FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christina Yancey by email at ChiefEvaluationOffice@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background: As the only federal program wholly focused on employment services for veterans experiencing homelessness, HVRP sits at the nexus of these three critical policy arenas: veterans, employment, and housing. Since 1987, HVRP has assisted veterans experiencing homelessness through competitive grants to state, local, and tribal governments; local Workforce Development Boards; private for-project and non-profit organizations; and community organizations. In the most recent Program Year (PY) 2017, DOL announced awards to 155 grantees to support an estimated 21,000 veterans. These are one-year grants; a new set of grantees will receive PY 2018 awards. The HVRP Impact Evaluation is examining the effectiveness of the HVRP program, building evidence of HVRP’s effects on participants’ employment and earning-related outcomes. In addition, the evaluation will provide a better understanding of program models and variations, partnerships, and populations served. Goals of the specific data collection plan included in this Notice is to help DOL make informed decisions about what works best for whom and about effective ways to improve the service systems seeking to support veterans experiencing homelessness. The research questions to be answered by the planned data collection pertain to what impact the HVRP has on Veterans experiencing homelessness; how the HVRP impacts vary by individual, grantee, and community characteristics and how they vary by services and referrals available or received; how HVRPs are implemented; and how systems and E:\FR\FM\22FEN1.SGM 22FEN1
