Project: Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC) Network Program Monitoring (OMB No. 0930–0216)— Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) will continue to monitor program performance of its Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTCs). The ATTCs disseminate current health services research from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institute of Mental Health, Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, National Institute of Justice, and other sources, as well as other SAMHSA programs. To accomplish this, the ATTCs develop and update state-of-the-art, researchbased curricula and professional development training. CSAT monitors the performance of ATTC events. The ATTCs hold three types of events: Technical assistance events, meetings, and trainings. An ATTC technical assistance event is defined as a jointly planned consultation generally involving a series of contacts between the ATTC and an outside organization/institution during which the ATTC provides expertise and gives direction toward resolving a problem or improving conditions. An ATTC meeting is defined as an ATTC sponsored or co-sponsored events in which a group of people representing [FR Doc. 2013–02490 Filed 2–4–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4162–20–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1 570 In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects.

CSAT currently uses seven (7) instruments to monitor the performance and improve the quality of ATTC events. Two (2) of these forms, the Meeting Follow-up Form and the Technical Assistance Follow-up Form, are currently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) through approval for CSAT Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) Customer Satisfaction instruments (OMB No. 0930–0197). CSAT is not seeking any action related to these two forms at this time. They are merely referenced here to provide clarity and context to the description of the forms CSAT uses to monitor the performance of the ATTCs. The remaining five (5) instruments for program monitoring and quality improvement of ATTC events are currently approved by the OMB (OMB No. 0930–0216) for use through April 30, 2013. These five forms are as follows: Event Description Form; Training Post Event Form; Training Follow-up Form; Meeting Post Event Form; and Technical Assistance Post Event Form. Sixty percent of the forms are administered in person to participants at educational and training events, who complete the forms by paper and pencil. Ten percent of the training courses are online, and thus, those forms are administered online. The remaining thirty percent is made up E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1

Proposed Project: Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental 
Illness (PAIMI) Final Rule, 42 CFR Part 51 (OMB No. 0930-0172)--
Extension

    These regulations meet the directive under 42 U.S.C. 10826(b) 
requiring the Secretary to promulgate final regulations to carry out 
the PAIMI Act. The regulations contain information collection 
requirements. The Act authorizes funds to support activities on behalf 
of individuals with significant (severe) mental illness (adults) or 
emotional impairment (children/youth)
    [42 U.S.C. 10802 (4)]. Only entities designated by the governor of 
each State, including American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. 
Virgin Islands, the Mayor of the District of Columbia, and the tribal 
councils for the American Indian Consortium (the Hopi and Navajo 
Nations in the Four Corners region of the Southwest), to protect and 
advocate the rights of persons with developmental disabilities are 
eligible to receive PAIMI Program grants [the Act at 42 U.S.C. at 10802 
(2)]. These grants are based on a formula prescribed by the Secretary 
[42 U.S.C. at 10822(a) (1) (A)].
    On January 1, each eligible State protection and advocacy (P&A) 
system is required to prepare a report that describes its activities, 
accomplishments, and expenditures to protect the rights of individuals 
with mental illness supported with payments from PAIMI Program 
allotments during the most recently completed fiscal year. The PAIMI 
Act [at 42 U.S.C. 10824(a)] requires that each P&A system transmit a 
copy of its annual report to the Secretary (via SAMHSA/CMHS) and to the 
State Mental Health Agency where the system is located. These annual 
PAIMI Program Performance Reports (PPR) to the Secretary must include 
the following information:
     The number of (PAIMI-eligible) individuals with mental 
illness served;
     A description of the types of activities undertaken;
     A description of the types of facilities providing care or 
treatment to which such activities are undertaken;
     A description of the manner in which the activities are 
initiated;
     A description of the accomplishments resulting from such 
activities;
     A description of systems to protect and advocate the 
rights of individuals with mental illness supported with payments from 
PAIMI Program allotments;
     A description of activities conducted by States to protect 
and advocate such rights;
     A description of mechanisms established by residential 
facilities for individuals with mental illness to protect such rights; 
and,
     A description of the coordination among such systems, 
activities and mechanisms;
     Specification of the number systems that are public and 
nonprofit systems established with PAIMI Program allotments;
     Recommendations for activities and services to improve the 
protection and advocacy of the rights of individuals with mental 
illness and a description of the need for such activities and services 
that were not met by the State P&A systems established under the PAIMI 
Act due to resource or annual program priority limitations.

[[Page 8159]]

    ** The PAIMI Rules [42 CFR Part 51] mandate that each State P&A 
system may place restrictions on either its case or client acceptance 
criteria developed as part of its annual PAIMI priorities. Each P&A 
system is required to inform prospective clients of any such 
restrictions when they request a service [42 CFR 51.32(b)].
    This PAIMI PPR summary must include a separate section, prepared by 
the PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC) that describes the council's 
activities and its assessment of the State P&A system's operations [42 
U.S.C. 10805(7)].
    The burden estimate for the annual State P&A system reporting 
requirements for these regulations is as follows.
