Proposed Project: Biannual Infrastructure Development Measures for State Adolescent Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SAT– ED) and State Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SYT– ED) Programs—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment has developed a set of infrastructure development measures in which recipients of cooperative agreements will report on various benchmarks on a semi-annual basis. The infrastructure development measures are designed to collect information at the state-level and site-level. The infrastructure development measures are based on the programmatic requirements conveyed in TI–12–006, Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SAT–ED) and TI– 13–014, Cooperative Agreements for State Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SYT–ED). The purpose of this program is to provide funding to States/Territories/ Tribes to improve treatment for adolescents and transitional age youth through the development of a learning laboratory with collaborating local community-based treatment provider sites. Through the shared experience between the State/Territory/Tribe and the local community-based treatment provider sites, an evidence-based practice (EBP) will be implemented, youth and families will be provided services, and a feedback loop will be developed to enable the State/Territory/ Tribe and the sites to identify barriers and test solutions through a services component operating in real time. The expected outcomes of these cooperative agreements will include needed changes to State/Territorial/Tribal policies and procedures; development of financing structures that work in the current environment; and a blueprint for States/ Territories/Tribes and providers that can be used throughout the State/ Territory/Tribe to widen the use of effective substance use treatment EBPs. Additionally, adolescents (ages 12 to 18), transitional age youth (ages 18 to 24), and their families/primary caregivers who are provided services through grant funds will inform the process to improve systems issues. Estimates for response burden were calculated based on the methodology (survey data collection) being used and are based on previous experience collecting similar data and results of the pilot study. For emailed biannual surveys, burden estimates of 12.0 hours were used for Project Directors and/or Program Managers and burden estimates of 7.2 hours were used for other project staff members. It is estimated that 13 Project Directors and/or Program Managers and 26 other staff members from Cohort 1 will respond to the emailed survey biannually (i.e., twice each year) for 3 years at an estimated total burden of 2,059.2 hours for Cohort 1. It is estimated that 10 Project Directors and/or Program Managers and 20 other staff members from Cohort 2 will respond to the emailed survey biannually (i.e., twice each year) for 5 years at an estimated total burden of 2,640 hours for Cohort 2. It is estimated that 12 Project Directors and/or Program Managers and 24 other staff members from Cohort 3 will respond to the emailed survey biannually (i.e., twice each year) for 5 years at an estimated total burden of 3,168 hours for Cohort 2. The burden hours of Cohort 1 (2,059.2 hours), Cohort 2 (2,640 hours) and Cohort 3 (3,168 hours) combined comes to a total estimated burden for the emailed biannual survey of 7,867.2 hours.

Proposed Project: Biannual Infrastructure Development Measures for 
State Adolescent Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SAT-ED) and 
State Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SYT-ED) Programs--
NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment has developed a set of 
infrastructure development measures in which recipients of cooperative 
agreements will report on various benchmarks on a semi-annual basis. 
The infrastructure development measures are designed to collect 
information at the state-level and site-level.
    The infrastructure development measures are based on the 
programmatic requirements conveyed in TI-12-006, Cooperative Agreements 
for State Adolescent Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SAT-ED) 
and TI-13-014, Cooperative Agreements for State Youth Treatment 
Enhancement and Dissemination (SYT-ED).
    The purpose of this program is to provide funding to States/
Territories/Tribes to improve treatment for adolescents and 
transitional age youth through the development of a learning laboratory 
with collaborating local community-based treatment provider sites. 
Through the shared experience between the State/Territory/Tribe and the 
local community-based treatment provider sites, an evidence-based 
practice (EBP) will be implemented, youth and families will be provided 
services, and a feedback loop will be developed to enable the State/
Territory/Tribe and the sites to identify barriers and test solutions 
through a services component operating in real time. The expected 
outcomes of these cooperative agreements will include needed changes to 
State/Territorial/Tribal policies and procedures; development of 
financing structures that work in the current environment; and a 
blueprint for States/Territories/Tribes and providers that can be used 
throughout the State/Territory/Tribe to widen the use of effective 
substance use treatment EBPs. Additionally, adolescents (ages 12 to 
18), transitional age youth (ages 18 to 24), and their families/primary 
caregivers who are provided services through grant funds will inform 
the process to improve systems issues.
    Estimates for response burden were calculated based on the 
methodology (survey data collection) being used and are based on 
previous experience collecting similar data and results of the pilot 
study. For emailed biannual surveys, burden estimates of 12.0 hours 
were used for Project Directors and/or Program Managers and burden 
estimates of 7.2 hours were used for other project staff members. It is 
estimated that 13 Project Directors and/or Program Managers and 26 
other staff members from Cohort 1 will respond to the emailed survey 
biannually (i.e., twice each year) for 3 years at an estimated total 
burden of 2,059.2 hours for Cohort 1. It is estimated that 10 Project 
Directors and/or Program Managers and 20 other staff members from 
Cohort 2 will respond to the emailed survey biannually (i.e., twice 
each year) for 5 years at an estimated total burden of 2,640 hours for 
Cohort 2. It is estimated that 12 Project Directors and/or Program 
Managers and 24 other staff members from Cohort 3 will respond to the 
emailed survey biannually (i.e., twice each year) for 5 years at an 
estimated total burden of 3,168 hours for Cohort 2. The burden hours of 
Cohort 1 (2,059.2 hours), Cohort 2 (2,640 hours) and Cohort 3 (3,168 
hours) combined comes to a total estimated burden for the emailed 
biannual survey of 7,867.2 hours.
