The MCP program provides children of prisoners with caring adult mentors, supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships. Research in other populations has shown that such relationships can lead to reductions in risk behaviors and improvements in academic, behavioral, and psychological outcomes in children and youth. Although the MCP program was developed based on research documenting the efficacy of mentoring as a general intervention strategy, it is not yet known if this particular intervention yields positive outcomes for the children of prisoners population. Little is known about how mentoring relationships work for these youth and how effective mentoring relationships for children of prisoners differ from effective mentoring relationships for other youth. In addition, little is known about children of prisoners in general and thus a survey of MCP program youth has the potential to provide important data about this relatively unstudied population. The evaluation and data collection proposed in this notice are to fulfill the statutory requirement under Section 8, subsection h(l) of the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006, as amended, that the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services evaluate outcomes of the MCP service delivery demonstration project and report to Congress on the findings. The information collected will also be used for accountability monitoring, management improvement, and research. Data collection will ensure that grantees know that mentoring relationships are meeting the established milestones and that mentoring activities are faithful to characteristics established by research as essential to success. Data collected will allow ACF to compare the MCP service delivery demonstration project with the MCP grant program.

    Title: Mentoring Children of Prisoners Service Delivery 
Demonstration Project Data Collection.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Amendments, as 
reauthorized (2006), amended Title IV-B of the Social Security Act (42 
U.S.C. 629-629e) providing funding for a service delivery demonstration 
project for the Mentoring Children of Prisoners (MCP) program. Grantees 
shall identify children of prisoners not being served by the grant 
program, provide families of identified children with a voucher for 
mentoring services and a list of quality mentoring programs, and 
monitor the delivery of mentoring services provided.

The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) of the Administration for 
Children and Families (ACF), United States Department of Health and 
Human Services, administers the MCP program.
    The MCP program provides children of prisoners with caring adult 
mentors, supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships. Research in 
other populations has shown that such relationships can lead to 
reductions in risk behaviors and improvements in academic, behavioral, 
and psychological outcomes in children and youth. Although the MCP 
program was developed based on research documenting the efficacy of 
mentoring as a general intervention strategy, it is not yet known if 
this particular intervention yields positive outcomes for the children 
of prisoners population. Little is known about how mentoring 
relationships work for these youth and how effective mentoring 
relationships for children of prisoners differ from effective mentoring 
relationships for other youth. In addition, little is known about 
children of prisoners in general and thus a survey of MCP program youth 
has the potential to provide important data about this relatively 
unstudied population.
    The evaluation and data collection proposed in this notice are to 
fulfill the statutory requirement under Section 8, subsection h(l) of 
the Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006, as amended, that 
the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services evaluate 
outcomes of the MCP service delivery demonstration project and report 
to Congress on the findings. The information collected will also be 
used for accountability monitoring, management improvement, and 
research.
    Data collection will ensure that grantees know that mentoring 
relationships are meeting the established milestones and that mentoring 
activities are faithful to characteristics established by research as 
essential to success. Data collected will allow ACF to compare the MCP 
service delivery demonstration project with the MCP grant program. Data 
collected will also support grantees as they carry out ongoing 
responsibilities and manage information for internal use.
    Respondents: Public, faith-based and community organizations 
applying to and implementing the MCP service delivery demonstration 
project.
