Title: Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Performance Measures and Adult Preparation Subjects (PMAPS) Studies—Data Collection Related to the Performance Measures Study.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (HHS/ACF/OPRE) and the Family and Youth Services Bureau (HHS/ACF/ACYF/FYSB) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) propose a data collection activity as part of the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Performance Measures and Adult Preparation Subjects (PMAPS) Studies. The goals of the PMAPS studies are to collect, analyze, and report on performance measure data for PREP programs and to develop and test Adult Preparation Subjects (APS) conceptual models.

The PMAPS studies consist of two components: The “Performance Measures Study,” and the “Adult Preparation Subjects Study.” This notice is specific to data collection activities for the Performance Measures Study only. The Performance Measures Study component includes collection and analysis of performance measure data from State PREP (SPREP), Tribal PREP (TPREP), Competitive PREP (CPREP), and Personal Responsibility Education Innovative Strategies (PREIS) grantees. Data will be used to determine if PREP and PREIS grantees are meeting performance benchmarks related to the program's mission and priorities.

Respondents: Performance measurement data collection instruments will be administered to individuals representing SPREP, TPREP, CPREP, and PREIS grantees, their subawardees, and program participants.Start Printed Page 63764
