Download as PDF 4477 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 18 / Tuesday, January 28, 2014 / Notices Information Collection Request Title: Healthy Start Evaluation and Quality Improvement OMB No. 0915–0338— Revision. Abstract: The National Healthy Start Program, funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), has the goal of reducing disparities in infant mortality and adverse perinatal outcomes. The program began as a demonstration project with 15 grantees in 1991 and has expanded over the past two decades to 105 grantees serving 196 communities across 39 states. Healthy Start grantees operate in communities with rates of infant mortality at least 11⁄2 times the U.S. national average and high rates for other adverse perinatal outcomes. These communities are geographically, racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse low-income areas. Healthy Start covers services during the perinatal period (before, during, after pregnancy) and follows the woman and infant through 2 years after the end of the pregnancy. The next round of funding represents a transformation of the program framework from nine service and systems core components to five approaches. The five approaches are as follows: (1) Improving women’s health; (2) promoting quality services; (3) strengthening family resilience; (4) achieving collective impact; and (5) increasing accountability through quality improvement, performance monitoring, and evaluation. MCHB seeks to conduct a mixedmethods evaluation to assess the effectiveness of the program on individual, organizational, and community-level outcomes. Data collection instruments will include a Women, Children, and Families Information Form; Healthy Start Grantee Web Survey; Community Action Network (CAN) Web Survey; Healthy Start Site Visit Protocol; and Healthy Start Participant Focus Group Protocol. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of the data collection instruments will be to obtain consistent information across all grantees about Healthy Start and its outcomes and in-depth information for 15 Healthy Start communities and 15 comparison communities to support a rigorous evaluation design. The data will be used to: (1) Provide credible and rigorous evidence of program effect on outcomes; (2) assess the relative contribution of the five program approaches to individual and community-level outcomes; (3) meet program needs for accountability, programmatic decision-making, and ongoing quality improvement; and (4) strengthen the evidence-base, and identify best and promising practices for the program to support sustainability, replication, and dissemination of the program. Likely Respondents: Respondents include pregnant women and women of reproductive age who are served by the Healthy Start program for the Women, Children, and Families Information Form; project directors and staff for the Healthy Start Grantee Web Survey; representatives from partner organizations for the Community Action Network (CAN) Web Survey; program staff, providers, and partners for the Healthy Start Site Visit Protocol; and program participants for the Healthy Start Participant Focus Group Protocol. 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: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services Waiver Application Requirements. OMB No.: 0915–0307—Revision. Abstract: Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program), Part A section 2604(c), Part B section 2612(b), and Part C section 2651(c), requires that grantees expend 75 percent of Parts A, B, and C funds on core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs for individuals with HIV/AIDS, identified and eligible under the legislation. In order for grantees under Parts A, B, and C to be exempted from the 75 percent core medical services requirement, they must request and receive a waiver from HRSA, as required in the Act. On October 25, 2013, HRSA published revised standards for core medical services waiver requests in the Federal Register (78 FR 63990). These revised standards will allow grantees more flexibility to adjust resource allocation based on the current situation in their local environment. These standards ensure that grantees receiving waivers demonstrate the availability of core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs, for persons with HIV/AIDS served under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. The core medical services waiver uniform standard and waiver request process will apply to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grant Awards under Parts A, B, and C of Title XXVI of the PHS Act. Core medical services waivers will be effective for a 1-year period that is consistent with the grant award period. Grantees may submit a waiver request before the annual grant application, with the application, or up to 4 months after the grant award has been made. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses the documentation submitted in core medical services waiver requests to determine if the applicant/grantee meets the statutory requirements for waiver eligibility including: (1) No waiting lists for AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) services; and (2) evidence of core medical services availability within the grantee’s jurisdiction, state, or service area to all individuals with HIV/ AIDS identified and eligible under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. See sections 2604(c)(2), 2612(b)(2), and 2651(c)(2) of the PHS Act. Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program Part A, B, and C grantees.

(Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program), Part A section 2604(c), Part B section 
2612(b), and Part C section 2651(c), requires that grantees expend 75

required in the Act.
    On October 25, 2013, HRSA published revised standards for core 
medical services waiver requests in the Federal Register (78 FR 63990). 
These revised standards will allow grantees more flexibility to adjust 
resource allocation based on the current situation in their local 
environment. These standards ensure that grantees receiving waivers 
demonstrate the availability of core medical services, including 
antiretroviral drugs, for persons with HIV/AIDS served under Title XXVI 
of the PHS Act. The core medical services waiver uniform standard and 
waiver request process will apply to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grant 
Awards under Parts A, B, and C of Title XXVI of the PHS Act. Core 
medical services waivers will be effective for a 1-year period that is 
consistent with the grant award period. Grantees may submit a waiver 
request before the annual grant application, with the application, or 
up to 4 months after the grant award has been made.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses the 
documentation submitted in core medical services waiver requests to 
determine if the applicant/grantee meets the statutory requirements for 
waiver eligibility including: (1) No waiting lists for AIDS Drug 
Assistance Program (ADAP) services; and (2) evidence of core medical 
services availability within the grantee's jurisdiction, state, or 
service area to all individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible 
under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. See sections 2604(c)(2), 2612(b)(2), 
and 2651(c)(2) of the PHS Act.
    Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A, B, and C 
grantees.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the
