Download as PDF 80784 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 248 / Monday, December 28, 2015 / Notices increasing the number of culturally competent master’s level behavioral health professionals and addiction counselors serving children, adolescents, and populations in transition to adulthood (ages 16–25) in an effort to increase access to, and quality of, behavioral health care for these age groups. The NITT–MFP— Youth program funded five grantees to each support up to 48 master’s level fellows per year committed to addressing the behavioral health needs of at risk children, adolescents, and transition-age youth (ages 16–25). The NITT–MFP—Addiction Counselors program funded two grantees to each support up to 30 master’s level fellows per year in their final year of addiction counseling university programs, with a focus on providing culturally sensitive addiction counseling to underserved youth in the 16–25 age group. The NITT–MFP evaluation is designed to assess the level of success of the grantees in meeting the programs’ goals and identify the factors that contribute to differences among grantees in levels of success. The evaluation includes both process and outcome evaluation components and will be supported by the data collection efforts described below. The information to be collected is necessary to (a) assess the effectiveness of the grantees’ program recruitment strategies, (b) describe the services that the programs offer, and (c) assess whether NITT–MFP is meeting its goal of increasing the skilled workforce by increasing the number of behavioral health providers and addiction counselors providing services to underserved children, adolescents, and transition-age youth, particularly among racially/ethnically diverse populations. About 4 to 5 months after completion of their fellowship, a subset of fellow alumni will be asked to participate in the NITT–MFP Fellow Interview. These telephone interviews will collect detailed qualitative information on fellows’ experiences that are not possible to collect in a survey. The interview is timed to collect fellows’ impressions of their fellowship experiences before too much time has passed, as well as their initial labor market outcomes. The information collected will be used to assess the NITT–MFP program factors associated with employment and other postfellowship outcomes. The interviewees will be asked to describe (1) their program, how they learned about it, and what led them to apply; (2) the effects of the program on their interest in working with at risk children, adolescents, and transition age youth from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds (and for MFP–AC fellows, in the area of addiction counseling); (3) whether the program improved their understanding of and ability to provide culturally competent services; (4) whether they completed their fellowship and the effects of the stipend on their education and career; (5) their current employment setting, and, if in behavior health services, the characteristics of their client population; (6) the role that their fellowship played in their job interests and job search; and (7) their satisfaction with the fellowship program and assessment of its impact on their career and professional activities. A maximum of 66 fellow alumni are expected to complete the NITT–MFP Fellow Interview per year; respondents will complete the telephone interview one time.

Project: Violence Intervention To Enrich Lives (VITEL) Supplement— NEW This data collection is to study the intersection of intimate partner violence (IPV) and trauma for women with HIV, at risk for HIV, and at risk for substance use disorders (SUDs) VITEL provides supplemental funding to existing SAMHSA Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/ Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE–HIV: Minority Women) grantees. These activities will be conducted with five grantees and include: (1) Administration of baseline, discharge and 6-month post-baseline surveys of clients receiving IPV screening and referral services, (2) focus groups with clients receiving IPV and SUD services, (3) documentation of IPV service and other referral service(s) engagement, and (4) semi-structured PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 interviews with VITEL program staff and partner/collaborating staff supporting IPV services. The goals of the VITEL program are (1) reduce IPV through screening and referrals, (2) reduce risky behaviors that lead to new HIV infections and SUDs, (3) increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV and AIDS, (4) reduce HIV-related health disparities resultant from IPV screening tool implementation, and (5) determine the feasibility of integrating IPV screening in behavioral health settings. A multi-stage approach has been used to develop the appropriate theoretical framework, conceptual model, evaluation design and protocols, and data collection instrumentation. Process and outcome measures have been developed to fully capture community and contextual conditions, the scope of the VITEL program implementation and activities, and client outcomes.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information 
collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these

Project: Violence Intervention To Enrich Lives (VITEL) Supplement--NEW

    This data collection is to study the intersection of intimate 
partner violence (IPV) and trauma for women with HIV, at risk for HIV, 
and at risk for substance use disorders (SUDs) VITEL provides 
supplemental funding to existing SAMHSA Targeted Capacity Expansion: 
Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk 
for HIV/AIDS (TCE-HIV: Minority Women) grantees. These activities will 
be conducted with five grantees and include: (1) Administration of 
baseline, discharge and 6-month post-baseline surveys of clients 
receiving IPV screening and referral services, (2) focus groups with 
clients receiving IPV and SUD services, (3) documentation of IPV 
service and other referral service(s) engagement, and (4) semi-
structured interviews with VITEL program staff and partner/
collaborating staff supporting IPV services.
    The goals of the VITEL program are (1) reduce IPV through screening 
and referrals, (2) reduce risky behaviors that lead to new HIV 
infections and SUDs, (3) increase access to care and improve health 
outcomes for people living with HIV and AIDS, (4) reduce HIV-related 
health disparities resultant from IPV screening tool implementation, 
and (5) determine the feasibility of integrating IPV screening in 
behavioral health settings. A multi-stage approach has been used to 
develop the appropriate theoretical framework, conceptual model, 
evaluation design and protocols, and data collection instrumentation. 
Process and outcome measures have been developed to fully capture 
community and contextual conditions, the scope of the VITEL program 
implementation and activities, and client outcomes. A mixed-method 
approach (e.g., surveys, semi-structured interviews, focus groups) will 
be used, for example, to examine collaborative

[[Page 80785]]

community linkages established between grantees and other service 
providers (e.g., primary health care, SUD recovery), determine which 
program models and what type and amount of client exposure to services 
contribute to significant changes in IPV, SUD, and HIV risk behaviors 
of the targeted populations, and determine the impact of VITEL services 
on providers, clients, and communities.
    The data collection for this program will be conducted quarterly 
(during this one year supplemental period) and the client outcome data 
collection will be ongoing throughout the program and will be collected 
at baseline, discharge and 6-months post baseline for all treatment 
clients. The respondents are clinic-based social workers, counselors, 
administrators, and clinic-based clients.
