The following request has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Proposed Project: Rural Health Community-Based Grant Program (OMB No. 0915–0319)—[Revision] On May 20, 2008, OMB approved the agency’s request for the collection of data related to OMB No. 0915–0319 and set an expiration date of May 31, 2011. The agency is now proceeding to submit a revised package which will include program specific measures that grantees will have to collect and report on. The revisions will include measures that are aligned with the agency’s updated clinical measures. There are currently six rural health grant programs that operate under the authority of Section 301 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. These programs include: (1) Rural Health Care Services Outreach Grant Program (Outreach); (2) Rural Health Network Development Grant Program (Network Development); (3) Small Healthcare Provider Quality Grant Number of respondents Grant program Frequency of responses Program (Quality); (4) Delta States Rural Development Network Grant Program (Delta); (5) Rural Health Network Planning Grant Program (Network Planning) and; (6) Rural Health Workforce Development Grant Program (Workforce). These grants are to provide expanded delivery of health care services in rural areas, for the planning and implementation of integrated health care networks in rural areas, and for the planning and implementation quality improvement and workforce activities. For these programs, performance measures were drafted to provide data useful to the programs and to enable HRSA to provide aggregate program data required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993. These measures cover the principal topic areas of interest to ORHP, including: (a) Access to care; (b) the underinsured and uninsured; (c) workforce recruitment and retention; (d) sustainability; (e) health information technology; (f) network development; and, (g) health related clinical measures. Several measures will be used for all six programs. All measures will speak to the Office of Rural Health Policy’s progress toward meeting its goals.
