Administration for Children and Families

Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

    Title: Maternal and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation 
(MIHOPE) Check-In project--Update contact information, consent forms, 
child and family outcomes survey.
    OMB No.: 0970-0402.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), in 
partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA), both of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 
is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Maternal and 
Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE) Check-In project. The 
purpose of the MIHOPE Check-In project is to maintain 
up[hyphen]to[hyphen]date contact information for families that 
participated in MIHOPE (the national evaluation of the Maternal, 
Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program), so it is possible 
to conduct future follow-up studies and assess the potential long-term 
impact of the program. In addition to contact information, the MIHOPE 
Check-In project will also maintain up-to-date consent forms for the 
collection of administrative data and administer a brief survey on 
child and family outcomes.
    Respondents: Adult participants in MIHOPE and adult primary 
caregivers of children who participated in MIHOPE.
