Proposed Project Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (HHLPSS) (OMB Control Number 0920–0931, expires 05/ 31/2018)—Extension—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The overarching goal of the Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (HHLPSS) is to support healthy homes surveillance activities at the state and national levels. CDC is requesting an 18-month extension to collect data from up to 40 state and local Healthy Homes Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs (CLPPP) and the state-based Adult Blood Lead Epidemiology and Surveillance (ABLES) programs. The state programs will report information (e.g., presence of lead paint, age of housing, occupation of adults and type of housing) to the CDC under a one-year cost extension of the Fiscal Year 2014 Funding Opportunity Announcement (Funding Opportunity Announcement Number CDC–RFA–14– systematic public health approach to eliminate multiple housing-related health hazards. HHLPSS enables flexibility to evaluate housing where the risk for lead poisoning is high, regardless of whether children less than 6 years of age currently reside there. Thus, HHLPSS supports CDC efforts for primary prevention of childhood and adult lead poisoning. Over the past several decades, there has been a remarkable reduction in environmental sources of lead, improved protection from occupational lead exposure, and an overall decreasing trend in the prevalence of elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in U.S. adults. As a result, the U.S. national BLL geometric mean among adults was 1.2 mg/dL during 2009–2010. Nonetheless, lead exposures continue to occur at unacceptable levels. Current research continues to find that BLLs previously considered harmless can have harmful effects in adults, such as decreased renal function and increased risk for hypertension and essential tremor at BLLs <10 mg/dL. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated time burden is 640 hours. There are no changes to the requested burden hours or the data collection. 1408) titled ‘‘(PPHF) Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention.’’ The 18-month extension will allow CDC to collect data for the third-year supplement, which represents the fourth and final year of awardee blood lead surveillance data under this program announcement. Over the last three years, seven states have adopted the HHLPPS and 13 are in beta-testing. Since October 2014, CDC has funded up to 40 state and local blood lead surveillance programs. All of these programs or their subcontractors at the local level are submitting lead surveillance data for an additional year. The objectives for this surveillance system remain two-fold. First, the HHLPSS allows CDC to track, systematically, how the state and local programs conduct case management and follow-up of residents with housingrelated health outcomes. Second, the system allows for identification and collection of information on other housing-related risk factors. Childhood and adult lead poisoning is just one of many adverse health conditions related to common housing deficiencies. Multiple hazards in housing (e.g., mold, vermin, radon and the lack of safety devices) continue to affect, adversely, the health of residents.

Proposed Project

Operationalizing CDC Guidelines to Determine Risks, and Define, Locate, 
and Reach At-Risk Populations in Public Health Emergencies--New--Office 
of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Risk Assessment, Mapping, and Planning (RAMP) tool is currently 
being developed by CDC for public health and medical emergency planners 
(especially Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Hospital 
Preparedness Program awardees) to assess and quantify risk, identify 
and map at-risk populations, and to determine response objectives for 
hazard-specific public health emergency plans at all jurisdictional 
levels in the United States.
    To assist in developing this tool, CDC will conduct key informant 
interviews/focus groups with public health and emergency management 
professionals from across the United States. To understand the needs of 
at-risk populations, CDC will also administer an anonymous survey to 
respondents from Los Angeles County Department of Public Health 
clinics.
    CDC seeks to obtain subject matter expertise and feedback for pilot 
testing the RAMP tool and anonymous demographic information from LA 
County DPH clinic guests. CDC will use the data to develop the RAMP 
tool.
    Public health and emergency manager respondents in pre-identified 
partner jurisdictions will participate in the interview and focus 
groups.
    CDC will offer Los Angeles Department of Public Health Clinic 
guests the Community Emergency Preparedness Survey in order to 
determine community perspectives on several emergency preparedness and 
response topics. CDC will offer the Community Emergency Preparedness 
Survey anonymously to three separate types of community members: LA 
County Public Health Center Clients, LA County Community Partner 
Stakeholders, and LA County Community Residents.
    CDC will collect information with the use of paper surveys. CDC 
will enter the information from the paper survey into a secured 
database. CDC will lock all paper surveys in the secure offices of the 
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Emergency Preparedness 
and Response Division. CDC will disseminate and report results in 
aggregate form only. The total number of estimated annual burden hours 
is 226. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
