Proposed Project: Evaluation of the State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) Grant Program: New HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is conducting an assessment of MCHB’s State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) Grant Program. The purpose of the ECCS Grant Program is to assist States and Territories in their efforts to build and implement Statewide ECCS that support families and communities in their development of children that are healthy and ready to learn at school entry. These systems must be multiagency and be comprised of the key public and private agencies that provide services and resources to support families and communities in providing for the healthy physical, social, and emotional development of all young children. Grantees are also charged with addressing seven key elements of early childhood comprehensive systems: (1) Governance, (2) financing, (3) communications, (4) family leadership development, (5) provider/practitioner support, (6) standards, and (7) monitoring/accountability. ECCS funding is offered to 52 States and Jurisdictions. An evaluation will be conducted to: (1) Identify and analyze the strategies that grantees and partners are using to build comprehensive early childhood systems, (2) measure the level of progress grantees have made in meeting both the overarching Federal goals and objectives for ECCS grantees and those of their statewide plans, and (3) assess PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the effectiveness of grantees’ early childhood systems development activities. The information from the evaluation will supplement and enhance MCHB’s current data collection efforts by providing a quantifiable, standardized, systematic mechanism for collecting information across the funded implementation grantees. The results will also provide MCHB with timely feedback on the achievements of the ECCS Program and identify potential areas for improvement which will inform program planning and operational decisions. Data collection tools for which OMB approval is being requested include Web-based surveys, telephone interviews, and a Web-based indicator reporting system. Web-based surveys are intended to collect information from all grantees regarding the structure and functioning of the State Team, the nature of activities, and perceptions of progress made in achieving outcomes. One survey will be directed at ECCS Coordinators while a second similar, but shorter survey will be directed at selected State Team members (5 State Team members from each State). The telephone interviews will be conducted with ECCS Coordinators to collect more detailed information on how early childhood services have been integrated, challenges and successes of implementation, and how the activities are designed to improve the lives of children and families. ECCS Coordinators will also be asked to enter information on three early child and family outcome indicators and provide a theory of change, or rationale, on how a specific ECCS activity or set of related activities will produce a measurable change in each outcome indicator. Respondents: ECCS Coordinators and State Team members from the 52 grantees will be the primary respondents for the instruments.

Background and Brief Description The purpose of the proposed study is to develop, test, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness and satisfaction with Chlamydia health messages, products, and methods of dissemination. Chlamydia (CT) is among the leading causes of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain. Most cases of CT are asymptomatic so infected girls and women are unaware of their infections. CDC estimates that in 2006, young women aged 15 to 19 years had the highest CT rate (2,862 cases per 100,000 females), followed by women aged 20 to 24 (2,797 cases per 100,000 females). These rates are likely to be underestimates, because many infected persons do not seek medical care and testing. Data at CDC suggests that CT develops into PID in up to 40% of untreated women and that 12% of women are infertile after their first experience with PID. CDC plans to obtain public preferences that will guide the development of health communication messages/materials about CT with females in the following age groups: 15– 17 years who attend school; 15–17 years who do not attend school: 18–25 years who are employed: And 18–25 years who attend school full-time. Focus groups will be conducted at local predetermined focus group facilities, and surveys will be conducted online and in malls. Women ages 18–25 years, both employed and working full-time, will be recruited by phone through professional recruitment vendors for focus groups; and in malls and on social networking sites for surveys. Girls ages 15–17 years, who do and do not attend school fulltime, will be recruited by phone through professional recruitment vendors for focus groups, after obtaining parental consent; and, in malls and through E:\FR\FM\23JYN1.SGM 23JYN1

Proposed Project: Evaluation of the State Early Childhood Comprehensive 
Systems (ECCS) Grant Program: New

    HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is conducting an 
assessment of MCHB's State Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) 
Grant Program. The purpose of the ECCS Grant Program is to assist 
States and Territories in their efforts to build and implement 
Statewide ECCS that support families and communities in their 
development of children that are healthy and ready to learn at school 
entry. These systems must be multi-agency and be comprised of the key 
public and private agencies that provide services and resources to 
support families and communities in providing for the healthy physical,

comprehensive systems: (1) Governance, (2) financing, (3) 
communications, (4) family leadership development, (5) provider/
practitioner support, (6) standards, and (7) monitoring/accountability. 
ECCS funding is offered to 52 States and Jurisdictions.
    An evaluation will be conducted to: (1) Identify and analyze the 
strategies that grantees and partners are using to build comprehensive 
early childhood systems, (2) measure the level of progress grantees 
have made in meeting both the overarching Federal goals and objectives 
for ECCS grantees and those of their statewide plans, and (3) assess 
the effectiveness of grantees' early childhood systems development 
activities. The information from the evaluation will supplement and 
enhance MCHB's current data collection efforts by providing a 
quantifiable, standardized, systematic mechanism for collecting 
information across the funded implementation grantees. The results will 
also provide MCHB with timely feedback on the achievements of the ECCS 
Program and identify potential areas for improvement which will inform 
program planning and operational decisions.
    Data collection tools for which OMB approval is being requested 
include Web-based surveys, telephone interviews, and a Web-based 
indicator reporting system. Web-based surveys are intended to collect 
information from all grantees regarding the structure and functioning 
of the State Team, the nature of activities, and perceptions of

State). The telephone interviews will be conducted with ECCS 
Coordinators to collect more detailed information on how early 
childhood services have been integrated, challenges and successes of 
implementation, and how the activities are designed to improve the 
lives of children and families. ECCS Coordinators will also be asked to 
enter information on three early child and family outcome indicators 
and provide a theory of change, or rationale, on how a specific ECCS 
activity or set of related activities will produce a measurable change 
in each outcome indicator.
    Respondents: ECCS Coordinators and State Team members from the 52 
grantees will be the primary respondents for the instruments. The 
estimated response burden is as follows:
