OMB No.: 0970–0195. Description: Tribes use the Financial Report Form ACF–696T to report Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) expenditures. Authority to collect and report this information is found in Section 658G of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as revised. In addition to the Program Reporting Requirements set forth in 45 CFR Part 98, Subpart H, the regulations at 45 CFR 98.65(g) and 98.67(c)(1) authorize the Secretary to require financial reports as necessary. Tribal grantees submit the ACF–696T report on an annual basis on behalf of the Tribal Lead Agency administering the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, (Pub. L. 111–5) provides an additional $2 62573 billion for the Child Care and Development Fund to help States, Territories, and Tribes provide child care assistance to low income working families. CCDF Program Instruction (CCDF–ACF–PI–2009–03) provided guidance on ARRA spending requirements. Section 1512 of the ARRA legislation requires recipients to report quarterly spending and performance data on the public Web site, ‘‘Recovery.gov’’. Federal agencies are required to collect ARRA expenditure data and performance data and these data must be clearly distinguishable from the regular CCDF (non-ARRA) funds. To ensure transparency and accountability, the ARRA requires Federal agencies and grantees to track and report separately on expenditures from funds made available by the stimulus bill. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance implementing the ARRA legislation indicates that agencies requiring additional information for oversight should rely on existing authorities and reflect these requirements in their award terms and conditions as necessary, following existing procedures. Therefore, to capture ARRA expenditures, the ACF– 696T has been modified (by the addition of two columns) for reporting ARRA data. In addition, a new data element will ask Tribes to estimate the number of child service months funded with ARRA dollars. The collection will not duplicate other information.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Child Care and Development Fund Annual Financial Report 
(ACF-696T) for Tribes.
    OMB No.: 0970-0195.
    Description: Tribes use the Financial Report Form ACF-696T to 
report Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) expenditures. Authority 
to collect and report this information is found in Section 658G of the 
Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as revised. In 
addition to the Program Reporting Requirements set forth in 45 CFR Part 
98, Subpart H, the regulations at 45 CFR 98.65(g) and 98.67(c)(1) 
authorize the Secretary to require financial reports as necessary.
    Tribal grantees submit the ACF-696T report on an annual basis on 
behalf of the Tribal Lead Agency administering the Child Care and 
Development Fund (CCDF).
    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, (Pub. L. 
111-5) provides an additional $2 billion for the Child Care and 
Development Fund to help States, Territories, and Tribes provide child 
care assistance to low income working families. CCDF Program 
Instruction (CCDF-ACF-PI-2009-03) provided guidance on ARRA spending 
requirements.
    Section 1512 of the ARRA legislation requires recipients to report 
quarterly spending and performance data on the public Web site, 
``Recovery.gov''. Federal agencies are required to collect ARRA 
expenditure data and performance data and these data must be clearly 
distinguishable from the regular CCDF (non-ARRA) funds. To ensure 
transparency and accountability, the ARRA requires Federal agencies and 
grantees to track and report separately on expenditures from funds made 
available by the stimulus bill. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
guidance implementing the ARRA legislation indicates that agencies 
requiring additional information for oversight should rely on existing 
authorities and reflect these requirements in their award terms and 
conditions as necessary, following existing procedures. Therefore, to 
capture ARRA expenditures, the ACF-696T has been modified (by the 
addition of two columns) for reporting ARRA data. In addition, a new 
data element will ask Tribes to estimate the number of child service 
months funded with ARRA dollars. The collection will not duplicate 
other information.
    Respondents: Tribes and Tribal Organizations that are CCDF 
grantees.
