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 × 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 × $18.40, the estimated average hourly wages for adults as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010).

Craig Fugate, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, under Executive Order 12148, as follows: I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of North Dakota resulting from flooding during the period of February 14 to July 20, 2011, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special cost sharing arrangements are warranted regarding Federal funds provided under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (‘‘the Stafford Act’’). Therefore, I amend my declaration of May 10, 2011, to authorize Federal funds for Public Assistance at 90 percent of total eligible costs. This adjustment to State, Tribal, and local government cost sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs eligible for such adjustments under the law. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (Section 404). These funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible costs.

Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information 
collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork

Project: Triennial Evaluation of the Projects for Assistance in 
Transition From Homelessness (PATH)--NEW

    The Center for Mental Health Services awards grants each fiscal 
year to each of the States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth 
of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands from allotments authorized 
under the PATH program established by Public Law 101-645, 42 U.S.C. 
290cc-21 et seq., the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance 
Amendments Act of 1990 (section 521 et seq. of the Public Health 
Service (PHS) Act). Section 522 of the PHS Act requires that the 
grantee States and Territories must expend their payments under the Act 
solely for making grants to political subdivisions of the State, and to 
nonprofit private entities (including community-based veterans' 
organizations and other community organizations) for the purpose of 
providing services specified in the Act. Available funding is allotted 
in accordance with the formula provision of section 524 of the PHS Act.
    This submission is for a collection of contextual, process, and 
outcome information to evaluate the national PATH program. Section 528 
of the PHS Act specifies that the Administrator of the Substance Abuse 
and Mental Health Services Administration shall evaluate at least once 
every 3 years the expenditures of grants under this part by eligible 
entities in order to ensure that expenditures are consistent with the 
provisions of this part. The evaluation shall include recommendations 
regarding changes in program design or operations.
    The proposed data collection includes:
     Interviews with 10 State Path Contacts (SPCs) and an 
online survey with all 56 SPCs to gather more information on how States 
plan, solicit, and monitor local providers using PATH funding; the 
challenges faced in their operating environment, in working with the 
populations they serve, and the environment in which they work; 
remaining gaps and needs as well as possible solutions and

[[Page 51047]]

recommendations for bridging gaps and filling needs and improving PATH 
efficiency and effectiveness.
     Interviews with 20-60 local providers and an online survey 
with 1 representative who provides face-to-face, PATH-funded services 
to clients selected randomly from each local service provider (n = 
483). Like SPC interviews and online surveys, the focus of this part of 
the data collection effort will be on assessing local providers' views 
on the challenges faced in their operating environment, in working with 
the populations they serve and the environment in which they work; on 
training received and needed; reporting requirements and burden; 
remaining gaps and needs and possible solutions and recommendations for 
bridging gaps and filling needs and improving PATH efficiency and 
effectiveness.
     Focus groups with 8-12 consumers that will be conducted on 
location at each of the 10 PATH locations selected for site visitation. 
The focus groups will assess clients' knowledge of PATH; the types of 
services they receive; satisfaction with services received; perceived 
needs that are not being met; and recommendations to improve service 
access, delivery, and comprehensiveness.
    The estimated total burden for the reporting requirements for the 
triennial PATH evaluation is summarized in the table below.
