Background and Brief Description Drug overdose is the leading cause of injury death in the United States. Opioid-prescribing behaviors are associated with an increased risk for morbidity and mortality. While opioid pain relievers can play an important role in the management of some types of pain, the overprescribing of these powerful drugs has fueled a national epidemic of prescription drug abuse and overdose. To reverse this complex epidemic and prevent future overdose, abuse, and misuse, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides support to states to improve surveillance. Support and guidance for these programs have been provided through cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance administered by CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seeks new OMB approval to collect information from awardees funded under the Prescription Drug Overdose Prevention for States (CDC–RFA–CE15–1501) cooperative agreement, for program monitoring and improvement among funded state health departments. Awardees will report progress and activity information to CDC on an annual schedule using an Excel-based fillable electronic templates, pre-populated to the extent possible by CDC staff. In Year 1, each awardee will have additional burden related to initial collection of the reporting tools. After completing the initial population of the tools, pertinent information only needs to be updated for each annual report. The same instruments will be used for all information collection and reporting. CDC will use the information collected to monitor each awardee’s progress and to identify facilitators and challenges to program implementation and achievement of outcomes. Monitoring allows CDC to determine whether an awardee is meeting performance and budget goals and to make adjustments in the type and level of technical assistance provided to them, as needed, to support attainment of their performance measures. The total estimated annualized burden for this collection is 812 hours. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation in the information collection is required as a condition of funding.

risk for morbidity and mortality. While opioid pain relievers can play 
an important role in the management of some types of pain, the 
overprescribing of these powerful drugs has fueled a national epidemic 
of prescription drug abuse and overdose. To reverse this complex 
epidemic and prevent future overdose, abuse, and misuse, the Centers

provided through cooperative agreement funding and technical assistance 
administered by CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control 
(NCIPC).
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seeks new OMB 
approval to collect information from awardees funded under the
