Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation; Administration for Children and Families; HHS. ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: A goal of the Performance Measures and Adulthood Preparation Subjects (PMAPS) studies is to collect, analyze, and report on performance measure data for the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) programs. The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) and the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) in the SUMMARY: Administration for Children and Families (ACF) request a revision to a currently approved information collection (OMB No. 0970–0497; expiration date: 04/30/2020). The purpose of the request is to make adaptions to the participant entry and exit surveys, and continue the ongoing data collection of the performance measures from PREP grantees. 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. ADDRESSES: Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by emailing OPREinfocollection@acf.hhs.gov. Alternatively, copies can also be obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports Clearance Officer. All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The PMAPS studies consist of two components: The Performance Measures Study and the Adulthood Preparation Subjects Study. The data collection for the Adulthood Preparation Subjects Study is complete. This notice is specific to a request for an extension of data collection activities for the Performance Measures Study only. The Performance Measures Study component includes collection and analysis of performance measure data from State PREP (SPREP), Tribal PREP (TPREP), Competitive PREP (CPREP), and Personal Responsibility Education Innovative Strategies (PREIS) grantees. Data will be used to determine if PREP and PREIS grantees are meeting performance benchmarks related to the program’s mission and priorities. This request includes the development of adapted participant entry and exit surveys for middle school students (6th, 7th, and 8th grade youth) that exclude the most sensitive questions pertaining to sexual behavior. This is because some of the PREP middle school curricula do not include topics on sexual behavior, i.e., focus only on healthy relationship education. The adapted surveys will be used by all grantees that serve middle school youth. In addition, some minor edits have been made to the high school surveys. Respondents: Performance measurement data collection instruments will be administered to individuals representing SPREP, TPREP, CPREP, and PREIS grantees, their subawardees, and program participants.

Form ACF–196T is used by tribes to report expenditures for the Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) grant. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will use the financial data provided by tribes to estimate quarterly funding needs, calculate award amounts, and assess compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements. ACF is requesting an extension with no changes to the form and minor updates to the instructions. DATES: Comments due within 30 days of publication. OMB is required to make a decision concerning the collection of information between 30 and 60 days after publication of this document in the Federal Register. Therefore, a comment is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. SUMMARY: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent directly to the following: Office of Management and Budget, Paperwork Reduction Project, Email: OIRA_ SUBMISSION@OMB.EOP.GOV, Attn: Desk Officer for the Administration for Children and Families. Copies of the proposed collection may be obtained by emailing infocollection@ acf.hhs.gov. Alternatively, copies can also be obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, ADDRESSES: Washington, DC 20201, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. 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. Respondents: All Tribal TANF Agencies. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Form Total number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response Annual burden hours ACF–196T ........................................................................................................ 75 4 1.5 450 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Feb 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\28FEN1.SGM 28FEN1
