Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 23009-23010 [2017-10150]

Download as PDF 23009 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 96 / Friday, May 19, 2017 / Notices 4. Reduction in crime or domestic violence 5. Improvement in family economic selfsufficiency 6. Improvement in the coordination and referrals for other community resources and supports As part of their implementation plans, Tribal MIECHV grantees are required to propose a plan for meeting the benchmark requirements specified in the legislation and must report data annually to HHS, with improvement assessed at the end of Year 4 and Year 5 of their 5-year grants, (i.e. after 3 years of implementation and at the end of their 5-year grant). The Tribal HV Form 2 will be used by Tribal MIECHV grantees to begin collecting performance data in October 2017 (pending approval of their benchmark plans) and then reporting performance data starting in October 2018, pending OMB approval. The Tribal HV Form 2 is new to the MIECHV Program information system and is remotely similar to the currentlyapproved Tribal HV Form 3 (OMB #0915–0357). The creation of Tribal HV Form 2 is due to the added level of specificity and revised performance reporting requirements for grantees to report benchmarks data. Specifically, ACF will use the proposed Tribal HV Form 2 to: • Track and improve the quality of benchmark measure data submitted by the Tribal MIECHV grantees; • Improve program monitoring and oversight; and • Ensure adequate and timely reporting of program data to relevant federal agencies and stakeholders including the Congress, and members of the public. Tribal HV Form 2 will provide a template for Tribal MIECHV grantees to report data on their progress under the six benchmark areas. Overall, this information collection will provide valuable information to HHS that will guide understanding of Tribal MIECHV grantees and the provision of technical assistance.

OMB No.: 0970–0382. Description: Section 676 of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act requires States, including the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories applying for CSBG funds to submit an application and plan (Model State Plan). The CSBG State Plan submitted by States must meet statutory requirements prior to being funded with CSBG funds. Applicants have the option to submit a detailed plan annually or biannually. Entities that submit a biannual plan must provide an abbreviated plan the following year if substantial changes to the initial plan will occur. In 2015, the Model State Plan was substantially revised by automating the form, streamlining the information, and incorporating accountability measures that include customer satisfaction information from eligible entities that receive a proportional share of CSBG funding through State CSBG lead agencies along with technical assistance, monitoring, and other programmatic support. In fall 2015, the Office of Community Services (OCS) used the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) to obtain feedback from CSBG eligible entities about services provided by the state CSBG Lead Agencies, as detailed in the new State Accountability Measures. OCS also obtained feedback from state CSBG Lead Agencies on services provided by the federal agency, as outlined in the new Federal Accountability Measures. Both OCS and state CSBG Directors received their state survey results in February 2016. To support ongoing implementation of state accountability measures related to customer satisfaction from eligible entities, OCS plans to survey eligible entities using the ACSI survey instrument. No changes are planned from the content of the 2015 survey. Respondents: CSBG eligible entities.
