Promoting Readiness of Minors in SSI (PROMISE) Evaluation--0960-0799

Background

    The Promoting Readiness of Minors in SSI (PROMISE) demonstration 
pursues positive outcomes for children with disabilities who receive 
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and their families by reducing 
dependency on SSI. The Department of Education (ED) awarded six 
cooperative agreements to states to improve the provision and 
coordination of services and support for children with disabilities who 
receive SSI and their families to achieve improved education and 
employment outcomes. ED awarded PROMISE funds to five single-state 
projects, and to one six-state consortium.\1\ With support from ED, the 
Department of Labor (DOL), and the Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS), SSA is evaluating the six PROMISE projects. SSA 
contracted with Mathematica Policy Research to conduct the evaluation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The six-state consortium project goes by the name Achieving 
Success by Promoting Readiness for Education and Employment (ASPIRE) 
rather than by PROMISE.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under PROMISE, targeted outcomes for youth include an enhanced 
sense of self-determination; achievement of secondary and post-
secondary educational credentials; an attainment of early work 
experiences culminating with competitive employment in an integrated 
setting; and long-term reduction in reliance on SSI. Outcomes of 
interest for families include heightened expectations for and support 
of the long-term self-sufficiency of their youth; parent or guardian 
attainment of education and training credentials; and increases in 
earnings and total income. To achieve these outcomes, we expect the 
PROMISE projects to make better use of existing resources by improving 
service coordination among multiple state and local agencies and 
programs.
    ED, SSA, DOL, and HHS intend the PROMISE projects to address key 
limitations in the existing service system for youth with disabilities. 
By intervening early in the lives of these young people, at ages 14-16, 
the projects engage the youth and their families well before critical 
decisions regarding the age 18 redetermination are upon them. We expect 
the required partnerships among the various state and Federal agencies 
that serve youth with disabilities to result in improved integration of 
services and fewer dropped handoffs as youth move from one agency to 
another. By requiring the programs to engage and serve families and 
provide youth with paid work experiences, the initiative is mandating 
the adoption of critical best practices in promoting the independence 
of youth with disabilities.

Project Description

    SSA is requesting clearance for the collection of data needed to 
implement and evaluate PROMISE. The evaluation provides empirical 
evidence on the impact of the intervention for youth and their families 
in several critical areas, including: (1) Improved educational 
attainment; (2) increased employment skills, experience, and earnings; 
and (3) long-term reduction in use of public benefits. We base the 
PROMISE evaluation on a rigorous design that entails the random 
assignment of approximately 2,000 youth in each of the six projects to 
treatment or control groups (12,000 total). The PROMISE projects 
provide enhanced services for youth in the treatment groups; whereas 
youth in the control groups are eligible only for those services 
already available in their communities independent of the 
interventions.
    The evaluation assesses the effect of PROMISE services on 
educational attainment, employment, earnings, and reduced receipt of 
disability payments. The three components of this evaluation include:
     The process analysis, which documents program models, 
assesses the relationships among the partner organizations, documents 
whether the grantees implemented the programs as planned, identifies 
features of the programs that may account for their impacts on youth 
and families, and identifies lessons for future programs with similar 
objectives.
     The impact analysis, which determines whether youth and 
families in the treatment groups receive more services than their 
counterparts in the control groups. It also determines whether 
treatment group members have better results than control group members 
with respect to the targeted outcomes noted above.
     The cost-benefit analysis, which assesses whether the 
benefits of PROMISE, including increases in employment and reductions 
in benefit receipt, are large enough to justify its costs. We conduct 
this assessment from a range of perspectives, including those of the 
participants, state and Federal governments, SSA, and society as a 
whole.
    SSA planned several data collection efforts for the evaluation. 
These include: (1) Follow-up interviews with youth and their parent or 
guardian 18 months and 5 years after enrollment; (2) phone and in-
person interviews with local program administrators, program 
supervisors, and service delivery staff at two points in time over the 
course of the demonstration; (3) two rounds of focus groups with 
participating youth in the treatment group; (4) two rounds of focus 
groups with parents or guardians of participating youth; (5) staff 
activity logs

[[Page 62149]]

which provide data on aspects of service delivery; and (6) collection 
of administrative data.
    At this time, SSA requests clearance for the staff activity logs. 
SSA will request clearance for the 5-year survey interviews in a future 
submission. The respondents are the administrative and direct service 
staff, as well as some subcontractors whose primary roles with their 
organizations involve PROMISE service delivery.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    II. SSA submitted the information collections below to OMB for 
clearance. Your comments regarding the information collections would be 
most useful if OMB and SSA receive them 30 days from the date of this 
publication. To be sure we consider your comments, we must receive them 
no later than November 16, 2015. Individuals can obtain copies of the 
OMB clearance packages by writing to OR.Reports.Clearance@ssa.gov.
    Important Information About Your Appeal, Waiver Rights, and 
Repayment Options--20 CFR 404.502-521--0960-0779. When SSA accidentally 
overpays beneficiaries, the agency informs them of the following 
rights: (1) The right to reconsideration of the overpayment 
determination; (2) the right to request a waiver of recovery and the 
automatic scheduling of a personal conference if SSA cannot approve a 
request for waiver; and (3) the availability of a different rate of 
withholding when SSA proposes the full withholding rate. SSA uses Form 
SSA-3105, Important Information About Your Appeal, Waiver Rights, and 
Repayment Options, to explain these rights to overpaid individuals and 
allow them to notify SSA of their decision(s) regarding these rights. 
The respondents are overpaid claimants requesting a waiver of recovery 
for the overpayment, reconsideration of the fact of the overpayment, or 
a lesser rate of withholding of the overpayment. This is a correction 
notice: SSA published the incorrect burden information for this 
collection at 80 FR 43828, on 7/23/15. We are correcting this error 
here.
