OMB Approval Number: 2501-0027.

Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) hosts events with a variety of groups nationwide designed to educate stakeholders about HUD initiatives and policies.

The information produced by the stakeholder surveys will allow HUD to measure the effectiveness of the stakeholder sessions and collect feedback on policy initiatives. The information can be used to shape policies, improve stakeholder events and make better use of HUD's limited time with stakeholders.

Respondents (i.e. affected public): HUD stakeholder groups that include (but are not limited to) public housing authorities, congressional members and staff, local government officials, assisted housing residents, HUD grantees, civil rights organizations, homeless advocacy organizations, the legal community, academics, organized labor representatives, HUD grantees, and members of the housing, nonprofit, Start Printed Page 43500philanthropic, business and faith-based sectors.
