Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Project: Youth Programs Evaluation— NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is conducting a crosssite 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 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. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED TOTAL CROSS-PROGRAM DATA COLLECTION BURDEN Number of respondents Grantee cohort Responses per respondent Total number of responses Hours per response a Total burden hours SYT–ED grantees ................................................................

Proposed Project: Registration for Behavioral Health Web Site and Resources (OMB No. 0930–0313)— Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting OMB approval for an extension to the Behavioral Health Web site and Resources data collection. SAMHSA is authorized under section 501(d)(16) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa(d)(16)) to develop and distribute materials for the prevention, treatment, and recovery from substance abuse and mental health disorders. To improve customer service and lessen the burden on the public to locate and obtain these materials, SAMHSA has developed a Web site that includes more than 1,400 free publications from SAMHSA and its component Agencies: the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the Center for Mental Health Services, the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality, and other SAMHSA partners, such as the Office of National Drug Control Policy. These products are available to the public for ordering and download. When a member of the public chooses to order hard-copy publications, it is necessary for SAMHSA to collect certain customer information in order to fulfill the request. To further lessen the burden on the public and provide the level of PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 customer service that the public has come to expect from product Web sites, SAMHSA has developed a voluntary registration process for its publication Web site that allows customers to create accounts. Through these accounts, SAMHSA customers are able to access their order histories and save their shipping addresses. This reduces the burden on customers of having to reidentify materials they ordered in the past and to re-enter their shipping information each time they place an order with SAMHSA. During the Web site registration process, SAMHSA also asks customers to provide optional demographic information that helps SAMHSA evaluate the use and distribution of its publications and improve services to the public. SAMHSA is employing a web-based form for information collection to avoid duplication and unnecessary burden on customers who register both for an account on the product Web site and for email updates. The web technology allows SAMHSA to integrate the email update subscription process into the Web site account registration process. Customers who register for an account on the product Web site are given the option of being enrolled automatically to receive SAMHSA email updates. Any optional questions answered by the customer during the Web site registration process automatically are mapped to the profile generated for the email update system, thereby reducing the collection of duplicate information. SAMHSA collects all customer information submitted for Web site registration and email update subscriptions electronically via a series of web forms on the samhsa.gov domain. Customers can submit the web forms at their leisure, or call SAMHSA’s toll-free Call Center and an information specialist will submit the forms on their behalf. The electronic collection of information reduces the burden on the respondent and streamlines the datacapturing process. SAMHSA places Web site registration information into a E:\FR\FM\21JNN1.SGM 21JNN1

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: 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.
