Description: The Office of Family Assistance (OFA), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), intends to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of performance measures from grantees for the Healthy Marriage and Promoting Responsible Fatherhood discretionary grant programs. The performance measure data obtained from the grantees will be used by OFA to report on the overall performance of this grant program and to inform the Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) process if the program is selected for PART review. Data will be collected from all 118 Healthy Marriage and 96 Responsible Fatherhood grantees in the OFA program. Grantees will report on program outputs and outcomes in such areas as participant's improvement in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors related to healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood. Grantees will be asked to input data for selected outputs and outcomes for activities funded under the grant. Grantees will extract data from program records and will report the data twice yearly through the ACF on-line data collection tool (OLDC). Training and assistance will be provided to grantees to support this data collection process.
