SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) oversees PHS-funded animal activities by the authority of the Health Research Extension Act of 1985 and the PHS Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Policy). The PHS Policy, IV.C.1.g., requires that Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs) reviewing PHSconducted or supported research projects, determine if methods of euthanasia used in projects will be consistent with the recommendations of the AVMA Panel on Euthanasia, unless a deviation is justified for scientific reasons in writing by the investigator. PHS-Assured institutions are encouraged to begin using the 2020 Guidelines as soon as possible when reviewing research projects, and full implementation is expected after October 1, 2020. Previously approved projects undergoing continuing review according to PHS Policy, IV.C.5., which requires a complete review at least once every 3 years, must be reviewed using the 2020 Guidelines after October 1, 2020. II. Electronic Access The AVMA has posted the AVMA Guidelines for the Euthanasia of Animals: 2020 Edition at https:// www.avma.org/KB/Policies/Documents/ euthanasia.pdf (PDF).

Proposed Project: Program Evaluation for Prevention Contract (PEPC)— Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF–Rx) Evaluation (OMB No. 0930–0377)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) aims to complete a cross-site evaluation of SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF– Rx). SPF–Rx is designed to address nonmedical use of prescription drugs as well as opioid overdoses by raising awareness about the dangers of sharing medications and by working with pharmaceutical and medical communities on the risks of overprescribing.

The program also aims to enhance capacity for, and access to, Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) data for prevention purposes. This request for data collection includes a revision from previously approved OMB instruments. The SPF–Rx program’s indicators of success are reductions in opioid overdoses, reduction in prescription drug misuse and improved use of PDMP data. Data collected through the tools described in this statement will be used for the national cross-site evaluation of SAMHSA’s SPF–Rx program. This package covers continued data collection through 2023. The PEPC team will systematically collect and maintain an Annual Implementation Instrument (AII) and Grantee and Community Level Outcomes data modules submitted by SPF–Rx grantees through the online Data Management System (DMS). SAMHSA is requesting approval for data collection for the SPF–Rx cross-site evaluation with the following instruments: Annual Implementation Instrument (AII)—The AII is a survey instrument collected yearly to monitor state, tribal entity, and community-level performance, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the SPF–Rx program. This tool is completed by grantees and sub-recipient community project directors, and provides process data related to funding use and effectiveness, organizational capacity, collaboration with community partners, data infrastructure, planned intervention targets, intervention implementation, evaluation, contextual factors, training and technical assistance (T/TA) needs, and sustainability. Grantee- and Community-Level Outcomes Modules—These modules collect data on key SPF–Rx program outcomes, including opioid prescribing patterns and provider use of PDMP. Grantees will provide outcomes data at the grantee level for their state, tribal area, or jurisdiction, as well as at the community level for each of their subrecipient communities. Grantee-Level Interview—This qualitative interview will be administered at the end of the evaluation to obtain information from the grantee project directors on their programs, staffing, populations of focus, infrastructure, capacity, lessons learned, and collaboration.

The HUD HMIS Data Standards have been updated and are effective October 1, 2019. The changes in the HUD HMIS Data Standards are reflected in the PATH Annual Report Manual, and include: —Updates to response categories for Housing Outcomes —Addition of an ‘‘Unable to Locate Client’’ response option to PATH Status —Addition of a demographic question on history with domestic violence The estimated annual burden for these reporting requirements is summarized in the table below.

Proposed Project: Program Evaluation for Prevention Contract (PEPC)--
Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF-Rx) 
Evaluation (OMB No. 0930-0377)--Revision

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA) Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) 
aims to complete a cross-site evaluation of SAMHSA's Strategic 
Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF-Rx). SPF-Rx is 
designed to address nonmedical use of prescription drugs as well as 
opioid overdoses by raising awareness about the dangers of sharing 
medications and by working with pharmaceutical and medical communities 
on the risks of overprescribing. The SPF-Rx program aims to promote 
collaboration between states/tribes and pharmaceutical and medical 
communities to understand the risks of overprescribing to youth ages 
12-17 and adults 18 years of age and older. The program also aims to 
enhance capacity for, and access to, Prescription Drug Monitoring 
Program (PDMP) data for prevention purposes. This request for data 
collection includes a revision from previously approved OMB 
instruments.
    The SPF-Rx program's indicators of success are reductions in opioid 
overdoses, reduction in prescription drug misuse and improved use of 
PDMP data. Data collected through the tools described in this statement 
will be used for the national cross-site evaluation of SAMHSA's SPF-Rx 
program. This package covers continued data collection through 2023. 
The PEPC team will systematically collect and maintain an Annual 
Implementation Instrument (AII) and Grantee and Community Level 
Outcomes data modules submitted by SPF-Rx grantees through the online 
Data Management System (DMS).
    SAMHSA is requesting approval for data collection for the SPF-Rx 
cross-site evaluation with the following instruments:
    Annual Implementation Instrument (AII)--The AII is a survey 
instrument collected yearly to monitor state, tribal entity, and 
community-level performance, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the 
SPF-Rx program. This tool is completed by grantees and sub-recipient 
community project directors, and provides process data related to 
funding use and effectiveness, organizational capacity, collaboration 
with community partners, data infrastructure, planned intervention 
targets, intervention implementation, evaluation, contextual factors, 
training and technical assistance (T/TA) needs, and sustainability.
    Grantee- and Community-Level Outcomes Modules--These modules 
collect data on key SPF-Rx program outcomes, including opioid 
prescribing patterns and provider use of PDMP. Grantees will provide 
outcomes data at the grantee level for their state, tribal area, or 
jurisdiction, as well as at the community level for each of their sub-
recipient communities.
    Grantee-Level Interview--This qualitative interview will be 
administered at the end of the evaluation to obtain information from 
the grantee project directors on their programs, staffing, populations 
of focus, infrastructure, capacity, lessons learned, and collaboration.
