Information Collection Request Title: Black Lung Clinics Program Performance Measures OMB No. 0915– 0292 Revision. Abstract: HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy conducts an annual data collection of user information for the Black Lung Clinics Program (BLCP), which has been ongoing with OMB approval since 2004. The BLCP is authorized by Sec. 427(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended (30 U.S.C. 937), and accompanying regulations at 42 CFR part 55a, to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with occupationally-related coal mine dust lung disease through the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of active, inactive, retired, and/or disabled coal miners. Collecting this data provides HRSA with information on how well each grantee is meeting the needs of these miners in their communities. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data from the annual performance measures report provides quantitative information about the clinics, specifically: (a) The characteristics of the patients they serve (age, diagnoses, occupation type); (b) the characteristics of services provided (clinical services and benefits counseling); and (c) the number of patients served. This assessment enables HRSA to provide data required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. It also ensures that funds are effectively used to provide services that meet the target population needs. The proposed changes of the BLCP measures are a result of the accumulation of grantee and stakeholder feedback, and information gathered from the previously approved BLCP measures. The proposed changes include revisions of current measures for better usability and additional questions about screening program participation, smoking, pulmonary function testing, referral for services, and COVID–19 vaccination. Likely Respondents: Respondents will likely be award recipients of the Black Lung Clinics Program. A 60-day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal Register on May 13, 2021, vol. 86, No. 91, pp. 26225–26226. There were no public comments. 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.
