Title: Child Care and Development Fund Annual Financial Report for Tribes (ACF-696T).
OMB No.: 0970-0195.
Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) annual financial reporting form (ACF-696T) provides a mechanism for Indian Tribes to report expenditures under the CCDF program. The CCDF program provides funds to Tribes, as well as States and Territories, to assist low-income families in obtaining child care so that they can work or attend training/education, and to improve the quality of care. Information collected via the ACF-696T allows the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to monitor expenditures and to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. This information collection is a revised version of the currently-used ACF-696T for which Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval expires on February 28, 2002.
Respondents: Indian Tribes and Tribal Organizations that are CCDF grantees.
