Further, understanding persistent ZIKV RNA in congenitally-exposed infants is also important for clinical management of infants and identifying adverse outcomes that may present several months after birth. Finally, understanding the relationship between persistence and viral load may inform clinical guidance and management of pregnant women and their families. In this study, we will estimate the prevalence and duration of persistent ZIKV RNA in pregnant women and congenitally exposed infants. We will also evaluate the diagnostic utility of PCR testing for ZIKV RNA on capillary blood and determine if persistent ZIKV RNA in pregnant women is associated with adverse outcomes or infection in infants. Finally, we will examine the association of different factors that are associated with persistent detection of ZIKV RNA in pregnant women and congenitally exposed infants. This study will provide critical data in establishing guidance for testing in pregnant women and congenitally exposed infants. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 785.

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.

Second, the system allows for identification and collection of information on other housing-related risk factors.

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-14-1408) 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 
housing-related 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. 
HHLPSS offers a coordinated, comprehensive, and 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.

previously considered harmless can have harmful effects in adults, such 
as decreased renal function and increased risk for hypertension and

requested burden hours or the data collection.
