Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services Waiver Application Requirements. OMB No. 0915–0307—Extension. Abstract: Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program), Part A section 2604(c), Part B section 2612(b), and Part C section 2651(c), requires that grantees expend 75 percent of Parts A, B, and C funds on core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs for individuals with HIV, identified and eligible under the legislation. For grantees under Parts A, B, and C to be exempted from the 75 percent core medical services requirement, they must request and receive a waiver from HRSA, as required in the Act. On October 25, 2013, HRSA published revised standards for core medical services waiver requests in the Federal Register (78 FR 63990). These revised standards will allow grant recipients flexibility to adjust resource allocation based on the service mix needed to reach health outcomes related to retention and viral suppression. These standards ensure that grantees receiving waivers demonstrate the availability of core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs, for persons with HIV served under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. The core medical services waiver uniform standard and waiver request process will apply to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grant Awards under Parts A, B, and C of Title XXVI of the PHS Act. Core medical services waivers will be effective for a 1-year period that is consistent with the grant recipients award period. Grant recipients may submit a waiver request before the annual grant application, with the application, or up to four months after the grant recipient award has been made. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses the documentation submitted in core medical services waiver requests to determine if the applicant/grantee meets the statutory requirements for waiver eligibility including: (1) No waiting lists for AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) services; and (2) evidence of core medical services availability within the grant recipient’s jurisdiction, state, or service area to all individuals with HIV identified and eligible under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. See sections 2604(c)(2), 2612(b)(2), and 2651(c)(2) of the PHS Act. Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program Part A, B, and C grant recipients. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    OMB No. 0915-0307--Extension.
    Abstract: Title XXVI of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as 
amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 
(Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program), Part A section 2604(c), Part B section 
2612(b), and Part C section 2651(c), requires that grantees expend 75 
percent of Parts A, B, and C funds on core medical services, including

under the legislation. For grantees under Parts A, B, and C to be 
exempted from the 75 percent core medical services requirement, they 
must request and receive a waiver from HRSA, as required in the Act.
    On October 25, 2013, HRSA published revised standards for core 
medical services waiver requests in the Federal Register (78 FR 63990). 
These revised standards will allow grant recipients flexibility to 
adjust resource allocation based on the service mix needed to reach 
health outcomes related to retention and viral suppression. These 
standards ensure that grantees receiving waivers demonstrate the 
availability of core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs, 
for persons with HIV served under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. The core 
medical services waiver uniform standard and waiver request process 
will apply to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grant Awards under Parts A, 
B, and C of Title XXVI of the PHS Act. Core medical services waivers 
will be effective for a 1-year period that is consistent with the grant 
recipients award period. Grant recipients may submit a waiver request 
before the annual grant application, with the application, or up to 
four months after the grant recipient award has been made.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses the 
documentation submitted in core medical services waiver requests to 
determine if the applicant/grantee meets the statutory requirements for 
waiver eligibility including: (1) No waiting lists for AIDS Drug 
Assistance Program (ADAP) services; and (2) evidence of core medical 
services availability within the grant recipient's jurisdiction, state, 
or service area to all individuals with HIV identified and eligible 
under Title XXVI of the PHS Act. See sections 2604(c)(2), 2612(b)(2), 
and 2651(c)(2) of the PHS Act.
    Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A, B, and C 
grant recipients.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to
