Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 89107-89108 [2016-29590]

Download as PDF 89107 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 237 / Friday, December 9, 2016 / Notices regardless of whether microcephaly or other conditions are diagnosed prenatally or at birth. CDC has published clinical guidance for care of pregnant women with evidence of Zika infection and care of infants born to mothers who had Zika infection. 4. Improve Provider Capacity and Capability We recognize that award recipients will have varying levels of infrastructure, provider capacity and capability, and other funding sources devoted to addressing Zika. Sufficient provider capacity and capability is critical to ensure successful implementation of an effective Zika prevention initiative in increasing access to contraceptives; reducing barriers to diagnostic testing, screening and counseling; and increasing access to appropriate specialized healthcare services. This funding opportunity has been structured to ensure an effective Zika response that addresses the four critical components of a comprehensive response to Zika as quickly as possible. Accordingly, the single source emergency funding opportunity is solely available to the territorial and state health departments in American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Florida, based on their ability to quickly and efficiently expand their existing Zika response efforts and to further determine the most effective use and dissemination of funds in their respective jurisdictions. The health departments in American Samoa, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Florida are uniquely positioned to meet the goals of the emergency cooperative agreement based on their capacity, partnerships, resources, prior experience, and ability to begin implementing the project immediately. Immediate implementation is critical to successfully addressing this rapidly spreading public health threat. The budget and project period under the specific funding opportunity will be 36 months. The total amount of federal funds available in the first round is up to $66,100,000 as follows: • American Samoa Government Department of Health: $1,100,000 • Puerto Rico Health Department: $60,600,000 • U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Health: $2,100,000 • Florida Department of Health: $2,300,000 A majority of the first round funds are being allocated to Puerto Rico based on the magnitude of infections and likely rates of infants born to mothers with maternal Zika infection. We expect to issue a second round of funds through an additional funding opportunity announcement in 2017. The initial funding opportunity seeks to issue funds to currently support areas of greatest need, while maintaining additional funds to prevent, detect, and respond to future Zika outbreaks. III. Collection of Information Requirements This notice establishes funding opportunities for health departments in areas with laboratory-confirmed active or local Zika virus transmission. Since we estimate fewer than ten respondents (American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Florida), any information collection requirements and burden are exempt (5 CFR 1320.3(c)) from the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

OMB No.: 0970–0417. Description: State child support agencies are required to establish and operate a federally approved statewide automated data processing and information retrieval system to assist in child support enforcement. States are required to submit an initial advance automated data processing planning document (APD) containing information to assist the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in determining if the state computerized support enforcement system meets federal requirements and providing federal approval. States are also required to submit annually an updated APD for oversight purposes. Based on assessment of the information provided in the initial or updated APDs, states that do not meet federal requirement approval will need to complete an independent verification and validation. The Advance Planning Document (APD) process, established in the rules at 45 CFR part 95, Subpart F, is the procedure by which States request and obtain approval for Federal financial participation in their cost of acquiring Automatic Data Processing (ADP) equipment and services. State agencies that submit APD requests provide the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with the following information necessary to determine the States’ needs to acquire the requested ADP equipment and/or services: Respondents: States.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Provision of Child Support Services in IV-D Cases under the 
Hague Child Support Convention; Federally Approved Forms.
    OMB No.: 0970-0488.
    On January 1, 2017, the 2007 Hague Convention on the International 
Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance will 
enter into force for the United States. In order to comply with the 
Convention, the U.S. must implement the Convention's case processing 
forms.
    State and Federal law require states to use Federally-approved case 
processing forms. Section 311(b) of UIFSA 2008, which has been enacted 
by all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the 
Virgin Islands, requires States to use forms mandated by Federal law. 
45 CFR 303.7 also requires child support programs to use federally-
approved forms in intergovernmental IV-D cases unless a country has 
provided alternative forms as a part of its chapter in a Caseworker's 
Guide to Processing Cases with Foreign Reciprocating Countries.
    OCSE received few comments on the burden estimate related to this 
proposed collection during the 60-day comment period, which started 
September 30, 2016 (Federal Register Volume 81, Number 190, page 
67355). Therefore, we have not changed the burden estimate. Concurrent 
with this request, OCSE requested an emergency clearance, pursuant to 
section 1320.13 of the implementing rule of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act, so that States could begin using the forms by January 1, 2017, the 
effective date for the Hague Child Support Convention in the U.S. OMB 
granted emergency approval, which will expire on May 31, 2017.
    Respondents: State, local, or Tribal agencies administering a child 
support enforcement program under title IV-D of the Social Security 
Act.
