To qualify for participation in the SDS program, a school must be carrying out a program for recruiting and retaining students from disadvantaged backgrounds, including students who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups (section 737(d)(1)(B) of the PHS Act). A school must meet the eligibility criteria to demonstrate that the program has achieved success based on the number and/or percentage of disadvantaged students who graduate from the school. In awarding SDS funds to eligible schools, funding points must be given to schools based on the proportion of graduate students practicing in primary care, the proportion of underrepresented minority students, and the proportion of graduates working in medically underserved communities (section 737(c) of the PHS Act). Information collected from the SDS application and SDS report is needed by the Department to determine whether applicant schools meet the statutory and regulatory requirements, to determine eligibility for program participation, and to establish priority points for funding. Applicant schools are requested to complete an application for each discipline or program. Data are provided on numbers of full-time student enrollment and the applicant schools’ racial/ethnicity data, disadvantaged fulltime enrollment by class year, full-time students graduated, full-time disadvantaged students graduated, and full-time graduates serving in Medically Underserved Communities. Numbers of full-time graduates serving in primary care must be provided only for schools of medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, nursing (graduate degree program), physician assistants, dental hygiene, and mental and behavioral health. Each school will determine the eligibility of students based on financial need and whether a student is from a disadvantaged background. 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.

Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited to address one or more of the following points: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) The quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, exposures, including participants who performed various types of clean-uprelated work (‘‘exposed’’) and other who did not (‘‘unexposed’’ controls). Of the 32,762 enrolled into the Full Cohort, 20,000 have been assigned to the Active Follow-up Sub-cohort, and 6,000 of these have been assigned to the Biomedical Surveillance Sub-cohort. In order to minimize loss to followup, updated contact information will be collected yearly for the Full Cohort. Follow-up questionnaires will be administered biennially to the Active Follow-up Sub-cohort to assess changes in health status and factors that could confound associations between exposures and outcomes. A supplemental mental health questionnaire will be administered repeatedly over a 2-year period to a subset of 4,600 participants in the Active Follow-up Sub-cohort to assess mental health trajectories among those affected by the oil spill and utilization of mental health services in the Gulf region. Participants in the Biomedical Surveillance Sub-cohort will be invited to take part in a comprehensive research-based clinical examination. The clinical exam provides an opportunity to carry out more comprehensive clinical testing and mental health evaluations than could be completed during the baseline home visit. The exams will allow for a much more in-depth assessment of pulmonary, neurological, and mental health outcomes that may be associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill exposures and experiences. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 21,724. mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Exposures range from negligible to potentially significant; however, potential long-term human health consequences are largely unknown due to insufficient research in this area.

and ethnic minority groups (section 737(d)(1)(B) of the PHS Act). A 
school must meet the eligibility criteria to demonstrate that the

    Each school will determine the eligibility of students based on 
financial need and whether a student is from a disadvantaged 
background.
