[FR Doc. 2011–29784 Filed 11–17–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4120–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: Regional Partnership Grant (RPG) Program Data Collection. OMB No.: 0970–0353. Description On September 30, 2007, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Children’s Bureau awarded multi-year grants to 53 regional partnerships grantees (RPGs) to improve the safety, permanency and well-being of children affected by methamphetamine or other substance abuse who have been removed or are at risk of removal from their home. The Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006, the authorizing legislation for the RPG program, required that a set of performance indicators be established to periodically assess the grantees’ outcomes. The legislation mandated that these performance indicators be developed through a consultative process involving ACF, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and representatives of the State or Tribal agencies who are members of the regional partnerships. The legislation also requires the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human services to submit annually to Congress a report that includes the performance indicators established under this grant program. The final set of RPG performance indicators was approved by ACF and disseminated to the funded grantees in January 2008. It includes a total of 23 indicators across four outcome domains: Child/youth (9 indicators), adult (7 indicators), family/relationship (5 indicators), and regional partnership/ service capacity (2 indicators). It also includes a core set of child and adult demographic elements that will provide important context needed to properly analyze, explain and understand the outcomes. No other national data collection measures these critical child, adult, family, and RPG outcomes specifically for these children and families. The data also will have significant implications for policy and program development for child wellbeing programs nationwide. The purpose of this request is to obtain OMB approval for an extension of the original three year request which was approved on March 31, 2009. Fortythree of the original 53 grantees were awarded for a five-year grant period, thus necessitating an extension of the original request in order to continue data collection for the remainder of the grant period. The first submission of RPG grantee data to the RPG data collection system occurred in December, 2008, and every six months thereafter. Data collection will be conducted for the fifth year of the grant period, ending September 30, 2012, with data submission by January 2013. Data collection may be extended for one year until January 2014 should grantees request and be granted no-cost extensions. To minimize grantee data collection and reporting burden, many of the data elements are already being collected by counties and States in order to report Federally-mandated data to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS), the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) and the National Outcome Measures (NOMs); in addition, all States voluntarily submit data for the Federal National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS). Therefore, most child welfare data elements included in the RPG performance measures can be found in a State’s automated case management system, which is often a Federally-funded Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS). TEDS admission and discharge data are collected by State substance abuse agencies according to their own information systems for monitoring substance abuse treatment admissions and transmitted monthly or quarterly to the SAMHSA contractor. As a result of prior Federal government reporting requirements, States are already collecting several data elements needed by the RPGs. The RPGs lead agency or their state or local partners are able to download information from these existing State child welfare and substance abuse treatment data systems to obtain data to monitor their RPG program outcomes, thereby reducing the amount of primary data collection needed.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Regional Partnership Grant (RPG) Program Data Collection.
    OMB No.: 0970-0353.

Description

    On September 30, 2007, the Administration for Children and Families 
(ACF), Children's Bureau awarded multi-year grants to 53 regional 
partnerships grantees (RPGs) to improve the safety, permanency and 
well-being of children affected by methamphetamine or other substance 
abuse who have been removed or are at risk of removal from their home. 
The Child and Family Services Improvement Act of 2006, the authorizing 
legislation for the RPG program, required that a set of performance 
indicators be established to periodically assess the grantees' 
outcomes. The legislation mandated that these performance indicators be 
developed through a consultative process involving ACF, the Substance 
Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and 
representatives of the State or Tribal agencies who are members of the 
regional partnerships. The legislation also requires the Secretary of 
the Department of Health and Human services to submit annually to 
Congress a report that includes the performance indicators established 
under this grant program.
    The final set of RPG performance indicators was approved by ACF and 
disseminated to the funded grantees in January 2008. It includes a 
total of 23 indicators across four outcome domains: Child/youth (9 
indicators), adult (7 indicators), family/relationship (5 indicators), 
and regional partnership/service capacity (2 indicators). It also 
includes a core set of child and adult demographic elements that will 
provide important context needed to properly analyze, explain and 
understand the outcomes. No other national data collection measures 
these critical child, adult, family, and RPG outcomes specifically for 
these children and families. The data also will have significant 
implications for policy and program development for child well-being 
programs nationwide.
    The purpose of this request is to obtain OMB approval for an 
extension of the original three year request which was approved on 
March 31, 2009. Forty-three of the original 53 grantees were awarded 
for a five-year grant period, thus necessitating an extension of the 
original request in order to continue data collection for the remainder 
of the grant period. The first submission of RPG grantee data to the 
RPG data collection system occurred in December, 2008, and every six 
months thereafter. Data collection will be conducted for the fifth year 
of the grant period, ending September 30, 2012, with data submission by 
January 2013. Data collection may be extended for one year until 
January 2014 should grantees request and be granted no-cost extensions.
    To minimize grantee data collection and reporting burden, many of 
the data elements are already being collected by counties and States in 
order to report Federally-mandated data to the Adoption and Foster Care 
Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS), the Treatment Episode Data Set 
(TEDS) and the National Outcome Measures (NOMs); in addition, all 
States voluntarily submit data for the Federal National Child Abuse and 
Neglect Data System (NCANDS). Therefore, most child welfare data 
elements included in the RPG performance measures can be found in a 
State's automated case management system, which is often a Federally-
funded Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS). 
TEDS admission and discharge data are collected by State substance 
abuse agencies according to their own information systems for 
monitoring substance abuse treatment admissions and transmitted monthly 
or quarterly to the SAMHSA contractor. As a result of prior Federal 
government reporting requirements, States are already collecting 
several data elements needed by the RPGs. The RPGs lead agency or their 
state or local partners are able to download information from these 
existing State child welfare and substance abuse treatment data systems 
to obtain data to monitor their RPG program outcomes, thereby reducing 
the amount of primary data collection needed.
