In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, the Administration for Community Living (Formerly the Administration for Aging) has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. The data collection associated with the Evaluation for the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Program is necessary to determine the overall effect of ADRCs on both long term support and service systems and individuals. ACL will gather information about how ADRCs provide services and whether consumers, who access ADRCs, as compared to consumers who access other systems, report that the experience is more personalized, consumer-friendly, streamlined, and efficient. Staff of the Administration for Community Living's Administration on Aging's Office of Nutrition and Health Promotion Programs will use the information and recommendations resulting from the evaluation of the Aging and Disability Resource Centers to both determine the value of the ADRC model and to improve program operations. In response to the 60-day Federal Register notice related to this proposed data collection and published on October 14, 2011, one set of comments was received. The majority of the comments focused on the practical utility of the proposed collection of information. The remaining comments provided suggestions for enhancing the quality and clarity of the information to be collected. Many of the latter comments resulted in revisions to the proposed data collection tools. The originally proposed data collection tools, the comments with responses and a revised set of data collection tools may be found on the AoA Web site: http://www.aoa.gov/AoA_programs/ Tools_Resources/docs/ADRC_Eval_Data_Collection.pdf. ACL estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows 1,118 hours for individuals and 463 hours for organizations—Total Burden for Study 1581 hours.
