Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    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.
