    OMB No.: 0970-0248.

Description

    The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting a 
three-year extension of the ACF-204 (Annual MOE Report). The report is

meet States and Territories MOE requirements, and it is an important 
source of information about the different ways that States and 
Territories are using their resources to help families attain and 
maintain self-sufficiency. In addition, the report is used to obtain 
State and Territory program characteristics for ACFs annual report to 
Congress, and the report serves as a useful resource to use in

assessing State the Territory MOE expenditures, and in assessing the 
need for legislative changes.
