Need and Use of Information Collection: The Indian Health Service (IHS) goal is to raise the health status of the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/ AN) people to the highest possible level by providing comprehensive health care and preventive health services. To support the HiS mission, the Director's Three Initiative was launched which is comprised of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HP/DP), Behavioral Health (BH) and Chronic Care (CC). The Director's Three Initiative is linked together in their aim to reduce health disparities and improve the health and wellness among the AI/AN populations through a coordinated and systematic approach to enhance health promotion, and chronic disease and mental health prevention methods at the local, regional, and national levels. To provide the product/service to IHS, Tribal, and Urban (I/T/U) programs, the Director's Three Initiative work together to develop a centralized program database of Best/Promising Practices (BPP). The purpose of this collection is to develop a database of BPP to be published on the IHS.gov Web site which will be a resource for program evaluation and for modeling examples of HP/DP, BH, and CC projects occurring in AI/AN communities. This is a request that OMB approves, under the Paperwork Reduction Act, an IHS information collection initiative to promote submission of ``Best and Promising Practices and Local Efforts'' among the I/T/U.
