1995:

Proposed Project: Maternal and Child Health Services Title V Block 
Grant Program Guidance and Forms for the Title V Application/Annual 
Report (OMB No. 0915-0172)--[Revision]

    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) proposes to 
revise the Maternal and Child Health Services Title V Block Grant 
Program--Guidance and Forms for the Application/Annual Report. The 
guidance is used annually by the 50 States and 9 jurisdictions during 
both the creation of applications for Block Grants (under Title V of 
the Social Security Act) and in the preparation of the required annual 
report. The proposed revisions follow and build on extensive 
consultation received from a workgroup convened to provide suggestions 
to improve the guidance and forms.
    The changes in this edition of the Maternal and Child Health 
Services Title V Block Grant Program Guidance and Forms for the Title V 
Application/Annual Report include the following proposed revisions: (1) 
The requirements for reporting on the health status indicators and 
health systems capacity indicators were rewritten to reduce the 
reporting burden to the States; (2) the instructions for completing 
Form 7, ``Number of Individuals Served,'' have been clarified to assist 
States in more accurately estimating the number of individuals who 
receive Title V services; and (3) the detail sheets for the performance 
measures, outcome measures, health systems capacity indicators and 
health status indicators have been updated with corresponding Healthy 
People 2020 Objectives. In addition, efficiencies through use of the 
electronic application are identified for States to reduce their 
efforts in completing the application.
    The annual estimate of burden is as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                     Number of     Responses per       Total        Hours  per     Total burden
