The Alzheimer's Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) is authorized through Sections 398, 399 and 399A of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended by Public Law 101-557, the Home Health Care and Alzheimer's disease Amendments of 1990. The ADSSP helps state efforts to expand the availability of community-level supportive services for persons with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers, including underserved populations. ADI-SSS projects are financed solely by Prevention and Public Health Funds. Similar in scope to ADSSP, ADI-SSS projects are designed to fill gaps in dementia-capable home and community based services (HCBS) for persons living with or those at high risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers by providing quality, person-centered services that help them remain independent and safe in their communities. In compliance with the PHS Act, ACL revised the ADSSP Data Reporting Tool (ADSSP-DRT) in 2013 to add demographic data, information on the individuals trained, and service and expenditure data. The 2016 revised Alzheimer's and Dementia Program Data Reporting Tool (ADP-DRT) retains these changes and has been expanded to collect information about the delivery of direct services by both ADSSP and ADI-SSS grantees, as well as basic demographic information about service recipients.
Comments in Response to the 60-Day Federal Register Notice:
A 60-day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2016, Vol. 18, No. 136; pp. 57591. There was one public comment received pertaining to the categories for living arrangements. The comment suggested that the categories needed to have a clear definition. ACL accepted the comment, and the tool was revised by condensing the categories and providing an update to its definition of categories for living arrangements. The proposed ADP-DRT can be found on AoA's Web site at: https://nadrc.acl.gov/sites/default/files/uploads/docs/Proposed%20ADP-DRT%20Update%2011_30_2016.xlsx.
Annual Burden Estimates: The estimated hourly burden for this revised ADP-DRT is based on the number of persons served in the most recent ADSSP and ADI grantee data Start Printed Page 96003submission. In addition, the burden hours per response were determined based on reports from a sample of ADSSP and ADI grants.
