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 HUD–DOJ Pay for Success Permanent Supportive Housing Demonstration. OMB Approval Number: Pending. Type of Request: New. Agency Form Numbers: No agency forms will be used. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Justice (DOJ) entered into an interagency collaboration that combines DOJ’s mission to promote safer communities by focusing on the reentry population with HUD’s mission to end chronic homelessness. This collaboration resulted in the Pay for Success Permanent Supportive Housing Demonstration with $8.68M awarded to seven communities to develop supportive housing for persons cycling between the jail or prison systems and the homeless service systems using pay for success (PFS) as a funding mechanism. HUD–DOJ announced seven grantees from across the country in June 2016. The PFS Demonstration grant supports activities throughout the PFS lifecycle, including feasibility analysis, transaction structuring, and outcome evaluation and success payments, with each grantee receiving funds for different stages in the PFS lifecycle. Through the national evaluation, which is funded through an interagency agreement between HUD and DOJ and managed by HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research, HUD–DOJ seek to assess whether PFS is a viable model for scaling supportive housing to improve outcomes for a reentry population. The main goal of the evaluation is to learn how the PFS model is implemented in diverse settings with different structures, populations, and community contexts. The Urban Institute has designed a multi-disciplinary, multi-method approach to ‘‘learn as we do’’ and meet the key objectives of the formative evaluation. To understand project implementation, the evaluation includes data collection on both the time that project partners dedicate to each PFS project as well as PFS partner perceptions and interactions and community-level changes that may benefit the target population. This information collection request is for an ongoing time survey and an annual partnership web survey. The time survey will be used to assess staff time spent on development of each PFS project throughout the different lifecycle Respondent Occupation HUD–DOJ PFS Key Project Partners. HUD–DOJ PFS Supervisors ............ Social and Community Services Manager ................... Community and Social Service Specialist, All Other .... Social and Community Services Manager ................... phases and the partnership survey will be used to document partner perceptions and interactions and community-level changes that may benefit the target population. Respondents: For the annual webbased partnership survey and weekly time text survey, 100 respondents from the grantee and key project partner at 7 demonstration sites. For the monthly web-based time survey, 35 supervisory staff. Estimated total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, hours of response, and cost of response time: Based on the below assumptions and tables, we calculate the annual burden hours for the study to be 266.74 hours and the annual cost to be $7,123.92 and the total burden hours for the first three years of this study to be 800.22 hours and the total cost for the first three years to be $21,371.76. Whereas the typical key project partner role is either a management or support role, we estimated the cost per response using the average of the most recent (May 2015) Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Employment Statistics median hourly wages for the labor categories Social and Community Services Manager (11–9151) with a median hour wage of $30.54 and Community and Social Service Specialist, All Other (21–1099) with a rate of $20.14. For the annual partnership survey and weekly text time survey, we averaged the median hourly wage for the two labor categories; this produces an average of both median hourly wage rates equal to $25.34. For the monthly supervisory time survey, we used only the Social and Community Services Manager rate.

Section A.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Evaluation of the HUD-DOJ Pay for 
Success Permanent Supportive Housing Demonstration.
    OMB Approval Number: Pending.
    Type of Request: New.
    Agency Form Numbers: No agency forms will be used.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Justice 
(DOJ) entered into an interagency collaboration that combines DOJ's 
mission to promote safer communities by focusing on the reentry 
population with HUD's mission to end chronic homelessness. This 
collaboration resulted in the Pay for Success Permanent Supportive 
Housing Demonstration with $8.68M awarded to seven communities to 
develop supportive housing for persons cycling between the jail or 
prison systems and the homeless service systems using pay for success 
(PFS) as a funding mechanism. HUD-DOJ announced seven grantees from 
across the country in June 2016. The PFS Demonstration grant supports 
activities throughout the PFS lifecycle, including feasibility 
analysis, transaction structuring, and outcome evaluation and success 
payments, with each grantee receiving funds for different stages in the 
PFS lifecycle. Through the national evaluation, which is funded through 
an interagency agreement between HUD and DOJ and managed by HUD's 
Office of Policy Development and Research, HUD-DOJ seek to assess 
whether PFS is a viable model for scaling supportive housing to improve 
outcomes for a re-entry population. The main goal of the evaluation is 
to learn how the PFS model is implemented in diverse settings with 
different structures, populations, and community contexts. The Urban 
Institute has designed a multi-disciplinary, multi-method approach to 
``learn as we do'' and meet the key objectives of the formative 
evaluation. To understand project implementation, the evaluation 
includes data collection on both the time that project partners 
dedicate to each PFS project as well as PFS partner perceptions and 
interactions and community-level changes that may benefit the target 
population. This information collection request is for an ongoing time 
survey and an annual partnership web survey. The time survey will be 
used to assess staff time spent on development of each PFS project 
throughout the different lifecycle phases and the partnership survey 
will be used to document partner perceptions and interactions and 
community-level changes that may benefit the target population.
    Respondents: For the annual web-based partnership survey and weekly 
time text survey, 100 respondents from the grantee and key project 
partner at 7 demonstration sites. For the monthly web-based time 
survey, 35 supervisory staff.
    Estimated total number of hours needed to prepare the information 
collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, 
hours of response, and cost of response time: Based on the below 
assumptions and tables, we calculate the annual burden hours for the 
study to be 266.74 hours and the annual cost to be $7,123.92 and the 
total burden hours for the first three years of this study to be 800.22 
hours and the total cost for the first three years to be $21,371.76. 
Whereas the typical key project partner role is either a management or 
support role, we estimated the cost per response using the average of 
the most recent (May 2015) Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational 
Employment Statistics median hourly wages for the labor categories 
Social and Community Services Manager (11-9151) with a median hour wage 
of $30.54 and Community and Social Service Specialist, All Other (21-
1099) with a rate of $20.14. For the annual partnership survey and 
weekly text time survey, we averaged the median hourly wage for the two 
labor categories; this produces an average of both median hourly wage 
rates equal to $25.34. For the monthly supervisory time survey, we used 
only the Social and Community Services Manager rate.
