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.

Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). To request 
a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, e-mail 
paperwork@hrsa.gov or call the HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 
443-1129.
    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 were due to HRSA on July 9, 2010. 
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

states develop a comprehensive plan that addresses community risk
