Title of Proposal: How's HUD Doing in 2005? A HUD Partners Survey.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: HUD's Annual Performance Plan requires the Department to measure the satisfaction level of its partners. A baseline satisfaction survey was conducted and published in 2001. This proposed effort, a follow-up to the 2001 study, is a survey of the people and organizations HUD works with to implement its programs, in particular: local governments, housing agencies, community development departments, fair housing agencies, multi-family housing entities, and nonprofit housing organizations.
Members of affected public: Members of the following groups will be surveyed: local elected officials, city and county community development department directors, public housing authority directors, owners of HUD-assisted multifamily housing properties, directors of nonprofit organizations, and fair housing agency directors.
Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: Approximately 2,500 partners will be surveyed on a one-time basis. Consistent with the baseline study, each survey is expected to take 19 minutes. Total burden hours are 792.
Status of the proposed information collection: Pending OMB approval.Start Signature
