Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the Plan) for States and Territories is required from each CCDF Lead agency in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990 (CCDBG Act), as amended, CCDBG Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 113–186), and 42 U.S.C 9858. The Plan, submitted on the ACF–118, is required triennially, and remains in effect for three years. The Plan provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurance about the States’ and Territories’ child care programs. These Plans are the applications for CCDF funds. The ACF–118 is currently approved through December 31, 2018. This Notice is required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The PRA requires Federal agencies to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for any information collection that will ask the same question of ten or more persons. The process includes publication of an initial Federal Register Notice (FRN) allowing 60 days for public comments on the initial plan for information collection, the publication of a second FRN allowing 30 days for public comment on the final proposed information collection, and review and approval by the OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Due to unanticipated events, the Office of Child Care (OCC) could not comply with the regular PRA clearance process that calls for two Federal Register Notices (60- and 30-day) and comment periods by the July 1, 2018 CCDF Plan submission deadline. The OCC requested and was granted clearance for this FY 2019–2021 CCDF Plan Preprint from OMB under emergency clearance procedure for six months with an expiration date of December 31, 2018. Because the CCDF Plan covers three year effective period, we are initiating the full clearance process to obtain OMB approval to use this document for the entire three year period. The Office of Child Care (OCC) gave thoughtful consideration to the comments received from the 30-day emergency Public Notice. OCC revised the document to reflect some of the changes made to minimize the administrative burden of the collection of information on respondents. The revised document contains revisions to improve the accuracy and clarity of policy questions, definitions, and guidance in order to improve the quality of information that is collected.

OMB No.: 0970–0474. Summary: The Administration for Children and Families erroneously published a document in the Federal Register of December 19, 2018 (83 FR 65167). This current publication supersedes the referenced previous publication. This Notice provides the opportunity for public comment on the described U.S. Repatriation Program Forms. Description: The United States (U.S.) Repatriation Program was established by Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act (Assistance for U.S. Citizens Returned from Foreign Countries) to provide temporary assistance to U.S. citizens and their dependents who have been identified by the Department of State (DOS) as having returned, or been brought from a foreign country to the U.S. because of destitution, illness, war, threat of war, or a similar crisis, and are without available resources immediately accessible to meet their needs. The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was provided with the authority to administer this Program. On or about 1994, this authority was delegated by the HHS Secretary to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and later re-delegated by ACF to the Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response (OHSEPR). The Repatriation Program works with States, Federal agencies, and non- VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Jan 30, 2019 Jkt 247001 governmental organizations to provide eligible individuals with temporary assistance for up to 90 days. This assistance is in the form of a loan and must be repaid to the Federal Government. The Program was later expanded in response to legislation enacted by Congress to address the particular needs of persons with mental illness (24 U.S.C. Sections 321 through 329). Further refinements occurred in response to Executive Order (E.O.) 11490 (as amended), which gave HHS the responsibility to ‘‘develop plans and procedures for assistance at ports of entry to U.S. personnel evacuated from overseas areas, their onward movement to final destination, and follow-up assistance after arrival at final destination.’’ In addition, under E.O. 12656 (53 CFR 47491), ‘‘Assignment of emergency preparedness responsibilities,’’ HHS was given the lead responsibility to develop plans and procedures to provide assistance to U.S. citizens and others evacuated from overseas. Overall, the Program manages two major activities, Emergency and Nonemergency Repatriation. The ongoing routine arrivals of individual repatriates and the repatriation of individuals with mental illness constitute the Program Non-emergency activities. Emergency activities are comprised of group repatriations (evacuations of 50–500 individuals) and emergency repatriations (evacuations of 500 or more individuals). Operationally, these activities involve different kinds of preparation, resources, and implementation. However, the core Program policies and administrative procedures are essentially the same. The Program provides services through agreements with local repatriation service providers (e.g. States, federal agencies, non-governmental agencies, etc.). For the purpose of this Program, local repatriation service provider (local provider) has the same definition of ‘‘agency’’ as defined under 45 CFR 212.1 (i). The list of Repatriation Forms is as follows: 1. Emergency and Group Processing Form (RR–01): During an emergency repatriation, individuals complete portions of this form to apply for repatriation assistance. Then State personnel use the form to perform a preliminary eligibility assessment. Authorized ACF staff make final eligibility decisions. 2. Emergency and Group Repatriation Financial Form (RR–02): States and supporting agencies complete this form PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 739 if they have entered into an agreement with OHSEPR allowing for reimbursement of reasonable and allowable costs during emergency repatriation activities. 3. Repatriation Loan Waiver and Deferral Request Form (RR–03): Eligible repatriates, authorized legal custodians, or authorized state staff complete this form to request a waiver or deferral of a repatriation loan. 4. Non-Emergency Monthly Financial Statement Form (RR–04): States and other authorized OHSEPR agencies use this form to request reimbursement of reasonable and allowable costs for the provision of temporary assistance during non-emergency activities. 5. Privacy and Repayment Agreement Form (RR–05): This form authorizes HHS to release personally identifiable information to appropriate agencies for the purpose of providing services. In addition, through this form, eligible repatriates or authorized legal custodians agree to accept services under the Program’s terms and conditions, which include repaying the federal government for services received. 6. Refusal of Temporary Assistance Form (RR–06): Eligible repatriates or authorized legal custodians use this form to confirm and record their decision to relinquish repatriation services. 7. Temporary Assistance and Extension Request Form (RR–07): To request an extension of assistance beyond the 90-day eligibility period, eligible repatriates, authorized legal custodians, or authorized state staff submit this form to OHSEPR or its designated grantee generally 14 days prior to the expiration of the repatriate’s eligibility period. 8. Emergency and Group Repatriation State Request for Federal Support Form (RR–08): During emergency repatriation activities, OHSEPR-activated states must use this form to request support and/or assistance from the federal government, including but not limited to augmentation of personnel, funding, and reimbursement. Respondents: Repatriation Program local repatriation service providers and individuals repatriated or evacuated by DOS from overseas. These respondents are authorized under Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1313), Executive Order 12656 (amended by E.O. 13074, February 9, 1998; E.O. 13228, October 8, 2001; E.O. 13286, February 28, 2003), and 45 CFR 211 & 212.

Grant Act of 1990 (CCDBG Act), as amended, CCDBG Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 
113-186), and 42 U.S.C 9858. The Plan, submitted on the ACF-118, is 
required triennially, and remains in effect for three years. The Plan 
provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurance about

    This Notice is required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). The 
PRA requires Federal agencies to request approval from the Office of

comments on the initial plan for information collection, the 
publication of a second FRN allowing 30 days for public comment on the
