VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:13 Dec 27, 2018 Jkt 247001 Project: Community Mental Health Services Block Grant and Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant FY 2020–2021 Plan and Report Guidance and Instructions (OMB No. 0930–0168)—Extension The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for an extension of the 2018–19 Community Mental Health Services Block Grant (MHBG) and Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) Plan and Report Guidance and Instructions. Currently, the SABG and the MHBG differ on a number of their practices (e.g., data collection at individual or aggregate levels) and statutory authorities (e.g., method of calculating MOE, stakeholder input requirements for planning, set asides for specific populations or programs, etc.). Historically, the Centers within SAMHSA that administer these block grants have had different approaches to application requirements and reporting. To compound this variation, states have different structures for accepting, planning, and accounting for the block grants and the prevention set aside within the SABG. As a result, how these dollars are spent and what is known about the services and clients that receive these funds varies by block grant and by state. SAMHSA has conveyed that block grant funds must be directed toward four purposes: (1) To fund priority treatment and support services for individuals without insurance or who cycle in and out of health insurance coverage; (2) to fund those priority treatment and support services not covered by Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance offered through the exchanges and that demonstrate success in improving outcomes and/or supporting recovery; (3) to fund universal, selective and targeted prevention activities and services; and (4) to collect performance and outcome data to determine the ongoing effectiveness of behavioral health prevention, treatment and recovery support services and to plan the implementation of new services on a nationwide basis. To help states meet the challenges of 2020 and beyond, and to foster the implementation and management of an integrated physical health, mental health and addiction service system, SAMHSA has established standards and PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67323 expectations that will lead to an improved system of care for individuals with or at risk of mental and substance use disorders. Therefore, this application package continues to fully exercise SAMHSA’s existing authority regarding states’, territories’ and the Red Lake Band of the Chippewa Tribe’s (subsequently referred to as ‘‘states’’) use of block grant funds as they fully integrate behavioral health services into the broader health care continuum. Consistent with previous applications, the FY 2020–2021 application has sections that are required and other sections where additional information is requested. The FY 2020–2021 application requires states to submit a face sheet, a table of contents, a behavioral health assessment and plan, reports of expenditures and persons served, an executive summary, and funding agreements and certifications. In addition, SAMHSA is requesting information on key areas that are critical to the states success in addressing health care integration. Therefore, as part of this block grant planning process, SAMHSA is asking states to identify both their promising or effective strategies as well as their technical assistance needs to implement the strategies they identify in their plans for FYs 2020 and 2021. To facilitate an efficient application process for states, SAMHSA utilized the questions and requests for clarification from representatives from SMHAs and SSAs to inform the proposed changes to the block grants. Based on these discussions with states, SAMHSA is proposing de minimis changes to the block grant program, consisting of updated dates and clarification to instructions. While the statutory deadlines and block grant award periods remain unchanged, SAMHSA encourages states to turn in their application as early as possible to allow for a full discussion and review by SAMHSA. Applications for the MHBG-only is due no later than September 3, 2019. The application for SABG-only is due no later than October 1, 2019. A single application for MHBG and SABG combined is due no later than September 3, 2019. Estimates of Annualized Hour Burden The estimated annualized burden for the uniform application remains unchanged at 33,374 hours. Burden estimates are broken out in the following tables showing burden separately for Year 1 and Year 2. Year 1 includes the estimates of burden for the uniform application and annual reporting. Year 2 includes the estimates of burden for the recordkeeping and E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1
