Questions regarding perception of care and treatment coercion will be selfadministered by participating clients and returned to the interviewer in a sealed envelope to be included in the full package mailed to the cross-site evaluation coordinating center by the interviewer. Client participation is voluntary; non-cash incentives will be given at baseline worth a $10 value and at 6-month follow-up worth a $25 value. Clients will be assigned unique identifiers by local projects; responses will be recorded on a fill-in-the-bubble answer sheet, mailed by the grantee project to the cross-site evaluation coordinating center, and scanned into a secure dataset. This process will eliminate the need for data entry, reduce cost and data entry error, and ensure confidentiality for cross-site data.

opportunity for public comment on proposed collections of information, 
the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 
will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects. To request more 
information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the 
information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer 
on (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions 
of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality,

Proposed Project: Cross-Site Evaluation for the Benefit of Homeless 
Individuals (GBHI)--NEW

    SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is conducting 
a cross-site external evaluation of the impact of the Grants for the 
Benefit of Homeless Individuals (GBHI) program. GBHI is a Targeted 
Capacity Expansion grant program that links substance abuse and mental 
health treatment with housing and other needed services and expands and 
strengthens these services for people with substance use and co-
occurring mental health problems who are homeless. The national cross-
site evaluation will assess the effectiveness, efficiency and 
sustainability of the GBHI project services for client abstinence, 
housing stability, homelessness, and related employment, criminal 
justice and services outcomes, as well as lessons learned to inform 
future efforts.
    The CSAT GBHI Client Interview--Baseline and the CSAT GBHI Client 
Interview--6-Month Follow-up have been developed to assess program 
impact on client outcomes based on review of the literature and 
consultation with a panel of national experts, GBHI grantees and 
SAMHSA. The CSAT GBHI Client Interview is composed of questions unique 
from the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Tool that 
measure the outcomes of interest and subpopulations of focus: 
homelessness, housing, treatment history, readiness to change, trauma 
symptoms, housing and treatment choice, burden and satisfaction, 
military service, employment, and criminal justice involvement. 
Immediately following the SAMHSA-required administration of the GPRA 
CSAT Discretionary Services Client Level Tool, which is completed by 
enrolled accepted clients for each grantee project at baseline and 6-
month follow-up, the paper and pencil CSAT GBHI Client Interview will 
be administered face-to-face by the GPRA interviewer. Questions 
regarding perception of care and treatment coercion will be self-
administered by participating clients and returned to the interviewer 
in a sealed envelope to be included in the full package mailed to the 
cross-site evaluation coordinating center by the interviewer. Client 
participation is voluntary; non-cash incentives will be given at 
baseline worth a $10 value and at 6-month follow-up worth a $25 value. 
Clients will be assigned unique identifiers by local projects; 
responses will be recorded on a fill-in-the-bubble answer sheet, mailed 
by the grantee project to the cross-site evaluation coordinating 
center, and scanned into a secure dataset. This process will eliminate 
the need for data entry, reduce cost and data entry error, and ensure 
confidentiality for cross-site data.
    The CSAT GBHI Stakeholder Survey will be conducted with GBHI 
program stakeholders via a web survey to assess the types of 
stakeholder partnerships involved in the GBHI program and the barriers 
and strategies developed to overcome barriers to facilitate the 
implementation and sustainability of project activities under the GBHI 
program. Each survey respondent will be issued a username and password 
to login to and complete the secure web-based survey. The web-based 
survey format will reduce burden on the respondent and minimize 
potential for measurement error.
