Comments in Response to the 60-Day Federal Register Notice

In response to the 60-day Federal Register notice related to this proposed data collection and published on February 23, 2017, vol. 82, No. 35; pp. 11472-11473. No public comments to the evaluation materials were received, however; in an effort to maintain consistency between evaluation instruments, ACL has decided to change some of the wording and response options to Question 37 in the Tribal caregiver survey. This is in keeping with ACL's National Family Caregiver Support Program Evaluation Caregiver Survey as well as the National Evaluation of the Title III-C Services Client Outcomes Survey CAPI Questionnaire and does not substantively change the information being collected.
