A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: EnVision Centers Implementation Evaluation.
OMB Approval Number: 2528-New.
Type of Request: New collection.
Form Number: NA.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This request is for the collection of information for an implementation evaluation of EnVision Centers. EnVision Centers offer collocated and integrated services with the goal of helping low-income persons achieve self-sufficiency. Using leveraged resources from local and federal partnerships, HUD encourages EnVision Centers to target and integrate services within four main pillars: Economic empowerment, educational advancement, health and wellness, and character and leadership. In June 2018, HUD designated 18 EnVision Centers as part of the initiative's first cohort of designations and has since expanded the initiative with over 90 EnVision Centers to date. This creates a critical need to gain an in-depth understanding from local stakeholders of implementation efforts to date, which will help develop and guide the initiative while establishing a framework of knowledge for future program monitoring and evaluation efforts. The evaluation team will collect data from sites using qualitative, semi-structured interviews with four groups of key local stakeholders: Site leadership, front line staff, participants, and representatives from organizations (partners) that provide services and resources to the EnVision Center. The interviews will primarily seek to understand how communities selected and established their center, the process for centralized intake and participant level data collection, and how new partnerships and services have developed since the center's designation. Through an Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA), the Library of Congress' Federal Research Division will conduct the evaluation under guidance from HUD.Start Printed Page 11325
