Download as PDF 66379 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 216 / Friday, November 7, 2014 / Notices eat a substantial amount of fish from Onondaga Lake (300 people); (2) an urban population who rely on fish from Onondaga Lake as a source of food (100 people). Trained NYSDOH study staff will work closely with local refugee and citizen support organizations to get people to take part in the study. Formative research will be conducted to determine the best method for recruiting these Syracuse populations who eat fish from Onondaga Lake. All respondents who consent will give blood and urine specimens. Their blood will be tested for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), toxaphene, chlordane, oxychlordane and transnonachlor, dieldrin, dechlorane plus, omega-3 fatty acids, blood lipids, and pesticides. Pesticides will include mirex, hexachlorobenzene, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE). Their urine will be tested for creatinine. Respondents will also be interviewed. They will be asked about demographic and lifestyle factors, hobbies, and types of jobs which can contribute to chemical exposure. Some diet questions will be asked, too, with a focus on eating Great Lakes fish. There is no cost to respondents other than their time spent in the study. The ATSDR is requesting a two-year OMB approval for a total of 188 burden hours per year. The agency is authorized to conduct this program under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA).

Proposed Project Division of Community Health (DCH) Awardee Training Needs Assessment— New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Division of Community Health (DCH) to support multi-sector, community-based programs that promote healthy living. To support these efforts, DCH announced two new cooperative agreement programs in 2014, as E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1 66380 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 216 / Friday, November 7, 2014 / Notices authorized by the Public Health Service Act. Both programs will apply public health strategies to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to opportunities for chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and management. The Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) program (Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DP14–1417) will promote the use of evidence- and practice-based strategies to create or strengthen healthy environments that make it easier for people to make healthy choices and take charge of their health. The 39 PICH awardees include both state and local governmental agencies and nongovernmental organizations. Awardees will work through multisector community coalitions of businesses, schools, nonprofit organizations, and other community organizations. Projects will serve three types of geographic areas: Large cities and urban counties, small cities and counties, and American Indian tribes. The new Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) cooperative agreement (FOA DP14–1419PPHF14) builds on previous REACH program activities that began in 1999 with a focus on racial and ethnic communities experiencing health disparities. The 49 new REACH awardees include local governmental agencies, community-based nongovernmental organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, Urban Indian Health Programs, and tribal and intertribal consortia. Of these awardees, 17 are receiving funds for basic implementation activities, and 32 are receiving funds to immediately expand their scope of work to improve health and reduce health disparities. REACH is financed in part by the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act. CDC requests OMB approval to collect the information needed to assess and prioritize the training needs of PICH and REACH awardees and key collaborators. A DCH Training Needs Assessment survey will be conducted at two points in time: Once near the beginning of the project period (first quarter of 2015) and again in the second year of the project period (last quarter of 2016). The first administration of the survey will provide an initial assessment of awardee needs at program start-up. The second administration of the needs assessment will identify any new or modified training needs that arise as awardees progress in their cooperative agreement activities. Questions within the needs assessment focus on awardee preferences for training modalities as well as facilitators and barriers to training access. Respondents will be staff members and coalition members associated with the 88 DCH awardees (49 REACH and 39 PICH). Information will be requested from four individuals affiliated with each award: The principal investigator or program manager, the lead evaluation staff member, the lead media/ communications staff member, and a coalition member. The maximum number of respondents is 352 (88 awardees × 4 respondents/awardee). Because the REACH and PICH awards aim to promote collaborative, multisector efforts, approximately 192 respondents will be associated with private sector entities, and 160 respondents will be associated with state, local, or tribal government entities. The same survey instrument will be administered to all respondents, however the estimated burden per response varies according to the respondent’s project role and responsibilities. Information will be collected using a Web-based platform. Data collection and management will be conducted by a contractor on behalf of CDC. Findings will enable DCH to develop appropriate training activities that best support awardees’ community efforts to fulfill their funded objectives. OMB approval is requested for two years. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.

Proposed Project

    Division of Community Health (DCH) Awardee Training Needs 
Assessment--New--National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and 
Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established 
the Division of Community Health (DCH) to support multi-sector, 
community-based programs that promote healthy living. To support these 
efforts, DCH announced two new cooperative agreement programs in 2014,

authorized by the Public Health Service Act. Both programs will apply 
public health strategies to reduce tobacco use and exposure, improve 
nutrition, increase physical activity, and improve access to 
opportunities for chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and 
management.
    The Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) program 
(Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DP14-1417) will promote the use 
of evidence- and practice-based strategies to create or strengthen 
healthy environments that make it easier for people to make healthy 
choices and take charge of their health. The 39 PICH awardees include 
both state and local governmental agencies and nongovernmental 
organizations. Awardees will work through multi-sector community 
coalitions of businesses, schools, nonprofit organizations, and other 
community organizations. Projects will serve three types of geographic 
areas: Large cities and urban counties, small cities and counties, and 
American Indian tribes.
    The new Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) 
cooperative agreement (FOA DP14-1419PPHF14) builds on previous REACH 
program activities that began in 1999 with a focus on racial and ethnic 
communities experiencing health disparities. The 49 new REACH awardees 
include local governmental agencies, community-based nongovernmental 
organizations, tribes and tribal organizations, Urban Indian Health 
Programs, and tribal and intertribal consortia. Of these awardees, 17 
are receiving funds for basic implementation activities, and 32 are 
receiving funds to immediately expand their scope of work to improve 
health and reduce health disparities. REACH is financed in part by the 
Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act.
    CDC requests OMB approval to collect the information needed to 
assess and prioritize the training needs of PICH and REACH awardees and 
key collaborators. A DCH Training Needs Assessment survey will be 
conducted at two points in time: Once near the beginning of the project 
period (first quarter of 2015) and again in the second year of the 
project period (last quarter of 2016). The first administration of the 
survey will provide an initial assessment of awardee needs at program 
start-up. The second administration of the needs assessment will 
identify any new or modified training needs that arise as awardees 
progress in their cooperative agreement activities. Questions within 
the needs assessment focus on awardee preferences for training 
modalities as well as facilitators and barriers to training access.
    Respondents will be staff members and coalition members associated 
with the 88 DCH awardees (49 REACH and 39 PICH). Information will be 
requested from four individuals affiliated with each award: The 
principal investigator or program manager, the lead evaluation staff 
member, the lead media/communications staff member, and a coalition 
member. The maximum number of respondents is 352 (88 awardees x 4 
respondents/awardee). Because the REACH and PICH awards aim to promote 
collaborative, multi-sector efforts, approximately 192 respondents will 
be associated with private sector entities, and 160 respondents will be 
associated with state, local, or tribal government entities.
    The same survey instrument will be administered to all respondents, 
however the estimated burden per response varies according to the 
respondent's project role and responsibilities. Information will be 
collected using a Web-based platform. Data collection and management 
will be conducted by a contractor on behalf of CDC.
    Findings will enable DCH to develop appropriate training activities 
that best support awardees' community efforts to fulfill their funded 
objectives.
    OMB approval is requested for two years. Participation is voluntary 
and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
