Title of Proposal: Survey of HUD Homeownership Fair Attendees.

Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development plans to survey persons as they arrive to attend HUD's Homeownership Fairs in June. HUD is conducting the survey to determine the demographic characteristics of people who attend, how they heard about the fair, and what they hope to learn from attending the Fair. HUD will not collect the name or other identifying information from those attending. The purpose of collecting this data is to better design the marketing and content of future Homeownership Fairs. The three research questions are: (1) Is the fair attracting a broad demographic spectrum of potential homebuyers? (2) What advertising source led to attendees of different demographic backgrounds attending? (3) What types of information were attendees hoping to learn at the Fair? The Homeownership Fairs are to be conducted as part of Homeownership Month in June 2005. The Fairs will be conducted in four communities, Albuquerque, Cincinnati, Orlando, and New Orleans. As estimated 4,000 people will attend the fairs.

OMB Control Number: Pending OMB approval.

Agency Form Numbers: None.

Members of Affected Public: Attendees of HUD Homeownership Fair. Estimated of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of responses, and hours of response: An estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection is 320, number of respondents is 4,000, frequency of response is 1 per annum, and the total hours per respondent is 0.048.
