Proposed Project: Data Collection Tool for State Offices of Rural 
Health Grant Program: (New)

    The mission of the Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) is to 
sustain and improve access to quality care services for rural 
communities. In its authorizing language (Sec. 711 of the Social 
Security Act [42 U.S.C. 912]), Congress charged ORHP with administering 
grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts to provide technical 
assistance and other activities as necessary to support activities 
related to improving health care in rural areas.
    In accordance with the Public Health Service Act, section 338J, 42 
U.S.C. 254r, HRSA proposes to revise the State Offices of Rural Health 
Grant Program--Guidance and Forms for the Application. The guidance is 
used annually by 50 States in writing applications for grants under the 
State Offices of Rural Health Grant Program (SORH) and in preparing the 
required report.
    ORHP seeks to expand the information gathered from grantees on 
their efforts to provide technical assistance to clients within their 
State. SORH grantees would be required to submit a Technical Assistance 
Report that includes: (1) The total number of technical assistance 
encounters provided directly by the grantee; and, (2) the total number 
of clients that received direct technical assistance from the grantee. 
Submission of the Technical Assistance Report would be done via e-mail 
to ORHP no later than 30 days after the end of each twelve-month budget 
period.
    The estimated average annual burden is as follows:
