The goal of the F2F HIC program is to promote optimal health for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) by facilitating their access to an effective health delivery system and by meeting the health information and support needs of families of CYSHCN and the professionals who serve them. HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau funds 59 F2F HICs in each of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, five U.S. Territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands); and three F2F HICs who serve American Indians/Alaska Natives. On average, these Centers provide information, education, technical assistance, and peer support to approximately 200,000 families of CYSHCN and approximately 100,000 health professionals each year. F2F HICs are staffed by families of CYSHCN who are uniquely positioned to provide such services, and by health professionals. F2F HIC staff also assist in ensuring families and health professionals are partners in decision making at all levels of care and service delivery. In order to evaluate the F2F HIC program, HRSA developed two Familyto-Family Health Information Center Feedback Surveys for family members of CYSHCN and health professionals who serve such families. Each F2F HIC administers the surveys and reports data back to HRSA. Survey respondents will be asked to answer questions about how useful they found the information, assistance, or resources received from the F2F HICs. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments regarding the continuation of previously approved feedback surveys; no changes will be made to the survey instruments.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data from the feedback surveys will provide mechanisms to capture consistent performance data from F2F HIC grant recipients. The data will also allow F2F HICs to evaluate the effectiveness of their interventions and improve services provided to families and the providers who serve CYSHCN families. Likely Respondents: Likely respondents are users of F2F HIC services, which include family members of CYSHCN and health professionals who serve such families. 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.

facilitating their access to an effective health delivery system and by
