Aug 1 -- The Office of Policy Development and Research at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is proposing the collection of information for the Evaluation of Moving to Work Cohort 4 Landlord Incentives and invites public comment by September 30, 2022.
Congress authorized HUD in 2016 to add 100 PHAs to the Moving to Work Demonstration and mandated that HUD use the expansion to test the impact of specific policies intended to improve the efficacy of PHA programs. The Moving to Work Cohort 4 Landlord Incentives will investigate whether offering incentives to landlords to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program will increase the number of participating landlords and improve the lease-up rate of households with a housing choice voucher.
After OMB approval of the Paperwork Reduction Act package, Abt Associates will conduct the research over a 3-year period, including the following: conduct a baseline web-based survey of sampled PHAs, baseline site interviews with PHA staff, phone interviews with PHA staff, a follow-up web survey with PHA staff, follow-up site visits at PHA locations, and interviews with landlords in sampled cities.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,093.
