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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

Structurally, the SS/ HS program brings together representatives from many diverse stakeholder groups seeking cooperation from an array of public health, mental health, education, law enforcement, justice and social service systems, as well as families and youth, to work towards the mutual goals of promoting safety, well-being, and healthy development. The purpose of this supplemental funding is to expand and enhance current grant activities by broadening the current focus to bring lessons learned to scale. The TA Center will engage local, state, and Federal agencies, through collaborative partnerships, to strengthen the mental health promotion, mental illness prevention, and substance abuse prevention efforts across the country.
