Download as PDF 44376 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 153 / Thursday, August 12, 2021 / Notices Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by emailing infocollection@acf.hhs.gov. 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: The National Center on Health, Behavioral Health, and Safety, in partnership with Child Trends and the Center for Childhood Resilience at the Anne & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (Lurie), will conduct information collection activities across 10 sites within Head Start Region V as part of a small randomized controlled trial of the Ready to Learn through Relationships (RLR) program, a trauma-informed Framework and Toolkit designed to promote resilience in young children. In this evaluation, sites will be matched on a number of factors that may be related to ADDRESSES: implementation and randomized to either a low- or high-intensity TTA condition. The low-intensity condition will receive 4 hours of training, a ‘‘toolkit’’ of activity-based handouts, and access to virtual TA office hours. The high-intensity condition will include 4 hours of additional training on use of the toolkit modules, 6 hours of implementation support, and monthly classroom coaching. Region V Head Start programs that choose to voluntarily participate in the RLR program will be asked to complete a number of implementation and outcomes measures and participate in other evaluation activities. Data collection will involve virtual semistructured interviews and focus groups at the end of the evaluation period, webbased surveys (pre and post), a monthly web-based log of coaching activities completed, and repeated teacher reports of practices throughout the day on a mobile app during 5 weeks across the school year. The information to be collected focuses on teacher practices for supporting children’s social-emotional development and on training and implementation factors that may enhance these practices, which is directly relevant to Head Start’s mission. Information obtained will be shared with Regional TTA providers and site administrators to inform their ongoing and future TTA work. More specifically, results of the evaluation will identify the extent to which more intensive TTA with ongoing coaching and on-site expert consultation enhances teacher practice beyond a lower-intensity TTA approach. Additionally, data are expected to identify implementation factors that may enhance outcomes at both the level of the teacher and Head Start Centers. Respondents: All early childhood centers in Head Start Region V that meet inclusion criteria will be invited to submit application forms to participate in the evaluation, and approximately 10 centers will be selected. Within each center (or site), we anticipate there will be three classrooms of 3–5 year olds. Participants at each center will consist of 7 or 8 individuals (e.g., directors, mental health and behavior consultants, lead and assistant teachers, and coaches), for a total of 75 individuals across all centers or sites.

Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program ClientSUMMARY: Level Data Reporting System: OMB No. 0906–0039—Extension. Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP), authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, is administered by HRSA’s HIV/ AIDS Bureau. HRSA awards funding to recipients in areas of the greatest need to respond effectively to the changing HIV epidemic, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending medical care, treatment, and support services for people living with HIV in the United States. RWHAP reporting requirements include the annual submission of clientlevel data in the RWHAP Services Report (RSR). RSR collects information from grant recipients and their subcontracted service providers, funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of the RWHAP legislation. HRSA is requesting an extension of the current RSR with no changes. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: RWHAP legislation specifies HRSA’s responsibilities in administering grant funds, allocating funding, assessing HIV care outcomes (e.g., viral suppression), and serving particular populations. RSR collects data on the characteristics of RWHAPfunded recipients, their contracted service providers, and the patients or clients served. RSR system consists of two primary components, the Recipient Report and the Provider Report, and a data file containing the client-level data elements. Data is submitted annually. RWHAP legislation specifies the importance of recipient accountability and linking performance to budget. RSR is used to ensure recipient compliance with the law, including evaluating the effectiveness of programs, monitoring recipient and provider performance, and informing annual reports to Congress. Information collected through the RSR is critical for HRSA, state and local grant recipients, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems, assess trends in service utilization, assess the impact of data reporting and identify areas of greatest need. Likely Respondents: RWHAP grant recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, funded under RWHAP parts A, B, C, and D. 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.
