Proposed Project: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Annual Data Report: Data Report Form: (OMB No. 0915-0253)—Revision

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Annual Data Report, formerly called the CARE Act Data Report (CADR), was first implemented in 2002 by HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau. It has undergone revisions to incorporate the legislative changes that occurred in 2006. Grantees and their subcontracted service providers who are funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006, (Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program), fill out the report. All Parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 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 providers receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 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. Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Grantees are required to report aggregate data to HRSA annually. The Data Report form is filled out by grantees and their subcontracted service providers. The report has seven different sections containing demographic information about the service providers, as well as the clients served, information about the type of core and support services provided, as well as the number of clients served, information about counseling and testing services, clinical information about the clients served, demographic tables for Parts C and D, and information about the Health Insurance Program. The primary purposes of the Data Report are to: (1) Characterize the organizations where clients receive services; (2) provide information on the number and characteristics of clients who receive Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program 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 Data Report is critical for HRSA, State, and local grantees, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems.

The response burden for grantees is estimated as:

Part A Only561402,240
