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. Assess information collection costs. Proposed Project ATSDR Communication Activities Survey (ACAS) (OMB Control No. 0923– 0055, Exp. 6/30/2020)—Extension— Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Background and Brief Description The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) serves the public through responsive public health actions to promote healthy and safe environments and to prevent harmful exposures. The agency aims to work effectively with communities in proximity to hazardous waste sites by listening to and understanding their health concerns and seeking their E:\FR\FM\03APN1.SGM 03APN1 18978 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 65 / Friday, April 3, 2020 / Notices guidance on where, when, and how to take public health actions. Community members are key participants in the agency’s public health assessment process and should be actively involved in decisions that impact their community. Thus, agency’s goals for this extension information collection request (ICR) titled the ‘‘ATSDR Communication Activities Survey (ACAS)’’ (OMB Control No. 0923–0055, expiration date 06/30/2020) are to continue to ascertain the effectiveness of, and to assess the differences and the consistency of, the delivery of ATSDR activities and respondent perceptions across sites and over time. ATSDR will use the ACAS to: (1) Determine how effectively it’s site teams engage community members; (2) discover how well ATSDR provides effective, clear, and consistent communication and information on how to promote healthy and safe environments; (3) understand whether the agency’s activities are helping the communities address environmental issues; and (4) improve ATSDR’s activities to make a greater impact within the communities served. During 2018, ATSDR implemented the ATSDR Community Activities Survey (ACAS) to evaluate its risk communication efforts. One hundred and twenty-five surveys were collected from seven sites (62% paper/38% online). Over the next three years, recruitment will continue to occur at communities where ATSDR and state or local agencies have implemented site activities to address environmental issues. For each engaged community, stakeholders may include, but are not limited to, state and local environmental health department employees, such as environmental health assessors, toxicologists, and departmental officials. The mix of respondents will be approximately 75% community members (n=125 per year) and 25% agency stakeholders (n=42 per year). Trained ATSDR contractors will have a table set up at the entrance of the community meeting where community meeting attendees will pick up a fact sheet which explains what ATSDR does, and the purpose of ATSDR’s site activities and the survey. At the end of ATSDR public community meetings, there will be an announcement to ask interested attendees to take the survey. All interested attendees will sign in and provide their contact information, their preferred mode for taking the survey (inperson, online or over the phone), and whether they are a community member or an agency stakeholder. The ACAS will preferably be self-administered right after the public community meetings. If this is not a convenient time for the respondent, the ACAS may be completed online or by phone. We estimate that approximately 80% of respondents will choose the selfadministered ACAS, 15% will choose the online ACAS, and 5% will choose the telephone ACAS. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. There are no changes to the estimated number of respondents, and the total annual time burden requested remains at 49 hours per year. the ACAS will be used to assess a set of effectiveness indicators for ATSDR site-specific activities about the respondents’ involvement, knowledge, satisfaction, observations, and opinions about ATSDR’s community engagement and educational outreach efforts to inform communities. The indicators will measure ATSDR effectiveness in the following respondent areas: (1) Their involvement with the site activities; (2) how they received, and prefer to receive, ATSDR information; (3) their knowledge and understanding of ATSDR site activities and how to reduce hazardous exposures; (4) their observations and opinions of ATSDR’s role in community preparedness; (5) their self-evaluation on their risk of exposure to possible environmental hazards; (6) their demographic profile; (7) their environmental concerns; and (8) any additional feedback. ATSDR is seeking a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act clearance for this extension ICR. ATSDR anticipates that approximately six to seven sites will be engaged for feedback per year (or about 20 sites over the next three years). Each year, ATSDR will recruit approximately 167 individuals per year, aged 18 and older, to participate in the ACAS where ATSDR is holding public community meetings. Therefore, respondents will include approximately 24 to 28 community members and agency stakeholders per meeting (six to seven meetings per year). The community members may include, but are not limited to, the general public, community leaders, faith-based leaders, and business leaders.

Disease Registry (ATSDR).

Background and Brief Description

    The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) serves 
the public through responsive public health actions to promote healthy 
and safe environments and to prevent harmful exposures. The agency aims 
to work effectively with communities in proximity to hazardous waste 
sites by listening to and understanding their health concerns and

guidance on where, when, and how to take public health actions.
    Community members are key participants in the agency's public 
health assessment process and should be actively involved in decisions 
that impact their community. Thus, agency's goals for this extension 
information collection request (ICR) titled the ``ATSDR Communication 
Activities Survey (ACAS)'' (OMB Control No. 0923-0055, expiration date 
06/30/2020) are to continue to ascertain the effectiveness of, and to 
assess the differences and the consistency of, the delivery of ATSDR 
activities and respondent perceptions across sites and over time. ATSDR 
will use the ACAS to: (1) Determine how effectively it's site teams 
engage community members; (2) discover how well ATSDR provides 
effective, clear, and consistent communication and information on how 
to promote healthy and safe environments; (3) understand whether the 
agency's activities are helping the communities address environmental 
issues; and (4) improve ATSDR's activities to make a greater impact 
within the communities served. During 2018, ATSDR implemented the ATSDR 
Community Activities Survey (ACAS) to evaluate its risk communication 
efforts. One hundred and twenty-five surveys were collected from seven 
sites (62% paper/38% online).
    Over the next three years, recruitment will continue to occur at 
communities where ATSDR and state or local agencies have implemented 
site activities to address environmental issues. For each engaged 
community, the ACAS will be used to assess a set of effectiveness 
indicators for ATSDR site-specific activities about the respondents' 
involvement, knowledge, satisfaction, observations, and opinions about 
ATSDR's community engagement and educational outreach efforts to inform 
communities. The indicators will measure ATSDR effectiveness in the 
following respondent areas: (1) Their involvement with the site 
activities; (2) how they received, and prefer to receive, ATSDR 
information; (3) their knowledge and understanding of ATSDR site 
activities and how to reduce hazardous exposures; (4) their 
observations and opinions of ATSDR's role in community preparedness; 
(5) their self-evaluation on their risk of exposure to possible 
environmental hazards; (6) their demographic profile; (7) their 
environmental concerns; and (8) any additional feedback.
    ATSDR is seeking a three-year Paperwork Reduction Act clearance for 
this extension ICR. ATSDR anticipates that approximately six to seven 
sites will be engaged for feedback per year (or about 20 sites over the 
next three years). Each year, ATSDR will recruit approximately 167 
individuals per year, aged 18 and older, to participate in the ACAS 
where ATSDR is holding public community meetings. Therefore, 
respondents will include approximately 24 to 28 community members and 
agency stakeholders per meeting (six to seven meetings per year). The 
community members may include, but are not limited to, the general 
public, community leaders, faith-based leaders, and business leaders. 
The agency stakeholders may include, but are not limited to, state and 
local environmental health department employees, such as environmental 
health assessors, toxicologists, and departmental officials. The mix of 
respondents will be approximately 75% community members (n=125 per 
year) and 25% agency stakeholders (n=42 per year).
    Trained ATSDR contractors will have a table set up at the entrance 
of the community meeting where community meeting attendees will pick up 
a fact sheet which explains what ATSDR does, and the purpose of ATSDR's 
site activities and the survey. At the end of ATSDR public community 
meetings, there will be an announcement to ask interested attendees to 
take the survey. All interested attendees will sign in and provide 
their contact information, their preferred mode for taking the survey 
(in-person, online or over the phone), and whether they are a community 
member or an agency stakeholder. The ACAS will preferably be self-
administered right after the public community meetings. If this is not 
a convenient time for the respondent, the ACAS may be completed online 
or by phone. We estimate that approximately 80% of respondents will 
choose the self-administered ACAS, 15% will choose the online ACAS, and 
5% will choose the telephone ACAS.
    There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. There 
are no changes to the estimated number of respondents, and the total 
annual time burden requested remains at 49 hours per year.
