Proposed Project Community-Based Organization Outcome Monitoring Projects for CBO HIV Prevention Services Clients— New—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Community-based Organization (CBO) Outcome Monitoring Projects for CBO–HPS Clients (CBO–OMP) will collect information on HIV prevention services provided to HIV-positive clients and high-risk HIV-negative clients. CBOs are funded through CBO– HPS to provide HIV prevention activities. CBOs play an essential role in reaching persons at high risk of transmitting and acquiring HIV infection. Through CBO–HPS, CDC funds 90 CBOs to provide comprehensive HIV prevention services to HIV-positive persons and high-risk HIV-negative persons. However, the CBO–HPS awardees are not required to monitor or report on critical outcomes such as whether HIV-positive persons who are linked to HIV medical care were retained in care or prescribed ART, and whether high-risk HIV-negative persons who were referred to PrEP initiated its use. Also, CBO–HPS CBOs are not required to collect and report data about clients’ perceived barriers to accessing HIV prevention services. The goal of these projects is to fund a subset of CBO–HPS awardees to collect and report data to CDC about the utilization and outcomes of the HIV prevention and support services. This will increase understanding of HIV prevention and support services received by CBO–HPS clients, the outcomes of these services, and successes and challenges related to service provision and utilization. Awardees will collect and report data that are aligned with the Updated NHAS indicators. These projects will help address the Updated NHAS’s call for developing improved mechanisms for monitoring and reporting results of efforts to reduce new HIV infections and improve health outcomes to chart progress over time at both the local and national levels. The purpose of CBO–OMP is to collect data to monitor critical HIV prevention service outcomes of CBO– HPS clients over time. These data will increase understanding of (a) HIV prevention and support services received by CBO–HPS clients, (b) the outcomes of these services, (c) and successes and challenges related to service provision and utilization. Ultimately, these data will improve performance of CBO–HPS CBOs and contribute to reducing HIV infections, increasing access to care, and improving health outcomes for clients. There are no additional costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 1,266.

L. 114–10) 42 U.S.C. 1305 extended funding through FY 2017 for the State Abstinence Program. The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) is accepting applications from States and Territories for the development and implementation of the State Abstinence Program. The purpose of this program is to support decisions to abstain from sexual activity by providing abstinence programming as defined by Section 510(b) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 710(b)) with a focus on those groups that are most likely to bear children out-of-wedlock, such as youth in or aging out of foster care and other vulnerable populations. States are encouraged to develop flexible, medically accurate and effective abstinence-based plans responsive to their specific needs and inclusive of vulnerable populations. These plans must provide abstinence education, and at the option of the State, where appropriate, mentoring, counseling, and adult supervision to promote abstinence from sexual activity, with a focus on those groups which are most likely to bear children out-ofwedlock. An expected outcome for all programs is to promote abstinence from sexual activity. OMB approval is requested to solicit comments from the public on paperwork reduction as it relates to ACYF’s receipt of the following documents from applicants and awardees: State Plan Performance Progress Report Respondents: 50 States and 9 Territories, to include, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands and Palau.
