Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Planning Phase Evaluation of the LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention Initiative. OMB Approval Number: 2506-New. Type of Request: New collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Prevention PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Initiative began in the summer of 2013 as part of a federal interagency initiative. The initiative’s goal is to prevent homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, and to intervene early when homelessness occurs for these youth. Federal partners from the U.S. Departments of Education, Health, and Juvenile Justice, as well as the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, support this HUD initiative. The initiative supports the federal goal to end youth homelessness by 2020 and contributes to the development of a model for preventing LGBT youth homelessness that other communities can replicate. There are two communities participating in this initiative and both receive technical assistance (TA) to support their initiative planning (and later in the process, their initiative implementation). At this time, both communities are in the midst of their strategic planning and we do not currently have information on the strategies they plan to implement starting in fall 2014. Hence, this request for OMB clearance only covers the first evaluation phase. This planning phase evaluation will document how the two participating communities have approached their local plan development. Furthermore, it will examine the resources required to carry out the planning process, what worked well, what challenges emerged and how they were addressed, and lessons learned. To produce this information, HUD will collect quantitative and qualitative data from primary sources using four methods: interviews, surveys, focus groups, and document review. Participants will consist of the local initiative leads as well as individuals involved in local initiative steering committees and subcommittees. Documents to be reviewed will not require new data collection—they are available through the ongoing TA to the two communities. This first evaluation phase will focus on nine aspects of the planning process: (1) Role of local leads, (2) timeline; (3) needs assessment, (4) logic model; (5) local plan development; (6) role of steering committee; (7) role of subcommittees; (8) community involvement; and (9) technical assistance supports. These areas were chosen to better understand development of the local plans, including learned lessons, overall strengths/assets, and weaknesses/ challenges of the planning phase. A separate OMB clearance request will be submitted as part of the second evaluation phase, which will examine E:\FR\FM\29SEN1.SGM 29SEN1 58369 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 188 / Monday, September 29, 2014 / Notices each community’s implementation of their local plans.
