Submission for OMB Review; Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Annual Report (OMB #0970-0492), 22056-22057 [2021-08613]

Download as PDF 22056 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 78 / Monday, April 26, 2021 / Notices assistance provided by CDC, awardees have worked on identifying and using data systems to systematically collect and report data on all three phases of the stroke care continuum and on hospital capacity. PCNASP currently has OMB approval for the collection of pre-hospital (EMS), in-hospital, and post-hospital patient care data, as well as hospital inventory data (OMB Control No. 0920–1108, Exp. 09/30/2022). CDC plans to request a revision of this currently approved collection, with an extension of three years, reflecting a new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). The new PCNASP cooperative agreement will be expanded to include 13 awardees, which will be awarded on or about July 1, 2021. In-hospital patient care data will continue to align with standards set by The Joint Commission (TJC) and the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) Program. Estimated burden for the collection of in-hospital data will increase by a net increase of eight hours due to added program awardees under the new cooperative agreement. The average burden per response remains 30 minutes for awardees, for a total of 26 hours annually. Data collection methods for prehospital care will continue to be collected similarly to the two current methods, depending on awardees’ access to data sources. These two methods are existing data systems currently available to awardees, including the AHA’s GWTG and the National Emergency Medical Services Information System (NEMSIS). CDC has worked to reduce the overall number of required data elements and identified areas of alignment with AHA’s GWTG. Total average burden will decrease due to the reduction in data elements under the new NOFO. Depending on the awardees’ access to data sources (GWTG or NEMSIS), the average burden per response will vary from 30 minutes to one hour. Thus, the burden for prehospital data is estimated to decrease from 60 to 46 burden hours annually. Under the scope of the new NOFO, patient level post-hospital quality of care data will not be collected. Poststroke transitions of care, rehabilitation, and follow-up will be assessed in alignment with existing CDC cooperative agreements, such as supporting the development of approaches to link patients with community resources and clinical services through CDC–RFA–DP18–1817. As a result, burden for this collection and transmission will not be included in the overall estimation of average burden. Primary data collection of hospital inventory data will continue to be collected to understand the capacity and infrastructure of the hospitals that admit and treat stroke patients. Each hospital will report inventory information to its PCNASP awardee annually. The average burden per response remains 30 minutes for hospitals. In addition, each PCNASP awardee prepares an annual aggregate hospital inventory file for transmission to CDC. The average burden of reporting hospital inventory information for each PCNASP awardee remains eight hours per response. Based on current data and expected number of awardees under the new NOFO, we are estimating the number of hospital partners per awardee to be 50 hospitals. Due to this increase in awardees, the estimated number of hospital respondents is anticipated to increase from 378 to 650. Thus, there is a net increase of 136 hours for hospitals to collect and transmit this data. The total burden for hospital inventory data is increasing from 189 to 325 hours annually. These requested changes will result in a net increase in total average burden from 361 to 501 hours. All patient, hospital, and EMS provider data that is submitted to CDC by PCNASP awardees will be de-identified and occur through secure data systems. Proposed data elements and quality indicators may be updated over time to include new or revised items based on evolving recommendations and standards in the field to improve the quality of stroke care. OMB approval is requested for three years. CDC requests approval for an estimated 501 annualized burden hours. Participation is voluntary, and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.

Alternatively, copies can also be obtained by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE), 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: ACF Reports Clearance Officer. All requests, emailed or written, should be identified by the title of the information collection. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: Section 676 of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act requires states, including the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories applying for CSBG funds to submit an application and plan (CSBG PO 00000 Average burden hours per response Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 State Plan). The CSBG State Plan must meet statutory requirements prior to CSBG grantees (states and territories) being funded with CSBG funds. Grantees have the option to submit a detailed plan annually or biannually. Grantees that submit a biannual plan must provide an abbreviated plan the following year if substantial changes to the initial plan will occur. OCS proposes to revise the automated CSBG State Plan format for states and territories by revising questions for clarity and system compatibility. OCS does not anticipate that these revisions will cause any additional burden to CSBG grantees as they have completed the automated plan for six years. It is anticipated that the burden will continue to diminish in subsequent years due to improved automation. In addition to the CSBG State Plan, OCS requests that all grantees revise their CSBG Eligible Entity Master List in year one to add the executive director and website for each agency. Grantees will revise the Master List as necessary in subsequent years. As the CSBG Eligible Entity Master List is already completed and states have the information about their eligible entities (or sub-grantees), the burden will be E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1
