Notice for October 2006 Advisory Committee Meeting
Document Number: 06-8671
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-10-16
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
The Secretary of Health and Human Services, by authority of 42 U.S.C. 9836A, section 641A(b) of the Head Start Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2), has formed the Advisory Committee on Head Start Accountability and Educational Performance Measures (the Committee). The Committee is governed by the provisions of Public Law 92-463, as amended (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2). The function of the Committee is to help assess the progress of HHS in developing and implementing educational measures in the Head Start Program. This includes the Head Start National Reporting System (NRS). The Committee is to provide recommendations for integrating NRS with other ongoing assessments of the effectiveness of the program. The Committee will make recommendations as to how NRS and other assessment data can be included in the broader Head Start measurement efforts found in the Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES), the National Head Start Impact Study, Head Start's Performance-Based Outcome System, and the ongoing evaluation of the Early Head Start program.

Head Start Program
Document Number: E6-16488
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-10-04
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
This rule finalizes the provisions of the proposed rule published on May 30, 2006 and responds to public comments received as a result of the proposed rule. This final rule authorizes approval of annual waivers, under certain circumstances, from two provisions in the current Head Start transportation regulation (45 CFR part 1310): the requirement that each child be seated in a child restraint system while the vehicle is in motion, and the requirement that each bus have at least one bus monitor on board at all times. Waivers would be granted when the Head Start or Early Head Start grantee demonstrates that compliance with the requirement(s) for which the waiver is being sought will result in a significant disruption to the Head Start program or the Early Head Start program and that waiving the requirement(s) is in the best interest of the children involved. The rule also revises the definition of child restraint system in the regulation to remove the reference to weight which now conflicts with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The regulation also reflects new effective dates for Sec. 1310.12(a) and 1310.22(a) on the required use of school buses or allowable alternate vehicles and the required availability of such vehicles adapted for use of children with disabilities, as the result of enactment of Section 224 of Public Law 109-149 and Section 7012 of Public Law 109-234.

Cost Allocation Methodology Applicable to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program
Document Number: E6-15852
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-09-27
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
The Administration for Children and Families proposes to regulate the cost allocation methodology to be used in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. The proposed rule would require States to use the ``benefiting program'' cost allocation methodology required by OMB Circular A-87 (2 CFR Part 225) and previously required under HHS' Office of Grants and Acquisition Management (OGAM) Action Transmittal (AT) 98-2.

Child Support Enforcement Program; Medical Support
Document Number: 06-7964
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-09-20
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
These proposed regulations would revise Federal requirements for establishing and enforcing medical support obligations in child support enforcement program cases receiving services under title IV-D of the Social Security Act (the Act). The proposed changes would: require that all support orders in the IV-D program address medical support; redefine reasonable-cost health insurance; require health insurance to be accessible, as defined by the State; and make conforming changes to the Federal substantial-compliance audit and State self-assessment requirements.

Notice is hereby given that the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation will award grant funds without competition to the Institute for American Values.

The resulting products can be expected to benefit policymakers and others interested in family policy. The Institute for American Values is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research and education organization conducting interdisciplinary research concerning issues of civil society. The grant will support an 18-month project at a cost of $96,000 in Federal support. The project is also being supported through non- Federal funding sources.

Office Of Community Services; Community Economic Development Program
Document Number: E6-13667
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-08-18
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children and Families Administration
The purpose of the Community Economic Development (CED) grants is to create new employment and business development opportunities for low-income individuals. The Office of Community Services (OCS) awarded a $663,263 CED grant (Grant No. 90EE0720) to Hall Neighborhood House in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on September 29, 2005. Prior to the expenditure of any of the grant funds, the grantee informed OCS in a letter dated April 17, 2006, that it wished to ``relinquish the management and operation of this program effective immediately.'' The letter stated the grantee's ``current financial instability'' as the reason for the action. In an attempt not to lose the benefits for the community that were intended through the CED grant, OCS identified a possible replacement recipient: Action for Bridgeport Community Development, Inc (ABCD). The organization is being considered as a replacement recipient for the following reasons: ABCD is a previously successful CED grantee (grant 90EE0546). ABCD is headquartered approximately a mile and a half from the offices of Hall Neighborhood House (HNH) in Bridgeport, CT and will serve the same community. Also, ABCD and HNH have worked together in the past and reportedly have maintained a good working relationship. ABCD has a significantly sophisticated budget to manage this project effectively. (In 2003, the organization had gross receipts of approximately $20 million.). ABCD was recently selected by the Head Start Bureau to be the successor grantee of HNH's active Head Start grant. ACF Region I Administrator Hugh Galligan speaks highly of the performance of ABCD and has recommended that it be the replacement recipient. OCS has received and reviewed an application from ABCD. Upon finding that the proposed project is significantly similar to the one chosen for funding through HNH, OCS has requested that ABCD be approved as the permanent replacement recipient for Grant No. 90EE0720.
