OMB No.: 0970–NEW. Description: Section 471(e)(4)(E) of the Social Security Act (the Act) (42 U.S.C. 671) as amended by Public Law 115–123 requires state and tribal child welfare agencies to collect and report to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) information on children receiving prevention and family services and programs. States and tribes must report: • The specific services or programs provided, • The total expenditures for each of the services or programs provided, • The duration of the services or programs provided, and • If the child was identified in a prevention plan as a candidate for foster care: Æ The child’s placement status at the beginning, and at the end, of the 12 PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response 4 1 1 451 40 60 Total burden hours 133,496 2,960 4,440 month period that begins on the date the child was identified as a candidate for foster care in a prevention plan; and Æ whether the child entered foster care during the initial 12 month period and during the subsequent 12 month period. It is anticipated that half or less of the tribes and states will choose to provide these prevention services in the first years of the program availability, but that number will increase over time. The data collected will inform federal policy decisions, program management, and responses to Congressional and Departmental inquiries. Specifically, the data will provide information about the use and availability of prevention services to children to prevent the need for foster care placement. The data will contain personally identifiable information (date of birth and race/ ethnicity). Respondents: State and tribal child welfare agencies. E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1
