Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Home Visiting Career Trajectories.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at 
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), in 
collaboration with the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA), seeks approval to collect information from home visiting 
program staff in programs receiving funding through the Maternal, 
Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program as part of 
the Home Visiting Career Trajectories study. ACF is interested in 
collecting information about the state of the home visiting workforce, 
career trajectories of home visitors, and strategies for building a 
pipeline of qualified home visitors and supervisors.
    Through the proposed information collection, the researchers will 
obtain information about the characteristics, qualifications, and 
career trajectories of home visiting staff. The study will include a 
national survey of the MIECHV workforce, interviews with training and 
technical assistance experts, and site visits to home visiting programs 
in eight states that vary in terms of geography, population 
demographics, labor markets, and home visiting program offerings.
    Respondents: Home visiting program managers, supervisors, home 
visitors, and training and technical assistance experts.
