Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 191 / Monday, October 3, 2011 / Notices behavior and immunological conduct of a variety of animal models. The NIH Animal Center at Poolesville conducts and supports research protocols for various Institutes and Centers, which includes the studies of animal behavior, conduct of immunologic procedures and sampling, and surgical investigation. Total building space on the campus amounts to approximately 364,507 gsf. Approximately 199 people work at the NIH Animal Center site. A Master Plan is an integrated series of documents that present in graphic, narrative, and tabular form the current composition of NIH campuses and the plan for their orderly and comprehensive development over a 20year period. The plan provides guidance in coordinating the physical development of NIH campuses, including building locations, utility capacities, road alignments, parking facilities, and the treatment of open spaces. General design guidelines are also used to provide detailed guidance for the placement and design of physical improvements. The proposed action is to develop a long-range physical master plan for the NIH Animal Center. The plan will cover a 20-year planning period and address the future development of the NIH Animal Center site, including placement of future construction; vehicular and pedestrian circulation on- and offcampus; parking within the property boundaries; open space in and around the campus; required setbacks; historic properties; natural and scenic resources; noise; and lighting. The plan will examine potential growth in the NIH Animal Center personnel, and consequent construction of space over the planning period. Future construction on the site could include such facilities as: new animal holding, research laboratories, and support facilities. In accordance with 40 CFR 1500–1508 and DHHS environmental procedures, NIH will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed master plan. The EIS will evaluate the impacts of the master plan should development occur as proposed. Among the items the EIS will examine are the implications of the master plan on community infrastructure, including, but not limited to, utilities, storm water management, traffic and transportation, and other public services. To ensure that the public is afforded the greatest opportunity to participate in the planning and environmental review process, the NIH is inviting oral and written comments on the master plan and related environmental issues. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Sep 30, 2011 Jkt 223001 The NIH will be sponsoring a public Scoping Meeting to provide individuals an opportunity to share their ideas on the master planning effort, including recommended alternatives and environmental issues the EIS should consider. The meeting is planned for 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on October 25, 2011 at the Town Hall Building at 19721 Beall Street, Poolesville, Maryland 20837. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. The NIH has established a 30-day public comment period for the scoping process. Scoping comments must be postmarked no later than November 18, 2011 to ensure they are considered. All comments and questions on the EIS should be directed to Valerie Nottingham at the address listed above, telephone 301–496–7775; fax 301–480–8056; or e-mail nihnepa@mail.nih.gov.

Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Project: Networking Suicide Prevention Hotlines—Evaluation of the Lifeline Policies for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk (NEW) This proposed project is a new data collection that builds on previously approved data collection activities [Evaluation of Networking Suicide Prevention Hotlines Follow–Up Assessment (OMB No. 0930–0274) and Call Monitoring of National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Form (OMB No. 0930–0275)]. This new data collection is an effort to advance the understanding of crisis hotline utilization and its impact. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61107 Mental Health Services (CMHS) funds a National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network (‘‘Lifeline’’), consisting of a toll-free telephone number that routes calls from anywhere in the United States to a network of local crisis centers. In turn, the local centers link callers to local emergency, mental health, and social service resources. The overarching purpose of the proposed Evaluation of the Lifeline Policies for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk is to implement data collection to evaluate hotline counselors’ management of imminent risk callers and third party callers concerned about persons at imminent risk, and counselor adherence to Lifeline Policies and Guidelines for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk of Suicide. Specifically, the Evaluation of the Lifeline Policies for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk will collect data, using an imminent risk form, to inform the network’s knowledge of the extent to which counselors are aware of and being guided by the Lifeline’s imminent risk guidelines; counselors’ definitions of imminent risk; the rates of active rescue of imminent risk callers; types of rescue; barriers to intervention; and the circumstances in which active rescue is initiated, including the caller’s agreement to receive the intervention. Clearance is being requested for one activity to assess the knowledge, actions, and practices of counselors to aid callers who are determined to be at imminent risk for suicide and who may require active rescue. This evaluation will allow researchers to examine and understand the actions taken by counselors to aid imminent risk callers, the need for active rescue, and, ultimately, to improve the delivery of crisis hotline services to imminent risk callers. A total of eight centers will participate in this evaluation. Thus, SAMHSA is requesting OMB review and approval of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline—Imminent Risk Form. This activity is distinct from the Crisis Center Survey data collection, which targets the entire network of crisis centers and focuses on a different domain of questions (specifically, the makeup, strengths, and needs of crisis centers.) The information gathered from the Crisis Center Survey cannot provide a profile of imminent risk callers or details about interventions with imminent risk or third party callers. Crisis counselors at eight participating centers will record information discussed with imminent risk callers on the Imminent Risk Form, which does not require direct data collection from callers. As with previously approved evaluations, callers will maintain E:\FR\FM\03OCN1.SGM 03OCN1 61108 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 191 / Monday, October 3, 2011 / Notices anonymity. Counselors will be asked to complete the form for 100% of imminent risk callers to the eight centers participating in the evaluation. This form requests information in 14 content areas, each with multiple subitems and response options. Response options include open-ended, yes/no, Likert-type ratings, and multiple choice/ check all that apply. The form also requests demographic information on the caller, the identification of the center and counselor submitting the form, and the date of the call. Specifically, the form is divided into the following sections: (1) Call type, (2) gender, (3) age, (4) suicidal desire, (5) suicidal intent, (6) suicidal capability, (7) buffers to suicide, (8) interventions agreed to by caller or implemented by counselor without consent, (9) whether imminent risk was reduced enough such that active rescue was not needed, (10) interventions for third party callers calling about a person at imminent risk, (11) if supervisory consultation occurred, (12) barriers to getting needed help to the person at imminent risk, (13) steps taken to confirm emergency contact was made with person at risk, and (14) steps taken when emergency contact was NOT made with person at risk. The form will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and may be completed by the counselor during or after the call. It is expected that a total of 1,440 forms will be completed by 360 counselors over the two-year data collection period. The estimated response burden to collect this information is annualized over the requested two-year clearance period and is presented below: TOTAL AND ANNUALIZED AVERAGES: RESPONDENTS, RESPONSES AND HOURS Instrument Number of respondents Responses/ respondent Total responses Hours per response Total hour burden National Suicide Prevention Lifeline—Imminent Risk Form 360 2 720 .25 180 Written comments and recommendations concerning the proposed information collection should be sent by November 2, 2011 to the SAMHSA Desk Officer at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Project: Cross-Site Evaluation of the Minority Substance Abuse/HIV Prevention Program—(OMB No. 0930– 0298)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the revision of data collection activities for the cross-site study of the Minority HIV/AIDS Initiative (MAI), which includes both youth and adult questionnaires. This revision includes the addition of 4 cohorts, changes to the data collection procedures based on intervention duration, and the addition of two questions on binge drinking behavior. The current approval is under OMB No. 0930–0298, which expires on 4/30/12. This cross-site evaluation supports two of SAMHSA’s 8 Strategic Initiatives: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness and Data, Outcomes, and Quality. It builds on six previous grant programs funded by SAMHSA’s CSAP to provide substance abuse and HIV prevention services for minority populations. The first two were planning grant programs and the last four were service grant programs. The goals for the Cohort 3–6 grants were to add, increase, or enhance integrated substance abuse (SA) and HIV prevention services by providing supportive services and strengthening linkages between service providers for at-risk minority populations. The HIV Cohort 1–3 previously received PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 clearance under OMB No. 0930–0208 and Cohort 6 grants previously received clearance under OMB No. 0930–0298. Since neither the HIV Cohort 4 nor the Cohort 5 Programs were cross-site studies, they did not require OMB clearance. The current HIV Minority SA/HIV Prevention Program funded: • Cohorts 7 and 8 Prevention of Substance Abuse (SA) and HIV for AtRisk Racial/Ethnic Minority Subpopulations Cooperative Agreements—60 grants for 5 years, • Cohort 9 Ready-To-Respond Initiative—35 grants for 5 years and, • Cohort 10 Capacity Building Initiative—27 grants for 5 years. Grantees are community based organizations that are required to address the SAMHSA Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) and participate in this cross-site evaluation. The grantees are expected to provide leadership and coordination on the planning and implementation of the SPF that targets minority populations, the minority reentry population, as well as other high risk groups residing in communities of color with high prevalence of SA and HIV/AIDS. The primary objectives of the cross-site study are to: (1) Determine the success of the MAI in preventing, delaying, and/ or reducing the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) among the target populations. The results of this cross-site study will assist SAMHSA/ CSAP in promoting and disseminating optimally effective prevention programs; (2) Measure the effectiveness of evidence-based programs and infrastructure development activities such as: outreach and training, mobilization of key stakeholders, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS E:\FR\FM\03OCN1.SGM 03OCN1

Project: Networking Suicide Prevention Hotlines--Evaluation of the 
Lifeline Policies for Helping Callers at Imminent Risk (NEW)

    This proposed project is a new data collection that builds on
