More detailed information can be found in each collection’s supporting statement and associated materials (see ADDRESSES). CMS–10371 Cooperative Agreements To Support Establishment of StateOperated Health Insurance Exchanges CMS–10507 State-Based Marketplace Annual Reporting Tool (SMART) Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520), federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. The term ‘‘collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA requires federal agencies to publish a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension or reinstatement of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Information Collection 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of an existing information collection requirement; Title of Information Collection: Cooperative Agreements to Support Establishment of State-Operated Health Insurance Exchanges; Use: All States (including the 50 States, consortia of States, and the District of Columbia herein referred to as States) had the opportunity under Section 1311(b) of the Affordable Care to apply for three types of grants: (1) Planning grants; (2) Early Innovator grants for early development of information technology; and (3) Establishment grants to develop, implement and start-up Marketplaces. As of January 1st, 2017, the Secretary has disbursed over $5.4 billion under this grant program and, as of that date, there were 19 active establishment grants awarded to 12 states. As the State-Based Marketplaces (SBM) and Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) have matured and moved from the developmental phases to fulloperation, the reporting requirements for the states have been modified and streamlined to insure only information VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:15 May 18, 2017 Jkt 241001 necessary to provide effective oversight of their operations by CMS is collected. Given the innovative nature of Exchanges and the statutorilyprescribed relationship between the Secretary and States in their development and operation, it is critical that the Secretary work closely with States to provide necessary guidance and technical assistance to ensure that States can meet the prescribed timelines, federal requirements, and goals of the statute and the grants awarded to them.

L.) 114–10) created the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) and authorized the Secretary of HHS (in Section 511(h)(2)(A)) to award grants to Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations to conduct an early childhood home visiting program, through 3 percent of the total MIECHV program appropriation (authorized in Section 511(j)) for grants to tribal entities. The implementation of the program is a collaborative endeavor between Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). HRSA administers the State MIECHV program while ACF administers the Tribal MIECHV program. The goal of the Tribal MIECHV program is to support the development of happy, healthy, and successful American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) children and families through a coordinated home visiting system. Tribal MIECHV grants, to the greatest extent practicable, are to be consistent with the requirements of the MIECHV grants to states and jurisdictions (authorized in Section 511(c)), and include conducting a needs assessment and establishing quantifiable, measurable benchmarks. Specifically, the MIECHV legislation requires State and Tribal MIECHV grantees to collect data to measure improvements for eligible families in six specified areas (referred to as ‘‘benchmark areas’’) that encompass the major goals for the program and are listed below: 1. Improved maternal and newborn health 2. Prevention of child injuries, child abuse, neglect, or maltreatment, and reduction in emergency department visits 3. Improvement in school readiness and achievement E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1 23009 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 96 / Friday, May 19, 2017 / Notices 4. Reduction in crime or domestic violence 5. Improvement in family economic selfsufficiency 6. Improvement in the coordination and referrals for other community resources and supports As part of their implementation plans, Tribal MIECHV grantees are required to propose a plan for meeting the benchmark requirements specified in the legislation and must report data annually to HHS, with improvement assessed at the end of Year 4 and Year 5 of their 5-year grants, (i.e. after 3 years of implementation and at the end of their 5-year grant). The Tribal HV Form 2 will be used by Tribal MIECHV grantees to begin collecting performance data in October 2017 (pending approval of their benchmark plans) and then reporting performance data starting in October 2018, pending OMB approval. The Tribal HV Form 2 is new to the MIECHV Program information system and is remotely similar to the currentlyapproved Tribal HV Form 3 (OMB #0915–0357). The creation of Tribal HV Form 2 is due to the added level of specificity and revised performance reporting requirements for grantees to report benchmarks data. Specifically, ACF will use the proposed Tribal HV Form 2 to: • Track and improve the quality of benchmark measure data submitted by the Tribal MIECHV grantees; • Improve program monitoring and oversight; and • Ensure adequate and timely reporting of program data to relevant federal agencies and stakeholders including the Congress, and members of the public. Tribal HV Form 2 will provide a template for Tribal MIECHV grantees to report data on their progress under the six benchmark areas. Overall, this information collection will provide valuable information to HHS that will guide understanding of Tribal MIECHV grantees and the provision of technical assistance.
