Title of the Collection: Domestic Violence Housing First Demonstration Evaluation.
Type of Collection: Revision.
OMB No.: 0990-0458.
Abstract: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the Office for Victims of Crimes within the U.S. Department of Justice, is seeking approval by OMB for a revision to add a 24-month follow-up data collection to an existing information collection request entitled, “Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) Demonstration Evaluation” (OMB Control Number: HHS-OS-0990-0458). The Washington State Coalition against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) is overseeing and coordinating an evaluation of the DVHF Demonstration project through a contract with ASPE. This quasi-experimental research study involves longitudinally examining the program effects of DVHF on domestic violence survivors' safety and housing stability. The findings will be of interest to the general public, to policy-makers, and to organizations working with domestic violence survivors.
Current data collection that has been approved by OMB includes in-depth, private interviews with 320 domestic violence survivors conducted by trained professional staff. The data are currently approved for collection at study enrollment (Time 1), and at follow-up interviews every six months after the Time 1 Interview (i.e., 6, 12, and 18 months) to examine the match between needs and services, as well as their safety and housing stability. The proposed revision to the collection would add a fourth follow-up data collection to be administered 24 months after study enrollment (Time 1) to examine longer-term impacts of the Domestic Violence Housing First Demonstration program. The follow-up survey is identical to the one used at the 6, 12, and 18 month follow-up. The respondents are domestic violence survivors who are enrolled in the Domestic Violence Housing First Demonstration Evaluation (OMB Control Number HHS-OS-0990-0458). Study enrollment is taking place over 15 months, so the annualized burden for the 24-month follow-up survey is based on 12/15 (256) of the expected sample (320).
