the statutorily required Plan are set forth at 45 CFR 98.10 through 
98.18. The Plan, submitted on the ACF 118-A, is required biennially,

public with a description of, and assurance about, the Tribal child 
care program. The ACF 118-A is currently approved through May 31, 2014, 
making it available to Tribes needing to submit Plan Amendments through 
the end of the FY 2013 Plan Period. However, on July 1, 2013, Tribes 
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-A with minor corrections and 
modifications.

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
