Proposed Project: ``Health Care and Other Facilities'' Construction 
Program: Web-Based Status Reporting Form: (OMB No. 0915-0309)--
[Extension]

    The Health Resources and Services Administration's Health Care and 
Other Facilities (HCOF) Construction Program provides congressional 
directed funds to health facilities for construction-related activities 
and/or capital equipment purchases. Awarded facilities are required to 
provide HRSA with a periodic (quarterly for construction-related 
projects, annually for equipment only projects) update of the status of 
the funded project until it is completed. The monitoring period 
averages about 3 years, although some projects take up to 5 years to 
complete. The information collected from these updates is vital to 
program management staff to determine whether projects are progressing 
according to the established timeframes, meeting deadlines established 
in the Notice of Grant Award (NGA), drawing down funds appropriately. 
The data collected from the updates is also shared with the Division of 
Grants Management Operations (DGMO), which assists in the overall 
evaluation of each project's progress. A Web-based form has been 
developed for progress reporting for the HCOF program. This form will 
allow awardees the ability to directly input the required status update 
information in a timely, consistent, and uniform manner. The Web-based 
form will minimize burden to respondents and will inform respondents 
when there are missing data elements prior to submission.
    The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
