OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other LowIncome Populations. This study will provide an opportunity to learn more about the potential of coaching to help clients achieve self-sufficiency and other desired employment-related outcomes. It will take place over five years in up to three employment programs. These programs may be Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) agencies or other public or private employment programs that serve low-income individuals. Selected sites will include a robust coaching component and have the capacity to conduct a rigorous impact evaluation, among other criteria. This study will provide information on whether coaching helps people obtain and retain jobs, advance in their careers, move toward self-sufficiency, and improve their overall well-being. To meet these objectives, this study will include an impact and implementation study. PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The impact study will involve participants being randomly assigned to either a ‘‘program group,’’ who will be paired with a coach, or to a ‘‘control group,’’ who will not be paired with a coach. The effectiveness of the coaching will be determined by differences between members of the program and control groups in outcomes such as obtaining and retaining employment, earnings, measures of self-sufficiency, and measures of self-regulation. The implementation study will document coaching practices, describe lessons learned from implementing coaching, and enhance interpretation of the impact study findings. The proposed information collection activities are: (1) Baseline data collection: Collection of characteristics data on all study participants as they enroll in the study. Data will be entered into the Random Assignment, Participant Tracking Enrollment, and Reporting (RAPTER) system; (2) First follow-up survey: Collection of outcome data for a subset of study participants about 9 months after random assignment; (3) Semi-structured staff interviews: Collection of qualitative data on the design and implementation of the program; (4) Staff survey: Collection of information on staff members’ professional backgrounds, training, coaching practices, and attitudes; (5) Indepth participant interviews: Collection of detailed information about the participants’ backgrounds and experiences with coaching; (6) Staff reports of program service receipt: Collection of data on coaching and other program services received by study E:\FR\FM\26JNN1.SGM 26JNN1

    OMB No.: 0970-0196.
    Description: Section 466(a)(17) of the Social Security Act (the 
Act) requires states to establish procedures for their child support 
agencies to enter into agreements with financial institutions doing 
business in their state for the purpose of securing information leading 
to the enforcement of child support orders. Under 452(m) and 
466(a)(17)(A)(i) of the Act, the Secretary may aid state agencies 
conducting data matches with financial institutions doing business in 
two or more states by establishing a centralized and standardized 
matching program through the Federal Parent Locator Service.
    To further assist states collect child support, the federal Office 
of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) worked with child support agencies 
and financial institutions to develop the Federally Assisted State 
Transmitted (FAST) Levy system.
    FAST Levy is a central, standardized, and secure electronic process 
for child support agencies and financial institutions to exchange 
information about levying financial accounts to collect past-due 
support. OCSE picks up files created by child support agencies that 
contain FAST Levy requests and distributes them to financial 
institutions that use the FAST Levy system. Those financial 
institutions create response files that OCSE picks up and distributes 
to the child support agencies.
    The MSFIDM/FAST-Levy information collection activities are 
authorized by: 42 U.S.C. 652(m), which authorizes OCSE, through the 
Federal Parent Locator Service, to aid state child support agencies and 
financial institutions doing business in two or more states reach 
agreements regarding the receipt from financial institutions, and the 
transfer to the state child support agencies, of information pertaining 
to the location of accounts held by obligors who owe past-due support; 
42 U.S.C. 666(a)(2) and (c)(1)(G)(ii), which require state child 
support agencies in cases in which there is an arrearage to establish 
procedures to secure assets to satisfy any current support obligation 
and the arrearage by attaching and seizing assets of the obligor held 
in financial institutions; 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(17)(A), which requires 
state child support agencies to establish procedures under which the 
state child support agencies shall enter into agreements with financial 
institutions doing business in the State to develop and operate, in 
coordination with financial institutions, and the Federal Parent 
Locator Service (in the case of financial institutions doing business 
in two or more States), a data match system, using automated data 
exchanges to the maximum extent feasible, in which a financial 
institution is required to quarterly provide information pertaining to 
a noncustodial parent owing past-due support who maintains an account 
at the institution and, in response to a notice of lien or levy, 
encumber or surrender, assets held; 42

U.S.C. 652(a)(7), which requires OCSE to provide technical assistance 
to state child support enforcement agencies to help them establish 
effective systems for collecting child and spousal support; and, 45 CFR 
303.7(a)(5), which requires state child support agencies to transmit 
requests for information and provide requested information 
electronically to the greatest extent possible. To facilitate this 
requirement for states, OCSE developed the FAST Levy system that 
supports the electronic exchange of lien and levy information between 
child support agencies and financial institutions.
