All Parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program specify HRSA’s responsibilities in the administration of grant funds. Accurate allocation and expenditure records of the grantees receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding are critical to the implementation of the legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities. The forms require grantees to report on how funds are allocated and spent on core and non-core services, and on various program components, such as administration, planning and evaluation, and quality management. The two forms are identical in the types of information they collect. However, the allocation report provides data on how grantees allocate funding at the beginning of their grant cycle and the second report or the expenditure reports track actual expenditures (including carryover dollars) at the end of their grant cycle. The primary purposes of these forms are to: (1) Provide information on the number of grant dollars spent on various services and program components; and (2) oversee compliance with the intent of congressional appropriations in a timely manner. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected on these reports is critical for HRSA, state and local grantees, and individual providers to evaluate the effectiveness of these programs. Likely Respondents: All Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grantees (Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D) 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Combating Autism Act Initiative Evaluation OMB No. 0915–0335 [Revision]. Abstract: In response to the growing need for research and resources devoted to autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities (DD), the U.S. Congress passed the Combating Autism Act (CAA) in 2006. The Act included funding for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), to increase awareness, reduce barriers to screening and diagnosis, promote evidence-based interventions, and train health care professionals to screen for, diagnose or rule out, and provide evidence-based interventions for ASD DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and other DD. In 2011, the Combating Autism Reauthorization Act (CARA) was signed into law, reauthorizing funding for the CAA’s programs for an additional 3 years at the existing funding levels. Through the CARA, HRSA is tasked with increasing awareness of ASD and other DD, reducing barriers to screening and diagnosis, promoting evidence-based interventions, and training health care professionals in the use of valid and reliable screening and diagnostic tools. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA’s activities under the CARA legislation are delegated to the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), which is implementing the Combating Autism Act Initiative (CAAI) in response to the legislative mandate. The purpose of this evaluation is to design and implement an evaluation to assess the effectiveness of MCHB’s activities in meeting the goals and objectives of the CAAI and to provide sufficient data to inform MCHB and the Congress as to the utility of the grant programs funded under the Initiative. The evaluation will focus on indicators related to: (1) Increasing awareness of ASD and other DD among health care providers, other MCH professionals, and the general public; (2) reducing barriers to screening and diagnosis; (3) supporting research on evidence-based interventions; (4) promoting the E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
