Title of Proposal:Electronic Stakeholder Survey.

OMB Control Number:XXXX-pending.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use:The Electronic Stakeholder Survey is necessary to collect information for demonstrating the outputs and outcomes of meetings, conferences, and other activities presented by HUD's Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation (IPI).

The Office for International and Philanthropic Innovation (IPI) supports HUD's efforts to find new solutions and align ideas and resources by working across public, private, and civil sectors to further HUD's mission. IPI works towards these goals by developing networks and facilitating collaboration of key partners and resources. To gather feedback on the various meetings, conferences, and other events and activities IPI presents, it is necessary to survey participants at both immediate and medium-term intervals. IPI is seeking to understand the effectiveness of these events in sharing information, connecting participants, establishing plans for coordination, and influencing programmatic, research, and funding agendas and resources. As we increase the effectiveness of these cross-sector convenings, HUD benefits from increased access to and synthesis of information regarding successes and failures in domestic and global housing and urban development. Residents and communities across the country also benefit from the increased impact achieved by alignment of cross-sector resources and ideas.

Members of affected public:Individuals.
