ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.

HUD is conducting an evaluation of FEMA's Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHPP). Due to the immediate need to improve the temporary housing situation for many victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, FEMA is rapidly developing the alternative housing. In order to measure program effectiveness, the evaluation requires that we do a baseline evaluation of households before they receive a housing unit. Because it has taken longer than expected for FEMA's AHPP to be Start Printed Page 14478implemented in some States, new households continue to join the program and so there is a need to continue the administration to the baseline survey beyond March 2007 when the original clearance expires.
