June 2 -- The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is requesting the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the Current Population Survey-Child Support Supplement (CPS-CSS), with minor revisions, for an additional three years. Public comments to OMB are invited by July 5, 2022.

The CPS-CSS collects detailed information on support agreements and awards, including both required payments and amounts received, as well as data about the socioeconomic characteristics of custodial parents and their families. Data collected pertaining to child support, and the subsequent analysis of survey data, will assist legislators and policymakers in determining the efficacy of various child support legislation. Minor changes are being proposed for the 2023 information collection.
