OMB No.: 0970–0248. Description: We wish to amend the annual report to include the state report on the TANF EBT requirements. The final rule that will govern the TANF EBT state reports (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program, State Reporting On Policies and Practices to Prevent Use of TANF Funds in Electronic Benefit Transfer Transactions in Specified Locations) has not yet been published, so ACF is unable to have a stand-alone EBT state report form cleared by PRA in time for states to report on fiscal year 2015. Amending the annual report to include the EBT reporting section would enable states to report on this fiscal year and avoid possible penalty. Section 4004 of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 specifies that the Secretary shall reduce the state’s annual TANF grant by 5 percent if the state does not report on its policies and practices each fiscal year. The states have not submitted EBT reports since fiscal year 2014. Respondents: The TANF programs of the states, DC, Guam, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Agency Recordkeeping/Reporting Requirements Under Emergency

Review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)

    Title: Request to use emergency procedures for an emergency 
revision to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Annual 
Report on TANF Programs and State Maintenance-of-Effort Programs.
    OMB No.: 0970-0248.
    Description: We wish to amend the annual report to include the 
state report on the TANF EBT requirements. The final rule that will 
govern the TANF EBT state reports (Temporary Assistance for Needy 
Families (TANF) Program, State Reporting On Policies and Practices to 
Prevent Use of TANF Funds in Electronic Benefit Transfer Transactions 
in Specified Locations) has not yet been published, so ACF is unable to 
have a stand-alone EBT state report form cleared by PRA in time for 
states to report on fiscal year 2015. Amending the annual report to 
include the EBT reporting section would enable states to report on this 
fiscal year and avoid possible penalty. Section 4004 of the Middle 
Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 specifies that the 
Secretary shall reduce the state's annual TANF grant by 5 percent if 
the state does not report on its policies and practices each fiscal 
year. The states have not submitted EBT reports since fiscal year 2014.
    Respondents: The TANF programs of the states, DC, Guam, the 
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
