In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, AoA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
State Program Reports provide state totals of the number of persons served for each type of service under the Older Americans Act Title III and Title VII programs as well as the number units of services provided and some characteristics of the clients. Information is also reported on expenditures for each type of service, staffing levels of state and area agencies on aging.
The information collection is an annual requirement for the 56 respondents. These respondents include the State and Territorial Units on Aging comprised of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories. The AoA estimates that a state of average size and complexity will need to commit 2,228 hours to prepare a full report.
In the Federal Register of June 2, 2003 (Vol. 68, No. 105), the agency requested comments on the proposed revised collection of information. The comments received were analyzed and have been incorporated wherever possible into this submission. As a result, we have reduced the reporting burden considerably. We are now seeking approval for this revision of the State Program Reports.Start Signature
Dated: October 30, 2003.
