[FR Doc. 2010–28332 Filed 11–10–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4120–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request Proposed Projects Title: Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP), Annual Progress and Services Review (APSR), and Annual Budget Expenses Request and Estimated Expenditures (CFS–101). OMB No.: 0980–0047. Description: Under title IV–B, subparts 1 and 2, of the Social Security Act (the Act), States, Territories, and Tribes are required to submit a Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP lays the groundwork for a system of coordinated, integrated, and culturally relevant family services for the subsequent five years (45 CFR 1357.15(a)(1)). The CFSP outlines initiatives and activities the State, Tribe or territory will carry out in administering programs and services to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families. By June 30 of each year, States, Territories, and Tribes are also required to submit an Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR) and a financial report called the CFS–101. The APSR is a Yearly report that discusses progress made by a State, Territory or Tribe in accomplishing the goals and objectives cited in its CFSP (45 CFR 1357.16(a)). The APSR contains new and updated information about service needs and organizational capacities throughout the five-year plan period. The CFS–101 has three parts. Part I is an annual budget request for the upcoming fiscal year. Part II includes a summary of planned expenditures by program area for the upcoming fiscal year, the estimated number of individuals or families to be served, and the geographical service area. Part III includes actual expenditures by program area, numbers of families and individuals served by program area, and the geographic areas served for the last complete fiscal year. The Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 amended Title IV–B, subparts 1 and 2, adding a number of requirements that affect reporting through the APSR and the CFS–101. Of particular note, the law added a provision requiring States (including Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia) to report data on caseworker visits (section 424(e) of the Act). States must provide annual data on (1) the percentage of children in foster care under the responsibility of the State who were visited on a monthly basis by the caseworker handling the case of the child; and (2) the percentage of the visits that occurred in the residence of the child. In addition, by June 30, 2008, States must set target percentages and establish strategies to meet the goal that; by October 1, 2011; at least 90 percent of the children in foster care are visited by their caseworkers on a monthly basis and that the majority of these visits occur in the residence of the child (section 424(e)(2)(A) of the Act). Respondents: States, Territories, and Tribes must complete the CFSP, APSR, and CFS–101. Tribes and territories are exempted from the monthly caseworker visits reporting requirement of the APSR. There are approximately 180 Tribal entities that are eligible for IV–B funding. There are 52 States (including Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia) that must complete the CFSP, APSR, and CFS–101. There are a total of 232 possible respondents.

Services Review (APSR), and Annual Budget Expenses Request and 
Estimated Expenditures (CFS-101).
    OMB No.: 0980-0047.
    Description: Under title IV-B, subparts 1 and 2, of the Social 
Security Act (the Act), States, Territories, and Tribes are required to 
submit a Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP lays the 
groundwork for a system of coordinated, integrated, and culturally 
relevant family services for the subsequent five years (45 CFR 
1357.15(a)(1)). The CFSP outlines initiatives and activities the State, 
Tribe or territory will carry out in administering programs and 
services to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children 
and families. By June 30 of each year, States, Territories, and Tribes 
are also required to submit an Annual Progress and Services Report 
(APSR) and a financial report called the CFS-101. The APSR is a Yearly 
report that discusses progress made by a State, Territory or Tribe in 
accomplishing the goals and objectives cited in its CFSP (45 CFR 
1357.16(a)). The APSR contains new and updated information about 
service needs and organizational capacities throughout the five-year 
plan period. The CFS-101 has three parts. Part I is an annual budget 
request for the upcoming fiscal year. Part II includes a summary of

estimated number of individuals or families to be served, and the 
geographical service area. Part III includes actual expenditures by 
program area, numbers of families and individuals served by program 
area, and the geographic areas served for the last complete fiscal 
year.
    The Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006 amended Title 
IV-B, subparts 1 and 2, adding a number of requirements that affect 
reporting through the APSR and the CFS-101. Of particular note, the law 
added a provision requiring States (including Puerto Rico and the 
District of Columbia) to report data on caseworker visits (section

State who were visited on a monthly basis by the caseworker handling 
the case of the child; and (2) the percentage of the visits that 
occurred in the residence of the child. In addition, by June 30, 2008, 
States must set target percentages and establish strategies to meet the 
goal that; by October 1, 2011; at least 90 percent of the children in 
foster care are visited by their caseworkers on a monthly basis and 
that the majority of these visits occur in the residence of the child 
(section 424(e)(2)(A) of the Act).
    Respondents: States, Territories, and Tribes must complete the 
CFSP, APSR, and CFS-101. Tribes and territories are exempted from the 
monthly caseworker visits reporting requirement of the APSR. There are 
approximately 180 Tribal entities that are eligible for IV-B funding.
