ACTION: Public comment request. AGENCY: Title: Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other LowIncome Populations (0970–0506). SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing an increase in the number of sites for data collection activities to be conducted as part of the Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other Low-Income Populations. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs approved this information collection in March 2018 (0970–0506). As approved, we planned to include three employment programs. We have since identified three additional employment programs to include in the study. This Notice provides the opportunity for public comment on the addition of three sites. 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. The programs included in the study are Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) agencies and other public or private employment programs that serve low-income individuals. 2 Average burden hour per response 5.00 Annual burden hours 100 Selected sites 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 includes an impact and implementation study. The impact study involves 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 have not changed since OMB/ OIRA approval. The only change to this information collection is to add three additional sites. Respondents: Program staff and individuals enrolled in the Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other Low-Income Populations. Program staff may include coaches, case managers, workshop instructors, job developers, supervisors, and managers. All participants will be able to opt out of participating in the data collection activities.

    Title: Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other Low-
Income Populations (0970-0506).
SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is 
proposing an increase in the number of sites for data collection 
activities to be conducted as part of the Evaluation of Employment 
Coaching for TANF and Other Low-Income Populations. The Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Office of Information and Regulatory 
Affairs approved this information collection in March 2018 (0970-0506). 
As approved, we planned to include three employment programs. We have 
since identified three additional employment programs to include in the 
study. This Notice provides the opportunity for public comment on the 
addition of three sites.
    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.
    The programs included in the study are Temporary Assistance for 
Needy Families (TANF) agencies and other public or private employment 
programs that serve low-income individuals. Selected sites 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 includes 
an impact and implementation study.
    The impact study involves 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 have not changed 
since OMB/OIRA approval. The only change to this information collection 
is to add three additional sites.
    Respondents: Program staff and individuals enrolled in the 
Evaluation of Employment Coaching for TANF and Other Low-Income 
Populations. Program staff may include coaches, case managers, workshop 
instructors, job developers, supervisors, and managers. All 
participants will be able to opt out of participating in the data 
collection activities.
