OMB No.: 0970–0255. Description: The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, Pub. L. 104– 193, established the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program under title IV–A of the Social Security Act (the Act), 42 U.S.C. 401 et seq. Section 403(a)(4) of the Act requires the Secretary to award bonuses to ‘‘high performing States.’’ (Indian tribes are not eligible for these bonuses.) The term ‘‘high performing State’’ is defined in section 403(a)(4) of the Act to mean a State that is most successful in achieving the purposes of the TANF program as specified in section 401(a) of the Act. The final rule covering the TANF high performance bonuses to States in FY 2002 and beyond was published August 30, 2000 (65 FR 52814) followed by an interim final rule published May 10, 2001 (66 FR 23854). The final and interim final rules set forth how the Child Care Bureau (CCB) will compute scores and rank States on the three components, i.e., Accessibility, Affordability, and Quality, that comprise the child care measure. In FY 2002, CCB measured State performance on a composite ranking of two components, i.e., Accessibility and Affordability (based on FY 2001 performance data). No additional reporting burden was required since the data/information for the Accessibility and Affordability components are reported under the Child Care Development Fund program (ACF Reports 800 and 801). However, there was a reporting burden (related to the Quality component) for the information States submitted if they wished to compete on the child care measure beginning in FY 2003 and again in FY 2004 (based on FY 2002 and FY 2003 performance data, respectively). The same requirements must be met for States wishing to compete on the child care measure for FY 2005 (based on FY 2004 performance data). The information includes: (1) All age-specified rates for children 0–13 years of age reported by the child day care centers and family day care homes responding to the State’s market rate survey; and (2) The provider’s county or, if the State uses multi-county regions to measure market rates or set maximum payment rates, the administrative region.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Child Care Report for High Performance Bonus.
    OMB No.: 0970-0255.
    Description: The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity 
Reconciliation Act of 1996, Pub. L. 104-193, established the Temporary 
Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program under title IV-A of the 
Social Security Act (the Act), 42 U.S.C. 401 et seq. Section 403(a)(4) 
of the Act requires the Secretary to award bonuses to ``high performing 
States.'' (Indian tribes are not eligible for these bonuses.) The term 
``high performing State'' is defined in section 403(a)(4) of the Act to 
mean a State that is most successful in achieving the purposes of the 
TANF program as specified in section 401(a) of the Act.
    The final rule covering the TANF high performance bonuses to States 
in FY 2002 and beyond was published August 30, 2000 (65 FR 52814) 
followed by an interim final rule published May 10, 2001 (66 FR 23854). 
The final and interim final rules set forth how the Child Care Bureau 
(CCB) will compute scores and rank States on the three components, 
i.e., Accessibility, Affordability, and Quality, that comprise the 
child care measure.
    In FY 2002, CCB measured State performance on a composite ranking 
of two components, i.e., Accessibility and Affordability (based on FY 
2001 performance data). No additional reporting burden was required 
since the data/information for the Accessibility and Affordability 
components are reported under the Child Care Development Fund program 
(ACF Reports 800 and 801). However, there was a reporting burden 
(related to the Quality component) for the information States submitted 
if they wished to compete on the child care measure beginning in FY 
2003 and again in FY 2004 (based on FY 2002 and FY 2003 performance 
data, respectively). The same requirements must be met for States 
wishing to compete on the child care measure for FY 2005 (based on FY 
2004 performance data). The information includes:
    (1) All age-specified rates for children 0-13 years of age reported 
by the child day care centers and family day care homes responding to 
the State's market rate survey; and
    (2) The provider's county or, if the State uses multi-county 
regions to measure market rates or set maximum payment rates, the 
administrative region.
    Respondents: States, the District of Columbia, and Territories 
including Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and 
the Northern Marianna Islands.
