In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, AoA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

The collection of this information will serve to profile the experience of states in providing family caregiver support services to the elderly and younger adults with disabilities, following the passage of the NFCSP. The outcomes from this survey will include: cross-cutting policy and service delivery issues, state-by-state demographics, promising practices, types of family caregiver support services available in each state, eligibility and assessment criteria, and other program-specific and state-specific information.

The project's data collection, analysis, reporting and dissemination will occur over an estimated 12-month period. Subject to OMB approval, we anticipate beginning data collection in June 2003 and ending data collection in October 2003. Data will be cleaned, entered, compiled and verified over a three-month period (September 2003-November 2003). Data analysis will be conducted over a three-month period (December 2003-February 2004), and state profiles and state-by-state datasets will be prepared over a subsequent three-month period (March 2004-May 2004). The written report will be completed in June 2004.

AoA estimates the burden of this one-time only collection of information as follows:

Part One Survey—Family Caregiver Alliance:

Number of respondents: Three people per state.

Annual Hour Burden: 30 minutes.

Part Two Follow-Up Telephone Interview—Family Caregiver Alliance

Number of respondents: Three people per state (same population—Part One).

Annual Hour Burden: 30 minutes.

Survey by National Conference of State Legislatures:

Number of respondents: One person per state.

Frequency of response: One time.

Annual Hour Burden: 20 minutes.

Annualized Cost: 80 minutes × 50 × $30/hr/person = $2000.

In the Federal Register of December 4, 2002 (07 FR 72216), the agency requested comments on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.
