Title of Proposal: Alternative Housing Pilot Program Evaluation Baseline Survey.

OMB Control Number, If applicable: 2528-0248.

Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use: The proposed information collection will collect baseline data from families before they received housing under FEMA's Alternative Housing Pilot Program. HUD is conducting an evaluation of AHPP. Four states affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita received AHPP grants to test out alternative approaches to providing temporary housing after a disaster. HUD is charged with measuring what benefits and costs are associated with each of the alternatives being implemented by the states. Measuring the program impact on health, satisfaction, and general well-being of the occupants are a key part of the evaluation. This baseline survey is needed to know the characteristics of eligible households applying to participate in the program.

Agency Form Numbers, if Applicable: None.

Members of Affected Public: Individuals and Households.
