with the flexibility to propose an approach that is feasible and 
sufficient to demonstrate compliance based on State circumstances and 
processes. State Lead Agencies will participate in onsite monitoring 
based on a 3-year cohort; submitting data once every three years. OCC 
will begin monitoring for compliance in Fiscal Year 2019.

implementation strategies. As a response, OCC developed the Compliance 
Demonstration Packet that offers states the opportunity to propose 
their approach to demonstrating compliance based on how their CCDF 
program is administered. OCC also consulted other federal programs and 
monitoring experts on the Onsite Monitoring System's development and 
incorporated their feedback regarding the efficiency and efficacy of 
the proposed process.
    During the development of the Onsite Monitoring System, OCC 
conducted pilots in a number of States. Feedback received from pilot 
States and the pilot results were used to enhance the monitoring 
process and data collection method. Burden estimates below are based on 
an analysis of data collected through all of the pilot visits while

    Respondents: State grantees and the District of Columbia.
    Annual Burden Estimates: Respondents will be required to submit 2 
separate instruments. First the Compliance Demonstration Chart will be
