OMB No.: 0970–0308. Description: The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Amendments of 2001 (Pub. L. 107–133) amended Title IV–B of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 629–629e) to provide funding for nonprofit agencies that recruit, screen, train, and support mentors for children with an incarcerated parent or parents. The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) of the Administration for Children and Families, United States Department of Health and Human Services, administers the Monitoring Children of Prisoners (MCP) program. The MCP program creates lasting, highquality one-to-one mentoring relationships that provide young people with caring adult role models. The quality of these relationships is an important indicator of success in mentoring programs. Previous research has shown an association between highquality mentoring relationships and positive changes in youth behavior associated with positive youth benefits, such as improved school attendance, E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1 20707 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 85 / Tuesday, May 5, 2009 / Notices reductions in risk behavior, and other benefits. The Relationship Quality Instrument consists of 15 rigorously field-tested questions about the relationship, plus several questions that establish context (age, gender, duration of relationship and frequency of contacts, etc.). The answers to the questions help assess how satisfied the youth (mentee) is with the relationship; whether the mentee is happy in the relationship; whether the mentee trusts the mentor; and whether the mentor has helped the mentee to cope with problems. Researchers in the field of mentoring have tested and validated the questions. FYSB requires grantees receiving funding to provide information that can be used to evaluate outcomes for participating children. FYSB will use the information provided by the instrument to assure effective service delivery and program management and to guide the development of national monitoring and technical assistance systems. Finally, FYSB will use data from this collection for reporting program outcomes to Congress in the FY 2006 Performance Report during the budget process and as the basis for outcome evaluation of the program over the long term.

This action involves the establishment of a long-range physical Master Plan for Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML) in Hamilton, Montana to guide future development of the campus. This alternative accounts for potential growth in RML personnel, possible land acquisitions, and consequent construction of new administrative and research-related space over the 20-year planning period.

Selected Alternative The Selected Alternative is intended to be a strategic tool for the efficient allocation of campus resources, the orderly accommodation of future growth, and the creation of an environment, which is both functionally and aesthetically conducive to accomplishing the RML mission. The Selected Alternative will provide a guide for the reasoned and orderly development of the RML campus, one that values and builds on existing resources, corrects current deficiencies and meets changing needs through new construction or renovations. The plan sets forth implementation priorities and a logical sequencing of planned development. The Selected Alternative involves the establishment of a long-range physical Master Plan for RML. This alternative covers a 20-year planning period, with reviews every 5 years to ensure that the plan continues to address planning and development related issues affecting the campus. The alternative addresses the future development of the RML site, including placement of future construction; vehicular and pedestrian circulation on and off-campus; parking within the property boundaries; open E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1

    Title: Mentoring Children of Prisoners Relationship Quality Survey.
    OMB No.: 0970-0308.
    Description: The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Amendments of 
2001 (Pub. L. 107-133) amended Title IV-B of the Social Security Act 
(42 U.S.C. 629-629e) to provide funding for nonprofit agencies that 
recruit, screen, train, and support mentors for children with an 
incarcerated parent or parents. The Family and Youth Services Bureau 
(FYSB) of the Administration for Children and Families, United States 
Department of Health and Human Services, administers the Monitoring 
Children of Prisoners (MCP) program. The MCP program creates lasting, 
high-quality one-to-one mentoring relationships that provide young 
people with caring adult role models. The quality of these 
relationships is an important indicator of success in mentoring 
programs. Previous research has shown an association between high-
quality mentoring relationships and positive changes in youth behavior 
associated with positive youth benefits, such as improved school 
attendance,

reductions in risk behavior, and other benefits.
    The Relationship Quality Instrument consists of 15 rigorously 
field-tested questions about the relationship, plus several questions 
that establish context (age, gender, duration of relationship and 
frequency of contacts, etc.). The answers to the questions help assess 
how satisfied the youth (mentee) is with the relationship; whether the 
mentee is happy in the relationship; whether the mentee trusts the 
mentor; and whether the mentor has helped the mentee to cope with 
problems. Researchers in the field of mentoring have tested and 
validated the questions.
    FYSB requires grantees receiving funding to provide information 
that can be used to evaluate outcomes for participating children. FYSB 
will use the information provided by the instrument to assure effective 
service delivery and program management and to guide the development of 
national monitoring and technical assistance systems. Finally, FYSB 
will use data from this collection for reporting program outcomes to 
Congress in the FY 2006 Performance Report during the budget process
