010, p. 7.) An evaluation and summarization of 
grants awarded under the program was last completed in 2005 (``An 
Evaluation of HUD's Healthy Homes Initiative: Current Findings and 
Outcomes,'' Healthy Housing Solutions, March 5, 2007). The objectives 
of the Healthy Homes Demonstration (HHD) grants that will be evaluated 
through the effort described in this notice include:
     Carrying out direct remediation where housing-related 
hazards may contribute to injury or illness, with a focus on children's 
health;
     Delivering education and outreach activities to protect 
children from housing-related hazards; and
     Building capacity to increase the probability that aspects 
of grant-supported Healthy Homes programs are sustained.

OHHLHC intends to administer an online questionnaire for up to 30 HHD 
grantees. This questionnaire will capture key project information to 
supplement information already available in reports and manuscripts 
from the approximately 54 HHD grants that were awarded from fiscal 
years 2005 to 2009, including any 2004 grant not included in the 
earlier evaluation, and any more recent grantee whose grant ends this 
fiscal year. OHHLHC is especially interested in determining whether any 
of the grantee's data sets (i.e., resulting from project evaluation) 
would be of value to OHHLHC for additional analyses. After a review of 
available reports and manuscripts, OHHLHC anticipates roughly half of 
these grantees (up to 30) will be asked to complete the online 
questionnaire. OHHLHC will target those grantees that have carried out 
the greatest number of interventions, collected the most detailed 
evaluation data on cost, health and housing impacts and outcomes, and 
can demonstrate significant capacity- building and sustainable 
approaches to guide policy development and guidance for future healthy 
homes efforts. A questionnaire was developed for the 2005 evaluation 
that captured key information about recruitment/enrollment, assessment, 
interventions, skills training, and community education/outreach in HHI 
grantee projects. This questionnaire will be modified for this new data 
collection effort. The online questionnaire will be administered 
through a secure Web site.
