Improvement Program

    The Court Improvement Program (CIP) is a mandatory formula grant 
funded under section 438 of the Social Security Act, and most recently 
reauthorized under the Child and Family Services Improvement and 
Innovation Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-34). The purpose of the CIP is to 
facilitate the handling of child welfare cases in the courts. All 50 
states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia receive grants under 
the program. The program requires two submissions annually from 
grantees that constitute information collections under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act.
    The purpose of this notice is to request an extension of the Office 
of Management and Budget Control Number 0907-0307 permitting continued 
use of the information collections required by ACF-CB-PI-12-02. The 
burden estimates are provided below. The Administration on Children, 
Youth, and Families anticipates issuing a new Program Instruction for 
federal fiscal year 2017.
    Following the publication of the first Federal Register notice, the 
Children's Bureau engaged in a number of outreach activities to seek 
additional input from grantees and experts in the field on how best to 
reduce grantee burden, ensure that the reporting process was useful to 
grantees, and maximize the ability to evaluate the program overall. 
These efforts have resulted in the decision to require one annual 
submission, as opposed to two submissions.
    The annual submission will include: (1) A self-assessment, and (2) 
a strategic plan. The self-assessment requires the grantees to identify 
the topical work areas of the last year, identify strengths, challenges 
and need for technical assistance. The self-assessment has been 
designed with user/grantee input with the intention of minimizing 
burden and maximizing usefulness of the process and product to the 
grantee. The strategic plan identifies projects and activities and 
intended results for the coming year. The strategic plan was also

five years. The full application will require a five year strategic 
plan, letters of commitment from the highest court of appeal and state
