SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in section A. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Evaluation of the Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Program, Phase I. OMB Approval Number: N/A. Type of Request: New. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Office of Policy Research and Development, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the evaluation of the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities (Section 811) Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program. The PRA Program is a new model of housing assistance authorized in 2010 that provides project-based rental assistance to state housing agencies for the development of supportive housing for extremely lowincome persons with disabilities. Housing agencies must have a formal partnership with the state health and human service agency and the state Medicaid provider to provide services and supports directly to residents living in units funded with Section 811 PRA. The Section 811 PRA program authorizing statute requires HUD to describe the assistance under the program, to analyze its effectiveness, and propose recommendations for future assistance under Section 811. HUD is implementing a two-phase evaluation of the Section 811 PRA program. The first phase of the evaluation is focused on a process evaluation that will describe the implementation of the program in the first 12 states awarded Section 811 PRA funds. The second phase will evaluate the program effectiveness and its impact on residents. This request for OMB clearance covers the first phase of the evaluation. Data collection includes inperson interviews with staffs at state agencies, (housing, health and human services and state Medicaid providers) Number of respondents Respondents Frequency of response and Section 811 PRA Partner Agencies (property owners or managers of properties where Section 811 PRA participants live and staff at organizations that provide supportive services to PRA participants). The purpose of the interviews is to document the implementation experience of the Section 811 PRA Program. Respondents (i.e. affected public): State housing agencies, state health and human service and Medicaid provider agencies, and Section 811 PRA Partner Agencies. Total Estimated Burden: For the state housing agency staff, state health and human service agency staff and state Medicaid agency staff, researchers will administer interviews on the implementation of the Section 811 PRA Program for a total of five hours. An additional two hours will be needed to compile material needed on the PRA program in order to answer the research questions. The total burden for state housing agency and Medicaid respondents is 168 hours. The average burden of interviews for Section 811 PRA Partner Agency staff is one hour, with an additional hour to compile information needed to complete the interview. The total burden for PRA Partner Agencies is 137.5 hours. The total burden for all respondents is 305.5 hours.
