All information will be collected electronically. This study will collect data through two mechanisms: (1) Selfadministered online surveys, and (2) the Crush enrollment database. Participants will complete a total of three selfadministered online surveys at baseline, three and six month follow-up. Survey questions will assess behavior, attitudes, social norms about sexual behavior, contraception and clinic utilization, and satisfaction with Crush. The mobile response surveys will be sent to participants via text message which they can complete on a smartphone. The estimated burden per response is 13–20 minutes. Survey and duration of each visit by User ID and IP address. Web analytics are generated for any Web site and are a standard evaluation mechanism for assessing the traffic patterns on Web pages. This technology permits development of an objective and quantifiable measure that tracks and records participants’ exposure to Crush. This study component does not entail any response burden to participants. Findings will be used to inform the development and delivery of effective health communications. OMB approval is requested for one year. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. responses will be matched by each participant’s unique identifying number. Each participant will receive up to two survey reminders starting one week after the initial survey link is sent, for two consecutive weeks. There are minor differences in survey content for the control and intervention groups. Each participant will create a profile in the database upon enrollment. This database will collect initial demographic and contact information, informed consent signatures, and information about the participant’s navigation pattern through Crush. Any information entered directly into Crush interactive features will not be stored in the system. The database only collects web analytics data about page visited ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Average burden per response (in hrs.)

OMB No.: New Collection. Number of responses per respondent 6 6 3 Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data collection activities as part of a project to understand the intersection between Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) programs. The goal of this project is to help ACF better understand how the variety of systems that assist refugees collaborate to promote common goals of selfsufficiency and employment, and how refugees’ experiences might differ depending on the structure of the state (or local) program arrangements. To achieve this goal, this study aims to document what states are doing to help refugees gain self-sufficiency; if and how states are integrating RCA, TANF, and associated services to better meet the needs of refugees; and what data is collected currently, or might be collected in the future, to better understand refugee resettlement services and suggest future areas for inquiry. The proposed data collection activities described in this notice will collect data about state policies and practices; how TANF, RCA, and associated services are provided; the respective roles of the various agencies and organizations in serving participants; how the agencies and organizations integrate services internally and/or collaborate with other organizations; refugee populations served; approaches to addressing the particular barriers refugees face; promising practices and strategies for assisting refugees; gaps in services; local labor market conditions; and experiences of refugees accessing services through these programs.

The survey will collect information about state policies and practices. (2) The four site visit interview guides will collect information about how TANF, RCA, and associated services are provided; the respective roles of the various agencies and organizations in serving participants; how the agencies and organizations integrate services internally and/or collaborate with other organizations; approaches to addressing the particular barriers refugees face; promising practices and strategies for assisting refugees; gaps in services; data maintained by programs serving refugees; and local labor market conditions. (3) The focus group guide will collect information from program participants about the services they received, how they were delivered, their experiences attempting to achieve self—sufficiency within a rapid timeframe, and the challenges they have faced. Respondents: Individuals receiving RCA, TANF, and related services; State Refugee Coordinators/Wilson-Fish Program Coordinators; Managers and staff at local TANF offices; local resettlement agency staff; communitybased organization staff providing services to refugees; staff operating alternative cash assistance programs for refugees such as Public/Private Partnerships(s) and Wilson-Fish programs (if different from the local resettlement agency); and staff from other programs providing employability and social adjustment and cultural orientation services to refugees. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Total number of respondents Instrument Survey of State Refugee Coordinators and Wilson-Fish Program Coordinators .....................................................

Descriptive Study.
    OMB No.: New Collection,
    Description: Since 2006, Congress has authorized dedicated funding 
(currently at the level of $75 million annually) to support programs 
providing healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE). In order 
to better understand the services that federally-funded HMRE programs 
are providing to youth and the populations the programs are reaching, 
The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE), within ACF/HHS, 
is proposing data collection activity as part of the Youth Education 
and Relationship Services (YEARS) descriptive study. The data that ACF 
proposes to collect includes information on funding spent serving 
youth, the number of youth being served, youth demographic 
characteristics, characteristics of the organizations or programs 
serving youth, information on program curricula and contents, and 
program implementation information. This data is to be collected 
through a web-based survey that is to be completed by HMRE grantee 
program staff. This information will be critical to inform future 
efforts to improve HMRE programs serving youth.
    Respondents: Healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) 
grantee program staff.

    Note: To fully address the objectives outlined for this project, 
it was determined that additional information collection beyond what 
was proposed in the 60 day Federal Register notice is necessary. 
Therefore, the proposed semi-structured interviews submitted with 
this request (including the site visit screener and semi structured 
interviews with Program directors/Administrators, Facilitators, and 
Partner organizations/providers) require additional burden beyond 
that originally estimated in the 60 day Federal Register notice.
