Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Regulations—45 CFR Part 96 (OMB No. 0930-0163; Extension, no change)
These regulations provide guidance to States regarding the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant legislation, including the information collection requirements regarding the sale or distribution of tobacco products to individuals under age eighteen. The rule implements the reporting and recordkeeping requirements of 42 U.S.C. 300x21-35 and 51-64 by specifying the content of the States' annual reports on and application for block grant funds. The reporting burden hours are counted towards the total burden for the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Application Format (OMB No. 0930-0080) and the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Synar Report Format (OMB No. 0930-0222) for which separate approval is obtained. The total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden estimate is shown below:
|45 CFR citation||Number of respondents 6||Responses/respondent||Hours/response||Total hour burden|
|Start Printed Page 933|
|TOTAL Reporting Burden 5||60||—||—||30,206|
|1 There was a one-time burden associated with change of the due date for the annual report effective with the FY 2001 application.|
|2 This is a requirement to report on activities to implement SAMHSA's charitable choice legislation and regulations promulgated in September 2003 at 42 CFR part 54; information collection language for this requirement is approved under OMB control number 0930-0242.|
|3 This section describes Synar requirements for the first applicable year, which has passed for all States. Therefore, no burden is associated with this section.|
|4 The number of respondents per year for the waiver requests is based on actual experience over the past several years.|
|5 All reporting burden associated with the annual reports, state plan, and waivers is approved under OMB control numbers 0930-0080 and 0930-0242. Only the information collection language in the regulation and the recordkeeping burden are approved under OMB control number 0930-0163.|
|6 Synar reporting requirements do not pertain to the Red Lake Band of the Chippewa Indians of Minnesota and thus have 59 rather than 60 respondents.|
