OMB No. 0980–0229. Description: The Children’s Bureau of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families in the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services collects national child abuse and neglect statistics through the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS). NCANDS was established in response to the 1988 amendment (Pub. L. 100–294) to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) (42 U.S.C. 5101 et seq.), which called for the creation of a coordinated national data collection and analysis program, both universal and case specific in scope, to examine standardized data on false, unfounded, or unsubstantiated reports. The 1996 CAPTA amendment (42 U.S.C. 5106a(d)) required all States that receive Basic State Grant funds to provide specific data elements, to the extent practicable, to the Federal Government. These data items were incorporated into NCANDS. Since that time, other CAPTA revisions that pertain to child welfare have been included in NCANDS. This application is related to the most recent reauthorization of CAPTA during 2010 (Pub. L. 113–320). The CAPTA provisions included in NCANDS state that each State to which a grant is made under this section shall annually work with the Secretary to provide, to the maximum extent practicable, a report that includes the following: 1. The number of children who were reported to the State during the year as victims of child abuse or neglect. 2. Of the number of children described in paragraph (1), the number with respect to whom such reports were— A. Substantiated; VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:18 Jul 19, 2012 Jkt 226001 B. Unsubstantiated; or C. Determined to be false. 3. Of the number of children described in paragraph (2)— A. The number that did not receive services during the year under the State program funded under this section or an equivalent State program; B. The number that received services during the year under the State program funded under this section or an equivalent State program; and C. The number that were removed from their families during the year by disposition of the case. 4. The number of families that received preventive services, including use of differential response, from the State during the year. 5. The number of deaths in the State during the year resulting from child abuse or neglect. 6. Of the number of children described in paragraph (5), the number of such children who were in foster care. 7. A. The number of child protective service personnel responsible for the— i. Intake of reports filed in the previous year; ii. Screening of such reports; iii. Assessment of such reports; and iv. Investigation of such reports. B. The average caseload for the workers described in subparagraph (A). 8. The agency response time with respect to each such report with respect to initial investigation of reports of child abuse or neglect. 9. The response time with respect to the provision of services to families and children where an allegation of child abuse or neglect has been made. 10. For child protective service personnel responsible for intake, screening, assessment, and investigation of child abuse and neglect reports in the State— A. Information on the education, qualifications, and training requirements established by the State for child protective service professionals, including for entry and advancement in the profession, including advancement to supervisory positions; B. Data of the education, qualifications, and training of such personnel; C. Demographic information of the child protective service personnel; and D. Information on caseload or workload requirements for such personnel, including requirements for average number and maximum number of cases per child protective service worker and supervisor. 11. The number of children reunited with their families or receiving family PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42741 preservation services that, within five years, result in subsequent substantiated reports of child abuse or neglect, including the death of the child. 12. The number of children for whom individuals were appointed by the court to represent the best interests of such children and the average number of out of court contacts between such individuals and children. 13. The annual report containing the summary of activities of the citizen review panels of the State required by subsection (c)(6). 14. The number of children under the care of the State child protection system who are transferred into the custody of the State juvenile justice system. 15. The number of children referred to a child protective services system under subsection (b)(2)(B)(ii). 16. The number of children determined to be eligible for referral, and the number of children referred, under subsection (b)(2)(B)(xxi), to agencies providing early intervention services under part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. 1431 et seq.). The Children’s Bureau proposes continue collecting NCANDS data using two files of the Detailed Case Data Component (DCDC): (1) Child File, the case-level component of NCANDS and (2) Agency File, the aggregate data component. The Children’s Bureau is not proposing to continue collecting NCANDS data via the Summary Data Component (SDC), as States will no longer be using this file to submit data. The Children’s Bureau is seeking reapproval of these instruments with modifications. Modifications are being proposed to meet requirements of the amendments in the CAPTA Reauthorization Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–320) passed on December 20, 2010 and to clarify existing reporting. The Children’s Bureau proposes to modify the Child File as follows: • Field 147, Report Time: The Report Time field will collect the exact time (hour and minute) that a report was received by the hotline or other intake unit. CAPTA requires that each State submits the time from the report of abuse or neglect to the start of the initial child protective services (CPS) agency’s response (42 U.S.C. 5106a(d)(8)). Currently, NCANDS only collects the date a report was received. Adding the time field will improve reporting for the Child and Family Services reviews and the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–352). • Field 148, Investigation Start Time: The Investigation Start Time field will collect the exact time (hour and minute) that the CPS agency’s response was E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1
