Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 791-792 [07-14]

Download as PDF 791 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 4 / Monday, January 8, 2007 / Notices assessment into the programs. ORR is requesting renewal of OMB clearance for a survey of refugees that is collecting data on refugees’ employment and earnings outcomes. Survey interviews began in July 2006, and are still ongoing. The survey is being conducted in three cities: Houston, Miami, and Sacramento. The survey relies on a mixed-mode data collection method that involves both telephone and in-person interviews. If individuals cannot be reached by phone, an attempt is made to contact them in person. Three hundred refugees from a randomly selected sample in each site will complete the survey, for a total of 900 refugees. While locating and interviewing this population was expected to be difficult due to their high mobility, achieving the goal of 900 complete responses needed for reliable analysis, while maintaining reasonable response rates, has proven more time-consuming than expected. As of December 1, 2006, 547 refugees have already completed the survey, and approximately 64 more completions are expected in 2006, meaning that about 289 interviews would occur in 2007. Consequently, ORR is requesting clearance to continue the survey into 2007. Respondents: Refugees and related populations that qualify for RSS/TAG services who entered the United States between October 1999 and September 2004.

OMB No. 0970–0276. Description: The Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ Demonstration and Evaluation Project (HtE) seeks to learn what works in this area to date and is explicitly designed to build on past research by rigorously testing a wide variety of approaches to promote employment and improve family functioning and child well-being. The HtE project is designed to help Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients, former TANF recipients, or low-income parents who are hard-to-employ. The project is sponsored by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Number of responses per respondent Average burden hours per response 1 0.75 Total burden hours 217 The evaluation involves an experimental, random assignment design in four sites, testing a diverse set of strategies to promote employment for low-income parents who face serious obstacles to employment. The four include: (1) Intensive care management to facilitate the use of evidence-based treatment for major depression among parents receiving Medicaid in Rhode Island; (2) job readiness training, worksite placements, job coaching, job development and other training opportunities for recent parolees in New York City; (3) pre-employment services and transitional employment for longterm TANF participants in Philadelphia; and (4) home- and center-based care, enhanced with self-sufficiency services, for low-income families who have young children or are expecting in Kansas and Missouri. Materials for follow-up surveys for each of these sites were previously submitted to OMB and were approved. The purpose of this submission is to add physiological measures to the follow-up effort to the Rhode Island study. Respondents: The respondents to this component of the Rhode Island followup survey will be low-income parents and their children from the Rhode Island site currently participating in the HtE Project. As described in the prior OMB submission, these parents are Medicaid recipients between the ages of 18 and 45 receiving Medicaid through the managed care provider United Behavioral Health (UBH) in Rhode Island who meet study criteria with regard to their risk for depression. Children are the biological, adopted, and step-children of these parents, between the ages of 1 and 18 years of age.

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing an opportunity for public comment on the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Jan 05, 2007 Jkt 211001 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. ‘‘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.

To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: DHHS/ACF/ASPE/DOL Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ 
Demonstration and Evaluation: Rhode Island 15-Month Survey Amendment.
    OMB No. 0970-0276.
    Description: The Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ 
Demonstration and Evaluation Project (HtE) seeks to learn what works in 
this area to date and is explicitly designed to build on past research 
by rigorously testing a wide variety of approaches to promote 
employment and improve family functioning and child well-being. The HtE 
project is designed to help Temporary Assistance for Needy Families 
(TANF) recipients, former TANF recipients, or low-income parents who 
are hard-to-employ. The project is sponsored by the Office of Planning, 
Research and Evaluation (OPRE) of the Administration for Children and 
Families (ACF), the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and 
Evaluation (ASPE) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS), and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
    The evaluation involves an experimental, random assignment design 
in four sites, testing a diverse set of strategies to promote 
employment for low-income parents who face serious obstacles to 
employment. The four include: (1) Intensive care management to 
facilitate the use of evidence-based treatment for major depression 
among parents receiving Medicaid in Rhode Island; (2) job readiness 
training, worksite placements, job coaching, job development and other 
training opportunities for recent parolees in New York City; (3) pre-
employment services and transitional employment for long-term TANF 
participants in Philadelphia; and (4) home- and center-based care, 
enhanced with self-sufficiency services, for low-income families who 
have young children or are expecting in Kansas and Missouri.
    Materials for follow-up surveys for each of these sites were 
previously submitted to OMB and were approved. The purpose of this 
submission is to add physiological measures to the follow-up effort to 
the Rhode Island study.
    Respondents: The respondents to this component of the Rhode Island 
follow-up survey will be low-income parents and their children from the 
Rhode Island site currently participating in the HtE Project. As 
described in the prior OMB submission, these parents are Medicaid 
recipients between the ages of 18 and 45 receiving Medicaid through the 
managed care provider United Behavioral Health (UBH) in Rhode Island 
who meet study criteria with regard to their risk for depression. 
Children are the biological, adopted, and step-children of these 
parents, between the ages of 1 and 18 years of age.
