An approval for a generic clearance is being requested because each of the thirteen program offices within ACF has a slightly different need for information about program impact information collection during a disaster.

The Disaster Information Collection Forms addressed in this clearance process provide assessment of ACF programs in disaster response, and recovery.

ACF/OHSEPR works in partnership with the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to report assessments of disaster impacted ACF programs and the status of continuity of services and recovery.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Disaster Information Collection Form.
    OMB No.: 0970-NEW.
    Description: This is a request by the Administration for Children 
and Families (ACF) for a generic clearance for the Disaster Information 
Collection Form. An approval for a generic clearance is being requested 
because each of the thirteen program offices within ACF has a slightly 
different need for information about program impact information 
collection during a disaster.
    ACF oversees more than 60 programs that affect the normal day to 
day operations of families, children, individuals and communities in 
the United States. Many of these programs encourage grantees or state 
administrators to develop emergency preparedness plans, but do not have 
statutory authority to require these plans be in place. ACF facilitates 
the inclusion of emergency preparedness planning and training efforts 
for ACF programs.
    Presidential Policy Directive-8 (PPD-8) provides federal guidance 
and planning procedures under established phases--protection, 
preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. The Disaster 
Information Collection Forms addressed in this clearance process 
provide assessment of ACF programs in disaster response, and recovery.
    ACF/Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response 
(OHSEPR) has a requirement under PPD-8, the National Response 
Framework, and the National Disaster Recovery Framework to report 
disaster impacts to ACF-supported human services programs to the HHS 
Secretary's Operation Center (SOC) and interagency partners. ACF/OHSEPR 
works in partnership with the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and 
Response (ASPR), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to 
report assessments of disaster impacted ACF programs and the status of 
continuity of services and recovery.
    Respondents: State administrators, and/or ACF grantees.

                                             Annual Burden Estimates
 [The burden cap for the Disaster Information Collection Form is estimated based on a single disaster per year.
   The estimate is for approximately 10 state administrators, or grantees to go through all of the applicable
  questions with the Regional and Central Office staff. Some ACF programs have more questions and may have more
                                                  respondents.]

    An estimate of the number of disasters that would warrant data 
collection is difficult to calculate due to the unpredictable nature of 
disasters. For example, in 2012, there were 95 disasters nationwide but 
OHSEPR did not collect data on all of them because they had minimal 
effects on ACF programs.

obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families,

requests should be identified by the title of the information 
collection. Email address: infocollection@acf.hhs.gov.
    OMB Comment: OMB is required to make a decision concerning the 
collection of information between 30 and 60 days after publication of 
this document in the Federal Register. Therefore, a comment is best 
assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of
