Project: 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health—(OMB No. 0930–0110) —Revision The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of the civilian, non-institutionalized population of the United States 12 years old and older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. Data from clinical interviews completed in 2008 were combined with the main interview short scale data to develop a predictive model that was applied to the full main sample to estimate SMI. Follow-up clinical interviews continued to be conducted with NSDUH respondents from 2009 to 2012. Data from these interviews were analyzed annually to update the calibration of the screening measure. To maximize trend validity, this model has been applied to 2009–2011 data. With the completion of 1500 clinical interviews in 2012, SAMHSA will have accumulated a large enough sample (4,500) to update and improve the models. Therefore, the MHSS clinical interviewing will be discontinued in 2013. For the 2013 NSDUH, a few questionnaire changes are proposed. The instrument has been updated to include new questions on military service, medical marijuana, physician substance use screening, and respondent characteristics. As with all NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2013 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. The total annual burden estimate is shown below: ESTIMATED BURDEN FOR 2013 NSDUH Responses per respondent Number of respondents Instrument Hours per response Total burden hours Hourly wage rate Annualized costs 145,474 67,500 5,400 10,125 1 1 1 1 0.083 1.000 0.067 0.067 12,074 67,500 362 678 $14.45 14.45 14.45 14.45 $174,469 975,375 5,231 9,797 Total .................................................. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Household Screening ...............................

Proposed Project: Projects for Assistance in Transition From 
Homelessness (PATH) Program Annual Report (OMB No. 0930-0205)--Revision

    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 
non-profit 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 revision of the current approval of the 
annual grantee reporting requirements. Section 528 of the PHS Act 
specifies that not later than January 31 of each fiscal year, a funded 
entity will prepare and submit a report in such form and containing 
such information as is determined necessary for securing a record and 
description of the purposes for which amounts received under section 
521 were expended during the preceding fiscal year and of the 
recipients of such amounts and determining whether such amounts were 
expended in accordance with statutory provisions.
    The proposed changes to the PATH Annual Report Survey are as 
follows:
1. Format
    To create a PATH report that is easier to read, the formatting has 
been modified to be more table driven. In addition, the language has 
been made more concise. Although the online form and report is close in 
flow to the previous report, it is necessary to thoroughly read all 
reporting instructions to insure proper data entry.
2. Estimated Counts
    The new PATH report does not include entry of estimated counts. 
Only actual counts should be entered.
3. Homelessness Management Information System (HMIS) Data Integration
    The Data section of the report is expected to be propagated from 
the local HMIS when providers use HMIS. This includes client counts, 
services, referrals, and demographics. This data will be automatically 
aggregated from client-level data.
4. Demographic Responses
    In order to facilitate integration of PATH data into HMIS, all data 
responses have been modified to fully align with valid HMIS responses. 
For example, the ``Hispanic'' response has been separated from ``Race'' 
and placed in ``Ethnicity.''
5. Additional Data Items
    The PATH report now tracks demographic data for persons contacted, 
as well as those enrolled. For services and referrals, in addition to 
gathering the number of enrolled persons receiving the service or 
referral, there is a total count of the number of times that particular 
service was provided or referral made.
6. Voluntary Outcome Measures
    The data previously entered as voluntary outcome measures has now 
been moved to the referral section of the report and are no longer 
considered ``voluntary.''
    The estimated annual burden for these reporting requirements is 
summarized in the table below.
