Proposed Project: Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) Common Grant Guidance for Discretionary Grants (OMB No. 0915-0272)--Revision

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) proposes to continue utilization of current reporting requirements for SPRANS projects, CISS projects, and other grant programs administered by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), that include national performance measures developed in accordance with requirements of the ``Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993'' [Pub. L. 103- 62]. The MCHB developed and had approved by OMB a set of performance measures for its discretionary funding programs in 2003. No major changes have been made to the performance measures, only minor editorial or format changes have been made for clarification. The burden estimate for this activity is based upon information provided by current and past MCHB discretionary funds supported projects, as well as experience in completing the current forms. The reporting burden is as follows:
