Start Preamble

Title: DRA TANF Final Rule.

OMB No.: 0970-0338.


When the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) reauthorized the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, it imposed a new data requirement that States prepare and submit data verification procedures and replaced other data requirements with new versions including: the TANF Data Report, the SSP-MOE Data Report, the Caseload Reduction Documentation Process, and the Reasonable Cause/Corrective Compliance Documentation Process. The Claims Resolution Act of 2010 extended the TANF program through September 2011. We are proposing to continue these information collections without change.

Respondents: States, Territories and Tribes.
