Gallatin Resource Advisory Committee, 49199-49200 [2015-20202]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 158 / Monday, August 17, 2015 / Notices (1) A focus on the critical problem of obesity—The program now has a wider range of evidence-based intervention strategies. Specifically, SNAP-Ed includes any combination of educational strategies, accompanied by environmental supports, designed to facilitate the voluntary adoption of healthy food and physical activity choices, as well as other nutritionrelated behaviors. It is conducive to the well-being of SNAP participants and other qualifying low-income individuals and may involve programs at complementary organizational and institutional levels in addition to community and public health approaches. (2) A target population which more closely aligns SNAP-Ed participants with those in other FNS, Federal, and State-administered benefit programs. In the past, SNAP-Ed participants included those receiving SNAP or those eligible to receive SNAP. Following the implementation of the HHFKA, the target population is extended to individuals who are eligible to receive SNAP or other means-tested Federal assistance programs or those residing in a community with a significant lowincome population. These means-tested programs include Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, among others. (3) Requirement for evidence-based interventions—Evidence-based approaches have been defined by the FNS Administrator in consultation with the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. FNS has provided States with more flexibility by permitting States to use funds for nutrition education and obesity prevention interventions that are developed by integrating the best available research evidence, practicebased evidence or emerging evidence. In accordance with the SNAP-Ed Guidance, these may include the implementation and measurement of policy, systems and environmental changes (PSEs). Expanding the types of environmental and policy approaches that can be used in SNAP-Ed allows State programs to build upon nutrition education and health promotion efforts in a way that better supports a more comprehensive focus on obesity prevention. (4) A new funding mechanism—As opposed to matching State funds for SNAP-Ed programs, FNS allocates 100 percent Federal grant funding to States, which may coordinate SNAP-Ed activities through partnerships with public and private entities in order to better leverage their financial resources. The formula proscribed by the HHFKA VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 Aug 14, 2015 Jkt 235001 builds progressively to a 50/50 weighting of SNAP-Ed expenditures to SNAP participation based on the funding from the previous 12-month period ending January 31. For Fiscal Year 2015, 80 percent of the funding was based on expenditures and 10 percent of the funding was based on the State’s SNAP participation rate. The 50/ 50 weighting applies to Fiscal Year 2018 and beyond. The revised form is available for review with this docket on www.Regulations.gov, in Supporting Documents. The proposed modifications to the current EARS form/worksheet include the following, where the items pertain to the proposed draft unless stated otherwise: • Collect data on the number and percentage of SNAP-Ed eligibles and those reached through Direct Education, Social Marketing and PSE change interventions in a State (Item 1a-e). • Collect data on the estimated percentage of SNAP-Ed funds expended to reach SNAP-Ed eligibles through the above intervention types (Item 1f). • Added a statement about the Community Eligibility Provision as a special circumstance for determining SNAP status (Items 2a and 2b). • Collect data on whether SNAP-Ed participation counts for each age group are actual or estimated values (Items 2a and 2b). • Collect data on additional settings where education is provided to SNAPEd participants (Item 5). • Collect data on whether Direct Education programs are part of a Social Marketing initiative (Item 6a). • Collect data on whether Direct Education supports PSEs (Item 6b). • Collect data on whether direct education programs are part of a social marketing and/or PSE interventions (Item 6a and 6b). • Removed question 8 on Indirect Education (on the current form) and added the column on ‘‘Source(s) of Data’’ to the table ‘‘Description of All Social Marketing Campaigns’’ (Item 7). • Collect data on PSEs (Item 8). • Collect data focused on classifying partnerships and their role in SNAP-Ed programs (Item 9). • Removed the last question on funding (Item 9 in the current form) since funds are now 100 percent federal allocations to States according to a specified formula and do not require a State match. The form has been rearranged to better accommodate the instructions and improve the flow of questions. This revision also reflects an increase in burden estimates. FNS estimates that 53 State agencies will respond once a year PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49199 for a total of 53 annual responses. The current burden it takes each State agency to respond is 54 burden hours. In the revised data collection instrument, it will take approximately 60 burden hours for each State agency to respond which reflects an increase of six burden hours per State from the last submission. The current burden for this collection is 2,808. FNS calculates the revised total burden for this collection is 3,180 annual burden hours which reflects an increase of 300 burden hours due to program changes and adjustments. There are no recordkeeping requirements imposed by this information collection. As this is a revision to the EARS form within the FPRS system, the total FPRS burden is summarized below. Affected Public: SNAP State agencies and Business. Respondent Type: Businesses are identified as non-profit organizations serving as implementing partners, such as extension universities, and local program operators. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,267. Number of Responses per Respondent: 7.28191. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 23,790. Hours per Response: 3.65157629. Total Annual Burden Hours (Reporting Only): 86,871. Dated: August 2, 2015. Audrey Rowe, Administrator, Food and Nutrition Service.
