Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    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. To request more information on the proposed projects 
or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions 
of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Evaluation of Programs to Provide Services to Persons 
who are Homeless with Mental and/or Substance Use Disorders (Homeless 
Programs)--New

    SAMHSA is conducting a cross-program evaluation of Projects for 
Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH); Services in 
Supportive Housing (SSH); and Grants for the Benefit of Homeless 
Individuals (GBHI), which includes grantee tracks focused on SSH, 
General GBHI grantees, and Cooperative Agreements to Benefit Homeless 
Individuals (CABHI). The SAMHSA Homeless Programs aim to support local 
capacity to provide services for homeless individuals with substance 
abuse and/or mental health problems. The Homeless Programs national 
evaluation broadly aims to address the contexts in which projects 
operate; whether a project is successfully implemented and provides 
appropriate services to the intended target population; and whether the 
target population demonstrates improved outcomes.
    Data collection efforts for the evaluation will include a Document 
Review: Project Director Telephone Follow-up, Site Visits, Evidence-
Based Practice (EBP) Self-Assessment, Parts 1 and 2 and Permanent 
Supportive Housing (PSH) Self-Assessment which collect grantee project 
characteristics, process information such as client flow and project 
logic models, barriers and facilitators to implementation, and data on 
the types of treatment and housing services provided.
    The Document Review: Project Director Telephone Follow-up is a 
telephone interview that covers the following topics: Grantee Agency 
and Project Characteristics, Target Population, Stakeholders/Partners, 
Services, EBPs/Best Practices, Housing, Project Organization and 
Implementation, Sustainability, Local Evaluation, Technical Assistance 
and Lessons Learned. Grantee project directors from the GBHI 2010, 
CABHI 2011-2012, and SSH 2009-2010 cohorts and PATH state contacts 
(n=158) will be contacted to collect grantee project information which 
will be used to better understand how grantees develop their grant 
projects.
    Site Visit Guides consist of semi-structured discussions with 
grantee project directors, evaluators, financial staff, clinical 
treatment staff, case managers, housing supports staff, key 
stakeholders and consumers/client participants. This approach allows 
information to be collected from multiple perspectives giving a fuller 
picture of the grant project. Seventy-five site visits will be 
conducted during the evaluation (25 per year for 3 years)--60 for GBHI, 
CABHI and SSH grantees and 15 for PATH grantees. Over the course of 
multiple discussions the following

[[Page 36205]]

major topics will be covered: client level process data (client 
experience with project services and client flow through the project), 
project components and activities, costs, project services alignment 
with client need, program outputs and outcomes, training and quality 
assurance, and relationships with primary partners and stakeholders.
    The EBP Self-Assessment will provide data needed to assess and 
aggregate for analyses the resources and processes required for 
practice implementation, whether the EBP services are being delivered 
in accordance with their evidence-based components and how the 
practices are adapted for the projects' target populations, if 
relevant. The EBP Self-Assessment includes two parts. The first part is 
a general overview of EBP implementation and will be administered to 
all GBHI, CABHI, and SSH grantees (n=127). The second part is an in-
depth assessment for grantees who are implementing one or more of the 
following EBPs: Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), Integrated Dual 
Disorders Treatment (IDDT), Illness Management and Recovery (IMR), 
Supported Employment (SE) and Critical Time Intervention (CTI). The 
estimated number of grantees who will complete Part Two of the EBP 
Assessment is 87.
    The PSH Self-Assessment targets the subset of grantees implementing 
PSH models and aims to help identify the extent to which grantees with 
PSH models meet the relevant dimensions of PSH. The estimated number of 
grantees who will complete the PSH Self-Assessment is 100. Both the EBP 
and PSH Self-Assessment will be web-based questionnaires.
