In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (301) 443-7978.
Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Proposed Project: Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant—45 CFR Part 96 (OMB No. 0930-0163; extension, no change)—This interim final rule provides guidance to States regarding the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant legislation. The rule implements the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of 42 U.S.C. 300x21-35 and 51-64 by specifying the content of the States' annual report on and application for block grant funds. The reporting burden hours will be counted towards the total burden for the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Application Format (OMB No. 0930-0080) for which separate approval is obtained. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden estimate is shown below:
|45 CFR Citation||Number of respondents||Responses respondent||Hours response||Total hour burden|
|96.122(d)1 due date||60||1||1||60|
|96.122(d)2 extension request||60||1||1||60|
|Start Printed Page 56318|
|Total Reporting Burden||60||1||31,920|
|1 This is a one-time burden associated with change of the due date for the annual report effective with the FY 2001 application.|
|2 For the purpose of burden calculation, it is assumed that all States would apply for the extension requests associated with the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) and Synar requirements and for each waiver. In reality it is expected that only a small number will apply for most waivers.|
