ACTION: Notice of the award of a singlesource cooperative agreement to the National Council on Family Violence to support the National Domestic Violence Hotline (Hotline). AGENCY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Division of Family Violence and Prevention Services (DFVPS) announces the award of a single-source cooperative agreement in the amount of $275,000 to the National Council on Family Violence in Austin, TX, for the Hotline. The Hotline, currently funded under the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, provides direct services and referrals nationally for victims of family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Award funds will support the efforts of the Hotline in providing critical services to victims of Hurricane Sandy that are also victims of family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence within the mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:18 May 08, 2013 Jkt 229001 states of New Jersey and New York. The Hotline will conduct training for current disaster responders, provide training and technical assistance to local programs that run hotlines/crisis lines, and develop a public awareness campaign to publicize the various ways to contact the Hotline, the Teen Dating Abuse Helpline, state hotlines, and local program hotlines. Reports from the New York and New Jersey Disaster Task Forces indicate the need for training on domestic violence in disaster response situations and on making connections to appropriate services for disaster case managers and for state, regional, and federal staff involved with on-scene response. Frontline disaster relief staff and volunteers may be the first responders to observe domestic violence in families they are supporting; however, they may not be able to discern signs of domestic violence due to a lack of training. In fact, many responders may confuse the stresses of the disaster with the stresses of domestic violence on the victim and may overlook abusive behaviors on the part of the intimate partner as signs of stress from the disaster. Though based in Austin, TX, the Hotline’s experience in providing victim advocacy, referrals, and program support makes it well-positioned to provide training to disaster responders in New York and New Jersey. Training will concentrate on protocols and referral procedures, accessing domestic violence services, recognizing the warning signs of domestic violence, safety planning, and maintaining ongoing health and wellness initiatives during the crisis response and recovery phase. In this effort, the Hotline will partner with the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women, the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and national experts on domestic violence and disaster response to develop and offer appropriate and effective training.

Health Centers (HCs) receive grants from HRSA to provide primary and preventive health care services to medically underserved populations. The proposed Patient Survey will collect information about HC patients, regarding their health status, the reasons for seeking care at HCs, their health-related diagnoses, health services they obtain at HCs and from other healthcare settings, the quality of those services received, and their satisfaction with the care they received. This information will be collected through in-person interviews from a nationally representative sample of HC patients. Prior to the deployment of the national study, a cognitive pretest will be conducted to refine and test the face validity and internal validity of questions in the survey instrument in different languages, and test the survey sampling methodologies and procedures. The pre-test will include cognitive interviews to ensure that the questions are being understood as were intended. Interviews conducted in the pre-test and the national study are E:\FR\FM\09MYN1.SGM 09MYN1

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this

and methodology; and ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information to be collected.

B. Discussion and Analysis

    One comment pertaining to the collection was received.
    Comment 1: Commenter supports the proposed change to the GSAR that 
will increase the transparency of how the IFF is used. However, felt
