Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Proposed Projects:
    Title: Child Care and Development Fund Financial Report (ACF 696) 
for States and Territories
    OMB No.: 0970-0163
    Description: States and Territories use the Financial Report Form 
ACF-696 to report Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) expenditures. 
Authority to collect and report this information is found in section 
658G of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as 
revised. In addition to the Program Reporting Requirements set forth in 
45 CFR part 98, subpart H, the regulations at 45 CFR 98.65(g) and 
98.67(c)(1) authorize the Secretary to require financial reports as 
necessary.
    The form provides specific data regarding claims and provides a 
mechanism for States to request Child Care grant awards and to certify 
the availability of State matching funds. Failure to collect this data 
would seriously compromise ACF's ability to monitor Child Care and 
Development Fund expenditures. This information is also used to 
estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to 
Congress.
    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, (Pub. L.
