Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Title: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Two-Parent Study.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is 
proposing an information collection activity as part of the Temporary 
Assistance for Needy Families Two-Parent Study. Through this 
information collection, ACF seeks to gain an in-depth, systematic 
understanding of the characteristics of two-parent families 
participating in or eligible to receive TANF, the variety of services 
two-parent families receive through TANF, how state policies may help 
or hinder participation in TANF among two-parent families, and how the 
beliefs of staff and eligible families help or hinder two-parent 
families' participation in TANF.
    The proposed information collection consists of semi-structured 
interviews with key State and local staff, community-based organization 
representatives, and adult members of two-parent TANF or likely 
eligible families on questions of TANF policies, service delivery, and 
program context, as well as focus groups with adult members of two-
parent TANF or likely eligible families.
    Respondents: State- and local-level TANF administrators and staff, 
representatives from community-based organizations, and adults from 
two-parent families on or likely eligible for TANF.

Annual Burden Estimates

    Information collection will be completed within one year.
