Evaluating Our

Evaluating Our Strategies and Measuring Our Progress The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Modernization Act of 2010 calls upon agencies to use evaluation and research evidence to identify evidence-based strategies for reaching intended objectives. HUD continuously conducts research and evaluation to develop HUD’s strategies for achieving its strategic goals and to inform budgetary allocations based on information about the cost-effectiveness of HUD’s efforts. This Appendix summarizes recently completed and ongoing research and evaluations that are particularly informative for each of HUD’s strategic goals. Additionally, HUD conducts regular data-driven performance reviews—“HUDStat” meetings—which focus on quarterly progress towards achieving each of HUD’s priority goals. The Secretary and senior leadership from throughout the agency, and sometimes from partner agencies, attend these meetings to address challenges, review metrics, improve internal and external collaboration, and increase performance. For each objective, the Department will link specific contributing programs through its participation in the Federal Program Inventory. Progress on achieving each of the strategic objectives will be assessed during data-driven review meetings, published in HUD’s Annual Performance Report each year, and shared on THE RESEARCH ROADMAP HUD’s Research Roadmap FY 2014—FY 2018 identifies critical policy questions and will guide HUD’s research investments over the next four years. The Research Roadmap, published in July of 2013, is available at http:// Formulated by HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), the Roadmap is a highly collaborative, forward-looking effort to identify critical policy questions that should guide PD&R research investments over the next five years. The Roadmap team met with members of Congress, officials from the Office of Management and Budget, the Government Accountability Office, federal sister agencies, and numerous research, practitioner, and advocacy organizations to gather relevant feedback. Over 950 comments were received from stakeholders during the Roadmap’s development. To complete the Roadmap’s structured evaluation agenda, HUD seeks to expand successful use of competitive research grants and non-competitive research partnerships to better utilize external expertise in evaluating local innovations and program effectiveness. HUD’s Research Partnership program already supports a number of high value research projects aligned with HUD’s mission that were proposed by outside stakeholders and have secured a 50 percent match of funds from an external source. Research and Evaluations Informing Goal 1: Strengthen the Nation’s Housing Market To Bolster the Economy and Protect Consumers RECENTLY COMPLETED RESEARCH AND EVALUATIONS Analysis of Trends in Household Composition Using American Housing Survey Data. This research project used longitudinal American Housing Survey data to examine trends in household formation and the phenomenon of “doubled-up” households in the aftermath of the housing bubble and recession of 2007 142 Section Three: Additional Information

through 2009. The data show substantial increases in doubling up between 2003 and 2009, including a 12.9 percent increase in households with single adult offspring and a tripling of the number of households containing unrelated subfamilies. However, the increase in doubled-up households has not caused more crowding in housing units. Research and Evaluations Informing Goal 2: Meet the Need for Quality Affordable Rental Homes RECENTLY COMPLETED RESEARCH AND EVALUATIONS Redevelopment Agencies in California: History, Benefits, Excesses, and Closure. This staff working paper examined the history and impact of local redevelopment agencies in California, which were intended to combat blight. The redevelopment agencies had operated since the end of World War II and ceased operation in 2012. The agencies had served as an important component of the affordable housing development landscape in California, and the removal of this funding source is expected to decrease affordable housing development by 4,500 to 6,500 units annually through the foreseeable future. Impact of Oil and Gas Exploration on Affordable Housing. This internal research project examined the impact of oil and gas exploration on the affordable rental-housing market. The project found that energy exploration and the accompanying influx of workers typically put strong upward pressure on housing market rents. This upward pressure causes utilization rates of Housing Choice Vouchers to decline in these areas. Both HUD and state agencies have responded by increasing program flexibility and providing additional resources to these areas. UPCOMING RESEARCH AND EVALUATIONS Assessment of Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Housing Needs. At the request of Congress, HUD is assessing housing quality and affordability for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians and evaluating how the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA) has addressed those needs. An interim report, “Continuity and Change: Demographic, Socioeconomic, and Housing Conditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives,” describes trends in social, economic, and housing circumstances of these populations by using secondary sources. A full report on housing needs based on in-depth surveys of properties in Indian Country and interviews with housing providers is expected to be available in 2015. Housing Choice Voucher Program Administrative Fee Study. HUD is evaluating how much it costs for a housing agency to run an efficient HCV program, with the objective of supporting development of a funding formula for allocating administrative fees. The study is expected to be released in spring 2015. Worst Case Housing Needs 2013: Report to Congress. HUD periodically reports to Congress on the extent of severe housing problems affecting very low-income renters. The forthcoming report uses the most recent 2013 American Housing Survey data to examine trends during the recovery from the housing crisis and Great Recession. The previous report showed that worst case housing needs affected 8.5 million very low-income Section Three: Additional Information 143
