role models. Information from the Mentoring Children of Prisoners
Online Data Collection is necessary for ACF's reporting and planning
under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), and to support
evaluation requirements within GPRA. Information collected will be used
for accountability monitoring, management improvement, and research.
Data collection ensures that ACF knows if grantees of the MCP program
are meeting the established targets (established based on research and
benchmarks) recorded in the grant application as required by the GPRA,
and that mentoring activities are faithful to characteristics
established by research as essential to success. Data collected will
also support grantees as they carry out ongoing responsibilities,
maintain program service, and manage information for internal uses.
    Respondents: Public, faith-based and community organizations
receiving funding to implement the MCP program.
