SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. 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; (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 PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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. Proposed Project Division of Community Health (DCH) Training and Technical Assistance: Needs Assessment and Satisfaction Surveys (OMB No. 0920–1076, exp. 7/ 31/2017)—Revision—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), Division of Community Health (DCH), requests OMB approval to revise an ongoing information collection. The original information collection plan was based on two needs assessments conducted with DCH awardees at two different time points. In the proposed Revision, CDC describes plans to assess awardee satisfaction with the training and technical assistance (TA) being provided to them, in lieu of conducting the second needs assessment. The project title is being revised to reflect changes in the information collection plan. The original project title was ‘‘DCH Awardee Training Needs Assessment.’’ In 2014, DCH announced the availability of funding for two cooperative agreement programs authorized by the Public Health Service Act: Partnerships for Community Health (PICH) and Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH). The REACH cooperative agreement is financed in part by the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act. The cooperative agreements are designed to address chronic diseases and risk factors for chronic diseases, including physical inactivity, poor diet, obesity, and tobacco use. These risk factors contribute to chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Over three-year funding periods, PICH and REACH awardees are providing support for implementation of broad, evidence- and practice-based policy and environmental improvements in large and small cities, urban and rural areas, tribes, multisector community coalitions, and racial and ethnic communities experiencing chronic disease disparities. PICH and REACH awardees include a mix of state, E:\FR\FM\20JAN1.SGM 20JAN1
