OMB No.: 0970–0205. Description: Historically, State agencies have administered programs under title IV–E of the Social Security Act for the Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Programs. The Administration for Children and Families provides Federal funding at the rate of 50 percent for most of the PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 administrative costs of these programs and at other rates for other specific categories of costs as detailed in Federal statute and regulations. The enactment of Public Law 110– 351, the ‘‘Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008’’ introduced two major changes to the title IV–E programs: (1) The inception of the Guardianship Assistance Program for all grantees, effective October 1, 2008 and, (2) the availability of these programs to Tribes and Tribal Organizations, effective October 1, 2009. We anticipate that this form will be revised and redesigned to be applicable to both State and Tribal grantees. This form is submitted quarterly by each State or Tribe to estimate its funding needs for the upcoming fiscal quarter and to report expenditures for the fiscal quarter just ended. The information collected in this report is used by this agency to calculate quarterly Federal grant awards and to enable oversight of the financial management of the programs. Respondents: State agencies (including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) and Tribal agencies (starting in FY 2010) administering the Foster Care, Adoption Assistance and Guardianship Assistance programs under Title IV–E of the Social Security Act.
