Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection To OMB; Consumer Perceptions of Factory-Built Housing
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. This request is for the clearance of a survey instrument that would gauge current consumer perceptions of factory-built housing technologies with as primary focus on panelized and modular housing. One of the strategic goals outlined in HUD's Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing is the increased focus on attitudes, behaviors, and motives surrounding innovation. Measuring consumer perceptions of factory-build housing provides such insight, and will also provide otherwise unavailable information essential to measuring the effectiveness of PATH's outreach and promotional campaigns.
