-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Administration for Community Living (formerly the 
Administration on Aging (AoA)) is announcing that the proposed 
collection of information listed below has been submitted to the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

DATES: Submit written comments on the collection of information by July 
16, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments on the collection of information by 
fax 202.395.6974 to the OMB Desk Officer for ACL, Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, OMB.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Susan Jenkins, 202.357.3591.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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/
