A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Surveys of Recipients and Providers of Technical Assistance (TA) and Training.
OMB Approval Number: 2528-0325 (Previously 2506-0212).
Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
Form Number: N/A.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The surveys in this collection of information are necessary to systematically gather user feedback and outcomes data to evaluate and improve HUD's deployment and management of its technical assistance (TA) resources. The data will be used to comprehensively evaluate the Community Compass program, identify areas for improvement in the program, evaluate the effectiveness of HUD TA interventions, identify trends in TA needs, support the measurement of past performance for future TA NOFAs, and help HUD identify risk within its TA Provider pool. Survey results will also be used by TA Providers and HUD staff to improve individual TA and training engagements.
The previously approved Information Collection (OMB Control No: 2506-0212) included the Community Development Marketplace (CDM) Project Intake Survey and the Survey of Community Partners Receiving HUD Staff-Led Technical Assistance. These surveys are no longer active and thus are not included in this information collection revision.
