Title: Improper Payments Information Survey for the TANF Program; Improper Payments Information Survey for the CCDF Program.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: These surveys for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) programs will request that States voluntarily provide information including how States define improper payments in their State, the process used to identify such payments, and what actions are taken in States to reduce or eliminate improper payments. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) intends to establish a repository for State submissions, which will be available to all States for viewing on an ACF Web site. This Web site will provide information that will help States improve their program integrity system(s) so that improper payments in the programs can be reduced.

Respondents: The 50 States of the United States, the District of Columbia, and the Territories of Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.Start Printed Page 13511
