The state minimum wages were weighted by the number of study participants in each state. State minimum wage rates were found on the DOL website (https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/minimum-wage/). The minimum wages in 7 states are: California ($12.00), Florida ($8.56), Maryland ($11.00), Missouri ($9.45), New Jersey ($11.00), Ohio ($7.25), and Texas ($7.25). 3 To compute the total estimated annual cost, the total estimated annual burden hours were multiplied by the hourly cost per response. The calculation assumes 429 total annual burden hours if all 1,300 study participants respond to the survey. B.

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Family Self-Sufficiency program 
(FSS) long-term follow-up Survey.
    OMB Approval Number: 2506-New.
    Type of Request: New.
    Form Number: N/A
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: In 
2012, HUD commissioned the national Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) 
Study. MDRC was selected to lead this evaluation. As part of the 
longer-term follow-up, which HUD authorized in 2018--and extends 
through 2021, MDRC will conduct a long-term follow-up survey with a 
sample of individuals who enrolled in the study and were randomly 
assigned to a program group (offered the opportunity to enroll in FSS 
and receive services) or a control group. The survey will allow us to 
understand the FSS program's long-term effects on indicators of 
economic self-sufficiency (employment and income, for example) and 
well-being (health, financial, material, housing, for example). The 
survey will also provide an opportunity to understand the program 
participation experiences of FSS participants in the study who continue 
to be enrolled in FSS and those who exited for a variety of reasons, 
including graduation from FSS. No other comprehensive data source 
exists to provide the type of information that will be collected by 
this follow-up survey.

  the Federal notice.
\2\ To compute the hourly cost per response, MDRC used the weighted average state minimum wage of the 18 study sites, as of October 1, 2020. The state
  minimum wages were weighted by the number of study participants in each state. State minimum wage rates were found on the DOL website (https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/minimum-wage/). The minimum wages in 7 states are: California ($12.00), Florida ($8.56), Maryland ($11.00), Missouri ($9.45),
  New Jersey ($11.00), Ohio ($7.25), and Texas ($7.25).
\3\ To compute the total estimated annual cost, the total estimated annual burden hours were multiplied by the hourly cost per response. The calculation
  assumes 429 total annual burden hours if all 1,300 study participants respond to the survey.
