This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A.
The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on September 26, 2016 at 81 FR 66076.
A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Family Options Study: Long-Term Tracking.
OMB Approval Number: 2528-0259.
Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Form Number: None.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The purpose of this proposed information collection is to continue tracking the families that enrolled in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Family Options Study between September 2010 and January 2012. The Family Options Study is a multi-site experiment designed to test the impacts of different housing and services interventions on homeless families in five key domains: housing stability, family preservation, adult well-being, child well-being, and self-sufficiency. Families who enrolled in the Family Options Study were actively tracked for a minimum of three years after their enrollment into the study; the last outreach to families took place between March 2014 and March 2015. Both the design and the scale of the study provides a strong basis for conclusions about the relative impacts of the interventions over time; both the short-term (20 month) and long-term (37-month) impacts from this study yielded powerful evidence regarding the impact of a non-time-limited housing subsidy. It is possible, though, that some effects of the various interventions might take longer to emerge, particularly for child well-being. Therefore, HUD wishes to maintain contact with the sample of families in order to observe the longer-term effects of the interventions in a limited set of measures, and to assess the feasibility of an additional round of data collection in the future.
