Title: Mentoring Children of Prisoners Online Data Collection (OLDC).

OMB No.: 0970-0266.

Description: The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Amendments of 2001 (Pub.

The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), United States Department of Health and Human Services, administers the Mentoring Children of Prisoners (MCP) program. The MCP program creates lasting, high quality, one-on-one relationships that provide young people with caring adult Start Printed Page 34254role models. Information from the Mentoring Children of Prisoners Online Data Collection is necessary for ACF's reporting and planning under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA), and to support evaluation requirements within GPRA.

Data collection ensures that ACF knows if grantees of the MCP program are meeting the established targets (established based on research and benchmarks) recorded in the grant application as required by the GPRA, and that mentoring activities are faithful to characteristics established by research as essential to success. Data collected will also support grantees as they carry out ongoing responsibilities, maintain program service, and manage information for internal uses.

Respondents: Public, faith-based and community organizations receiving funding to implement the MCP program.
