The primary objective of SOAR is to improve the allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits for people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, and who have serious mental illnesses. During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/SSDI applications through the process is stressed. In response to requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center under SAMHSA’s direction developed a webbased data form that case managers can use to track the progress of submitted applications, including decisions received from SSA either on initial application or on appeal. This password-protected web-based data form is hosted on the SOAR Web site (https://soartrack.prainc.com). Use of this form is completely voluntary. Number of respondents Form name mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Responses per respondent Total responses In addition, data from Part I of the web-based form can be compiled into reports on decision results and the use of SOAR core components, such as the SSA–1696 Appointment of Representative, which allows SSA to communicate directly with the case manager assisting with the application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR state-level leads, and the national SOAR Technical Assistance Center to quantify the success of the effort overall and to identify areas where additional technical assistance is needed. There are no proposed changes to Part I of this form. The proposed additions to create a new Part II of this form include qualitative (open-ended) questions on annual SOAR accomplishments, identified challenges and collaborations. There are 8 new questions that represent new initiatives, challenges, funding sources, steering committees and training. There is also an additional open-ended question on collaborations with 8 potentially applicable areas (e.g. Veterans, justice-involved persons, hospitals) that could require a response. The addition of Part II is for annual reporting by state and local leads only.

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 ........

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

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information 
collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these

Project: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form (OMB No. 0930-0329)--REVISION

    In 2009 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the 
implementation of the SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) 
effort in all states. The primary objective of SOAR is to improve the 
allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability 
benefits for people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, 
and who have serious mental illnesses.
    During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/
SSDI applications through the process is stressed. In response to 
requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center 
under SAMHSA's direction developed a web-based data form that case 
managers can use to track the progress of submitted applications, 
including decisions received from SSA either on initial application or 
on appeal. This password-protected web-based data form is hosted on the 
SOAR Web site (https://soartrack.prainc.com). Use of this form is 
completely voluntary.
    In addition, data from Part I of the web-based form can be compiled 
into reports on decision results and the use of SOAR core components, 
such as the SSA-1696 Appointment of Representative, which allows SSA to 
communicate directly with the case manager assisting with the 
application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR 
state-level leads, and the national SOAR Technical Assistance Center to 
quantify the success of the effort overall and to identify areas where 
additional technical assistance is needed. There are no proposed 
changes to Part I of this form.
    The proposed additions to create a new Part II of this form include 
qualitative (open-ended) questions on annual SOAR accomplishments, 
identified challenges and collaborations. There are 8 new questions 
that represent new initiatives, challenges, funding sources, steering 
committees and training. There is also an additional open-ended 
question on collaborations with 8 potentially applicable areas (e.g. 
Veterans, justice-involved persons, hospitals) that could require a 
response. The addition of Part II is for annual reporting by state and 
local leads only.
    The estimated response burden is as follows:
