SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Information Collection Request Title: HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part F Dental Services Report, OMB No. 0915-0151—Extension.

Abstract: The Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) and the Community Based Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP) under Part F of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) offer funding to accredited dental education programs to support the education and training of oral health providers in HIV oral health care, and reimbursement for the provision of oral health services for people eligible for the RWHAP. Institutions eligible for these RWHAP DRP and CBDPP are accredited schools of dentistry and other accredited dental education programs, such as dental hygiene programs or those sponsored by a school of dentistry, a hospital, or a public or private institution that offers postdoctoral training in the specialties of dentistry, advanced education in general dentistry, or a dental general practice residency. The DRP Application for the Notice of Funding Opportunity includes the Dental Services Report (DSR) that applicants use to apply for funding of non-reimbursed costs incurred in providing oral health care to patients with HIV and to report annual program data. Awards are authorized under section 2692(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300ff-111(b). The DSR collects data on program information, client demographics, oral health services, funding, and training. It also requests applicants to provide narrative descriptions of their services and facilities, as well as their links and collaboration with community-based providers of oral health services.

There are minor revisions to 12 data elements in the DSR to be consistent with other HRSA RWHAP grant recipient data that are submitted. For example, the response options for the data element for gender would be expanded to include transgender options; and the age ranges for the data element for age would be changed to align with how data are submitted for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Report. In addition, response options for three other data elements would be reworded or deleted for alignment. These changes will not affect burden as they are minor.

A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on February 3, 2020, vol. 85, No. 22; pp. 5969-70. There were no public comments.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The primary purpose of collecting this information annually is to verify applicant eligibility and determine reimbursement amounts for DRP applicants, as well as to document the program accomplishments of CBDDP grant recipients. This information also allows HRSA to learn about (1) the extent of the involvement of dental schools and programs in treating patients with HIV, (2) the number and characteristics of clients who receive RWHAP supported oral health services, (3) the types and frequency of the provision of these services, (4) the non-reimbursed costs of oral health care provided to patients with HIV, and (5) the scope of grant recipients' community-based Start Printed Page 33689collaborations and training of providers. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, public and community groups, and the general public, information collected in the DSR is critical for HRSA and for recipients to help assess the status of existing HIV-related health service delivery systems.

Likely Respondents: Accredited schools of dentistry and other accredited dental education programs, such as dental hygiene programs or those sponsored by a school of dentistry, a hospital, or a public or private institution that offers postdoctoral training in the specialties of dentistry, advanced education in general dentistry, or a dental general practice residency.
