SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Description: Section 107(b)(1)(B)(ii) of
the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of
2000, as amended at 22 U.S.C.
7105(b)(1)(B)(ii), authorizes the
Secretary of Health and Human Services
(HHS) to make a grant for a national
communication system—the NHTH—to
assist victims of severe forms of
trafficking in persons in seeking help,
receiving referrals, and reporting
potential trafficking cases.
HHS made an award in the form of a
Cooperative Agreement to a single,
competitively selected grantee to
maintain and support operation of the
NHTH throughout the United States and
U.S. territories. The NHTH is a toll-free
hotline that operates 24 hours a day,
every day of the year.
The Cooperative Agreement
delineates the roles and responsibilities
for the administration of the grant
program, which include:
1. Operating the NHTH with
experienced and trained anti-trafficking
advocates;
2. Operating the NHTH website and
responding to online signals;
3. Promoting NHTH services to
increase the identification and
protection of victims of severe forms of
human trafficking;
4. Providing timely information and
service referrals to human trafficking
victims using a trauma-informed,
person-centered, culturally responsive,
and linguistically appropriate approach;
5. Notifying law enforcement agencies
of potential cases of human trafficking
as well as instances when a trafficking
victim is in imminent danger; and
6. Documenting emerging trafficking
schemes to assist in the detection and
investigation of trafficking cases.
The NHTH grantee collects
information about signalers (individuals
who contact the hotline) and from
signalers regarding potential victims of
a severe form of trafficking in persons
and human trafficking cases. Given the
unique relationship the NHTH has to
the public, OTIP is seeking clearance to
collect information about and from
these signalers that will be summarized
and reported to OTIP by the NHTH
grantee in the aggregate. The NHTH
Performance Indicators information
collection will provide data for OTIP to
assess the extent to which the grantee
meets required program activities to:
Ensure potential victims of
trafficking remain able to access
assistance by constantly monitoring and
mitigating factors impacting NHTH
operations;
Assist the grantee to assess and
improve their project over the course of
the project period;

Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 243 / Wednesday, December 22, 2021 / Notices
Disseminate insights related to
human trafficking cases and trends to
inform anti-trafficking strategies and
policies; and
Provide information to Congress,
other federal agencies, stakeholders, the
public, and other countries on the
aggregate outputs and outcomes of the
NHTH operations.
In accordance with the Paperwork
Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13)
and OMB regulations at 5 CFR part
1320, ACF published a notice in the
Federal Register to announce the
agency’s intention to request OMB
review of this information collection
activity and provide a sixty-day period
for public comment (86 FR 38489).
During the notice and comment period,
one comment was received from the
NHTH grantee. The comment did not
pertain to the burden estimate for
respondents (signalers to the NHTH),
rather the burden on the recordkeeper
(the NHTH grantee).
To be responsive to this comment and
reduce the burden on the recordkeeper,
OTIP modified the collection to remove
several of the data elements that were
initially proposed. Where OTIP has
requested any new data (e.g., data the
grantee is not already providing to OTIP
as a condition of award), particularly,
for existing data to be further
disaggregated, it is in the interest of
allowing OTIP to:
Monitor performance and
operational issues;
Generate more timely insights into
trends related to victim demographics
and service needs, and the impact of
particular intra- and inter-agency efforts,
messaging campaigns, trainings, and
other anti-trafficking efforts on NHTH
signals, and;
Respond to congressional inquiries
and other ad hoc inquiries without
submitting burdensome individual
requests to the NHTH.
Respondents: Potential victims,
representatives of governmental entities,
law enforcement, first responders,
members of the community,
representatives of nongovernmental
entities providing social, legal, or
protective services to individuals in the
United States who may have been
subjected to severe forms of trafficking
in persons utilize the NHTH as
signalers.

Submission for OMB Review;
Unaccompanied Children (UC)
Program Budget Workbook Template
(New Collection)
AGENCY
: Office of Refugee Resettlement,
Administration for Children and
Families, HHS.
ACTION
: Request for public comment.
SUMMARY
: The Administration for
Children and Families’ (ACF) Office of
Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is
requesting clearance for the proposed
new collection titled ‘‘UC Program
Budget Workbook’’ to streamline budget
details and justifications of applicants to
funding opportunities.
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.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Description: The UC Program Budget
Workbook will streamline the budget
detail and justification documentation
for applicants to any upcoming Notice
of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). This
new information collection will provide
guidance to the applicant as well as a
fillable form to insert calculations and
budget line items. With the assistance of
this template, the review of applications
will be expedited since documentation
will be clearer and more unified.
Additionally, this will facilitate the
completion of applications that may not
otherwise be completed due to lack of
budget documentation guidance in past
NOFOs.
Respondents: New and existing
applicants to NOFOs for residential
services for UC.
