Title: Court Improvement Program.
OMB No.: 0970-0245.
Description: The Court Improvement Program provides grants to State court systems to conduct assessments of their foster care and adoption laws and judicial processes and to develop and implement a plan for system improvement. ACF proposes to collect information from the States about this program (applications, program reports) by way of a Program Instruction, which (1) describes the requirements for States under the reauthorization of the Court Improvement Program; (2) outlines the programmatic and fiscal provisions and reporting requirements of the program; (3) specifies the application submittal and approval procedures for the program for Fiscal Years 2003 through 2006; and (4) identifies technical resources for use by State courts during the course of the program. This Program Instruction contains information collection requirements that are found in Pub. L. 103-66, as amended by Pub. L. 105-89 and Pub. L. 107-133; and pursuant to receiving a grant award. The agency will use the information received to ensure compliance with the statute and provide training and technical assistance to the grantees.
