Title: IV-E Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Financial Report (IV-E-1).

OMB No.: 0970-0205.

Titled: Financial Reporting Form.

Description: This form is used by states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico9 to facilitate the reporting of expenditures for the Foster Care and Adoption Assistance programs. State agencies (including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) use this form to report data on a quarterly basis. The form provides specific data regarding financial disbursements, obligations and estimates. It provides states 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 issue grant awards monitor expenditures. This form is also used to prepare the ACF budget submission to Congress. ACF is implementing the On-Line Data Collection System (OLDC) to allow grantees the option to electronically submit the data.
