OMB No. 0980–0047. Description: Under title IV–B, subparts 1 and 2, of the Social Security Act, States and Indian Tribes are to submit a five-year Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP) or an Annual Progresss and Services Report (APSR), and an annual budget request and estimated expenditure report (CFS–101). The CFS–101 is submitted annually with the CFSP or the APSR to apply for appropriated funds for the next fiscal year. The CFSP also includes the required State plans under section 106 of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) and section 477 of title IV–E, the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP), of the Social Security Act (the Act). Congress has now appropriated funds for payments to States to implement the Educational and Training Vouchers program (ETV) under section 477(a)(6) and 477(i) of the Act. The ETV program is integrated into the overall purpose and framework of the Chafee program; however, the program has a separate budget authorization and appropriation and has a Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number of 93.599. If a State does not apply for funds for the ETV program for a fiscal year by July 31 of that year, the funds will be reallocatd to other States on the basis of their relative need for funds as requested. The CFSP and the APSR are being renewed and the CFS–101 is being updated to include the request for ETV funds and to either request or release funds for reallocation. Respondents: 275 (50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and approximately 223 possible Tribal entities).
