OMB No.: New collection.

Description: The Family and Youth Services Bureau. (HHS/ACF/ACYF/FYSB) and the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation(HHS/ACF/OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) propose a data collection activity as part of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Multi-Component Evaluation.

In addition to other activities, the PREP Evaluation will document the design of the PREP State grant programs via data gathered from States and selected sub-awardees funded by PREP. The findings will be of interest to the general public, federal and state policy-makers, PREP sub-awardees, community-based organizations, and other organizations interested in teen pregnancy prevention programming.

The proposed activity involves the collection of information through telephone conversations or in-person interviews held with administrators and program staff at the State and sub-awardee level. The data collection instrument will focus on information related to program context, administration, and design. This includes, but is not limited to: Program goals and strategy/approach, program setting, population characteristics, state-level requirements and processes, program monitoring, and training and technical assistance.

Respondents: State Level Coordinators; Program Directors; Program Staff; General Staff; Schools and Organizations; and Community-Based Organizations.
