TO:

State agencies administering or supervising an approved Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program and other interested parties.

SUBJECT:

Renewed Form ACF-202, Caseload Reduction Report.

REFERENCE:

Section 407(b)(3) of the Social Security Act, 45 CFR 261.40 et seq.

PURPOSE:

To transmit the renewed form ACF-202 and instructions for completing that form, which States must use to report caseload reduction information for fiscal year 2009 and thereafter.

BACKGROUND:

Section 407(b)(3) of the Social Security Act, as amended by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA), requires us to reduce a State’s required work participation rate for a fiscal year by the State’s caseload reduction credit for that fiscal year. The caseload reduction credit gives a State credit for reducing its caseload between a base year and a comparison year.

States submit data for the calculation of their caseload reduction credit by completing form ACF-202. Office of Management and Budget approval for the use of the ACF-202 expired on April 30, 2011. The form has now been renewed without change until July 31, 2014. ACTION: Caseload Reduction Reports for FY 2012 are due by December 31, 2011.

ATTACHMENTS:

Form ACF-202 and instructions for completing form ACF-202, with updated expiration date.

INQUIRIES:

Inquiries should be made to the appropriate ACF TANF Regional Program Manager.
