Proposed Project: Grantee Reporting Requirements for the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990, Title III HIV Early Intervention Services Program (OMB 0915-0158)—Revision
Section 2651 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (commonly known as Title III of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resource Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990), provides categorical funding to increase the capacity and capability of organizations that provide primary health care to HIV-related early intervention services to medically underserved persons who have, or are at high risk for, HIV infection. These services are provided as part of a continuum of HIV prevention and health care services.
This clearance request is for a revision of OMB approval of the Title III Program Data Report form, which is submitted annually by Title III grant recipients. The bulk of the information being collected describes the epidemiologic and demographic characteristics of the populations receiving early intervention services from grant recipients, and provides the basis for the annual report to the Secretary, which is legislatively mandated. It is also used to monitor the delivery of services, guide federal policy, and assist in program development and evaluation.
The estimated response burden is as follows:
