Proposed Project Evaluation of the Communities Putting Prevention to Work National Media Initiative—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) allotted $650 million to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support evidence-based prevention and wellness strategies. The cornerstone of the initiative is the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) Community Program, administered by the CDC. In March 2010, HHS made 44 CPPW awards for community-based obesity and tobacco preventions efforts, followed in September 2010 by PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30535 additional awards made possible by Affordable Care Act (ACA) funding. Between the two funding sources, there are 50 communities that are part of CPPW: 28 are obesity only-funded communities; 11 are dual-funded for both obesity and tobacco initiatives; and 11 are tobacco only-funded. CPPW awardees are implementing interventions that they have selected from a preselected group of evidencebased strategies that have been defined for physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco use. CPPW program efforts are supported by a 30-month National Prevention Media Initiative. Although originally planned as a national campaign, CDC determined that the best support for the CPPW communities would be to shift to a localized approach. Thus, rather than a national campaign, CDC and an evaluation contractor worked with the communities to develop media buy plans and to place local media buys from an approved pool of creative materials. The media plans are being tailored to best support each awardee’s local efforts, including tailored media mix, creative and timing. Each community has a different schedule for when the ads are running, but overall, ads placed by the CPPW National Media Initiative will run between February 2012 and December 2012. CDC plans to conduct two cycles of information collection to evaluate the local media campaigns in 39 CPPW communities that are addressing obesity. Although we placed ads in all 50 communities, the Office on Smoking and Health is already evaluating the impact of tobacco media throughout the United States, including in CPPW communities. Therefore, the evaluation study described in this information collection request will concentrate on the 39 CPPW communities addressing obesity. Communities were initially provided the opportunity to select from twelve obesity prevention ads. Additionally, some communities requested CDC support in placing their own ads to strengthen their locallybranded marketing efforts. The topics addressed in all the ads that CDC placed are childhood obesity, nutrition, physical activity, and physical activity and physical education in schools. The intended audiences for these ads are the general public, with many communities focusing on parents, and specifically on mothers. CDC plans to conduct two cycles of information collection: in Fall 2012 and Winter/Spring 2013. Information will be collected through brief telephone interviews with adults in the 39 CPPW communities that are focusing on E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
