Proposed Project: The Ricky Ray Hemophilia Relief Fund Program (OMB No. 0915-0244)—Revision
The Ricky Ray Hemophilia Relief Fund Act of 1998 (Pub. L. 105-369) established a trust fund to provide for compassionate payments with regard to certain individuals with blood-clotting disorders, such as hemophilia, who contracted HIV due to contaminated antihemophilic factor within specified time periods. The statute mandated payments to any individual with HIV who has any blood-clotting disorder and was treated with antihemophilic factor any time between July 1, 1982, and December 31, 1987. The Act also provides for payments to certain persons who contracted HIV from the foregoing individuals. Specified survivors of these categories of individuals may also receive payments. In order to receive a payment, either the individual who is eligible for payment, or his or her personal representative, must file a petition for payment with sufficient documentation to prove that he or she meets the requirements of the statute. This data collection is required to provide the necessary medical and legal documentation that establishes eligibility for payment.
The estimated annual response burden is as follows:
|Form||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||House per response||Total hour burden|
|Petition form and Supporting Documentation||1,350||1||3||4,050|
