Act. The highest State court in a State with an approved title IV-E 
plan is eligible to apply for either or both of the new grants. The new 
grants are for the purposes of: (1) Ensuring that the needs of children 
are met in a timely and complete manner through improved case tracking 
and analysis of child welfare cases; and (2) training judges, 
attorneys, and other legal personnel in child welfare cases; and

grants. The annual burden estimates below describe the estimated burden

    This Program Instruction describes the programmatic and fiscal 
provisions and reporting requirements for each of the grants, specifies 
the application submittal and approval procedures for the grants for 
fiscal years 2006 through 2010, and identifies technical resources for 
use by State courts during the course of the grants. The agency uses 
the information received to ensure compliance with the statute and 
provide training and technical assistance to the grantees.
    Respondents: State Courts.
