Information Collection Request Title: Pregnancy Assistance Fund Feasibility and Design Study (FADS). Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is requesting approval by OMB on a new collection. The Pregnancy Assistance Fund (PAF) evaluation will provide information about program design, implementation, and impacts through two core components: A rigorous assessment of program impacts and implementation, and a descriptive examination of program design. This SUMMARY: proposed information collection request includes instruments related to the indepth implementation study that complements the impact study. The data collected from these instruments will provide a detailed understanding of program implementation. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The data will serve two main purposes. First, the information will enable the study team to produce clear, detailed descriptions of each intervention that is evaluated and the counterfactual in each site. This documentation is critical for understanding the meaning of impact estimates. Second, the data will be used to assess fidelity of implementation and the quality of program delivery. This information is essential for determining whether the interventions were implemented well and whether the evaluation provided a good test of each site’s intervention. Likely Respondents: The 140 program administrators and case managers and 200 youth participants in 3 impact study sites.

To request more information on the below proposed project or to obtain a copy of the information collection plan and instruments, call 404–639–7570 or send comments to Leroy A. Richardson, 1600 Clifton Road, MS–D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an email to omb@cdc.gov. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. 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 subgroups or communities at greatest risk of infection. The current study addresses the need to assess the effectiveness of these social marketing messages aimed at increasing HIV awareness and delivering HIV prevention and testing messages among at-risk populations. This extension of an ongoing study will evaluate the Act Against AIDS (AAA) social marketing campaign aimed at increasing HIV/AIDS awareness, increasing prevention behaviors, and improving HIV testing rates among consumers. A total of 12,000 respondents were originally approved for this generic ICR (0920–0920) and since the original approval date, 1,250 respondents have participated in the surveys under the following mini ICRs: 0920–13AHP; 0920–13YR and 0920– 13DD. The information collected from each of the data collections were used to evaluate specific AAA campaign phases. We are requesting additional time to continue to survey other AAA target audiences and campaign phases and measuring exposure to each phase of the campaign and interventions implemented under AAA. Through this extension, we plan to reach the remaining approved 10,750 respondents. In order to obtain the remaining respondents, we anticipate screening approximately 17,915 individuals. Depending on the target audience for the campaign phase, the study screener will vary. The study screener may address one or more of the following items: race/ethnicity, sexual behavior, and sexual orientation. Each survey will have a core set of items asked in all rounds, as well as a module of questions relating to specific AAA activities and communication initiatives. Survey respondents will be selected from a combination of sources, including a national opt-in email list sample and respondent lists generated by partnership organizations (e.g., the National Urban League, the National Medical Association). A total of 10,750 participants will self-administer the survey at home on personal computers over a 3-year period. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.
