OMB No.: 0970–0397. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Innovative Strategies for Increasing SelfSufficiency (ISIS) demonstration and evaluation. The ISIS project will test a range of promising career pathways strategies to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency. The major goals of the ISIS project include increasing the empirical knowledge about the effectiveness of a variety of programs for low-income individuals and families to achieve educational credentials, attain employment and advance to positions that enable selfsufficiency, as well as producing useful findings for both policymakers and program administrators. This proposed information collection activity focuses on collecting follow-up data elements approximately fifteen months after program enrollment. Baseline data collection instruments were previously approved under OMB No. 0970–0397. The purpose of this information collection effort is to follow-up with study participants, document the experiences of program participants, examine differences in service receipt and educational experiences between program and control group members, describe the intervention as it was implemented in each site and assess the extent to which it was implemented as intended, and assess the implications for intervention scalability and sustainability. Specifically, this data will be collected using the following instruments: (a) A follow-up survey which will be administered to all study participants approximately 15 months following enrollment in the study; (b) a modification to the Baseline Information Form requesting some basic information about all of the study participant’s children (if applicable); (c) interview guides for the in-person visits to the intervention sites to structure discussions with program leadership/ managers, instructional staff, case managers/advisors, partners and employers; (d) a brief survey for instructional staff; (e) a brief survey for case managers/advisors; (f) a brief study participant check-in call; and (g) indepth interviews with a sample of study participants. Respondents: Individuals enrolled in the ISIS demonstration programs, control group members, ISIS program/partner staff (including program leadership, case managers and instructional staff), and other local informants. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Total number of respondents Instrument Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response 5,645 6,998 1,562 1 1 1 0.05 0.833 1 282 5,829 1,562 94 1943 521 2,974 1 0.083 247 82 #1 Basic Information Form Modification .............................. #2 15 Month Follow-up Survey, no child roster .................. #2 15 Month Follow-up Survey, with child roster ................ #2 15 Month Follow-Up Survey, Additional HPOG Questions ..................................................................................
