SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services policy stipulates that committee membership be balanced in terms of points of view represented, and the committee’s function. Appointments shall be made without discrimination on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, disability, and cultural, religious, or socioeconomic status. Nominees must be U.S. citizens, and cannot be full-time employees of the U.S. Government. Current participation on federal workgroups or prior experience serving on a federal advisory committee does not disqualify a candidate; however, HHS policy is to avoid excessive individual service on advisory committees and multiple committee memberships. Committee members are Special Government Employees, requiring the filing of financial disclosure reports at the beginning and annually during their terms. CDC reviews potential candidates for BSC, NCEH/ATSDR membership each year, and provides a slate of nominees for consideration to the Secretary of HHS for final selection. HHS notifies selected candidates of their appointment near the start of the term in June, or as soon as the HHS selection process is completed. Note that the need for different expertise varies from year to year and a candidate who is not selected in one year may be reconsidered in a subsequent year. Nominees must be U.S. citizens, and cannot be full-time employees of the U.S. Government. Candidates should submit the following items: D Current curriculum vitae, including complete contact information (telephone numbers, mailing address, email address) D At least one letter of recommendation from person(s) not employed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. (Candidates may submit letter(s) from current HHS employees if they wish, but at least one letter must be submitted by a person not employed by an HHS agency (e.g., CDC, NIH, FDA, etc.). Nominations may be submitted by the candidate him- or herself, or by the person/organization recommending the candidate. The Director, Management Analysis and Services Office, has been delegated the authority to sign Federal Register notices pertaining to announcements of meetings and other committee management activities for both CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

OMB No.: 0970–0391. 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 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) to be conducted October 2018 through August 2019. The objective of the 2019 NSECE is to document the nation’s current supply of early care and education services (that is, home-based providers, center-based providers, and the center-based provider workforce). The 2019 NSECE will collect information on child care and early education providers that serve families with children from birth to 13 years in the country, as well as the early care and education (ECE) workforce providing these services. The proposed collection will consist of three coordinated nationally representative surveys: 1. A survey of individuals providing care for children under the age of 13 in a residential setting (Home-based Provider Interview), 2. A survey of providers of care to children ages 0 through 5 years of age (not yet in kindergarten) in a nonresidential setting (Center-based Provider Interview), and 3. A survey conducted with individuals employed in center-based child care programs working directly with children in classrooms (Workforce Interview). Both the home-based and centerbased provider surveys will require a screener to determine eligibility for the main survey. The 2019 NSECE data collection efforts will provide urgently needed information about the supply of child care and early education available to families across all income levels, including providers serving low-income families of various racial, ethnic, language, and cultural backgrounds, in diverse geographic areas. The provider data will include programs that do or do not participate in the child care subsidy program, are regulated, registered, or otherwise appear in state or national lists and are home-based providers or, center-based programs (e.g., private, community-based child care, Head Start, and state or local Pre-K). Accurate data on the availability and characteristics of early care and education programs are essential to assess the current and changing landscape of child care and early education programs since the 2012 NSECE data collection, and to provide insights to advance policy and initiatives in the ECE field. Respondents: Home-based providers serving children under 13 years, centerbased child care providers (including public schools) serving children ages 0 through 5 years of age (not yet in kindergarten), and selected instructional staff members from these center-based child care providers.

Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Title: 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education.
    OMB No.: 0970-0391.
    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 2019 National Survey of Early Care 
and Education (NSECE) to be conducted October 2018 through August 2019. 
The objective of the 2019 NSECE is to document the nation's current 
supply of early care and education services (that is, home-based 
providers, center-based providers, and the center-based provider 
workforce). The 2019 NSECE will collect information on child care and 
early education providers that serve families with children from birth 
to 13 years in the country, as well as the early care and education 
(ECE) workforce providing these services. The proposed collection will 
consist of three coordinated nationally representative surveys:
    1. A survey of individuals providing care for children under the 
age of 13 in a residential setting (Home-based Provider Interview),
    2. A survey of providers of care to children ages 0 through 5 years 
of age (not yet in kindergarten) in a non-residential setting (Center-
based Provider Interview), and
    3. A survey conducted with individuals employed in center-based 
child care programs working directly with children in classrooms 
(Workforce Interview).
    Both the home-based and center-based provider surveys will require 
a screener to determine eligibility for the main survey.
    The 2019 NSECE data collection efforts will provide urgently needed 
information about the supply of child care and early education 
available to families across all income levels, including providers 
serving low-income families of various racial, ethnic, language, and 
cultural backgrounds, in diverse geographic areas. The provider data 
will include programs that do or do not participate in the child care 
subsidy program, are regulated, registered, or otherwise appear in

characteristics of early care and education programs are essential to 
assess the current and changing landscape of child care and early 
education programs since the 2012 NSECE data collection, and to provide 
insights to advance policy and initiatives in the ECE field.
    Respondents: Home-based providers serving children under 13 years, 
center-based child care providers (including public schools) serving 
children ages 0 through 5 years of age (not yet in kindergarten), and 
selected instructional staff members from these center-based child care 
providers.
