OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ Demonstration and Evaluation Project (HtE) seeks to learn what services improve the employment prospects of low-income persons who face serious obstacles to steady work. The project is sponsored by the Office of Planning, Research and E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1 46635 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 161 / Tuesday, August 21, 2007 / Notices Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), both within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The HtE project is a multi-year, multisite evaluation that employs an experimental longitudinal research design to test four strategies aimed at promoting employment among hard-toemploy populations. The four include: (1) Intensive care management and job services program for Rhode Island Medicaid recipients with serious depression; (2) job readiness training, worksite placements, job coaching, job development and other training opportunities for recent parolees in New York City; (3) pre-employment services and transitional employment for longterm participants receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); and (4) two-generational Early Head Start (EHS) services providing enhanced self-sufficiency services for parents, parent skills training, and high-quality child care for children in low-income families in Kansas and Missouri. The purpose of the current document is to request public comment on the 36month participant survey in Philadelphia. The research team plans to collect participant-reported surveys assessing participants’ employment, education and economic outcomes, participation in employment and training services, receipt of benefits and services such as food stamps and mental health services, housing and household information, health and health care coverage, child care, and child outcomes. The follow-up survey at the 36-month follow-up in Philadelphia will be used for the following purposes: To study the extent to which pre-employment services and transitional employment affect employment, earnings, income, and welfare dependence of low-income TANF recipients; to examine the impacts of these services on participants’ health, receipt of benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, and child-care subsidies, and participation in services such as substance abuse treatment and mental health services; and to collect data on a wider range of outcomes measures than is available through welfare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Social Security, and Unemployment Insurance records. The 36-month data collection effort draws heavily from the 15-month survey conducted in this site. Materials for the 15-month data collection effort were previously submitted to OMB and were approved (OMB Control No. 0970-0276). Respondents: TANF recipients without a high school diploma and/or recipients who have received TANF for at least 12 months. The fielded sample of the 36-month data collection effort will be all 1,944 participants in the two program groups and the control group of the HtE project in Philadelphia. The burden estimates below assume an 80 percent response rate of the fielded sample. The annual burden estimates are detailed below, and the substantive content of each component will be detailed in the supporting statement attached to this 30-day notice.

    Title: DHHS/ACF/ASPE/DOL Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ 
Demonstration and Evaluation: Philadelphia 36-Month Data Collection.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ 
Demonstration and Evaluation Project (HtE) seeks to learn what services 
improve the employment prospects of low-income persons who face serious 
obstacles to steady work. The project is sponsored by the Office of 
Planning, Research and

Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families 
(ACF) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and 
Evaluation (ASPE), both within the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS), and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
    The HtE project is a multi-year, multi-site evaluation that employs 
an experimental longitudinal research design to test four strategies 
aimed at promoting employment among hard-to-employ populations. The 
four include: (1) Intensive care management and job services program 
for Rhode Island Medicaid recipients with serious depression; (2) job 
readiness training, worksite placements, job coaching, job development 
and other training opportunities for recent parolees in New York City; 
(3) pre-employment services and transitional employment for long-term 
participants receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); 
and (4) two-generational Early Head Start (EHS) services providing 
enhanced self-sufficiency services for parents, parent skills training, 
and high-quality child care for children in low-income families in 
Kansas and Missouri.
    The purpose of the current document is to request public comment on 
the 36-month participant survey in Philadelphia. The research team 
plans to collect participant-reported surveys assessing participants' 
employment, education and economic outcomes, participation in 
employment and training services, receipt of benefits and services such 
as food stamps and mental health services, housing and household 
information, health and health care coverage, child care, and child 
outcomes.
    The follow-up survey at the 36-month follow-up in Philadelphia will 
be used for the following purposes: To study the extent to which pre-
employment services and transitional employment affect employment, 
earnings, income, and welfare dependence of low-income TANF recipients; 
to examine the impacts of these services on participants' health, 
receipt of benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, and child-care 
subsidies, and participation in services such as substance abuse 
treatment and mental health services; and to collect data on a wider 
range of outcomes measures than is available through welfare, Medicaid, 
Food Stamps, Social Security, and Unemployment Insurance records.
    The 36-month data collection effort draws heavily from the 15-month 
survey conducted in this site. Materials for the 15-month data 
collection effort were previously submitted to OMB and were approved 
(OMB Control No. 0970-0276).
    Respondents: TANF recipients without a high school diploma and/or 
recipients who have received TANF for at least 12 months.
    The fielded sample of the 36-month data collection effort will be 
all 1,944 participants in the two program groups and the control group 
of the HtE project in Philadelphia. The burden estimates below assume 
an 80 percent response rate of the fielded sample.
    The annual burden estimates are detailed below, and the substantive 
content of each component will be detailed in the supporting statement 
attached to this 30-day notice.
