SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5.

PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66901 Background and Brief Description Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and health care costs for cancer care are expected to rise to $158 billion by 2020. Addressing this public health problem requires primary prevention, early detection and treatment, support for cancer survivors, and a reduction in health disparities. Providing support to state, tribal, territorial and local organizations to implement evidencebased strategies has the potential to impact population-level cancer outcomes and reduce the burden of cancer. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) has been a primary funder for state and community-based cancer control interventions since its inception in the late 1990s. The program supports states and communities in developing a comprehensive approach to cancer prevention and control that includes supporting an infrastructure for state, local, and population-based interventions and multi-sectoral partnerships and coalitions. Currently, NCCCP supports 66 cancer control program grantees including programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and in a number of tribes, tribal organizations, and U.S. Associated Pacific Islands/territories. In addition, CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) also has worked to build state health department infrastructure and capacity to conduct coordinated comprehensive tobacco prevention and control activities which contribute to cancer health outcomes. In striving to build capacity and maximize the impact of CDC’s funded programs, CDC has focused on developing and implementing innovative programs to enhance TTA delivered to NCCCP awardees. CDC funds two awardees under a cooperative agreement—Provision of Technical Assistance and Training to Assure Comprehensive Cancer Control Outcomes (DP18–1805). DP18–1805 awardees are charged with developing and delivering high-quality TTA for NCCCP funded programs, coalition members, and partners focused on improving implementation of evidencebased strategies for cancer prevention and control. The TTA activities DP18– 1805 awardees implement include; (1) conducting needs assessments, (2) E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1 66902 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 235 / Friday, December 6, 2019 / Notices developing framework for building CCC capacity, (3) coordinating and collaborating with existing partners, (4) developing a TTA plan, (5) implementing a TTA plan and conducting performance monitoring and continuous quality improvement; and 6) conducting a comprehensive evaluation of TTA. CDC proposes to conduct an assessment DP18–1805 to: (1) Document the nature of the TTA provided by DP18–1805 awardees and the extent to which the cooperative agreement was able to achieve planned short-term outcomes, and (2) identify the extent to which DP18–1805 TTA efforts contributed to NCCCP funded programs’ achievement in program outcomes. There are no other data collection efforts currently underway to assess implementation or perceived effectiveness of TTA administered under DP18–1805. This information collection request will involve two complementary data collection efforts: (1) Case studies of DP18–1805 awardees (consisting of interviews with DP18–1805 program managers/directors, evaluators, and partners) and (2) a cross-sectional webbased survey administered to NCCCP program directors, coalition members, and partners. The case studies will be used to explore how DP18–1805 awardees are implementing their respective cooperative agreements and administering TTA to NCCCP awardees; the factors that affect the implementation of specific TTA components; and the extent to which they were able to achieve planned short- term outcomes. The web-based survey will inform CDC’s understanding of the reach of DP18–1805 TTA efforts; elicit information from NCCCP programs and coalitions about the TTA received, including type, dosage, frequency and format; and assess the perceptions of the effectiveness of the TTA. CDC will use findings from the assessment to inform development of future TTA efforts to more effectively and efficiently support NCCCP’s partner organizations. OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is voluntary and respondents will not receive incentives for participation. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. CDC requests approval for an estimated 152 annual burden hours associated with this activity.

1193)--Reinstatement with Change--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, 
and health care costs for cancer care are expected to rise to $158 
billion by 2020. Addressing this public health problem requires primary 
prevention, early detection and treatment, support for cancer 
survivors, and a reduction in health disparities. Providing support to 
state, tribal, territorial and local organizations to implement 
evidence-based strategies has the potential to impact population-level 
cancer outcomes and reduce the burden of cancer.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National 
Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) has been a primary funder 
for state and community-based cancer control interventions since its 
inception in the late 1990s. The program supports states and 
communities in developing a comprehensive approach to cancer prevention 
and control that includes supporting an infrastructure for state, 
local, and population-based interventions and multi-sectoral 
partnerships and coalitions. Currently, NCCCP supports 66 cancer 
control program grantees including programs in all 50 states, the 
District of Columbia, and in a number of tribes, tribal organizations, 
and U.S. Associated Pacific Islands/territories. In addition, CDC's 
Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) also has worked to build state 
health department infrastructure and capacity to conduct coordinated 
comprehensive tobacco prevention and control activities which 
contribute to cancer health outcomes.
    In striving to build capacity and maximize the impact of CDC's 
funded programs, CDC has focused on developing and implementing 
innovative programs to enhance TTA delivered to NCCCP awardees. CDC 
funds two awardees under a cooperative agreement--Provision of 
Technical Assistance and Training to Assure Comprehensive Cancer 
Control Outcomes (DP18-1805). DP18-1805 awardees are charged with 
developing and delivering high-quality TTA for NCCCP funded programs, 
coalition members, and partners focused on improving implementation of 
evidence-based strategies for cancer prevention and control. The TTA 
activities DP18-1805 awardees implement include; (1) conducting needs 
assessments, (2)

[[Page 66902]]

developing framework for building CCC capacity, (3) coordinating and 
collaborating with existing partners, (4) developing a TTA plan, (5) 
implementing a TTA plan and conducting performance monitoring and 
continuous quality improvement; and 6) conducting a comprehensive 
evaluation of TTA.
    CDC proposes to conduct an assessment DP18-1805 to: (1) Document 
the nature of the TTA provided by DP18-1805 awardees and the extent to 
which the cooperative agreement was able to achieve planned short-term 
outcomes, and (2) identify the extent to which DP18-1805 TTA efforts 
contributed to NCCCP funded programs' achievement in program outcomes. 
There are no other data collection efforts currently underway to assess 
implementation or perceived effectiveness of TTA administered under 
DP18-1805.
    This information collection request will involve two complementary 
data collection efforts: (1) Case studies of DP18-1805 awardees 
(consisting of interviews with DP18-1805 program managers/directors, 
evaluators, and partners) and (2) a cross-sectional web-based survey 
administered to NCCCP program directors, coalition members, and 
partners. The case studies will be used to explore how DP18-1805 
awardees are implementing their respective cooperative agreements and 
administering TTA to NCCCP awardees; the factors that affect the 
implementation of specific TTA components; and the extent to which they 
were able to achieve planned short-term outcomes. The web-based survey 
will inform CDC's understanding of the reach of DP18-1805 TTA efforts; 
elicit information from NCCCP programs and coalitions about the TTA 
received, including type, dosage, frequency and format; and assess the 
perceptions of the effectiveness of the TTA. CDC will use findings from 
the assessment to inform development of future TTA efforts to more 
effectively and efficiently support NCCCP's partner organizations.
    OMB approval is requested for three years. Participation is 
voluntary and respondents will not receive incentives for 
participation. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. 
CDC requests approval for an estimated 152 annual burden hours 
associated with this activity.
