Administration for Children and Families Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request Proposed Projects Title: AFI Financial Education Practices and Cost Study. OMB No.: New collection. Description: The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the Administration for Children and Families is conducting a descriptive study of Financial Education Practices among Assets for Independence (AFI) grantees to increase its knowledge about current practices in financial education for AFI participants and the costs involved to provide the financial education. The Assets for Independence program is a national demonstration through which OCS awards grants to community-based nonprofit organizations, and State, local, and tribal government agencies nationwide. The AFI program is authorized in Section 402 of the Community Opportunities, Accountability, and Training and Educational Services Act of 1998 (Title IV of Pub. L. 105–285). PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9787 Grantees implement five year projects that empower low-income families and individuals to save earned income and purchase an economic asset as a means for becoming economically selfsufficient. Grantees provide eligible low-income individuals and families access to matched savings accounts, known as individual development accounts (IDAs). In addition, grantees provide asset-building services to program participants, such as financial literacy education, and specialized asset-specific training regarding asset purchase and ownership. This data collection effort will provide OCS with a better understanding of the future needs of AFI grantees in financial education and help OCS to build strategies to strengthen the quality of the financial education provided to AFI participants. The data collection will be collected once through two instruments: The Survey of Financial Education Practices of AFI Grantees and the AFI Financial Education Cost Data Form. The Survey of Financial Education Practices of AFI Grantees will be a Webbased survey consisting mainly of multiple choice questions. All current AFI grantees (approximately 300 grantees) will be asked to complete the survey. The AFI Financial Education Cost Data Form is a supplement to the grantee practices survey. A smaller sample of grantees (approximately 35 grantees) representing a variety of organizational types will be randomly selected to complete this supplemental survey on the costs of providing financial education. The Cost Data Form will be sent to grantees to complete and technical assistance will be provided to grantees to help them complete the form. Specific areas to be covered in this study include: Topics covered by financial education; formats used in delivering financial education; assessment tools that are used to determine participant needs and effectiveness of training efforts; challenges encountered in providing financial education; training materials used; costs and sources of funding for training; strategies for tracking participant progress in developing financial skills; and participant outcomes related to financial education.

    Title: AFI Financial Education Practices and Cost Study.
    OMB No.: New collection.
    Description: The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the 
Administration for Children and Families is conducting a descriptive 
study of Financial Education Practices among Assets for Independence 
(AFI) grantees to increase its knowledge about current practices in 
financial education for AFI participants and the costs involved to 
provide the financial education.
    The Assets for Independence program is a national demonstration 
through which OCS awards grants to community-based nonprofit 
organizations, and State, local, and tribal government agencies 
nationwide. The AFI program is authorized in Section 402 of the 
Community Opportunities, Accountability, and Training and Educational 
Services Act of 1998 (Title IV of Pub. L. 105-285). Grantees implement 
five year projects that empower low-income families and individuals to 
save earned income and purchase an economic asset as a means for 
becoming economically self-sufficient. Grantees provide eligible low-
income individuals and families access to matched savings accounts, 
known as individual development accounts (IDAs). In addition, grantees 
provide asset-building services to program participants, such as 
financial literacy education, and specialized asset-specific training 
regarding asset purchase and ownership.
    This data collection effort will provide OCS with a better 
understanding of the future needs of AFI grantees in financial 
education and help OCS to build strategies to strengthen the quality of 
the financial education provided to AFI participants. The data 
collection will be collected once through two instruments: The Survey 
of Financial Education Practices of AFI Grantees and the AFI Financial 
Education Cost Data Form.
    The Survey of Financial Education Practices of AFI Grantees will be 
a Web-based survey consisting mainly of multiple choice questions. All 
current AFI grantees (approximately 300 grantees) will be asked to 
complete the survey. The AFI Financial Education Cost Data Form is a

organizational types will be randomly selected to complete this 
supplemental survey on the costs of providing financial education. The 
Cost Data Form will be sent to grantees to complete and technical 
assistance will be provided to grantees to help them complete the form.
    Specific areas to be covered in this study include: Topics covered 
by financial education; formats used in delivering financial education;

effectiveness of training efforts; challenges encountered in providing
