Proposed Project: Obligated Service for Mental Health Traineeships: Regulations (42 CFR Part 62a) and Forms—(Extension, no change; OMB No. 0930-0074)—SAMHSA's Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) awards grants to institutions for training instruction and traineeships in mental health and related disciplines. Prior to statutory change in 2000, graduate student recipients of these clinical traineeships were required to perform service, as determined by the Secretary to be appropriate in terms of the individual's training and experience, for a length of time equal to the period of support. The clinical trainees funded prior to implementation of the statutory change are required to submit SAMHSA Form 111, which ensures agency receipt of a termination notice prior to the end of support, and the SAMHSA Form SMA 111-2, which is an annual report on employment status and any changes in name and/or address, to SAMHSA. The annual burden estimate is provided below.
|42 CFR citation and associated forms||Number of respondents||Responses/respondent||Average burden/response (hrs.)||Annual burden (hrs.)|
|64a.104(a,b), (c)(1), Termination Notice and Exit Interview—SMA 111||39||1||.10||4|
|64a.105(b)(2), Annual Payback Activities Certification—SMA 111-2||95||1||.18||17|
