Download as PDF 20319 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 83 / Friday, May 1, 2009 / Notices Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is conducting a demonstration and evaluation called the Community Healthy Marriage Initiative (CHMI). Demonstration programs have been funded through Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood grants authorized under section 403(a)(2) of the Social Security Act to support healthy marriage directly and to encourage community changes that increase support for healthy marriages and improve child and family well- being. The objective of the evaluation is to: (1) Assess the implementation of community interventions designed to provide marriage education by examining the way the projects operate and by examining child support outcomes among low-income families in the community; and (2) evaluate the community impacts of these interventions on marital stability and satisfaction, child well-being and child support outcomes among low-income families. The purpose of this information collection is to conduct a follow-up survey of respondents from Wave 1 who live in the communities where CHMI demonstrations are operating, and a survey of CR141 program participants. The impact evaluation will assess the effects of community healthy marriage initiatives by comparing family and child well-being outcomes in the CR141 communities with similar outcomes in comparison communities that are well matched to the demonstration project sites. Respondents: Community members and program participants in CHMI treatment and comparison communities.

Proposed Collection: Title: Collection of Customer Service, Demographic, and Smoking/Tobacco Use Information from NCI Cancer Information Service (CIS) Clients. Type of Information Collection Request: Revision of currently approved collection 0925–0208 (expiration 09/30/ 2009). Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service (CIS) provides the latest information on cancer, clinical trials, and tobacco cessation in English and Spanish. Clients are served by calling 1–800–4– CANCER for cancer information; 1–877– 44U–QUIT for smoking cessation services; and using the NCI’s LiveHelp, a Web-based chat service. CIS currently conducts a brief survey of a sample of telephone and LiveHelp clients at the end of usual service—a survey that includes three customer service and twelve demographic questions (age, sex, race, ethnicity, education, household income, number in household, and five questions about health care/coverage). Characterizing clients and how they found out about the CIS is essential to customer service, program planning, and promotion. The NCI also conducts a survey of individuals using the CIS’s smoking cessation services—a survey that includes 20 smoking/tobacco use ‘‘intake’’ questions that serve as a needs assessment that addresses smoking history, previous quit attempts, and motivations to quit smoking. An additional question is used with callers who want to receive proactive call-back services. Responses to these questions enable Information Specialists to provide effective individualized counseling. Frequency of Response: Once. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Type of Respondents: People with cancer; their relatives and friends; and general public, including smokers/tobacco users. Annualized estimates for numbers of respondents and respondent burden are presented in Table 1.
