Project: Quarterly Progress Reporting and Annual Indirect Services Outcome Data Collection for the Minority Substance Abuse/HIV Prevention Program (MAI)—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of quarterly progress information and annual community-level outcome data from CSAP’s Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) programs. This data collection effort supports two of SAMHSA’s 6 Strategic Initiatives: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness and Health Care and Health Systems Integration. The grantees funded by the MAI and included in this clearance request are: • Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) in Partnerships with Community-Based Organizations (CBO): 84 grantees funded up to three years; • Capacity Building Initiative (CBI): 74 grantees funded up to five years.

MSI CBO grantees are required to provide integrated substance abuse (SA), Hepatitis C (HCV), and HIV prevention services to young adults. The CBI grantees are community-level domestic, public and private nonprofit entities, federally recognized American Indian/ Alaska Native Tribes and tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations. CBI grantees will use grant funds for building a solid infrastructure for integrated SA, HIV, and HCV prevention service provision and implementing evidence-based prevention interventions using SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) process. The target population for the CBI grantees will be at-risk minority adolescents and young adults. All MAI grantees are expected to provide leadership and coordination on the planning and implementation of the SPF and to target minority populations, as well as other high risk groups residing in communities of color with high prevalence of SA and HIV/AIDS. The MAI grantees are expected to provide an effective prevention process, direction, and a common set of goals, expectations, and accountabilities to be adapted and integrated at the community level. Grantees have substantial flexibility in choosing their individual evidence-based programs, but must base this selection on and build it into the five steps of the SPF. These SPF steps consist of assessing local needs, building service capacity specific to SA and HIV prevention services, developing a strategic prevention plan, implementing evidence-based interventions, and evaluating their outcomes. Grantees are also required to provide HIV and HCV testing and counseling services and referrals to appropriate treatment options. Grantees must also conduct ongoing monitoring and evaluation of their projects to assess program effectiveness including Federal reporting of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, The GPRA Modernization Act of 2010, SAMHSA/CSAP National Outcome Measures (NOMs), and the Department of Health and Human Services Core HIV Indicators. The primary objectives of this data collection effort are to: • Ensure the correct implementation of the five steps of the SPF process by maintaining a continuous feedback loop between grantees and their POs; • Promptly respond to grantees’ needs for training and technical assistance; PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4325 • Assess the fidelity with which the SPF is implemented; • Collect aggregate data on HIV testing to fulfill SAMHSA’s reporting and accountability obligations as defined by the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act (GPRA Modernization Act) and HHS’s HIV Core Measures; • Assess the success of the MAI in reducing risk factors and increasing protective factors associated with the transmission of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and other sexually-transmitted diseases (STD); • Measure the effectiveness of evidence-based programs and infrastructure development activities such as: Outreach and training, mobilization of key stakeholders, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS counseling and education, testing, referrals to appropriate medical treatment, and other intervention strategies (e. g., cultural enrichment activities, educational and vocational resources, motivational interviewing & brief interventions, social marketing, and computer-based curricula); • Investigate intervention types and features that produce the best outcomes for specific population groups; • Assess the extent to which access to health care was enhanced for population groups and individuals vulnerable to behavioral health disparities residing in communities targeted by funded interventions; These objectives support the four primary goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy which are: (1) Reducing new HIV infections, (2) increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV/AIDS, (3) reducing HIV-related disparities and health inequities, and (4) achieving a coordinated national response to the HIV epidemic.

Data on HIV/ HCV testing and hepatitis vaccination are reported only in the aggregate (e. g. numbers tested and percent of tests that were positive). No individual-level information is collected through this instrument. The Indirect Services Outcomes Data Tool collects annual data on community-level outcome measures. These data typically come from existing sources such as ongoing community surveys and administrative data collected by local agencies and institutions such as law enforcement, school districts, college campuses, hospitals, and health departments. The data are submitted to SAMHSA in the form of community-level averages, percentages, or rates, and are used to assess the grantees’ success in changing community norms, policies, practices, and systems through environmental strategies and information dissemination activities. As with the QPR, no individual-level information is collected through this instrument. The third data collection instrument for which approval is being sought is intended to collect FY 2015 data on the HIV testing activities of the grantees. It will be used once only, immediately after the system goes online, in order to collect data for two of the seven HHS Core Indicators that SAMHSA/CSAP has agreed to report. Although this statement refers to it as a separate instrument for purposes of clarity in burden estimation, it has the same data fields as the HIV Testing Implementation section of the main Quarterly Progress Report tool and differs only in its reporting timeframe Although the main purpose of this data collection effort is to provide a standard and efficient system for SAMHSA’s project officers to maintain a feedback loop with the grantees that they manage and to respond to training and technical assistance needs in a timely fashion, the data will also be incorporated into the national cross-site evaluation. By combining this granteelevel implementation information and community-level outcome data with participant-level pre-post data, SAMHSA will be able to identify interventions and intervention combinations that produce the most favorable outcomes at the individual and community levels, and to investigate the interaction between participant- and grantee-level factors in predicting positive outcomes. Respondent burden has been limited to the extent possible while allowing SAMHSA project officers to effectively manage, monitor, and provide sufficient guidance to their grantees, and for the cross-site evaluation to reliably assess program outcomes and successful strategies.

Project: Quarterly Progress Reporting and Annual Indirect Services 
Outcome Data Collection for the Minority Substance Abuse/HIV Prevention 
Program (MAI)--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the 
collection of quarterly progress information and annual community-level 
outcome data from CSAP's Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) programs.
    This data collection effort supports two of SAMHSA's 6 Strategic 
Initiatives: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness and 
Health Care and Health Systems Integration. The grantees funded by the 
MAI and included in this clearance request are:
     Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) in Partnerships with 
Community-Based Organizations (CBO): 84 grantees funded up to three 
years;
     Capacity Building Initiative (CBI): 74 grantees funded up 
to five years.
    MSI CBO grantees are Historically Black Colleges/Universities, 
Hispanic Serving Institutions, American Pacific Islander Serving 
Institutions, or Tribal Colleges/Universities in partnership with 
community based organizations in their surrounding communities. MSI CBO 
grantees are required to provide integrated substance abuse (SA), 
Hepatitis C (HCV), and HIV prevention services to young adults. The CBI 
grantees are community-level domestic, public and private nonprofit 
entities, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native Tribes and 
tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations. CBI grantees will 
use grant funds for building a solid infrastructure for integrated SA, 
HIV, and HCV prevention service provision and implementing evidence-
based prevention interventions using SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention 
Framework (SPF) process. The target population for the CBI grantees 
will be at-risk minority adolescents and young adults. All MAI grantees 
are expected to provide leadership and coordination on the planning and 
implementation of the SPF and to target minority populations, as well 
as other high risk groups residing in communities of color with high 
prevalence of SA and HIV/AIDS.
    The MAI grantees are expected to provide an effective prevention 
process, direction, and a common set of goals, expectations, and 
accountabilities to be adapted and integrated at the community level. 
Grantees have substantial flexibility in choosing their individual 
evidence-based programs, but must base this selection on and build it 
into the five steps of the SPF. These SPF steps consist of assessing 
local needs, building service capacity specific to SA and HIV 
prevention services, developing a strategic prevention plan, 
implementing evidence-based interventions, and evaluating their 
outcomes. Grantees are also required to provide HIV and HCV testing and 
counseling services and referrals to appropriate treatment options. 
Grantees must also conduct ongoing monitoring and evaluation of their 
projects to assess program effectiveness including Federal reporting of 
the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993, The GPRA 
Modernization Act of 2010, SAMHSA/CSAP National Outcome Measures 
(NOMs), and the Department of Health and Human Services Core HIV 
Indicators.
    The primary objectives of this data collection effort are to:
     Ensure the correct implementation of the five steps of the 
SPF process by maintaining a continuous feedback loop between grantees 
and their POs;
     Promptly respond to grantees' needs for training and 
technical assistance;
     Assess the fidelity with which the SPF is implemented;
     Collect aggregate data on HIV testing to fulfill SAMHSA's 
reporting and accountability obligations as defined by the Government 
Performance and Results Modernization Act (GPRA Modernization Act) and 
HHS's HIV Core Measures;
     Assess the success of the MAI in reducing risk factors and 
increasing protective factors associated with the transmission of the 
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and other 
sexually-transmitted diseases (STD);
     Measure the effectiveness of evidence-based programs and 
infrastructure development activities such as: Outreach and training, 
mobilization of key stakeholders, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS 
counseling and education, testing, referrals to appropriate medical 
treatment, and other intervention strategies (e. g., cultural 
enrichment activities, educational and vocational resources, 
motivational interviewing & brief interventions, social marketing, and 
computer-based curricula);
     Investigate intervention types and features that produce 
the best outcomes for specific population groups;
     Assess the extent to which access to health care was 
enhanced for population groups and individuals vulnerable to behavioral 
health disparities residing in communities targeted by funded 
interventions;
    These objectives support the four primary goals of the National 
HIV/AIDS Strategy which are: (1) Reducing new HIV infections, (2) 
increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people 
living with HIV/AIDS, (3) reducing HIV-related disparities and health 
inequities, and (4) achieving a coordinated national response to the 
HIV epidemic.

quarter progress reports. Data on HIV/HCV testing and hepatitis 
vaccination are reported only in the aggregate (e. g. numbers tested 
and percent of tests that were positive). No individual-level 
information is collected through this instrument.
    The Indirect Services Outcomes Data Tool collects annual data on 
community-level outcome measures. These data typically come from 
existing sources such as ongoing community surveys and administrative 
data collected by local agencies and institutions such as law 
enforcement, school districts, college campuses, hospitals, and health
