The use of standard data definitions will reduce the data collection burden on grantees as these variables are collected through data collection procedures that currently exist through all publically funded child welfare and substance abuse treatment systems. The CAM–FTDC performance measures are data currently collected by programs as part of their normal operations (e.g., placement status in child welfare services, substance abuse treatment entry dates). Thus, no primary data collection from clients will be required as the grantees will be abstracting existing data. The information utilized for the North Carolina Family Assessment Scale rating is obtained Assessment Scale, and an interagency collaboration survey administered to CAM FTDC program staff. Exhibit 1 presents the estimated total cost burden associated with the collection of the CAM–FTDC data elements. The following estimates represent the minimum CAM–FTDC clients required to be served by the CAM–FTDC grantees (i.e., a minimum of 20 methamphetamine-using clients is required in order to have a sufficient number of participants in the program × 12 grantees). The identified respondent for the annualized hour burden for the child, parent/caregiver and family functioning elements is the grantee staff person who will extract data from CAM–FTDC client. For the interagency collaboration measure, the respondent is identified as a CAM–FTDC staff member. It is estimated that 10 CAM– FTDC staff members from each of the 12 grantees will complete the interagency collaboration measure.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 concerning 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, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Children Affected by Methamphetamine in Family Drug 
Treatment Court--NEW

    In 2010, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), 
provided funding to 12 existing Family Treatment Drug Courts (FTDCs) 
for enhancement and/or expansion of their FTDC's capabilities to 
provide psycho-social, emotional and mental health services to children 
(0-17 years) and their families who have methamphetamine use disorders 
and involvement in child protective services. This program was 
authorized in House Report 111-220 accompanying HR 3293 in 2010. The 
Committee language stated that ``these grants will support a 
collaborative approach, including treatment providers, child welfare 
specialists, and judges, to provide community-based social services for 
the children of methamphetamine-addicted parents,'' and were to be 
awarded to Family Dependency Treatment Drug Courts.
    The proposed data collection for the grantees, referred to as the 
Children Affected by Methamphetamine in Family Treatment Drug Court 
(CAM-FTDC) project, will provide knowledge about the services needed 
and provided to these and similar families. The data to be collected by 
the CAM-FTDC program is SAMHSA's first Federal data collection effort 
focused specifically on the needs of children whose parents have a 
substance use disorder and are participating in an FTDC and on 
effective strategies to address their needs. The information collected 
through the CAM-FTDC program will benefit SAMHSA by providing an in-
depth understanding of the needs of the children and families served by 
CAM-FTDC. Findings from this program will provide SAMHSA with valuable 
information regarding appropriate service interventions for this 
population and, ultimately, inform SAMHSA on how the agency can best 
meet the needs of future drug endangered children. The results from 
this data collection will serve to inform future decisions regarding 
funding by SAMHSA as well as establish an evidence base for the 
practices undertaken for other localities and programs implementing 
Family Treatment Drug Courts.

[[Page 33324]]

    The evaluation of the CAM-FTDC project will collect data on 
children, parents/caregivers, family functioning and interagency 
collaboration. The domains specified in the Request for Applications 
(RFA) are: (1) Child Outcomes; (2) Parent/Caregiver Outcomes; (3) 
Family Functioning; and, (4) Interagency Collaboration.
    To the greatest extent possible, the data elements are 
operationally defined using standard definitions in child welfare and 
substance abuse treatment. The use of standard data definitions will 
reduce the data collection burden on grantees as these variables are 
collected through data collection procedures that currently exist 
through all publically funded child welfare and substance abuse 
treatment systems. The CAM-FTDC performance measures are data currently 
collected by programs as part of their normal operations (e.g., 
placement status in child welfare services, substance abuse treatment 
entry dates). Thus, no primary data collection from clients will be 
required as the grantees will be abstracting existing data. The 
information utilized for the North Carolina Family Assessment Scale 
rating is obtained during the intake interview that sites engage in 
when determining program eligibility and suitability. If needed, the 
CAM FTDC staff member may supplement this information by obtaining 
information from other staff that interact with the client (i.e., the 
social worker familiar with the family) or during a home visit (if this 
is part of their program activities).
    It should be re-emphasized that the CAM-FTDC projects are 
expansions or enhancements of FTDC partnerships that currently have 
existing relationships (and information sharing/confidentiality 
agreements) in place. It is through this existing information sharing 
forum that the CAM grantees will be able to obtain the requisite child 
welfare and substance abuse treatment performance measures.
    The grantees will use electronic abstraction and secondary data 
collection for elements that are already being collected by counties 
and States in their reporting requirements of Federally-mandated data. 
There are five data sources that will be used to collect and report the 
performance measures: Two Federal child welfare data sets, a Federal 
substance abuse treatment data set, the North Carolina Family 
Assessment Scale, and an interagency collaboration survey administered 
to CAM FTDC program staff.
    Exhibit 1 presents the estimated total cost burden associated with 
the collection of the CAM-FTDC data elements. The following estimates 
represent the minimum CAM-FTDC clients required to be served by the 
CAM-FTDC grantees (i.e., a minimum of 20 methamphetamine-using clients 
is required in order to have a sufficient number of participants in the 
program x 12 grantees). The identified respondent for the annualized 
hour burden for the child, parent/caregiver and family functioning 
elements is the grantee staff person who will extract data from CAM-
FTDC client. For the interagency collaboration measure, the respondent 
is identified as a CAM-FTDC staff member. It is estimated that 10 CAM-
FTDC staff members from each of the 12 grantees will complete the 
interagency collaboration measure. The estimated total cost of the time 
that will be spent completing data collection is $18,400 (total number 
of respondent hours x $18.40, the estimated average hourly wages for 
adults as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010).
