Applicants selected for funding must work with the CDC-funded CBA providers to develop and implement a Capacity Building Assistance Strategic Plan (CBASP). The information collected via this process will be used to construct a CBASP for each funded organization in collaboration with CDC’s Capacity Building Branch (CBB). CBA Providers will provide technical assistance and training to ensure that the CBOs and Partnerships have the skills and support they need to successfully implement their CDCfunded HIV High Impact Prevention program. CBA providers will utilize the CBO CBA Assessent Tool which offers a mixed-method data collection approach with close-ended, and open-ended questions. CBOs will complete and submit the completed web-based Tool, which will be discussed, and needs confirmed, during a follow-up phone contact assessment. A follow-up site visit may be recommended for CBOs with dire needs (up to 20%), which will be scheduled upon approval by the Project Officer and Program Consultant. Data from all completed Tools will be analyzed and used to develop a CBA Strategic Plan (CBASP) which will be housed in the Capacity Assistance Request Information System (managed by the Capacity Building Branch), in the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention and consulted by CBA Providers assigned to respond to the prioritized CBOs’ CBA needs. By the end of the project, the participating CBOs and Partnerships will have tailored CBA strategic plans that they can use to help sustain their programs across and beyond the life of their funding. Based on these plans, the CBA providers in collaboration with CDC will be able to better identify and address those needs most reported by CBOs. Finally, the Capacity Building Branch will be able to refine its approach to conceptualizing and providing CBA on a national level in the most cost-effective manner possible. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total annual burden hours are 240.

Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C.), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on the extent and nature of illness and disability of the population of the United States. The annual National Health Interview Survey is a major source of general statistics on the health of the U.S. mental health. Questions from 2016 on balance and Hepatitis B and C screening have been removed. In addition to these core and supplemental modules, a subsample of NHIS respondents and/or members of commercial survey panels may be identified to participate in short, web-based methodological and cognitive testing activities that will inform the upcoming 2018 NHIS questionnaire redesign. The aims of these standalone assessments include pilot testing new and/or updated questionnaire items, evaluating the impact of different categorical response option formats on answer choices, and measuring respondent comprehension of health care-related terms and concepts. In accordance with the 1995 initiative to increase the integration of surveys within the DHHS, respondents to the NHIS serve as the sampling frame for the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The NHIS has long been used by government, academic, and private researchers to evaluate both general health and specific issues, such as smoking, diabetes, health care coverage, and access to health care. It is a leading source of data for the Congressionallymandated ‘‘Health US’’ and related publications, as well as the single most important source of statistics to track progress toward the National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, ‘‘Healthy People 2020.’’ There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.

Proposed Project Monitoring and Reporting System for the Prescription Drug Overdose Prevention for States Cooperative agreement—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 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. There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
