Title: TANF High Performance Bonus Report, Assessment of Medicaid and SCHIP Enrollment.

OMB No.: 0992-0007.

Description: Pub. L. 104-93, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (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, which is a proposed extension without change of a collection currently in use, is to obtain data upon which to base the computation for measuring State performance in meeting those goals by providing Medicaid and State Children's Health Insurance (SCHIP), Program work supports. HHS will use the information to allocate the Medicaid/SCHIP program 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 on a Medicaid/SCHIP measure for the TANF High Performance Bonus awards in any Federal 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.
