Download as PDF 741 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 21 / Thursday, January 31, 2019 / Notices For the implementation studies, the research team will collect data from program staff to assess program implementation. Information will be collected in consistent ways across sites and, to the extent feasible, will use the same measures and data collection procedures. Data collected from program staff during the study will include the following: (1) Site visit data including staff interviews, (2) interviews with case managers as part of the participant case studies mentioned above, and (3) program staff surveys. These data will be used to measure program implementation and fidelity, factors affecting service delivery, program staff characteristics, and staff time allocation. All impact study sites will include an implementation study. In addition, there will be several descriptive studies of other sites that use some of the implementation instruments to better understand programs serving clients with opioid use and other substance abuse disorders. Future information collection requests and related Federal Register Notices will describe future data collection efforts for this project. Respondents: Participants enrolled in the study, program staff, national policy experts and researchers, and state and local administrators.

OMB No.: 0970–0248. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting a three-year extension of the ACF–204 (Annual MOE Report). The report is used to collect descriptive program characteristics information on the programs operated by States and Territories in association with their Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs. All State and Territory expenditures claimed toward States and Territories MOE requirements must be appropriate, i.e., meet all applicable MOE requirements. The Annual MOE Report provides the ability to learn about and to monitor the nature of State and Territory expenditures used to meet States and Territories MOE requirements, and it is an important source of information about the different ways that States and Territories are using their resources to help families attain and maintain selfsufficiency. In addition, the report is used to obtain State and Territory program characteristics for ACFs annual report to Congress, and the report serves as a useful resource to use in Congressional hearings about how TANF programs are evolving, in assessing State the Territory MOE expenditures, and in assessing the need for legislative changes. Respondents: The 50 States of the United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Instrument Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response Total burden hours ACF–204 .......................................................................................................... 54 1 118 6,372 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 6,372.
