Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information Background and Brief Description The CDC is requesting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) grant a three year approval to collect data that comprises the Health Professional Application for Training (HPAT).This instrument was previously approved under OMB #0920–0017, expires 3/31/ 2013. However CDC is requesting to use the form in NCHHSTP and there will be no duplication of information collection. It will serve as the official training application form used for training activities conducted by the Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)/ Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Prevention Training Centers’ (PTCs) grantees and the HIV Capacity Building Assistance (CBAs) grantees funded by the (CDC). The PTCs and CBAs are funded by CDC/Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) and Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) to provide capacitybuilding that includes information, training, technical assistance and technology transfer. The PTCs and CBAs offer classroom and experiential training, web-based training, clinical consultation, and capacity building assistance to maintain and enhance the capacity of health care professionals to control and prevent STDs and HIV. The HPATHPAT is used to monitor and evaluate performance of grantees that offer STD and HIV prevention training, training assistance, and capacity building assistance to physicians, nurses, disease intervention specialists, health educators, etc. The 7,400 respondents represent an average of the number of health professionals trained by the CBA and PTC grantees during the years 2010 and 2011. The data collection is necessary to assess and evaluate the performance of the grantees in delivering training and to standardize training registration processes across the two training programs; the PTC program and the CBA provider program, and multiple grantees funded by each program. The HPAT allows CDC grantees to use a single instrument when partnering with other Health and Human Services (HHS) funded training programs. The HPAT also collects information from the training participants regarding their: (1) Occupations, professions, and functional roles; (2) principal employment settings; (3) location of their work settings; and (4) programmatic and population foci of their work. This data collection provides CDC with information to determine whether the training grantees are reaching their target audiences in terms of provider type, the types of organizations in which participants work, the focus of their work and the population groups and geographic areas served; the data collection is also used to triage and assign CBA provider requests. There are no costs to respondents other than their time.

Proposed Project Monitoring and Reporting System For DELTA FOCUS Awardees—New— National Center for Injury Prevention Background and Brief Description Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans and results in serious consequences for victims, families, and communities. IPV occurs between two people in a close relationship. The term ‘‘intimate partner’’ describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. IPV can impact health in many ways, including long-term health problems, emotional impacts, and links to negative health behaviors. IPV exists along a continuum from a single episode of violence to ongoing battering; many victims do not report IPV to police, friends, or family. The purpose of the DELTA FOCUS (Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances, Focusing on Outcomes for Communities United with States) program is to promote the prevention of IPV through the implementation and evaluation of strategies that create a foundation for the development of practice-based evidence. By emphasizing primary prevention, this program will support comprehensive and coordinated approaches to IPV prevention. The strategies will address the structural determinants of health at the outer layers (societal and community) of the social ecological model (SEM) that coordinate and align with existing prevention strategies at the inner layers of the SEM. This program addresses the ‘‘Healthy People 2020’’ focus area(s) of Injury and Violence Prevention and Social Determinants of Health. CDC seeks OMB approval to collect information electronically from awardees funded under the DELTA FOCUS cooperative agreement program. Information will be collected from DELTA FOCUS awardees through an electronic Performance Management Information System (PMIS). Information collected through the PMIS will be used to inform performance monitoring, program evaluation, responding to requests from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Department of Health and Human Services, White House, Congress, and other sources. DELTA FOCUS awardees will use the information collection to manage and coordinate their activities and to improve their efforts to prevent IPV. Anticipated respondents are a maximum of 10 awardees for the DELTA FOCUS (Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances, Focusing on Outcomes for Communities United with States) All respondents will be state and territorial domestic violence coalitions. Estimated burden for the first-time population of the PMIS is fifteen hours. Semi-Annual Reporting is estimated at three hours per respondent. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. Total estimated annual burden hours are 210. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN TO RESPONDENTS Number of respondents Type of respondents Form name State Domestic Violence Coalitions ..

Proposed Project

    Health Professional Application for Training (HPAT)--New--National 
Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The CDC is requesting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
grant a three year approval to collect data that comprises the Health 
Professional Application for Training (HPAT).This instrument was 
previously approved under OMB 0920-0017, expires 3/31/2013. 
However CDC is requesting to use the form in NCHHSTP and there will be 
no duplication of information collection. It will serve as the official 
training application form used for training activities conducted by the 
Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)/Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) 
Prevention Training Centers' (PTCs) grantees and the HIV Capacity 
Building Assistance (CBAs) grantees funded by the (CDC).
    The PTCs and CBAs are funded by CDC/Division of STD Prevention 
(DSTDP) and Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) to provide capacity-
building that includes information, training, technical assistance and 
technology transfer.
    The PTCs and CBAs offer classroom and experiential training, web-
based training, clinical consultation, and capacity building assistance 
to maintain and enhance the capacity of health care professionals to 
control and prevent STDs and HIV. The HPATHPAT is used to monitor and 
evaluate performance of grantees that offer STD and HIV prevention 
training, training assistance, and capacity building assistance to 
physicians, nurses, disease intervention specialists, health educators, 
etc.
    The 7,400 respondents represent an average of the number of health 
professionals trained by the CBA and PTC grantees during the years 2010 
and 2011. The data collection is necessary to assess and evaluate the 
performance of the grantees in delivering training and to standardize 
training registration processes across the two training programs; the 
PTC program and the CBA provider program, and multiple grantees funded 
by each program. The HPAT allows CDC grantees to use a single 
instrument when partnering with other Health and Human Services (HHS) 
funded training programs.
    The HPAT also collects information from the training participants 
regarding their: (1) Occupations, professions, and functional roles; 
(2) principal employment settings; (3) location of their work settings; 
and (4) programmatic and population foci of their work. This data 
collection provides CDC with information to determine whether the 
training grantees are reaching their target audiences in terms of 
provider type, the types of organizations in which participants work, 
the focus of their work and the population groups and geographic areas 
served; the data collection is also used to triage and assign CBA 
provider requests.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
