OMB No.: 0970–0198. Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the Plan) for Tribes is required from each CCDF Lead Agency in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act, as amended, by Public Law 113–186 and U.S.C. 9858. The Plan provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurances about, the Tribes’ child care program. The FY 2017–2019 CCDF Plan Preprint for Tribal grantees is being published in the Federal Register for a 30-day Public Comment Period to provide an opportunity for the public to submit comments to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The first 60-day comment period on the Tribal Preprint closed on March 19, 2016. The Office of Child Care (OCC) has given thoughtful consideration to those comments received during the 60day Public Comment Period. The Plan has been revised to provide additional guidance and clarification throughout the document to improve the quality of the information requested. Additional revisions were also made to identify those questions related to the CCDBG Act of 2014 that were added for ‘‘informational purposes only’’. A red delta sign has been inserted to specifically identify those questions related to the new law. The CCDBG Act of 2014, signed into law in November of 2014 made significant changes to the CCDF program. However, the law did not explicitly indicate the extent to which many of the new requirements apply to Tribes. Questions related to the CCDBG Act of 2014 will provide ACF with baseline information on Tribal practices and technical assistance needs. ACF extended the current Tribal Plan for one year, which means that Tribes will submit new 3-year Plans for FY 2017–2019 on July 1, 2016, with an effective date of October 1, 2016. This additional time allowed the Office of Child Care to consult with Tribal Leaders and their designated representatives to solicit input on how the new requirements of the CCDBG Act of 2014 might apply to Tribal child care programs. HHS will publish a Final Rule to determine the extent to which the new law applies to Tribes. Pending the issuance of new regulations and guidance, Tribes are subject to the prior law and regulations. Respondents: Tribal CCDF Lead Agencies (257).

OMB No.: 0970—NEW. Description The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) created the ‘‘Grants to States for Access and Visitation’’ program (AV grant program). Funding for the program began in FY 1997 with a capped, annual entitlement of $10 million. The statutory goal of the program is to PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provide funds to states that will enable them to provide services for the purpose of increasing noncustodial parent (NCP) access to and visitation with their children. State governors decide which state entity will be responsible for implementing the AV grant program and the state determines who will be served, what services will be provided, and whether the services will be statewide or in local jurisdictions. The statute specifies certain activities which may be funded, including: voluntary and mandatory mediation, counseling, education, the development of parenting plans, supervised visitation, and the development of guidelines for visitation and alternative custody arrangements. Even though OCSE manages this program, the funding for the AV grant is separate from funding for federal and state administration of the Child Support program. Section 469B(e)(3) of the Social Security Act (Pub. L. 104–193) requires that each state receiving an Access and Visitation (AV) grant award monitor, evaluate and report on such programs in accordance with regulations (45 CFR part 303).

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Child Care Development Fund Plan for Tribes for FFY 2017-
2019 (ACF-118-A).
    OMB No.: 0970-0198.
    Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the 
Plan) for Tribes is required from each CCDF Lead Agency in accordance 
with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) 
Act, as amended, by Public Law 113-186 and U.S.C. 9858. The Plan 
provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurances 
about, the Tribes' child care program.
    The FY 2017-2019 CCDF Plan Preprint for Tribal grantees is being 
published in the Federal Register for a 30-day Public Comment Period to 
provide an opportunity for the public to submit comments to the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB). The first 60-day comment period on the 
Tribal Preprint closed on March 19, 2016. The Office of Child Care 
(OCC) has given thoughtful consideration to those comments received 
during the 60-day Public Comment Period. The Plan has been revised to 
provide additional guidance and clarification throughout the document 
to improve the quality of the information requested. Additional 
revisions were also made to identify those questions related to the 
CCDBG Act of 2014 that were added for ``informational purposes only''. 
A red delta sign has been inserted to specifically identify those 
questions related to the new law. The CCDBG Act of 2014, signed into 
law in November of 2014 made significant changes to the CCDF program. 
However, the law did not explicitly indicate the extent to which many 
of the new requirements apply to Tribes. Questions related to the CCDBG 
Act of 2014 will provide ACF with baseline information on Tribal 
practices and technical assistance needs.
    ACF extended the current Tribal Plan for one year, which means that 
Tribes will submit new 3-year Plans for FY 2017-2019 on July 1, 2016, 
with an effective date of October 1, 2016. This additional time allowed 
the Office of Child Care to consult with Tribal Leaders and their 
designated representatives to solicit input on how the new requirements 
of the CCDBG Act of 2014 might apply to Tribal child care programs. HHS 
will publish a Final Rule to determine the extent to which the new law 
applies to Tribes. Pending the issuance of new regulations and 
guidance, Tribes are subject to the prior law and regulations.
    Respondents: Tribal CCDF Lead Agencies (257).
