Proposed Project: SAMHSA Application for Peer Grant Reviewers (OMB No. 0930–0255)—Revision Section 501(h) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa) directs the Assistant Secretary of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to establish such peer review groups as are needed to carry out the requirements of Title V of the PHS Act. SAMHSA administers a large discretionary grants program under authorization of Title V, and, for many years, SAMHSA has funded grants to provide prevention and treatment services related to substance abuse and mental health. In support of its grant peer review efforts, SAMHSA desires to continue to expand the number and types of reviewers it uses on these grant review committees. To accomplish that end, SAMHSA has determined that it is important to proactively seek the inclusion of new and qualified representatives on its peer review groups. Accordingly, SAMHSA has developed an application form for use by individuals who wish to apply to serve as peer reviewers. The application form has been developed to capture the essential information about the individual applicants. The most consistent method to accomplish this is through completion of a standard form by all interested persons which captures information about knowledge, education, and experience in a consistent manner from all interested applicants. SAMHSA will use the PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information provided on the applications to identify appropriate peer grant reviewers. Depending on their experience and qualifications, applicants may be invited to serve as grant reviewers. The following changes are proposed in the form: • Added the collection of License # and Expiration Date to meet 21st Century CURES Act requirements. • Deleted the collection of experienced federal reviewer or nonfederal reviewer information. • Under No SAMHSA Experience section, added collection of whether or not the potential reviewer had completed SAMHSA reviewer training with the date. Under the Target Population Section —Added the following distinctions: Tribes or Tribal Organizations Minorities (African American, Hispanic/Latino, etc) Under the Substance Abuse and Clinical Issues Section —Added the following distinctions: Medication Assisted Treatment Emergency Treatment Opioid Use Disorders —Deleted the following distinctions: Depression/Manic Depression Ecstasy Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Personality Disorders Under the Other Expertise Section —Added the following distinctions: Recovery Support Services Behavioral Healthcare Rural Communities —Deleted the following distinctions: Faith Based Community Approaches Violence Prevention Programs Drug Courts The following table shows the annual response burden estimate.
