The TLGP is designed to strengthen confidence and encourage liquidity in the banking system in order to ease lending to creditworthy businesses and consumers. The reporting, recordkeeping and disclosure requirements apply to eligible entities participating in either the Debt Guarantee Component of the program or the Deposit Guarantee Component or both. The information obtained allows the FDIC to monitor its exposure under the TLGP and determine assessments for entities participating in the program. The required disclosures ensure that depositors, debt holders, and the general public are on notice as to which entities are participating in the program, the extent to which deposits in noninterestbearing transaction accounts are FDICinsured, and whether newly-issued, senior, unsecured debt is guaranteed by the FDIC. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodologies and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

OMB No.: New. Description: On February 17, 2009, the President signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), which establishes the Emergency Contingency Fund for State TANF Programs (Emergency Fund) as section 403(c) of the Social Security Act (the Act). This legislation provides up to $5 billion to help States, Territories, and Tribes in fiscal year (FY) 2009 and FY 2010 that have an increase in assistance caseloads or in certain types of expenditures. The Recovery Act made additional changes to TANF—extending supplemental grants through FY 2010, expanding flexibility in the use of TANF funds carried over from one fiscal year to the next, and adding a hold-harmless provision to the caseload reduction credit for States and Territories serving more TANF families. The Emergency Fund is intended to build upon and renew the principles of work and responsibility that underlie successful welfare reform initiatives. The Emergency Fund provides resources to States, Territories, and Tribes to support work and families during this difficult economic period. We plan to issue a Program Instruction accompanied by the Emergency Fund Request Form (OFA– 100), and instructions for jurisdictions to complete the OFA–100 to apply for emergency funds. Failure to collect this data would compromise ACF’s ability to monitor caseload and expenditure data that must increase in order for jurisdictions to receive awards under the Emergency Fund. Documentation maintenance on financial reporting for the Emergency Fund is governed by 45 CFR 92.20 and 45 CFR 92.42. Respondents: State, Territory, and Tribal agencies administering the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program that are applying for the Emergency Fund.

    Title: Community-Based Abstinence Education Performance Progress 
Report.
    OMB No.: 0970-0272.
    Description: The discretionary funding Community-Based Abstinence 
Education Program (CBAE) is authorized by Title XI, Section 1110, of 
the Social Security Act (using the definitions contained in Title V, 
Section 510(b)(2) of the Social Security Act).

Program-Specific Performance Measure

    The CBAE program developed a program-specific performance measure 
in response to the PART review (a process by which the Office of 
Management and Budget analyzes and rates a Federal program's procedures 
and strategies for evaluating its effectiveness), for which the program 
received a rating of Adequate. In an effort to gather program-specific 
data on rates of abstinence pre- and post-program participation, ACF 
and the Office of Management and Budget determined that a program-
specific performance measure should be developed to assess key outcomes 
among program participants. The CBAE office convened a panel of 
abstinence education experts to gather input on the measure, and, based 
on the input provided, the CBAE office developed the measure. CBAE 
grantees will be required to ask twelve questions of the youth served 
in a pre- and post-survey, as well as a representative sample of the 
youth served in a follow-up survey.
    The questions were carefully constructed by experienced evaluators 
to measure initiation and discontinuation of sexual intercourse as well 
as two key predictors of initiation: Sexual values and behavioral 
intentions.
    The program office will collect and compile data to establish 
baselines and ambitious targets for the program-specific performance 
measure. The data will be aggregated and results will be shared with 
the public as they become available.
    Respondents: Youth Participants.
