DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The purpose of the proposed data collection activity is to document and examine the following: Why individual users contact the NHTH; hotline users’ perceptions of hotline staff’s knowledge and skills; the extent to which users felt their interaction was helpful, they were supported by the NHTH, they were satisfied with the NHTH, and their needs were met by the interaction; and outcomes from NHTH interactions (e.g., users’ knowledge and use of available resources and referrals). The proposed data collection activity includes a twophase approach to obtain information from individual users after their contact (via phone, text, or live online chat) with the NHTH. The proposed information collection activities are (1) an integrated voice response telephone survey or Web-based survey immediately after NHTH contact; and (2) a telephone or Web-based survey approximately two weeks after completion of the first survey. The survey immediately after contact with the NHTH will be offered to all individuals who contact the NHTH during the data collection period and includes questions focused on users’ experiences and satisfaction with their NHTH interaction. The follow-up survey will be administered two weeks later with a sample of respondents who completed the immediate survey and consented to be contacted two weeks later. This second survey includes questions focused on the extent to which NHTH users were satisfied with their NHTH contact and felt that the NHTH contact was helpful. Respondents: Individuals who contact the NHTH by telephone, text, or live online chat.
