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; 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; and 5. Assess information collection costs. Proposed Project Program Evaluation of CDC’s Core State Injury Prevention Program—New— National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Background and Brief Description CDC requests OMB approval for three years for this new data collection. Approval is requested to collect information from awardees funded under the Core State Injury Prevention Program cooperative agreement, hereafter known as Core SIPP. This program is a new initiative. As part of the annual program evaluation data collection, recipients will submit data PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30939 on enhancements in program implementation capacity, leveraged resources/funds through economic indicators, challenges and successes, programmatic improvements, and impact through interviews. Finally, awardees will annually submit injury and violence prevention surveillance data using an Excel-based Injury Indicator Spreadsheets and Special Emphasis Reports. Information to be collected will provide crucial data for program evaluation and provide CDC with the ability to respond in a timely manner to requests for information about the program from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the White House, and Congress. It will also provide increased capacity, help understand how the cooperative agreement increases potential sustainability though improved capacity, provide data-driven technical assistance, and disseminate the most current surveillance data on unintentional and intentional injuries. Authority for CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) to collect these data is granted by Section 301 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241). This Act gives federal health agencies, such as CDC, broad authority to collect data and participate in other public health activities, including this type of program implementation evaluation. The Core SIPP evaluation will collect several types of information from recipients over the course of the funding cycle. This information will be used to: (1) Evaluate and track outcomes at the recipient- and program-levels as they relate to injury prevention-focused infrastructure development, surveillance system development and use, and partnerships, to prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and transportation-related injuries. Recipient- and program-level identification of disproportionately affected populations and subsequent public health actions taken to address injury-related health disparities will also be assessed. (2) Identify technical assistance needs of individual recipients and this recipient cohort, so that the CDC team can appropriately deploy resources to support recipients. (3) Identify practice-based evidence for injury prevention public health actions to advance the field through future partnerships, program design, and publications.

OD2A is a cooperative agreement (CDC–RFA– CE19–1904) funded in 2019 to focus on comprehensive and interdisciplinary opioid overdose prevention efforts in 47 state health departments, 16 localities, Puerto Rico, Washington DC, and the North Mariana Islands. This program consists of two required components— a surveillance component and a prevention component. OD2A recipients implement a combination of activities across 10 strategies within these components in order to gain access to high quality, complete, and timelier data on opioid prescribing and overdoses and to use those data to inform prevention and response efforts in their jurisdictions. Training and technical assistance (TA) is essential to building knowledge and strengthening the capacity of recipients to implement and evaluate OD2A program strategies. CDC will develop and deploy a TA hub (hereafter referred to as the OD2A TA Center) to deliver comprehensive technical assistance and training to support the successful implementation and E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Background and Brief Description

    CDC requests OMB approval for three years for this new data 
collection. Approval is requested to collect information from awardees 
funded under the Core State Injury Prevention Program cooperative 
agreement, hereafter known as Core SIPP. This program is a new 
initiative. As part of the annual program evaluation data collection, 
recipients will submit data on enhancements in program implementation 
capacity, leveraged resources/funds through economic indicators, 
challenges and successes, programmatic improvements, and impact through 
interviews. Finally, awardees will annually submit injury and violence 
prevention surveillance data using an Excel-based Injury Indicator 
Spreadsheets and Special Emphasis Reports.
    Information to be collected will provide crucial data for program 
evaluation and provide CDC with the ability to respond in a timely 
manner to requests for information about the program from the 
Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the White House, and 
Congress. It will also provide increased capacity, help understand how 
the cooperative agreement increases potential sustainability though 
improved capacity, provide data-driven technical assistance, and 
disseminate the most current surveillance data on unintentional and 
intentional injuries.
    Authority for CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and 
Control (NCIPC) to collect these data is granted by Section 301 of the 
Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241). This Act gives federal 
health agencies, such as CDC, broad authority to collect data and

disparities will also be assessed.

    (3) Identify practice-based evidence for injury prevention public 
health actions to advance the field through future partnerships,

    (4) Inform continuous quality improvement activities over the 
course of the funding period, to include quarterly and annual strategic 
planning for current and later iterations of this program under future 
funding.
