Title: Form ACF-196R, “TANF Quarterly Financial Report.”
OMB No.: 0970-0446.
Description: This information collection is authorized under Section 411(a)(3) of the Social Security Act. This request is for continued approval of Form ACF-196R for quarterly 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. The forms meet the legal standard and provide essential data on the use of federal TANF funds. Failure to collect the data would seriously compromise ACF's ability to monitor program expenditures, estimate funding needs, and to prepare budget submissions and annual reports required by Congress. Financial reporting under the TANF program is governed by 45 CFR part 265.
Respondents: State agencies administering the TANF program.Start Printed Page 24715
