ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is requesting a 3-year extension of the information collection—Case Plan Requirement, Title IV–E of the Social Security Act, (OMB #0970–0428, expiration 3/31/2021). ACF is reporting a change to the information collection— the burden estimates in the previouslyapproved request were based on the number of children in foster care as the respondent instead of the agency completing the case plan. The burden estimates, therefore, are adjusted accordingly. 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, ACF is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above. SUMMARY: 38141 Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded 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 (OPRE), 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection. ADDRESSES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The case plan information collection is authorized in sections 422(b)(8)(A)(ii) and 471(a)(16), and defined in sections 475 and 475A of the Social Security Act (the Act). Statutory requirements in the Act mandate that states, territories, and tribes with an approved title IV–E plan develop a case plan and case review system for each child in the foster care system for whom the state, territory, or tribe receives title IV–E reimbursement of foster care maintenance payments. The case review system assures that each child has a case plan designed to achieve placement in a safe setting that is the least restrictive, most family-like setting available and in close proximity to the child’s parental home, consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child. States, territories, and tribes meeting these requirements also partly comply with title IV–B, section 422(b), of the Act, which assures certain protections for children in foster care. The case plan is a written document that provides a narrative description of the child-specific program of care. Federal regulations at 45 CFR 1356.21(g) and sections 475 and 475A of the Act delineate the specific information that must be addressed in the case plan. ACF does not specify a format for the case plan nor does ACF require submission of the document to the federal government. Case plan information is recorded in a format developed and maintained by the state, territorial, or tribal title IV–E agency. Respondents: State, territorial, and tribal title IV–E agencies. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES ANNUAL BURDEN ESTIMATES Instrument Total number of respondents Total number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response Total burden hours Annual burden hours Case Plan .......................................................................... 64 26,427 4.8 8,118,374 2,706,125 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,706,125.

the information collection--Case Plan Requirement, Title IV-E of the 
Social Security Act, (OMB #0970-0428, expiration 3/31/2021). ACF is 
reporting a change to the information collection--the burden estimates 
in the previously-approved request were based on the number of children 
in foster care as the respondent instead of the agency completing the 
case plan. The burden estimates, therefore, are adjusted accordingly.

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, ACF is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The case plan information 
collection is authorized in sections 422(b)(8)(A)(ii) and 471(a)(16), 
and defined in sections 475 and 475A of the Social Security Act (the 
Act). Statutory requirements in the Act mandate that states, 
territories, and tribes with an approved title IV-E plan develop a case 
plan and case review system for each child in the foster care system 
for whom the state, territory, or tribe receives title IV-E 
reimbursement of foster care maintenance payments.
    The case review system assures that each child has a case plan 
designed to achieve placement in a safe setting that is the least 
restrictive, most family-like setting available and in close proximity 
to the child's parental home, consistent with the best interest and 
special needs of the child. States, territories, and tribes meeting 
these requirements also partly comply with title IV-B, section 422(b), 
of the Act, which assures certain protections for children in foster 
care.
    The case plan is a written document that provides a narrative 
description of the child-specific program of care. Federal regulations 
at 45 CFR 1356.21(g) and sections 475 and 475A of the Act delineate the 
specific information that must be addressed in the case plan. ACF does 
not specify a format for the case plan nor does ACF require submission
