OMB No.: 0970–0205. Description: This is a financial report submitted following the end of each fiscal quarter by each State or Tribe with an approved title IV–E plan administering any of three title IV–E entitlement grant programs—Foster Care, Adoption Assistance or Guardianship Assistance. The purpose of this form is to enable each State or Tribe to meet its statutory and regulatory requirement to report program expenditures made in the preceding fiscal quarter and to estimate program expenditures to be made in the upcoming fiscal quarter. This form also allows States and Tribes to report the actual and estimated average monthly number of children assisted in each of the three IV–E entitlement grant programs in the preceding and upcoming fiscal quarters, respectively. The Administration for Children and Families provides Federal funding at the rate of 50 percent for nearly all allowable and legitimate administrative costs of these programs and at other funding rates for other specific categories of costs as detailed in Federal statute and regulations. The information collected in this report is used by this agency to calculate quarterly Federal grant awards and to enable oversight of the financial management of the programs. With this request, we are soliciting public comments on revising the form to incorporate changes to title IV–E programs made in accordance with the September 2014 enactment of Public Law 113–183, the ‘‘Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act.’’ This includes the new requirement at section 473(a)(8)(B) of the Social Security Act to report annually on the methodology used to calculate adoption savings due to the application of differing title IV–E eligibility criteria for children designated as an ‘‘applicable child’’ under section 473(e) along with an accounting of the amount of and the expenditure of any such savings. Respondents: States (including Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia) and Tribes * with approved title IV–E plans. (* An estimated 15 Tribes have or will have approved title IV–E plans within the next 3-year period.)
