Start Preamble

Title: TANF Quarterly Financial Report, ACF-196.

OMB No.: 0970-0247.

Description: This information collection is authorized under Section 411(a)(3) of the Social Security Act. This request is for revision of approval to use the Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) 196 form for periodic financial reporting under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. States participating in the TANF program are required by statute to report financial data on a quarterly basis. This form meets the legal standard and provides essential data on the use of Federal funds. Failure to collect the data would seriously compromise ACF's ability to monitor program expenditures, estimate funding needs, and to prepare budget submissions required by Congress. Financial reporting under the TANF program is governed by 45 CFR part 265. This renewal restores columns for reporting Emergency Contingency Fund and Supplemental Grant expenditures.

Respondents: TANF Agencies.
