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: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form (OMB No. 0930– 0329)—Revision In 2009 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the implementation of the SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) effort in all states. SOAR’s primary objective is to improve the allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who have serious mental illnesses. During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/SSDI applications through the process is stressed. In response to requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center under SAMHSA’s direction developed a webbased data form that case managers can use to track the progress of submitted applications, including decisions received from SSA either on initial application or on appeal. This password-protected web-based data form is housed on the SOAR Web site (https://soartrack.prainc.com). Use of this form is completely voluntary. In addition, data from the web-based form can be compiled into reports on decision results and the use of SOAR core components, such as the SSA–1696 Appointment of Representative, which allows SSA to communicate directly with the case manager assisting with the application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR state-level leads, and the national SOAR Technical Assistance Center and SOAR national evaluation team to quantify the success of the effort overall and to identify areas where additional technical assistance is needed. The changes to this form are an added question about the reason for denial, if received and an added ten optional questions about Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement amounts, back payments and applicants’ work involvement and earnings. These data provide important tools in local and state sustainability efforts of SOAR. If caseworkers do not have this information, they can simply leave the items blank.

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: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form (OMB No. 0930-0329)--
Revision

    In 2009 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the 
implementation of the SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) 
effort in all states. SOAR's primary objective is to improve the 
allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability 
benefits for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and 
who have serious mental illnesses.
    During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/
SSDI applications through the process is stressed. In response to 
requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center 
under SAMHSA's direction developed a web-based data form that case 
managers can use to track the progress of submitted applications, 
including decisions received from SSA either on initial application or 
on appeal. This password-protected web-based data form is housed on the 
SOAR Web site (https://soartrack.prainc.com). Use of this form is 
completely voluntary.
    In addition, data from the web-based form can be compiled into 
reports on decision results and the use of SOAR core components, such 
as the SSA-1696 Appointment of Representative, which allows SSA to 
communicate directly with the case manager assisting with the 
application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR 
state-level leads, and the national SOAR Technical Assistance Center 
and SOAR national evaluation team to quantify the success of the effort 
overall and to identify areas where additional technical assistance is 
needed.
    The changes to this form are an added question about the reason for 
denial, if received and an added ten optional questions about Medicaid 
and Medicare reimbursement amounts, back payments and applicants' work 
involvement and earnings. These data provide important tools in local 
and state sustainability efforts of SOAR. If caseworkers do not have 
this information, they can simply leave the items blank.
    The estimated response burden is as follows:
