SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 2014 Evaluation of the Summer Electronic Benefits for Children Household-Based Demonstrations on Food Insecurity Form Number: None. OMB Number: 0584–0559. Expiration Date: 03/31/2014. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–80), Section 749(g), directed that the Secretary of Agriculture shall carry out demonstration projects to develop and test methods of providing access to food for children in urban and rural areas during the summer months when schools are not in regular session to reduce or eliminate the food insecurity and hunger of children; and to improve the nutritional status of children. The Summer Electronic Benefits for Children Household-Based Demonstrations on Food Insecurity carries out the demonstration projects Congress directed USDA to perform in this section. In addition, the Act directed the Secretary of Agriculture to provide for an independent evaluation of the demonstration projects using rigorous methodologies. The Evaluation of the Summer Electronic Benefits for Children Household-Based Demonstrations on Food Insecurity carries out the provisions of the Act. The evaluation of these projects is intended to provide policymakers with clear, rigorous and timely findings to make decisions about potential changes to Federal summer feeding programs during the next Child Nutrition reauthorization cycle. In 2011 through 2013, the SEBTC evaluations primarily examined how the provision of summer food benefits to the households of children certified for free or reducedprice school meals impacted the prevalence of very low food security among children as well as their nutritional status. 68811 The revised evaluation will gather data from up to 50 demonstration areas in the summer of 2014. Each demonstration site will consist of school districts that have high proportions of children who qualify for free and reduce-price school lunches and be located in rural areas. Households selected for participation will receive either a $60 or $30 benefit per child per month. Affected Public: School Food Authority Directors in participating Districts. Estimated Number of Respondents: The total estimated number of respondents in 2014 is 50. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: Each respondent will provide data on the number of children offered a benefit and the number of children who consented to receive the benefit; they may also be asked to transfer an electronic benefit redemption data file to the research team; and they will participate in a onehour qualitative interview about their experiences with the demonstration. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 50. Estimated Time per Response: The estimated average response time is 3 hours. We expect no non-respondents because providing the data is a requirement of participation. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents and Non-Respondents: The total estimated response time is 150 hours. See the table below.
