VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jun 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 OMB No.: 0970–0397. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Pathways for Advancing Careers (PACE) evaluation. PACE is an evaluation of nine promising career pathways strategies to promote education, employment, and self-sufficiency. The major goal of PACE is to increase the empirical knowledge about the effectiveness of programs for lowincome individuals and families to achieve educational credentials, attain employment, and advance to positions that enable self-sufficiency. PACE is one project within the broader portfolio of research that the ACF Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) is utilizing to assess the success of career pathways programs and models. In addition to PACE, this strategy includes a multi-pronged research and evaluation approach for the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and their results. In order to maximize learning across this portfolio, survey development for the HPOG and PACE baseline and follow up surveys has been coordinated, and the majority of the data elements collected in these surveys are similar. (See OMB Control #0970–0394 for HPOG data collection.)

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE): Third 
Follow-Up Data Collection.
    OMB No.: 0970-0397.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data 
collection activity as part of the Pathways for Advancing Careers 
(PACE) evaluation. PACE is an evaluation of nine promising career 
pathways strategies to promote education, employment, and self-
sufficiency. The major goal of PACE is to increase the empirical 
knowledge about the effectiveness of programs for low-income 
individuals and families to achieve educational credentials, attain 
employment, and advance to positions that enable self-sufficiency.
    PACE is one project within the broader portfolio of research that 
the ACF Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) is utilizing 
to assess the success of career pathways programs and models. In 
addition to PACE, this strategy includes a multi-pronged research and 
evaluation approach for the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) 
Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and 
their results. In order to maximize learning across this portfolio, 
survey development for the HPOG and PACE baseline and follow up surveys 
has been coordinated, and the majority of the data elements collected 
in these surveys are similar. (See OMB Control #0970-0394 for HPOG data 
collection.)
    Three data collection efforts have been approved for PACE: One for 
baseline data collection (approved November 2011); a second for data 
collection activities to document program implementation, data 
collection activities for an initial follow-up survey of participants 
administered approximately 15 months after random assignment, and data 
collection through in-depth interviews for a small sample of study 
participants (approved August 2013); and a third for a second follow-up 
survey of participants administered 36 months after random assignment 
(approved December 2014).
    This Federal Register Notice provides the opportunity to comment on 
a proposed new information collection activity for PACE--a third 
follow-up survey for PACE participants approximately 72 months after 
program enrollment. The purpose of the survey is to follow-up with 
study participants to document their education and training 
experiences; employment experiences including their advancement in 
their career; economic well-being; student debt and repayment status; 
and parenting practices and child outcomes for participants with 
children.
    Previously approved collection activities under 0970-0397 will 
continue under this new request, specifically the 36-Month Follow-Up 
Survey and Follow-Up Survey Contact Information Update Letters.
    Respondents: Individuals enrolled in the PACE study at programs 
selected for long-term follow-up.
    Annual Burden Estimates--New Information Collection [This 
information request is for a three-year period.]

    Note:  The burden estimate increased from the 60-day notice due 
to an expected increase in sample size.
