ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: This is a primary data collection request for the Study of Disability Services Coordinators and Inclusion in Head Start (New Collection). The study aims to provide a nationally representative picture of the Early Head Start (EHS) and Head Start (HS) Disability Services Coordinator (DSC) workforce, as well as services provided to children with disabilities and their families within these programs and how EHS/HS collaborates with services in the community, including health providers, Local Education Agencies, and Part C. This is the first study of the HS/EHS DSC workforce and will contain three Phases of data collection using surveys and qualitative interviews. 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. SUMMARY: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed 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. You can also obtain copies of the proposed collection of information by emailing OPREinfocollection@acf.hhs.gov. All emailed requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Study of DSCs and Inclusion in Head Start will support ACF in better understanding the implementation of EHS/HS policies and ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53963 practices for delivering disability services. This study aims to present a nationally representative description of the characteristics and work of DSCs and related staff in EHS/HS programs and how EHS/HS serves children with disabilities and their families. The study will not allow for statistical generalization beyond EHS/HS and their service populations. The study will report on inclusive practices, staffing, professional development, and collaboration with local education agencies, early intervention programs, health providers, and other community stakeholders who serve young children with disabilities and their families. ACF aims to address the research questions through a national survey of EHS/HS program directors (PhasePhase 1), a survey with DSCs identified by the directors (Phase 2), and a one-time qualitative interview with a subset of DSCs who respond to the web-based survey (Phase 3). There are no data regarding the population of the DSC workforce and subgroups, preventing the team from setting a frame for selecting a nationally representative sample. Given the lack of administrative data and contact information about DSCs, it is essential that a national survey of EHS/HS directors (Phase 1) be conducted to identify DSC respondents. A purposive sample of DSCs who completed the Phase 2 survey will be asked to participate in a semistructured, qualitative interview. Data collection activities will occur over 15 months; the team anticipates January 2022 through March 2023. The proposed data collection will begin shortly after OMB approval. The three Phases of data collection will occur concurrently—the Phase 1 survey will be fielded for approximately 8 months; the Phase 2 survey will be fielded for approximately 12 months; and the Phase 3 interviews will be conducted over 4 months. Respondents: Head Start Directors, Head Start Disability Service Coordinators. Annual Burden Estimates Values in the burden table have been updated since the 60 day Federal Register Notice regarding this study. Accuracy of the table values has been improved by review of response rates from studies with similar designs. In addition, the table has been informed by consultation with community advisors.

ACTION: Request for public comment. AGENCY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting reinstatement of the activities associated with the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSR) collection (OMB #0970–0214). Revisions have been made to the forms to clarify instructions and incorporate new guidance. The activities associated with the Title IV–E Foster Care Eligibility SUMMARY: Reviews and Anti-Discrimination Enforcement Corrective Action Plans were removed from this collection. 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 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 following activities are associated with the CFSR collection: CFSR Statewide Assessment, CFSR Onsite Review, and the CFSR Program Improvement Plan. The collection of information for review of state child and family services programs (45 CFR 1355.33(b), 1355.33(c) and 1355.35(a)) is to determine whether such programs are in substantial conformity with state plan requirements under Titles IV–B and IV– E of the Social Security Act (the Act) and is authorized by section 1123(a) [42 U.S.C. 1320a–2a] of the Act. The CFSR looks at the outcomes related to safety, permanency, and well-being of children served by the child welfare system and at seven systemic factors that support the outcomes. The information collection is needed to monitor state plan requirements under titles IV–B and IV–E of the Act and is required by federal statute. The resultant information will allow ACF to determine if states are in compliance with state plan requirements and are achieving desired outcomes for children and families. If necessary, ACF will require states revise applicable statutes, rules, policies and procedures, and provide proper training to staff, through the development and implementation of program improvement plans. The CFSR reviews not only address conformity with state plan requirements but also assist states in enhancing the capacities to serve children and families. In computing the number of burden hours for this information collection, ACF based the annual burden estimates on ACF’s and states’ experiences in conducting reviews and developing program improvement plans.

    The study will report on inclusive practices, staffing, 
professional development, and collaboration with local education 
agencies, early intervention programs, health providers, and other 
community stakeholders who serve young children with disabilities and 
their families.
    ACF aims to address the research questions through a national 
survey of EHS/HS program directors (PhasePhase 1), a survey with DSCs 
identified by the directors (Phase 2), and a one-time qualitative 
interview with a subset of DSCs who respond to the web-based survey

workforce and subgroups, preventing the team from setting a frame for 
selecting a nationally representative sample. Given the lack of 
administrative data and contact information about DSCs, it is essential 
that a national survey of EHS/HS directors (Phase 1) be conducted to
