ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is announcing an opportunity for the public to review substantive changes to the proposed collection of information listed above. Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Federal agencies are required to publish a notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information. DATES: Comments on the collection of information must be submitted electronically by 11:59 p.m. (EST) or postmarked by October 22, 2019.

The PRA requires Federal agencies to provide notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed new collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, ACL is publishing a notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following Information Collection (IC), ACL published a 60-day Federal Register Notice from 11/13/2017–01/12/2018 (Vol. 82, No.217 pp. 52305–52306). ACL received a large volume of substantive stakeholder comments, causing revisions to the IC based on those public comments. The period in publication between the 60-day FRN and 30-day FRN, allowed ACL to thoughtfully review and apply the significant number of substantive public comments to the proposed new TBI IC. In order to remain compliant with PRA 5 CFR 1320.8(d), ACL has published this Federal Register Notice for an abbreviated public comment period prior to publishing a 30-day FRN and submittal to OMB. ACL solicits comments during this abbreviated public comment period regarding: (1) PO 00000 Average burden hours per response 6 18 Washington, DC 20201, Attention: Dana Fink.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2019–21893 Filed 10–7–19; 8:45 am] Number of responses per respondent The accuracy of ACL’s revised estimate of the burden for the proposed collection of information performance reporting data elements and (2) whether the proposed revisions to the collection of information enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. The goal of the federal Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Partnership Program is to help state and local agencies develop resources so all individuals with TBI and their families will have accessible, available, and appropriate services and supports. The TBI State Partnership Program funds the development and implementation of statewide systems that ensure access to TBI related services, including transitional services, rehabilitation, education and employment, and longterm community support. To best monitor, guide, and support TBI State Partnership Program grantees, ACL needs regular information about the grantees’ activities and outcomes. The simplest, least burdensome and most useful way to accomplish this goal is to require grantees to submit information as part of their required semiannual reports via the proposed electronic data submission instrument. In 1996, the Public Health Service Act was amended ‘‘to provide for the conduct of expanded studies and the establishment of innovative programs with respect to traumatic brain injury, and for other purposes’’ (Pub. L. 104– 166). The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), was authorized to ‘‘make grants to States for the purpose of carrying out demonstration projects to improve access to health and other services regarding traumatic brain injury.’’ The Children’s Health Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106–310) authorized HRSA to ‘‘develop, change, or enhance community-based service delivery E:\FR\FM\08OCN1.SGM 08OCN1
