OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded 275 Early Head Start expansion and Early Head Start-child care partnership grants in 50 states; Washington, DC; Puerto Rico; and the Northern Mariana Islands. These grants will allow new or existing Early Head Start programs to partner with local child care centers and family child care providers to expand highquality early learning opportunities for infants and toddlers from low-income families. ACF is proposing to conduct a descriptive study of the new partnership grantees to document the characteristics and features of partnerships and the activities that aim to improve professional development and quality of services and better meet the needs of families. The study will focus on the grantees that have received funds for Early Head Start-child care partnership grants. The proposed data collection for the descriptive Study of Early Head Start- Child Care Partnerships will include two components: (1) Surveys of 311 partnership grantee and delegate agency directors and a randomly selected sample of 933 child care partners, and (2) in-depth follow-up case studies of 12 purposively selected partnerships. The goal of this work is to collect descriptive information about partnership grantees and delegate agencies, child care partners, and services and quality improvement activities implemented as part of the partnerships and explore how particular partnership models operate. These data will be used to describe the national landscape of partnerships, fill a knowledge gap about partnership models implemented in the field, lay the groundwork for future research, and provide information to inform technical assistance and actions aimed at informing the Early Head Start-child care partnerships grant initiative. Respondents: Partnership grantee and delegate agency directors; child care partner managers/owners; partnership staff who focus on coordinating activities among partners, monitoring compliance with the Head Start Program Performance Standards, and providing technical assistance and training; frontline staff; parents; and other state and local stakeholders (such as staff from child care resource and referral agencies or child care subsidy administrators).

Telephone: 877–922–9262; Email: Carmelia.strickland@acf.hhs.gov. The Administration for Native Americans (ANA), Administration for Children and Families, has awarded an emergency single source grant to the Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST) for programs whose goal is to empower youth ages 8 to 24 to make changes in their communities, to be proud of their heritage, and to inspire them to celebrate life so that they may see that there is a positive future for them. It is intended that this program will have a 24-month project period so that another 12-month budget period will be funded noncompetitively for $400,000 in FY 2016. In testimony before the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on June 24, 2015, Oglala Sioux Tribe President John Yellowbird Steele’s testimony stated that 11 young people on the Pine Ridge Reservation have been lost to suicide since December. In addition, at least another 176 of the youth have attempted suicide in that period, according to the Indian Health Service, and 229 more were treated for suicidal ideation. The awarded project is designed to increase positive youth empowerment activities in all nine districts on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation through the development of Student Youth Councils, peer to peer mentoring, and Lakota cultural awareness activities. The award was made under ANA’s program for Social and Economic Development Strategies (SEDS). The OST has been designated as a Federal government Promise Zone, because of the severe financial and economic status in the area in which they live. The Pine Ridge Reservation is also located in Shannon County, which is often referred to as the poorest county in the United States. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Authority: This program is authorized under § 803(a) of the Native American Programs Act of 1974 (NAPA), 42 U.S.C. 2991b.

    Title: Study of Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in 
the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded 275 Early 
Head Start expansion and Early Head Start-child care partnership grants 
in 50 states; Washington, DC; Puerto Rico; and the Northern Mariana 
Islands. These grants will allow new or existing Early Head Start 
programs to partner with local child care centers and family child care 
providers to expand high-quality early learning opportunities for 
infants and toddlers from low-income families.
    ACF is proposing to conduct a descriptive study of the new 
partnership grantees to document the characteristics and features of 
partnerships and the activities that aim to improve professional 
development and quality of services and better meet the needs of 
families. The study will focus on the grantees that have received funds 
for Early Head Start-child care partnership grants.
    The proposed data collection for the descriptive Study of Early 
Head Start-Child Care Partnerships will include two components: (1) 
Surveys of 311 partnership grantee and delegate agency directors and a 
randomly selected sample of 933 child care partners, and (2) in-depth 
follow-up case studies of 12 purposively selected partnerships.
    The goal of this work is to collect descriptive information about 
partnership grantees and delegate agencies, child care partners, and 
services and quality improvement activities implemented as part of the 
partnerships and explore how particular partnership models operate. 
These data will be used to describe the national landscape of 
partnerships, fill a knowledge gap about partnership models implemented 
in the field, lay the groundwork for future research, and provide 
information to inform technical assistance and actions aimed at 
informing the Early Head Start-child care partnerships grant 
initiative.
    Respondents: Partnership grantee and delegate agency directors; 
child care partner managers/owners; partnership staff who focus on 
coordinating activities among partners, monitoring compliance with the 
Head Start Program Performance Standards, and providing technical 
assistance and training; frontline staff; parents; and other state and 
local stakeholders (such as staff from child care resource and referral 
agencies or child care subsidy administrators).
