Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46181 information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: Drug Abuse Warning Network (OMB No. 0930–0078)— Revision. The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) is an ongoing data system that collects information on drug-related medical emergencies as reported from about 350 hospitals nationwide, and drug-related deaths as reported from 6 states and 135 medical examiners/ coroner jurisdictions (ME/C) in 35 metropolitan areas. DAWN provides national and metropolitan estimates of substances involved with drug-related emergency department (ED) visits; disseminates information about substances involved in deaths investigated by participating medical examiners and coroners (ME/Cs); tracks drug abuse patterns, trends, and the emergence of new substances; monitors post-market adverse drug incidents; assesses health hazards associated with the use of illicit, prescription, and overthe-counter drugs; and generates information for national and local drug abuse policy and program planning. DAWN data are used by Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as universities, pharmaceutical companies, and the media. From 2006 to 2008, DAWN will continue to recruit hospitals in the 13 oversampled metropolitan areas in order to improve the precision of estimates, adding approximately 18 hospitals to the sample. In 2007 and 2008, DAWN plans to recruit approximately 20 more ME/Cs from metropolitan areas that are currently profiled by DAWN, but have incomplete participation. DAWN data are submitted electronically, using eHERS (electronic Hospital Emergency Reporting System) and eMERS (electronic Medical Examiner Reporting System). DAWN proposes that all facilities (EDs and ME/Cs) will start using the revised electronic forms for all events occurring from 1/1/2006 forward. The annual burden estimates are shown below: E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1

ACTION: Notice of public comment on the proposed Noncompetitive Single 
Source Program expansion supplement to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society 
(HIAS).

    CFDA#: The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 
for this program is 93.576. The title is the Refugee Family 
Enrichment Program.

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that it has been proposed that a 
noncompetitive single-source program expansion supplement to an ongoing 
competitive award be made to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) in 
response to an unsolicited application. This application proposes to 
provide additional training and technical assistance to organizations 
implementing Refugee Marriage Enrichment projects. The application is 
not within the scope of any existing or expected to be issued program 
announcement for the Fiscal Year 2006. HIAS's application is expected 
to address issues critical to the development and implementation of 
marriage education programs for refugees by providing valuable on-site 
training and technical assistance to grantees and sub-grantees that 
offer marital communication training to refugee couples.
    In September of 2003, ORR awarded HIAS a grant of $200,000 to 
develop a Refugee Family Enrichment program which included technical 
assistance to subgrantees. Because of their success in the development 
of their marriage enrichment program, in 2004 HIAS was awarded a 
noncompetitive single source program expansion supplement to an ongoing 
competitive award to expand its Technical Assistance Services Program 
to Refugee Family Enrichment project sites specified by ORR. HIAS has 
since provided over 600 hours of technical assistance to project sites 
operated by organizations across the country. Their technical 
assistance primarily supports the work of small Mutual Assistance 
Associations, and without it, these agencies might struggle to provide 
refugee clients with the programs they need in order to achieve self 
sufficiency. The proposed project period is 9/30/2005-9/29/2006.
    Technical assistance to support grantees in developing better 
approaches to the delivery of services provided to refugees is 
authorized by section 412(c)(1)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality
