    Title: Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Multi 
Component Evaluation--Design Survey.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Family and Youth Services Bureau (HHS/ACF/ACYF/
FYSB) and the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (HHS/ACF/
OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) propose a 
data collection activity as part of the Personal Responsibility 
Education Program (PREP) Multi Component Evaluation.
    In addition to other activities, the PREP Evaluation will document 
the design of the PREP State grant programs via data gathered from 
States and selected sub-awardees funded by PREP. The findings will be 
of interest to the general public, federal and state policy-makers, 
PREP sub-awardees, community-based organizations, and other 
organizations interested in teen pregnancy prevention.
    The proposed activity involves the collection of information 
through telephone conversations or in-person interviews held with 
administrators and program staff at the State and sub awardee level. 
The data collection instrument will focus on information related to 
program context, administration, and design. This includes, but is not 
limited to: Program goals and strategy/approach, program setting, 
population characteristics, state-level requirements and processes, 
program monitoring, and training and technical assistance.
    Respondents: State Level Coordinators; Program Directors; Program 
Staff; General Staff; Schools and Organizations; and Community-Based 
Organizations.
