SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program Performance Measurement Information System, OMB NO. 0906–0017, Revision. Abstract: This clearance request is for continued approval of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program Performance Measurement Information System, as updated. The MIECHV Program, administered by HRSA in partnership with the Administration for Children and Families, supports voluntary, evidence-based home visiting services to pregnant women and to parents with young children up to kindergarten entry. States, certain nonprofit organizations, and tribal entities are eligible to receive funding from the MIECHV Program and have the flexibility to tailor the program to serve the specific needs of their communities. A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on December 18, 2020, vol. 85, No. 244; pp. 82490–91. There were 24 public comments. These comments provided suggestions to improve clarity, protect privacy, and reduce reporting burden related to information complexity in Form 1. Comments also suggested ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of existing guidance in Form 2 SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\19APN1.SGM 19APN1 20373 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 73 / Monday, April 19, 2021 / Notices and suggested that the implementation of two newly proposed measures related to substance use screening and referrals would require updates to training activities and data collection. HRSA appreciates these comments and recommended revisions to the information collection. HRSA has responded to the recommended revisions by revising certain demographic categories, removing a proposed table on father and caregiver engagement, making the reporting of proposed measures on substance use screening and referrals optional, and increasing the estimated burden on respondents due to the inclusion of two new optional measures (Form 2) for substance use and referral that are being introduced through this revision. HRSA intends for the following proposed revisions to the data collection for the MIECHV Program to further improve clarity, protect privacy, and address increased reporting burden: • Form 1, Table 1: Update table to include reporting for gender non-binary participants and unknown/did not report participant gender. • Form 1, Tables 3, 5, 6, 7, 18, 19, and 20: Update tables to remove index child gender reporting. • Form 1, Tables 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 18: Update tables to remove adult participant gender reporting. • Form 1, Table 15: Change table title to ‘‘Home Visits.’’ • Form 1, Table 15: Update table to collect the number of home visits completed virtually. • Form 1, Tables 4, 9, 10, and 18: Update tables to include reporting for new and continuing adult participants. • Form 1, Tables 5, 19, and 20: Update tables to include reporting for new and continuing index children. • Form 2, Measure 13: Change measure name to ‘‘Behavioral Concern Inquiries.’’ • Form 2, Measure 16: Update measure to reflect caregiver health insurance coverage status. • Form 2, Measures 17, 18, and 19: Update missing data guidance. • Form 2: Inclusion of two optional measures to collect information on subtance use screening and referrals. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses performance information to demonstrate program accountability and continuously monitor and provide oversight to MIECHV Program awardees. The information is also used to provide quality improvement guidance and technical assistance to awardees and help inform the development of early childhood systems at the national, state, and local level. HRSA is seeking to revise and extend demographic, service utilization, and select clinical indicators for participants enrolled in home visiting services. In addition, HRSA will collect a set of standardized performance and outcome indicators that correspond with the statutorily identified benchmark areas. This information will be used to demonstrate awardees’ compliance with legislative and programmatic requirements. It will also be used to monitor and provide continued oversight for awardee performance and to target technical assistance resources to awardees. In the future, HRSA anticipates that MIECHV funding decisions may be allocated, in part, based on awardee performance, including on benchmark performance areas. This notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, information can be collected in a timely manner. Likely Respondents: MIECHV Program awardees that are states, territories, and, where applicable, nonprofit organizations providing home visiting services within states. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: National Survey of Organ Donation Attitudes and Practices, OMB No. 0915– 0290—Extension. Abstract: HRSA is requesting approval by OMB for a revision of a previously approved collection of information (OMB control number 0915–0290). The National Survey of Organ Donation Attitudes and Practices (NSODAP) is conducted approximately every 6–7 years and serves a critical role in providing HRSA and the donation community with data regarding why Americans choose to donate organs, current barriers to donation, and possible paths to increasing donations. Survey data and derived analytic insights help HRSA develop and target appropriate messages for public outreach and educational initiatives. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA is the primary federal entity responsible for oversight of the solid organ and blood stem cell transplant systems and initiatives to increase organ donor registration and donation in the United States. This survey is the primary method by which HRSA can obtain information from Americans about organ donation attitudes and beliefs. OMB previously approved this survey and HRSA fielded it during 2005, 2012, and 2019. Results of the data collected from this survey will help develop appropriate messages for future public outreach and educational initiatives to increase awareness about organ donation and ultimately the number of registered donors. Likely Respondents: A nationally representative sample of adults over the age of 18 with a higher number of responses from populations of interest such as racial-ethnic minorities, including African American, Asian, Native American, and Hispanic respondents, as well as respondents of all age groups and education levels. 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 collecting, validating, verifying, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and 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.

up to kindergarten entry. States, certain non-profit organizations, and 
tribal entities are eligible to receive funding from the MIECHV Program 
and have the flexibility to tailor the program to serve the specific 
needs of their communities.
    A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on December 18, 
2020, vol. 85, No. 244; pp. 82490-91. There were 24 public comments.

information on subtance use screening and referrals.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses performance 
information to demonstrate program accountability and continuously 
monitor and provide oversight to MIECHV Program awardees. The 
information is also used to provide quality improvement guidance and 
technical assistance to awardees and help inform the development of 
early childhood systems at the national, state, and local level. HRSA 
is seeking to revise and extend demographic, service utilization, and 
select clinical indicators for participants enrolled in home visiting 
services. In addition, HRSA will collect a set of standardized 
performance and outcome indicators that correspond with the statutorily 
identified benchmark areas.
    This information will be used to demonstrate awardees' compliance 
with legislative and programmatic requirements. It will also be used to 
monitor and provide continued oversight for awardee performance and to 
target technical assistance resources to awardees. In the future, HRSA 
anticipates that MIECHV funding decisions may be allocated, in part, 
based on awardee performance, including on benchmark performance areas. 
This notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a 
contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available 
for this purpose, information can be collected in a timely manner.
