Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 17168-17169 [2016-06915]

Download as PDF Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 17168 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2016 / Notices information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires federal agencies to publish a 30-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension or reinstatement of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, CMS is publishing this notice that summarizes the following proposed collection(s) of information for public comment: 1. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of a currently approved collection; Title of Information Collection: Medicaid and CHIP Program (MACPro); Use: The MACPro system is being transitioned to become the system of record that will be used by both state and CMS officials to: Improve the state application and federal review processes, improve federal program management of Medicaid programs and CHIP, and standardize Medicaid program data. Specifically, it will be used by state agencies to: Submit and amend Medicaid state plans, CHIP state plans and ADPs (Information System Advanced Planning Documents); submit applications and amendments for state waivers, demonstrations, and benchmark and grant programs; and submit reporting data. Among the collections submitted for approval under MACPro will be relevant collections that are currently approved under our generic umbrella information collection request (CMS– 10398; OMB control number 0938– 1148), certain collections approved as a regular stand-alone information collections, and upcoming collections. A list of those collections is included in our PRA package. While currently approved by OMB under the regular PRA process which requires 60- and 30-day comment periods, CMS is proposing to have the umbrella of MACPro collections approved under OMB’s generic process which would—in most cases—eliminate the need for the 60- and 30-day comment periods. Although the formal 60- and 30-day public comment periods would be eliminated, the public may continue to comment on any of the MACPro collections at any time.

OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) block grant (42 U.S.C. 8621 et seq.) was established under Title XXVI of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, 97. The Office of Community Services (OCS) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) administers LIHEAP at the federal level. The LIHEAP statute requires HHS to report to Congress annually on program impacts on recipient and eligible households. The primary program goals, as articulated in the statute, are to ensure that benefits are targeted to those households where the greatest program impacts are expected, and to assure that timely resources are available to households experiencing home energy crises. OCS is seeking authorization to collect data from all State LIHEAP grantees and the District of Columbia that will allow OCS to identify LIHEAP recipients that responded to the Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS). The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) conducts this survey to provide periodic national and regional data on residential energy use PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the United States. OCS uses RECS data to furnish Congress and the Administration with important national and regional descriptive data on the energy needs of low-income households. Specific data elements OCS is seeking to collect are detailed below. State LIHEAP grantees will be asked to furnish data for LIHEAP recipient households that reside in areas included in the RECS sample. For each household, report the following: • Name • Address (including ZIP code) • Household or Client ID • Telephone Number • Household Size • Gross Income • Heating assistance awarded? • Amount of heating assistance • Date of heating assistance • Cooling assistance awarded? • Amount of cooling assistance • Date of cooling assistance • Crisis Assistance awarded? • Amount of crisis assistance • Date of crisis assistance • Other Assistance awarded? • Amount of other assistance • Date of other assistance • Presence of children 5 or younger • Presence of adult 60 or older • Presence of disabled The following are additional optional data items that grantees can provide if the data are available in your database: • Tenancy (i.e., own or rent) • Type(s) of fuel used • Heat included in rent This data will help ACF to analyze specific information for the LIHEAP recipient population, including information related to benefits targeting, energy usage, and energy insecurity, and it will support analysis of LIHEAP data for the annual Report to Congress and the annual LIHEAP Home Energy Notebook. Respondents: ACF published a Federal Register notice on December 23, 2015 soliciting 60 days of public comment on requiring State grantees to provide household-level data for this effort. ACF didn’t receive comments on this notice. Annual Burden Estimates The table below shows the estimated reporting burden for the RECS LIHEAP administrative data matching effort. These estimates are based on a small number of interviews with grantees.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program 2015 RECS LIHEAP 
Administrative Data Matching.
    OMB No.: New Collection.
    Description: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) 
block grant (42 U.S.C. 8621 et seq.) was established under Title XXVI 
of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981, 97. The Office of 
Community Services (OCS) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) 
administers LIHEAP at the federal level.
    The LIHEAP statute requires HHS to report to Congress annually on 
program impacts on recipient and eligible households. The primary 
program goals, as articulated in the statute, are to ensure that 
benefits are targeted to those households where the greatest program 
impacts are expected, and to assure that timely resources are available 
to households experiencing home energy crises.
    OCS is seeking authorization to collect data from all State LIHEAP 
grantees and the District of Columbia that will allow OCS to identify 
LIHEAP recipients that responded to the Residential Energy Consumption 
Survey (RECS). The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) 
conducts this survey to provide periodic national and regional data on 
residential energy use in the United States. OCS uses RECS data to 
furnish Congress and the Administration with important national and 
regional descriptive data on the energy needs of low-income households. 
Specific data elements OCS is seeking to collect are detailed below.
    State LIHEAP grantees will be asked to furnish data for LIHEAP 
recipient households that reside in areas included in the RECS sample.
    For each household, report the following:

 Name
 Address (including ZIP code)
 Household or Client ID
 Telephone Number
 Household Size
 Gross Income
 Heating assistance awarded?
 Amount of heating assistance
 Date of heating assistance
 Cooling assistance awarded?
 Amount of cooling assistance
 Date of cooling assistance
 Crisis Assistance awarded?
 Amount of crisis assistance
 Date of crisis assistance
 Other Assistance awarded?
 Amount of other assistance
 Date of other assistance
 Presence of children 5 or younger
 Presence of adult 60 or older
 Presence of disabled

    The following are additional optional data items that grantees can 
provide if the data are available in your database:

 Tenancy (i.e., own or rent)
 Type(s) of fuel used
 Heat included in rent
    This data will help ACF to analyze specific information for the 
LIHEAP recipient population, including information related to benefits 
targeting, energy usage, and energy insecurity, and it will support 
analysis of LIHEAP data for the annual Report to Congress and the 
annual LIHEAP Home Energy Notebook.
    Respondents: ACF published a Federal Register notice on December 
23, 2015 soliciting 60 days of public comment on requiring State 
grantees to provide household-level data for this effort. ACF didn't 
receive comments on this notice.

Annual Burden Estimates

    The table below shows the estimated reporting burden for the RECS 
LIHEAP administrative data matching effort. These estimates are based 
on a small number of interviews with grantees.
