OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), is funding a major Project of National Significance called Family Support 360 (FS 360). As with any program of Federal assistance to the States, it is in the public interest to determine the extent to which it has the desired impacts. To do this job with scientific rigor, it will be necessary to collect high quality survey data from the participants in the 17 funded programs across the nation. ADD has already designed the instruments, methodologies, procedures, and analytical techniques for this task. Moreover, they have been pilot tested in 11 States. The tools and techniques were submitted for review, and were approved, by Institutional Review Boards for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) in those States in which IRB approval was necessary. The tools and techniques were repeatedly revised and improved, then applied successfully, and now they are ready to apply across the nation as soon as Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval is received. These instruments and methods are all aimed to answer the elementary scientific outcome questions: Are the participants in the FS 360 programs ‘‘better off’’ because of their participation? If so, how much, in what way(s), and at what public cost? This information will inform public policy regarding the best methods to deliver important supports to families of people with developmental disabilities. Respondents: The respondents are the families of and individuals with developmental disabilities who participate in the ADD Family Supports 360 grant programs at 17 sites across the nation. Ten of the sites are focused on military families, and the other seven are focused on civilian families. Each year will consist of a pre and post assessment.

    Proposed Projects:
    Title: Projects of National Significance--Family Support 360.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration on Developmental Disabilities 
(ADD), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 
Administration for Children and Families (ACF), is funding a major 
Project of National Significance called Family Support 360 (FS 360). As 
with any program of Federal assistance to the States, it is in the 
public interest to determine the extent to which it has the desired 
impacts. To do this job with scientific rigor, it will be necessary to 
collect high quality survey data from the participants in the 17 funded 
programs across the nation.
    ADD has already designed the instruments, methodologies, 
procedures, and analytical techniques for this task. Moreover, they 
have been pilot tested in 11 States. The tools and techniques were 
submitted for review, and were approved, by Institutional Review Boards 
for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) in those States in which IRB 
approval was necessary. The tools and techniques were repeatedly 
revised and improved, then applied successfully, and now they are ready 
to apply across the nation as soon as Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) approval is received.
    These instruments and methods are all aimed to answer the 
elementary scientific outcome questions: Are the participants in the FS 
360 programs ``better off'' because of their participation? If so, how 
much, in what way(s), and at what public cost?
    This information will inform public policy regarding the best 
methods to deliver important supports to families of people with 
developmental disabilities.
    Respondents: The respondents are the families of and individuals 
with developmental disabilities who participate in the ADD Family 
Supports 360 grant programs at 17 sites across the nation. Ten of the 
sites are focused on military families, and the other seven are focused

assessment. For each year we project 680 participating families. Of
