The second reporting period is from April 1 through June 30, 2011 and the report for this period is due no later than August 31, 2011. The report form and instructions were transmitted via TANF-ACF-PI-2011- 03, Form ACF-812, the Report on Engagement in Additional Work Activities for Families Receiving Assistance under the TANF and SSP-MOE Programs.
