SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: Information Collection Request Title: ‘‘Health Care and Other Facilities’’ 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 disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: HRSA AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) OMB No. 0915–0281—Revision Abstract: The AETC Program, under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program established by Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended, supports a network of regional and national centers that conduct targeted, multi-disciplinary education and training programs for health care providers treating persons with HIV/ AIDS. The AETC’s purpose is to increase the number of health care providers who are effectively educated and motivated to counsel, diagnose, treat, and medically manage individuals with HIV infection, and to help prevent high-risk behaviors that lead to HIV transmission. As part of an ongoing effort to evaluate AETC activities, information is needed on AETC training sessions, consultations, and technical assistance activities. Each regional center collects information on AETC training events, and is required to report aggregate data on their activities to HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB). The data provides information on the number of training events, including clinical trainings and consultations, as well as technical assistance activities conducted by each regional center, the number of health care providers receiving professional training or consultation, and the time and effort expended on different levels of training and consultation activities. In addition, information is obtained on the populations served by AETC trainees and the increase in capacity achieved through training events. Collection of this information allows HRSA/HAB to provide information on training activities and types of education and training provided to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grantees, resource allocation, and capacity expansion. Trainees are asked to complete the Participant Information Form (PIF) for each activity they complete, and trainers are asked to complete the Event Record (ER). 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.

Information Collection Request Title: HRSA AIDS Education and Training 
Centers (AETC)

OMB No. 0915-0281--Revision

    Abstract: The AETC Program, under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 
established by Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as 
amended, supports a network of regional and national centers that 
conduct targeted, multi-disciplinary education and training programs 
for health care providers treating persons with HIV/AIDS. The AETC's 
purpose is to increase the number of health care providers who are 
effectively educated and motivated to counsel, diagnose, treat, and 
medically manage individuals with HIV infection, and to help prevent 
high-risk behaviors that lead to HIV transmission.
    As part of an ongoing effort to evaluate AETC activities, 
information is needed on AETC training sessions, consultations, and 
technical assistance activities. Each regional center collects 
information on AETC training events, and is required to report 
aggregate data on their activities to HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB). The 
data provides information on the number of training events, including 
clinical trainings and consultations, as well as technical assistance 
activities conducted by each regional center, the number of health care 
providers receiving professional training or consultation, and the time 
and effort expended on different levels of training and consultation 
activities. In addition, information is obtained on the populations 
served by AETC trainees and the increase in capacity achieved through 
training events. Collection of this information allows HRSA/HAB to 
provide information on training activities and types of education and 
training provided to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grantees, resource 
allocation, and capacity expansion. Trainees are asked to complete the 
Participant Information Form (PIF) for each activity they complete, and 
trainers are asked to complete the Event Record (ER).
    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 ICR are summarized in the table below.
