Title: Guidance for the Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program.
OMB No.: 0970-0157.
Description: 42 U.S.C. 612 (Section 412 of the Social Security Act) requires each Indian Tribe that elects to administer and operate a TANF program to submit a TANF Tribal Plan. The TANF Tribal Plan is a mandatory statement submitted to the Secretary by the Indian Tribe, which consists of an outline of how the Indian Tribe's TANF program will be administered and operated. It is used by the Secretary to determine whether the plan is approvable and to determine that the Indian Tribe is eligible to receive a TANF assistance grant. It is also made available to the public.
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing to revise the guidance by adding a certification page and is requesting additional details regarding economic development. ACF expects the additional information to add an estimated eight burden hours to each Indian Tribe's submission. This is reflected in the annual burden estimates shown below.
Respondents: Indian Tribes applying to operate a TANF program.
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Request for State Data Needed to Determine the Amount of a Tribal Family Assistance Grant||20||1||68||1,360|
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,360.
Additional Information: Copies of the proposed collection may be obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Administration, Office of Information Services, 370 L'Enfant Promenade, SW., Washington, DC 20447, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. E-mail address: email@example.com.
