OMB No.: 0970-0271 (formerly 0915-0291 when in HRSA).

Description: The Title V Section 510 Abstinence Education Grant Program (Section 510 program) is a formula block grant program, authorized through June 30, 2007, by the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006.

The Section 510 Annual Program Application requires basic application information that will be used by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to establish applicant eligibility, determine each applicant's compliance with Federal law, review and evaluate each applicant's proposed plans, and to develop any conditions to be placed on grant awards. Projects must meet the legislative priorities as described in Section 510 of Title V of the Social Security Act.

The Section 510 Annual Performance Progress Report includes four forms through which grantees report basic performance information, which is used by ACF to determine each grantee's compliance with Federal law and to review and evaluate each applicant's progress toward achieving its goals. Basic performance information includes the unduplicated count of clients served, hours of service received by clients, program completion data, and communities served.

Respondents: The 50 States, the District of Columbia, and the following 8 Territories: American Samoa, Guam, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Republic of Palau, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
