SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To further build the evidence around 
effective strategies for helping low-income individuals find and 
sustain employment, OPRE is conducting the NextGen Project. This 
project will identify and test up to 10 innovative, promising 
employment interventions designed to help individuals facing complex 
challenges secure a pathway toward economic independence. These 
challenges may be physical and mental health conditions, a criminal 
history, or limited work skills and experience. The project is actively

    The NextGen Project will use a two-phased approach for approval of 
this proposed information collection activity. In Phase 1 (current 
request) the research team seeks approval to formally recruit programs, 
to administer the informed consent form and baseline participant 
survey, and to collect identifying and contact information for study 
participants. The project intends for these data collections to be 
uniform across programs selected for evaluation and it does not 
anticipate that they will require revisions.
    Under Phase 2 of the request, the project will update the 
information collection request for the remaining instruments to tailor 
to each program selected for the evaluation, as needed.
    The proposed information collection activities cover an 
experimental impact study, descriptive study, and cost study. Data 
collection activities for the impact study include: (1) Baseline survey 
and identifying and contact information data collection, (2) a first 
follow-up survey, and (3) a second follow-up survey. Data collection 
activities for the descriptive study include: (1) Service receipt 
tracking; (2) staff characteristics survey; (3) program leadership 
survey; (4) semi-structured program discussion guide (conducted with 
program leaders, supervisors, partners, staff, and providers); (5) 
semi-structured employer discussion guide (for those interventions that 
include an employer component); and (6) in-depth participant 
interviews. Data collection activities for the cost study include an 
Excel-based cost workbook.
    Respondents: Program staff, program partners, employer staff, and 
individuals enrolled in the NextGen Project. Program staff and partners 
may include case managers, health professionals, workshop instructors, 
job developers, supervisors, managers, and administrators. Employers 
may include administrators, human resources staff, and worksite 
supervisors.
