Because many labeling provisions correspond to specific recordkeeping requirements, we have accounted for burden attendant to the provisions enumerated in table 3 as third-party disclosures. These figures reflect what we believe to be the average burden incurred by respondents to applicable information collection activities. Overall, the information collection reflects changes and adjustments. For efficiency of operations, we have consolidated related information collection currently approved under OMB control numbers 0910–0577 and 0910–0740 pertaining to recommendations found in Agency guidance and discussed in this notice. This results in an increase to the information collection by 30,482 burden hours annually. At the same time, we have reduced our estimate of the total responses by 53,143,810 annually. Upon review, we believe we previously double-counted burden ascribed to disclosures provisions having accounted for the same burden as that associated with recordkeeping activities. We invite comment on our estimates and these assumptions. Dated: July 2, 2021. Lauren K. Roth, Acting Principal Associate Commissioner for Policy.

Additionally, collecting this data assists HRSA in carrying out the most impactful program and ensuring resources are used responsibly. More specifically, the changes include the following: • Form name change from ANEW to ANE Program Specific Form. • Additional instructions for applicants are provided in each funding opportunity. • Modifications to both Table #1 and Table #2: Æ Revision to instructions to incorporate elements for added programs. Instructions about completion of each table are included within the electronic application materials. Æ Table titles are rephrased for clarity. Æ New ‘‘Additional Specialty’’ column is created to yield a flexible data collection option. • Table #1 rows are numbered for clarity and more rows are added to: Æ Capture auto-tabulation, and Æ Reformat/separate Statutory Funding Preference data from Special Consideration data. • Table #2 has: o ‘‘Students’’ reworded to ‘‘participants/trainees’’; Æ One column labeled, ‘‘Budget Year,’’ to identify the project budget year; Æ One column to create a space for entering the sum for each row; Æ Rows to more clearly indicate the budget year for up to five years; and, Æ One final row to create a space for entering the total for each column. • Frequency of data collection: Data is collected (through the two tables) once during the application period for each funding announcement. • Information determines: Æ If applicants meet the funding preference or special consideration for funding; and Æ Projected target and baseline numbers of trainees/participants to be supported throughout the project period. Likely Respondents: Likely respondents will be current ANE Programs awardees and new applicants to the ANE Programs. 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

for reference.
    Information Collection Request Title: Advanced Nursing Education 
(ANE) Program Specific Form OMB No. 0915- 0375--Revision.
    Abstract: HRSA provides advanced nursing education grants to 
educational institutions to increase the supply, distribution, quality 
of, and access to advanced education nurses through the ANE Programs. 
The ANE Programs are authorized by Section 811 of the Public Health 
Service Act (42 U.S.C. 296j), as amended. This clearance request is for 
continued approval of the information collection OMB No. 0915-0375 with 
revisions.
    This revision request includes a title change from the Advanced 
Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) Program-Specific Data Collection 
Forms to ANE Program Specific Form. This revision also merges forms 
used by the ANEW Program and adds several other new forms from the ANE 
Programs, including the Advanced Nursing Education Nurse Practitioner 
Residency (ANE-NPR) Program, Advanced Nursing Education Nurse 
Practitioner Residency Integration Program (ANE-NPRIP), Nurse 
Anesthetist Traineeship (NAT) Program, and Advanced Nursing Education 
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (ANE-SANE) Program. The revision of the 
ANE Program Specific Form incorporates elements from these four 
programs (ANE-NPR, ANE-NPRIP, NAT, and ANE-SANE) into the ANE Program 
Specific Form.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Section 811 of the Public 
Health Service Act provides the Secretary of HHS with the authority to 
award grants to and enter into contracts with eligible entities to meet 
the costs of--(1) projects that support the enhancement of advanced 
nursing education and practice; and (2) traineeships for individuals in 
advanced nursing education programs. Under this section, HRSA makes 
awards to entities who train and support nurses characterized as 
``advanced education nurses.'' In awarding such grants, funding 
preference is given to applicants with projects that will

[[Page 36757]]

substantially benefit rural or underserved populations, or help meet 
public health nursing needs in state or local health departments; 
special consideration is given to an eligible entity that agrees to 
extend the award to train advanced education nurses who will practice 
in designated health professional shortage areas.
    The ANE Program Specific Form will allow HRSA to effectively target 
funding and measure the impact of the ANE programs in meeting the 
legislative intent and program goals of supporting the enhancement of 
advanced nursing education and creating opportunities for individuals 
in advanced nursing education programs to increase the number of 
advanced practice nurses, especially in rural and underserved areas. 
The proposed updates to this information collection will assist HRSA 
in: streamlining the application submission process across programs; 
enabling an efficient award determination process; and facilitating 
HRSA's ability to monitor the use of funds and analyze program 
outcomes. Additionally, collecting this data assists HRSA in carrying 
out the most impactful program and ensuring resources are used 
responsibly.
    More specifically, the changes include the following:
     Form name change from ANEW to ANE Program Specific Form.
     Additional instructions for applicants are provided in 
each funding opportunity.
     Modifications to both Table #1 and Table #2:
    [cir] Revision to instructions to incorporate elements for added 
programs. Instructions about completion of each table are included 
within the electronic application materials.
    [cir] Table titles are rephrased for clarity.

    o ``Students'' reworded to ``participants/trainees'';
    [cir] One column labeled, ``Budget Year,'' to identify the project 
budget year;
    [cir] One column to create a space for entering the sum for each 
row;
    [cir] Rows to more clearly indicate the budget year for up to five 
years; and,
    [cir] One final row to create a space for entering the total for 
each column.
     Frequency of data collection: Data is collected (through 
the two tables) once during the application period for each funding 
announcement.
     Information determines:
    [cir] If applicants meet the funding preference or special 
consideration for funding; and
    [cir] Projected target and baseline numbers of trainees/
participants to be supported throughout the project period.
    Likely Respondents: Likely respondents will be current ANE Programs 
awardees and new applicants to the ANE Programs.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the
