SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Evaluation of Maternal and Child Health Bureau Pediatric Mental Health Care Access Program and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau Screening and SUMMARY: Treatment for Maternal Depression and Related Behavioral Disorders Program OMB No. 0906–xxxx—[NEW]. Abstract: HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau Pediatric Mental Health Care Access (PMHCA) and Maternal Depression and Related Behavioral Disorders (MDRBD) programs aim to increase identification of behavioral health conditions by screening specified populations (e.g., children, adolescents, young adults, and pregnant and postpartum women, especially those living in rural, isolated, and underserved areas); providing clinical behavioral health consultation; care coordination support (e.g., communication/collaboration, accessing resources, referral services) and training to health care providers; and increasing access to clinical interventions including by telehealth. Provider education and training will support the knowledge and skills acquisition needed to accomplish this goal. PMHCA program is authorized by the Public Health Service Act, § 330M (42 U.S.C. 254c–19), as amended. The MDRBD program is authorized by the Public Health Service Act, § 317L–1 (42 U.S.C. 247b–13a), as amended. In order to evaluate progress made toward the programs’ goals, this data collection will use four instruments: Health Care Provider (HCP) Survey, Practice-Level Survey, Program Implementation Survey, and Program Implementation Semi-Structured Interview. A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register on October 17, 2019, Vol. 84, No. 201, pp. 55579–80. There were no public comments. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: This information is needed to evaluate the PMHCA and MDRBD Programs by providing HRSA with the necessary information to guide future policy decisions regarding increasing health care providers capacity to address patient’s behavioral health and access to behavioral health services. Specifically, data collected for the evaluation will be used to study the efforts of awardee programs to achieve key awardee outcomes (e.g., increase in access to behavioral health services; providers trained; available communitybased resources, including counselors or family service providers) and to measure whether and to what extent awardee programs are associated with changes in these key awardee outcomes. The evaluation will also examine changes over time, within a state and/ or across the PMCHA and MDRBD programs, with regard to (1) enrolled providers/practices related to screening, referral, and care coordination for behavioral health conditions; (2) provision of behavioral health services for mental health conditions in primary care settings by enrolled health care providers; (3) use of consultative services; and (4) facilitation of access to behavioral health services for mental health conditions. Likely Respondents: Both HCP and Practice-Level Survey responses will be collected from health care providers and practices that are participating in the PMCHA and MDRBD programs. Likely respondents include: • HCP Surveys: Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives (for MDBRD), other health care professionals (e.g., behavioral health providers, case coordinators, nurses, social workers) • Practice-Level Surveys: Practice managers (e.g., office managers, office leadership, nurse champions) • Program Implementation Survey and Semi-Structured Interview: PMHCA and MDRBD cooperative agreementfunded Project Directors/Principal Investigators 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.

The poverty guidelines are used as an eligibility criterion by Medicaid and a number of other Federal programs. The poverty guidelines issued here are a simplified version of the poverty thresholds that the Census Bureau uses to prepare its estimates of the number of individuals and families in poverty. As required by law, this update is accomplished by increasing the latest published Census Bureau poverty thresholds by the relevant percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI–U). The guidelines in this 2020 notice reflect the 1.8 percent price increase between calendar years 2018 and 2019. After this inflation adjustment, the guidelines are rounded and adjusted to standardize the differences between family sizes.

[NEW].
    Abstract: HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau Pediatric Mental 
Health Care Access (PMHCA) and Maternal Depression and Related 
Behavioral Disorders (MDRBD) programs aim to increase identification of 
behavioral health conditions by screening specified populations (e.g., 
children, adolescents, young adults, and pregnant and postpartum women, 
especially those living in rural, isolated, and underserved areas); 
providing clinical behavioral health consultation; care coordination 
support (e.g., communication/collaboration, accessing resources, 
referral services) and training to health care providers; and 
increasing access to clinical interventions including by telehealth. 
Provider education and training will support the knowledge and skills 
acquisition needed to accomplish this goal. PMHCA program is authorized 
by the Public Health Service Act, Sec.  330M (42 U.S.C. 254c-19), as 
amended. The MDRBD program is authorized by the Public Health Service 
Act, Sec.  317L-1 (42 U.S.C. 247b-13a), as amended. In order to 
evaluate progress made toward the programs' goals, this data collection 
will use four instruments: Health Care Provider (HCP) Survey, Practice-
Level Survey, Program Implementation Survey, and Program Implementation 
Semi-Structured Interview.
    A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register on October 
17, 2019, Vol. 84, No. 201, pp. 55579-80. There were no public

needed to evaluate the PMHCA and MDRBD Programs by providing HRSA with 
the necessary information to guide future policy decisions regarding 
increasing health care providers capacity to address patient's 
behavioral health and access to behavioral health services. 
Specifically, data collected for the evaluation will be used to study 
the efforts of awardee programs to achieve key awardee outcomes (e.g., 
increase in access to behavioral health services; providers trained; 
available community-based resources, including counselors or family 
service providers) and to measure whether and to what extent awardee 
programs are associated with changes in these key awardee outcomes. The 
evaluation will also examine changes over time, within a state and/or 
across the PMCHA and MDRBD programs, with regard to (1) enrolled 
providers/practices related to screening, referral, and care 
coordination for behavioral health conditions; (2) provision of 
behavioral health services for mental health conditions in primary care 
settings by enrolled health care providers; (3) use of consultative 
services; and (4) facilitation of access to behavioral health services 
for mental health conditions.
    Likely Respondents: Both HCP and Practice-Level Survey responses 
will be collected from health care providers and practices that are 
participating in the PMCHA and MDRBD programs. Likely respondents 
include:
     HCP Surveys: Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician 
assistants, nurse midwives (for MDBRD), other health care professionals 
(e.g., behavioral health providers, case coordinators, nurses, social 
workers)
     Practice-Level Surveys: Practice managers (e.g., office 
managers, office leadership, nurse champions)
     Program Implementation Survey and Semi-Structured 
Interview: PMHCA and MDRBD cooperative agreement-funded Project 
Directors/Principal Investigators
    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
