Proposed Project: Now Is the Time (NITT)—Project AWARE Evaluation— Site Notification and Recruitment— New SAMHSA is conducting a national evaluation of the Now is the Time (NITT) initiative, which includes separate programs—NITT Project AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education)—State Educational Agency (SEA), Healthy Transitions, and two Minority Fellowship Programs (Youth and Addictions Counselors). These programs are united by their focus on capacity building, system change, and workforce development. NITT—Project AWARE, which is the focus of this activity, represents a response to the third and fourth components of President Obama’s NITT Initiative: Making schools safer and focusing on access to mental health services. NITT—Project AWARE is authorized under section 520A of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, and addresses the Healthy People 2020 Mental Health and Mental Disorders Topic Area. Project AWARE grantees are required to provide mental health awareness training to adults who interact with youth, create partnerships to connect youth to mental health services, and create a school climate to reduce violence. NITT—Project AWARE grants were made to 20 state education agencies, each of which will partner with 3–5 local education agencies (LEAs or school districts) in their state to plan and implement Project AWARE activities. Project AWARE activities may be implemented in all schools in the district or may be focused on a specific type or number of schools. The evaluation of NITT—Project AWARE will examine the process, outcomes, and impact of activities by SEA grantees and their LEA and school partners. The study will evaluate the capacity of SEAs to increase awareness of mental health issues among schoolaged youth; provide training for school personnel and other adults who interact with youth to detect and respond to mental illness in children and young adults; connect children, youth, and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Sep 28, 2015 Jkt 235001 families/caregivers who may have behavioral health issues with appropriate services; and improve conditions for learning and behavioral health outcomes for all school-aged youth (grades K–12). At the grantee, district, and school levels, the evaluation will collect data from key staff in all partner organizations. At each Project AWARE and comparison school, annual surveys will be used to collect data from the school principal (or designee), students, and teachers, beginning in spring 2016. The NITT— Project AWARE evaluation will also rely on information collected from existing sources or noted in award requirements. Site notification and recruitment of Project AWARE grantees and their school and district partners is being conducted for the purpose of enlisting sites for participation in the Project AWARE component of the NITT evaluation. Site notification and recruitment will be conducted in school year 2015–2016. Data collection is planned to begin in spring 2016. Subsequent OMB packages will be submitted separately for each of the three program evaluations (i.e., Project AWARE, Healthy Transitions, MFP— Youth & Addiction Counselors) in fall 2015, requesting approval for instruments and data collection procedures. Current activities are focused on notification and recruitment of state grantees, grantee and nongrantee districts, and grantee and nongrantee schools. Each grantee state will be asked to support the evaluation by encouraging the grantee districts to cooperate with the national evaluation contractor when contacted, enlist the participation of grantee schools, and provide access to data available through the district’s management information system (MIS). Each grantee district will also be asked to assist the study with identifying and encouraging the participation of comparison (i.e, nongrantee) schools, where possible. For each treatment (i.e., Project AWARE) school, one matched comparison school will be identified that is similar to the treatment school in terms of demographic characteristics and rates of incidents of violence and other measures but is not implementing Project AWARE activities. Both treatment and comparison schools will PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58497 be asked to participate in the school, teacher, and student surveys (teachers and students) and data abstraction from the schools’ MIS system. If a comparison school cannot be identified or recruited from the same grantee district as the treatment school, an attempt will be made to recruit nongrantee districts and schools in a neighboring community where potential matched schools have been identified. During site notification and recruitment, the evaluation contractor will send packets that include a letter, brochure, and frequently asked questions, and will follow up with a telephone call. The following entities will be contacted: • All 20 NITT—Project AWARE grantees at the state level • An estimated 90 local education agency partners (3–5 districts per state, under the grant requirements) • An estimated 396 schools in grantee districts that will be implementing Project AWARE activities (‘‘treatment schools’’) (approximately 4–5 schools per grantee district are expected to participate in the evaluation). This estimate includes additional schools that may need to be contacted to replace grantee schools that are unable or unwilling to participate. • An estimated 432 schools in grantee districts that are NOT currently implementing Project AWARE activities (‘‘comparison schools’’). This estimate includes additional schools that may need to be contacted to replace comparison schools that are unable or unwilling to participate. • Approximately 30 nongrantee districts will be identified and recruited as needed if no comparison school is available in a grantee district to form a matched pair with a treatment school. • Approximately 90 comparison schools in nongrantee districts will be identified and recruited as needed to form a matched pair for treatment schools with no comparison school available. For each treatment school without a comparison school, one best match and two alternates will be identified in each of the 30 districts.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is once again seeking nominations and expressions of interest for membership on the Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program Advisory Panel (P25 CAP AP). DHS is providing the public with additional time to submit nominations because it wants to ensure that it has a broad and qualified pool of candidates to select from for the benefit of the program and its stakeholders. DHS previously made this request through the Federal Register (Docket No. DHS–2015–0041). DHS understands that the previous notice may have provided insufficient time for some to obtain the necessary components for a qualifying nomination package. The activities of the P25 CAP AP are expected to commence in fall 2015. P25 is a standard which enables interoperability among digital two-way land mobile radio communications products created by and for public asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Sep 28, 2015 Jkt 235001 safety professionals. P25 CAP is a formal, independent process, created by DHS and operated in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), for ensuring that communications equipment that is declared by the supplier to be P25 compliant, in fact, is tested against the standards with publicly published results. The P25 CAP AP would provide a resource by which DHS could gain insight into the collective interest of organizations that procure P25compliant equipment and a resource in DHS’s continuing to establish the policies of the P25 CAP along with assisting the DHS Office for Interoperability and Compatibility (OIC) in the administration of the Program. DATES: All responses must be received within 15 days from the date of this notice at the address listed below. ADDRESSES: Expressions of interest and nominations should be submitted to SandTFRG@hq.dhs.gov. • Instructions: All submissions received must include the words ‘‘Department of Homeland Security’’ and DHS–2015–0064, the docket number for this action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: P25 standard enables interoperability among different suppliers’ products. P25 CAP was developed by DHS and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to test equipment designed to comply with P25 standards. The program provides public safety agencies with evidence that the communications equipment they are purchasing is tested against and complies with the P25 standards for performance, conformance, and interoperability. P25 CAP is a voluntary system that provides a mechanism for the recognition of testing laboratories based on internationally accepted standards. It identifies competent P25 CAP testing laboratories for DHS-recognition through assessments by DHS-authorized accreditation bodies and promotes the acceptance of compliant test results from these laboratories. As a voluntary program, P25 CAP allows suppliers to publicly attest to their products’ compliance with a selected group of requirements through Summary Test Report (STR) and Supplier’s Declaration of Compliance (SDOC) documents based on the Detailed Test Report (DTR) from the DHS-recognized laboratory (ies) that performed the product testing. In turn, P25 CAP makes these documents available to the first response community to inform their purchasing decisions via the FirstResponder.gov/ P25CAP Web site. Background TIA–102/Project 25 (P25) is a standards development process for the design, manufacture, and evaluation of interoperable digital two-way land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. The goal of P25 is to specify formal standards for interfaces and features between the various components of a land mobile radio system commonly used by public safety agencies in portable handheld and mobile vehicle-mounted devices. The Membership The Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) of the DHS is forming the P25 CAP Advisory Panel to provide S&T with the views of active local, state, tribal, territorial and Federal government officials who use or whose offices use portable handheld and mobile vehicle-mounted radios.

Proposed Project: Now Is the Time (NITT)--Project AWARE Evaluation--
Site Notification and Recruitment--New

    SAMHSA is conducting a national evaluation of the Now is the Time 
(NITT) initiative, which includes separate programs--NITT Project AWARE 
(Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education)--State Educational 
Agency (SEA), Healthy Transitions, and two Minority Fellowship Programs 
(Youth and Addictions Counselors). These programs are united by their 
focus on capacity building, system change, and workforce development.
    NITT--Project AWARE, which is the focus of this activity, 
represents a response to the third and fourth components of President 
Obama's NITT Initiative: Making schools safer and focusing on access to 
mental health services. NITT--Project AWARE is authorized under section 
520A of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, and addresses the 
Healthy People 2020 Mental Health and Mental Disorders Topic Area. 
Project AWARE grantees are required to provide mental health awareness 
training to adults who interact with youth, create partnerships to 
connect youth to mental health services, and create a school climate to 
reduce violence. NITT--Project AWARE grants were made to 20 state 
education agencies, each of which will partner with 3-5 local education 
agencies (LEAs or school districts) in their state to plan and 
implement Project AWARE activities. Project AWARE activities may be 
implemented in all schools in the district or may be focused on a 
specific type or number of schools.
    The evaluation of NITT--Project AWARE will examine the process, 
outcomes, and impact of activities by SEA grantees and their LEA and 
school partners. The study will evaluate the capacity of SEAs to 
increase awareness of mental health issues among school-aged youth; 
provide training for school personnel and other adults who interact 
with youth to detect and respond to mental illness in children and 
young adults; connect children, youth, and families/caregivers who may 
have behavioral health issues with appropriate services; and improve 
conditions for learning and behavioral health outcomes for all school-
aged youth (grades K-12). At the grantee, district, and school levels, 
the evaluation will collect data from key staff in all partner 
organizations. At each Project AWARE and comparison school, annual 
surveys will be used to collect data from the school principal (or 
designee), students, and teachers, beginning in spring 2016. The NITT--
Project AWARE evaluation will also rely on information collected from 
existing sources or noted in award requirements.
    Site notification and recruitment of Project AWARE grantees and 
their school and district partners is being conducted for the purpose 
of enlisting sites for participation in the Project AWARE component of 
the NITT evaluation. Site notification and recruitment will be 
conducted in school year 2015-2016. Data collection is planned to begin 
in spring 2016. Subsequent OMB packages will be submitted separately 
for each of the three program evaluations (i.e., Project AWARE, Healthy 
Transitions, MFP--Youth & Addiction Counselors) in fall 2015, 
requesting approval for instruments and data collection procedures.
    Current activities are focused on notification and recruitment of 
state grantees, grantee and nongrantee districts, and grantee and 
nongrantee schools. Each grantee state will be asked to support the 
evaluation by encouraging the grantee districts to cooperate with the 
national evaluation contractor when contacted, enlist the participation 
of grantee schools, and provide access to data available through the 
district's management information system (MIS). Each grantee district 
will also be asked to assist the study with identifying and encouraging 
the participation of comparison (i.e, nongrantee) schools, where 
possible. For each treatment (i.e., Project AWARE) school, one matched 
comparison school will be identified that is similar to the treatment 
school in terms of demographic characteristics and rates of incidents 
of violence and other measures but is not implementing Project AWARE 
activities. Both treatment and comparison schools will be asked to 
participate in the school, teacher, and student surveys (teachers and 
students) and data abstraction from the schools' MIS system.
    If a comparison school cannot be identified or recruited from the 
same grantee district as the treatment school, an attempt will be made 
to recruit nongrantee districts and schools in a neighboring community 
where potential matched schools have been identified.
    During site notification and recruitment, the evaluation contractor 
will send packets that include a letter, brochure, and frequently asked 
questions, and will follow up with a telephone call. The following 
entities will be contacted:
     All 20 NITT--Project AWARE grantees at the state level
     An estimated 90 local education agency partners (3-5 
districts per state, under the grant requirements)
     An estimated 396 schools in grantee districts that will be 
implementing Project AWARE activities (``treatment schools'') 
(approximately 4-5 schools per grantee district are expected to 
participate in the evaluation). This estimate includes additional 
schools that may need to be contacted to replace grantee schools that 
are unable or unwilling to participate.
     An estimated 432 schools in grantee districts that are NOT 
currently implementing Project AWARE activities (``comparison 
schools''). This estimate includes additional schools that may need to 
be contacted to replace comparison schools that are unable or unwilling 
to participate.
     Approximately 30 nongrantee districts will be identified 
and recruited as needed if no comparison school is available in a 
grantee district to form a matched pair with a treatment school.
     Approximately 90 comparison schools in nongrantee 
districts will be identified and recruited as needed to form a matched 
pair for treatment schools with no comparison school available. For 
each treatment school without a comparison school, one best match and 
two alternates will be identified in each of the 30 districts.
    The table below summarizes the reporting burden associated with 
this notification and recruitment activity. The total burden is 1,058 
hours.
