the Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG). 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 in-
depth, 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 web-
based performance management system under a separate information 
collection (OMB clearance number 0970-0394).
