These information collection activities were approved by OMB in October 2011 for a three-year period (OMB clearance number 0970–0395). ACF is requesting a one-year extension of these activities. Through the extension of the information collection, ACF seeks to continue a comprehensive process and outcome evaluation to provide documentation and lessons learned about diverse programmatic approaches to health professions trainings for Tribal populations. The goals of the Tribal HPOG evaluation are to: (1) Provide an indepth, systematic analysis of program structure, implementation, and outcomes of the sites served by the five Tribal HPOG grantees funded in FY 2010, and (2) compare these data within and across grantees to generate hypotheses about the effectiveness of different program approaches for Tribal populations. These goals require collecting information from Tribal HPOG grantees and other program stakeholders on an annual basis. The information collection activities include in-person and telephone interviews and focus groups. A one-year extension of these activities will allow the evaluation to gather data from the grantees through the end of their grant period. Program operations data related to this effort will continue to be collected through a webAnnual number of respondents Instrument based performance management system under a separate information collection (OMB clearance number 0970–0394). This Federal Register Notice provides the opportunity to provide comments to OMB on a proposed information collection activity for the evaluation of Tribal HPOG. All instruments included in this request have been previously approved. The burden represents continuing data collection into this period. Respondents: Grantee and Partner Administrative Staff interview: Administrators of the Tribal HPOG program, workforce development, and TANF agencies; public and private university-based partners; and not-for profit organizations.
