The purpose of the SECCS Program is to support State and local communities in their efforts to build comprehensive and coordinated early childhood service systems and to increase the leadership and participation of State MCH Title V programs in multi-agency early childhood systems development initiatives. The SECCS funding is offered to States, jurisdictions, or Territory Title V agencies in two stages: Planning and Implementation. This assessment will only focus on Implementation Grantees awarded in 2005 (approximately 20 grantees) and 2006 (approximately 40 grantees).

The results of the assessment will provide MCHB with timely feedback on the achievements of the SECCS Program and identify potential areas for improvement, which will inform program planning and operational decisions. As part of the project, all implementation grantees will be asked to complete a Minimum Data Set (MDS), which will primarily include closedended questions addressing grantees’ progress in achieving the requirements outlined in the implementation grant guidance.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request 
a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the 
HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301)-443-1129.
    The following request has been submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995:

Proposed Project: Assessment of the State Maternal and Child Health 
Comprehensive Systems Grant (SECCS) Program (NEW)

    HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is conducting an 
assessment of MCHB's State Maternal and Child Health Comprehensive 
Systems Grant (SECCS) Program. The purpose of the SECCS Program is to 
support State and local communities in their efforts to build 
comprehensive and coordinated early childhood service systems and to 
increase the leadership and participation of State MCH Title V programs 
in multi-agency early childhood systems development initiatives.
    The SECCS funding is offered to States, jurisdictions, or Territory 
Title V agencies in two stages: Planning and Implementation. This 
assessment will only focus on Implementation Grantees awarded in 2005 
(approximately 20 grantees) and 2006 (approximately 40 grantees). The 
purpose of the assessment is to determine: (1) Progress of 
implementation grantees in meeting the goals and objectives set forth 
in their plans developed during the planning phase and in building 
program infrastructure and capacity to improve early childhood services 
in their states/jurisdictions/territories; (2) programmatic, policy, 
and systemic barriers and facilitators that affect program 
implementation; and (3) quality and effectiveness of the technical 
assistance (TA) provided to the grantees. The results of the assessment 
will provide MCHB with timely feedback on the achievements of the SECCS 
Program and identify potential areas for improvement, which will inform 
program planning and operational decisions.
    As part of the project, all implementation grantees will be asked 
to complete a Minimum Data Set (MDS), which will primarily include 
closed-ended questions addressing grantees' progress in achieving the 
requirements outlined in the implementation grant guidance. The MDS 
will primarily capture quantitative data on implementation grantees' 
progress in increasing the State MCH Program's role and leadership in 
multi-agency early childhood systems development initiatives and 
building partnerships

and system capacity to improve early childhood services in their 
States.
    This information will supplement and enhance the MCHB's current 
data collection efforts by providing a quantifiable, standardized, 
systematic mechanism for collecting information across the funded 
implementation grantees. For the 2005 cohort of implementation 
grantees, the MDS will be administered once in 2006 to gather baseline 
data, and again in the second year of implementation (2007) to gather 
follow-up data on progress made. For the 2006 cohort of grantees, the 
MDS will be administered once in 2007.
    Respondents: The SECCS implementation grantees (Title V agencies) 
funded in 2005 and 2006 will be the primary respondents of the 
instrument. Approximately 60 implementation grantees will respond to 
the MDS. The estimated response burden is as follows:
