This notice also includes a summary of proposed information collection for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP Act) Program, which will fund current and past DFC grantees. The STOP program will be evaluated based on the same data already being collected for the ONDCP DFC program. No additional data will be required of respondents. Interested persons are invited to send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including any of the following subjects: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the programs' functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden. Executive Office of the President, Office of National Drug Control Policy is requesting OMB review and approval of this information collection. Written comments and/or recommendations will be accepted from the public if received by the individuals designated below within 60 days from the date of publication. Type of Information Collection Request: New collection. Title: Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Support Program National Evaluation; Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking (STOP Act) Program National Evaluation. Use: 1. The DFC Support Program is an integral component of the National Drug Control Strategy and a requirement of Healthy People 2010. The DFC has two primary goals: (1) Reduce substance abuse among youth by addressing local risk and protective factors to minimize the likelihood of subsequent substance abuse in the community; and (2) support community anti-drug coalitions in becoming self-sufficient by establishing, strengthening, and fostering collaboration among public and private nonprofit agencies, as well as federal, state, local, and tribal governments to prevent and reduce substance abuse. A National Evaluation of the DFC Support Program commenced in September 2004 to assess the program's implementation and effectiveness. The major purpose of the DFC Support Program National Evaluation is to design and implement a rigorous evaluation and to support an effective grant monitoring and tracking system. The National Evaluation will make use of two separate collection instruments to gather information. The Monitoring and Tracking Questionnaire (online tool) will serve as a semi-annual report for DFC grantees and will provide information for ONDCP, SAMHSA and the National Evaluation. The Typology Classification Questionnaire will be used on an annual basis to classify respondents into a coalition typology developed by the evaluation contractor and will provide information for ONDCP and the National Evaluation. Frequency: Semi-annually and annually. Affected Public: Anti-Drug Coalitions. Type of Respondents: Directors of Anti-Drug Coalitions or their designees. 2. The purpose of the STOP Act program is to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth in communities throughout the United States. It was created to strengthen collaboration among communities, the Federal Government, and State, local and tribal governments; to enhance intergovernmental cooperation and coordination on the issue of alcohol use among youth; to serve as a catalyst for increased citizen participation and greater collaboration among all sectors and organizations of a community that first demonstrates a long-term commitment to reducing alcohol use among youth; and to disseminate to communities timely information regarding state-of-the-art practices and initiatives that have proven to be effective in preventing and reducing alcohol use among youth. The statutory authority for this program limits eligibility to domestic public and private nonprofit entities that are currently grantee organizations receiving or having received grant funds under the Drug-Free Communities Program (DFC). STOP Act grants are authorized under the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 290bb-25b), Section 519B. The National Evaluation will make use of one collection instrument to gather information. The Monitoring and Tracking Questionnaire (online tool) will serve as a semi-annual report for STOP Act grantees and will provide information for SAMHSA. Frequency: Semi-annually. Affected Public: Current or prior Drug Free Communities Anti-Drug Coalitions. Type of Respondents: Directors or their designees. Estimated annual burden is as follows:

Document Number: E8-3779
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-28
Agency: Executive Office of the President, National Drug Control Policy Office
This notice lists twenty-six counties designated as additions to the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Program by the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). These new counties are: Letcher County in Kentucky and Hamilton and Washington Counties in Tennessee as additions to the Appalachia HIDTA; Barrow, Bartow, Cherokee, Clayton, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth and Henry Counties in Georgia and Durham, Johnston, Wake, Wayne and Wilson Counties in North Carolina as additions to the Atlanta HIDTA; Shasta County, California as an addition to the Central Valley California HIDTA; Benton, Jefferson, Pulaski and Washington Counties in Arkansas as additions to the Gulf Coast HIDTA; Rock Island County, Illinois as an addition to the Midwest HIDTA; Chester and Delaware Counties in Pennsylvania as additions to the Philadelphia/Camden HIDTA; and Midland and Ector Counties in Texas as additions to the Southwest Border HIDTA West Texas Region. The new counties are designated pursuant to Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 2006 codified at 21 USCS 1706 et seq, to promote more effective coordination of drug control efforts. In considering whether to designate an area under this section as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, the Director considered, in addition to such other criteria the Director, ONDCP considers to be appropriate, the extent to which: (1) The area is a significant center of illegal drug production, manufacturing, importation, or distribution; (2) state and local law enforcement agencies have committed resources to respond to the drug trafficking problem in the area, thereby indicating a determination to respond aggressively to the problem; (3) drug-related activities in the area are having a significant harmful impact in the area, and in other areas of the country; and (4) a significant increase in allocation of Federal resources is necessary to respond adequately to drug-related activities in the area. This action will support local, state and Federal law enforcement officers in assessing regional drug threats, designing strategies to combat the threats, developing initiatives to implement the strategies, and evaluating the effectiveness of their coordinated efforts.
