Project: Participant Feedback on Training Under the Cooperative Agreement for Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program (OMB No. 0930–0195)— Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) intends to continue to conduct a multi-site assessment for the Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program. The education programs funded under this cooperative agreement are designed to disseminate knowledge of the psychological and neuropsychiatric sequelae of HIV/AIDS to both traditional (e.g., psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, primary care physicians, medical students, and social workers) and non-traditional (e.g., clergy, and alternative health care workers) first-line providers of mental health services, in particular to providers in minority communities. The multi-site assessment is designed to assess the effectiveness of particular training curricula, document the integrity of training delivery formats, and assess the effectiveness of the various training delivery formats. Responses per respondent Form Analyses will assist CMHS in documenting the numbers and types of traditional and non-traditional mental health providers accessing training; the content, nature and types of training participants receive; and the extent to which trainees experience knowledge, skill and attitude gains/changes as a result of training attendance. The multisite data collection design uses a twotiered data collection and analytic strategy to collect information on (1) the organization and delivery of training, and (2) the impact of training on participants’ knowledge, skills and abilities. Information about the organization and delivery of training will be collected from trainers and staff who are funded by these cooperative agreements/contracts, hence there is no respondent burden. All training participants will be asked to complete a brief feedback form at the end of the training session. CMHS anticipates funding 10 education sites for the Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program.

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-toface by the GPRA interviewer. 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. 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.

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 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.

[[Page 79012]]

    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.
