Title: Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Multi-Component Evaluation—Data Collection Related to the Design and Implementation Study.

OMB No.: 0970-0398.

Description: The Office of Data Analysis, Research, and Evaluation (HHS/ACF/ACYF/ODARE) in the Administration for Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) 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.

The goals of the PREP Multi-Component Evaluation are to document how PREP programs are designed and implemented in the field, collect performance measure data for PREP programs, and assess the effectiveness of selected PREP-funded programs.

The PREP Multi-Component Evaluation contains three components: The “Design and Implementation Study,” the “Performance Analysis Study,” and the “Impact and In-Depth Implementation Study.” This notice is specific to data collection activities for the implementation portion of the Design and Implementation Study.

The goals of this portion of the study are to document how States and sub-awardees actually implemented their PREP programs, given their program designs. In order to meet this goal, both State PREP Administrators and a selection of sub-awardee program providers will be interviewed. The interviews will be used to understand important aspects of implementation, such as training, technical assistance and program fidelity monitoring.

Respondents: State grantee staff; State training and technical assistance staff; State program evaluator staff program providers.
