The regulations contain information collection requirements associated with the rule. The Act authorizes funds to support activities on behalf of individuals with significant (severe) mental illness (adults) or significant (severe) emotional impairment (children/youth) as defined by the Act at 42 U.S.C. 10802(4) and 10804(d). Only entities designated by the governor of each state, including the American Samoa, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, District of Columbia (Mayor), and the tribal councils of the American Indian Consortium (the Hopi Tribe and the Navajo Nation located in the Four Corners region of the Southwest), to protect and advocate the rights of persons with developmental disabilities are eligible to receive PAIMI Program grants [ibid at 42 U.S.C. at 10802(2)]. These grants are based on a formula prescribed by the Secretary [ibid at 42 U.S.C. at 10822(a)(1)(A)]. On January 1, each eligible state protection and advocacy (P&A) system is required to prepare an annual PAIMI Program Performance Report (PPR). Each annual PPR describes a P&A system’s activities, accomplishments and expenditures to protect the rights of individuals with mental illness supported with payments from PAIMI program allotments during the most recently completed fiscal year. Each P&A system transmit a copy of its annual report to the Secretary (via SAMHSA) and to the State Mental Health Agency where the system is located per the PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10824(a). Each annual PPR must provide the Secretary with the following information: • The number of (PAIMI-eligible) individuals with mental illness served; • A description of the types of activities undertaken; • A description of the types of facilities providing care or treatment to which such activities are undertaken; • A description of the manner in which the activities are initiated; E:\FR\FM\13AUN1.SGM 13AUN1 40075 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 156 / Tuesday, August 13, 2019 / Notices • A description of the accomplishments resulting from such activities; • A description of systems to protect and advocate the rights of individuals with mental illness supported with payments from PAIMI Program allotments; • A description of activities conducted by States to protect and advocate such rights; • A description of mechanisms established by residential facilities for individuals with mental illness to protect such rights; • A description of the coordination among such systems, activities and mechanisms; • Specification of the number of public and nonprofit P&A systems established with PAIMI Program allotments; and • Recommendations for activities and services to improve the protection and advocacy of the rights of individuals with mental illness and a description of the need for such activities and services that were not met by the state P&A systems established under the PAIMI Act due to resource or annual program priority limitations. Each PAIMI grantee’s annual PPR must include a separate section, prepared by its PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC), that describes the council’s activities and its assessment of the state P&A system’s operations per the PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10805(7). In 2017, SAMHSA included the annual PAIMI PPR in the Web-based Block Grant Application System (WebBGAS). WebBGAS, SAMHSAs electronic data system, is used to collect grantee information for the following reasons: (1) To meet the OMB requirements for data collection for mandatory (formula) grant programs; (2) To comply with the annual program reporting requirements of the PAIMI Act 42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq. and the PAIMI Rules 42 CFR, Part 51; (3) To simplify the submission of PAIMI program data by the state P&A systems; (4) To meet the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) requirements; (5) To comply with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) evaluation recommendations that SAMHSA obtain information that closely measures the actual outcomes of the programs it funds; (6) To reduce the grantee data collection burden by removing information that did not facilitate evaluation of a PAIMI grantee’s programmatic and financial management systems; (7) To provide immediate access to the PAIMI program data used to prepare a section of the Secretary’s biennial report to the President, Congress, and National Council on Disability in accordance with the Developmental Disabilities Assistance Act of 2000 at 42 U.S.C. 15005. Reports of the Secretary; (8) To improve SAMHSA’s ability to create reports, analyze trends and provide timely feedback to the P&A grantees when PPR revisions are needed.

Project: Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness 
(PAIMI) Final Rule, 42 CFR Part 51 (OMB No. 0930-0172)--Extension

    These regulations meet the directive under 42 U.S.C. 10826(b) 
requiring the Secretary to promulgate final regulations to carry out 
the PAIMI Act (42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq.). The regulations contain 
information collection requirements associated with the rule. The Act 
authorizes funds to support activities on behalf of individuals with 
significant (severe) mental illness (adults) or significant (severe) 
emotional impairment (children/youth) as defined by the Act at 42 
U.S.C. 10802(4) and 10804(d). Only entities designated by the governor 
of each state, including the American Samoa, Guam, Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin 
Islands, District of Columbia (Mayor), and the tribal councils of the 
American Indian Consortium (the Hopi Tribe and the Navajo Nation 
located in the Four Corners region of the Southwest), to protect and 
advocate the rights of persons with developmental disabilities are 
eligible to receive PAIMI Program grants [ibid at 42 U.S.C. at 
10802(2)]. These grants are based on a formula prescribed by the 
Secretary [ibid at 42 U.S.C. at 10822(a)(1)(A)].
    On January 1, each eligible state protection and advocacy (P&A) 
system is required to prepare an annual PAIMI Program Performance 
Report (PPR). Each annual PPR describes a P&A system's activities, 
accomplishments and expenditures to protect the rights of individuals 
with mental illness supported with payments from PAIMI program 
allotments during the most recently completed fiscal year. Each P&A 
system transmit a copy of its annual report to the Secretary (via 
SAMHSA) and to the State Mental Health Agency where the system is 
located per the PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10824(a). Each annual PPR must 
provide the Secretary with the following information:
     The number of (PAIMI-eligible) individuals with mental 
illness served;
     A description of the types of activities undertaken;
     A description of the types of facilities providing care or 
treatment to which such activities are undertaken;
     A description of the manner in which the activities are 
initiated;

[[Page 40075]]

     A description of the accomplishments resulting from such 
activities;
     A description of systems to protect and advocate the 
rights of individuals with mental illness supported with payments from 
PAIMI Program allotments;
     A description of activities conducted by States to protect 
and advocate such rights;
     A description of mechanisms established by residential 
facilities for individuals with mental illness to protect such rights;
     A description of the coordination among such systems, 
activities and mechanisms;
     Specification of the number of public and nonprofit P&A 
systems established with PAIMI Program allotments; and
     Recommendations for activities and services to improve the 
protection and advocacy of the rights of individuals with mental 
illness and a description of the need for such activities and services 
that were not met by the state P&A systems established under the PAIMI 
Act due to resource or annual program priority limitations.
    Each PAIMI grantee's annual PPR must include a separate section, 
prepared by its PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC), that describes the 
council's activities and its assessment of the state P&A system's 
operations per the PAIMI Act at 42 U.S.C. 10805(7).
    In 2017, SAMHSA included the annual PAIMI PPR in the Web-based 
Block Grant Application System (WebBGAS). WebBGAS, SAMHSAs electronic 
data system, is used to collect grantee information for the following 
reasons:
    (1) To meet the OMB requirements for data collection for mandatory 
(formula) grant programs;
    (2) To comply with the annual program reporting requirements of the 
PAIMI Act 42 U.S.C. 10801 et seq. and the PAIMI Rules 42 CFR, Part 51;
    (3) To simplify the submission of PAIMI program data by the state 
P&A systems;
    (4) To meet the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) 
requirements;
    (5) To comply with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) 
evaluation recommendations that SAMHSA obtain information that closely 
measures the actual outcomes of the programs it funds;
    (6) To reduce the grantee data collection burden by removing 
information that did not facilitate evaluation of a PAIMI grantee's 
programmatic and financial management systems;
    (7) To provide immediate access to the PAIMI program data used to 
prepare a section of the Secretary's biennial report to the President, 
Congress, and National Council on Disability in accordance with the 
Developmental Disabilities Assistance Act of 2000 at 42 U.S.C. 15005. 
Reports of the Secretary;
    (8) To improve SAMHSA's ability to create reports, analyze trends 
and provide timely feedback to the P&A grantees when PPR revisions are 
needed.
    On July 17, 2017, OMB approved SAMHSA's PPR and Advisory Council 
Report (Control No. 0930-0169, Expiration Date July 31, 2020). The 
burden estimate for the annual State P&A system reporting requirements 
for these regulations is as follows:
