OMB No.: 0970–0304. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S.Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), anticipates continuing data collection for the 15-month followup surveys of the Building Strong Families (BSF) Demonstration and Evaluation. Data collection will continue for an additional 6 months beyond the current date of expiration (July 31, 2009). This data collection is a 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. The BSF evaluation uses an experimental design that randomly assigns couples who volunteer to participate in BSF programs to a program or control group. Materials for the original 15-month data collection effort, previously submitted to OMB, covered impact and implementation data collections. Data collection for the impact study is complete. ACF anticipates collecting data for an additional 6 months in order to complete data collection for the entire sample of participants. Respondents: Couples enrolled in the BSF evaluation, including program and control groups.
