Information Collection Request Title: Black Lung Clinics Program Performance Measures OMB No. 0915– 0292—Extension. Abstract: The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP), Health Resources and Services Administration, conducts an annual data collection of user information for the Black Lung Program, which has been ongoing, with OMB, approval since 2004. The purpose of the Black Lung Clinic Program is to improve the health status of coal workers by providing services to minimize the effects of respiratory and pulmonary impairments of coal miners, including treatment required in the management of problems associated with black lung disease, which improves the miner’s quality of life and reduces economic costs associated with morbidity and mortality arising from pulmonary diseases. Collecting this data will provide HRSA information on how well each grantee is meeting the needs of active and retired miners in their communities. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data from the annual report will provide quantitative information about the clinics, specifically: (a) The characteristics of the patients they serve (gender, age, disability level, and occupation type); (b) the characteristics of services provided (medical encounters, nonmedical encounters, benefits counseling, or outreach); and, (c) the number of patients served. This assessment will enable HRSA to provide data required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. It will also ensure that funds are effectively used to provide services that meet the target population needs. Likely Respondents: Black Lung Clinics Program Grantees. 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 disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.

Approximately $4.9M will be made available in the form of a grant to current grantees (see below) during the budget period of 6/1/2013—5/31/2014. This will provide for an extension of the program for one year, as provided for in section 624 of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–240) (ATRA) with the least disruption to the states, communities, and constituencies that currently receive assistance and services from these grantees. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipients of the Awards: The 51 incumbent grantees of record (listed below). Amount of the Non-Competitive Awards: Up to $95,700 per grantee. CFDA Number: 93.504. Period of Supplemental Funding: 6/1/ 2013–5/31/2014. Authority: Section 501(c)(1) of the Social Security Act, as amended. Justification: The F2F HIC program provides grants to family-run/staffed PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 organizations to ensure families of children with special health care needs have access to adequate information about health and community resources to facilitate informed and shared decision-making around their children’s health care. F2F HICs were originally authorized under the Budget Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109– 171). Congress specified that there be a family-run/staffed center in each state and the District of Columbia that, among other tasks, assists families of children with special health care needs to make informed choices about health care in order to promote good treatment decisions, cost effectiveness, and improved health outcomes; and provides information and educational opportunities for families, their health professionals, schools, and other appropriate entities. The earlier law was later amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–148), which made funding available until fiscal year (FY) 2012.
