Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 63914-63915 [07-5626]

Download as PDF 63914 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 218 / Tuesday, November 13, 2007 / Notices annual intended use plan that describes how the State plans to administer its SSBG funds for the coming year. This report is to be submitted 30 days prior to the start of the fiscal year (June 1 if the State operates on a July–June fiscal year, or September 1 if the State operates on a Federal fiscal year). No specific format is required for the intended use plan. The intended use of SSBG funds, including the types of activities to be supported and the categories and characteristics of individuals to be served, must be provided. States vary greatly in the information they provide and the structure of the report. States are required to submit a revised intended use plan if the planned use of SSBG funds changes during the year. In order to provide a more accurate analysis of the extent to which funds are spent ‘‘in a manner consistent’’ with each of the States’ plan for their use, as required by 42 USC 1397e(a), ACF is requesting that States voluntarily use the format of the post-expenditure report form to provide estimates of the amount of expenditures and the number of recipients by service category, that the State plans to use SSBG funds to support as part of the intended use plan. Many states are already using the format of the post-expenditure report form as part of their pre-expenditure report. Respondents: States.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: C.F.D.A. Number: 93.086. Statutory Authority: This action is authorized under the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–171) which amends Title IV, Section 403(a)(2)(C) of the Social Security Act (42.U.S.C. 603(a)(2)); Section 1110 of the Social Security Act governing Social Services Research and Demonstration activities; Title IV–B, Subpart 2 of the Social Security Act, Promoting Safe and Stable Families; and Section 452(j) of the Social Security Act. Notice is hereby given that a single-source program expansion is being made to Public Strategies, Inc., as the National Healthy Marriage Resource Center (NHMRC), located in Oklahoma City, OK, in the amount of $1,250,000 to conduct a national media campaign on the value of marriage and the skills needed to increase marital stability and health. Public Strategies, Inc. and their collaborative partners were competitively awarded on September 30, 2006 to operate the NHMRC. The goal of the NHMRC is to be the ‘‘first stop shop’’ for marriage education information, an experienced provider of training and technical assistance, and a major catalyst in advancing the healthy marriage field. Since healthy marriage is a nascent field, it is necessary for the NHMRC to promote healthy marriage on a broad, national level in order to achieve these stated goals. Research has repeatedly shown that a healthy marriage brings about good outcomes for individuals, families, and especially, for children. A national media campaign would significantly raise the awareness of the benefits of healthy marriage and the benefits of marriage education. The campaign would disseminate information that explains how marriage education can enhance a couple’s ability to form and sustain a healthy marriage and describe the benefits to children being raised in healthy, married two parent households. Additionally, by promoting healthy marriage and marriage education on a national level, the NHMRC will encourage a national discussion and further the mission of ACF’s Healthy Marriage Initiative to help couples and individuals, who have chosen marriage for themselves, gain greater access to marriage education services, on a voluntary basis, where they can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to form and sustain a healthy marriage. After the appropriate reviews, it has been determined that this single-source expansion qualifies for funding. The period of this funding will extend from September 30, 2007 through September 29, 2011.
