Title: Improper Payments Information Survey for the TANF Program.
OMB No.: New Collection.
Description: This survey for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program will request that States voluntarily provide information including how they define improper payments in their State, the process used to identify such payments and what actions are taken in the State to reduce or eliminate improper payments. HHS/ACF intends to establish a repository for the State submissions, which will be available to all States for viewing on an HHS/ACF website. This website will provide information that will help States improve their program integrity systems so that improper payments in the TANF program 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
