This Notice informs the public that the U.S. Start Printed Page 67245Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to OMB, for emergency processing, a proposed reinstatement of data collection under OMB Control No. 2528-0256. The Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) was implemented in 2007 to provide rental assistance and case management services to eligible families displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The amount and terms of the rental assistance provided varied over time. Researchers are documenting families as they transition from subsidized to market rate or alternative housing assistance programs and measuring outcomes over time. The DHAP IRT study's findings will assist the Department to understand how to most effectively return recipients of housing assistance to market rate housing following a disaster.
Approximately 1,425 recipients of DHAP assistance responded to an interim survey about their experiences with the program (conducted under OMB Control No. 2528-0256). The purpose of the reinstatement is to conduct follow-up contacts with the respondents to the earlier survey to confirm contact information, current housing and household status, and any potential future moves that might impact the researchers' ability to contact the respondent for a 12-month follow-up telephone survey. The follow-up contact is necessary to maximize the response rate for the 12-month follow-up telephone survey.
This Notice also lists the following information:
