OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is conducting a demonstration and evaluation called the Supporting Health Marriage (SHM) Project. The project is a large-scale, multi-site, multi-year, rigorous test of marriage education programs for interested low-income married couples and is based on a substantial body of research that has shown a relationship between healthy marriages and a variety of positive child and family outcomes. The SHM Project is designed to inform program operators and policymakers of the most effective ways to help couples who voluntarily choose to participate in demonstrations designed to strengthen and maintain healthy marriages. The focus groups will provide key information about the perspectives of low-to-moderate-income couples regarding marriage, relationships, and marriage education programs; assist ACF and program managers in designing responsive healthy marriage programs; and will help to ensure that the project is testing the strongest possible program models for its target populations. Respondents: The respondents will be selected to represent low-to-moderate income couples in each of the following categories, whose views can help us to design effective SHM programs: Married couples and those planning to marry, couples with and without children, and couples who have had experience with marriage education programs as well as those who have not. There will also be an effort to include African American and Hispanic couples. Focus groups may be divided into separate discussions for those who are married and for those who are planning to marry.

positive child and family outcomes. The SHM Project is designed to 
inform program operators and policymakers of the most effective ways to 
help couples who voluntarily choose to participate in demonstrations 
designed to strengthen and maintain healthy marriages. The focus groups 
will provide key information about the perspectives of low-to-moderate-

education programs; assist ACF and program managers in designing 
responsive healthy marriage programs; and will help to ensure that the 
project is testing the strongest possible program models for its target

views can help us to design effective SHM programs: Married couples and 
those planning to marry, couples with and without children, and couples 
who have had experience with marriage education programs as well as 
those who have not. There will also be an effort to include African

for couples, for men only, and for women only.
