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 Supportive Services Demonstration. OMB Approval Number: 2528–0321. Type of Request: Revision. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request is for the clearance of additional data collection for the evaluation of HUD’s Supportive Services Demonstration (SSD), also referred to as Integrated Wellness in Supportive Housing (IWISH). The SSD is a threeyear demonstration sponsored by HUD to test the impact of a new model of khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Information collection Number of respondents housing-based supportive services on the healthcare utilization and housing stability of low-income older adults. The goal of the SSD model is to help older adults in HUD-assisted housing to age in place successfully. The SSD model funds a full-time Resident Wellness Director (RWD) and part-time Wellness Nurse (WN) to work in HUDassisted housing developments that either predominantly or exclusively serve households headed by people aged 62 or over. These services are not typically available in HUD-assisted housing developments for this population and are anticipated to positively impact outcomes. Eligible HUD-assisted properties applied for the demonstration and were randomly assigned to one of three groups: A ‘‘treatment group’’ that received grant funding to hire a RWD and WN and implement the SSD model (40 properties); an ‘‘active control’’ group that did not receive grant funding but received a stipend to participate in the evaluation (40 properties); and a ‘‘passive control’’ group that received neither grant funding nor a stipend (44 properties). The random assignment permits an evaluation that quantifies the impact of the SSD model by comparing outcomes at the 40 treatment group properties to outcomes at the 84 properties in the active and passive control groups. Under contract with HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research, Abt Associates Inc. is conducting a two-part evaluation—a process study to describe the implementation of the demonstration and an impact study to measure the impact of the SSD model on residents’ use of healthcare services and housing stability. The evaluation features analysis of administrative data and primary data collection. The following primary data collection activities have already received OMB approval: Questionnaires with staff from the treatment and active control properties, site visits and in-depth interviews with staff from the treatment and active control properties, and focus Frequency of response Responses per annum Burden hour per response groups with residents of the treatment and active control properties and with caregivers of residents of the treatment properties. This request is for a final round of data collection through: (1) Interviews with RWD at the 40 treatment group properties; (2) interviews with WN at the 40 treatment group properties; (3) interviews with Service Coordinators at the 40 active control properties; and (4) interviews with representatives of the 28 organizations that own or manage the 40 treatment properties. The purpose of these activities is to collect data from multiple perspectives about implementation experience with the demonstration, the strengths and weakness of the model, and how resident wellness activities compare across treatment and control properties. This information is necessary to complete the study of the demonstration’s implementation— providing input from key stakeholders as of the end of the demonstration. The new information will complement the research already collected at the start and mid-point of the demonstration and will offer stakeholders a final opportunity to provide their input on the demonstration. Respondents: Staff working at the properties in the study’s treatment and active control groups and representatives of the organizations that own or manage the treatment group properties. Estimated Number of Respondents: 156. Estimated Time per Response: 1.5 hours (up to 1 hour for the interview and up to 0.5 hours for preparation). Frequency of Response: 1 time.

Title of Information Collection: Strategies for Removing the Regulatory Impediments to the Financing and Siting of Factory-Built Housing in American Communities. OMB Approval Number: N/A. Type of Request (i.e., new, revision or extension of currently approved collection): New collection. Form Number: N/A. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: To assess the cost-effectiveness of factorybuilt housing as a potential affordable housing option in urban and suburban communities, HUD seeks to better understand the regulatory barriers preventing or limiting the use of factorybuilt housing. This study is framed by the general research question: What are the main drivers or barriers to the financing, siting and development of factory-built housing systems in various communities? A significant portion of PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the work of this study will involve identifying the types of barriers, their potential impact (or stringency), and their use in various communities. This process will involve research on several different communities in order to develop a typology of different barriers, catalog the community contexts where different barriers are more prevalent, and develop opportunity cost estimates of different barriers in different contexts. Information will be collected online and by telephone from local land use planning officials and manufacturers and dealers of factorybuilt housing to help determine the extent to which regulatory barriers limit the development of factory-built housing systems as an affordable housing option. Members of affected public: This study will involve collecting information from two primary groups (1) Local land use planning officials (2) Manufacturers and dealers of factorybuilt housing. Estimated Number of Respondents: 125. The objective of this study is to conduct in-depth telephone interviews with local land use planning officials on regulatory barriers to factory-built housing from a sample of 30 communities, for a total of 30 completed interviews. The study team anticipates contacting multiple individuals in the land use planning department from each sampled community to ascertain the targeted respondent. Therefore, the total estimated number of community respondents is estimated at 120 (i.e., 4 persons per community). In-depth interviews will also be conducted with 5 manufacturers or dealers of factorybuilt housing. Estimated Time per Response: 0.36 hours. The estimated time per response will vary depending on the respondent category (e.g., informant vs. respondent) and may range from 5 to 45 minutes. Indepth interviews will not exceed 45 minutes. Across all study respondents, the average estimated time per response is 0.36 hours. Frequency of Response: Once. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 45 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: The only cost to respondents is that of their time estimated to be $1,740. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: The survey is conducted under Title 12, United States Code, Section 1701Z and Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44, U.S.C., 35, as amended.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Evaluation of the Supportive 
Services Demonstration.
    OMB Approval Number: 2528-0321.
    Type of Request: Revision.
    Form Number: N/A.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This 
request is for the clearance of additional data collection for the 
evaluation of HUD's Supportive Services Demonstration (SSD), also 
referred to as Integrated Wellness in Supportive Housing (IWISH). The 
SSD is a three-year demonstration sponsored by HUD to test the impact 
of a new model of housing-based supportive services on the healthcare 
utilization and housing stability of low-income older adults. The goal 
of the SSD model is to help older adults in HUD-assisted housing to age 
in place successfully. The SSD model funds a full-time Resident 
Wellness Director (RWD) and part-time Wellness Nurse (WN) to work in 
HUD-assisted housing developments that either predominantly or 
exclusively serve households headed by people aged 62 or over. These 
services are not typically available in HUD-assisted housing 
developments for this population and are anticipated to positively 
impact outcomes.
    Eligible HUD-assisted properties applied for the demonstration and 
were randomly assigned to one of three groups: A ``treatment group'' 
that received grant funding to hire a RWD and WN and implement the SSD 
model (40 properties); an ``active control'' group that did not receive 
grant funding but received a stipend to participate in the evaluation 
(40 properties); and a ``passive control'' group that received neither 
grant funding nor a stipend (44 properties). The random assignment 
permits an evaluation that quantifies the impact of the SSD model by 
comparing outcomes at the 40 treatment group properties to outcomes at 
the 84 properties in the active and passive control groups.
    Under contract with HUD's Office of Policy Development and 
Research, Abt Associates Inc. is conducting a two-part evaluation--a 
process study to describe the implementation of the demonstration and 
an impact study to measure the impact of the SSD model on residents' 
use of healthcare services and housing stability. The evaluation 
features analysis of administrative data and primary data collection. 
The following primary data collection activities have already received 
OMB approval: Questionnaires with staff from the treatment and active 
control properties, site visits and in-depth interviews with staff from 
the treatment and active control properties, and focus groups with 
residents of the treatment and active control properties and with 
caregivers of residents of the treatment properties. This request is 
for a final round of data collection through: (1) Interviews with RWD 
at the 40 treatment group properties; (2) interviews with WN at the 40 
treatment group properties; (3) interviews with Service Coordinators at 
the 40 active control properties; and (4) interviews with 
representatives of the 28 organizations that own or manage the 40 
treatment properties. The purpose of these activities is to collect 
data from multiple perspectives about implementation experience with 
the demonstration, the strengths and weakness of the model, and how 
resident wellness activities compare across treatment and control 
properties. This information is necessary to complete the study of the 
demonstration's implementation--providing input from key stakeholders 
as of the end of the demonstration. The new information will complement 
the research already collected at the start and mid-point of the 
demonstration and will offer stakeholders a final opportunity to 
provide their input on the demonstration.
    Respondents: Staff working at the properties in the study's 
treatment and active control groups and representatives of the 
organizations that own or manage the treatment group properties.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 156.
    Estimated Time per Response: 1.5 hours (up to 1 hour for the 
interview and up to 0.5 hours for preparation).
    Frequency of Response: 1 time.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 234.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $10,639.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
