Title: Head Start Program Information Report.
OMB No.: 0970-0427.
Description: The Office of Head Start within the Administration for Children and Families, United States Department of Health and Human Services, is proposing to renew, with changes, authority to collect information using the Head Start Program Information Report (PIR), monthly enrollment, contacts, and center locations. All information is collected electronically through the Head Start Enterprise System (HSES). The PIR provides information about Head Start and Early Head Start services received by the children and families enrolled in Head Start programs. The information collected in the PIR is used to inform the public about these programs, to make periodic reports to Congress about the status of children in Head Start programs as required by the Head Start Act, and to assist the administration and training/technical assistance of Head Start programs. Other program data is used to track enrollment, contact the program, provide a locator for parents to find a nearby program, and for oversight.
Respondents: Head Start and Early Head Start program grant recipients.
