Awarded facilities are required to provide a periodic (quarterly for construction related projects, annually for equipment only projects) update of the status of the funded project until it is completed. The monitoring period averages about three years, although some projects take up to five years to complete. The information collected from these updates is vital to program management staff to determine whether projects are progressing according to the established timeframes, meeting deadlines established in the Notice of Award, and drawing down funds appropriately. The data collected from the updates are also shared with the Division of Grants Management Operations for their assistance in the overall evaluation of each project’s progress.

This standardized form enables grantees to directly input the required information in a consistent and uniform manner. The electronic form minimizes burden to respondents by alerting the respondents when there are missing data elements prior to submission. We acknowledge a change in the burden estimate due to close out of old projects. 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.

OMB No. 0915-0309--Extension

    Abstract: The Health Resources and Services Administration's Health 
Care and Other Facilities (HCOF) program provides congressionally-
directed funds to health-related facilities for construction related 
activities and/or capital equipment purchases. Awarded facilities are 
required to provide a periodic (quarterly for construction related 
projects, annually for equipment only projects) update of the status of 
the funded project until it is completed. The monitoring period 
averages about three years, although some projects take up to five 
years to complete. The information collected from these updates is 
vital to program management staff to determine whether projects are 
progressing according to the established timeframes, meeting deadlines 
established in the Notice of Award, and drawing down funds 
appropriately. The data collected from the updates are also shared with 
the Division of Grants Management Operations for their assistance in 
the overall evaluation of each project's progress.
    An electronic form is currently being used for progress reporting 
for the HCOF program. This standardized form enables grantees to 
directly input the required information in a consistent and uniform 
manner. The electronic form minimizes burden to respondents by alerting 
the respondents when there are missing data elements prior to 
submission. We acknowledge a change in the burden estimate due to close 
out of old projects.
    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
