Description: Content changes are being made to the OPR ONLY. The information in the OPR is being collected on a quarterly basis to monitor the performance of grantees and better gauge grantee progress. The standardized format will allow ANA to report results across all its program areas and flag grantees that may need additional training and/or technical assistance to successfully implement their projects. Following are content changes being made within specific sections of the OPR form: OBJECTIVE WORK PLAN UDATE Section: Adding 1st through 4th Quarter (Ql,Q2,Q3,Q4) results for Activities within each Objective. The grantee can continue to add to this form each quarter (rather than on to a new form), reflecting cumulative results throughout the project period rather than just the quarter. FINANCIAL Section: Add 2 Questions: (1) Provide details on any income generated as a result of ANA project activities; (2) Provide details on any changes made to the budget during the reporting period. NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH AND ELDER OPPORTUNITIES Section: Add Question: (1) Request details on any intergenerational activities between grandparents and their grandchildren. Finally, add a new section (last section) to the form: PROJECT SUSTAINABILITY: (1) Request details on the grantee’s intention to continue the project benefits and/or services after the project period has ended. End of Content Changes to the OPR. No changes are being made to the OWP or to the Project Abstract (below). The information collected by the OWP is needed to properly administer and monitor the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) programs within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The OWP assists applicants in describing their projects’ objectives and activities, and also assists independent panel reviewers, ANA staff and the ANA Commissioner during the review and funding decision process. The Project Abstract provides crucial information in a concise format that is utilized by applicants, independent reviewers, ANA staff and the ANA Commissioner.

OMB No.: 0970–0345. Description: Tribes use Form ACF– 196T to report expenditures for the Tribal TANF grant. Authority to collect and report this information is found in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 PRWORA), Public Law 104–193. Tribal entities with approved Tribal plans for implementation of the TANF program are required by Section 412(h) of the Social Security Act to report financial data. Form ACF–196T provides for the collection of data regarding Federal expenditures. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) ability to monitor expenditures. This information is also used to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. Financial management of the program would be seriously compromised if the expenditure data were not collected. Average burden hours per response Per respondent 1 1 Total annual burden hours 0.03 0.50 48 802 45 CFR Part 286 Subpart E requires the strictest controls on funding requirements, which necessitates review of documentation in support of Tribal expenditures for reimbursement. Comments received from previous efforts to implement a similar Tribal TANF report Form ACF–196T were used to guide ACF in the development of the product presented with this submittal. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, Public Law 111–5 has authorized emergency TANF funds to be awarded to States, Tribes, and Territories who meet certain eligibility requirements written in the legislation. TANF Policy Announcement TANF–ACF–PA–2009– O1 provides additional guidance on eligibility requirements. Recipients of ARRA funds are to report spending and performance data to Federal agencies quarterly for posting on the public Web site, ‘‘Recovery.gov’’. Federal agencies are required to collect ARRA expenditures data and the data must be clearly distinguishable from the regular TANF (non-ARRA) funds. Therefore, in order to meet this data collection requirement, the ACF–196T has been modified with the addition of two line items and a column to report ARRA expenditures. The collection and posting of this data is to allow the public to see where their tax dollars are spent. Respondents: All Tribal TANF Agencies.
