Proposed Project: Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) Program (OMB No. 0930–0279)— Reinstatement SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is responsible for the evaluation instruments of the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) Program. The program is a major initiative designed to: (1) Prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking; (2) reduce substance abuse related problems; and, (3) build VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:57 Aug 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State-, territorial-, tribal- and community-levels. Five steps comprise the SPF: Step 1: Profile population needs, resources, and readiness to address the problems and gaps in service delivery. Step 2: Mobilize and/or build capacity to address needs. Step 3: Develop a comprehensive strategic plan. Step 4: Implement evidence-based prevention programs, policies, and practices and infrastructure development activities. Step 5: Monitor process, evaluate effectiveness, sustain effective programs/ activities, and improve or replace those that fail. An evaluation is currently in process with the SPF SIG Cohorts III, IV and V. The primary objective for this evaluation is to determine the impact of SPF SIG on the reduction of substance abuse related problems, on building state prevention capacity and infrastructure, and preventing the onset and reducing the progression of substance abuse, as measured by the SAMHSA National Outcomes Measures (NOMs). Data collected at the granteeand community-levels will provide information about process and system outcomes at the grantee and community levels as well as context for analyzing participant-level NOMs outcomes. This notice invites comments for reinstatement to the protocol for the ongoing Cross-site Evaluation of the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) (OMB No. 0930–0279) which expired on 11/30/12. This revision includes two parts: 1. Submission of the instruments for the cross-site evaluation of the SPF SIG Cohorts IV and V: (a) The two-part Community-Level Instrument (CLI Parts I and II); and (b) the two Grantee-Level Instruments (GLI)—the GLI Infrastructure Instrument and the GLI Implementation Instrument. 2. Calculation of burden estimates for Cohorts IV and V, 24 and 10 grantees, respectively, for the 2-part CLI and the 2 GLIs. Per guidance from the previous OMB submission for the GLI and CLI Instruments (OMB No. 0930–0279), the number of items have been reduced, resulting in a reduced burden. Grantee-Level Data Collection Two web-based surveys, GLI Infrastructure Instrument and GLI Implementation Instrument, were developed for assessing grantee-level efforts and progress. These instruments gather information about the infrastructure of the grantee’s overall prevention system and collect data regarding the grantee’s efforts and PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54263 progress in implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework 5-step process. The total burden for these instruments has been reduced by deleting items that are no longer necessary as baseline data has already been gathered from all grantees. Information for both surveys will be gathered once, at the end of the three year approval period. The estimated annual burden for granteelevel data collection is displayed below in Table 1. Community-Level Data Collection The Community-level Instrument (CLI) is a two part, web-based survey for capturing information about SPF SIG implementation at the community level. Data from this instrument allows CSAP to assess the progress of the communities in their implementation of both the SPF and prevention-related interventions funded under the initiative. Part I of the instrument gathers information on the communities’ progress implementing the five SPF SIG steps and efforts taken to ensure cultural competency throughout the SPF SIG process. Subrecipient communities receiving SPF SIG awards will be required to complete Part I of the instrument annually. Part II captures data on the specific prevention intervention(s) implemented at the community level, and is completed for each prevention intervention strategy implemented during the specified reporting period. Specific questions are tailored to match the type of prevention intervention strategy implemented (e.g., Prevention Education, Community-based Processes, and Environmental). Information collected on each strategy will include date of implementation, numbers of groups and participants served, frequency of activities, and gender, age, race, and ethnicity of population served/affected. Subrecipient communities’ partners receiving SPF SIG awards are required to update Part II of the instrument a minimum of every six months. The estimated annual burden for specific segments of the communitylevel data collection is displayed in Table 1. The total burden assumes an average of 15 community-level subrecipients per grantee, annual completion of the CLI Part I, a minimum of two instrument updates per year for the CLI Part II, and an average of three distinct prevention intervention strategies implemented by each community during a 6-month period.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration


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: Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant 
(SPF SIG) Program (OMB No. 0930-0279)--Reinstatement

    SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is 
responsible for the evaluation instruments of the Strategic Prevention 
Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) Program. The program is a 
major initiative designed to: (1) Prevent the onset and reduce the 
progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage 
drinking; (2) reduce substance abuse related problems; and, (3) build 
prevention capacity and infrastructure at the State-, territorial-, 
tribal- and community-levels.
    Five steps comprise the SPF:

    Step 1: Profile population needs, resources, and readiness to 
address the problems and gaps in service delivery.
    Step 2: Mobilize and/or build capacity to address needs.
    Step 3: Develop a comprehensive strategic plan.
    Step 4: Implement evidence-based prevention programs, policies, 
and practices and infrastructure development activities.
    Step 5: Monitor process, evaluate effectiveness, sustain 
effective programs/activities, and improve or replace those that 
fail.

    An evaluation is currently in process with the SPF SIG Cohorts III, 
IV and V. The primary objective for this evaluation is to determine the 
impact of SPF SIG on the reduction of substance abuse related problems, 
on building state prevention capacity and infrastructure, and 
preventing the onset and reducing the progression of substance abuse, 
as measured by the SAMHSA National Outcomes Measures (NOMs). Data 
collected at the grantee- and community-levels will provide information 
about process and system outcomes at the grantee and community levels 
as well as context for analyzing participant-level NOMs outcomes.
    This notice invites comments for reinstatement to the protocol for 
the ongoing Cross-site Evaluation of the Strategic Prevention Framework 
State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) (OMB No. 0930-0279) which expired on 
11/30/12. This revision includes two parts:
    1. Submission of the instruments for the cross-site evaluation of 
the SPF SIG Cohorts IV and V: (a) The two-part Community-Level 
Instrument (CLI Parts I and II); and (b) the two Grantee-Level 
Instruments (GLI)--the GLI Infrastructure Instrument and the GLI 
Implementation Instrument.
    2. Calculation of burden estimates for Cohorts IV and V, 24 and 10 
grantees, respectively, for the 2-part CLI and the 2 GLIs. Per guidance 
from the previous OMB submission for the GLI and CLI Instruments (OMB 
No. 0930-0279), the number of items have been reduced, resulting in a 
reduced burden.

Grantee-Level Data Collection

    Two web-based surveys, GLI Infrastructure Instrument and GLI 
Implementation Instrument, were developed for assessing grantee-level 
efforts and progress. These instruments gather information about the 
infrastructure of the grantee's overall prevention system and collect 
data regarding the grantee's efforts and progress in implementing the 
Strategic Prevention Framework 5-step process. The total burden for 
these instruments has been reduced by deleting items that are no longer 
necessary as baseline data has already been gathered from all grantees. 
Information for both surveys will be gathered once, at the end of the 
three year approval period. The estimated annual burden for grantee-
level data collection is displayed below in Table 1.

Community-Level Data Collection

    The Community-level Instrument (CLI) is a two part, web-based 
survey for capturing information about SPF SIG implementation at the 
community level. Data from this instrument allows CSAP to assess the 
progress of the communities in their implementation of both the SPF and 
prevention-related interventions funded under the initiative. Part I of 
the instrument gathers information on the communities' progress 
implementing the five SPF SIG steps and efforts taken to ensure 
cultural competency throughout the SPF SIG process. Subrecipient 
communities receiving SPF SIG awards will be required to complete Part 
I of the instrument annually.
    Part II captures data on the specific prevention intervention(s) 
implemented at the community level, and is completed for each 
prevention intervention strategy implemented during the specified 
reporting period. Specific questions are tailored to match the type of 
prevention intervention strategy implemented (e.g., Prevention 
Education, Community-based Processes, and Environmental). Information 
collected on each strategy will include date of implementation, numbers 
of groups and participants served, frequency of activities, and gender, 
age, race, and ethnicity of population served/affected. Subrecipient 
communities' partners receiving SPF SIG awards are required to update 
Part II of the instrument a minimum of every six months.
    The estimated annual burden for specific segments of the community-
level data collection is displayed in Table 1. The total burden assumes 
an average of 15 community-level subrecipients per grantee, annual 
completion of the CLI Part I, a minimum of two instrument updates per 
year for the CLI Part II, and an average of three distinct prevention 
intervention strategies implemented by each community during a 6-month 
period.

Total Estimates of Annualized Hour Burden

    Estimates of total and annualized reporting burden for respondents 
by evaluation cohort are displayed below in Table 1. CSAP is requesting 
an average annual estimate of: 167.28 hours at the grantee-level and 
5,737.5 hours at the community-level. These hours are a reduction in 
the average annual estimate requested in the previous submission for 
grantees and communities.
