A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: ConnectHome Use and Benefits Telephone Survey.
OMB Approval Number: 2528-New.
Type of Request: New collection.
Form Number: Survey.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: President Barack Obama and Secretary Julián Castro announced ConnectHome on July 15, 2015, as the next step in the Obama Administration's efforts to increase access to high-speed Internet access for all Americans. Through public-private partnerships, nonprofits, businesses, and Internet service providers (ISPs) ConnectHome will offer high-speed Internet service, devices, technical training, and digital literacy programs to residents of HUD assisted housing in 28 pilot communities, including the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
As communities begin to implement ConnectHome in 2016 and connect residents to internet within their homes, this telephone survey will illuminate how families are taking advantage of ConnectHome. The telephone survey will explore ConnectHome subscribers' previous broadband access, current and planned use patterns, and current and anticipated benefits of their at-home high-speed Internet access. The survey will particularly focus on educational Internet use such as completing homework, connecting parents with educators, and applying to college.
