The Department will submit the proposed information collection to OMB for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended).
This Notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
Title of Proposal: Brief Survey of HUD Lead Hazard Control Grantees
OMB Control Number: Not applicable.
Need For the Information and Proposed Use: This information collection is required to assist in the design of a study to evaluate the effectiveness of lead hazard control interventions performed on private housing by a sample of the recipients of HUD lead hazard control grants (grant recipients include state or local governments). A similar study has been completed for a sample of 12 recipients of LHC grants from Rounds 1 and 2 of the grant program (awards made in 1992 and 1993). A new evaluation study is needed to assess the effectiveness of LHC interventions performed by a sample of LHC grants from Rounds 3 through 7 of the program. The new evaluation is needed to asses factors or conditions that could not be assessed in the completed study (e.g., novel intervention protocols, communities in different geographic areas).
A brief survey will be conducted of potential study participants to provide information to be used in selecting a sample of final study participants. This research should contribute to an eventual reduction in the national prevalence of childhood lead poisoning.
Agency Form Numbers: None.
Members of Affected Public: State or local government recipients of HUD lead hazard control grants during Rounds 3-7 of the grant program (1994-2000).
Total Burden Estimate (first year):
Total Estimated Hours: 375.
