SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Evaluation of the Child Welfare Capacity Building Collaborative is sponsored by the Children’s Bureau, Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Capacity Building Collaborative includes three centers (Center for States, Center for Tribes, Center for Courts) funded by the Children’s Bureau to provide national child welfare expertise and evidenceinformed training and technical assistance services to state, tribal and territorial public child welfare agencies and Court Improvement Programs (CIPs). The Centers offer a wide array of services including, but not limited to: Web-based content and resources, product development and dissemination, self-directed and groupbased training, virtual learning and peer networking events, and tailored consultation and coaching. During the project period, Center services are E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1 42924 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 160 / Monday, August 19, 2019 / Notices evaluated by both Center-specific evaluations and a Cross-Center Evaluation. The Center-specific evaluations are designed to collect data on Center-specific processes and outcomes, which are used to support service delivery and continuous quality improvement. The Cross-Center Evaluation is designed to respond to a set of cross-cutting evaluation questions posed by the Children’s Bureau. The Cross-Center Evaluation examines: How and to what extent key partners across and within Centers collaborate; whether Center capacity building service interventions are evaluable; the degree to which Centers follow common protocols; what service interventions are delivered and in what services do jurisdictions participate; how satisfied recipients are with services; what outcomes are achieved in jurisdictions receiving Center services and under what conditions are services effective; and what are the costs of services. The Cross-Center Evaluation uses a longitudinal, mixed methods approach to evaluate Center services as they develop and mature over the course of the study. Multiple data collection strategies are used to efficiently capture quantitative and qualitative data to enable analyses that address each evaluation question. Cross-Center Evaluation data sources for this effort include (1) satisfaction surveys to assess recipient satisfaction with services, such as the Learning Experiences Satisfaction Survey; (2) a leadership interview used to assess perceptions of state child welfare directors, tribal child welfare directors, and CIP directors; and (3) a web-based collaboration survey used to assess perceptions of collaboration within and between the capacity building centers. Center-specific data sources for this effort include (1) assessment tools such as the Center for Tribes Needs and Fit Exploration Tools; and (2) service-specific feedback forms, such as the Center for States Intensive Projects instrument and the Center for Courts CQI Workshops instrument. Respondents: Respondents of data collection instruments include (1) child welfare and judicial professionals who use the Collaborative’s products and online courses, that participate in webinars, virtual or in-person trainings, or peer events, and that receive brief or intensive tailored services from the Centers; (2) all State child welfare directors, and Tribal child welfare directors, and CIP coordinators that receive services from the Centers; and (3) directors and staff of the three Capacity Building Centers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Description: The Evaluation of the Child Welfare Capacity Building 
Collaborative is sponsored by the Children's Bureau, Administration for 
Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services. The Capacity Building Collaborative includes three centers 
(Center for States, Center for Tribes, Center for Courts) funded by the 
Children's Bureau to provide national child welfare expertise and 
evidence-informed training and technical assistance services to state, 
tribal and territorial public child welfare agencies and Court 
Improvement Programs (CIPs). The Centers offer a wide array of services 
including, but not limited to: Web-based content and resources, product 
development and dissemination, self-directed and group-based training, 
virtual learning and peer networking events, and tailored consultation 
and coaching. During the project period, Center services are

[[Page 42924]]

evaluated by both Center-specific evaluations and a Cross-Center 
Evaluation. The Center-specific evaluations are designed to collect 
data on Center-specific processes and outcomes, which are used to 
support service delivery and continuous quality improvement. The Cross-
Center Evaluation is designed to respond to a set of cross-cutting 
evaluation questions posed by the Children's Bureau. The Cross-Center 
Evaluation examines: How and to what extent key partners across and 
within Centers collaborate; whether Center capacity building service 
interventions are evaluable; the degree to which Centers follow common 
protocols; what service interventions are delivered and in what 
services do jurisdictions participate; how satisfied recipients are 
with services; what outcomes are achieved in jurisdictions receiving 
Center services and under what conditions are services effective; and 
what are the costs of services.
    The Cross-Center Evaluation uses a longitudinal, mixed methods 
approach to evaluate Center services as they develop and mature over 
the course of the study. Multiple data collection strategies are used 
to efficiently capture quantitative and qualitative data to enable 
analyses that address each evaluation question. Cross-Center Evaluation 
data sources for this effort include (1) satisfaction surveys to assess 
recipient satisfaction with services, such as the Learning Experiences 
Satisfaction Survey; (2) a leadership interview used to assess 
perceptions of state child welfare directors, tribal child welfare 
directors, and CIP directors; and (3) a web-based collaboration survey 
used to assess perceptions of collaboration within and between the 
capacity building centers. Center-specific data sources for this effort 
include (1) assessment tools such as the Center for Tribes Needs and 
Fit Exploration Tools; and (2) service-specific feedback forms, such as 
the Center for States Intensive Projects instrument and the Center for 
Courts CQI Workshops instrument.
    Respondents: Respondents of data collection instruments include (1) 
child welfare and judicial professionals who use the Collaborative's 
products and online courses, that participate in webinars, virtual or 
in-person trainings, or peer events, and that receive brief or 
intensive tailored services from the Centers; (2) all State child 
welfare directors, and Tribal child welfare directors, and CIP 
coordinators that receive services from the Centers; and (3) directors 
and staff of the three Capacity Building Centers.
