Title: Employment and Training Services for Noncustodial Parents in the Child Support Services Program 

In an effort to make the child support program more effective and to increase regular child support payments, the Office of Child Support Services will propose to allow child support agencies to strengthen supportive services for noncustodial parents.

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services(HHS)  Priority: Other Significant 
RIN Status: Previously published in the Unified Agenda Agenda Stage of Rulemaking: Proposed Rule Stage 
Major: No  Unfunded Mandates: No 
CFR Citation: 45 CFR part 302    45 CFR part 303    45 CFR part 304     (To search for a specific CFR, visit the Code of Federal Regulations.)
Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. sec. 1302   
Legal Deadline:  None

Statement of Need:

Currently, IV-D agencies have many enforcement tools to collect child support from noncustodial parents who are able to pay their child support, but these enforcement tools are less effective in collecting support from unemployed noncustodial parents. Many of these parents face significant barriers to employment and could benefit from employment and training services, but rarely receive them. This Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) would explore options for providing nonduplicative employment and training services to unemployed noncustodial parents, which will help them become employed and pay their child support.

Summary of the Legal Basis:

This NPRM is published under the authority granted to the Secretary of Health and Human Services by section 1102 of the Social Security Act (Act), 42 U.S.C. 1302.


There are no satisfactory alternatives to publishing this NPRM that provide improved child support program effectiveness.

Anticipated Costs and Benefits:

To Be Determined.
