Download as PDF 21553 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 70 / Tuesday, April 12, 2016 / Notices reviewed and results are compiled by CMS in a format intended to provide information, comparisons and trends related to States’ experiences with DUR. The States benefit from the information and may enhance their programs each year based on State reported innovative practices that are compiled by CMS from the DUR annual reports. Form Number: CMS–R–153 (OMB control number: 0938–0659); Frequency: Yearly, quarterly, and occasionally; Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Governments; Number of Respondents: 51; Total Annual Responses: 510; Total Annual Hours: 20,808. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Renee Hilliard at 410–786– 2991.) 2. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Title of Information Collection: Medicaid Statistical Information System (MSIS) and Transformed—Medicaid Statistical Information System (T–MSIS); Use: The data reported in MSIS/T–MSIS are used by federal, state, and local officials, as well as by private researchers and corporations to monitor past and projected future trends in the Medicaid program. These data provide the only national level information available on enrollees, beneficiaries, and expenditures. They also provide the only national level information available on Medicaid utilization. This information is the basis for analyses and for cost savings estimates for the Department’s cost sharing legislative initiatives to Congress. The collected data are also crucial to our actuarial forecasts.

OMB No.: 0970–0163. Description: States and Territories use the Financial Report Form ACF–696 to report Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) expenditures. Authority to collect and report this information is found in section 658G of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as revised. In addition to the Program Reporting Requirements set forth in 45 CFR part 98, subpart H, the regulations at 45 CFR 98.65(g) and 98.67(c)(1) authorize the Secretary to require financial reports as necessary. The form provides specific data regarding claims and provides a mechanism for States to request Child Care grant awards and to certify the availability of State matching funds. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise ACF’s ability to monitor Child Care and Development Fund expenditures. This information is also used to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. ACF has not made substantive revisions to the reporting form itself, but has revised the accompanying instructions to provide more detailed guidance to assist grantees with completing the form.

Findings from this data collection will be used to develop practical, responsive guidance on IPV and TDV screening and surrounding protocols for HMRE programs. Data collection will entail testing eight screening instruments: Six closedended screening instruments (three for IPV, three for TDV), and two openended instruments (one for IPV, one for TDV). It is anticipated that each participant will engage in four rounds of data collection, one round for each IPV or TDV instrument, at least two weeks apart. Data collection is expected to occur from Winter 2016/2017 through Spring 2017.

    OMB No.: New Collection

[[Page 21554]]

    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing a data 
collection as part of the ``Responding to Intimate Violence in 
Relationship programs'' (RIViR) study. This notice addresses testing of 
intimate partner violence (IPV) and teen dating violence (TDV) 
screener/protocols, to be conducted with approximately 1,200 
participants from approximately six Healthy Marriage and Relationship 
Education (HMRE) grantees funded by the Office of Family Assistance 
(OFA).
    There is little consensus on how HMRE programs should address IPV 
or TDV in their programs. To date, no IPV or TDV screening tools have 
been empirically tested among HMRE program participants. The objective 
of the proposed data collection is to test and validate IPV and TDV 
screening instruments among HMRE program participants. Findings from 
this data collection will be used to develop practical, responsive 
guidance on IPV and TDV screening and surrounding protocols for HMRE 
programs.
    Data collection will entail testing eight screening instruments: 
Six closed-ended screening instruments (three for IPV, three for TDV), 
and two open-ended instruments (one for IPV, one for TDV). It is 
anticipated that each participant will engage in four rounds of data 
collection, one round for each IPV or TDV instrument, at least two 
weeks apart. Data collection is expected to occur from Winter 2016/2017 
through Spring 2017.
    Respondents: HMRE grantee program participants: 600 Youth 
(approximately ages 14-18) will participate in the TDV screener testing 
and 600 adults (ages 18 and older) will participate in the IPV screener 
testing.
