The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing data collection activities as part of the Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) to Serve TANF Recipients and Other Low Income Individuals. ACF has developed a multi-pronged research and evaluation approach for the HPOG Program to better understand and assess the activities conducted and their results. Two rounds of HPOG grants have been awardedthe first in 2010 (HPOG 1.0) and the second in 2015 (HPOG 2.0). There are federal evaluations associated with each round of grants. HPOG grants provide funding to government agencies, community- based organizations, post-secondary educational institutions, and tribal-affiliated organizations to provide education and training services to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals, including tribal members. Under HPOG 2.0, ACF provided grants to five tribal-affiliated organizations and 27 non-tribal entities. OMB previously approved data collection under OMB Control Number 0970-0462 for the HPOG 2.0 National and Tribal Evaluation. The first submission, approved in August 2015, included baseline data collection instruments and the grant performance management system. A second submission, approved in June 2017, included additional data collection for the National Evaluation impact study, the National Evaluation descriptive study, and the Tribal Evaluation. A third submission for National Evaluation impact study data collection was approved in June 2018.

Document Number: 2019-06898
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-04-08
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Building Evidence on Employment Strategies for Low-Income Families (BEES). The purpose of BEES is to evaluate the effectiveness of a broad range of innovative programs designed to boost employment and earnings among low-income Americans. Within this general focus area, ACF has a particular interest in programs that serve adults whose employment prospects have been affected by substance use disorder (SUD), opioid use disorder (OUD), mental health conditions, and justice involvement. ACF expects that a subset of programs to be evaluated will serve these specific target populations. To meet these objectives, this study will include impact and implementation evaluations for up to 21 sites, as well as descriptive work focused on other sites that have a focus on clients with opioid use and other substance abuse disorders. When possible, a randomized control trial research design will be used for the impact evaluations. The purpose of the current submission is to request approval for data collection needed for the BEES study.

Head Start Service Duration Requirements
Document Number: 2019-05363
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-03-26
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Office of Head Start currently requires Head Start programs to operate 100-percent of their preschool center-based slots for 1,020 annual hours by August 1, 2021, which would substantially increase the minimum amount of time preschool children must receive Head Start services. We believe the approach to require all center- based programs to increase their hours of operation was too prescriptive and will reduce grant recipients' flexibility to meet the needs of the communities they serve. It would be costly for grantees to meet the increased service-duration requirement and would likely result in a reduction in the number of children served by Head Start. For these reasons, we propose to remove the 100-percent service duration requirement from the HSPPS. We also propose technical changes to our Program Structure regulations.

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), proposes data collection activities as part of the Youth Empowerment IDEAS study. The goal of this project is to collect data that will inform educational topics and strategies for an optimal-health sexual risk avoidance (SRA) approach to reducing teen pregnancy and improving youth well-being. The project will identify strategies, skills, messages, and themes that are most likely to resonate with youth. The project will inform hypotheses on how to increase the effectiveness of sex education approaches so that more youth avoid the risks associated with teen sex, and teen pregnancy rates are reduced. To support these efforts, we seek OMB approval to collect survey information from a nationally-representative sample of youth and young adults age 14-24 and a nationally-representative sample of parents of teens ages 14-18.

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families
The Administration for Children and Families erroneously published a document in the Federal Register of December 19, 2018 (83 FR 65167). This current publication supersedes the referenced previous publication. This Notice provides the opportunity for public comment on the described U.S. Repatriation Program Forms. Description: The United States (U.S.) Repatriation Program was established by Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act (Assistance for U.S. Citizens Returned from Foreign Countries) to provide temporary assistance to U.S. citizens and their dependents who have been identified by the Department of State (DOS) as having returned, or been brought from a foreign country to the U.S. because of destitution, illness, war, threat of war, or a similar crisis, and are without available resources immediately accessible to meet their needs. The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was provided with the authority to administer this Program. On or about 1994, this authority was delegated by the HHS Secretary to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and later re-delegated by ACF to the Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response (OHSEPR). The Repatriation Program works with States, Federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations to provide eligible individuals with temporary assistance for up to 90 days. This assistance is in the form of a loan and must be repaid to the Federal Government. The Program was later expanded in response to legislation enacted by Congress to address the particular needs of persons with mental illness (24 U.S.C. Sections 321 through 329). Further refinements occurred in response to Executive Order (E.O.) 11490 (as amended), which gave HHS the responsibility to ``develop plans and procedures for assistance at ports of entry to U.S. personnel evacuated from overseas areas, their onward movement to final destination, and follow-up assistance after arrival at final destination.'' In addition, under E.O. 12656 (53 CFR 47491), ``Assignment of emergency preparedness responsibilities,'' HHS was given the lead responsibility to develop plans and procedures to provide assistance to U.S. citizens and others evacuated from overseas. Overall, the Program manages two major activities, Emergency and Non-emergency Repatriation. The ongoing routine arrivals of individual repatriates and the repatriation of individuals with mental illness constitute the Program Non-emergency activities. Emergency activities are comprised of group repatriations (evacuations of 50-500 individuals) and emergency repatriations (evacuations of 500 or more individuals). Operationally, these activities involve different kinds of preparation, resources, and implementation. However, the core Program policies and administrative procedures are essentially the same. The Program provides services through agreements with local repatriation service providers (e.g. States, federal agencies, non- governmental agencies, etc.). For the purpose of this Program, local repatriation service provider (local provider) has the same definition of ``agency'' as defined under 45 CFR 212.1 (i). The list of Repatriation Forms is as follows: 1. Emergency and Group Processing Form (RR-01): During an emergency repatriation, individuals complete portions of this form to apply for repatriation assistance. Then State personnel use the form to perform a preliminary eligibility assessment. Authorized ACF staff make final eligibility decisions. 2. Emergency and Group Repatriation Financial Form (RR-02): States and supporting agencies complete this form if they have entered into an agreement with OHSEPR allowing for reimbursement of reasonable and allowable costs during emergency repatriation activities. 3. Repatriation Loan Waiver and Deferral Request Form (RR-03): Eligible repatriates, authorized legal custodians, or authorized state staff complete this form to request a waiver or deferral of a repatriation loan. 4. Non-Emergency Monthly Financial Statement Form (RR-04): States and other authorized OHSEPR agencies use this form to request reimbursement of reasonable and allowable costs for the provision of temporary assistance during non-emergency activities. 5. Privacy and Repayment Agreement Form (RR-05): This form authorizes HHS to release personally identifiable information to appropriate agencies for the purpose of providing services. In addition, through this form, eligible repatriates or authorized legal custodians agree to accept services under the Program's terms and conditions, which include repaying the federal government for services received. 6. Refusal of Temporary Assistance Form (RR-06): Eligible repatriates or authorized legal custodians use this form to confirm and record their decision to relinquish repatriation services. 7. Temporary Assistance and Extension Request Form (RR-07): To request an extension of assistance beyond the 90-day eligibility period, eligible repatriates, authorized legal custodians, or authorized state staff submit this form to OHSEPR or its designated grantee generally 14 days prior to the expiration of the repatriate's eligibility period. 8. Emergency and Group Repatriation State Request for Federal Support Form (RR-08): During emergency repatriation activities, OHSEPR- activated states must use this form to request support and/or assistance from the federal government, including but not limited to augmentation of personnel, funding, and reimbursement. Respondents: Repatriation Program local repatriation service providers and individuals repatriated or evacuated by DOS from overseas. These respondents are authorized under Title XI, Section 1113 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1313), Executive Order 12656 (amended by E.O. 13074, February 9, 1998; E.O. 13228, October 8, 2001; E.O. 13286, February 28, 2003), and 45 CFR 211 & 212.
