L. 104–13), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) publishes periodic summaries of proposed projects being developed for submission to the Office of Management well as other sources of support to provide AIDS medication treatment, eligibility requirements, cost data, and coordination with Medicaid; however, aggregate data cannot be analyzed with the detail that is required to assess quality of care or to sufficiently account for the use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Funds. To address this limitation, HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is developing a client-level data system for ADAP grantees called the ADAP Data Report (ADR). The ADR consists of a grantee report and a client-level data file that will be submitted once every six months. Data collected through the ADR: Will enable HAB to answer specific questions about the utility of ADAP; will more precisely address program needs; and will monitor program performance. Discussions were held with nine volunteer grantee agencies representing a variety of ADAP models, as a basis for the burden estimates for the ADR that are included. These burden estimates are presented in two tables. The first table represents the estimated burden for the first year, including the estimated time to adjust existing or develop new data collection systems to collect the elements that HAB is requesting. In the first year, grantees will be required to report the grantee and client reports twice. Therefore, the total number of grantees (57) is multiplied by the total number of times that each grantee must submit the specified report (2) to arrive at the total responses in a one year period (114). This total is multiplied by the number of hours to complete each report for each six month submission to calculate the total burden hours.

The following request has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Proposed Project: Supplemental Information Request for the Submission of the Updated State Plan for the Home Visiting Program (OMB No. 0915– 0336)—[Extension] On March 23, 2010, the President signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–148), historic and transformative legislation designed to enhance disease prevention, strengthen the health care workforce, and make quality, affordable health care available to all Americans. Through a provision authorizing the creation of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, (http://frwebgate.access. gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111 _cong_bills&docid=f:h3590enr.txt.pdf, pages 216–225), the Act responds to the diverse needs of children and families in communities at risk and provides an unprecedented opportunity for collaboration and partnership at the federal, state, and community levels to improve health and development outcomes for at-risk children through evidence-based home visiting programs. The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program is designed: (1) To strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V; (2) to improve coordination of services for at-risk communities; and (3) to identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for families who reside in at-risk communities. To achieve the legislative requirements of the MIECHV program, the following application steps were required for release of grant funding: The first step was submission of an application for funding: The HRSA Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), HRSA–10–275, was issued on June 10, 2010, and state applications Number of respondents Instrument Section 1: Identification of the State’s Targeted At-Risk Community(ies) ................................................................

These applications were to include plans for completing the required statewide needs assessment to identify at-risk communities, submission of which was also a condition for receiving FY 2011 Title V Block Grant allotments (the completed needs assessments were due in September 2010) and initial State plans for developing the program in order to meet the criteria identified in the legislation (Section 511(b)(3)(B)). The second step was submission of a statewide needs assessment. On September 20, 2010, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories submitted needs assessments, which were approved by HRSA, and all 56 grantees have therefore received FY 2011 Title V Block Grant funds. The third step, as a condition of receiving the remaining grant funding, was submission of an Updated State Plan for a State Home Visiting Program. The information requested for the Updated State Plan is intended to help states in achieving the MIECHV Program requirements by viewing their proposed State Home Visiting Program as a service strategy aimed at developing a comprehensive, high-quality early childhood system that promotes maternal, infant, and early childhood health, safety and development, and strong parent-child relationships in the targeted community(ies) at risk. Ultimately, the information provided will help states develop a comprehensive plan that addresses community risk factors, builds on strengths identified in the targeted community(ies), and responds to the specific characteristics and needs of families in each of these communities.

Proposed Project: ADAP Data Report--[NEW]

    HRSA's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is funded through The 
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, Part B, Title XXVI of the Public Health 
Service Act, which provides grants to states and territories. ADAP 
provides medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Program funds may 
also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible clients and for 
services that enhance access, adherence, and monitoring of drug 
treatments.
    Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 
several territories receive ADAP grants. As part of the funding 
requirements, ADAP grantees currently submit quarterly reports 
concerning aggregate information on patients served, pharmaceuticals 
prescribed, pricing, as well as other sources of support to provide 
AIDS medication treatment, eligibility requirements, cost data, and 
coordination with Medicaid; however, aggregate data cannot be analyzed 
with the detail that is required to assess quality of care or to 
sufficiently account for the use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Funds.
    To address this limitation, HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is 
developing a client-level data system for ADAP grantees called the ADAP 
Data Report (ADR). The ADR consists of a grantee report and a client-
level data file that will be submitted once every six months. Data 
collected through the ADR: Will enable HAB to answer specific questions 
about the utility of ADAP; will more precisely address program needs; 
and will monitor program performance.
    Discussions were held with nine volunteer grantee agencies 
representing a variety of ADAP models, as a basis for the burden 
estimates for the ADR that are included. These burden estimates are 
presented in two tables. The first table represents the estimated 
burden for the first year, including the estimated time to adjust 
existing or develop new data collection systems to collect the elements 
that HAB is requesting. In the first year, grantees will be required to 
report the grantee and client reports twice. Therefore, the total 
number of grantees (57) is multiplied by the total number of times that 
each grantee must submit the specified report (2) to arrive at the 
total responses in a one year period (114). This total is multiplied by 
the number of hours to complete each report for each six month 
submission to calculate the total burden hours.

    The second table represents the estimated burden for subsequent 
years. Given that data collection system updates only impact the first 
six month reporting period, it is not included in the subsequent years' 
total burden. The grantee report burden remains unchanged, as the 
submission is consistent with current reporting requirements. The 
client report burden will decrease slightly in subsequent years as 
grantees become more proficient with reporting client level data, based 
on feedback they receive, as well as technical assistance resources 
that HRSA will provide.
