OMB No.: 0970–0299. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is conducting an evaluation study titled Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM). This is a large-scale, multi-site, rigorous test of marriage and relationship skills education programs for low-income married couples. The baseline information collection for the study was previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB Number 0970–0299) and expires on May 31, 2009. The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of ACF’s intent to request an extension of this clearance prior to its expiration. The SHM project is founded on research that indicates that both adults in healthy marriages and their children do better on a host of outcomes. The evaluation study will determine the interim and long-term effectiveness of eight local programs by comparing outcomes on a range of measures for couples and children in the program group to a comparable group of couples randomly assigned to a control group. Baseline information is collected from couples at the time they volunteer to participate in a SHM program. The baseline data collection provides information about the characteristics of the husband and wife and information about their attitudes and beliefs about their relationship at study entry. This information will be used to inform the public, program operators and policymakers about the characteristics of married couples who volunteer for marriage education programs, and, among other uses, it will be used to define and conduct analyses of key sub groups, addressing a key study question of who benefits most from this type of marriage education service. Respondents: Low-income married couples.

Proposed Collection: Title: Hispanic Community Health Study (HCHS)/Study of Latinos (SOL). Type of Information Collection Request: Revision. OMB# 0925–0584, exp. 2/28/2011. Need and Use of Information Collection: The Hispanic Community Health Study (HCHS)/Study of Latinos (SOL) will identify risk factors for cardiovascular and lung disease in Hispanic populations and determine the role of acculturation in the prevalence and development of these diseases. Hispanics, now the largest minority population in the US, are influenced by factors associated with immigration from different cultural settings and environments, including changes in diet, activity, community support, working conditions, and health care access. This project is a multicenter, six-and-a-half year epidemiologic study and will recruit 16,000 Hispanic men and women aged 18–74 in four community-based cohorts in Chicago, Miami, San Diego, and the Bronx. The study will also examine measures of obesity, physical activity, nutritional habits, diabetes, lung and sleep function, cognitive function, hearing, and dental conditions. Closely integrated with the research component will be a community and professional education component, with the goals of bringing the research results back to the community, improving recognition and control of risk factors, and attracting and training Hispanic researchers in epidemiology and population-based research. Frequency of Response: The participants will be contacted annually. Affected Public: Individuals or households; Businesses or other for profit; Small businesses or organizations. Type of Respondents: Individuals or households; physicians. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,320; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.238; Average Burden Hours Per Response: 0.7161; and Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested: 48,583. The annualized cost to respondents is estimated at $753,285, assuming respondents time at the rate of $15 per hour and physician time at the rate of $55 per hour.
