Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

Proposed Projects

    Title: Disaster Information Collection Plans.
    OMB No.: NEW.
    Description: This request is for approval of a plan for conducting 
more than one information collection that is very similar, voluntary, 
low-burden and uncontroversial. The Information collections under this 
generic clearance will be activated during a disaster. These forms will 
be used after a disaster to develop a technical assistance plan for 
affected ACF programs.
    Presidential Policy Directive-8 (PPD-8), which was signed into law 
in 2011, provides federal guidance and planning procedures under 
established phases--protection, preparedness, response, recovery, and 
mitigation. The data collection addresses response, and recovery for 
ACF programs with a statutory preparedness planning requirement and 
other programs without that requirement.
    ACF/Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response 
(OHSEPR) has a requirement under PPD-8, the National Response 
Framework, and the National Disaster Recovery Framework to report 
impacts of disasters to ACF-supported human services programs to the 
HHS Secretary's Operation Center (SOC). ACF/OHSEPR works in conjunction 
with the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and 
the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to ensure that impacted 
ACF programs are returned to their normal or close to normal 
operations.
    The primary purpose of the information collection pertains to ACF's 
initiative to provide real time updates during the response and 
recovery phases of a disaster; the information will be used to respond 
to inquiries about human services response and recovery efforts, 
specifically for individuals, children, and families that need support 
from ACF programs. Further, the information collection will be used to 
support ACF/OHSEPR's goal to quickly identify critical gaps, resources, 
needs, and services to support State, local and non-profit capacity for 
disaster case management and to augment and build capacity where none 
exists.
    Respondents: Varies, depending on programmatic impact (could be 
state administrators, or grantees).

Annual Burden Estimates

    The estimate is based on a single disaster per year. The estimate 
is for one state administrator to go through all the applicable 
questions with the Regional and Central Office staff, if applicable.
