The ISIS project will test a range of promising strategies to promote employment, self-sufficiency, and reduce dependence on cash welfare. The ISIS project will evaluate multiple employment-focused strategies that build on previous approaches and are adapted to the current Federal, State, and local policy environment. The major goals of the project include increasing the empirical knowledge about the effectiveness of a variety of programs for low-income families to sustain employment and advance to positions that enable self-sufficiency, as well as producing useful findings for both policymakers and program administrators. This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting baseline data elements. Two data collection instruments will be completed by all participants prior to random assignment, and a third mill be an interview guide to collect information from program staff. The first is a short baseline information form (BIF) that will collect basic identification, demographic, and contact information. The form will include relatively standard items from prior evaluations and national surveys. The second instrument will be a self-administered questionnaire (SAQ), covering information related to the project goals. The third instrument, baseline implementation data collection interviews, will be used to collect information from knowledgeable informants about the service context for each evaluation site using a baseline implementation guide. The purpose of such interviews is to document and assess the service environment in which the evaluation is implemented and the opportunities for control group members to access the same or similar services as the treatment group members. Respondents: Individuals enrolled in ISIS demonstration interventions, control group members, ISIS program operators (BIF and SAQ) and State and local informants (interviews).

The goals of the HPOG evaluation are to establish a performance management reporting process for HPOG, and design an evaluation of HPOG. Both goals require collecting information from HPOG grantees on a regular basis. The information collection proposed is an Internet-based collection of information from HPOG grantees on (1) program participants: Baseline characteristics, program participation and patterns, and participant outputs and outcomes; and (2) program designs and operating characteristics. The performance management system would collect information from grantees on their programs and participants on a biannual basis.

    Title: Implementation, Systems and Outcome Evaluation of the Tribal 
and Low-Income Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG).
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is 
proposing information collection activities as part of the 
Implementation, Systems and Outcome Evaluation of the Health Profession 
Opportunity Grants (HPOG). Through this information collection, ACE 
seeks to develop comprehensive management and performance reports on 
the HPOG initiative and design a feasible and reliable evaluation 
design to produce accurate evidence of the effect of HPOG on 
individuals and health job training programs systems.
    The goals of the HPOG evaluation are to establish a performance 
management reporting process for HPOG, and design an evaluation of 
HPOG. Both goals require collecting information from HPOG grantees on a 
regular basis. The information collection proposed is an Internet-based 
collection of information from HPOG grantees on (1) program 
participants: Baseline characteristics, program participation and 
patterns, and participant outputs and outcomes; and (2) program designs 
and operating characteristics. The performance management system would 
collect information from grantees on their programs and participants on 
a bi-annual basis.
    Respondents: Participant data to be collected by program staff in 
the 32 grantee organizations (higher education institutions, workforce 
investment boards, private training institutions, and tribal entities).
