Information Collection Request Title: Domestic Violence Housing First Demonstration Evaluation. Abstract: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the Office for Victims of Crimes within the U.S. Department of Justice, is seeking approval by OMB for a new information collection request entitled, ‘‘Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) Demonstration Evaluation.’’ The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) is overseeing and coordinating an evaluation of the DVHF Demonstration project through a contract with ASPE. This quasiexperimental research study involves longitudinally examining the program effects of DVHF on domestic violence survivors’ safety and housing stability. The findings will be of interest to the general public, to policy-makers, and to organizations working with domestic violence survivors. Data collection will include in-depth, private interviews with 320 domestic violence survivors conducted by trained professional staff. At Time 1 study enrollment, they will be interviewed about their backgrounds, housing and safety obstacles, and services desired. There will be three follow-up interviews with them every six months after the Time 1 Interview (i.e., 6, 12, and 18 months) to examine the match between needs and services, as well as their safety and housing stability. Study enrollment will take place over 15 months, so the annualized burden for the Time 1 and follow-up surveys is based on 12/15 (256) of the expected sample (320). The primary service providers working with the domestic violence survivors will complete selfadministered online questionnaires to provide more detailed program implementation data. Service providers will complete a survey about their work history and demographics and a survey about the services provided for each domestic violence survivor in their caseload that is a participant in the study (approximately 16 survivors per provider). This latter data collection will occur six months after a domestic violence survivor enrolls in the study over 15 months to correspond to the study enrollment period. Finally, the study will also include monthly data collection for 19 months from an agency point of contact (POC) in order to verify agency information (e.g., the number of advocates working in the agency, advocate caseloads, dates of study participants’ receipt of services). Likely Respondents: The respondents are domestic violence survivors, primary service providers, and community agency points of contact who work with their agency data systems.
