OMB NO.: 0970–0462. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) to serve TANF and Other Low Income Individuals. ACF has developed a multipronged research and evaluation approach for the HPOG Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and their results. Two rounds of HPOG grants have been awarded—the first in 2010 (HPOG 1.0) and the second in 2015 (HPOG 2.0). There are federal evaluations associated with each round of grants. HPOG grants provide funding to government agencies, community-based organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, and tribalaffiliated organizations to provide education and training services to sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 60 burden hours annually. There is no cost to respondents. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Feb 02, 2018 Jkt 244001 Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals, including tribal members. Under HPOG 2.0, ACF provided grants to five tribal-affiliated organizations and 27 non-tribal entities. OMB previously approved data collection under OMB Control Number 0970–0462 for: the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal Evaluation (Approved August 2015); and the National Evaluation impact study; the National Evaluation descriptive study; and the Tribal Evaluation (All approved June 2017). The proposed data collection activities described in this Federal Register Notice will provide data for the impact and cost benefit studies of the 27 non-tribal grantees participating in the National Evaluation of HPOG 2.0. National Evaluation: The National Evaluation pertains only to the 27 nontribal grantees that received HPOG 2.0 funding. The design for the National Evaluation features an implementation study, a systems change analysis, and cost benefit analysis. In addition, the National Evaluation is using an experimental design to measure and analyze key participant outcomes including completion of education and training, receipt of certificates and/or degrees, earnings, and employment in a healthcare career. The impact evaluation will assess the outcomes for study participants that were offered HPOG 2.0 training, financial assistance, and support services, compared to what their outcomes would have been if they had not been offered HPOG 2.0 services.

The first follow-up survey of both treatment and control group members will be administered approximately 15 months after baseline data collection and random assignment. The survey will collect data about key outcomes of interest, including participants’ tenure and experience in HPOG programming; certifications and educational achievements; job placement; and receipt of benefits. These are the key outcomes of interest for which data are not otherwise available through existing data sources. Previously approved collection activities under 0970–0462 will continue under this new request for the National Evaluation of the non-tribal grantees. In subsequent requests for clearance, we will submit (1) additional data collection instruments to support the descriptive study of the 27 non-tribal grantees participating in the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation, including grantee interview guides and participant interview guides; and (2) the second follow-up survey—the Intermediate Follow-up Survey—for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation impact study. The second follow-up survey is for collecting data from both treatment and control group members at the 27 nontribal grantees, approximately 36 months after baseline data collection and random assignment. This submission will also include data collection necessary for the National Evaluation’s cost benefit analysis. Respondents: For the National Evaluation impact study: HPOG 2.0 study participants at the 27 non-tribal grantees.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: National and Tribal Evaluation of the 2nd Generation of the 
Health Profession Opportunity Grants.
    OMB NO.: 0970-0462.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), 
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data 
collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity 
Grants (HPOG) to serve TANF and Other Low Income Individuals. ACF has 
developed a multi-pronged research and evaluation approach for the HPOG 
Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and 
their results. Two rounds of HPOG grants have been awarded--the first 
in 2010 (HPOG 1.0) and the second in 2015 (HPOG 2.0). There are federal 
evaluations associated with each round of grants. HPOG grants provide 
funding to government agencies, community-based organizations, post-
secondary educational institutions, and tribal-affiliated organizations 
to provide education and training services to Temporary Assistance for 
Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals, 
including tribal members. Under HPOG 2.0, ACF provided grants to five 
tribal-affiliated organizations and 27 non-tribal entities.
    OMB previously approved data collection under OMB Control Number 
0970-0462 for: the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal Evaluation (Approved 
August 2015); and the National Evaluation impact study; the National 
Evaluation descriptive study; and the Tribal Evaluation (All approved 
June 2017). The proposed data collection activities described in this 
Federal Register Notice will provide data for the impact and cost 
benefit studies of the 27 non-tribal grantees participating in the 
National Evaluation of HPOG 2.0.
    National Evaluation: The National Evaluation pertains only to the 
27 non-tribal grantees that received HPOG 2.0 funding. The design for 
the National Evaluation features an implementation study, a systems 
change analysis, and cost benefit analysis. In addition, the National 
Evaluation is using an experimental design to measure and analyze key 
participant outcomes including completion of education and training, 
receipt of certificates and/or degrees, earnings, and employment in a 
healthcare career. The impact evaluation will assess the outcomes for 
study participants that were offered HPOG 2.0 training, financial 
assistance, and support services, compared to what their outcomes would 
have been if they had not been offered HPOG 2.0 services. This Notice 
provides the opportunity to comment on a proposed new information 
collection activity for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation's impact 
study--the HPOG 2.0 Impact Evaluation first follow-up survey, referred 
to as the Short-Term Follow-up Survey. The first follow-up survey of 
both treatment and control group members will be administered 
approximately 15 months after baseline data collection and random 
assignment. The survey will collect data about key outcomes of 
interest, including participants' tenure and experience in HPOG 
programming; certifications and educational achievements; job 
placement; and receipt of benefits. These are the key outcomes of 
interest for which data are not otherwise available through existing 
data sources. Previously approved collection activities under 0970-0462 
will continue under this new request for the National Evaluation of the 
non-tribal grantees.
    In subsequent requests for clearance, we will submit (1) additional 
data collection instruments to support the descriptive study of the 27 
non-tribal grantees participating in the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation, 
including grantee interview guides and participant interview guides; 
and (2) the second follow-up survey--the Intermediate Follow-up 
Survey--for the HPOG 2.0 National Evaluation impact study. The second 
follow-up survey is for collecting data from both treatment and control 
group members at the 27 non-tribal grantees, approximately 36 months 
after baseline data collection and random assignment. This submission 
will also include data collection necessary for the National 
Evaluation's cost benefit analysis.
    Respondents: For the National Evaluation impact study: HPOG 2.0 
study participants at the 27 non-tribal grantees.
