Proposed Project

    Monitoring and Reporting for the Core State Violence and Injury 
Prevention Program Cooperative Agreement--New--National Center for 
Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seeks new OMB 
approval to collect information from awardees funded under the Core 
State Violence and Injury Prevention Program cooperative agreement 
program (Core SVIPP). CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and 
Control (NCIPC) is committed to working with its partners to promote 
action that reduces injuries, violence, and disabilities, by providing 
leadership in identifying priorities, promoting prevention strategies, 
developing useful tools, and monitoring the effectiveness of Injury and 
Violence Prevention (IVP) program activities. Unintentional and 
violence-related injuries and their consequences are the leading causes 
of death for the first four decades of life, regardless of gender, 
race, or socioeconomic status.
    More than 192,000 individuals in the United States die each year as 
a result of unintentional injuries and violence, and more than 31 
million others suffer non-fatal injuries requiring emergency department 
visits each year. Support

and guidance for programs addressing IVP have been provided through 
cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance administered by 
NCIPC. Awardees report progress and activity information to NCIPC on an 
annual schedule using three documents: Annual Progress Report, 
Evaluation and Performance Management Plan, and Injury Indicator 
Spreadsheet. Burden is expected to vary based on awardee funding type. 
For example all awardees who successfully compete will be funded for 
the BASE component. However, awardees will also have the opportunity to 
compete to be funded for one or both of the Enhanced components. It is 
expected that those funded for Enhanced components will have a greater 
burden, given the requirement to report on more domains of activity.
    Information to be collected will provide crucial data for program 
performance monitoring and provide CDC with the capacity to respond in 
a timely manner to requests for information about the program from the

driven technical assistance, and disseminate the most current 
surveillance data on unintentional and intentional injuries.

hours. OMB approval is requested for three years. The only cost to
