    Description: Under title IV-B, subparts 1 and 2, of the Social 
Security Act (the Act), States, Territories, and Tribes are required to 
submit a Child and Family Services Plan (CFSP). The CFSP lays the 
groundwork for a system of coordinated, integrated, and culturally 
relevant family services for the subsequent five years (45 CFR 
1357.15(a)(1)). The CFSP outlines initiatives and activities the State, 
Tribe or territory will carry out in administering programs and 
services to promote the safety, permanency, and well-being of children 
and families, including, as applicable, those activities conducted 
under the John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (Section 477 
of the Act) and the State grant authorized by the Child Abuse 
Prevention and Treatment Act. By June 30 of each year, States, 
Territories, and Tribes are also required to submit an Annual Progress 
and Services Report (APSR) and a financial report called the CFS-101. 
The APSR is a yearly report that discusses progress made by a State, 
Territory or Tribe in accomplishing the goals and objectives cited in 
its CFSP (45 CFR 1357.16(a)). The APSR contains new and updated 
information about service needs and organizational capacities 
throughout the five-year plan period. The CFS-101 has three parts. Part 
I is an annual budget request for the upcoming fiscal year. Part II 
includes a summary of planned expenditures by program area for the 
upcoming fiscal year, the estimated number of individuals or families 
to be served, and the geographical service area. Part III includes 
actual expenditures by program area, numbers of families and 
individuals served by program area, and the geographic areas served for 
the last complete fiscal year.
    Respondents: States, Territories, and Tribes must complete the 
CFSP, APSR, and CFS-101. Tribes and territories are exempted from the 
monthly caseworker visits reporting requirement of the CFSP/APSR. There
