Abstract: NCCC program members have been a crucial part of AmeriCorps COVID–19 pandemic response as personnel on vaccine distribution mission assignments alongside FEMA and other agencies. No one could have anticipated the COVID–19 pandemic, but we have seized an opportunity to develop questions that build on the existing study but are specific to these ongoing activities. These activities are an essential element of our agency’s COVID–19 pandemic response—one that is also essential to our mission to improve lives and strengthen communities. To further our mission in a time of increasing uncertainty, we aim to collect information on current activity that must be measured now in order to assess, identify, and make any identified programmatic changes. Peak performance of these projects is crucial to our agency’s COVID–19 pandemic response and public safety writ large. COVID–19 vaccine delivery is of increasing importance as COVID–19 pandemic continues an unpredictable course. In time, we hope, the pandemic will subside, but it is crucial we analyze these mission assignments now to make improvements that will literally save lives. How will this save lives? Currently, just over 59% of Americans are fully vaccinated against the virus (Source: CDC.gov, accessed 11/29/2021). AmeriCorps NCCC members are increasing access to vaccines and related activities through their service. Vaccines have proven to decrease severity and fatalities from the COVID– 19 virus. Programmatic improvements instituted ‘‘in real time’’ to enhance their efforts will lead to even greater access and a healthier public. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Dec 02, 2021 Jkt 256001 maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
