    Title: Child Care and Development Fund Plan for States/Territories 
for FFY 2014-2015 (ACF-118).
    OMB No.: 0970-0114.
    Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the 
Plan) for States and Territories is required from each CCDF Lead agency 
in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block 
Grant Act of 1990, as amended (Pub. L. 101-508, Pub. L. 104-193, and 42 
U.S.C. 9858). The implementing regulations for the statutorily required 
Plan are set forth at 45 CFR 98.10 through 98.18. The Plan, submitted 
on the ACF-118, is required biennially, and remains in effect for two 
years. The Plan provides ACF and the public with a description of, and 
assurance about, the States' and Territories' child care programs. The 
ACF-118 is currently approved through December 31, 2013, making it 
available to States and Territories needing to submit Plan Amendments 
through the end of the FY 2013 Plan Period. However, on July 1, 2013, 
States and Territories will be required to submit their FY 2014-2015 
Plans for approval by September 30, 2013. Consistent with the statute 
and regulations, ACF requests revision of the ACF-118 with minor 
corrections and modifications.
    The Office of Child Care (OCC) has given thoughtful consideration 
to the comments received from the 1st Public Notice. OCC has revised 
the document to reflect some of the changes made to minimize the burden 
of the collection of information on respondents. The revised document 
contains revisions to improve the accuracy and clarity of questions in 
order to improve the quality of information that is collected. This 
second Public Comment Period provides an opportunity for the public to 
submit comments to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The 
Tribal Plan (ACF-118a) will be addressed under a separate notice.
    Copies of the proposed collection may be obtained by writing to the 
Administration for Children and Families, Office of Administration,
