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 (EHS–CCP) 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. NCEHS–CCP will support the effective implementation of new EHS– CCP grants by disseminating information through training and technical assistance (T/TA) and resources and materials. NCEHS–CCP is primarily targeted to T/TA providers working directly with the EHS–CCP grantees (including Office of Head Start PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Number of responses per respondent 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Average burden hours per response 1.5 1.5 1.5 1 1 1 .25 Annual burden hours 27 54 54 12 10 10 23 (OHS) and Office of Child Care (OCC) National Centers, regional training and technical assistance (T/TA) specialists, and implementation planners and fiscal consultants). State and federal agencies (including OHS and OCC federal staff, Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) administrators, Head Start state and national collaboration office directors), as well as EHS–CCP grantees will also find helpful information on partnerships through NCEHS–CCP’s resources. NCEHS–CCP at ZERO TO THREE is proposing to conduct a descriptive study of NCEHS–CCP that will provide information that will document the activities and progress of NCEHS–CCP toward its goals and objectives. Findings from the evaluation will be translated into action steps to inform continuous quality improvement of NCEHS–CCP. The proposed data collection activities for the descriptive study of NCEHS–CCP will include the following components: • Stakeholder survey. Web-based surveys will be conducted in the spring of 2016 and 2018 with key stakeholders (including regional T/TA specialists, CCDF administrators, Head Start state and national collaboration office directors, and implementation planners and fiscal consultants). The stakeholder survey will collect information about the types of support they received from E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
