Authority: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub L. 114– 113), Division H, Title II CFDA Number: 93.928. Justification: The Jurisdictional Approach to Curing Hepatitis C among HIV/HCV Coinfected People of Color demonstration project seeks to: (1) Increase jurisdiction-level capacity to provide comprehensive screening, care and treatment for HCV among HIV/HCV co-infected people particularly in disproportionately affected racial and ethnic minority communities; (2) increase the numbers of HIV/HCV coinfected people who are diagnosed with hepatitis C, treated, and cured; (3) identify and provide technical assistance for jurisdictions to reach goals (1) and (2); and, (4) develop a plan for evaluation of the program impact. During the original application period, as outlined in Funding Opportunity Announcement HRSA–16– 189, no Ryan White Part B recipients (States) applied. This non-competitive single source cooperative agreement award will provide important resources in a part of the country that would not otherwise have any coverage. NASTAD is a national non-profit alliance of state health department program directors who are responsible for administering HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis health care, prevention, education, and supportive services programs funded by state and federal governments. These include programs funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and HRSA. In working closely with its members, NASTAD is dedicated to reducing the incidence of HIV/AIDS and HCV infections in the U.S. and its territories, and supports the provision of comprehensive, compassionate, and high quality care and prevention services to all persons living with HIV/ AIDS and HCV, by ensuring responsible and sound public policies and practices. NASTAD’s hepatitis team provides guidance and technical assistance to strengthen the capacity of state and local health departments to develop, maintain, and enhance comprehensive hepatitis programs that address the continuum from prevention through cure. This infrastructure, experience, and strategic partnership between state hepatitis coordinators and AIDS directors make NASTAD the appropriate entity to receive a singlesource funding award in an effort to VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Sep 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 facilitate engagement between the states and HRSA’s viral hepatitis efforts.

Information Collection Request Title: Assessment of the Impact of Energy Development on the Behavioral Health of Women in Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana. Abstract: Region VIII Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office on Women’s Health (OWH) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Office on Women’s Health (OWH) in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was established in 1991. Its mission is to provide national leadership and coordination to improve the health of women and girls through policy, education and model programs. The vision of the Office on Women’s Health is that all women and ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67363 girls achieve the best possible health. OASH/OWH has ten regional offices located throughout the country. As a leader in women health, OWH supports the development of culturally-based, gender-sensitive programs to address health disparities. Region VIII OASH/ OWH is interested in improving women’s behavioral health associated with the impact of energy development through gender based data collection and analysis. The discovery and subsequent development of the Parshall Oil Field within the Bakken region of Western North Dakota has led to significant economic opportunity and population growth in the region (Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota). Rapid population growth has many intended and unintended consequences, both positive and negative, on the social and economic environment of the region and, consequently, the population’s health and well-being. There are welldocumented environmental health issues associated with oil and gas development, including air, water, soil, noise, and light pollution. However, there are additional social, physical and mental health effects that are less well documented. Current research is very limited, but preliminary evidence suggests that women have unmet behavioral health needs due in part to the energy development and population surge in region. In 2013, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Region VIII Offices, including the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office on Women’s Health (OWH) began to have discussions directly with state/local contacts about the impact this was having on public health and the specific impacts on women. Given this history and context, the Region VIII OASH/ OWH, is undertaking an assessment to examine the impact of energy development on women’s behavioral health in Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana. Likely Respondents: Data for this assessment will be collected through three mechanisms—a survey of women living in the assessment geography, approximately 20 focus groups with a cross-section of women and other key groups living in the assessment geography, and approximately 40 interviews with key leaders and stakeholders across a variety of governmental and non-governmental sectors. Combined, these data collection mechanisms will provide a quantitative and qualitative portrait of women’s behavioral health in the region.
