Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Resident Opportunity and SelfSufficiency Service Coordinator (ROSS– SC) Program Evaluation. OMB Approval Number: 2528–New. Type of Request: New. Form Number: No forms. PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49411 Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD is conducting this study under contract with the Urban Institute and its subcontractors (EJP Consulting). The project is an evaluation of the Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency Service Coordinator (ROSS–SC) program operated by grantees across the country. It will include a national webbased survey and in-person site visits to select grantees. Since 2008, the ROSS– SC program has provided information and referral for families, elderly, and disabled residents in public housing by funding local Service Coordinators to link residents to resources that they need to become independent and selfsufficient. The purpose of the program is to leverage existing local public and private services to increase income, reduce or eliminate welfare assistance, work towards economic independence and housing self-sufficiency, and improve living conditions and ability to age in-place for elderly and disabled residents. To date, there has been no HUD-funded evaluation of this program. A GAO study across several HUD selfsufficiency programs published in 2013 found that the ROSS–SC program lacked enough quality data on participation and outcomes ‘‘to determine whether it was meeting goals of the effective and efficient use of resources’’ in improving resident self-sufficiency and independence. They recommended improving the data reporting process and developing a strategy for regularly analyzing ROSS–SC participation and outcome data. This project helps implement GAO’s recommendations by: (1) Assessing improvements in program processes and reporting since changes were made to the program’s logic model in FY 2014; (2) examining the breadth and depth of ROSS–SC program implementation by current service coordinators across all grantee types; and (3) analyzing current reporting requirements and performance metrics to improve future program outcome evaluation. To do so, this study will use a full population survey of current service coordinators funded through ROSS–SC grants made in FY 2013, FY 2014, and FY 2015, and site visits to select grantees. A web-based survey will allow the study team to investigate important Service Coordinator (SC) program characteristics not included in grant applications or current reporting tools, in order to provide generalizable evidence on the ‘‘effective and efficient use of resources’’ across all ROSS–SC service coordinators. These include SC qualifications and experience, program E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
