Project: 2017–2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Methodological Field Tests (OMB No. 0930–0290)— Extension The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population aged 12 years old or older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources. Methodological tests will continue to be designed to examine the feasibility, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Mar 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 quality, and efficiency of new procedures or revisions to existing survey protocol. Specifically, the tests will measure the reliability and validity of certain questionnaire sections and items through multiple measurements on a set of respondents; assess new methods for gaining cooperation and participation of respondents with the goal of increasing response and decreasing potential bias in the survey estimates; and assess the impact of new sampling techniques and technologies on respondent behavior and reporting. Research will involve focus groups, cognitive laboratory testing, customer satisfaction surveys, and field tests. These methodological tests will continue to examine ways to increase data quality, lower operating costs, and gain a better understanding of sources and effects of nonsampling error on NSDUH estimates. Particular attention will be given to minimizing the impact of design changes so survey data continue to remain comparable over time. If these tests provide successful results, current procedures or data collection instruments may be revised. The number of respondents to be included in each field test will vary, depending on the nature of the subject being tested and the target population. However, the total estimated response burden is 8,225 hours. The exact number of subjects and burden hours for each test are unknown at this time, but will be clearly outlined in each individual submission. These estimated burden hours are distributed over three years as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED BURDEN FOR NSDUH METHODOLOGICAL FIELD TESTS Respondent burden hours Time period May 2017 to May 2018 ........

Project: National Resource Center for Mental Health Promotion and Youth Violence Prevention—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) will conduct an annual assessment of the performance of the National Resource Center for Mental Health Promotion and Youth Violence Prevention (NRC). The NRC will collect the information needed to conduct the annual assessment of NRC training and technical assistance activities for the SS/HS and Project LAUNCH programs, as well as the field-at-large. There are four instruments included in this package for approval: (1) Needs Assessment, (2) Site Visit Assessment, (3) Annual Performance Assessment, and Case Study Interview. The NRC is required contractually to report its performance to SAMHSA on an annual basis. Through a cooperative agreement, SAMHSA is funding the NRC to support the training and technical assistance (T/ TA) needs of two SAMHSA grant programs: The Safe Schools/Healthy Students Program (SS/HS) and Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health). In addition, the NRC is funded to disseminate resources and provide E:\FR\FM\08MRN1.SGM 08MRN1 12983 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 44 / Wednesday, March 8, 2017 / Notices technical assistance to the general field of mental health promotion and youth violence prevention. On an annual basis, this encompasses two needs assessment focus groups, 36 needs assessment surveys, 14 site visit assessment interviews, 42 site visit assessment surveys, 183 annual performance assessment surveys, and 55 case study interviews. As a condition of its cooperative agreements with SS/HS and Project LAUNCH, the NRC is required to collect and report on its performance to SAMHSA on an annual basis, using measures that document its T/TA activities, its outputs, and changes in grantee capacity. For SAMHSA to meet its obligations under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRA), the NRC is also required to collect and report on three national outcome measures: (1) The number of individuals who have received training in prevention or mental health promotion; (2) the number and percent of individuals who have demonstrated improvement in their knowledge, attitudes, and/or beliefs, related to prevention or mental health promotion; and (3) the number of individuals contacted through NRC outreach requirements. Data collection efforts will focus on two groups: (a) Project LAUNCH grantees (project directors) and their local community partners and (b) SS/HS grantees (state project coordinators) and their local education agency representatives. Assessment data will be collected through four methods: Annual grantee needs assessments, assessments of annual grantee site visits, an annual performance assessment survey, and annual case studies interviews of grantees and their local partners. Needs assessment. For Project LAUNCH, a total of two focus groups of resource specialists (five per focus group), and 36 surveys (one per grantee) will be conducted annually to assess the annual training and technical assistance (T/TA) needs of grantees. The results will be reported in annual needs assessment reports, submitted to NRC leadership to support annual T/TA planning. Needs assessments are not planned for SS/HS grantees, because they are nearing the end of their grant cycle. Site visit assessment. The CAT will gather information regarding the quality and impact of the NRC’s T/TA site visits through interviews with seven SS/HS and seven Project LAUNCH grantees. We also conduct an online survey with up to 42 state or local partners of grantees (3 per grantee) who participated in the SS/HS or Project LAUNCH site visits. The results will be reported in grant-specific reports, submitted to NRC leadership to inform and improve NRC’s T/TA approach with each grantee. Annual performance assessment. This online performance assessment survey will survey seven SS/HS state project coordinators and 36 Project LAUNCH project directors and up to 140 state and local partners on an annual basis. Survey questions will focus on the content, dosage, and value of T/TA services provided over the previous year. The findings will be reported in annual performance assessment reports to the NRC and to SAMHSA for accountability and T/TA improvement purposes. T/TA case studies. All seven SS/HS project directors and a purposive sample of four Project LAUNCH state project coordinators (11 total), as well as their assigned resource specialists (11 total) and three partners per grantee (33 total), will be interviewed by phone to learn more about specific ways in which the NRC has been instrumental in building grantee capacity over the last year. These new data will be combined with other collected data (such as the needs assessment findings and performance assessment survey data) to tell short, grantee-specific stories of how the combination of NRC services and contextual factors may have affected the choice and success of NRC efforts.

Project: National Resource Center for Mental Health Promotion and Youth 
Violence Prevention--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) will conduct an 
annual assessment of the performance of the National Resource Center 
for Mental Health Promotion and Youth Violence Prevention (NRC). The 
NRC will collect the information needed to conduct the annual 
assessment of NRC training and technical assistance activities for the 
SS/HS and Project LAUNCH programs, as well as the field-at-large. There 
are four instruments included in this package for approval: (1) Needs 
Assessment, (2) Site Visit Assessment, (3) Annual Performance 
Assessment, and Case Study Interview. The NRC is required contractually 
to report its performance to SAMHSA on an annual basis.
    Through a cooperative agreement, SAMHSA is funding the NRC to 
support the training and technical assistance (T/TA) needs of two 
SAMHSA grant programs: The Safe Schools/Healthy Students Program (SS/
HS) and Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's 
Health). In addition, the NRC is funded to disseminate resources and 
provide

technical assistance to the general field of mental health promotion 
and youth violence prevention. On an annual basis, this encompasses two 
needs assessment focus groups, 36 needs assessment surveys, 14 site 
visit assessment interviews, 42 site visit assessment surveys, 183 
annual performance assessment surveys, and 55 case study interviews.
    As a condition of its cooperative agreements with SS/HS and Project 
LAUNCH, the NRC is required to collect and report on its performance to 
SAMHSA on an annual basis, using measures that document its T/TA 
activities, its outputs, and changes in grantee capacity. For SAMHSA to 
meet its obligations under the Government Performance and Results 
Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRA), the NRC is also required to collect 
and report on three national outcome measures: (1) The number of 
individuals who have received training in prevention or mental health 
promotion; (2) the number and percent of individuals who have 
demonstrated improvement in their knowledge, attitudes, and/or beliefs, 
related to prevention or mental health promotion; and (3) the number of 
individuals contacted through NRC outreach requirements.
    Data collection efforts will focus on two groups: (a) Project 
LAUNCH grantees (project directors) and their local community partners 
and (b) SS/HS grantees (state project coordinators) and their local 
education agency representatives. Assessment data will be collected 
through four methods: Annual grantee needs assessments, assessments of 
annual grantee site visits, an annual performance assessment survey, 
and annual case studies interviews of grantees and their local 
partners.
    Needs assessment. For Project LAUNCH, a total of two focus groups 
of resource specialists (five per focus group), and 36 surveys (one per 
grantee) will be conducted annually to assess the annual training and 
technical assistance (T/TA) needs of grantees. The results will be 
reported in annual needs assessment reports, submitted to NRC 
leadership to support annual T/TA planning. Needs assessments are not 
planned for SS/HS grantees, because they are nearing the end of their 
grant cycle.
    Site visit assessment. The CAT will gather information regarding 
the quality and impact of the NRC's T/TA site visits through interviews 
with seven SS/HS and seven Project LAUNCH grantees. We also conduct an 
online survey with up to 42 state or local partners of grantees (3 per 
grantee) who participated in the SS/HS or Project LAUNCH site visits. 
The results will be reported in grant-specific reports, submitted to 
NRC leadership to inform and improve NRC's T/TA approach with each 
grantee.
    Annual performance assessment. This online performance assessment 
survey will survey seven SS/HS state project coordinators and 36 
Project LAUNCH project directors and up to 140 state and local partners 
on an annual basis. Survey questions will focus on the content, dosage, 
and value of T/TA services provided over the previous year. The 
findings will be reported in annual performance assessment reports to 
the NRC and to SAMHSA for accountability and T/TA improvement purposes.
    T/TA case studies. All seven SS/HS project directors and a 
purposive sample of four Project LAUNCH state project coordinators (11 
total), as well as their assigned resource specialists (11 total) and 
three partners per grantee (33 total), will be interviewed by phone to 
learn more about specific ways in which the NRC has been instrumental 
in building grantee capacity over the last year. These new data will be 
combined with other collected data (such as the needs assessment 
findings and performance assessment survey data) to tell short, 
grantee-specific stories of how the combination of NRC services and 
contextual factors may have affected the choice and success of NRC 
efforts.
    The average annual respondent burden for the proposed data 
collection is estimated below. The estimates reflect the average number 
of respondents, the average annual number of responses, the time it 
will take for each response, and the average annual burden.
