Start Preamble

Title: Territory TANF Financial Report (ACF-196TR).

OMB No.: New collection.

Description: Authority to collect and report this information is found in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA), Public Law 104-193. Territories with approved plans for implementation of the TANF program are required by statute to report financial data. Form ACF-196TR provides for collection of Federal expenditures data. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) ability to monitor expenditures and maintain financial management of the Territories TANF program. The financial data collected is also used to estimate outlays and may be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. Federal policy requires the strictest controls on funding requirements, which necessitates review of documentation in support of Territories expenditures for reimbursement.
