The specific populations (i.e., adolescents, youth) targeted by the youth programs face a particular set of behavioral health risks and each of the grant programs helps provide targeted services and evidence-based practices. To evaluate the impact and success of SYT program implementation the evaluation includes the following data collection tools: • Implementation Interview Guide • Sustainability Interview Guide • Stakeholder Interview Guide • Provider Survey • Focus Group guides These data collection tools will provide essential information on each grantee program beyond the performance monitoring data already collected by SAMHSA. The Implementation, Sustainability, and Stakeholder Interview Guides are semi-structured interviews. They are designed to collect data on information related to program implementation facilitators and barriers, infrastructure development, factors related to sustainability, and performance that will inform ongoing recommendations to improve program performance and administration. These interview guides were informed by interview guides used successfully in other evaluations including the SAMHSA Access to Recovery Evaluation, ASPE Medicaid Expansion Evaluation, and the SAMHSA Homeless Programs Evaluations. Each interview is estimated to take approximately one hour. SYT grantees and providers will participate in an interview annually while their program is active. SYT program stakeholders will participate once during the course of their respective grant program. Stakeholders include other organizations or agencies that serve or have a stake hold in helping this population, such as other state/ territory/tribe organizations (e.g., child welfare organizations, justice agencies), other community-based providers, or community advocacy groups. Grantee programs will be asked to complete the implementation interview annually until the last year of the grant program when they will be asked to complete the sustainability interview. Respondents will include representatives from PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 grantee, provider and stakeholder organizations involved in the SYT programs. The Provider Survey aims to collect data to help identify program activities and services that are being implemented as part of the SYT grant programs and the impact these activities/services may have on client outcomes and treatment systems. Substance abuse service provider organizations (e.g., treatment facilities implementing evidence-based treatment practices) participating in SYT–ED or SYT–I grants will be asked to participate in the survey. The provider survey will collect data on linkages with the grantee and within the youth substance use treatment system for providing services and a safety net to adolescents, transition age youth, and their families. Topics around grantee dissemination and outreach efforts as well as evidence-based practices, program costs and other training activities will also be explored. The Provider survey is estimated to take approximately 1 hour and SYT–ED provider respondents will complete the survey 2 times, once per year, during the cross-site evaluation while SYT–I provider respondents will complete the survey 3 times, once per year. The Focus Group guides aim to collect the clinicians’ and other direct care staff members’ perspectives in implementing SYT services and the facilitators, barriers and challenges providers encountered. These data will provide valuable contextual data through which to better understand the Provider Survey data. Clinicians/staff members are uniquely qualified to answer implementation questions on a client, staff and community level. The Focus Groups will allow clinicians/staff members to provide important information around the impact of evidence-based practices in the provider organization and within the community they serve. Clinicians/staff members also will be asked about expectations around evidence-based practices, the effectiveness of implementing evidencebased practices, and the level of engagement from their organization’s leadership and the provider community as a whole. Each provider in the SYT–ED and SYT–I grantee programs will complete the Focus Group once and the estimated time per group is 1.5 hours. For each provider, an average of 6 respondents are expected to join the Focus Group.

Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed 
collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health 
Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects 
or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer at (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions 
of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology (IT).

Proposed Project: Youth Programs Evaluation--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is conducting a 
cross-site external evaluation of three grantee programs that are 
critical to its youth treatment grants portfolio. The three programs 
include the 2013 Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent and 
Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination (SYT-
ED), the 2015 and 2016 Cooperative Agreements for State Adolescent and 
Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and Dissemination 
Implementation (SYT-I), and the 2015 Cooperative Agreements for State 
Adolescent and Transitional Aged Youth Treatment Enhancement and 
Dissemination Planning (SYT-P).
    Preventing and treating substance use and/or mental health 
disorders are essential to SAMHSA's mission to reduce the impact of 
behavioral health conditions in America's communities. The specific 
populations (i.e., adolescents, youth) targeted by the youth programs 
face a particular set of behavioral health risks and each of the grant 
programs helps provide targeted services and evidence-based practices. 
To evaluate the impact and success of SYT program implementation the 
evaluation includes the following data collection tools:

 Implementation Interview Guide
 Sustainability Interview Guide
 Stakeholder Interview Guide
 Provider Survey
 Focus Group guides

    These data collection tools will provide essential information on 
each grantee program beyond the performance monitoring data already 
collected by SAMHSA.
    The Implementation, Sustainability, and Stakeholder Interview 
Guides are semi-structured interviews. They are designed to collect 
data on information related to program implementation facilitators and 
barriers, infrastructure development, factors related to 
sustainability, and performance that will inform ongoing 
recommendations to improve program performance and administration. 
These interview guides were informed by interview guides used 
successfully in other evaluations including the SAMHSA Access to 
Recovery Evaluation, ASPE Medicaid Expansion Evaluation, and the SAMHSA 
Homeless Programs Evaluations. Each interview is estimated to take 
approximately one hour. SYT grantees and providers will participate in 
an interview annually while their program is active. SYT program 
stakeholders will participate once during the course of their 
respective grant program. Stakeholders include other organizations or 
agencies that serve or have a stake hold in helping this population, 
such as other state/territory/tribe organizations (e.g., child welfare 
organizations, justice agencies), other community-based providers, or 
community advocacy groups. Grantee programs will be asked to complete 
the implementation interview annually until the last year of the grant 
program when they will be asked to complete the sustainability 
interview. Respondents will include representatives from grantee, 
provider and stakeholder organizations involved in the SYT programs.
    The Provider Survey aims to collect data to help identify program 
activities and services that are being implemented as part of the SYT 
grant programs and the impact these activities/services may have on 
client outcomes and treatment systems. Substance abuse service provider 
organizations (e.g., treatment facilities implementing evidence-based 
treatment practices) participating in SYT-ED or SYT-I grants will be 
asked to participate in the survey. The provider survey will collect 
data on linkages with the grantee and within the youth substance use 
treatment system for providing services and a safety net to 
adolescents, transition age youth, and their families. Topics around 
grantee dissemination and outreach efforts as well as evidence-based 
practices, program costs and other training activities will also be 
explored. The Provider survey is estimated to take approximately 1 hour 
and SYT-ED provider respondents will complete the survey 2 times, once 
per year, during the cross-site evaluation while SYT-I provider 
respondents will complete the survey 3 times, once per year.
    The Focus Group guides aim to collect the clinicians' and other 
direct care staff members' perspectives in implementing SYT services 
and the facilitators, barriers and challenges providers encountered. 
These data will provide valuable contextual data through which to 
better understand the Provider Survey data. Clinicians/staff members 
are uniquely qualified to answer implementation questions on a client, 
staff and community level. The Focus Groups will allow clinicians/staff 
members to provide important information around the impact of evidence-
based practices in the provider organization and within the community 
they serve. Clinicians/staff members also will be asked about 
expectations around evidence-based practices, the effectiveness of 
implementing evidence-based practices, and the level of engagement from 
their organization's leadership and the provider community as a whole.
    Each provider in the SYT-ED and SYT-I grantee programs will 
complete the Focus Group once and the estimated time per group is 1.5 
hours. For each provider, an average of 6 respondents are expected to 
join the Focus Group.
