Start Preamble

Title: Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Annual Report.

OMB No.: New.

Description: Section 678E of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act requires States, including the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories, to annually prepare and submit a report on the measured performance of the State and the eligible entities in the State. Prior to the participation of the State in the performance measurement system, the State shall include in the report any information collected by the State relating to such performance. Each State shall also include in the report an accounting of the expenditure of funds received by the State through the CSBG program, including an accounting of funds spent on administrative costs by the State and the eligible entities, and funds spent by the eligible entities on the direct delivery of local services, and shall include information on the number of and characteristics of clients served under the subtitle in the State, based on data collected from the eligible entities. The State shall also include in the report a summary describing the training and technical assistance offered by the State.

This request will support an automated Annual Report form, streamlining State administrative information and incorporating Results Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) Next Generation as well as National Performance Indicators (NPI) for individual, family, and community measures as reported by eligible entities. The revised and automated form may impose an added first-use burden; however, this burden will lessen in subsequent years. Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained by visiting: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/​programs/​ocs/​programs/​csbg.

Respondents: State Governments, including the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories and CSBG eligible entities.
