Information Collection Request Title: The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program Eligible Resident/Fellow FTE Chart, OMB No. 0915–0367—Extension. Abstract: The Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) Program, Section 340H of the Public Health Service Act, was established by Section 5508 of Public Law 111–148. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115–123) provided continued funding for the THCGME Program. The THCGME Program awards payment for both direct and indirect expenses to support training for primary care residents in community-based ambulatory patient care settings. The THCGME Program Eligible Resident/ Fellow Full-Time Equivalents (FTE) Chart, published in the THCGME Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), is a means for determining the number of eligible resident/fellow FTE’s in an applicant’s primary care residency program. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: THCGME Program Eligible ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Resident/Fellow FTE Chart requires applicants to provide: (a) Data related to the size and/or growth of the residency program over previous academic years, (b) the number of residents enrolled in the program during the baseline academic year, and (c) a projection of the program’s proposed expansion over the next five academic years. It is imperative that applicants complete this chart to quantify the total supported residents. THCGME funding is used to support an expanded number of residents in a residency program, to establish a new residency training program, or to maintain filled positions at existing programs. Utilization of a chart to gather this important information has decreased the number of errors in the eligibility review process resulting in a more accurate review and funding process, and comports with the regulatory requirement imposed by 45 CFR 75.206(a) ‘‘Standard application requirements, including forms for applying for HHS financial assistance, and state plans.’’ Likely Respondents: Teaching Health Centers applying for THCGME funding through a THCGME NOFO process, which may include new applicants and existing awardees. 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 E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1 28560 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 19, 2019 / Notices data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

In compliance with the requirement for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, HRSA announces plans to submit an Information Collection Request (ICR), described below, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Information Collection Request Title: Standardized Work Plan (SWP) Form for Use with Applications to the Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) Research and Training Grants and Cooperative Agreements, OMB No. 0906–xxxx–New. Abstract: BHW requires applicants for training and research grants and cooperative agreements to submit a work plan that describes the timeframes and deliverables required during the grant period of performance to address each of the needs detailed in the Purpose and Need section of the application, as required in the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcement. Applicants are currently able to submit work plans in a nonstandardized format. In order to standardize the data provided by applicants to make informed decisions about funding and assist with monitoring awardee progress, BHW plans to require applicants to complete a SWP form in lieu of submitting a work plan in the applicant’s own format. Applicants will use the SWP form when they submit their proposals, and grantees and Project Officers will use the SWP information to assist in monitoring progress once HRSA makes the awards. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The information collected by the SWP form is necessary to standardize and streamline the data used by HRSA in reviewing applications and monitoring awardees. The form will ask applicants to provide a description of the activities or steps the recipient will take to achieve each of the objectives proposed during to the entire period of performance. The current variation in formats and data submitted by applicants reduces efficiency in reviewing, awarding, and monitoring each project, so this change will remedy that inefficiency. In addition, seeking OMB approval comports with the regulatory requirement imposed by 45 CFR 75.206(a), Paperwork clearances. The proposed SWP form will be used to provide information to assess applications for awards including ranking applications as part of the grant review process. BHW will also use the information to assess whether current recipients of grant funding have met statutory and programmatic requirements. Likely Respondents: Respondents will be applicants to HRSA’s research and training programs in BHW. 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.

THCGME Program. The THCGME Program awards payment for both direct and 
indirect expenses to support training for primary care residents in 
community-based ambulatory patient care settings. The THCGME Program 
Eligible Resident/Fellow Full-Time Equivalents (FTE) Chart, published
