Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request 
a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the 
HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 443-1129.
    The following request has been submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995:
    Proposed Project: Maternal and Child Health Bureau Performance 
Measures for Discretionary Grants (OMB No. 0915-0298): Revision
    The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) intends to continue to 
collect performance data for Special Projects of Regional and National 
Significance (SPRANS), Community Integrated Service Systems (CISS), and 
other grant programs administered by MCHB.
    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) proposes to 
continue using reporting requirements for SPRANS projects, CISS 
projects, and other grant programs administered by MCHB, including 
national performance measures, previously approved by OMB, and in 
accordance with the ``Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 
1993'' (Pub. L. 103-62). This Act requires the establishment of 
measurable goals for Federal programs that can be reported as part of 
the budgetary process, thus linking funding decisions with performance. 
Performance measures for MCHB discretionary grants were initially 
approved in January 2003. Approval from OMB is being sought to continue 
the use of these measures. Some of these measures are specific to 
certain types of programs, and will not apply to all grantees. 
Furthermore, these measures are based primarily on existing data, 
thereby minimizing the response burden consistent with program 
administration and management needs. Through the experience of 
utilizing these measures, we are enhancing them to better reflect 
program goals.
    The estimated response burden is as follows:
