Download as PDF 40516 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 158 / Wednesday, August 15, 2018 / Notices Primary data for the evaluation will be collected via surveys with project directors, case managers, and key community partners; and semistructured qualitative interviews, including telephone interviews with project directors, in-person interviews with select project staff, survivor leaders, and program partners, and individual interviews with program clients. Interviews from multiple perspectives will enhance the government’s understanding of appropriate service models and practice strategies for identifying, engaging, and meeting the needs of diverse populations of victims of severe forms of human trafficking. Data collection will take place after receiving OMB approval through March 2020. Data collection for an exploratory evaluation of the DVHT FY15 grantees (‘‘Domestic Human Trafficking Demonstration Projects’’) is being conducted under a prior Information Collection Request under 0970–0487. The data have provided insight into approaches grantees used to enhance organizational and community capacity, identify domestic victims, and deliver case management and direct services in collaboration with their community partners. The currently proposed data collection for DVHT FY16 will build on this earlier data collection for the DVHT FY15 study to understand strategies and program models implemented by the grantees in various program contexts. All data collection approved for DVHT FY15 is complete. Respondents: Project directors, case managers, survivor leaders, other select project staff, key community partners, and clients.

The objective of the 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.

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 E:\FR\FM\15AUN1.SGM 15AUN1 40517 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 158 / Wednesday, August 15, 2018 / Notices insights to advance policy and initiatives in the ECE field.

Submission for OMB Review; 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 National Survey of Early Care and 
Education (NSECE) which will be conducted October 2018 through August 
2019. The objective of the 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 
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, 
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.
