E7–9279 Filed 5–14–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4163–18–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request Proposed Projects Title: Tribal TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) Financial Report, Form ACF–196T. Description: Authority to collect and report this information is found in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), Pub. L. 104–193. Tribal entities with approved Tribal plans for implementation of the TANF program are required by statute to report financial data. Form ACF–196T provides for collection of Federal expenditures data. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) ability to monitor expenditures and maintain financial management of the Tribal TANF program. The financial data collected is also used to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. Federal policy requires the strictest controls on funding requirements, which necessitates review of documentation in support of Tribal expenditures for reimbursement. Comments received from a previous effort to implement a similar Tribal TANF report Form ACR–196T were used to guide ACF in the development of the updated report form presented with this submittal.
