Submission for OMB Review; Tribal TANF Data Report, TANF Annual 
Report, and Reasonable Cause/Corrective Action Documentation Process

AGENCY: Office of Family Assistance, Administration for Children and 
Families, HHS.

ACTION: Request for public comment.


SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is 
requesting a 3-year extension of the form OFA-0084: Tribal TANF Data 
Report, TANF Annual Report, and Reasonable Cause/Corrective Action 
Documentation Process (OMB #0970-0215, expiration 4/30/2022). There are 
no changes requested to the form.

DATES: Comments due within 30 days of publication. OMB must make a 
decision about the collection of information between 30 and 60 days 
after publication of this document in the Federal Register. Therefore, 
a comment is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it 
within 30 days of publication.

ADDRESSES: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed 
information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of 
this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain. Find this particular 
information collection by selecting ``Currently under 30-day Review--
Open for Public Comments'' or by using the search function. You can 
also obtain copies of the proposed collection of information by 
emailing [email protected]. Identify all emailed requests by 
the title of the information collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: 42 U.S.C. 612 (section 412 of 
the Social Security Act as amended by Pub. L. 104-193, the Personal 
Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996), 
mandates that federally recognized Indian tribes with an approved 
Tribal TANF program collect and submit to the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services data on the recipients served 
by the tribes' programs. This information includes both aggregated and 
disaggregated data on case characteristics and individual 
characteristics. In addition, tribes that are subject to a penalty are 
allowed to provide reasonable cause justifications as to why a penalty 
should not be imposed or may develop and implement corrective 
compliance procedures to eliminate the source of the penalty. Finally, 
there is an annual report that requires the tribes to describe program 
characteristics. All of the above requirements are currently approved 
by OMB, and ACF is simply proposing to extend them without any changes.
    Respondents: Native American tribes and tribal organizations 
operating Tribal TANF programs.
