In addition, SAMHSA has incorporated recommendations from the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) and their member States in the revisions and clarification of data reporting requirements and instructions. During the negotiations with the States resulting in agreement on the National Outcome Measures (NOMs) for substance abuse treatment and prevention, SAMHSA pledged to the States to: 1. Reduce respondent burden; 2. work with the States to improve performance management of the SAPT Block Grant; 3. improve the availability, timeliness, and quality of data available to Federal, State, and provider administrators of block grant funded programs. This revision of the Uniform Application and Regulation for the SAPT Block Grant takes initial steps toward implementing these commitments. Individual States may reduce their respondent burden by selecting the option of using SAMHSA pre-populated tables for Section IVa and b. The data for these tables would be drawn from SAMHSA data sets known as Drug and Alcohol Services Information System (DASIS) Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) and National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) by SAMHSA and provided to the States. SAMHSA is providing the States with the option of reporting on prevention expenditures utilizing the six prevention strategies or utilizing the Institute of Medicine classification of E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1

Proposed Project: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services 
Waiver Application Requirements (NEW)

    Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by 
the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006 (Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Program) requires that grantees expend 75 percent of Parts A, 
B, and C funds on core medical services, including antiretroviral 
drugs, for individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under the 
legislation, effective Fiscal Year (FY) 2007. In order for grantees 
under Parts A, B, and C to be exempted from the 75 percent core medical 
services requirement, they must request and receive a waiver from HRSA, 
as required in the Act. HRSA has developed a process for waiver request 
submission, review, and notification. The core medical services waiver 
uniform standard and waiver request process will apply to Ryan White 
HIV/AIDS Program grant awards under Parts A, B, and C of Title XXVI of 
the PHS Act beginning FY 2008. Core medical services waivers will be 
effective for a one-year period consistent with the grant award period.
    Grantees must submit a waiver request with the annual grant 
application containing the following certifications and documentations 
which will be utilized by HRSA in making determinations regarding 
waiver requests. The waiver must include:
    1. Certification from the Part B state grantee that there are no 
current or anticipated ADAP services waiting lists in the state for the 
year in which such waiver request is made. This certification must also 
specify that there are no waiting lists for a particular core class of 
antiretroviral therapeutics established by the Secretary, e.g., fusion 
inhibitors;
    2. Certification that all core medical services listed in the 
statute (Part A section 2604(c)(3), Part B section

[[Page 36010]]

2612(b)(3), and Part C section 2651(c)(3)), regardless of whether such 
services are funded by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, are available 
within 30 days for all identified and eligible individuals with HIV/
AIDS in the service area;
    3. Evidence that a public process was conducted to seek public 
input on availability of core medical services;
    4. Evidence that receipt of the core medical services waiver is 
consistent with the grantee's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program application 
(e.g., ``Description of Priority Setting and Resource Allocation 
Processes'' and ``Unmet Need Estimate and Assessment'' sections of the 
application for Parts A, ``Needs Assessment and Unmet Need'' section of 
the application under Part B, and ``Description of the Local HIV 
Service Delivery System,'' and ``Current and Projected Sources of 
Funding'' sections of the application under Part C).
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
