OMB No.: 0970–0157. Description: 42 U.S.C. 612 (Section 412 of the Social Security Act) requires each Indian Tribe that elects to administer and operate a TANF program to submit a TANF Tribal Plan. The TANF Tribal Plan is a mandatory statement submitted to the Secretary by the Indian Tribe, which consists of an outline of how the Indian Tribe’s TANF program will be administered and operated. It is used by the Secretary to determine whether the plan is approvable and to determine that the Indian Tribe is eligible to receive a TANF assistance grant. It is also made available to the public. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing to revise the guidance by adding a certification page and is requesting additional details regarding economic development. ACF expects the additional information to add an estimated eight burden hours to each Indian Tribe’s submission. This is reflected in the annual burden estimates shown below. Respondents: Indian Tribes applying to operate a TANF program.

OMB NO.: 0970–0181. Description: Each State agency administering the Child Support Enforcement Program under Title IV–D of the Social Security Act is required to provide information to the Office of Child Support Enforcement concerning its administrative expenditures and its receipt and disposition of child support payments from noncustodial parents. These quarterly reporting forms enable each State to provide that information, which is used to compute both the quarterly grants awarded to each State and the annual incentive payments earned by each State. This information is also included in a published annual statistical and financial report, available to the general public. The Administration for Children and Families received several comments concerning these reporting forms in response to an earlier Federal Register notice (71 FR 70406, December 4, 2006). Many of these comments concerned amendments made to the statute governing this program by the ‘‘Deficit Reduction Act of 2005’’ (Pub. L. 109– 171, February 8, 2006). As a result of these comments, ACF is proposing several revisions to these forms to improve data collection capabilities, add additional reporting requirements in compliance with the amended statute, consolidate or delete existing requirements to eliminate redundancy or unnecessary reporting. Specifically, the revised reporting documents eliminate the need to provide budget projections (previously included as Part 3 of Form OCSE– 396A), eliminate a separate reporting document (OCSE Schedule UDC, previously approved as OMB No. 0970– 0268), with the collected information incorporated into Form OCSE–34A and add several data entry lines to accommodate changes in the statute and regulations.

[[Page 40303]]

Report; OCSE-34A: Child Support Enforcement Program Collection Report.
    OMB NO.: 0970-0181.
    Description: Each State agency administering the Child Support 
Enforcement Program under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act is 
required to provide information to the Office of Child Support 
Enforcement concerning its administrative expenditures and its receipt 
and disposition of child support payments from noncustodial parents. 
These quarterly reporting forms enable each State to provide that 
information, which is used to compute both the quarterly grants awarded 
to each State and the annual incentive payments earned by each State. 
This information is also included in a published annual statistical and 
financial report, available to the general public.
    The Administration for Children and Families received several 
comments concerning these reporting forms in response to an earlier 
Federal Register notice (71 FR 70406, December 4, 2006). Many of these 
comments concerned amendments made to the statute governing this 
program by the ``Deficit Reduction Act of 2005'' (Pub. L. 109-171, 
February 8, 2006).
    As a result of these comments, ACF is proposing several revisions 
to these forms to improve data collection capabilities, add additional 
reporting requirements in compliance with the amended statute, 
consolidate or delete existing requirements to eliminate redundancy or 
unnecessary reporting.
    Specifically, the revised reporting documents eliminate the need to 
provide budget projections (previously included as Part 3 of Form OCSE-
396A), eliminate a separate reporting document (OCSE Schedule UDC, 
previously approved as OMB No. 0970-0268), with the collected 
information incorporated into Form OCSE-34A and add several data entry 
lines to accommodate changes in the statute and regulations.
    Respondents: State agencies administering the Child Support 
Enforcement Program.
