Agency Information Collection Activities; Extension, Without Change, of a Currently Approved Collection: Application for Family Unity Benefits, 52919-52920 [2021-20563]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 182 / Thursday, September 23, 2021 / Notices collaborations with tribal governments (as described above); Section 2D: The amount that each state invests on the prevention of underage drinking in the categories specified in the STOP Act (see description of Category #4 above) and descriptions of any dedicated fees, taxes, or fines used to raise these funds. The number of questions in each section is as follows: Section 1: 38 questions Section 2A: 15 questions Section 2B: 12 questions Section 2C: 10 questions Section 2D: 10 questions Total: 85 questions Note that the number of questions in Section 2A is an estimate. This section asks states to identify up to ten programs that are specific to underage drinking prevention. For each program identified, there are three follow-up questions. Based on the average number of programs per state reported in the State Survey’s ten-year history, it is anticipated that states will report an average of five programs for a total of 15 questions. It is anticipated that most respondents will actually respond to only a subset of this total. The State Survey is designed with ‘‘skip logic,’’ which means that many questions will only be directed to a subset of respondents who report the existence of particular programs or activities. No changes in content are proposed for the current version of the Survey. Note that the title of the survey has been modified from ‘‘Survey of State Underage Drinking Prevention Policies and Practices’’ to ‘‘Survey of State Underage Drinking Prevention Policies, Programs, and Practices’’ to better reflect the subjects addressed by the State Survey questions. To ensure that the State Survey obtains the necessary data while minimizing the burden on the states, SAMHSA has conducted a lengthy and comprehensive planning process. It sought advice from key stakeholders (as mandated by the STOP Act) including hosting multiple stakeholders’ meetings, conducting two field tests with state officials likely to be responsible for completing the State Survey, and investigating and testing various State Survey formats, online delivery systems, and data collection methodologies. Based on these investigations, SAMHSA collects the required data using an online survey data collection platform (SurveyMonkey). Links to the four sections of the survey are distributed to states via email. The State Survey is sent to each state governor’s office and the Office of the Mayor of the District of Columbia. Based on the experience from the last ten years of administering the State Survey, it is anticipated that the state governors will designate staff from state agencies that have access to the requested data (typically state Alcohol Beverage Control [ABC] agencies and state Substance Abuse Program agencies). SAMHSA provides both telephone and electronic technical support to state agency staff and emphasizes that the states are expected to provide data from existing state databases and other data sources available to them. The burden estimate below takes into account these assumptions. The estimated annual response burden to collect this information is as follows: Instrument Number of respondents Responses/ respondent Burden/ response (hrs) Annual burden (hrs) State Survey .................................................................................................... 51 1 17.7 902.7 Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAMain .
