Proposed Projects:

Title: Child Care and Development Fund Quarterly Financial Report (ACF-696).

OMB No.: 0970-0163.

Description: States and Territories use this form to facilitate the reporting of expenditures for the Child Care and Development Fund on a quarterly basis. The form provides specific data regarding financial disbursements, obligations, and estimates. It provides States and Territories with a mechanism to request grant awards and certify the availability of State matching funds. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) ability to monitor expenditures. This form may also be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. This information collection is a revised version of the currently used ACF-696 for which Office of Management and Budget approval expires on September 30, 2002.

Respondents: States and Territories that are CCDF grantees.

Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Information Services, 370 L'Enfant Promenade, SW., Washington, DC 20447, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection.

The Department specifically requests comments on: (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
