ACF may require an information collection approved under this generic from funding recipients in order to obtain or retain benefits. Following standard OMB requirements for a generic information collection, ACF will submit a generic information collection request for each individual data collection activity under this generic clearance. Each request will include the individual form(s) and instructions, and a short overview of the proposed purpose and use of the data collected. OMB should review requests within 10 days of submission.
