Title of Proposal: HOPE VI—In-depth Assessment of Family and Neighborhood Outcomes—Wave Two of Panel Study.
Office: Public Housing Investments in the Office of Public and Indian Housing, HUD
OMB Approval Number: Extension of OMB #2577-0236.
Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: Questions have been raised among some observers of the HOPE VI program about where the original residents of the developments are living. The purposes of the information collected for this study is to increase knowledge of the ways in which housing choices and outcomes of original residents are affected by revitalization efforts at selected HOPE VI sites. Data gathered will be used by the Urban Institute and Abt Associates to prepare a project report that will allow HUD to begin assessing the benefits of HOPE VI for the original residents, particularly those that may accrue to families choosing to move to other locations, and to provide more guidance to grantees on relocation choices and strategies. This notice covers the second and third waves of a three-wave panel study. The survey for waves 2 and 3 will cover the same topic areas as were addressed in the baseline survey: housing and neighborhood conditions; adult and child health; child education; adult employment, income and hardship; and relocation from public housing.
Form Number: None.
Members of Affected Public: 887 randomly selected original residents of the five selected HOPE VI sites that have received HOPE VI grants between 1998 and 2000 and that have not begun relocating residents.
Frequency of Submission: Once.
