Background: Due to advances in treatment, more and more persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) can live long and healthy lives. Many PLWHA also have the desire, capability, and stamina to contribute to the workforce. Employment provides economic, social, and psychological benefits. Research suggests that for many PLWHA, employment, like stable housing, can be positively associated with improved physical and mental health, and it may also serve as a preventative measure to the spread of HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS service providers are recognizing that employment is a key component of serving the whole person. Some are integrating employment assistance, in a variety of forms, into their service menus. To effectively provide such services, it is important that providers understand HIV/AIDS in the context of employment. There are different approaches to helping clients who are ready to work identify and achieve their related goals. The goal of Getting to Work: A Training Curriculum for HIV/AIDS Service Providers and Housing Providers (Getting to Work or GTW) is to increase the capacity of service providers to enhance opportunities for employment and retention of PLWHA and/or those at risk of living with HIV/AIDS. In the fall of 2013, ODEP contracted with the IMPAQ team to conduct this study to address the following questions: 1. What knowledge did the training participants (individuals) acquire about HIV/AIDS and employment? 2. What new attitudes, behavior, or actions related to employing PLWHA did training participants (individuals) develop? 3. What longer-term individual and organizational changes occurred related to HIV/AIDS and employment as a result of participating in the training? ODEP requests clearance to conduct, through the IMPAQ team, two principal research activities: D Web-based survey of all GTW trainees (approximately 1,000 individuals who are staff or managers of housing providers) D 8 focus groups of housing provider staff and management This information collection is being conducted by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), which was authorized by Congress in the Department of Labor’s FY 2001 appropriation. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Aug 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 The survey of trainees will take place over a period of approximately four months. The survey will be administered to all individuals who complete the GTW training. The survey will be administered via the web and recipients will be notified about the survey by mail, with email reminders. Each survey will take about 30 minutes, on average, to complete, and an 80% response rate is expected. All on-site data collection (focus groups) will take place over a period of approximately four months. Focus groups will be conducted at 8 housing provider facilities. Each focus group will involve approximately 9 customers in each group, and reasonable accommodations for disabilities will be provided for all attending participants, as needed. Focus groups will last approximately 90 minutes and all participants will receive $30 for their attendance. II. Desired Focus of Comments: Currently, the Department of Labor is soliciting comments concerning the above data collection for the Evaluation of GTW. Comments are requested to: D Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; D evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; D enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and D minimize the burden of the information collection on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. III. Current Actions: At this time, the Department of Labor is requesting comments on its proposal to conduct (1) one survey of all GTW trainees, (2) focus groups with trainees at 8 housing provider facilities, for the Evaluation of GTW.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    I. Background: Due to advances in treatment, more and more persons 
living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) can live long and healthy lives. Many 
PLWHA also have the desire, capability, and stamina to contribute to 
the workforce. Employment provides economic, social, and psychological 
benefits. Research suggests that for many PLWHA, employment, like 
stable housing, can be positively associated with improved physical and 
mental health, and it may also serve as a preventative measure to the 
spread of HIV/AIDS.
    HIV/AIDS service providers are recognizing that employment is a key 
component of serving the whole person. Some are integrating employment 
assistance, in a variety of forms, into their service menus. To 
effectively provide such services, it is important that providers 
understand HIV/AIDS in the context of employment. There are different 
approaches to helping clients who are ready to work identify and 
achieve their related goals. The goal of Getting to Work: A Training 
Curriculum for HIV/AIDS Service Providers and Housing Providers 
(Getting to Work or GTW) is to increase the capacity of service 
providers to enhance opportunities for employment and retention of 
PLWHA and/or those at risk of living with HIV/AIDS.
    In the fall of 2013, ODEP contracted with the IMPAQ team to conduct 
this study to address the following questions:
    1. What knowledge did the training participants (individuals) 
acquire about HIV/AIDS and employment?
    2. What new attitudes, behavior, or actions related to employing 
PLWHA did training participants (individuals) develop?
    3. What longer-term individual and organizational changes occurred 
related to HIV/AIDS and employment as a result of participating in the 
training?
    ODEP requests clearance to conduct, through the IMPAQ team, two 
principal research activities:

[ssquf] Web-based survey of all GTW trainees (approximately 1,000 
individuals who are staff or managers of housing providers)
[ssquf] 8 focus groups of housing provider staff and management

    This information collection is being conducted by the Office of 
Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), which was authorized by Congress 
in the Department of Labor's FY 2001 appropriation.
    The survey of trainees will take place over a period of 
approximately four months. The survey will be administered to all 
individuals who complete the GTW training. The survey will be 
administered via the web and recipients will be notified about the 
survey by mail, with email reminders. Each survey will take about 30 
minutes, on average, to complete, and an 80% response rate is expected.
    All on-site data collection (focus groups) will take place over a 
period of approximately four months. Focus groups will be conducted at 
8 housing provider facilities. Each focus group will involve 
approximately 9 customers in each group, and reasonable accommodations 
for disabilities will be provided for all attending participants, as 
needed. Focus groups will last approximately 90 minutes and all 
participants will receive $30 for their attendance.
    II. Desired Focus of Comments: Currently, the Department of Labor 
is soliciting comments concerning the above data collection for the 
Evaluation of GTW. Comments are requested to:
    [ssquf] Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    [ssquf] evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
    [ssquf] enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    [ssquf] minimize the burden of the information collection on those 
who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.
    III. Current Actions: At this time, the Department of Labor is 
requesting comments on its proposal to conduct (1) one survey of all 
GTW trainees, (2) focus groups with trainees at 8 housing provider 
facilities, for the Evaluation of GTW.
    Type of review: New information collection request.
