Title of Proposal: Housing Condition Assessment (Pilot Study).
OMB Approval Number: 2528-XXXX.
Form Number: None.
Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: Housing is the most basic and important part of the infrastructure in the United States and worldwide. Its direct and indirect impact on the economy and public welfare is far reaching. While increasing homeownership opportunities has benefits, it presents certain challenges to the future of housing in the United States. For example, housing production and resource utilization is stretched to meet the housing demand of a diverse and growing population. To continue to meet this demand, conventional methods need to be improved while innovative materials and methods need to rise to meet the challenge in a responsible, but competitive manner. This challenge can only be effectively met by better understanding the performance of the existing housing stock and developing improved technologies, including both design and construction practices that lead to better and more affordable homes for all Americans.
Respondents: New Collection.
Frequency of Submission: Individuals or Households.
