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. 45 CFR part 286 subpart E requires the strictest controls on funding requirements, which necessities 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– 01 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.

    Title: Tribal TANF Financial Report (ACF-196T).
    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.
    45 CFR part 286 subpart E requires the strictest controls on 
funding requirements, which necessities 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-

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.
