OMB No.: New Collection. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is conducting a demonstration and evaluation called the Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM) project. SHM is a test of marriage education demonstration programs in eight separate locations that will aim to enroll up to 1,000 couples per location, up to 500 couples participating in SHM programs and 500 control group couples. SHM is designed to inform program operators and policymakers of the most effective ways to help low-income married couples strengthen and maintain healthy marriages. In particular, the project will measure the effectiveness of marriage education programs by randomly assigning eligible volunteer couples to SHM program groups and control groups. This data collection request includes three components. First, a survey will be administered to couples 12 months after they are enrolled in the program. The survey is designed to assess the effects of the SHM program on marital status and stability, quality of relationship with spouse, marital expectations and ideals, marital satisfaction, participation in services, parenting outcomes, child outcomes, parental well-being, employment, income, material hardship, and social support characteristics of study participants assigned to both the program and control groups. Second, survey data will be complemented by videotaped observations of couple, coparenting, and parent-child interactions with a subset of intact and separated couples at the 12-month follow-up. Third, qualitative data will be collected through a process and implementation study in each of the eight SHM demonstration programs across the country. These data will complement the information gathered by the SHM baseline data collection (OMB Control No. 0970–0299). The information collected at the 12-month follow-up will allow the research team to examine the effects of SHM services on outcomes of interest and to identify mechanisms that might account for these effects. The process and implementation research will consist of a qualitative component that will help ACF to better understand the results from the impact analysis as well as how to replicate programs that prove to be successful.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM) Demonstration and 
Evaluation Project: 12-month Follow-up and Implementation Research Data 
Collection.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department 
of Health and Human Services, is conducting a demonstration and 
evaluation called the Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM) project. SHM is 
a test of marriage education demonstration programs in eight separate 
locations that will aim to enroll up to 1,000 couples per location, up 
to 500 couples participating in SHM programs and 500 control group 
couples.
    SHM is designed to inform program operators and policymakers of the 
most effective ways to help low-income married couples strengthen and 
maintain healthy marriages. In particular, the project will measure the 
effectiveness of marriage education programs by randomly assigning 
eligible volunteer couples to SHM program groups and control groups.
    This data collection request includes three components. First, a 
survey will be administered to couples 12 months after they are 
enrolled in the program. The survey is designed to assess the effects 
of the SHM program on marital status and stability, quality of 
relationship with spouse, marital expectations and ideals, marital 
satisfaction, participation in services, parenting outcomes, child 
outcomes, parental well-being, employment, income, material hardship, 
and social support characteristics of study participants assigned to 
both the program and control groups. Second, survey data will be 
complemented by videotaped observations of couple, co-parenting, and 
parent-child interactions with a subset of intact and separated couples 
at the 12-month follow-up. Third, qualitative data will be collected 
through a process and implementation study in each of the eight SHM 
demonstration programs across the country.
    These data will complement the information gathered by the SHM 
baseline data collection (OMB Control No. 0970-0299). The information 
collected at the 12-month follow-up will allow the research team to 
examine the effects of SHM services on outcomes of interest and to 
identify mechanisms that might account for these effects. The process 
and implementation research will consist of a qualitative component 
that will help ACF to better understand the results from the impact 
analysis as well as how to replicate programs that prove to be 
successful.
    Respondents: Low-income married couples with children.
