OMB No.: 0970–0283. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is conducting a demonstration and evaluation called the Community Healthy Marriage Initiative (CHMI). Demonstration programs have been funded through Child Support Enforcement waivers authorized under section 1115 of the Social Security Act to support healthy marriage, improve child well-being and increase the financial security of children. The objective of the evaluation is to: (1) Assess the implementation of community interventions designed to provide marriage education by examining the way the projects operate and by examining child support outcomes among low-income families in the community; and (2) evaluate the community impacts of these interventions on marital stability and satisfaction, child well-being and child Average burden hours per response .75 Estimated annual burden hours 38 support outcomes among low-income families. The purpose of this information collection is to continue to collect implementation data under the protocols previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), OMB Approval No. 0970–0283. Primary data for the implementation evaluation will come from observations, interviews, focus groups and records. One-on-one and small group interviews with project staff and marriage education service providers in the community will provide a detailed understanding of the administration and operation of the demonstrations. Focus group discussions will provide insights into participants’ perspectives on marriage education and their experiences with the CHMI interventions. In addition to the implementation information collected under this request, an impact evaluation will be integrated with the implementation study and will assess the effects of healthy marriage initiatives by comparing family and child well-being outcomes in the CHMI communities with similar outcomes in comparison communities that are well matched to the project sites. Data from the implementation studies will provide the basis for the instrumental variable models of CHMI impacts to help determine direct or indirect exposure to marriage-related services. Baseline data collected under the impact evaluation has been approved by OMB (See OMB Approval No. 0970–0322).

    Title: Evaluation of the Community Healthy Marriage Initiative 
Implementation Study.
    OMB No.: 0970-0283.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is conducting a 
demonstration and evaluation called the Community Healthy Marriage 
Initiative (CHMI).
    Demonstration programs have been funded through Child Support 
Enforcement waivers authorized under section 1115 of the Social 
Security Act to support healthy marriage, improve child well-being and 
increase the financial security of children. The objective of the 
evaluation is to: (1) Assess the implementation of community 
interventions designed to provide marriage education by examining the 
way the projects operate and by examining child support outcomes among 
low-income families in the community; and (2) evaluate the community 
impacts of these interventions on marital stability and satisfaction, 
child well-being and child support outcomes among low-income families.
    The purpose of this information collection is to continue to 
collect implementation data under the protocols previously approved by 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), OMB Approval No. 0970-0283. 
Primary data for the implementation evaluation will come from 
observations, interviews, focus groups and records. One-on-one and 
small group interviews with project staff and marriage education 
service providers in the community will provide a detailed 
understanding of the administration and operation of the 
demonstrations. Focus group discussions will provide insights into 
participants' perspectives on marriage education and their experiences 
with the CHMI interventions.
    In addition to the implementation information collected under this 
request, an impact evaluation will be integrated with the 
implementation study and will assess the effects of healthy marriage 
initiatives by comparing family and child well-being outcomes in the 
CHMI communities with similar outcomes in comparison communities that 
are well matched to the project sites. Data from the implementation 
studies will provide the basis for the instrumental variable models of 
CHMI impacts to help determine direct or indirect exposure to marriage-
related services. Baseline data collected under the impact evaluation 
has been approved by OMB (See OMB Approval No. 0970-0322).
    Respondents: Lead Project Staff, Service Provider Organization 
Staff, Key Community, Civic Stakeholders, and Program Participants.
