Proposed Project Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS–NET) Program (OMB #0920–0792, expiration 9/30/2018)— Revision—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is requesting a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) approval for the revision to the Environmental Health Specialists (EHS– Net) Program. The EHS–Net program focuses on identifying the environmental causes of foodborne illness. OMB approved the generic information collection for the EHS–Net program in October 2008, 2012, and 2015. To date, EHS–Net has had five genICs. This revision will provide OMB clearance for EHS–Net data collections conducted in 2018 through 2021. The program is revising the generic information collection request in the following ways: (1) The burden hours have increased to allow for additional statistical designs. The number of restaurants per site (8 EHS–Net sites, which has remained the same) has been increased from 47 to 50 restaurants (totaling 400 restaurants); the sample size was increased to detect a greater odds ratio and establish a stronger power. (2) The number of respondents has increased to gather additional food worker responses per establishment. Collecting data from additional food workers (increased to 10 food workers per restaurant from 1 food worker per restaurant, totaling 4,000 food workers) will help minimize the potential bias of only having one worker represent all of food workers in a given establishment. We expect to conduct up to three studies in a 5-year cooperative period; this is based on a more accurate study schedule in a 5-year EHS–Net cooperative agreement. The goal of this information collection is to improve food safety and reduce foodborne illness, which supports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health People 2020 Goal. Reducing foodborne illness first requires identification and understanding of the environmental factors that cause these illnesses. We need to know how and why food becomes contaminated with foodborne illness pathogens. This information can then be used to determine effective food safety prevention methods. Ultimately, these actions can lead to increased regulatory program effectiveness and decreased foodborne illness. The purpose of the information collection is to gather data that will help us identify and understand environmental factors associated with foodborne illness. Environmental factors associated with foodborne illness include both food safety practices (e.g., inadequate cleaning practices) and the factors in the environment associated with those practices (e.g., worker and retail food establishment characteristics). The information collected through this collection will be used to: (a) Describe retail food establishment food handling and food safety practices and manager/worker and establishment characteristics, (b) Determine how retail food establishment and worker characteristics are related to food handling and food safety practices. This program is conducted by the Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS–Net), a collaborative project of CDC, FDA, USDA, and local and state sites. Through this collection, we will continue to collect data from those who prepare food (i.e., food workers) and on the environments in which the food is prepared (i.e., retail food establishment kitchens). Thus, data collection methods for this generic package include: (1) Screener, (2) manager and food worker interviews/ surveys, and (3) observation of kitchen/ restaurant environments. Both methods allow data collection on food safety practices and environmental factors associated with those practices. For each data collection, we will collect data in approximately 50 retail food establishments per site. Thus, there will be approximately 400 establishments per data collection (an estimated 8 sites * 50 establishments). The total estimated annual burden for each data collection will be 1,777 hours.

OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing an information collection activity to assess the impact, through rigorous evaluation, of participation in the Family Unification Program (FUP) on child welfare involvement and child maltreatment. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds and administers FUP. Through the program, vouchers are provided to families for whom the lack of adequate housing is a primary factor in (a) the imminent placement of the family’s child, or children, in out-of-home care or (b) the delay in the discharge of the child, or children, to the family from out-of-home-care. The program aims to prevent children’s placement in out-ofhome care, promote family reunification for children placed in out-of-home care, and decrease new reports of abuse and neglect. Vouchers may also be provided to youth transitioning from foster care who do not have adequate housing, although this population is not the focus of this evaluation. The evaluation will contribute to understanding the effects of FUP on project participants’ child welfare involvement. The evaluation will be conducted in approximately ten sites, with random assignment of FUP-eligible families to program and control groups. The evaluation consists of both an impact study and an implementation study. Data collection for the impact study will be exclusively through administrative data. Data collection for the implementation study will be through site visits and collection of program data. Data collection activities will span 3 years. Implementation study data collection will occur at three points in time: (1) Prior to the implementation (‘‘first site visit’’), (2) 6–9 months into the implementation (‘‘second site visit’’, and (3) 18–21 months into implementation (‘‘third site visit’’). Semi-structured interviews will be conducted with agency/organization management (first and second site visits) and FUP management (second and third site visits), and focus groups will be conducted with front-line staff (second and third site visits). In addition, semi-structured interviews will be conducted with parents (second and third site visits). Program data, collected using a housing status form, a referral form and questionnaires about housing assistance and other services, will be completed by frontline staff. FUP management staff will complete an online randomization tool and a form (‘‘dashboard’’) to facilitate monitoring of the evaluation. This evaluation is part of a larger project to help ACF build the evidence base in child welfare through rigorous evaluation of programs, practices, and policies. It will also contribute to HUD’s understanding of how housing can serve as a platform for improving quality of life. Respondents: Public housing authority staff, public child welfare agency staff, Continuums of Care (CoC) staff, other service provider staff, and the parent of families housed using FUP vouchers.

#0920-0792, expiration 9/30/2018)--Revision--National Center for 
Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is requesting a three-year 
Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) approval for the revision to the 
Environmental Health Specialists (EHS-Net) Program. The EHS-Net program 
focuses on identifying the environmental causes of foodborne illness. 
OMB approved the generic information collection for the EHS-Net program 
in October 2008, 2012, and 2015. To date, EHS-Net has had five genICs.
    This revision will provide OMB clearance for EHS-Net data 
collections conducted in 2018 through 2021. The program is revising the 
generic information collection request in the following ways:
    (1) The burden hours have increased to allow for additional 
statistical designs. The number of restaurants per site (8 EHS-Net 
sites, which has remained the same) has been increased from 47 to 50 
restaurants (totaling 400 restaurants); the sample size was increased 
to detect a greater odds ratio and establish a stronger power.
    (2) The number of respondents has increased to gather additional 
food worker responses per establishment. Collecting data from 
additional food workers (increased to 10 food workers per restaurant 
from 1 food worker per restaurant, totaling 4,000 food workers) will 
help minimize the potential bias of only having one worker represent 
all of food workers in a given establishment.
    We expect to conduct up to three studies in a 5-year cooperative 
period; this is based on a more accurate study schedule in a 5-year 
EHS-Net cooperative agreement.
    The goal of this information collection is to improve food safety 
and reduce foodborne illness, which supports the U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services' Health People 2020 Goal. Reducing foodborne 
illness first requires identification and understanding of the 
environmental factors that cause these illnesses. We need to know how 
and why food becomes contaminated with foodborne illness pathogens. 
This information can then be used to determine effective food safety 
prevention methods. Ultimately, these actions can lead to increased 
regulatory program effectiveness and decreased foodborne illness. The 
purpose of the information collection is to gather data that will help 
us identify and understand environmental factors associated with 
foodborne illness. Environmental factors associated with foodborne 
illness include both food safety practices (e.g., inadequate cleaning 
practices) and the factors in the environment associated with those 
practices (e.g., worker and retail food establishment characteristics). 
The information collected through this collection will be used to:
    (a) Describe retail food establishment food handling and food 
safety practices and manager/worker and establishment characteristics,
    (b) Determine how retail food establishment and worker 
characteristics are related to food handling and food safety practices.
    This program is conducted by the Environmental Health Specialists 
Network (EHS-Net), a collaborative project of CDC, FDA, USDA, and local 
and state sites. Through this collection, we will continue to collect 
data from those who prepare food (i.e., food workers) and on the

package include: (1) Screener, (2) manager and food worker interviews/
surveys, and (3) observation of kitchen/restaurant environments. Both 
methods allow data collection on food safety practices and 
environmental factors associated with those practices.
    For each data collection, we will collect data in approximately 50 
retail food establishments per site. Thus, there will be approximately 
400 establishments per data collection (an estimated 8 sites * 50 
establishments). The total estimated annual burden for each data 
collection will be 1,777 hours.
