Title: TANF High Performance Bonus Report, Assessment of Medicaid and SCHIP Enrollment.
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: Public Law 104-93 (PRWORA) established the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program. It also included provisions for rewarding States that attain the highest levels of success in achieving the legislative goals of that program. The purpose of this collection is to obtain data upon which to base the computation for measuring State performance in meeting those goals by providing Medicaid and SCHIP work supports. DHHS will use the information to allocate the Medicaid/SCHIP portion of the bonus grant funds appropriated under the law and implemented by 45 CFR Part 270 published on August 30, 2000. States will not be required to submit this information unless they elect to compete in a Medicaid/SCHIP measure for the TANF High Performance Bonus awards in Federal fiscal years 2002 or 2003, or any subsequent Federal fiscal year for which Congress authorizes and appropriates bonus funds.
Respondents: Respondents may include any of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
