Background and Brief Description In the United States, chronic conditions such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes are among the leading causes of death and disability. The devastating effects of these conditions can be reduced by adopting healthy behaviors such as eating nutritious foods, being physically active and avoiding tobacco use. CDC has supported a variety of programs aimed at promoting evidenced-based strategies to improve public health. However, despite indications of progress in overall population health, disparities in health status persist for many minority groups. E:\FR\FM\15NON1.SGM 15NON1 68847 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 221 / Friday, November 15, 2013 / Notices In fiscal year 2012, CDC received Affordable Care Act (ACA) funding to support Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) demonstration projects in two sites (Boston, Massachusetts, and Los Angeles, California). The sites are implementing culturally-tailored policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies aimed at reducing rates of obesity and hypertension, and promoting health equity. CDC plans to assess the effectiveness of the REACH demonstration projects through the ‘‘REACH Demonstration Projects: Evaluation Study (RES).’’ The RES is designed to examine the health impact of PSE strategies for promoting health. As required by the ACA, the evaluation will specifically assess changes in weight, proper nutrition, physical activity, tobacco use prevalence, and emotional well-being. Information collected for the RES will consist of targeted surveillance data, biometric measures, and information about health and life style decision making at the REACH demonstration program sites and one non-intervention comparison site (Atlanta, Georgia). Information will also be collected about key cultural and contextual factors that affect health and lifestyle decisionmaking. This information will provide insights about the barriers and facilitators that affect the adoption of healthy behaviors. The specific aims of the RES include the following: (1) Examine trends of risk factors for chronic disease using behavioral and biometric indicators. (2) (OMB) No. 0920–0977, exp. 8/31/2016). For the RES, a Health and Lifestyle Decision-Making domain has been added to the Adult Targeted Surveillance Survey (ATSS) to assess individual change in health-related behavior and lifestyle. The Health and Lifestyle Decision-Making domain was developed by an expert panel that convened to conceptualize and operationalize the survey items based on the literature and existing instruments. The RES will enable CDC to compare data across the three sites at two time periods and to use these data for comparisons with other sources of information, such as state-based behavioral risk factor surveys and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES, OMB No. 0920–0237, exp. 10/31/2013). In addition, the added REACH Demonstration health and lifestyle decision-making domain will identify key contextual factors, such as perceived discrimination, perceived neighborhood safety, mistrust, and other concerns or issues that could potentially serve as mediating and moderating variables that impact health and lifestyle decisions. The study will use computer-assisted personal interviewing technology. The names of respondents will not be included in any data sets or reports prepared from this project. Office of Management and Budget approval is requested for two years. Participation is voluntary, and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. Examine the reduction in health disparities within targeted populations for obesity and hypertension. (3) Identify factors that contribute to the decision-making process for individual change in health-related behavior and lifestyle change through the REACH health and lifestyle decision-making domain (HD). The RES uses a cross-sectional design and will be conducted over a period of two years, collecting survey and biometric data in two cycles of data collection approximately 12 to 15 months apart. Respondents will be representative samples of adults who are 18 years of age or older, and youths between the ages of 9 and 17 years of age, who reside in the two REACH Demonstration sites or the comparison site. An address-based sampling (ABS) approach will be used to select the sample for each site. The sampling design will oversample households containing Black and Hispanic persons (targeted populations) and youths. For each REACH demonstration site, this will result in a sample of up to 1,800 adults and 400 youths for each cycle of data collection. The sample for the comparison site will consist of 2,400 adults and 800 youth for each cycle of data collection.

Proposed Project Resources and Services for the CDC National Prevention Information Network—Revision—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, & TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) proposes to continue data collection for the Resources and Services Database of the CDC National Prevention Information Network and is requesting a 3-year approval of this revised information collection request (ICR). The CDC, NCHHSTP program has the primary responsibility within the CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service for the prevention and control of HIV infection, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB), as well as for community-based HIV prevention activities, syphilis and TB elimination programs. To support NCHHSTP’s mission and to link Americans to prevention, education, and care services, the CDC National Prevention Information Network (NPIN) serves as the U.S. reference, referral, and distribution service for information on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB. NPIN is a critical member of the network of government agencies, community organizations, businesses, health professionals, educators, and human services providers that educate the American public about the grave threat to public health posed by HIV/ AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB, and provides services for persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Established in 1988, the NPIN Resources and Services Database contains entries on approximately 9,000 organizations and is the most comprehensive listing of HIV/AIDS, STD and TB resources and services available throughout the country. This database describes national, state and local organizations that provide services related to HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB, services such as counseling and testing, prevention, education and support. The NPIN reference staff relies on the Resources and Services Database to respond to thousands of requests each year for information or referral from community based organizations, state and local health departments, and health professionals working in HIV/AIDS, STD and TB prevention. The CDC–INFO (formerly the CDC National AIDS Hotline) staff also uses the NPIN Resources and Services Database to refer up to 110,000 callers each year to local programs for information, services, and treatment. The American public can also access the NPIN Resources and Services database through the NPIN Web site. More than 56 million hits by the public to the Web site are recorded annually. A representative from each new organization identified will be administered the resource organization questionnaire via the telephone. Representatives may include registered nurses, social and community service managers, health educators, or social and human service assistants. As part of the verification process for organizations currently included in the Resources and Services Database, about 33 percent of the organization’s representatives will receive a copy of their current database entry by electronic mail, including an introductory message and a list of instructions. The remaining 70 percent will receive a telephone call to review their database record. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 1,882.

indications of progress in overall population health, disparities in 
health status persist for many minority groups.

[[Page 68847]]

    In fiscal year 2012, CDC received Affordable Care Act (ACA) funding 
to support Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) 
demonstration projects in two sites (Boston, Massachusetts, and Los 
Angeles, California). The sites are implementing culturally-tailored 
policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies aimed at reducing 
rates of obesity and hypertension, and promoting health equity.
    CDC plans to assess the effectiveness of the REACH demonstration 
projects through the ``REACH Demonstration Projects: Evaluation Study 
(RES).'' The RES is designed to examine the health impact of PSE 
strategies for promoting health. As required by the ACA, the evaluation 
will specifically assess changes in weight, proper nutrition, physical 
activity, tobacco use prevalence, and emotional well-being. Information 
collected for the RES will consist of targeted surveillance data, 
biometric measures, and information about health and life style 
decision making at the REACH demonstration program sites and one non-
intervention comparison site (Atlanta, Georgia). Information will also 
be collected about key cultural and contextual factors that affect 
health and lifestyle decision-making. This information will provide 
insights about the barriers and facilitators that affect the adoption 
of healthy behaviors.
    The specific aims of the RES include the following: (1) Examine 
trends of risk factors for chronic disease using behavioral and 
biometric indicators. (2) Examine the reduction in health disparities 
within targeted populations for obesity and hypertension. (3) Identify 
factors that contribute to the decision-making process for individual 
change in health-related behavior and lifestyle change through the 
REACH health and lifestyle decision-making domain (HD).
    The RES uses a cross-sectional design and will be conducted over a 
period of two years, collecting survey and biometric data in two cycles 
of data collection approximately 12 to 15 months apart. Respondents 
will be representative samples of adults who are 18 years of age or 
older, and youths between the ages of 9 and 17 years of age, who reside

containing Black and Hispanic persons (targeted populations) and 
youths. For each REACH demonstration site, this will result in a sample 
of up to 1,800 adults and 400 youths for each cycle of data collection. 
The sample for the comparison site will consist of 2,400 adults and 800 
youth for each cycle of data collection.
    The information collection plan and instruments for the RES are 
modeled on the instruments and procedures developed by CDC for 
Community Transformation Grant (CTG) awardees (Targeted Surveillance 
and Biometric Studies for Enhanced Evaluation of CTGs, Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) No. 0920-0977, exp. 8/31/2016). For the 
RES, a Health and Lifestyle Decision-Making domain has been added to 
the Adult Targeted Surveillance Survey (ATSS) to assess individual 
change in health-related behavior and lifestyle. The Health and 
Lifestyle Decision-Making domain was developed by an expert panel that 
convened to conceptualize and operationalize the survey items based on 
the literature and existing instruments.

REACH Demonstration health and lifestyle decision-making domain will 
identify key contextual factors, such as perceived discrimination, 
perceived neighborhood safety, mistrust, and other concerns or issues 
that could potentially serve as mediating and moderating variables that 
impact health and lifestyle decisions.
