Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: ............................................ Overall, the estimated burden hours have decreased by 284 hours from the original submission (the estimated total annual burden hours were 2135.12). This difference is explained in part due to plans for fewer Network member organizations to complete subsequent surveys. Additional data fields have been added to four of the OneNet forms at the request of respondents, and a few questions on survey instruments have been removed or revised. These minor changes did not increase the total annual burden hours. In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c) (2) (A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above.

Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the Plan) for Tribes (Indian Tribes, Tribal consortia and Tribal organizations) is required from each CCDF Lead agency in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as amended (Pub. L. 101–508, Pub. L. 104–193, and 42 U.S.C. 9858). The implementing regulations for the statutorily required Plan are set forth at 45 CFR 98.10 through 98.18. The Plan, submitted on the ACF 118–A, is required biennially, and remains in effect for two years. The Plan provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurance about, the Tribal child care program. The ACF 118–A is currently approved through May 31, 63319 2014, making it available to Tribes needing to submit Plan Amendments through the end of the FY 2013 Plan Period.
