Submission for OMB Review; Evaluation of the National Human Trafficking Hotline Program (New Collection)
The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Evaluation of the National Human Trafficking Hotline (NHTH) Program. This data collection activity will examine the experiences of individuals who seek assistance from the NHTH after their interactions with the NHTH. The study will collect information via voluntary phone and Web-based surveys at two time points: (1) Immediately after an individual has contacted the NHTH by phone, text, or live online chat; and (2) two weeks later.
Proposed Information Collection Activity; National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center (NHTTAC) Evaluation Package (OMB #0970-0519)
The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is requesting to continue data collection with an increased number of respondents to the previously approved information collection, National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center (NHTTAC) Evaluation Package (OMB #0970-0519, expiration 10/31/2021). This request was originally approved under expedited review and increased the estimated burden hours from 689 hours to 9,497 hours. In addition, the previously approved Stop, Observe, Ask, and Respond to human trafficking (SOAR) Online Participant Feedback Form was restructured into a long and short form to reduce burden for information collected on SOAR Online training participants outside of the NHTTAC learning management system. There are no changes requested to the items on any forms.
