of the impact study findings.
    The proposed information collection activities are: (1) Baseline 
data collection: Collection of characteristics data on all study 
participants as they enroll in the study. Data will be entered into the 
Random Assignment, Participant Tracking Enrollment, and Reporting 
(RAPTER) system; (2) First follow-up survey: Collection of outcome data
