Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Evaluation of the Jobs Plus Pilot Program. OMB Approval Number: 2528-New. Type of Request: New collection. Form Number: None. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD’s 2014 Appropriations included funding to support the implementation of the Jobs Plus Pilot Program, a place-based program designed to increase work and earnings among public housing residents. Nine public housing agencies (PHAs) were awarded grant funds in the Spring of 2015, and will implement the Jobs Plus program over a period of four years. The program as designed includes three core components: (1) Employment-related services, (2) financial incentives—the Jobs Plus Earned Income Disregard (JPEID), and (3) community supports for work. The Jobs Plus program seeks to replicate the model tested under the Jobs Plus Demonstration back in the 1990s and early 2000, which led to sustained growth in earned income among residents at sites that fully implemented the program. This current generation of the Jobs Plus program, however, will differ from the Jobs Plus demonstration in some important ways—first, the current iteration of the program will benefit from a more robust financial incentive, and second, the program will be implemented almost twenty years after the initial demonstration, in a very different employment market. Because of these important variations, HUD is supporting an evaluation of the Jobs Plus Pilot program, with the goal of documenting the programs established by the Jobs Plus Pilot Program grantees and laying the groundwork for future evaluative work that will seek to document the impact of the program, both on the program participants, as well as the entire target development. Specific research objectives include, but are not limited to: Describing the set of activities and partnerships established by grantees under core program components; describing the amount and type of leveraged resources accessed by Form Respondent Site Visit Interview Guide #1.
