The Commission has recognized the utility that the ATSC PSIP standard offers for both broadcasters and consumers (or viewers) of digital television (‘‘DTV’’). ATSC PSIP standard A/65C requires broadcasters to provide detailed programming information when transmitting their broadcast signal. This standard enhances consumers’ viewing experience by providing detailed information about digital channels and programs, such as how to find a program’s closed captions, multiple streams and V-chip information. This standard requires broadcasters to populate the Event Information Tables (‘‘EITs’’) (or program guide) with accurate information about each event (or program) and to update the EIT if more accurate information becomes available. The previous ATSC PSIP standard A/65–B did not require broadcasters to provide such detailed programming information but only general information. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary, Office of Secretary.

OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The National Study of the Title IV–E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstrations is sponsored by the Children’s Bureau, Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and involves the conduct of a cross-site study of jurisdictions (referred to as waiver jurisdictions) approved to operate demonstrations authorized by section 1130 of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act, Public Law 112–34. The demonstrations involve waivers of certain provisions of the foster care program authorized by title IV–E of the Social Security Act. Child welfare agencies in waiver jurisdictions are operating demonstrations to implement a variety of programs and interventions that serve children and families in an effort to improve their safety, permanency, and well-being. Each waiver jurisdiction is required to conduct a third-party evaluation of its demonstration. The National Study will examine the extent to which safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes have improved for children and families; the characteristics of waiver jurisdictions where improvements in outcomes have occurred; expenditure patterns and the types of activities for which waiver jurisdictions have increased funding; and the extent to which waiver jurisdictions have experienced practice and systems-level changes. The National Study uses a mixedmethod approach to examine 25 waiver jurisdictions (including 23 states, the District of Columbia and one tribal government) with Terms and Conditions approved in Federal Fiscal years 2012, 2013, and 2014. Proposed data collection methods are two topicallyfocused telephone surveys: (a) A telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators who are focused on measuring well-being, and (b) a second telephone survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that is focused on understanding practice and systemslevel changes within child welfare service systems. Also proposed is a Web-based survey of waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that will look more broadly at the implementation of waiver demonstrations and corresponding changes in child welfare policy, practice, and financing. Two sampling survey forms are being proposed to collect the necessary contact information for respondents to the Web- based survey and the telephone survey focused on understanding practice and systems-level changes within child welfare service systems. Data collected through these instruments will be used by the Children’s Bureau to gain an understanding of the jurisdictions’ collective experience with implementing their demonstrations. Respondents: The respondents to the Web-Based Survey will be a purposive sample of an estimated 250 waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators drawn from the 25 waiver jurisdictions with waiver demonstration projects (Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Washington DC, West Virginia, Wisconsin). The respondents will be identified by the 25 jurisdiction demonstration project leaders using the Web-Based Survey Sampling Form. The Web-Based Survey Sampling Form and the Web-Based Survey will be administered once during the National Study. The respondents to the Measuring Well-Being telephone survey will be a census sample of the 23 evaluators identified from the 23 waiver jurisdictions who are involved with the assessment of child and family wellbeing in their waiver jurisdictions. The Measuring Well-Being telephone survey will be administered once during the National Study. The respondents to the Practice and Systems-Level Change telephone survey will be a purposive sample of 60 respondents identified from 14 waiver jurisdictions who are knowledgeable about practice, policy, and organizational changes in their respective waiver jurisdictions. The respondents will be identified by the 14 jurisdiction demonstration project leaders using the Practice- and SystemsLevel Change Survey Sampling Form. The Practice- and Systems-Level Change Survey Sampling Form and the Practice and Systems-Level Change telephone survey will be administered once during the National Study. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Number of respondents Instrument Web-Based Survey Sampling Form ................................................................

    Description: The National Study of the Title IV-E Child Welfare 
Waiver Demonstrations is sponsored by the Children's Bureau, 
Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services and involves the conduct of a cross-site 
study of jurisdictions (referred to as waiver jurisdictions) approved 
to operate demonstrations authorized by section 1130 of the Social 
Security Act, as amended by the Child and Family Services Improvement 
and Innovation Act, Public Law 112-34. The demonstrations involve 
waivers of certain provisions of the foster care program authorized by 
title IV-E of the Social Security Act. Child welfare agencies in waiver 
jurisdictions are operating demonstrations to implement a variety of 
programs and interventions that serve children and families in an 
effort to improve their safety, permanency, and well-being. Each waiver 
jurisdiction is required to conduct a third-party evaluation of its 
demonstration. The National Study will examine the extent to which 
safety, permanency, and well-being outcomes have improved for children 
and families; the characteristics of waiver jurisdictions where 
improvements in outcomes have occurred; expenditure patterns and the 
types of activities for which waiver jurisdictions have increased 
funding; and the extent to which waiver jurisdictions have experienced

waiver jurisdiction representatives and evaluators who are focused on 
measuring well-being, and (b) a second telephone survey of waiver 
jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that is focused on 
understanding practice and systems-level changes within child welfare 
service systems. Also proposed is a Web-based survey of waiver 
jurisdiction representatives and evaluators that will look more broadly
