Child Support Intergovernmental Case Processing Innovation Demonstration: This Forecast is modified to correct the funding opportunity number. HHS-2019-ACF-OCSE-FC-1541 has been changed to HHS-2019-ACF-OCSE-FD-1541. This Forecast is modified to correct the Eligibility section. Native American tribal organizations (other than Federally recognized tribal governments) has been changed to Native American tribal governments (Federally recognized). The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) forecast invites eligible applicants to submit competitive grant applications to test how the child support program can improve intergovernmental case processing and collections. The specific project objectives of this goal are to: 1) Increase payments on intergovernmental cases; AND 2) Improve case processing procedures to increase efficiency and customer service. Project designs may vary by grantee, but will fall within a broad demonstration framework which incorporates procedural justice principles, behavioral economics concepts, and enhanced communication strategies to accomplish the two project objectives above. Grants may also be used to acquire and/or enhance technical capabilities that could improve intergovernmental case processing. Some examples include automation, staffing, data analysis, system analysis, and completing technical steps required to gain access to the Federal Parent Locator Service (e.g., the cost of the security assessment). Grantees will evaluate projects by comparing administrative data using pre/post analysis regarding collections and case processing timeframes. The evaluation work can be done by state or tribal IV-D staff or a third-party evaluator. Additionally, grantees must support information sharing and partnerships with other state and tribal Title IV-D agencies to improve their intergovernmental case processing activities. Notice About Section 1115 Funding: The statute authorizes recipients of Section 1115 grant funding to draw down Federal Financial Participation (FFP) on the award amount according to the cost sharing rate for the recipient organization. Any FFP requested in association with this grant funding must become part of the project budget. The award amounts (ceiling and floor) listed in this forecast reflect only 1115 funding and the expected number of awards and estimated average award amount assumes a mix of state and tribal awardees. OCSE expects that the total award ceiling for all projects, accounting for Section 1115 funding and applicable FFP, will be $500,000, and that most awards will be funded at the award ceiling amount for the applicant's organization type. The following information is to help potential applicants determine their award ceiling and floor based on the FFP cost sharing rate for recipient organization type. For States with 66 percent FFP: The Section 1115 Award Ceiling is $170,000 and the floor is $20,000. The FFP amount, calculated using the Section 1115 award ceiling amount, is $330,000. A project awarded the Section 1115 Award Ceiling of $170,000 would receive a total award of $500,000. For Tribes with 80 percent FFP: The Section 1115 Award Ceiling is $100,000 and the floor is $20,000. The FFP award, calculated using the Section 1115 award ceiling amount, is $400,000. A project awarded the Section 1115 Award Ceiling of $100,000 would receive an estimated total award of $500,000. For Tribes with 90% percent FFP: The Section 1115 Award Ceiling is $50,000 and the floor is $20,000. The FFP award, calculated using the Section 1115 award ceiling amount, is $450,000. A project awarded the Section 1115 Award Ceiling of $50,000 would receive an estimated total award of $500,000.
