Title: Runaway and Homeless Youth Management Information System.
OMB No.: 0970-0123.
Description: In the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (42 U.S.C. 5701 et seq.) Congress mandated that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) report regularly on the status of HHS-funded programs serving Runaway and homeless youth in Basic Center programs (BC), Transitional Living programs (TLP) and Street Outreach programs. Organizations funded under the Runaway and Homeless Youth program are required by statute (42 U.S.C. 5712, 42 U.S.C. 5714-2) to meet several data collection and reporting requirements, including maintaining client statistical records and submitting annual program reports regarding the profile of the youth and families served and the services provided to them. The RHYMIS data supports these organizations as they carry out a variety of integrated, ongoing responsibilities and projects, including legislative reporting requirements, planning and public policy development for runaway and homeless youth programs, accountability monitoring, program management, research, and evaluation. RHYMIS has been redesigned and streamlined to reduce the collection burden upon respondents and to capture key information previously not requested.
Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions.
Annual Burden Estimates:
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|
|BC/TLP Youth Profile||400||185||.75||55,500|
|Street Outreach Report||140||2||.40||112|
|BC/TLP Brief Contacts||400||100||.10||4,000|
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 62,012.
