AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. In compliance with the requirement for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects (Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announces plans to submit an Information Collection Request (ICR), described below, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Prior to submitting the ICR to OMB, HRSA seeks comments from the public regarding the burden estimate, below, or any other aspect of the ICR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 45815 Information Collection Request Title: Information/Referral and Professional Training Surveys (OMB No. 0915–xxxx)—[New] Abstract: These surveys are designed to collect information from recipients of information/referral services and professional training provided by the following two HRSA-funded programs: (1) Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Implementation Partnership Grants and (2) Protection and Advocacy for TBI Grants. Additionally, grant recipients administering these surveys will submit a summary report aggregating the responses from these two surveys. The authority for this program is the Public Health Service Act, Title XII, Section 1252, as amended (42 U.S.C. 300d–52). Per the authorizing legislation, the intent of these programs is to improve access to rehabilitation and other services regarding traumatic brain injury. The HRSA State Implementation Partnership Grants and State Protection and Advocacy Grants support this charge by providing information to individuals with TBI and their families about TBI, and making referrals to local providers equipped to meet the unique needs of each survivor. Additionally, these grant programs train providers in various settings to identify and effectively serve individuals with TBI and their families. Individuals with TBI present with a host of different symptoms, which exist with varying levels of severity. Comprehensive, appropriate care often requires a variety of services such as physical rehabilitation, speech rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation, special education accommodations, vocational skills coaching, and independent living skills training. These services are often located across many state/local agencies and providers. For this reason, individuals with TBI and their family members often have difficulty identifying local providers with the skills and expertise to deliver services that will promote recovery and maximize independence. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA proposes that the data collection surveys be administered by grant recipients to individuals with TBI, their family members, and professional providers for two categories of activities—information/referral services and professional training. These surveys were developed to capture the following: (1) The effectiveness of information and referral services provided to individuals with TBI and their family members, and (2) the effectiveness of training about TBI for professionals who may encounter E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1 45816 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 151 / Wednesday, August 6, 2014 / Notices individuals with TBI in their work roles. In addition to providing uniform data across these grant programs, the data will help determine what efforts might improve outreach and provision of services for future projects. Grantees will report the data to HRSA in an annual summary report. Likely Respondents: Individuals with TBI, their family members, and professional providers in various settings will be the likely respondents for these surveys. Recipients of both the State Implementation Partnership Grants and the Protection and Advocacy Grants programs will be the respondents for the summary report. 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Information/Referral and 
Professional Training Surveys

(OMB No. 0915-xxxx)--[New]

    Abstract: These surveys are designed to collect information from 
recipients of information/referral services and professional training 
provided by the following two HRSA-funded programs: (1) Traumatic Brain 
Injury (TBI) State Implementation Partnership Grants and (2) Protection 
and Advocacy for TBI Grants. Additionally, grant recipients 
administering these surveys will submit a summary report aggregating 
the responses from these two surveys.
    The authority for this program is the Public Health Service Act, 
Title XII, Section 1252, as amended (42 U.S.C. 300d-52). Per the 
authorizing legislation, the intent of these programs is to improve 
access to rehabilitation and other services regarding traumatic brain 
injury. The HRSA State Implementation Partnership Grants and State 
Protection and Advocacy Grants support this charge by providing 
information to individuals with TBI and their families about TBI, and 
making referrals to local providers equipped to meet the unique needs 
of each survivor. Additionally, these grant programs train providers in 
various settings to identify and effectively serve individuals with TBI 
and their families.
    Individuals with TBI present with a host of different symptoms, 
which exist with varying levels of severity. Comprehensive, appropriate 
care often requires a variety of services such as physical 
rehabilitation, speech rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation, 
special education accommodations, vocational skills coaching, and 
independent living skills training. These services are often located 
across many state/local agencies and providers. For this reason, 
individuals with TBI and their family members often have difficulty 
identifying local providers with the skills and expertise to deliver 
services that will promote recovery and maximize independence.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA proposes that the 
data collection surveys be administered by grant recipients to 
individuals with TBI, their family members, and professional providers 
for two categories of activities--information/referral services and 
professional training. These surveys were developed to capture the 
following: (1) The effectiveness of information and referral services 
provided to individuals with TBI and their family members, and (2) the 
effectiveness of training about TBI for professionals who may encounter

individuals with TBI in their work roles. In addition to providing 
uniform data across these grant programs, the data will help determine 
what efforts might improve outreach and provision of services for 
future projects. Grantees will report the data to HRSA in an annual 
summary report.
    Likely Respondents: Individuals with TBI, their family members, and 
professional providers in various settings will be the likely 
respondents for these surveys. Recipients of both the State 
Implementation Partnership Grants and the Protection and Advocacy 
Grants programs will be the respondents for the summary report.
    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. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below.
