Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Building Strong Families (BSF) Demonstration and Evaluation. The proposed collection will consist of two elements: (1) A telephone survey to be administered to both partners in couples enrolled in the BSF research sample about 36 months after enrollment, and (2) observational assessments of BSF families and their children.

BSF programs provide instruction and support to improve marriage and relationship skills and enhance couples’ understanding of marriage.

Proposed Project

    Title: Building Strong Families (BSF) Demonstration and 
Evaluation--Impact Study Second Follow-up.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data 
collection activity as part of the Building Strong Families (BSF) 
Demonstration and Evaluation. The proposed collection will consist of 
two elements: (1) A telephone survey to be administered to both 
partners in couples enrolled in the BSF research sample about 36 months 
after enrollment, and (2) observational assessments of BSF families and 
their children.
    These data collections are part of the BSF evaluation, which is an 
important opportunity to learn if well-designed interventions can help 
low-income couples develop the knowledge and relationship skills that 
research has shown are associated with healthy marriages. BSF programs 
provide instruction and support to improve marriage and relationship 
skills and enhance couples' understanding of marriage. In addition, BSF 
programs provide links to a variety of other services that could help 
couples sustain a healthy relationship (e.g., employment assistance). 
The BSF evaluation uses an experimental design that randomly assigns 
couples who volunteer to participate in BSF programs to a program or to 
a control group.
     The 36-month data collection effort draws heavily from the 15-
month survey conducted in BSF sites. Materials for the 15-month data 
collection effort were previously submitted to OMB and were approved 
under OMB Control No. 0970-0304.
    Respondents: The respondents for the telephone questionnaire will 
be all couples in the BSF evaluation. The respondents for the 
observational assessments will be a sub-sample of children of the 
couples.
