generic clearance that would be used for submissions specific to the 
Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human 
Development (NICHD) Safe to Sleep (STS) public education campaign. 
Submissions for the STS campaign will be used to assess the 
understanding and reach of STS campaign materials and messages, and to 
monitor and improve campaign activities such as training workshops and 
overall implementation. The purpose of this information collection is 
to monitor and modify campaign activities, to plan future campaign 
activities, to develop messages and materials, and to develop 
distribution and outreach strategies that are effective at 
communicating their message to bring about the intended response, 
awareness, and/or behavioral change for the target audiences. This 
generic clearance will enable the NICHD to: (1) More efficiently assess 
the implementation of campaign activities; (2) better understand the 
target audiences' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs toward STS messages 
and materials; (3) better understand how the campaign activities have 
influenced the target audiences' behaviors and practices; and (4)

development. Having a way to gather feedback on the STS campaign 
activities is critical to assessing the reach and effect of campaign 
efforts. Data collected for the campaign can inform where future STS

campaign messages, materials, and/or training curricula; (2) monitor 
and improve campaign activities; (3) make decisions about campaign 
activities; (4) inform current campaign activities; and (5) inform and/
or change practices and behaviors of program participants.
    Examples of the types of information collections that could be
