Title of Proposal: HOPE VI Survey.
OMB Number: 257-7.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: One hundred original HOPE VI residents at eight sites will be surveyed by telephone using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI). The residents will provide information on housing choices available to and made by original residents, satisfaction with current housing neighborhood locations, current living conditions, attitudes toward services received through the HOPE VI Program, and current employment status. The information will help HUD increase knowledge of the ways in which housing choices and social and economic outcomes for original residents are affected by revitalization efforts at selected HOPE VI sites. Data gathered will be used by the Urban Institute and a contractor to prepare a project report for HUD. HUD and local housing agencies could benefit greatly from learning more about what happens to original families. An incentive payment of $20.00 will be made to respondents participating in this survey in order to ensure a high response rate.
Agency form numbers: None.
Members of affected public: Individuals or households.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: 100 residents at eight HOPE VI sites, one-time, 20 minutes (16,000 total minutes), 266 total reporting burden.
Status of the proposed information collection: New.Start Signature
