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. DATES: The period of support for this award is May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Angela Yannelli, Senior Program Specialist, Division of Family Violence Prevention and Services, 1250 Maryland Avenue SW., Suite 8210, Washington, DC 20024. Telephone: 202–401–5524; Email: Angela.Yannelli@acf.hhs.gov. 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.

The Patient Survey builds on previous periodic Patient User-Visit Surveys, which were conducted to learn about the process and outcomes of care in CHCs, MHCs, HCHs, and PHPCs. The original questionnaires were derived from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Conformance with the NHIS and NAMCS allowed comparisons between these NCHS surveys and the previous User-Visit Surveys. The new Patient Survey was developed using a questionnaire methodology similar to that used in the past, and will also potentially allow some time-trend disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below. The annual estimate of burden is as follows: comparisons for HCs with the previous User-Visit survey data, including monitoring of processes and outcomes over time. In addition, this wave of the survey will be conducted in languages not used in previous surveys (English and Spanish only), and will include patients from the fastest growing U.S. population segment, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Languages that will be used in the proposed survey include Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, Vietnamese, Spanish, and English.

Information Collection Request Title: Patient Survey--Health Centers 
(OMB No. 0915-xxxx)--[NEW]

    Abstract: The Health Center program supports Community Health 
Centers (CHCs), Migrant Health Centers (MHCs), Health Care for the 
Homeless (HCH) programs, and Public Housing Primary Care (PHPC) 
programs. 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 pre-test 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

estimated to take approximately up to 1 hour and 15 minutes each.
    The Patient Survey builds on previous periodic Patient User-Visit 
Surveys, which were conducted to learn about the process and outcomes 
of care in CHCs, MHCs, HCHs, and PHPCs. The original questionnaires 
were derived from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the 
National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) conducted by the

that will be used in the proposed survey include Chinese (Mandarin and 
Cantonese), Korean, Vietnamese, Spanish, and English. With the 
exception of Spanish speakers, other racial and ethnic subgroups were 
not able to participate in previous surveys in their own languages.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise
