ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing a new information collection to assess the implementation of Project Connect, a comprehensive home visitation intervention that provides home-based services and treatment to child welfareinvolved, substance-affected families with children and adolescents ages 0 to 17. DATES: Comments due within 30 days of publication. OMB must make a decision about 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. ADDRESSES: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed SUMMARY: information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAMain. Find this particular information collection by selecting ‘‘Currently under 30-day Review—Open for Public Comments’’ or by using the search function. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The proposed information collection activity will assess the implementation of Project Connect, a comprehensive home visitation intervention that provides home-based services and treatment to child welfare-involved, substanceaffected families with children and adolescents ages 0 to 17. The program aims to strengthen and address the complex needs of substance-affected families by providing intensive, longterm services that address issues of unhealthy parental substance use and provide help for parents recover while keeping children safe. It focuses on maintaining children safely in their homes and preventing admission to care, or facilitating reunification when children have been placed in out-ofhome care. The implementation study will support a planned effectiveness evaluation that will rely on administrative data to examine the impact of the program on child welfare outcomes. These information collection activities will take place over the course of five site visits to the program and child welfare agency that are participating in the study. Information collection activities include interviews with program and child welfare agency administrators, focus groups with program and child welfare agency staff, interviews and focus groups with participants, interviews with other program stakeholders, and observations of program staff meetings, program delivery, and judicial hearings. Site visits will also include direct observations of staff delivery of the program, program staff meetings, and relevant judicial hearings/activities for program families. This evaluation is part of a larger project to help ACF build the evidence base in child welfare through rigorous evaluation of programs, practices, and policies. The activities and products from this project will contribute to evidence building in child welfare and help to determine the effectiveness of a substance use program on child welfare outcomes. Respondents: Semi-structured interviews will be completed with agency and program administrators, parents who are participating in the program, parents receiving services as usual, and other program stakeholders. Focus groups will be conducted with agency and program staff and parents who are participating in the program and parents receiving services as usual.

Find this particular information collection by selecting ‘‘Currently under 30-day Review—Open for Public Comments’’ or by using the search function. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The purpose of the FACES data collection is to support the 2007 reauthorization of the Head Start program (Pub. L. 110–134), which calls for periodic assessments of Head Start’s quality and effectiveness. FACES 2019 focuses on Head Start Regions I through X (which are geographically based); AIAN (American Indian and Alaska Native) FACES 2019 focuses on Region XI (which funds Head Start programs that serve federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes). Both studies will provide data on a set of key indicators for Head Start programs. Information about the Head Start program recruitment and center selection processes and on the fall 2019 and spring 2020 data collection activities for both FACES and AIAN FACES can be found here: https:// www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=202005-0970-009. The studies are adding a fall 2021 data collection to address how families are faring during the COVID–19 pandemic. Data collection activities will include classroom and child sampling information collection, parent surveys, teacher child reports, and teacher surveys. Sampling will begin with a freshening of the programs included in FACES fall 2019 and spring 2020 waves for a target of 180 programs that are nationally representative of all Head Start programs in the 2021–2022 program year. FACES fall 2021 data collection will take place in 60 of the 180 programs. AIAN FACES will return to the same 22 programs that participated in 2019 and 2020 data collection. Sampling of teachers and children starts with sampling activities for 162 Head Start centers (120 for FACES 2019 and 42 for AIAN FACES 2019) in fall 2021. Study team members will request a list of all teachers and home visitors working with Head Start-funded children. Next, for each selected teacher or home visitor, we will request information for each child enrolled. For the fall 2021 collection, FACES will survey the parents of 2,400 Head Start children in Regions I–X (FACES 2019) and 800 children in Region XI (AIAN FACES 2019) and ask their Head Start teachers to rate children’s social and emotional skills. Parents of sampled children (2,400 for FACES and 800 for AIAN FACES) will complete surveys on the web or by telephone about their children and family in the context of the COVID–19 pandemic. Head Start teachers will rate each sampled child (approximately 10 children per classroom) using the Web or paper-and pencil forms. Teachers will also complete a survey, also using the web or paper-and-pencil forms, about their well-being and background. Additional data collection activities, to include the programs and respondents from fall 2021 plus the remaining 120 FACES programs, are planned for spring 2022 and will be included in a future Federal Register notice.

Abstract: HRSA is requesting approval by OMB for an extension of a previously approved collection of information (OMB control number 0915–0290). The National Survey of Organ Donation Attitudes and Practices is conducted approximately every 6–7 years and serves a critical role in providing HRSA and the donation community with data regarding why Americans choose to donate organs, current barriers to donation, and possible paths to increasing donations. Survey data and derived analytic insights help HRSA develop and target appropriate messages for public outreach and educational initiatives. A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on April 19, 2021, vol. 86, No. 73; pp. 20374. There were no public comments. DATES: Authority: Section 640(a)(2)(D) and section 649 of the Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007. Average burden per response (hours) Need and Proposed Use of the Information: OMB previously approved this survey and HRSA fielded it during 2005, 2012, and 2019. Results of the data collected from this survey will help develop appropriate messages for future public outreach and educational initiatives to increase awareness about organ donation and ultimately the number of registered donors. Likely Respondents: A nationally representative sample of adults over the age of 18 with a high number of responses from populations of interest such as racial-ethnic minorities, including African American, Asian, Native American, and Hispanic respondents, as well as respondents of all age groups and education levels. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for collecting, validating, verifying, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Description: The purpose of the FACES data collection is to support 
the 2007 reauthorization of the Head Start program (Pub. L. 110-134), 
which calls for periodic assessments of Head Start's quality and 
effectiveness.
    FACES 2019 focuses on Head Start Regions I through X (which are 
geographically based); AIAN (American Indian and Alaska Native) FACES 
2019 focuses on Region XI (which funds Head Start programs that serve 
federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes). Both 
studies will provide data on a set of key indicators for Head Start 
programs. Information about the Head Start program recruitment and 
center selection processes and on the fall 2019 and spring 2020 data 
collection activities for both FACES and AIAN FACES can be found here: 
https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=202005-0970-009.
    The studies are adding a fall 2021 data collection to address how 
families are faring during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data collection 
activities will include classroom and child sampling information 
collection, parent surveys, teacher child reports, and teacher surveys.
    Sampling will begin with a freshening of the programs included in 
FACES fall 2019 and spring 2020 waves for a target of 180 programs that 
are nationally representative of all Head Start programs in the 2021-

60 of the 180 programs. AIAN FACES will return to the same 22 programs 
that participated in 2019 and 2020 data collection.
    Sampling of teachers and children starts with sampling activities 
for 162 Head Start centers (120 for FACES 2019 and 42 for AIAN FACES 
2019) in fall 2021. Study team members will request a list of all

Next, for each selected teacher or home visitor, we will request 
information for each child enrolled.
    For the fall 2021 collection, FACES will survey the parents of 
2,400 Head Start children in Regions I-X (FACES 2019) and 800 children 
in Region XI (AIAN FACES 2019) and ask their Head Start teachers to 
rate children's social and emotional skills. Parents of sampled 
children (2,400 for FACES and 800 for AIAN FACES) will complete surveys 
on the web or by telephone about their children and family in the

sampled child (approximately 10 children per classroom) using the Web 
or paper-and pencil forms. Teachers will also complete a survey, also 
using the web or paper-and-pencil forms, about their well-being and 
background. Additional data collection activities, to include the 
programs and respondents from fall 2021 plus the remaining 120 FACES
