Proposed Project: Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act: CARE Act Data Report (CADR) Form: (OMB No. 0915-0253)—Revision
The CADR form was created in 1999 by HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau. It is designed to collect information from grantees and their subcontracted service providers, who are funded under Titles I, II, III, and IV of the Ryan White CARE Act of 1990, as amended by the Ryan White CARE Amendments of 1996 and 2000 (codified under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act). All Titles of the CARE Act specify HRSA's responsibilities in the administration of grant funds, the allocation of funds, the evaluation of programs for the population served, and the improvement of the quantity and quality of care. Accurate records of the Start Printed Page 55442providers receiving CARE Act funding, the services provided, and the clients served continue to be critical to the implementation of the legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities. CARE Act grantees are required to report aggregate data to HRSA annually. The CADR form is used by grantees and their subcontracted service providers to report data on seven different areas: service provider information, client information, counseling and testing services, medical services and other services provided, clients served, demographic information, and the Health Insurance Program. The primary purposes of the CADR are to: (1) Characterize the organizations from which clients receive services; (2) provide information on the number and characteristics of clients who receive CARE Act services; and, (3) enable HAB to describe the type and amount of services a client receives. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to the Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected on the CADR is critical for HRSA, State, and local grantees, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems.
The burden estimate for grantees is as follows:
|Grantees funded by Title||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Title I only||51||1||51||40||2,040|
|Title II only||59||1||59||40||2,360|
|Title III only||365||1||365||20||7,300|
|Title IV only||90||1||90||20||1,800|
The burden estimate for service providers is as follows:
|Service providers by grantee funding||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Title I only||976||1||976||26||25,376|
|Title II only||857||1||857||26||22,282|
|Title III only||166||1||166||44||7,304|
|Title IV only||122||1||122||42||5,124|
