Title: State Child Access Program Survey—Grants to States for Access and Visitation.

OMB No.: 0970-0204 (current).

Description: The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) requests an extension of the current survey—without change—for three additional fiscal years (FY 2006-2008).

States are required, on an annual basis, to provide OCSE with program data on projects that have been funded through the Grants to States for Access and Visitation Program. This program reporting requirement includes, but is not limited to, the collection of data on the number of participants served, referral sources, kinds of services delivered, identification of local service providers, and the number of non-custodial parents whose parenting time increased as a result of participating in such services.

The purpose of collecting this information is twofold: (1) To help OCSE monitor state utilization of grant funds; and (2) to compile data, on an annual basis, into a report that provides states—in addition to the general public—with information on individual state Access and Visitation Program in an effort to promote cross-fertilization of innovative services at the local level.

Respondents: State Child Access and Visitation Program Coordinators and administrators of state, court and/or local service providers.
