Title: Performance Measures for Community-Centered Healthy Marriage, Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood and Community-Centered Responsible Fatherhood Ex-Prisoner Reentry grant programs.

OMB No.: 0970-0365—Reinstatement with changes of a previously approved collection.

Description: The Office of Family Assistance (OFA), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), intends to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to renew OMB Form 0970-0365 for the collection of performance measures from grantees for the Community-Centered Healthy Marriage, Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood and Community-Centered Responsible Fatherhood Ex-Prisoner Reentry discretionary grant programs. The performance measure data obtained from the grantees will be used by OFA to report on the overall performance of these grant programs.

Data will be collected from all 60 Community-Centered Healthy Marriage, 54 Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood and 5 Community-Centered Responsible Fatherhood Ex-Prisoner Reentry grantees in the OFA programs. Grantees will report on program and participant outcomes in such areas as participants' improvement in knowledge skills, attitudes, and behaviors related to healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood. Grantees will be asked to input data for selected outcomes for activities funded under the grants. Grantees will extract data from program records and will report the data twice yearly through an on-line data collection tool. Training and assistance will be provided to grantees to support this data collection process.

Respondents: Office of Family Assistance Funded Community-Centered Healthy Marriage, Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood and Community-Centered Responsible Fatherhood Ex-Prisoner Reentry Grantees.
