Start Preamble

Periodically, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish a summary of information collection requests under OMB review, in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.

Proposed Project: SAMHSA Checklist for SF-5161 (OMB No. 0930-0367)—REVISION

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting a revision from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the SF-5161—Checklist. SAMHSA is requesting approval to only collect information on the Checklist and not the Narrative. The Checklist assists applicants and recipients to ensure that they have included all required information necessary to process new and continuation applications as well as the name, title, and phone number of the current business official and project director responsible for carrying out the project. Checklist information concerning the type of application is also needed since new, competing continuation; noncompeting continuation and supplemental applications are separated and reviewed differently. The checklist data helps to reduce the time required to process and review grant applications, expediting the issuance of grant awards as well as ensure collection of essential recipient contact information that is not collected elsewhere.

This data collection has been transferred from HHS to SAMHSA.

The checklist is part of the standard application (SF-5161) for State and local governments and for private non-profit and for-profit organizations when applying for health services projects.
