All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: Tribes use Form ACF– 196T to report expenditures for the Tribal TANF grant. Authority to collect and report this information is found in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, Public Law 104–193. Tribal entities with approved tribal plans for implementation of the TANF program are required under Section 412(h) of the Social Security Act to report financial data. Form ACF–196T provides for the collection of data regarding federal expenditures. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise ACF’s ability to monitor expenditures. This information is also used to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. Financial management of the program would be seriously compromised if the expenditure data were not collected. 45 CFR part 286 Subpart E requires the strictest controls on funding requirements, which necessitates review of documentation in support of tribal expenditures for reimbursement. Comments received from previous efforts to implement a similar Tribal TANF Report Form ACF–196T were used to guide ACF in the development of the product presented with this submittal.
