The Committee shall have no role in reviewing or selecting the MTW PHAs. Each year, the Committee shall provide a report to the HUD Secretary that describes the activities, status, and changes in composition of the Committee since the previous year. A draft of the Committee’s Charter and Membership Balance Plan can be found on HUD’s Web site at www.hud.gov/ mtw. Structure: The Committee shall consist of up to fourteen (14) members, as the Secretary will appoint. Members will be reappointed at the discretion of the Secretary. When appropriate, HUD will provide stipends to members selected as former or current residents of MTW PHAs as compensation for their time. All other members shall serve without compensation. Membership of the Committee shall include program and research experts from HUD; a fair representation of PHAs with an MTW designation, including current and/or former residents; and independent subject matter experts in housing policy research. No person who is a federally-registered lobbyist may serve on the Committee. Members of the Committee shall be chosen to ensure balance, diversity, and a broad representation of ideas, in accordance with HUD’s Membership Balance Plan for the Committee. In general, subject matter expertise in the programs operated by HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing, and specifically the MTW Demonstration Program, is beneficial in helping the Committee accomplish its mission. Membership on the Committee is personal to the appointee. Committee members representing MTW agency Executive Directors may designate an alternate member of their MTW agency to attend in their place, should they be unable to participate in a Committee meeting. The Committee will meet in person at least one (1) time per fiscal year and by conference call up to six (6) times as needed to render advice to HUD. Meetings shall be coordinated by a Designated Federal Officer who shall approve the agenda and chair Committee meetings. Committee members will be required, as applicable, to provide disclosures and certifications regarding conflicts of interest and eligibility for membership prior to final appointment.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24631 A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Core Performance Reporting for Competitively-Funded Grants. OMB Control Number: 2501-New. Type of Request: New collection. Form Number: HUD–PRL, HUD–CIRL, and HUD–GF. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request is for the clearance of data collection and reporting requirements to enable the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Strategic Planning and Management (OSPM) to better assess the effectiveness of competitively-funded grants included in this information collection request (ICR). The competitively–funded grant programs included in this ICR are: Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages (ICDBG), Family SelfSufficiency Program (FSS), Housing Counseling (HC), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), JobsPlus Program (Jobs+), Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP), Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control (LBPHC), Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD), Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program (MFSC), Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), Supportive Services Demonstration Program (202), and Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency Service Coordinators Program (ROSS). A key component of this proposed collection is the reporting of measureable outcomes. Additionally, the standardization of data collection and reporting requirements across the Department will increase data comparability and utilization. Consolidation of de-identified data drawn from pre-existing HUD’s systems and databases, as applicable, into a single repository will enhance the Department’s comprehensive and comparative analysis of competitivelyfunded HUD programs. Data submission will be acceptable via Comma Separated Values (CSV), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and other file formats in addition to direct data entry into an online web form. The Department has several reporting models in place for competitive grant programs, including the eLogic Model. The reporting models provide information on a wide variety of outputs and outcomes and are based on unique data definitions and outcome measures in program-specific performance and progress reports. In Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, nine program offices at HUD used six systems and 15 reporting tools E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1 24632 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 80 / Tuesday, April 26, 2016 / Notices to collect over 700 data elements in support of varied metrics to assess the performance of competitively-funded grants. The proposed data collection and reporting requirements described in this notice are designed to replace the use of the eLogic Model and other report forms and requirements. The lack of standardized data collection and reporting requirements imposes an increased burden on grantees with multiple grant awards from HUD. The need for a comprehensive and standardized reporting approach is underscored by reviews conducted by external oversight agencies, including the Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO). These oversight agencies have questioned the validity and comparability of data reported by the Department. To address these issues, the Department is using its statutory and regulatory authority to redesign and strengthen performance reporting for many of its competitive grant programs into a single comprehensive approach. The Secretary’s statutory and regulatory authority to administer HUD programs include provisions allowing for the requirement of performance reporting from grantees. This legal authority is codified at 42 U.S.C. 3535(r). The individual privacy of service recipients is of the highest priority. The reporting repository established at HUD to receive data submission from grantees will not include any personally identifying information (PII). Additionally, if the data for a grant has 25 or fewer individuals served during a FY as reported in the record-level reports, then the results for the demographic data elements for the 25 or fewer individuals will also be redacted or removed from the public-use data file and any publicly available analytical products in order to ensure the inability to identify any individual. Eligible entities awarded grants by the Department are expected to implement the proposed recordkeeping and reporting requirements with available grant funds. It is important to note that much of the data to be reported by grantees under this ICR is already required and reported to one or more program offices at HUD. Furthermore, generally only a subset of the universe of data elements presented will be submitted as data collection and reporting requirements which are determined by the program office and include consideration of the type and level of service provided by the respective grant programs. The reporting requirements in this proposal better organize the data already being collected, standardize outcomes and performance measures, and allow program offices at HUD to select which data elements and performance indicators are relevant for their respective programs. Documents detailing the data elements, performance indicators, and draft online data entry forms are available for review by request from Thaddeus Wincek (thaddeus.d.wincek@hud.gov). All information reported to HUD will be submitted electronically. Recipients or grantees may use existing management information systems provided those systems collect all of the required data elements and can be exported for submission to HUD. Recipients or grantees that sub-grant funds to other organizations will need to collect the required information from their subrecipients or sub-grantees. Information collected and reported will be used by recipients or grantees and the Department for the following purposes: • To provide program and performance information to recipients, general public, Congress, and other stakeholders; • To continuously improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of grant-funded programs; • To provide management information for use by the Department in program administration and oversight, including the monitoring of grant-specific participation, services, capital investments, and outcomes; and • To better measure and analyze performance information to identify successful practices to be replicated and prevent or correct problematic practices and improve outcomes in compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010. The data collection and reporting requirements will be phased in over a three-year period which includes a proof of concept pilot in FY16. The Department will provide technical assistance to recipients or grantees throughout the implementation. Respondents (i.e. affected public): Organizations awarded competitivelyfunded grants from the following HUD programs: Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages (ICDBG), Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), Housing Counseling (HC), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), JobsPlus Program (Jobs+), Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP), Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control (LBPHC), Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD), Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program (MFSC), Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), Supportive Services Demonstration Program (202), and Resident Opportunity and SelfSufficiency Service Coordinators Program (ROSS).

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Core Performance Reporting for 
Competitively-Funded Grants.
    OMB Control Number: 2501-New.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    Form Number: HUD-PRL, HUD-CIRL, and HUD-GF.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This 
request is for the clearance of data collection and reporting 
requirements to enable the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban 
Development (HUD) Office of Strategic Planning and Management (OSPM) to 
better assess the effectiveness of competitively-funded grants included 
in this information collection request (ICR). The competitively-funded 
grant programs included in this ICR are: Community Development Block 
Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages (ICDBG), 
Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), Housing Counseling (HC), Housing 
Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), JobsPlus Program (Jobs+), 
Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP), Lead-Based Paint Hazard 
Control (LBPHC), Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD), 
Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator Program (MFSC), Self-Help 
Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), Supportive Services 
Demonstration Program (202), and Resident Opportunity and Self-
Sufficiency Service Coordinators Program (ROSS).
    A key component of this proposed collection is the reporting of 
measureable outcomes. Additionally, the standardization of data 
collection and reporting requirements across the Department will 
increase data comparability and utilization. Consolidation of de-
identified data drawn from pre-existing HUD's systems and databases, as 
applicable, into a single repository will enhance the Department's 
comprehensive and comparative analysis of competitively-funded HUD 
programs. Data submission will be acceptable via Comma Separated Values 
(CSV), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and other file formats in 
addition to direct data entry into an online web form.
    The Department has several reporting models in place for 
competitive grant programs, including the eLogic Model. The reporting 
models provide information on a wide variety of outputs and outcomes 
and are based on unique data definitions and outcome measures in 
program-specific performance and progress reports. In Federal Fiscal 
Year (FY) 2013, nine program offices at HUD used six systems and 15 
reporting tools

to collect over 700 data elements in support of varied metrics to 
assess the performance of competitively-funded grants. The proposed 
data collection and reporting requirements described in this notice are 
designed to replace the use of the eLogic Model and other report forms 
and requirements. The lack of standardized data collection and

multiple grant awards from HUD. The need for a comprehensive and 
standardized reporting approach is underscored by reviews conducted by

These oversight agencies have questioned the validity and comparability 
of data reported by the Department. To address these issues, the 
Department is using its statutory and regulatory authority to redesign

information reported to HUD will be submitted electronically. 
Recipients or grantees may use existing management information systems 
provided those systems collect all of the required data elements and 
can be exported for submission to HUD. Recipients or grantees that sub-
grant funds to other organizations will need to collect the required 
information from their sub-recipients or sub-grantees. Information 
collected and reported will be used by recipients or grantees and the 
Department for the following purposes:
     To provide program and performance information to 
recipients, general public, Congress, and other stakeholders;
     To continuously improve the quality, effectiveness, and 
efficiency of grant-funded programs;
     To provide management information for use by the 
Department in program administration and oversight, including the 
monitoring of grant-specific participation, services, capital 
investments, and outcomes; and
     To better measure and analyze performance information to 
identify successful practices to be replicated and prevent or correct 
problematic practices and improve outcomes in compliance with the 
Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) and the GPRA 
Modernization Act of 2010.
    The data collection and reporting requirements will be phased in 
over a three-year period which includes a proof of concept pilot in 
FY16. The Department will provide technical assistance to recipients or 
grantees throughout the implementation. Respondents (i.e. affected 
public):
    Organizations awarded competitively-funded grants from the 
following HUD programs: Community Development Block Grant Program for 
Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages (ICDBG), Family Self-
