Title: Child Care Quarterly Case Record Report—ACF-801.

OMB No.: 0970-0167.

This notice replaces a prior Federal Register notice soliciting comments published Friday, December 16, 2011 (regarding the Child Care Quarterly Case Record Report—ACF-801, OMB No.: 0970-0167), which has been withdrawn.

Description: Section 658K of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990 (Pub. L. 101-508, 42 U.S.C. 9858) requires that States and Territories submit monthly case-level data on the children and families receiving direct services under the Child Care and Development Fund. The implementing regulations for the statutorily required reporting are at 45 CFR 98.70. Case-level reports, submitted quarterly or monthly (at grantee option), include monthly sample or full population case-level data. The data elements to be included in these reports are represented in the ACF-801. ACF uses disaggregate data to determine program and participant characteristics as well as costs and levels of child care services provided. This provides ACF with the information necessary to make reports to Congress, address national child care needs, offer technical assistance to grantees, meet performance measures, and conduct research. Consistent with the statute and regulations, ACF requests extension of the ACF-801. With this extension, ACF is proposing to add several new data elements as well as some minor changes and clarifications to the existing reporting requirements and instructions. These proposed revisions to the ACF-801 would allow OCC to capture child-level data on provider quality for each child receiving a child care subsidy.

Respondents: States, the District of Columbia, and Territories including Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianna Islands.
