SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Human Services Analysis Execution project is proposing to collect information for a qualitative study to explore how families of different ethnic and racial backgrounds have experienced changes that one state made to TANF policies and services in response to the COVID–19 pandemic. ADDRESSES: We will explore policies such as jobsearch and other participation requirements, virtual resources and services, and the provision of tablet computers to TANF participants. We will collect information at the state level and from three purposively selected sites in one state, selected to represent the racial and ethnic diversity within the state. The state-level data collection will include (1) TANF program administrators and (2) representatives from the program partnering with the state in the provision of tablet computers to TANF program participants. Information collection at each of the three sites will include semi-structured interviews or focus groups with: (1) TANF program administrators, frontline staff, and participants; and (2) community partner organizations that serve TANF-eligible families and individuals served by those organizations. Site visits will be conducted in-person or virtually, depending on the state of the COVID– 19 pandemic at the time of the site visits. This study is part of a larger project to help ACF identify racial and ethnic disparities in related to the delivery of human services. This study is intended to present an internally-valid description of how different racial and ethnic groups experience TANF policies, practices, and service delivery in one state at selected sites, not to promote statistical generalization to other sites or service populations. Respondents: (1) State and regional TANF agency administrators, (2) TANF frontline staff at the site-level, (3) staff at community agencies that serve TANF-eligible families, (4) staff from the computer tablet program and from program partner organizations, (5) TANF participants, (6) tablet program participants, and (7) individuals who are eligible for TANF but not enrolled.

(2) To what degree do toolkit resources change agency staff attitudes and increase staff knowledge? (3) What implementation approaches and organizational supports facilitate toolkit use by child welfare agencies? Proposed data sources for this effort include five surveys: (1) a survey to measure users’ reactions to the toolkit; (2) a survey of users’ attitudes toward Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (PAE)-related issues; (3) a survey of users’ knowledge about PAErelated issues; and (4 and 5) two versions of a survey of transfer potential and perceived competence, which measures users’ sense of competence in PAE-related knowledge and skills and the extent to which users believe they will transfer knowledge/skills to their work. One version of this instrument contains the full survey and will be administered after users have been exposed to the full toolkit and its resources. The second version contains a smaller selection of key items from the survey, tailored to collect information from users after their exposure to each of five key modules of the toolkit. All data will be collected over the course of 6–9 months in 2023. Respondents: Child welfare professionals, including state and/or county-level directors of child welfare agencies; supervisors; program staff (e.g., investigation/intake, case management, foster care/adoption/ permanency, etc.); staff working in specialist roles that align with toolkit resources (e.g., data/quality improvement specialists); local or state agency managers involved in determining agency strategic plans and practice guidance (e.g., substanceexposed newborn program manager); training system lead staff.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Description: The proposed information collection effort will gather 
data from end users of a toolkit of resources sponsored by the 
Children's Bureau in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention under an interagency agreement. The toolkit is intended 
to support child welfare agency staff in the identification and support 
of children living with prenatal exposure to alcohol and other 
substances. The data collected will be used in a formative evaluation 
of the toolkit, which will be guided by three research questions: (1) 
To what degree do agency staff find toolkit resource to be relevant and 
applicable to their work? (2) To what degree do toolkit resources 
change agency staff attitudes and increase staff knowledge? (3) What 
implementation approaches and organizational supports facilitate 
toolkit use by child welfare agencies? Proposed data sources for this 
effort include five surveys: (1) a survey to measure users' reactions 
to the toolkit; (2) a survey of users' attitudes toward Prenatal 
Alcohol Exposure (PAE)-related issues; (3) a survey of users' knowledge 
about PAE-related issues; and (4 and 5) two versions of a survey of 
transfer potential and perceived competence, which measures users' 
sense of competence in PAE-related knowledge and skills and the extent 
to which users believe they will transfer knowledge/skills to their 
work. One version of this instrument contains the full survey and will 
be administered after users have been exposed to the full toolkit and 
its resources. The second version contains a smaller selection of key 
items from the survey, tailored to collect information from users after 
their exposure to each of five key modules of the toolkit. All data 
will be collected over the course of 6-9 months in 2023.

county-level directors of child welfare agencies; supervisors; program

specialists); local or state agency managers involved in determining 
agency strategic plans and practice guidance (e.g., substance-exposed 
newborn program manager); training system lead staff. All data will be 
collected over the course of 6-9 months in 2023.
