[FR Doc. 05–8214 Filed 4–22–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4184–01–M DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS) Assessment Review Guide (SARGE). OMB No.: 0970–0159. Description: The Department of Health and Human Services cannot fulfill its obligation to effectively serve the nation’s adoption and foster care populations, nor report meaningful and reliable information to Congress about the extent of problems facing these children or the effectiveness of assistance provided to this population, without access to timely and accurate information. Currently, SACWIS supports State efforts to meet the following Federal reporting requirements: the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) required by section 479(b)(2) of the Social Security Act; the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS); Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA); and the Chafee Independent Living Program. These systems also support State efforts to provide the information to conduct the Child and Family Services Reviews. Currently, forty-five States and the District of Columbia have developed, or are developing, a SACWIS with Federal financial participation. The purpose of these reviews is to ensure that all aspects of the project, as described in 21203 the approved Advance Planning Document, have been adequately completed, and conform to applicable regulations and policies. To initiate a review, States will submit the completed SACWIS Assessment Review Guide (SARGE) and other documentation at the point that they have completed system development and the system is operational statewide. The additional documents submitted as part of this process should all be readily available to the State as a result of good project management practices. The information collected in the SACWIS Assessment Review Guide will allow State and Federal officials to determine if the State’s SACWIS meets the requirements for title IV–E Federal Financial Participation (FFP) defined at 45 CFR 1355.50. Additionally, other States will be able to use the documentation provided as part of this review process in their own system development efforts. Respondents: State Title IV–E Agencies.

Due Date for Applications: Application is due June 24, 2005. Executive Summary: Funds are provided for Graduate Student Research Grants to Support field-initiated research activities. This grant program is part of a larger set of Head Start research announcements. Three other grant funding mechanisms are being offered VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:51 Oct 19, 2009 Jkt 220001 180 53 concurrently with the one described in this announcement. They include: (1) Head Start Graduate Student Research Partnership Development Grants, (2) Head Start-University Partnership Research Grants: Curriculum Development and Enhancement for Head Start and Early Head Start Programs, and (3) American IndianAlaska Native Head Start-University Partnerships. For more information, please see these other Head Start Research announcements listed in the Federal Register or listed on http:// www.Grants.Gov, or send an inquiry to the e-mail address listed above. Funding for this grant program is shared with the Head Start Graduate Student Research Partnership Development Grants. Relative funding for the two sets of Head Start Graduate Student Research Grants is contingent upon the results of the review process. I. Funding Opportunity Description A. Purpose The purpose of this announcement is to report the availability of funds for Head Start Graduate Student Research Grants to support field-initiated research activities in partnership with Head Start programs. B. Statutory Authority Section 649 of the Head Start Act, as amended by the Coats Human Services Reauthorization Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105–285), codified at 42 U.S.C. 9844. Administration for Children and Families C. Background Since 1991, ACF has explicitly supported the relationship between established Head Start researchers and their graduate students by awarding research grants, on behalf of specific graduate students, to conduct research in Head Start communities. As many previously funded Head Start graduate students have continued to make significant contributions to the early childhood research field as they have pursued their careers, this funding mechanism is an important research capacity-building effort. To ensure that future research is responsive to the changing needs of low-income families, graduate students need strong and positive role models. Therefore, Head Start’s support of the PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Number of responses per respondent 1 1 Average burden hours per response 6 6 Total burden hours 1,080 318 partnership between students and their mentors is essential. The unique partnership that is forged between mentor and student within the Head Start research context serves as a model for the establishment of other partnerships within the community (e.g., researcher-Head Start staff, researcher-family, etc.). This foundation helps foster the skills necessary to build a graduate student’s trajectory of successful partnership-building and contributions to the scientific community. Within this nurturing and supportive relationship, young researchers are empowered to become autonomous researchers, learning theory, as well as the process of interacting with the various members and relevant organizations within their communities. Thus, the goals of the Head Start Graduate Student Research Grant program can be summarized as follows: 1. Provide direct support for graduate students as a way of encouraging the conduct of research with Head Start populations, thus contributing to the knowledge base about the best approaches for delivering services to diverse, low-income families and their children; 2. Promote mentor-student relationships that support students’ graduate training and professional development as young researchers engaged in policy-relevant, applied research; 3. Emphasize the importance of developing true working research partnerships with Head Start programs and other relevant entities within the community, thereby fostering skills necessary to build a student’s trajectory of successful partnership-building and contributions to the scientific community; and 4. Support the active communication, networking and collaboration among graduate students, their mentors and other prominent researchers in the field, both during their graduate training, as well as into the early stages of their research careers. While the specific topics addressed under these Graduate Student Research Grants are intended to be field-initiated, E:\TEMP\25APN1.SGM 25APN1
