VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:13 Aug 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 H.R. 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 indepth 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 PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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. 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/ E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1

Project: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form--NEW

    In 2009 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the 
implementation of the SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) 
effort in all states. SOAR's primary objective is to improve the 
allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability 
benefits for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and 
who have serious mental illnesses. SOAR has three main components: 
strategic planning for systems change, training for case managers and 
ongoing technical assistance.
    During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/
SSDI applications through the process is stressed, since the process is 
complex and involves several steps. In response to requests from states 
implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center under SAMHSA's 
direction developed a web-based data form that case managers can use to 
track the progress of submitted applications, including
